#1 Finding a need and filling it

One of the biggest mistakes made by most new entrepreneurs, both starting an online or offline business, is coming up with a product idea and then trying to find a market for it. It would almost always need to be the other way round.

If you know, there’s something in demand, but not being supplied adequately in the market, you can consider developing a product or service around it. However, if you come up with the product or the service first, and then look for the perfect target market, you may end up disappointed when you don’t find enough demand or if there’s way too much competition.

Visiting online forums, doing keyword research, checking out your potential competitor’s sites and finding out what they have done are sure to give you a lot of ideas.

  • An interesting title that would grab the attention of the visitors
  • Telling them how your product can solve their problem
  • Backing it by some feedback or reviews of the past customers
  • Its benefits and what it has in store for them
  • A call-to-action, or asking them to buy your product
#3 The website

An excellent sales copy would probably convert well only if the website it’s posted to is equally convincing. It needs to be ensured that the website is easy to navigate, and loads quickly.

You can also choose to have an opt-in to collect the visitors’ emails if your niche allows.

# 4 Driving traffic

The links obtained from those blogs may even help you rank the site well for the keywords you are targeting, hence driving organic traffic too.
