Email List Building And Other Evergreen Business Goals for 2017

email list building goals

There’s a saying by Marie Forleo I really like that goes: “Success doesn’t come from what you do occasionally. It comes from what you do consistently.”

It’s a saying that resonates well with the beginning of a new year for your online business. Because not only are there new goals of growth to be met for this year (adding a new team member? rolling out a new product?), but there are also those age-old, evergreen goals that have to be maintained…consistently.

And by evergreen, I mean things like email list building goals, better automation for your email sequences, and making sure you’re using the right tech tools. All tasks that require consistent maintenance and attention…even when they’ve been working well for you!

In other words, January is a time to focus on the fundamentals of online business growth. Click To Continue

Start Building Recurring Income For Your Blog With A Membership Site

start building recurring income

Working for yourself is probably one of the most liberating feelings out there… but it also comes with a large degree of stress.

Each paycheck is in your own hands, which can lead to working MORE hours than you would normally at an office. And sadly, the increase in hours doesn’t always come with an increased paycheck.

Of course, that’s why real solutions for building the elusive “recurring income” are in such high demand.

And the best thing for bloggers, is discovering that there’s a form of recurring income that can be easily set into motion with an everyday email marketing system and an integrated WordPress plugin… even if the only resource you have is your current email list of blog subscribers.

A glance at any of the latest marketing statistics reveal that the benefits of building an email list are definitely going to continue into 2017.

Shopping Cart Abandonment Solutions: One Simple Tip To Make More Sales

shopping cart abandonment solutions

Have you ever shopped at a cute little boutique, leisurely browsing and examining the unique products…only to leave without buying anything?

I have, and I’ll admit: I always feel a teensy bit guilty as I leave.

Because I know that those shop owners depend on each and every customer in order to keep their doors open.

But this scenario isn’t just a bummer for the mom and pop shop owners at the end of Main Street…it’s something that happens to online business owners, as well.

Depending on who you talk to, the exact number changes a little bit…but on average, 3 out of 4 people who actively “shop” on your website will never actually make a purchase.

They’ll just look around a little, maybe add an item or two to the shopping cart, and then leave it all at the checkout counter…sad.

When you’re counting on your online sales to make a living, finding any viable shopping cart abandonment solutions to turn those window shoppers into real customers becomes a high priority on your list. Click To Continue

How to Handle Competitors in Business & Come Out Ahead

how to handle competitors in business

In the many years now that I’ve spent running a business, I’ve learned how to handle competitors in business without letting ’em get to you.

It’s an important thing to master as an entrepreneur, because no matter what niche you’re in, you’ll never really find yourself without competition.

So let’s think about what competition is for a minute…

For me, it brings up images of the Olympics, arm wrestling, and choosing between 2 giant soft drink companies (huh?).

But you might have a totally different vision that comes to mind when you think of that word. And that’s ok.

The important thing is what you do when you’re confronted with it…especially when your livelihood is at stake. Click To Continue

Is PopupAlly A Good LeadPages Alternative WordPress Plugin… Or Do You Need Both?

Feeling overwhelmed by optin options for your landing pages?

I hear you.

There’s a lot of noise and almost too many choices in terms of landing page solutions… and of course, a lot of them like to claim to be the best option out there.

Because of this, we’ve had a lot of great conversations with other entrepreneurs about what it means to craft a landing page…and what type of tool you might want to look at to make your job easier.

One conversation in particular stands out pretty clear, when one of our clients shared that “I’m having a hard time understanding the difference between PopupAlly and LeadPages…Should you use both, or is just one enough?

And that’s a great question.

Because while PopupAlly Pro gives you the power to create opt-in forms (in addition to popups) anywhere on your site, LeadPages is a great one-stop-shop when it comes to easily building landing pages that convert.

So, is it a good idea to use PopupAlly Pro as a LeadPages alternative WordPress plugin… or should you use both?
