I was asked two questions.
What is a Sales Funnel?
How do you build one?
Here is my answer
Anyone that has turned their computers on and done anything with Internet Marketing no matter what niche they are in has heard that you have to have a sales funnel to build your business.
Now when I was growing up you used a funnel to pour something from one container into another container but I don’t think that is what they are talking about.
A sales funnel is where your use a free product to get someone to sign up to your mailing list that is hosted on an autoresponder.
After they are on your mailing list then, you send them good content that benefits them and helps you build a relationship of trust with them. Because of the trust that is built you are then able to introduce them to products that actually do help them reach their goals.
That is a Sales Funnel the way it is supposed to be done.
What happens most of the time is that you sign up to someone’s autoresponder list for a free product and the product doesn’t live up to what it claims to be. Then you are immediately hammered with a One-Time Offer of the next great product to come down the road.
Has anybody had that happen to them?
How did you like it?
Most of the One Time Offer products they are selling is something that they know nothing about, but someone told them it would make them money.
Then once on their list their emails are nothing but long advertisements for products that again are designed to make them money.
They have no concern at all about if it will help you or not.
So there are two types of sales funnels.
One sales funnel that works for the long-term and will build you a business that helps earn you money.
The other sales funnel takes your money faster than a fox eats a chicken and then tries to do it again.
One is a good business model, and the other is a let me sell you anything I can so I make money from you.
If you are looking for the second model of sales funnel and you want to learn how to add people to the list so you can market things that you have no knowledge of just to make money then stop reading. Stop reading and go away.
If you want to learn how to build a sales funnel and drive traffic to it, then here is one place I recommend.
