You’ve heard the dream.
Click here to have an 100% autopilot online business, a business that’s running for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all on autopilot with no work from you. You don’t have to touch it. It sounds like an amazing lifestyle, and it would be.
If it were true.
Let’s get down to the details of your business running on autopilot and actually, the truth is that you can never really have a 100% automated online business. Now, before I get labeled the dream-crusher, I want to let you know that it is possible to have a mostly autopilot business, but not really something that’s 100%. Autopilot is term marketers use to appeal to your lazy sise and buy their products. Just set it and forget it? No possible unless you want your business to crash like your plane would with that atitude.
I love this term auto-pilot. It comes from flying planes obviously and is meant to suggest the computer does all the flying. I used to fly jets and and I can assure you that it doesn’t work that way. When the autopilot is engaged, the computer can maintain variables like altitude or heading. But you must monitor the autopilot. Double check that is tracking correctly. The same is true with your business. You can set up automated tools to run certain aspects of your business. But you can’t just flip the switch and never do any work.
Now this is the reason why you can never have a fully automated, 100% autopilot business. The number one reason is that times change. People change, their tastes change, product standards change, technology changes. So something that’s hot now that’s running for you really well and that’s making money for you day in and day out, it’s not going to change as the times change. In a few years, things are going to be different and something that’s hot right now is not going to be hot later and is not going to convert very well for you later.
So while you can count on your product doing really well for you for anywhere from a few months up to a few years, I wouldn’t count on it lasting much longer than that just because times change. And the number two reason is that autopilot businesses still need checking and maintenance. Chances are, if you have something working really well for you, you’re not going to be satisfied with it running just on autopilot making the same money day in and day out, and the chances are also that if you have it making a consistent amount of money, it’s going to eventually as the times change go lower and lower. And so, you have to keep checking it every now and then to make sure that it’s going well for you and you’re going to be wanting to test and track it and see what’s working for you well, why it’s working for you well and improving the process so that you can continue to make even more money.
Now here’s how your business can be put on autopilot, and the idea is automated marketing tools. When I talk about automatedt marketing tools, I’m talking about an automated traffic, sales and conversion tools. Yes those can be set up to run on autopilot with the right knowledge. The idea is that when you actually get all these set up they can do most of the work for you and all you need to do is continue to improve the process for it to make more money for you.
But if you want to go on vacation for however long, it’s going to be running for you and so it’s not going to be very much a big deal. But it does require continued maintenance, it does require you running it like a business and running it like a growing business. If you want to actually treat this like a business and not just an income opportunity, because you know what, income opportunities come and go. They last for only so long and then you’re going to have to find the next opportunity. So if you want to grow and mostly automated online business, especially an information or online store, which is what I specialize in teaching in, then you’re in the right place.
Okay, an autopilot traffic tool. What is this? For example, this could be something like adwords, Google Adwords, or any other type of pay-per-click marketing tool where all you do is you set it in I want to bid on these buyer keywords, I want to pay this much for it, and it will continue day in and day out to be bidding for you on this and serving ads based on your keywords. Another type of autopilot traffic tool that’s free is article marketing. You can also do the video marketing. The idea here is to set up streams of traffic that continue, whether it’s a trickle or whether it’s a stream every day, some turn into big streams of traffic some are just small streams, but you continue to set up more and more and they’ll continue to work for you on autopilot while you’re building other parts of your business and finding ways to get more and more traffic into your websites.
Okay, and the second part of the equation is an autopilot sales or marketing tool, and this boils down to one thing: An autoresponder, and email marketing service, whatever you want to call it. Use AWeber, that’s my favorite. But basically, this allows you to send your subscribers, send your readers, offers and education to build a relationship with your list on a preset basis. You can schedule it to send this many days after the next one and the next one and the next one. It can continue sending out more offers to your customers just on a preset basis. You don’t have to touch it. You just let it run and people can continue to learn education. So it’s a value for them as they’re getting continued education and it’s a value for you that you can work on building other parts of your business.
All right, and lastly you need the autopilot conversion tool. What is this? This is the website. This is the sales processor. This is where you’re going to take all your orders for you 24 hours a day. Basically once you have the traffic coming in, you’ve converted them, they’ve gone into your email autoresponder, you’re continuing to market to them through email. You’re going to send them to your website. So you’re going to send them to whatever types of products that you have. This is where there’s a sales page and it has an order button. None of this is anything that you really have to deal with. You don’t have to email them their order number every time that someone orders a new product. All you have to do is just have everything set up, everything should be taken care of for you on autopilot, and so you can be waking up the next morning to new sales in your email. You’ll get a new payment notification.
And so, it’s that simple. I know it sounds easy, but I’m going to tell you the truth. You’re never going to have this until you actually set it up. Okay? How about that for thought, right? You’re never going to have this unless you take action and you make this happen. It sounds so easy in theory that people go, oh well I’ll just set that up on Saturday. But you know what? It takes several days, but if you’re going to set up something that turns out to be an autopilot business where you have several products running for you, you’re building your credibility online, all those types of things, you’re going to have to treat it as a business. It’s not something that is so easy to do, otherwise everyone would have done it, and in turn nobody would be rich because everyone can do it, right?
So since you know this, you need to apply this now. It’s very easy to learn, it’s very easy to understand. The hard thing, it’s a challenge to actually get yourself to do it. Not because it’s hard to do, but because we all have these mental blocks that keep us from taking action.
What would make my day more than anything else is to see you guys actually take action and do something. Please email me. If you have done something, email me. I’ll feature you on my blog, I’ll talk about you, because you’re the people that should be rewarded. You’re people who are taking action and making things happen. So please email me, let me know. Let me know your comments. Let me know what types of action you’re taking. I don’t want you to look at yourself a year from now, look back and go, man, I should have just taken action. Because you know what? Times are going to change, technology is going to change. This is the updated formula for what’s working today.
So take action today. Don’t let the opportunity pass you by. This is the time. Get an autopilot business going and, yes, it does take work initially until you have momentum. It doesn’t take a lot of time. Make it happen. Let’s do it.
