  • Who Is Your Ideal Client? Write out their characteristics and find an actual picture to represent them.
  • Where Can You Find Them? What email newsletters and blogs do they read? What other interests do they have?
  • What Bait Will You Use to Attract Them?  For example, a physical book, or a recording. Anything that would match what your ideal customer would want.
  • What Result Do You Want To Give Your Clients? Once you (and they) understand that concept, then the price is no longer a problem.

You Need a Value Ladder

The value ladder revolves around selling to a customer over and over again. It can help build additional layers of income and provide more ongoing value for your customer.

What is the first thing you have to build out before starting working on any sales funnel? The goal is to take the client to a place where you can provide the most value and charge them the most. Then you want to add a good continuity program you can bill for each month. You should give insane amounts of value at each step.

From a Ladder to a Funnel

A sales funnel is the online process you take someone through to get them to move through the different levels of your value ladder.

The top of the funnel is the bait that will attract your dream customers.  The deeper your funnel, the more things you can offer your clients, and the more each customer will be worth to you.

When you’ve found your target audience, ask:

  • Who Is Your Target Market? What are their pains and passions? What do they desire?
  • Where does your target market congregate? Where do they hang out online? What newsletter and blogs do they read and what Facebook groups they are a part of? What are they searching for on Google?
  • How can you get a customer to leave the congregation and check out your page? Your ads must grab people’s attention.

The Soap Opera Sequence

When somebody joins your list for the first time, it’s important to quickly build a bond between them and the Attractive Character.

The key to making this sequence work:

  • Email #1: Set the stage: a thank you note
  • Email #2: Open with high drama.  Explain how you hit a wall and then found the answer. But don’t give the answer yet.
  • Email #3: Epiphany.
  • Email #4: Hidden benefits when using your product: Use parables to demonstrate those hidden benefits
  • Email #5: Urgency and CTA. Create a special sale that ends soon or give readers a coupon that expires in 24h.

  1. Organic content marketing (A slow and long burn can take years)
  2. PPC spend on social media (Expensive and requires serious skill)
  3. Using affiliates (Hard to enrol unless you have a converting offer)

Essentially, it’s hard to start. It’s even harder to continue going for the long term.
