Someone asked me the other day, is blogging a waste of time?
Think about it…
Do you really need a blog to make money online?
In fact, if you took everything from me, dropped
me off in the middle of a tropical resort and
challenged me to rebuild my business I would
use just 3 marketing tools:
1. Web hosting & a domain name (I can get those together at Arvixe.com)
2. An Aweber Account (My list is like a magic genie)
3. A squeeze page
No Fancy Facebook page.
No Twitter account.
Just a simple squeeze page with an opt-in box.
THAT is how I would build my entire business.
I’ve been doing a LOT of testing this year.
And I can tell you that 95% of our profits come
directly from email marketing.
And guess where the MAJORITY of those subscribers came from…
a SQUEEZE PAGE!!
That means that about 5% of our subscribers and sales
come from the blog, social media, etc…
That’s like a little fart in study hall compared to
the marketing power of our email list.
Now – don’t get me wrong.
There is NOTHING wrong with social media. It can be
a great platform for engaging with your community.
It’s NOT going to build your business quickly.
If you want to build your business FAST – then keep
it “Old-School”. Cause ‘Old School’ is still ROCKIN!
In fact, most six and 7-figure online businesses are built
on the basics – “squeeze page, follow up emails,
and an offer”
