first step to getting your online business started…


People really tend to over complicate the whole “getting started” part of building and online business.

I’m gonna lay down THE process to getting your online business started right away, but for DIRT CHEAP. Like as little as humanly possible. You could probably find enough change in your couch to cover the “costs” of getting your online business started.

Step 1. Register a domain. (ANY Domain really!) because here’s why…you can’t really get webhosting until you have a domain name to host…so what i see happen is people don’t know exactly what they want to market and they think that their first domain has to be the end all be all domain that they use for life.

It doesn’t have to be!  You really just need SOMETHING so you can get going.

get your first domain name from namecheap.com here’s a quick video on why i recommend namecheap

Most good webhosting companies like Hostgator allow you to add UNLIMITED “add on domains”  what that means is you can host as many different domains as you want under your ONE hosting account. this is great because if you are on a really tight budget you can go get one of those super cheap .info domains JUST FOR NOW…just to get started.

then later on down the road lets say you have an idea for another product you can go buy a custom domain just for that.

So how do you come up with a good domain name to ‘just get started with’ I would tell you to try and register your name first. if you can’t get your name try maybe your first name, middle name, last name . com :) or maybe just first name, middle name . com

this will become kind of like your online ‘headquarters’ and you can always add other sites on afterwards (by setting them up as an add on domain.)

step 2. get webhosting.

I recommend you get an account with hostgator.

Watch this video i just made for you. it shows the best package to get when you are first starting out online, and how to get your first month of top rated hosting for only a penny.

Step 3.) Set Domain’s nameservers…

After you have your domain name (you did go and get a domain right!) and you have your webhosting account (you did go and get your webhosting right!) well you should have recieved an email from hostgator by now that includes what are called your “nameserver addresses” or “dns addresses” something to that effect.

they will look something like:

ns569.hostgator.com

ns570.hostgator.com

so what do you do with this info?

You log into your ‘namecheap’ account and you ‘set your domain’s DNS’

here let me show you real quick.

Step 4. Create you online headquarters…your blog.

wow. look how much progress you have made in such a short period of time!

now that you have your domain registered, you have your hosting account and you have ‘pointed your domain to your webhosts dns servers’ you are ready to start rocking and rolling.

what you’ll wanna do now is log into your website’s ‘control pannel’

usually you can get there by going to thedomainyoujustregistered.com/cpanel

leme show you what i mean:

step 5.) YOUR DONE! Log into your new blog and make your first post.

so by now you have a domain, you have hosting. your site is live on the web. you know how to get into your cpanel. and you’ve installed your very first wordpress blog.

Now it’s time to log into that badboy and make your first post…

congrats your first website is up and running!!

Testing Emails Effectively

The big picture, which is missed by many marketers, about email is that apart from being cheap and quick, it gives the ability to find what works and what does not. It is inexpensive and offers more information to the subscriber than direct mail and the turnaround time is decreased from weeks to hours. Yet, very few marketers invest time and efforts to test drive their eNewsletters and emails. Many of them will question whether the effort made is really worth it. If the order button is shifted from the bottom of the page to the top of the page, where it is more visible, the click through rate goes up by fifty percent. With such results, the effort is worth it. With hundreds and millions of dollars involved in email marketing, money cannot be thrown away like that.

The only way to know about offers and topics which work for the audience is by testing. Testing can be carried out on preferences, emotional triggers, reaction towards subject lines, do they like short or long formats, or do they like text or HTML format. Valuable information about the audience can be learned by variable testing.

Basics of the emails can be started with like the simplest portions of the emails can be formatted. Most of the emails aren’t read because of faulty HTML code. Emails should be tested in different types of email applications like Yahoo or Outlook. By doing this a drastic change can be observed in the overall response rate. Testing should be kept in control. Sometimes marketers get so overwhelmed that they test the whole email at once. If two completely different versions of the same email are send out to different groups, there will be no clue to what actually worked and what didn’t. Therefore it is necessary to pick a single element to be tested at a time and then observe the response of the audience to that particular variable before testing another variable.

Timing is also important when sending out emails for testing. When sending multiple test emails, the time of sending them out should be considered. It is to be seen whether the emails can be sent at the same time, same season, etc. This also includes the testing on more than one variable at a time. According to researches, Wednesday is the best day for getting responses. Other statistics say that at least thirty to fifty responses are required to make a good decision. Some percent of these responses can be confusing, but nearly ninety percent of them will be accurate. The list of elements can be further divided into smaller list and the individual list can be concentrated upon.

Testing doesn’t mean just taking the grade. It means that we should get the grades or results and learn from it. If something is wrong in the email, the correction should be sought out. When the email marketing efforts are put to test, the goal of this testing procedure is to test one or more elements or variables, the results must be analyzed and the lesson learned should be put to application. Otherwise, it is a waste of time and money to test. And when the results are ready, the marketer should know how to apply the new found knowledge.

building an email list for FREE?

up until just recently if you asked me…”hey is there a decent free email autoresponder out there?”
I’d say “NO!” but that has all changed…

now there’s List Wire which is run by the one and only: Gary Ambrose.

I know you’re thinking…free autoresponder…what’s the catch…

so here’s the low down on how list wire makes money and what Gary’s plans are for the site.

first off, check out what all you get for FREE with your list wire account:

  • top notch deliverability
  • unlimited list size…
  • unlimited broadcasting
  • unlimited sequencial follow up messages.
  • form builders, and a neat ‘squeeze frame’ form thinggy that lets you build your list without even having a website! (more on this later)
  • link tracking (so you can see how many clicks your emails are sending)
  • open tracking (so you can see how many people are opening your emails)
  • No ads from Gary in your emails or anything like that.

now here’s the ‘limitations’

  • no split test broadcasting (that i could tell)
  • no single opt in (100% double opt in only)
  • no importing…at all. period (so far as i can tell)

Now i’m sure you’re saying “i can live with those limitations…i mean it’s a free autoresponder!” here’s how Gary plans to monetize the site…

Anytime someone joins your listwire list, they are going to be sent a ‘confirmation message’ because this is a 100% double opt in service…once your new subscriber clicks the ‘confimration link’ they are going to be shown an offer from Gary (list wire) and I believe the same will happen when users unsubscribe from your list as well…so these are the only two oppritunity Gary has to make money from this whole free autoresponder service.

During my trip to boise Gary revealed his goal for list wire is to have 10,000 users all adding at least 2 new subscribers to their lists per day…do the math…that would give Gary 20,000 ‘Views’ per day for his offers!

Pretty sweet idea if you ask me.

Anyway. the other cool thing is that in the future Gary’s going to be paying out commish on the sales made through that traffic…I don’t know exactly who’s getting paid or how much so you’ll just have to join list wire and stay tuned as the service develops!

Oh yeah…i was going to tell you about the “squeee frame” thinggy…so check this out..when you are first starting out and you don’t have a domain name, or a webhosting account or anything like that what are you supposed to do to build your list? well list wire has thought of that for you! they have this feature called “squeeze frames” where you specify a page, for example say an article on ezinearticles.com…you type that in and then list wire spits out a link for you to send traffic to. when you visit that link your opt in form will appear ‘over top’ of the article on ezinearticles.

this is really cool especially if you are learning how to drive traffic with free methods…like what Oli Tree Teaches in ‘zero down traffic’ because you can give away cool free content you find around the web..but then you can also bruild your freaking list for free at the same time…

And when you are promoting affiliate offers you can build a list of  prospects at the same time! it’s just so powerful..

Anway for me since i already have an autoresponder service i use primarily…aweber…i won’t be using list wire as my main email service…BUT I had to blog about it becuase i know a lot of my readers would benefit greatly from a FREE autoresponder service…

So go sign up for list wire now… and keep an eye out here on my blog for more cool stuff…

oh and feel free to comment below. let me know what u think!

talk soon,
