What You Need to be Doing in Your Online Business From Day 1

By on

Most people start a  business online because they want to make money!

Am I right?!

We live in a world of instant gratification.  If we don’t see results quick…we quit.  Instant gratification will not happen with your online business,  but building your list from day 1 will speed up the process!

Building a blog and Branding yourself is a must, but it can be implemented as you go out there and network and generate leads.

You can start networking today online.  You need to be talking to new people daily to grow your business!  I can show you how to prospect on Facebook HERE!

You can literally use what I show you on any social platform!

Now that we have prospecting out of the way, let’s talk about how to get people on your list!

You need to have some type of autoresponder.  An autoresponder is a  program that automatically generates a set response to all messages sent to a particular e-mail address. I use Aweber.  You can do a 30-day trial for free and it’s only $19 after that.

My favorite way to capture emails is with optin forms.  You give something of value in exchange for their email address.  Just like the one below!

 Name: Email: We respect your email privacyPowered by AWeber Email Marketing 

The reason why this is my favorite is because I can run paid ads to them, or set them up on my blog and everything is automated once set up.  Having systems in place like this is the key to not only financial freedom but time freedom as well!

The other way to get people onto your list is to simply ask them if you can add them to your email list while you are out prospecting.  You can manually put their email into your autoresponder.

If I did what I’m telling you from day 1, I would have a lot more people on my list!  The money truly is in your list.  Every marketer you see online making good money, has an email list.

This might seem a little confusing, especially if you are brand new, but their is a simple way to make this all happen!


Use what has already been created and proven to work.  Use opt-in in forms, free offers, and emails, that were created by successful marketers to help build your list!

I told you it took me over a year to generate my first lead.  Don’t go down that path.  Use the power of leverage!

  1. List building is so important. It is almost a year for me also and I just started building my list and I wished I had started it first. Even when I was out there floundering around with no direction I wish I had known about building a list. So I have lost close to two years 🙁

  2. Yes Somer, list building is very important. The other really important thing is defining your avatar so you know who to try and attract to your list. I made both mistakes in the beginning. PS I love camping, sleeping in tents and everything ourdoors

  4. The moment you’ve been waiting for when your business online had received lots of positive comments. With every reaction of people on your business, it gives you a lot of motivation and all of the inspiring words they’re telling. From the day you’ve start, it will definitely make you remember. That success is just a starting point of every online business that has been progressing since the day you’ve started.
