How can you automate elements of your online business?
Many entrepreneurs have different opinions whether you should automate your online business. On the one hand it works great, but on the other, it can get in the way of engagement.
However, if you want to build your passive income stream you’re going to need to implement automation. If you do it right, all you have to do is get people on your list, assuming they were well targeted, and then you can start earning.
First, let’s define passive revenue. This is income that you earn today (and tomorrow) through the efforts you put in yesterday and today. No one denies that earning passive income is work up front and not at all passive. But, if you build your systems correctly, you’ll be able to take breaks and do less work while your income continues to rise on autopilot.
Your competitors may have multiple websites and blogs, each one showcasing a product or service. The same can’t be said about podcasts. Although having a website and a blog is important, a podcast for your business will provide a unique marketing approach that engages people much more than text based content ever can.
Quite simply, a podcast is a type of RSS feed (or the delivery system used) that listeners can subscribe to. But instead of using text or video as content, it uses audio. It’s like having your own radio show, but to a targeted audience who are genuinely interested in what you have to say.
You can use your podcast to build engagement and authority with your target market, grow your email list and sell your products and services.
Every online business owner wants to get more customers. And to get more customers you have to get people to know, like and trust you. You have to demonstrate to your prospective customers that you are a genuine person who understands the wants and desires of your audience and can help them get those wants and desires.
But newcomers to the online business worry about positioning themselves as an authority or leader in their chosen niche. To build you online business you don’t have to be an expert. You just need to know a little more than your prospective customer and know how to help find the product or service that they are looking for. Here are 7 ways you can build your online business, get people to know, like and trust you and ultimately get more customers.
