Once the traffic comes to your site then use your design to promote the products that you want to self. Of course once someone decides to buy your products, you will need a way to collect the money from your customers. On the Internet you can have many different electronic ways to collect funds for payment. There is PayPal, E bill, merchant accounts, or electronic check. You'll need to set one of these types of collection, but be sure to use one that has good security. Once the customer has purchased and paid for your product you will want to have an auto responder to email a thank you for the purchase, setup shipping, and delivery of the product whether it would be physical products such as CDs a catalog purchased item from apparel, household goods or services. If you've thought up properly and set up in a way that your customer understands and delivers your product you will find that they will come back and buy again. Shipping is very important, fast, one-time, and inexpensive if possible promotes repeat customers. One of the fastest ways of delivering for shipping the product is using sources like UPS, Fed Ex, USPS, or freight companies that have overnight delivery. There is also electronic delivery, or of what is known as Electronic Products downloads.

Anyone that has been successful in business learns that just having a product, and a place to sell it, does not mean that you will make a sale.

In all these different advertisements, the goal is to get potential buyers to the site where they can check it out. The focus of this article is the internet traffic needed to bring buyers to the products and services you have to offer.

List Building

Simply put a list of subscribers to your site. The best way to do that is by doing what the giants in the industry of selling have known since the first store was built. Make an offer the customer can't refuse. Give something away that has value to the buyers you want to attract. Be sure not to be easy though, make sure that there is an action the buyer needs to do in order for them to get the deal. The best way for list building you're site is the squeeze page. After making the pitch for the free product is to require that the customer fill out a form giving you their name and means to contact them for future offers.
