What's the point of running an online business, if you cannot generate sales? At the end of the day, that is what it comes down to ? sales.

Making sales is one the hardest aspects of running an online business. Everything else, is secondary. All of you hard work and effort will either make you money or not. One of the reason why I wrote this article is to provide some simple and straightforward techniques you can apply today. Follow my instructions, and you will see a increase in revenue.

The money is in the list. This is a very popular slogan that many top internet marketers keep repeating. As for me, I was very slow to adopt this mantra. I was more focused on making money. I did not see the connection between growing a mailing list and generating sales. As a result, it took me much longer to start making profits online. Building a mailing list is one the most important things you can do for your online business. Remember, most people, will not but the first time around, that is why you need to collect their name and email address, so you can follow up with them.

You may not believe it but many potential customers will arrive on your order page, and then simply leave. Sound strange doesn't it? Not really, once you understand why they are leaving. It's called shopping cart abandonment and it can kill your sales ratio. Here's how it works, when a buyer arrives on your order page and notices it looks completely different than your sales page, they get scarred off and just leave. Believe it or not, you can increase sales by up to 40% simply by adding your header graphic on the order page.

When it comes to generating sales online, placing all your eggs in one basket is a major mistake. You need to advertise across as many channels as possible. For example, article marketing is good place to start since you will establish yourself as an authority in your field. It also has some significant SEO benefits in terms of back links. However, you would be remiss if you did not engage in other forms of advertising. Failure to diversity will result in less sales.

Now, what are you waiting for? Apply these techniques and start making more money!
