In episode 268 of Journey to $100 Million, Erik answers a question asked of him on Twitter by Stuart Crane, the CEO of Voice Metrics. His question was: “What makes an effective sales funnel and landing page?”
Erik stresses that you have to keep in mind that you must bring value to people, even if you’re designing an online system.
There are four steps to funnels.
On the landing page, keep it super simple. A landing page is a web page without a header, footer, or anything fancy and the sales copy needs to be focused. Focus just on the offer and have a clear call to action. There should be exactly one thing for the visitor to do on the landing page.
When they convert – when they “buy” what you’re pitching – collect their name, email address, and maybe their phone number with the promise of providing more value if they sign up for your newsletter. Once they’re in your email or text messaging marketing system, continue to provide value with white papers, stats, and other value bombs, and try to convert them into a paying customer.
