Sales Funnel

A sales funnel is basically a system that generates leads, and in the process, those leads receive offers so they can make purchases.
The more leads a funnel generates, the more money the list owner makes. The funnel is comprised of several key elements called tools.

Tools needed to build a sales funnel

Domain name for the website.
Hosting
Lead capture page
Autoresponder
Follow up email series

The lead capture page may look simple but it is powerful when it comes to making money online. There are a few things that take place behind the scenes in order to create it. The page needs to be well written in order to capture the curiosity on its visitors compelling them to sign up. The lead capture page is tied up to the autoresponder which delivers follow up emails to the subscribers at given intervals.

Whether you know it or not, you have been part of a marketing funnel. Do you receive emails periodically from someone who owns a business? If you made a purchase from eBay or any other company, chances are that you have received offers from them via email. That's a sales funnel working at its best.

Visitors get to a lead capture page when they perform a search on search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing, Etc. When visitors see the page, they read the offer and sign up by entering their name, email address and/or phone number on the lead capture form. After they signup, they receive emails periodically from that vendor.

When the visitors fill out the form, they become leads which means that if you are the owner, you can now market to the customer outside of your website.

Having your own funnel is a great way to have your leads engaged, sell them stuff, and have them visit your website.

You only need to purchase the domain name, hosting, and the autoresponder to build your funnel. You must purchase them if you want to have a successful one! This will paint a good image about your business to begin with. If you use free tools which not recommended, you will get nowhere.

Find a good domain name. The shorter the better and make it easy to remember. This way, it will be easier for people to find you.

I could have used a different website for my funnel but, I preferred to use 1-1Hits.com because it's Alexa traffic rankings are below 150K. This means, my brand will continue to be exposed and I did not want to miss out on this.

If you are not willing to spend money on the tools above, it means you are not serious enough about your business. Remember. You must invest some money in your business.
