Internet Marketing With Connie Ragen Green

Connie Green is a natural born teacher.  She has a heart for helping others.  I found her book, Huge Profits With A Tiny List: 50 Ways To Use Relationship Marketing To Increase Your Bottom Line, full of useful information and inspiration.  Ms. Green left her job as an elementary school teacher in 2005 and has built a very successful Internet business.  I really enjoyed reading about her early experiences as an Internet marketer.  She explained that the first year was difficult and she didn't make very much money.  She invested in workshops, classes, seminars and mentoring programs to sharpen her skills.  She worked VERY hard at making her business a success.  She is now reaping the rewards of this hard work and reaching out to help others.
Huge Profits With A Tiny List provides 50 different strategies to improve your online business with an email list of prospects.  These are people who have shown an interest in your product and given you permission to market to them via email.  The emphasis is always building relationships, not selling products.  Ms. Green states that in the early days of her business, she would call a customer on the telephone and visit with them after they purchased one of her information products.  This was an excellent way to really get to know her prospects and learn how to better serve them.

Some of the stategies in the book include;
  1. Interviews
  2. Teleseminars
  3. Responding To Emails
  4. Storytelling
  5. Teaching Someone Else's Program
  6. Relate a Current Event To Your Niche
  7. Allow Your Prospects To Ask You Anything
  8. Feature And Recognize Those On Your List
At the end of the book there is a section on how to go about implementing the strategies that were taught in the book.  The author suggests that you choose 5 to 10 strategies to implement in the next 30 days.  The important thing is to work at your own pace but be diligent and determined to take ACTION.
There is a "Resources" section at the end of this book that provides links to many resources that helped Ms. Green build her business.  The author invites readers to contact her via email to let her know that you purchased the book and what you think about it.  I emailed the author and got a prompt reply.  I also received a message from Ms. Green on Twitter.  Connie Green definitely practices what she preaches.  Her business is about building relationships ~ She is the real deal!
I read this book in digital format on my Kindle

Coming Soon: I also read Article Marketing: How to Attract New Prospects, Create Products, and Increase Your Income by Connie Ragen Green. I will be posting my review of this book next week.

I've got a copy of her book and it's highlighted and full of dog-eared pages. Great read for anyone building a business online.

Thank you for the introduction of a new person to "look up" in the future. This post was informative for me to gain awareness of talent and expertise.

I really appreciate all of your comments. I do not have an email list but I am planning on starting one soon. This book gave me all the information that I need to get started building my list.

I actually know Connie personally and she really knows how to give the step-by-step instructions people are looking for. You might also want to check out "Money From Anywhere." Connie is one of the co-authors on that book :)
