How to Automate Your Internet Business

A friend of mine said this to me once,”You’ve heard that the goal is to work smarter, not harder, right? Well I say the goal is to work LESS!“

Well my friend was an accomplished man and very wise. He saw the Internet for what it actually is … a tool that offers the ability to set up a business that runs almost automatically.

Subsequently as a result of the advice I received from my very successful friend, I’ve worked very hard to automate my business.

It’s been an interesting journey and in this blog post I would like to introduce to you some
simple steps that you can use to automate your internet business starting today!

The truly wonderful thing about having an internet business is that there are tools that can practically automate your whole business 100%, saving you time and money, but the real beauty of this automation process, is that the more you automate the more free time you create for yourself too.

Unfortunately these tools are promoted in a manner as to make us think that just
simply by owning them will help us make the money. This of course is not how it is,
we all know people who’ve had Autoresponder accounts for five years and don’t have
a list at all, or quite simply aren’t making any money from the list that they do have.

Similarly, there are many people who know how to build blogs, and have in fact built many, but still don’t make money from blogging.

But, if you can create a marketing system that creates $1000 a month you can duplicate
that success in as many markets as you want, and not only that, you can extend and expand that $1000 into much more over time.

You see, automating your business so that you can have many small income streams is
the thing that most people should concentrate on more than anything.

So here we go,  sit back as I reveal to you exactly How to Automate Your Internet Business. But please bear in mind that these are not the only ways to automate but they certainly are a good place to start.

Automation Method Number 1. Pay Per Click Marketing.

Despite what others may say, from my experience pay per click still works wonderfully well, and today you have far more options when it comes to pay per click than the mighty Google. You see, thanks to the likes of Facebook and Bing, to name only a couple, Google simply does not have the PPC marketplace to itself anymore.

However I will say this, there are still far too many courses out there teaching strategies that worked well 10 years ago but don’t work today, so you need to be vigilant and do your due diligence on any PPC courses you are considering.

Having said that, too many so called “experts” have written off pay per click completely as something that simply does not work anymore, particularly for affiliate marketing.

The fact is that pay per click still works wonderfully well today, and you have far more options than ever before as previously mentioned above.

The real beauty of pay per click advertising, and why it is so good as an automation tool
is that you can set it and forget it. The key is to create an account with your preferred
provider and establish a fair bid price, which is what you will pay for every visitor they
send you.

Once you have done that, you can tell your pay per click provider how much you will spend and they will keep sending traffic to your site until they reach your budget amount, and you can start with as little as $5 per day.

Now you are getting traffic for a price you choose at the rate you choose. If you want to pay $1 per click you can do that. If you want to pay 10 cents per click you can do that too. Few other methods of marketing online put you in control as much as pay per click does.

Automation Method Number 2. Autoresponders.

If your website or blog or e-commerce store is really good, you will probably find that
around 2% of your visitors arriving at your website for the first time, will buy.

So what about the remaining 98%, how do you make the most of their time on your website? Well, you have to remind them again and again about your products and services in order to remind them to return and buy, and the way to do that is by using an email autoresponder.

Email marketing is still the most powerful form of online advertising, and it can
begin working for you today! How does it work? It’s really quite simple.

Firstly you need a landing page.

Some call it a squeeze page but any page will do actually. Your blog will work perfectly well for this aswell. (more on creating squeeze pages here).

Next you need to send targeted traffic (visitors) to that page and not the sales page.

By the way, this is exactly what I do to promote affiliate products, and you can check this out by clicking here and seeing a perfect squeeze page example of me practicing EXACTLY what I am preaching in this post.

Thirdly,make a list of the top ten reasons why someone should buy from you. Then make each reason into a short email message. This is your basic follow up message sequence. There are lots of other things you could do at this point however, this is a great way to begin from a strong standpoint.

Then you can set up a webform (sometimes called an opt-in form) on your website
(your autoresponder company – like Aweber or GetResponse will show you how to do this)
and invite people to learn more.

Those who do want to learn more will get your ten automated email messages over
time and be prompted to return and hopefully buy.

Automation Method Number 3. Blogging.

Lets face it, search engines are here to stay. Only email is used more often than a search engine by the average person using the Internet. So as an internet business owner you should be aware of search engines and learn how to get the best results from them.

And that my friend means blogging.

When it comes to traffic from search engines there are probably two major factors that
anyone can use to their benefit.

The two big factors when publishing your content online are:

1. Publish only high-quality unique content that will be helpful
and can easily be read by humans.

2. Publish often. Daily if you can, but I would say at least 3 times a week, EVERY week.

If you write articles for humans to read and not necessarily purely for the search
engines to rank you AND publish consistently,  you will do well providing you accept that
it is not an overnight thing.

If you do this the search engines will love you because you are always publishing
new content. And new high-quality content is the lifeblood of the search engines.

They will find you and like you and they will send you free traffic.

Automation Method Number 4. Clickbank Can Automate Your Affiliate Program.

Clickbank is a company through which you can sell your product and have affiliates too.
Selling through Clickbank is easy and fast. Most of the affiliate products I promote
are provided by Clickbank.

Hoever I also sell my own products through Clickbank and have for years. Many times over the years I have used Clickbank, I have been successful as an affiliate and also as a vendor.

For me, the best part of working with Clickbank is how they manage your affiliate program
for you and do all of the work, whilst you collect the money.

  • They provide the form you need to sign up affiliates.
  • They track clicks and sales.
  • Best of all … they pay your affiliates for you.

Want unlimited flows of super targeted traffic free?

If you have a strong affiliate program your affiliates will send you all the traffic you need. The more you work with and reward affiliates the more they will send you the targeted traffic you need for your business.

Automation Method Number 5. Hire Virtual Assistants to Automate Your Customer Service and Support.

I’m pretty sure you’ve heard the term ‘virtual assistant’ by now. A virtual assistant (VA) is
quite simply a person (can be male or female) who works from home, and has a specific skillset and will work for you for a relatively small fee.

In the old days, we had answering services that would answer our phones and take
messages. This was a win-win because your phone was answered by a live person and
the message got through.

Now fast forward to the 21st century and discover the power of virtual assistants.
These well-trained individuals work at home and, thanks to the power of the Internet,
can do almost any task you want.

For example, they can:

  • Answer your phone
  • Reply to emails
  • Do your article marketing
  • Post to your blog
  • Find people for you to interview
  • Find people for you to JV with
  • Run a membership service for you
  • Do some simple Website design

And soooooooo much more, in fact on the internet today there is almost no limit as
to what you can hire a virtual assistant to do.

But bear in mind that obviously you will lose some of the personal touch by using
assistants, but if your goal is to automate your internet business and work less,
it is a highly effective way of doing things and can be very cost effective.

A really great resource for finding good virtual assistants is but there are many websites across the internet where you can hire people for pennies to do almost anything for you.

For example:

Now, should you automate your business to the point where you no longer need to
work every day? Well obviously that’s a personal choice, but the point is you Can!

Only you can decide how much automation is right for you, and how much you want
to interact with your customers and subscribers.

Just remember, that by using these methods you can easily learn how to automate
your internet business, work alone, still make a full time income, and yet still enjoy the benefits of having as much free time as you require to enjoy your life aswell.

All the best

P.S Automating Every Process in Your Business Should be Your Ultimate Aim If You Want Total Freedom. However Not All processes Require The Same Level of Automation.

But The Sales Funnel Process SHOULD be a Priority but Can be a Relative Minefield if You Don’t Know What You Are Doing.
