Connie Ragen Green Get Started OnlineMy name is Connie Ragen Green and I teach people just like you how to build a profitable online business and use the basic technology needed to get started in this fun and lucrative field. The first year (2006) was difficult for me online, and I ended up spending about 10K and making almost no money. I vowed that my students would not have to struggle like I did.

I have now been making my full-time income online since 2006, and earn a comfortable income, primarily from my own programs and courses, information products, and affiliate marketing. I teach new online entrepreneurs how to write short reports, eBooks, and books for Kindle, as well as how to set up your own blog, set up mini-sites, use Twitter and Facebook, create your own information products, and write your own web sales copy, which is copywriting for the Internet.

My motto is: “If I can do it, YOU can do it!”

I took one of my students, Helen Raptoplous, to 10K a month during 2011 as part of the 10K Laser Coaching program, did it again in 2012/2013 with student Geoff Hoff, and am now working with entrepreneur Adrienne Dupree during 2014/2015. This will help you to do the same thing in your online business, so please join us.

Offline Business Marketing

Offline Business MarketingOffline business marketing continues to be a part of what I do, yet I seldom discuss the strategies that work well for these brick and mortar businesses. I’ll share some of what I did recently with a small business that provides drapery cleaning, as well as some other services for residential and commercial customers.

Every business must answer the question ‘What’s for sale?’ if they are to become and remain profitable. You may think that your prospects and even your current clients know exactly what you have to offer, but that may not always be the case. Let’s use the drapery cleaning business as an example. Without knowing anything more than what type of business this is, it would be safe to assume that cleaning draperies would be the logical service they offer. But what about other related services, such as cleaning upholstery, blinds and shutters, and even carpets? Would these also be logical services for this type of company to offer their prospects and customers?

By writing a sales page for your primary products and services, you can accomplish two goals. One is to let people know exactly what you do have to offer and the other is to make sure you are not leaving any money on the table by omitting products and services that you take for granted after being in business for a number of years or losing money by offering something that does not add enough to your bottom line.

Start with a general headline that grabs the attention of your reader and entices them to continue reading. For this business, something like ‘Do You Have Draperies As Old As Your High School Age Daughter, Yet They Haven’t Been Cleaned Since She Was In Kindergarten?’ That headline will definitely speak to many readers and will get them to continue reading down the page. You would go on to tell them about the germs and parasites that are hiding in their drapes, as well as some other problems that can arise when you live with unsanitary conditions.

Next, tell a little about the history of how your business was started, and what your vision is for running your business. Perhaps it was a family business started by your grandfather, or it came into existence after you saw a need in the marketplace as a consumer some years ago. This is of great interest to potential customers. Further down on your sales page you will mention the other services your company has to offer, and how they are related to your primary service of drapery cleaning.

Use testimonials from existing clients, as well as lots of photographs of your work. Before and after pictures work extremely well for the purpose of demonstrating what you are capable of with a ‘show instead of tell’ approach. Now it’s time to make a list of what your company offers and see where the profit centers are located. Maybe you earn the most profit from cleaning draperies and upholstery, while not earning much from cleaning carpets. Then you must make the decision whether to abandon the carpet cleaning completely, offer it only to those who use your other services, or to refer this work to someone else in the community.

The bullet points of your sales letter will give you even more ideas as to what to offer. Perhaps a membership program, where customers pay monthly or annually for a specific list of services would make sense. Maybe a discount coupon for services would be appealing, where customers could pay a specific amount for the coupons that would be worth up to ten times as much as they paid for them. Be creative, while always thinking about your bottom line.

If you are willing to spend the time writing this type of sales letter, you may also uncover hidden revenue streams that you hadn’t thought about in the past. Setting up a referral program, where one client recommends a friend or neighbor and receives cash or a gift card would work well in your business. And make sure the completed sales letter gets printed out and posted online.

The recession is over, and now is the time to use smart marketing strategies to increase your business profits. Next week I’ll share more about how I market for non-profit groups and organizations. This has become my passion as I continue to see lives changed around the world by the work that is accomplished.

Online Marketing Tips Podcast: List Building For Your Business

List Building for Your BusinessList Building for Your Business

In this most recent podcast I discuss list building for your business, as well as the importance of becoming an author to build credibility, visibility, and profitability. I’ve written eleven books so far, as well as contributing to many other people’s books and compiling books of my own. Check out my published book titles here.

I take you on a virtual tour of this site, and how to promote each of your posts using SEO (search engine optimization), social media, and by emailing your current list of prospects and clients. You may also wish to write a book using your blog posts. I did this with my very first book, Huge Profits With A Tiny List, which was released in 2010. It consisted of fifty blog posts compiled into a book on how to use relationship marketing to increase your bottom line.

I also share how I got started as an affiliate marketer back in 2006, and how this topic is one I have expanded over the years to include a bestselling book on this topic, live presentations, online courses, and related information products. You can become an authority on most any topic by learning more about it on a continual basis, talking and writing about it, and actually doing it to show that what you know really works for you and for others.

Having the right tools to help you in your business is crucial, and I discuss the new CanvaKala plugin for WordPress that allows you to add images from dozens of sites, and even edit these images as a way to build engagement with your readers and for SEO benefits. Your blog will sparkle and attract more prospects when you have relevant images for every single post.

Finally, I share more about the changes to online marketing since I got started as an entrepreneur back in 2006. This includes changes in pricing of products, courses, training, and live events, as well as changes to the information that is actually shared with the online community. Social media accounts for some of these, but not all of, the changes I discuss. Getting started with your own product can be as simple as purchasing the PLR (private label rights) to someone else’s content. I did this from the very beginning and it worked out quite well for me. I also used to compile my best teleseminars and sell them in December as a ‘Best Of’ product. You could easily do that in 2015 by hosting your own call each week and then choosing the best ones to sell as an information product.

Are you already a part my list community and receiving my daily email updates? If not, please give me your first name and primary email address in the form on the right-hand side of this site. If you are brand new to my podcasts, you will be interested to know that this specific training call, as well as all of the calls in my podcast series is intended to teach you and other new online entrepreneurs how to take your business to the next level quickly and effectively, and as a way for me to share my exact methods, techniques, Case Studies, secrets, and advice on creating a profitable and lucrative online business using the ‘multiple income streams’ approach. People on six continents have now discovered that starting an Internet business is the very fastest way to achieve both time and financial freedom, as well as to great success in all areas of your life, and you need help to get there quickly. That’s why I started this online marketing tips podcast for my community.

You will see that each podcast session is first recorded live as a teleseminar, and then repurposed into a podcast to extend my reach to the world. Please join my list (opt in on the right) to be included on these calls, and be sure to introduce yourself and share your site for optimal exposure for years to come! Also, check out my Podcast Show Notes site to see how you can subscribe at no cost to both of my podcasts, and please leave me a review on one or both of them if you are so inclined.

This training has been completely updated for 2015 with the latest information, strategies, and Case Studies for you to use in your own business.

Please be sure to leave your comments below so that I may get to know you better and to serve you as you continue your journey as an online entrepreneur. Getting started with an online business will change your life forever and your success is my reward!

It’s All About The Traffic, ‘Bout The Traffic

how to drive traffic to your blogHow To Drive Traffic To Your Blog

If you are taking the time and making an effort to post to your blog on a regular basis, then knowing how to drive traffic to your blog after each post is sure to be of importance to you.

The very first thing I do after publishing my post is to go back and make sure the post title is exactly as I wish it to be. Originally I am naming the post by using a keyword rich phrase, but that one may not be an attention grabbing title that will make readers want to know more. In this case, I originally named the post How To Drive Traffic To Your Blog, but then I changed it to what you see above.

Then I go through the two SEO plugins I use – the free one from Yoast called Yoast SEO, and the paid one called Measure My Seo. I want to be sure that the keyword phrase I am optimizing the post for is at its highest possible score. This involves naming my image with this phrase, and using it two or three times within the post.

Using Social Media To Drive Traffic To Your Blog

Then I move on to promoting my post to ensure the greatest amount of traffic and engagement to my blog. This involves visiting several sites, all of which can be accomplished very quickly and easily. The first one is called Just Retweet. This site is fairly self-explanatory and is based on a credit system. They start you out with one hundred credits and you may earn more by retweeting others or by purchasing additional credits. Connect to Just Retweet through your Twitter account.

My next stop is Facebook, where I say something about my post and share the link on my wall. It is estimated that you will have at least ten times as much engagement when you post manually than when it is automated, but don’t give up on the automated posts just yet. I find that having both makes you more visible and credible over time.

Now I go over to LinkedIn, where I share an update with the exact same info I just posted on Facebook. Be sure to click the link to share with ‘the public and Twitter’ so you won’t have to visit Twitter while you’re promoting your post. This saves you time, even if it’s just a few minutes.

My last stop on the social media tour is Pinterest. I like to pin each of my posts so that others can see them. If you use an image for each of your posts, and I highly recommend that you do so for best SEO (search engine optimization) results then you already have one to use on your Pinterest board.

Final Thoughts on How to Drive Traffic to Your Blog

The next step is to email your list with a link to your latest post. This assumes that you are making the effort to build a list, which is the cornerstone of any successful business. If you are serious about learning how to drive traffic to your blog and other sites, be sure to pick up Dennis Becker’s new training, called Honk! Honk! Web Traffic Guide. It’s a complete resource that will help you build your business quickly.

Ready for your Close-Up? Video Marketing for your Business

video-marketingVideo Marketing for Your Business

Driving massive, targeted traffic to your websites has never been easier than it is today with video marketing as a growth strategy. When I got started with my online business in 2006, I was not ready for my close-up. I was one of those people who shied away from the spotlight and preferred to be the one behind the camera instead of being the center of attention. That all changed when I attended an event and one of the speakers wanted a picture of us together. Instead of declining, I silently said ‘Thank you, God, that someone wants a photo with me’ and flashed my brightest smile. I have never looked back since that day.

Video marketing has finally hit its stride in business. It has never been easier to get your photos and videos up online and out to the world. My YouTube channel is very popular, and I describe it as being a ‘lifestyle channel’ in which I share my travels and other life experiences that are available to me as an entrepreneur. You can see for yourself by visiting my Channel, and be sure to subscribe while you’re there to learn more about how I’m using videos to grow my business.

Something new to the scene is called Periscope, and you can download the free App for your iPhone or Android device. Then go to this site to see my most recent scopes. This platform allows you to host a live stream video from anywhere in the world using just your smart phone. I’ve hosted my own videos from the beach in Santa Barbara and joined others in their living rooms, nightclubs, and even riding a surfboard off the coast of Sydney, Australia. The possibilities are endless.

Instagram can also be used for videos, and you can see what I’m doing there by visiting my profile. I’m Connie Ragen Green on Instagram. This site has been particularly instrumental in helping me to show a more personal side of what I do in my life and business on a day to day basis.

YouTube can also be done exclusively from your smart phone. Just remember to turn the phone horizontally while recording for best results. You can then upload the finished video to YouTube and it will be live in minutes. I recommend waiting until you are plugged in and connected to the Internet so you can upload it as an HD (high definition) video for a superior final product.

So, what am I recommending when you are an entrepreneur or small business owner in regards to video?

  • Brainstorm ideas on exactly what you’d like to show your prospects
  • Make a list of the steps you could show in a short video presentation
  • Record a few short videos and then show them to others for feedback
  • Go back and record some new videos that explain your business

Remember that you may show yourself in these videos or be behind the camera just voicing them. Different scenarios will dictate how you do this. Or, create a short PowerPoint or Keynote with some bullet points and then explain them each very clearly. These training videos will add great value and bring clarity of message to those who may wish to do business with you.

For example, a massage therapist may want to create short (fewer than five minutes is best) videos showing the process of massage with a subject. Always get written consent before showing someone in your video. They could also voice a video where they show their office or work space and take a short tour, explaining in great detail what each piece of equipment is used for during massage. Finally, they could create a short slide presentation that gives the history of this type of healing practice, describes how the process works, and explains what a new client should expect if they should decide to work with a massage therapist for a period of time.

Allowing your prospects, and even your current clients to view your videos about what you do and have to offer will go a long way in getting the word out to the right people about your unique approach to your field and industry. Even though there are several learning modalities that resonate with people, visual continues to be the medium that the overwhelming majority of people will relate to most readily. How are you building your business with video marketing?

Facebook Groups for Business

facebook-groups-for-businessFacebook Groups for Business

Are you leveraging the power of Facebook groups for business? If you’re not yet familiar with them, here is what Facebook has to say about groups…

“Facebook Groups make it easy to connect with specific sets of people, like family, teammates or coworkers. Groups are dedicated spaces where you can share updates, photos or documents and message other group members. You can also select one of three privacy options for each group you create.”

When you’re a member of a Facebook group, you get notifications when someone posts a new message in the group. This happens for anyone in the group when you post something as well.

For example, let’s say you own a flower shop business. You can join groups related to your floral business on Facebook. Then every day you will get notifications in your newsfeed from those active floral groups you follow.

Keep in mind that you can only join groups using your personal Facebook profile rather than your business page. One way to show that you are a business is to have a link to your business Facebook page on your personal page. This make it more like traditional marketing. The only difference is you are using business page links instead of exchanging traditional business cards.

To find Facebook’s suggestions, look in your left sidebar and click Groups > Find New Groups. You can choose from local groups, groups that your friends are part of, new groups and groups you’re already a member of.

suggessted facebook groups

 

 

 

Dennis Becker runs an excellent group on Facebook that I have been a part of since the very beginning. It’s called the IM Inside Track and I’d love for you to join as my guest. Introduce yourself and tell us a little about what you’re working on in your online business. Now you might be tempted to simply post a blurb about yourself with a link to your business several times a week, but this isn’t a good idea. For one thing, many groups, including ours, discourage blatant selling. The goal of joining Facebook groups is to network and build your relationships to grow your business over time.

I’ve prepared a list of eight ways to take advantage of Facebook groups and make them your secret weapon for networking. I hope these tips are helpful to you.

  1. Share good stuff. Just like any social media site, it’s a social place. That makes it a great place to share helpful, and relevant, stuff. Share funny advice or articles you’ve come across that others in the group would enjoy. Share discounts on productivity apps, industry events and services or products that are widely used in your industry when you come across them. This raises your visibility and shows others that you are keeping on top of certain topics.
  2. Give support. Build your credibility by supporting others. Provide helpful answers and advice. Support other group members if they are having problems with something. If you don’t know the answer to a problem, point them to someone who does.
  3. Get more leads with kindness. Being supportive and helpful draws people to you. Keep your responses and posts within the group upbeat and positive.
  4. Don’t overly self-promote. How annoying is it when you visit a group and all the members are promoting their stuff? These aren’t helpful posts. To network and really grow your business, you should be helpful and giving away your best tips.
  5. Build quality relationships. In any business, building relationships keeps customers and clients involved and coming back to your brand. One way to build good customer relationships is to be involved in what is going on in the groups you participate in.
  6. Attend events. Many groups will hold events like webinars or meetups. These are excellent ways to network and get to know the members of the group. You want to be where these people are gathering. Both Dennis and I host live events and this is where you can connect in person with the people from the Facebook group.
  7. Participate. It’s one thing to join a bunch of groups in your niche. But what good will it do you if no one knows you’re there? You need to participate to become visible. By being visible, you become known. Even if you are extremely busy, mark it on your calendar to stop in at least once a week with a helpful comment or status update.
  8. Ask group members to test a new product or service. You could offer a discount or freebie to a certain number of members. This works well in almost any niche. Invite people from the group to test a new dish you’ve created, a service you are offering or a product you are creating. And don’t forget to ask for feedback.

As you already know, using Facebook is an easy way to build relationships with others. The secret to building relationships and networking with other like-minded people who are interested in what you do and offer, is to belong to and participate in Facebook groups.

Valuable Tip: Connect your business page to your personal profile. Since you can only join Facebook Groups using your personal profile, you need to have your business information easy to find on your profile. This is easy to do; just add your Facebook page to the list of places you worked.

Social Media Marketing to Grow Your Business

Social Media MarketingSocial media marketing to grow your business just makes sense. I’ve been on the most influential social sites for seven or eight years now and continue to use them for my business in a variety of ways. Let’s have a discussion of the sites I feel are the most important during 2015 and how they will help you to accelerate your success.

The ‘Big Three’ of social media continue to be LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. Additionally, YouTube is crucial to your business success, and this year I have added Google Plus, Pinterest, and Instagram to my list of ‘must have’ sites for your online presence. Let’s take a look at how each one of these sites can help you.

Facebook can be time consuming and trivial if you are there to connect with friends and family. Instead, I recommend creating a Facebook ‘page’ using the name of your business or the name of your city and industry. For example, if you visit https://www.facebook.com/SantaClaritaDentist you will see a page for a dentist in the Santa Clarita area. This is an excellent way to connect with existing and new clients and customers on a regular basis.

LinkedIn was more of a corporate site in years past, but now the social aspect of it has taken precedence. Set up your profile and then allow it to search through your email contacts to see who else you know that is already there. Then start reaching out to people in a systematic way to build your connections. I’ve done this over the past two years and now have a network of more than twenty million people around the world! The next step is to set up a profile for your business. They have a step by step way to do this quickly.

Twitter is much more than just the one hundred forty characters you can ‘tweet’ out at any time. Use it to send messages about your business throughout the day. There are sites you can use to do this for you so that you hit several time zones across the country or around the world. You can now also add photos to your tweets, so use this feature to show what you are doing in your business. For example, the dentist could tweet about the importance of brushing and flossing, and start a discussion about how often people should come in for a routine checkup and cleaning. Once you get the conversation started people will take notice.

Pinterest is also all about pictures, photos, and images. Set up a business profile there and add some photos of yourself, your business, and what you do to serve your clients and customers. This site uses something called ‘boards’ that are intended to share details on a specific topic. Using the dentist as an example, one board could talk about cosmetic dentistry and show some examples of people who have had work done. Another could be about the office itself and show photos of the dentist and all of the support staff. Search for the keywords of your business to see who else is using this site to get the word out about their business and connect with them.

Google Plus requires you to sign up through a free Gmail account. Then you can update regularly with the happenings of your business. Use it to announce anything that customers and clients would be interested in knowing about. Again, updates with images are always more interesting. Also, connect with others there using your email contacts.

YouTube is also an excellent way to get the word out about your business. See what the dentist has done at http://YouTube.com/SantaClaritaDentist. The idea here is to tell the story of your business through short (under five minutes is best) videos. You can easily create these with your smart phone and then upload them to YouTube on your phone as well.

You can see that social media is here to stay, so have some fun with it and let the world know who you are and what your business has to offer. Make sure visitors have a way to follow up, such as including your phone number, blog, or website address. The best part of this, in my opinion, is that social media is free. There are paid advertising options available, but they are optional and too complicated to discuss here.

Here are the links to my social media pages – let’s connect!

How To Profit From Your Writing

How to Profit From Your WritingHow To Profit From Your Writing

I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but it wasn’t until I actually wrote that I had even a remote chance of being a real writer. The next step was in learning how to profit from your writing, and here are just a few ideas on how you can accomplish this goal. Spoiler Alert: It’s easier than you ever imagined to earn money as a writer.

Here’s a unique opportunity that allows you to help people tell their story. Many people want to publish their own biography or a memoir, but don’t have the writing skills to put it together. In fact, many famous biographies were not written by their authors, but instead were ghostwritten. That’s where your services can come in. And in some cases, you might even get credit as a co-author.

Now you may want to do this for passive income as well. Instead of doing all the hard work of putting together a memoir or biography, teach people how to write their own, so they can do it themselves. You can create an information product about the process that you can sell repeatedly online. Or once you have achieved success on your own in this area, you can teach other aspiring memoir writers to break into the market.This is the ‘each one, teach one’ philosophy that I simply love.

Book proposals also offer you an excellent opportunity to profit from your writing. Writers who want their books to be published by a more traditional, (rather than self-publishing) publishing company will need a book proposal. This proposal sells the idea of why the book should be published and includes an overview of the book, its market, and competition.

A book proposal is a specialized type of writing that needs to be detailed and persuasive. Proposals can be used for both works of fiction and nonfiction, so there are a variety of types of clients you can work with over time.

Be sure to focus on results to make a name for yourself. While not all of your clients will get book deals because of the book proposals you prepare for them to send out to publishers, the success rate you do achieve will be critical in growing your opportunities in the future. Always follow up with your clients to find out how things went and then use those success stories as case studies to showcase your expertise.

Another form of writing for hire is copywriting, or web sales copy. Copywriting is the art of writing material that helps convert readers into customers. This can encompass everything from email messages to advertisements to online sales pages. Any marketing material often entails some level of copywriting. You can do things like slogan writing, brochures, ad copy, sales letters, product descriptions and more. Copywriters are in high demand and once you have a proven track record, you’ll have clients knocking on your door.

Make sure to track your results, in terms of sales and conversion, from the very beginning. Writing web sales copy is a results driven business and your prospective clients will want to know you can get them more leads and customers. Keep a record of specific conversion rates and help your clients improve those rates as part of a value-added service.

Published authors and online entrepreneurs Alice Seba and Ron Douglas, founders of the Writer Help Wanted Project, have an excellent program that takes you step by step through the process of learning how to profit from your writing. I would encourage you to get involved with this program, as I and so many others have done.

Disruptive Innovation for Your Business: Online Marketing Tips Podcast

Disruptive Innovation for Your Online Business : Online Marketing Tips Podcast

Online Marketing Tips Podcast

The focus and intent of this podcast training call was ‘Disruptive Innovation for Your Business‘ for online entrepreneurs. What I mean by this is that we must create something new if we are to stand out and succeed in our businesses. The definition of disruptive innovation is ‘An innovation that helps create a new market and value network, and eventually disrupts an existing market and value network (over a few years or decades), displacing an earlier technology’.

During this call I discuss my thoughts and experiences on the current state of affairs in the Internet marketing world, and why we must take a stand if this world is going to survive. I also ask listeners to examine their own niche to see what is needed and how they can provide the solution to the problems of those in that niche in order to disrupt the status quo and become innovative entrepreneurs.

Then we move on to discussing the value and importance of risk taking on a daily basis, and of having curiosity when it comes to pursuing our dreams and goals. I share my own vision for how to solve the problems of those interested in online marketing and the new program I will be rolling out in the early fall of 2015. It will consist of a series of modules rolled out in an orderly manner; Moderators who have achieved a level of success in a specific area; and an interactive community that would support the efforts of the members. The idea would be to have everyone blogging regularly, podcasting, and writing books on their topic.

It is my sincere believe that it is next to impossible to create a profitable online business by using only free and very low cost information, and that we must be willing to invest in ourselves with courses and trainings and a Mentor in order to achieve the results we are looking for as an entrepreneur. I take a close look at both the ‘Idealistic’ and ‘Realistic’ approaches and how they both come in to play when starting your business online.

I would love to connect further with you. Are you already on my list and receiving my daily updates?
