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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
