Best Strategy for Audience Building, Part II

Silver Bullion Coins, Maple Leaf

— continued from Part I

To get you started, have a look at the brief resources list below. It consists of additional information you may want to familiarize yourself with for an easier and faster start:

What you need is only a handful of tools or things along with at least $20 you are willing to spend in risk capital to get you going and to see whether or not you are moving in the right direction (or have any chance of getting there at all). You can set aside more than $20 if you want or can afford — but you don’t have to.

You’ll need…

You need some place to upload a Landing Page to — that’s not an entire website, just a landing page (or several, if you want to run several projects at the same time). Now, this could be on your existing web server (if you have one) or using some web space you have access to and can use. (It can be a free one, it can be a paid-for virtual hosting space, it only needs to be able to host your landing pages along with their input fields — this is usually included with any solution that’s able to host a CMS (Content Management System) like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or similar and, if you need to set a new and paid one up, can be had for as little as $5 a month. (The example linked here provides full Root access to your server as well as tons of features and functionality that’s very nice to have but not actually essential at this point. Yet it’s one of the lowest-cost offers I know of, so why not go for it instead of a lesser one that costs you more…?)

You’ll also need…

What you also need is the ability to set a Landing Page up. There are simple tools for that as well, the most popular and easy-to-use ones being Plugins for WordPress, but you can also use any other CMS that allows for extra functinality or for the addition of modules or similar.) For WordPress, the Landing Page Builder plugin is a great solution (the basic version will do, although there’s also a Pro version available as so often — but you do not really need that, especially not if you’re just getting started or want to try this out).

Next you’ll need…

Next, you need an Advertiser or Business account with Facebook. It’s free. Of course it’s free, why wouldn’t it if Facebook wants to do Business, and the $20 or more mentioned earlier are to pay for the actual running cost of ads you need to get your campaigns and money-making efforts going. So it only costs you money when you start using it, which you will later on in the course of this project.) Go to http://ads.facebook.com/ to set one up, if you haven’t one already.

Equipped with the above things or tools, you are ready to get started. Continue reading and go to Part III in order to learn about the procedures and methods to use for generating income from these simple tools.
