So we know that email is the way to go, but there are a few things you should know before you go out and start asking for people’s emails.

Making “the big switch” = going from a 9 to 5 to being fully self-employed from home.
If you’ve been looking for a simple (manageable) online business model, the best method to ensure you end up with something that allows you to scale up at your own pace is to look for these things:
- Make sure the business model is proven to provide an ROI (return on investment)
- Ensure your business model has a front-end to make sure you break even, and also a back-end to allow you to offer high ticket sales, if it doesn’t, even with a big list, you’ll have trouble growing your business.
- Any good online business model doesn’t leave things up to chance – make sure your business model has a formula for you to calculate just how much traffic you’ll need to reach your sales goals. This is vital because without it you’re just guessing.
While it’s not necessary, some awesome bonus features of a great online business model is that it also takes into account: continuity programs, upsells/downsells and extra income opportunities.
