1. What kind of business? To me this is the most important thing you will need to consider.

Do you have any specific skills you can use to start a business? There are people who use the Internet to run a home based business that takes them outside of their home.

You have no doubt heard over and over how important it is to build a list if you are going to be successful as an internet marketer. Have you finally built a list of subscribers and find that they are unresponsive to your messages?

It’s unfortunate that the importance of list building is stressed so much without the companion piece of how to develop your list. A reactive list of 1000 people can be much more profitable than a non-responsive list with 10,000 people. So let’s take a look at 4 easy ways to cultivate your list in the most effective way possible.

1. Frequency of Messages

How often should you send e-mails? Unfortunately, there is no right answer which can be applied to all situations because of the whole host of factors that come into play. In order to achieve the right balance you will need to split test in multiple groups with different frequencies.

I suggest that you send out 5 to 10 e-mails in order to determine which frequency is best. It is important to note that in order to ensure that this test provides you with accurate results that you do not change any other variables aside from the delivery frequency.

2. Require Action

One of the most important aspects of making your list take action is to provide them with content that requires it.  While you should always be educating your list and providing them with free content, you should also be getting them to take action whenever possible.

Even though you may be mainly providing educational content, you should still ask them to do something once they read it, like taking a survey, or filling out worksheets for themselves.

There are times you will send them content which is both educational and promotional. At those times you need to create a sense of urgency or make your readers feel special by offering an exclusive, limited time discount. It is important to condition them to take action, otherwise they won’t.

3. Take Time to Learn About Your Readers

If you don’t know much about you readers, how will you have any idea what they want? This aspect of “list cultivation” is often neglected. We tend to devote so much of our effort to the list building and the bottom line that we forget to make an effort to find out the interests and needs of our readers.

Your offers should be either in your niche or a closely related one. it is also important that you only promote products that you would buy yourself or have already bought and tested Additionally, you should always include some valuable content with your pitch. That way everyone benefits from each e-mail, even if they are not interested in that specific product.  You should also test multiple different offer formats to determine which one your readers respond to the most.

4.Use an Autoresponder

It is important to set up a series of e-mails to ensure that you are actively preparing your list with interesting and informative earl on in order to capture their interest. The best way to do this is with an autoresponder. Two of the best are Aweber and Get Response.

The autoresponder will save you time, once you get it set up, and will reduce the number of customer service issues that can arise. You will also be able to personalize your emails .Additionally, you will have the ability to “broadcast” messages to your list to help keep them up to date and to make them aware of any “specials” you may have to offer.

If you use these ways to develop your list you will be well on your way to increased profits.

There are many benefits to be derived from ahome based internet business that a traditional off-line business simply cannot provide. To begin with it requires much less capital to start an online business than it does a conventional bricks-and-mortar business.

The chief thing you need to begin is a computer with internet access. This gives you two immediate advantages over a conventional business. First, you will have the ability to promote to a worldwide market. Second, your business will remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

However, neither of these two advantages will guarantee your success. There are six important steps that you need to take to stand a good chance of success with a home-based business on the Internet.

1. Focus on a niche. The Internet is a very competitive market place so it makes sense to narrow your focus and find a specific niche market, one that is of interest to you and which offers a reasonable prospect of making money.

It will also help if you have some expertise in the subject; although this is not an absolute. Short of that; select something that you can feel passionate about. This will give you the opportunity to do something you enjoy and allow you to benefit from what you already know.

2. Choose a product. You have a head start should you have a product you can sell online. However, the majority of us do not. Not to worry; because another great thing about the Internet is that you can find a myriad of products to sell.

The most common way to make money selling something online, especially for beginners, is to join an affiliate program. Clickbank, and Amazon are two of the more popular programs and are free as is Google Adsense.

You can also make money with pay per click (PPC) advertising, cost per action (CPA) programs.

3. Select a domain name for your website. Here you have several options. One is to use the name of your product. Another is to use the primary keywords that best describe your business, and finally you may choose to use your own name.

Always go for “.com” as your first choice for the suffix for your domain. If it isn’t available “.net” would be my next choice.

4. Set up website hosting. You can check on Google for ratings of hosting companies and there are many. It is important to select a reliable one and a couple of popular companies I can recommend are BlueHost.com and HostGator.com.

5. Set up your website. This can be very difficult if you have no experience in this area and it can also be costly. This sometimes causes people to hesitate getting started online. However, an easy and inexpesive way to do this is to install WordPress on your web hosting site.

Most good quality hosting companies have an easy WordPress installation program in your CPanel admin area. You can use that to set up a WordPress blog with just a few clicks of your mouse.

6. Promote your business. This is the most important thing you need to do. You can have the most attractive website with great sales copy, but if no one can find it to read it, it will make you very little if any money.

Getting back links to your website can be a very monotonous and slow process. The number and quality of back links are important for your page rank because the major search engines see a back link as a vote for your site. Although there are a number of services and software that you can use to generate links automatically, the most valuable links are those that occur naturally.

Those links tend to come from websites that are updated frequently and tend to carry more weight in the eyes of search engines. Regrettably, not every piece of content you create will get the attention of other bloggers and webmasters.

So the job for you is to create content that is worth linking to. This type of content is referred to as link bait. Let’s look at 5 types of content that you can use to get more links to your site.

1. Lists
The most universally used type of link based content is lists. However, keep in mind when creating list-based content it has to be extremely valuable in order to get others to link to it

One of the easiest ways to create a list that stands out is to go for total quantity. By compiling a list of 50 or 100 of the best resources on a single topic you can create a post that is truly valuable and can be a time saver for readers. .Another type of list is based around quality. Although normally more difficult to create, it is apt be the most effective over time.

2. Information graphics
Infographics is a resource that more and more people are starting to use. However, they do require both a lot of time and a lot of thought and are not that widespread at this point. You can find some infographic software that is free to download on Google.

Information graphics can be effective as long as the graphics provide some sort of actual value because it then takes only a relatively small amount of content to make it work. The 2 main benefits of infographics are that it can be an easy way to get your point across and can also be entertaining.

3. Exclusive Content
This type of content is created based on something that is entirely yours. One of the best ways to do this is by publishing the results of a short study. With so many different online polling tools, it is really easy to gather some statistics of your own with very little time or effort.

You can then use the statistics to create an article that is timely and valuable. Not only will you get links right away after these types of posts but also months or years down the road when other people refer to that study as a starting point or trending comparison with their own study.

4. Offer A Free Download
A reliable way to get links to a particular post is simply to offer a free download that is exclusive to that page. Keep in mind that the anchor text for those links will probably be the title of the report so it is vital to include your target keyword within the title of it.

These are a few of the many ways of getting back links to your website, and that can be a subject for another article. One of those ways though is to comment on sites that are related to your niche.Why not start by leaving your comment on my site?
