Refer back to the main Accelerated List Building Manual for moredetails on each step.If you follow each one of these steps, you will succeed. I’m confident of that.Let’s go...7 steps for creating a business exit strategyTask 1: Create your offerTime: 2-3 hoursYour offer can be anything of value. Traditionally it is a free digital product or a freesubscription to a content packed newsletter. The digital product could be a video, an audioor a free PDF report. Decide which you’d like to create and then create it.Task 2: Create your squeeze pageTime: 2-3 hoursI’ve permitted two to three hours for this activity because I’ve allowed time for you to get adomain name and a webhost. Now you need to create your squeeze page. Your squeezepage should look something like the one at www.acceleratednicheprofits.comOnce you’ve created it, upload it to your web space.Also create your Confirmation and Thank you pages. See “Getting people to confirm their
Day 1email address” on page 5 of the Accelerated List Building manual.Day 2Task 1: Develop your auto-responder sequenceTime: 2 hoursI’ve only given you two hours for this task because we don’t need to upload our entiresequence just now. You can create two weeks’ worth of messages for now and thencontinue to add more as time progresses. Create some top quality articles for yoursubscribers; perhaps have one email pitching a product in the first two weeks. Upload youremails to your autoresponder account. If you haven’t got one then I recommend you gowith Aweber. It’s the only one I’ve tried but I’m happy with it.Task 2: Split testTime: 1-2 hoursGet Google Website Optimizer and learn how to use it. Create an alternate version of yoursqueeze page simply by changing one factor, such as the headline and set this up tocompete against your original page. It’s very easy to do, just follow the instructions inGoogle Website Optimizer.
