How to Get People Into Your Sales Funnel

How to get people into your sales funnel

It’s not too late for you to create a digital product and start making a profit. You need a Roadmap FAST! (Don’t have time to read this right now? That’s totally okay, I just don’t want you to forget your Roadmap .)

Don’t feel like reading this article? No worries, press play below:

 

Have you guys ever clicked on something and then as soon as you see the content you think “I’m in a funnel”.

Or you purchased a info product and then later after purchasing it, realized that you were funneled into it.

That has happened to me many times.

By the end of this article, you’ll know exactly how to get people into your funnel and buying in no time.

What is a Sales Funnel?

A Sales Funnel is a consumer focused marketing model which illustrates the theoretical customers journey towards the purchase of a product or service.

When people hear the phrase “Sales Funnel” they think of sleazy sales pitches like “You can’t live without this product. Buy today!” OR they just feel plain ole disgusting “tricking or manipulating” people into buying their product.

I want you to know that a Sales Funnel is not either of those things and if you feel that way after you put your funnel in place, you’re doing it all wrong my friend.

The before math

There’s so many crucial things that need to be in place before you set up your funnel. Imagine inviting people over for a party but no one’s home and the lights are off when they show up. They’ll leave right?!

That’s NOT what you want!

Here are some major key things you need to have in place before setting up your Sales Funnel (no worries, we’ll touch on how to put it in place later):

  • Product
  • Opt-in(s)
  • Targeted audience interested in your content
  • Email list
  • Quality content

It’s really good to know what your product would be before setting up your funnel because the goal is to tailor your audiences entire experience towards that specific product.

You want your main product to be their only logical choice after landing inside of your funnel. For an example: If you’re hosting one of the most epic party’s of the year and you also happen to be an amazing photographer who took great photos of everyone at the party…of course they’re going to want to buy those really great photos that were taken of them at the most epic party of the year.

It’s a no brainer!giphy

That’s what you want. You want your main product to be a “no brainer” for your audience.

Really good examples of opt-ins would be:

  • eBooks
  • Guides
  • Webinars

It’s best if these products are free as you want to gain your audience trust. Your overall goal should be to add value to their life and in return for your services, you make a profit. Side note: as long as your pushing out quality content and adding value to your audiences life, even if they don’t buy your main product, you still gained a loyal follower. It’s a win-win.

Also, if you’re looking for ways to increase your chances of creating a viral pin so that your opt-in can attract thousands of interested readers. Check out this bomb article on how to push out viral pins on Pinterest.

Target Audience 

Finding and knowing who your target audience is before putting your funnel in place is important because without them it’s going to be very similar to looking for a needle in a hay-sack. (& I mean a very large hay-sack with one tiny needle)

When your content isn’t tailored towards one specific group of people or person, every now and then someone will purchase your product but in most cases, you’ll be reaching the wrong people.

Raise your hand if you’ve worked extremely hard on something only to make $0 in return.

It’s okay to admit it, trust me no one is looking. giphy (1)

That was me too!

One thing I can tell you for sure is that back then, I had no idea who my target audience was. It’s easy to feel like it’s not important to focus on but it is EVERYTHING!

I’ll even share with you guys a worksheet from my discontinued course that has helped hundreds of people pinpoint their target audience.

If you’re serious, you want you create an avatar. This avatar is going to be who your content is for. If you were creating content for only one person in the world, who would that person be? Whenever you’re creating anything… courses, articles, info products, you want to market to them, your ideal customer.

Here are some of the things you want to think about when creating your avatar:

  • Name
  • Sex
  • What kind of life do they want
  • How much money do they want to make
  • What stresses them out
  • What makes them happy
  • Their personality type
  • Who is their competition

All of these things are listed in the worksheet here.

How to get people into your funnel

After you’ve put in place the “before math” and all the lights are on before people get to the party, it’s time to promote, promote, promote.

One major way to kill the lifespan of your funnel is to only put out one opt-in in hopes that it’s going to bring thousands of people into your funnel and buying your product.

That’s like passing out one flyer in hopes that your party is going to be flooded with people. The odds of that happening is slim to none!

Every time someone clicks on anything that belongs to your brand you want them to be somewhere inside of your funnel.

If they’re clicking on a pin about vegan recipes, you want that pin to take them to an article with delicious vegan recipes and inside of that article, you want to place another amazing opt-in related to the article to keep the funnel going.

The key to a healthy Sales Funnel is to ALWAYS keep your audience in your funnel. No, you’re not a sleazy salesman, you’re providing value to someones life and they will later thank you for it.

Make Money Blogging In 2019

https___unlockingyoursuccess.online_2019_01_07_10-ways-to-make-money-blogging_ (1)You’ve been putting in the hard work every single day. Pinning on Pinterest, being engaged on Facebook and Instagram, writing quality content…but you still feel like you’re not making what you deserve. No worries, we can fix that.

Making money blogging is not something that’s far fetched, normal people like me are making it happen everyday and so can you. I bet you’re thinking, “how am I to get started if I have no clue what I’m doing or I’m a beginner at this?” No worries, we can fix that too.

Today I’m going to go over how you can make $100k+ per year as a blogger

(If you’re still wondering if this is possible for you, it absolutely is! If you believe in Santa Clause for 8 years, you can believe in your self for like 5 minutes.)

Last week I received a $1,348 from an affiliate through a blog post that I haven’t edited in months.

When it came through I was sitting next to my brother which I shared the news with. He was shocked, because he didn’t think blogging was something people actually made money from. If you’re still thinking about starting a blog in 2019, here’s a good place to start.

He honestly thought that I just sit and play around on the computer all day. His exact words were “how do you make money blogging?”

To be honest, it was so hard to sum it up into just one answer. Then I figured that he may not be the only one wondering “how do all of these people make money blogging?”

I used to sit online all day doing surveys and transcribing, which don’t get me wrong you can make money with those options. However, I knew I deserved more for my hard work and I believe that you do too!

So today, I’m going to give you legit ways you can make money blogging! If you already have an idea, you can check out actionable steps here.

Here is how to make $100,000+ per year online

>> JUST A HEADS UP: there are only 7 spots left open in the Six-Figure Sales Funnel for May, (this my course that teaches how to build your sales funnel, and my exact formula I use to make $10,000 per month blogging) and because there are a few spots left open I decided to offer 50% off for the last few of you who want to join the course making it only $19 the discount is auto applied at checkout.

A few times throughout this post I mention The Six-Figure Sales Funnel because I am super passionate about it, and it’s my way to truly help people not be confused like I was when I started my blog. The spots will probably fill up in the next few hours so if you are interested you can learn more / join the course by clicking here

If you enroll you will get immediate life-time access.

After the spots fill up I’ll remove this part from the post, and you won’t be able to join again until the next launch in June so if you are seeing this, there are still a few spots open.

This blog post gives some great guidance but not as much as I give in the video tutorials in my course.

(On to the juicy part of this post)

1. Start by setting realistic goals

At first, it will be hard setting goals about how much money you plan to make because you may not have anything to base your set amount off of. Just keep that in mind when you are getting started. Your goals will become more head on as you go.

When setting your initial goals earning $10,000+ a month when you have no products to sell and no followers may not be ideal. Starting small with $100-$500 is a good place to start.

My first month blogging goals were:

  • Earn: $100 I planned on using it to invest back into my site being that I spent $49 on hosting
  • Pinterest Followers: 100

Now my goals look much more like this:

  • Earn: $20,000 per month. Currently saving for a new home.
  • Schedule 100+ pins a day (using Tailwind once a week)
  • Write 1 Weekly Newsletter using MailChimp.
  • Grow my Pinterest Following 500 a month.

GOALS ARE SO IMPORTANT!

Thinking about the amount of money you want to make for the things you want in life makes it so much easier to want to wake up and work for your goals everyday.

Thinking about being able to create the freedom you deserve because of the blogging business you created started to pay off.

Start your own money making blog

Before you can make money blogging or online, you need to actually build a site right? Starting a blog or building a site can be a lot to take on. There is so much you need to know, and it can seem hard if you’re a one man show.

I get a lot of emails from people who want to start their own blogs or build their own site.

I figured the best way to answer all these questions would be to create a FREE ( did I mention it’s free?) 7 Day email course.

Which will teach you all of the basics on to completely kick-starting your money making blogging/online success.

I totally suggest taking it if you don’t already have a blog (or if you do already have a blog and want the advice) because I really want to help you live the life you and I both know you deserve. Here is a more detailed guide of what we go over in it!

  • Day 1: Finding your Niche
  • Day 2: Building your brand
  • Day 3: Deciding on your product
  • Day 4: How you’re going to deliver your product
  • Day 5: Building your posting schedule
  • Day 6: Starting and building your mailing list
  • Day 7: Describing a sales funnel (if you want the exact sales funnel myself and others have used to make a profit and up to $100,000+ per year, you can learn more here.)

2. Focus on one marketing platform

Currently, I focus on Pinterest being that it is my #1 source for traffic.

Side note: If you are new to blogging, but really want to increase the money you make blogging there are a few things that I recommend

Tailwind: Tailwind is a Pinterest scheduler I use daily.

With Tailwind you can find new things to pin by using group boards called Tribes, or searching within Tailwind.

By using Tailwind I have increased the amount of views I get on Pinterest drastically. Tailwind has changed my life. If you want to find out more you can sign up for a free tailwind account here.

3. I Make Most of My Money from my Sales Funnel

Having a sales funnel in place is SO important as a blogger. Not having or making enough money is so disappointing, especially when you so desperately want blogging to become your job like I did in the beginning.

For months I was unsatisfied with my income because I thought I didn’t need a sales funnel and I was making it out to be this impossible really hard thing to put in place.

After months of research and trial and error I finally figured out how to build a sales funnel and properly funnel people into it. This is KEY if you want to make money blogging.

The key to having a bomb sales funnel that works:

  • Knowing what your product is
  • Knowing who your audience is
  • Automation in place
  • Email list
  • Knowing how to target your audience
  • Knowing how and where and what times to post your products and opt-ins

If you want the specifics like:

  • What to send to your email list – exact scripting
  •  How and where and what times to post your products and opt-ins
  • How to funnel traffic into your sales funnel
  • How to pull money out of a small email list
  • How to grow your income to $100,000+ per year

Then I highly recommend taking my digital course The Six-Figure Sales Funnel which is currently available until the last 7 spots for May fill up, then I will take it down for a while to help the people who enroll start profitable blogs.

If you didn’t know The Six-Figure Sales Funnel is a course I created to:

  • Give you my exact break down on how to build your sales funnel and then get people into it like yesterday.

  • Teach you how to get people onto your mailing list.

  • Teach you how to pull money out of a small list because YES the money is in the list.

  • Teach you how to drive targeted traffic to your opt-ins.

  • Teach you how to learn who your audience is.

  • Teach you exactly when to send your sales emails and exactly what to say to make the sale.

Did I mention that: there are only 7 spots left open in The Six-Figure Sales Funnel for May, and the spots are 50% off for the last few of you who want to join the course making it only $19 and no worries, the code is auto applied at checkout.

After the spots fill up I’ll remove this part from the post, and you won’t be able to join again until the next launch in June so if you are seeing this, there are still a few spots open.

If you enroll you will get immediate life-time access.

Below are 10 avenues you can use to make money blogging or in your online business

Affiliate Links

Affiliate links are looked over all the time by digital entrepreneurs looking to monetize their business.

I’ve made tons of money over the years with affiliate links without really trying. I just kind of said “hey, here’s this really cool thing that has worked for me and maybe it’ll work for you too.”

Depending on which company you’re working with, you can profit thousands of dollars, I’ve seen it happen!

eBooks

eBooks are a great way to make money with your digital business. We are in the era of information, where there’s a lot of it floating around and it’s really easy to get. Why not become apart of that to leverage your income?

I’ve created a couple of eBooks one of which gained the audience of hundreds of readers. You can check them out here.

If you’ve been thinking about creating an eBook but you’re not exactly sure how, or where to start, click here to gain access to the free resource library containing the perfect guide that will walk you through the process step by step.

I use Shoptly and Kindle Direct to upload and sell all of my eBooks.

Virtual Assistant

Becoming a virtual assistant is one of the best ways to make money digitally. Especially if you’re someone who runs a blog being that you can market your services to your already engaged audience.

Many bloggers have become virtual assistants as a way to work in their field, gain flexibility, and still support themselves financially while building their business.

Even if you can’t find work as a virtual assistant, there’s a ton of WAH jobs out there just waiting for you to snatch them up. Check out 20 of them here.

Advertising

This is another major source that many people overlook when trying to monetize their blog.

For many bloggers, ads have become a main source of income. I will be realistic with you to give you some kind of idea on how much you can make and what you need to do to make a certain amount. In order to make anywhere from $800-$1600/month you would need to bring in around at least 100k page views per month.

I know that can seem like a lot however, if you check out this article on how to gain thousands of viewers through Pinterest in a couple of days, you’ll be there in no time!

Promotion

One of the main things I absolutely love about Instagram and Youtube, is that there’s promo everywhere!

It’s a win-win for both parties, the company gains exposure, popularity, and sales from referrals while the blogger earns actual cash from the company.

It’s an exchange process.

Normally how it works is either a company will reach out to you or you’ll reach out to a company to market/review their product to your audience in exchange for profit.

Passive Income

>>> DON’T FORGET there are only 7 spots left open in The Six-Figure Sales Funnel for May, and the spots are 50% off. The code is auto applied at checkout.

After the spots fill up I’ll remove this part from the post, and you won’t be able to join again until the next launch in June.

If you enroll you will get immediate life-time access.

Passive income, means literally to make money in your sleep. This is the ultimate goal for most people.

If you’re someone whose wanting to some day wake up to random deposits in your account that you can actually live off of, working towards passive income is what you want to do.

This can be done  in many different ways. A great example would be creating a course or or workshop similar to these.

You want your content to be something that your viewers can access and gain from year-round. A great example would be this article. I published it almost a year ago, however I’m still profiting from it today.

The amazing part about passive income is that you get to choose what you want to create and then profit from your own creation.

Online Store

I’ve seen many bloggers attach an online store to their blog. It’s almost as if it’s expected for bloggers to have some kind of store or “shop” tab within their blog.

What you choose to sell within that store is totally up to you.

I’ve known others to make thousands of dollars off drop shipping alone, and then sell a course on how others can do the same.

Freelance

Recently, there’s been a plethora of bloggers and just overall digital content creators turning to freelancing as a source of full time income.

I myself have freelanced in the past and I still do some freelance work occasionally.

It is not wrong to use your audience to market your services. With them being already primed with your personality type and way of life, they are more susceptible to trust you with their money in exchange for your services.

Amazing platforms that others have seen major profit from within the freelance community are Fiverr and Upwork.

Paid Memberships 

Paid memberships, are something that many bloggers don’t think about doing.

For an example, when you’re paying $9/month for Netflix to continue steaming amazing tv shows every week it doesn’t seem like much right? It’s way cheaper than cable and you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck.

On the flip side, imagine 1,000,000 people using Netflix all paying the same $9/month fee, well that’s $9,000,000/month for one company!

You can take that same concept and apply it to your blog! Actually, I hope that you do!

Donations

Depending on what kind of blog you’re running and what kind of community you’ve built, it may be perfectly okay to ask for donations.

If you’re someone like me who doesn’t like to be too pushy, just leave a “donate” link at the end of each article or create a specific page where your audience can go to donate.
