Landing pages are one of the best ways to sell products online and collect email leads. But building them yourself is tough! Especially if you are a non-techie and lack any coding or design skills. By default, WordPress itself doesn’t offer much help for creating well-designed landing pages. The default editor is just not well suited for this.
There’s a lot I love about selling my own private label products on Amazon. I can take advantage of Amazon’s enormous traffic to make sales and Amazon’s FBA program eliminates many of the hurdles I would normally face when selling physical products online. All this has enabled me to create a 7-figure Amazon FBA business.
I’ve tested a lot of email service providers over the course of my business and I feel the one that gets underrated quite a bit is GetResponse. It doesn’t have the name recognition of an Aweber, ConvertKit or Drip, but I’ve found it to be one of the most well-rounded email service providers out there in terms of features. And it comes at an affordable price.
Running an eCommerce store can be a little overwhelming. Between managing products, finding customers, fulfilling orders, and, oh yeah, keeping your customers happy, it can be hard to keep track of everything you should be doing to make your store a success. With the right set of tools, though, you can create systems that simplify your business and put your store on the path ...
For my Amazon FBA business, I’ve been really working hard on building my brand on Instagram. I’ve found that it is hands down the best social media platform out there for creating brand awareness around my fitness products. In niches like fitness, Instagram users love posting photos and videos of themselves performing different exercises and workouts.
Thrive Themes is one of my favorite software marketing companies out there today. They create great products that I actually use, and they consistently improve and update them over their lifetime. My first introduction to Thrive came a few years ago when they launched an innovative page builder called Thrive Content Builder. At the time it was released, there was nothing like it.
Have you been looking for the best way to sell digital online? Coupled with the right idea and marketing you can easily start making money right away from the comfort of your home. It all sounds simple, but for some, setting up the required techie stuff is the major road block to launching your own online product.
Sending out broadcast emails and setting up autoresponder series is something every small business should be doing. Which is why having a reliable email service provider (ESP) in your toolbox is so important. These days, all ESPs can handle these basic capabilities. So what I personally look for in a great email service provider are its marketing automation features.
If you sell a product or service online, you are losing money everyday. This is from a concept known as cart abandonment. These are visitors to your site that end up on your checkout page, but don’t actually order. Baymard Institute tracked 33 different studies and found that 68.63% users abandoned their shopping carts.
Email marketing and lead generation are essential for running a successful online business these days. But to make it all work, you need to have certain pieces in place. For example you might use ActiveCampaign to collect leads and send out emails. Perhaps you have a LeadPages account to create a highly converting landing page.
Marketing automation is all the rage these days. Every email service provider seems to be adding marketing automation capabilities to their products. At it’s core, marketing automation involves setting up a sequence of email campaigns to go out to a targeted segment of your list, with a targeted message, at the right time.
Scarcity is one of the best ways to improve your conversions and marketers use scarcity techniques all the time to boost their sales. In the book Influence, Robert Cialdini tells a story about two groups of people. One group was given a jar with ten cookies, while the other group got a jar with two cookies.
If you ask for advice from owners of huge websites, the one thing they’ll probably tell you to do – aside from creating rich content, of course – is to start building your email list. But, the thing is, collecting emails can be intimidating work. And, as if that is not enough, small business owners have to deal with a steep learning curve and expensive price tags.
I think we can all agree by now, that email marketing is one of the best marketing channels to master to create a successful website. Not only will it become one of your best traffic sources, but it will likely drive the most sales for you as well. Plus it's not subject to the whims of random algorithm changes like you would from Google search or Facebook Ads.

Most of us are aware of the powerhouse email service provider that is Aweber. However, some may not be aware of their recently released campaigns feature which adds some much needed marketing automation to its list of features. It’s something that Aweber lacked and that other email service providers like Active Campaign and Convert Kit, have had for a while now.
LeadPages has always been one of the fastest, easiest ways to create and publish beautiful landing pages that are proven to convert. All without ever having to touch a piece of code. But that simplicity has often come at a price. Historically, you’ve been locked into existing template designs and there’s been a limitation on how much you can customize or differentiate your landing pages.
Recently I had a friend ask me for help setting up an eCommerce store to sell her products online. She had her products ready to sell, but wasn’t confident in her ability to put together an online store by herself. Now, I had never built my own eCommerce store either, so I took it upon myself to do some research on what it would take to build one.
