What would make your online marketing efforts more effective for you? Would it be the ability to read your prospects’ mind and then offer them the special kind of product that they are looking for? I’m sure if you had this ability, selling online would become more incredibly easier for you. I know it would for a lot of people online.
But since you don’t have this ability, it’s time to make educated guesses about what it is that your prospects want. There are many ways to do this online, and it’s very easy to do. Luckily educated guesses aren’t blind guesses… in the fact that you’re just creating hypotheses about what someone wants, instead of doing the proper homework on your behalf.
In today’s lesson, I want to share with you some of the ways that you can make educated guesses about what it is that your prospects want – in terms of the kind of products that they will most likely buy. These tips will make it easy for you to sell more of products online successfully without a lot of time and hassle. Let’s look at tip number 1:
I’m sure when you were little and in elementary school that you took “polls” in some of the activities that you would do. This is a great way to find out what your prospects and customers are looking for, without even asking them directly. Good research can come from polls, especially if a lot of people are involved in it.
You can find out a lot about what kind of product you should create or find when holding polls. I suggest that you put up a special web page for your customers and prospects, that is specifically designed to hold your poll. To generate results quickly, offer something for free that is perceived as valuable to your members.
Making educated guesses this way is a great tactic for getting information from your prospects simply and easily. You can then use this information to find something to offer to your prospects and customers. Here’s another way to find out what your clientele are looking for also.
I like posting on forums. It lets me help others, I get free traffic back to my website, I connect with other online business owners, and I get to do great background research on the kind of product that I should create and go and find. If you’re shy and are unsure about forums, then you should start out small with it.
Believe it or not, the more you post on the forums, the more comfortable you will become, the MORE you will want to do it, and the more credibility you will bring to your name. This is just an excellent way to do homework, and get a lot of other benefits for your website.
These 2 ways to make educated guesses online are very effective. You’ll be able to pinpoint what your prospects want right away, and you’ll be able to find or create a product or service that will help them out. I’m confident that you can have major success using these strategies.
Good luck with marketing your online business effectively today.
