Watch the video as it details the key aspects of a successful and profitable sales funnel

Remember the last time you purchased something online and then you were presented with another offer, an upsell or a “one-time-offer”?

How did you feel right at that moment?

The answer to that question will determine if you continue to do business with that vendor or feel sorry you even purchased the original product.

Being able to keep you interested, involved and enthusiastic is the secret to your success as an online marketer.

This is EXACTLY what allows you to make money online. 

sales funnelThis Formula Controls Everything – Traffic PLUS Conversions
If you get traffic but no conversions – no sales
If you have a conversion capacity but no traffic – still no sales
No Sales = No Money
Need BOTH parts to be working to have a successful online biz
If you cannot create any customers then have no business!


Role Of Sales Funnel Is To:
Attract Targeted Visitors – people who are interested in what you have to offer
Build List of Leads – to follow up with
Convert Leads to Paying Customers as possible
Convert Customers Into “Repeat Customers” – can purchase multiple products/services from you
Convert Customers into High Ticket/Back End Services

Key Steps of Your Sales Funnel Are:

sales funnel 1. An attractive, highly perceived value free offer
2. A highly relevant Front-End offer
3. Upsells made immediately the front-end offer is accepted but these offers must complement and in fact build on the initial “freebie” offer.
4. Back End Offers that further build on the value provided to customers in the sales funnel.

These funnels are quite simple in their design but are extremely challenging to make them effective.

Requires constant monitoring and tweaking of everything from fonts to images to offers to price points as well as some email marketing expertise

Factors That Will Effect Your Conversion Rates:

Quality of  your traffic – optins are the real measure. Responsiveness is far more important re “conversion potential”

Perceived value of initial “freebie” offer – if this doesn’t work then your list building is dead in the water!

Follow up – make sure your emails always have a focus on entertaining and giving value 

This builds relationships – Know, Like and Trust

Few leads ever become customers – and fewer still move through your entire sales funel.

  1. Thanks for sharing an excellent step by step tutorial peter!

    And your points are extremely well taken! like you said,
    you can generate all the free or paid traffic you want, but if
    you don’t have a good conversion process in place, it really
    doesn’t matter!

    On the other hand, as you also pointed out, yo can be great at the
    conversion process, but without enough highly targeted traffic, it doesn’t matter!

    And that in a nutshell, is why so many newbie online marketers constantly struggle!

    Because they are either not good at one or the other or both!Thanks for sharing
    some awesome information!

    • Hey Mark – great to have you visit again.

      Yes the secret is quite simple yet not that easy to attain.

      Get targetted traffic to your offer or funnel and have a conversion process that maximizes the opportunity to convert this traffic.

      That’s it but to make it happen takes a heck of a lot of effort, work, time and expertise – no wonder new online marketers struggle!

      Thanks again for your great comments Mark – your contributions to my blog are always very much appreciated
      All the best


  2. I think the mistake people make time and time again is to go straight for the kill! What I mean by that is to lay down your main offer straight away and try to extract money. I usually find that I have always been taught to build an audience and then build trust with that audience. Once you nail these key things the rest is a piece of cake.

    I found this post easy to follow and you do emphasise the give them something for free which is a particularly good idea. This is something I will put into practice myself.

    • Hi andy and thanks for your feedback,
      Unfortunsately you are right about many folks online going “for the kill” rather than building a relationship first. That approach may work sometimes but for sure you will never have a lit of buyers who are prepared to purchase from you over and over again. If you really want to success in the long term you need to build a trsuting audience as you said and to do this you must always add value that is of help and interest to that audience.

    • Hi Munir. Many thanks for your supportive comment. Glad you found the training helpful and if you ever need any other info then please just let mew know.

  3. Look, I have been in the online marketing game for a few years now, but I never really thought about some of the things that I have already learned here. That just goes to show you how much there is to learn in this industry. I hope to really learn more from you!

    • Hi Melanie. Delighted you found the training helpful. Conversions is the name of the game but it is not that easy to implement profitably!

  4. Great to meet you! When you are going to learn from an online marketing expert, it is great to really get to know them first. This video is a great way to get to know someone you might never meet in person. I am excited to learn as much as I can soon!

    • Hi So Jones and its great to connect with you as well. Make sure when you learn something you also implement it as soon as you can otherwise nothing will ever change for you.

    • Kim as a very successful online marketer I really appreciate your supportive comments. Means a lot to me. Sales conversions is a widely covered topic but I really wanted to put my own understanding and “take” on this critical part of our marketing.
