How To Make Sales Online

Feb 6, 2008
Yesterday, we found some products for our niche and now, we need to show our niche what what we have! We will do this through emails, a web site and a blog. You should see quickly how to make sales online using these three tools.

An email is by far the easiest way to tell people about what you have to offer. And if you are selling affiliate products, you don't even need a website or a blog. All you have to do is put your affiliate link in your email and when your readers click on the link, they will be taken to the product web page and if they buy, you will get a commission.

You can also use a blog to sell or display your products. You don't need your own website. All you need is a free account (available at www.blogger.com). Write your blog posting and use it to showcase your products. Using a free blog, you can sell anything from physical products to information products and even affiliate products.

Finally, you can display your products on a web page. A website gives you flexibility and control over the final look, though this comes at a price. Before you spend your money on a domain name, hosting, and website, consider the following.

The most profitable website is the single-page site (also known as the Sales Letter). The average website is full of products, with dozens of links that divert customers before they even know what's on the site.

What you need is a single web page that is focused on one thing and one thing only - the product you are trying to sell. You want to emphasize the benefits of your product - what is in it for your customer. And the last thing you need is distracting links or navigation buttons that take your visitor AWAY from your product!

To buy, or not to buy - that is the question in the hearts and minds of your customers. If they are confused and distracted, they won't buy. Once they arrive on your product page, don't give them a reason to leave. Make it inviting, and give them a reason to buy.
