Although there are all kinds of variations, the bottom lines is that a sales funnel gives you a single place to advertise. You only need a single list of prospects, a single blog, a single squeeze page or LCP. You need one place to advertise.

 

If you have twenty-five different products, you don’t need to try advertising each one. You need a funnel with one defined entry point. Once people sign up to your list, in time they will find out about everything you have to offer, and find something they like and become a buyer / client. You may have two lists – one for those who have purchased and the other for those who have not. But, to start you only need one list. Building a list is one of the most important things you need to do.

 

Owning a WordPress dot org blog is the way to get organic (free) traffic. You can place your lead capture form on it and all your products and/or your affiliate merchandise.

 

Here are three technical aspect of setting up an Internet sales funnel. You need a:

 

1) Lead Capture Page (LCP)

 

A lead capture page is a web page you send your traffic to; make your main purpose clear, which is to click on the button and enter their information. Don’t have distractions on the page that keep them from seeing the call to action. You can do an online search for LCP examples to get an idea how they should look. Your LCP will direct prospects to your sales page.

 

2) Sales Page

 

Your sales page will provide a solution to prospects problems. You can use a video (bridge video) for an introduction where they can see you. Introduce yourself, relate to them, introduce them to the solution, and then send them to the sales page. Present a sense of urgency; limited time or limited space to bring them to the call to action. You can use the video before or after the capture page. It depends on what and how you’re promoting.

 

You might be promoting a webinar that shows the benefits of your product or service. In which case, you will have used a LCP to get signups, and then present an offer at the end of the webinar.

 

Make the bridge video short, concise, and to the point. It’s used to build a rapport with the audience. Then send them to a sales video which will be longer and presents the solutions and benefits to problems they may be experiencing. The next step is sending them to the sales page, which offers more details of your offer or product. Show your prospects the advantages of having or using it. Discuss the main points in more detail. Don’t list every little detail or feature or button; just the main points that relate to your audience or prospects. If you’re selling for someone other than yourself, the sales pages are usually already done for you.

 

3) Follow Up

 

You need a way to contact prospects; an email service to send all the information you’re obtaining from the LCP. This is the backbone of your funnel. This is where you send all the information from the capture page. You can search the Internet for such services. You want to continue to build rapport with the list of people you now have. You want to continue to build on your interaction with them. Do this with an email service which provides an autoresponder. This is the backbone of your sales funnel.

 

With an autoresponder you can set up follow-up emails for whatever you wish and for as long as you want. You can set these messages to go out at certain intervals and for whatever period of time you wish. If you have something special to offer at any point, you can send a broadcast just for that.

 

You’ll be well on your way to online business success using these 3 Technical Aspects of Setting Up An Internet Sales Funnel: A lead capture page, a sales page, and an autoresponder.

In James Stone’s article, Building an Internet Sales Funnel for Your Products, he starts with the question, “What is a sales funnel?” In his discussion he points out the benefits of setting up a sales funnel for your business. A sales funnel, which can be used in almost any business, gives you a single place to advertise, and you only need one list, one blog, and a single squeeze page.

 

You need a place (funnel) to advertise that has one entry point for all your products and/or affiliate products. Once people are on your list, they will find out about everything you have to offer, and hopefully become a customer at some point.

 

You need a WordPress blog that will be working for you all the time to bring in organic traffic, which is free traffic. You use an autoresponder and your squeeze page, which builds your list, to automatically let your prospects know everything you have to offer.

 

A sales funnel for your business is a single blog for which you write useful material to attract internet traffic. Posting quality material to your blog on a regular basis brings this free traffic to your site (blog).

 

Doc Stone says, “You know, it will be a lot of work at first to get this built. But once it’s built, life gets a lot easier. You really can spend just a few hours a day tweaking your system and doing your marketing.” (Read Article)

Internet Marketing Sales Funnel

photo from blog

 

In order to build an effective Internet Marketing Sales Funnel (Click to read Internet Sales Funnel) you need to first set up a lead capture system to get prospects emails so that you can follow up with them later via an autoresponder. You do not want to send your prospects directly to your offer page only to have them decide not to buy what you have and then lose them forever. The entire concept of a funnel is to get as many people as you can into your system to buy from you at some later date even if they do not purchase anything right away.

 

After you get their email address you should use your autoresponder to follow up with them and give them another offer. This could be a front-end product, a one-time-only offer or some up-sale item. Make the product or service valuable enough so they will want to buy. Show them how it will solve a problem for them. The one-time-only (OTO) offer and up-sale products can be related and compliment the first purchase. The OTO is a specially priced item that will disappear when the person leaves the page. You can also offer a down-sell which is a watered down version of the initial product purchase but still has value. There are many ways to sell to people once they are in your funnel and you have their email addresses.

 

When using your autoresponder to send emails to prospects, do not always sell! Offer tips, ask questions and offer updates for upcoming webinars, etc. No one wants to be constantly sold.

 

Be sure you have a range of different products and services available for those who are serious about building their business. Be sure to keep your Internet Marketing Sales Funnel filled by advertising your lead capture pages.

**Writing good and targeted content and articles on your blog

**Building a list using email signups through your blog by offering free gifts
