Hi everyone, I have been lurking around for quite sometime. This past week I have begun to start and take action. My plan is to create an email list to entice people to buy my product (which is a coaching session). So far my plan is to: Create the product Make opt in page for people to give me their emails ^Offer incentive in exchange for their emails Make a payment page Refer people to opt in page directly from Facebook groups to get FREE traffic. Once there is a noticeable conversion from particular Facebook groups, switch to Facebook paid advertising to advertise the opt in page. What has been done: Product/Coaching Session (simply a skillset I have) and the Niche has been chosen Currently in the process of creating a website (for the very first time): using iPage since that was recommended in the "how to create a website" sticky (under white hat seo) considering using optimizepress going to use MarketHero (i have no affiliation with them, I just saw their youtube videos and want to follow their guide as close as possible, I am also too much of a novice to create anything on my own) to create the opt in button for me, and let market hero handle all the email auto responsders Currently have no idea on: how to create a payment page? I am thinking of integrate stripe, but I dont have enough knolwedge on this area yet which incentive should I offer, so far I am thinking of creating a pdf book related to what I am coaching what sort of autoresponders should I use (i believe markethero has some templates, which is why I just want to use their platform) Total expected estimated costs: iPage - $30 for a year with whois cloaking and i believe unlimited domains? MarketHero - free trial for 15 days, but $90 per month thereafter (this is expensive, but i have no experience to handle anything else) Optimizepress - around $100 last itme i checked. but I think i can avoid this by creating the html page on my own? not sure how i would embed markethero's opt-in button into the page though. Paid traffic in the future, but i wont worry about this until I have at least 2 clients Total expected revenue: Charge each client $47/month, aiming to get 80 clients to build full time income This is my first IM project and journey. I will do my best to keep everyone posted. I am using this thread to hold myself accountable to keep taking action and trying. I have funds saved up to execute this project, but my biggest concern and problem is my lack of experience in IM and lack of knowledge. My educational background is a MS in Engineering. I am open to any sort of critique/feedback. Thanks everyone.
