One of the simplest concept in business is the easier you make it for your customer to pay you money the more likely they are going to do so. And to make this concept in reality we have introduced the rebill feature and the free form invoice, so that all the CloudNet360 merchant can sell more..faster!
In this video, I demonstrate multiple easy way to rebill or create free form invoice for your customers so that they can pay you with a click of a button.
Every retailer, every business owner works with the same goal of making more sales to ensure a big profit. Achieving this goal is easier said than done and whoever has been in the business would agree on this. You have a selling strategy, but that might not work, you make the offer, but how do you know that the buyers would fall for it? It is almost like fishing, the bait goes into the water, but there is no guarantee that the fish will take it.
A good fisherman follows some simple fishing strategies which helps him land the fishes straight into his boat. You too need to strategise well to be able to tempt your customers, a little tweaking of your sales strategy could help you get the desired profit.
• Location & Targeting– This is perhaps the most crucial factor in your sales strategy. While fishing if you target the entire lake, you would end up wasting your time and your baits, you need to target those areas where the fishes are supposed to lurk around and place your baits there. Likewise, when you’re targeting keywords online, focus on the keywords that target the customers of your most direct competitors. For example, if you’re selling Nikon cameras, then a few effective keyword phrases would be “Canon alternative”, “Canon price” or “Canon warranty”. Let Canon cast the “wide net” for people seeking a digital camera, let Canon burn through hordes of advertising cash, and then you can swoop in at the last minute to highjack the sale.
• Presentation– You need to present the offer in a tempting way to not only grab their attention but to make them buy your product. If you make an offer for a limited period of time they won’t be able to ignore it, especially when the offer is available for a few days only. They will definitely make a move. There’s a reason why smart retailers use holidays like July 4th, Memorial Day, Labor Day, etc., to promote their products. Holidays aren’t the only option; you can create any reason you choose, but it’s always important to have a reason, because it’s proven that people are more likely to accept your offer when there’s a reason for the offer.
• The “Take Away”– When you make an offer, you need to stress on the expiration of the offer so that the customers feel that they are going to lose the opportunity and in the rush they end up buying your product. The fear of loss is often more powerful than the desire for gain so make sure your customers know when they are about to lose out on a special deal.
Selling more could be challenging, but it is not an impossible feat to achieve, you just need to make sure that you are using the right strategies.
Everyone knows what the acronym KISS means – Keep it simple stupid.
There’s no way you could beat simplicity, especially in business. Yes, there have been complex business models that achieved great success, but most successful businesses have a simple foundation. The simple models might not sound trendy, but they do their job and end up delivering the results.
The Google home page is literally a master’s class example of how a simple function, simple home page, produced amazing results.
It’s why you so often hear CEOs of multinational companies explain why they’re selling all the companies they recently bought and getting back to basics… describing their “new” strategy as, “getting back to basic blocking & tackling”. Because when their business was “simple” they were successful.
When they implemented their “new” systems to manage the multitude of acquisitions, suddenly their business was no longer “simple” and no longer profitable. The trouble is that “simple” always seems so boring while “new “ is always so exciting.
There are marketing experts who promise you a magic sales funnel delivering spectacular results, but there is always a “catch” with this mystical potion. More often than not, you veer away from “simple” and straight into the oncoming headlights of “complicated”.
Now you need the help of the experts to save you from the inevitable crash and you become dependent upon them to be able to run basic functions of your business.
So, what’s the point of having it?
For example, if I go to a trade show and collect leads, I know what I’m going to do as a soon as I get back to the office:
• Email them a “thank you” message to remind them who I am and what I can do for them.
• Follow this email with a phone call from me.
• Send another email
• Mail a direct mail piece
• Continue my correspondence until they either tells me to stop of they take the next action I’m trying to achieve.
Suddenly I have a “simple” sales funnel that just automated my entire follow up process of things I used to do manually.
It’s simple, it works really well and I didn’t need a coach or consultant to figure it out for me. I have the control in my hands.
Good businesses keep things simple and then just do these simple things consistently. Complicated businesses are never consistent and never really good… and least, not for long.
CloudNet360 makes it “point & click” simple for anyone to emulate their current sales and business activities to easily create an automated sales funnel that does the work for them so they can focus on the sales activities no automation will ever replace.
Here’s another “simple” offer for you. CloudNet360 makes all of our profits from software sales and we throw in the sales funnel consulting for FREE so we can sell you more software.
Just take a test drive to discover how effective our simple step-by-step methods are at improving sales.
It’s so much better and less chaotic to run your entire business operation with one login. It helps you get your work organized and manage all that needs to be done in the sales and marketing segment. CloudNet360 happens to be a system that it offers an “all in one” solution which you cannot find in any other system.
There are plenty of companies that have jumped on the bandwagon claiming to be an “all in one” solution… but all that can be said about those claims is that “imitation is the best form of flattery” and lately it seems we’ve been receiving quite a few compliments from our competitors.
But there’s a real problem.
When we speak of an “all in one” business system, we’re not talking about just managing your website and shopping cart from one system, that’s just covering the basics.
Sure, you can bolt together additional 3rd party pieces to get the same functionality we offer, but who really wants to learn all these extra systems and pay for those … and then maintain the shaky API connections necessary to make them all work?
How about a built in, mobile, responsive, website with your shopping cart plus a CRM to attract new customers and upsell existing customers? But even that’s not good enough because you’re going to want a highly profitable membership site, or multiple sites, so we include an amazingly powerful, yet simple to manage, membership system.
Coaches, consultants and authors will love the automated scheduling and billing system which allows them to focus on helping their clients instead of chasing after clients for payments. Of course, all these customers and business sales are going to require that your internal business operations are running smoothly and that’s where the integrated Project Manager saves the day to keep you organized and always on top your game.
We’ve never run our business without these other tools and would never expect you to either. So we also include a powerful affiliate system, if it were a standalone piece of software, it would surely be the #1 affiliate system on the market… plus live chat, a customer support ticket system, suggest a feature, and the all time sales conversion champion – Click to call.
You also need to learn about the full suite of Mobile Apps? Yep, we have you covered there so that you can run your business from anywhere in the world from your hip pocket. But are you feeling worried about how to get this started and implement it into your business?
And this is exactly why every account comes standard with your very own e-Business Advisor that will teach you, help you, guide you, and actually do it for you so you can hit the ground running and take full advantage of this powerful automation suite.
So now that you know about the best, isn’t it time you gave it a test? With no contracts, no hidden fees, and a 30-day trial, you have absolutely zero risk so take it for a test drive today! Still not convinced?
Running a business could be really challenging, especially when you are managing everything on your own. You have to run so many errands everyday that at some point it becomes impossible for you to keep track. But with CloudNet360 CRM you can easily overcome this issue as this system is specifically built for people like you.
In the process of running your business, you create more than one sales path and as your business grows bigger these sales paths also start to grow in number. When you created all these sales paths you definitely did so because you had a reason. Each sales path was created with a definite purpose, but with time as they grew in number, it became difficult for you to remember which one was created with what purpose.
The latest feature added into the CloudNet360 CRM could help you find the perfect solution to this problem. Let’s find out what this is all about.
Now when you visit the crm you will find that there is a new option “ Purpose” added to the sales path section. This allows you to add a purpose to the sales path you create and it acts as a reminder later by helping you recall why that sales path was created.
As far as your existing sales paths are concerned, which have no purpose assigned to them, you could easily manage those too. Just select a sales path and click on the purpose section and check whether it has any purpose, if it does not contain any purpose then go the particular sales path you want and then choose the edit option which allows you to add a new purpose.
Now you can remember the purpose of every sales path you create without having to feel confused. The best part is all you have to do is point and click to perform this function, it is that easy.
With CloudNet360, you will always find an easy way to sell more. Take the free trial offer to give your business the much needed boost.
CloudNet360 always prioritizes the needs of its users, which is why it is one of the most sought after crm system on the market today for the small business owners. The fact that it is built specifically for the small businesses makes all the difference in the way it works.
Besides being a super easy system to operate, it is also the most updated system you will come across. Instead of forcing the users to carry on with dated features, it continues to upgrade the system by adding a fresh bunch of features on a regular basis. This time around the newest feature that made its way to the crm system is Tool Tips.
The reason behind adding this new feature is to shorten the time you spend carrying out your tasks. The crm has the tool tips bar which contains multiple tools, now instead of having to click each one icon to find out what the tool is all about or, looking frantically for the tool you want to use at any given moment you can easily locate it thanks to this new feature and that too without wasting time.
You just have to get to the tool tips section and you can move your mouse over it and you can find out what are the functions of the icons, or, you could go to the option shown above the section ”ShowTool Tips” and click it to expose all the tool tips at the same time. Now you could easily choose the tool you want to use at that moment and click on it to open it and then you could carry on with your task without wasting a moment.
It is super easy to use and most importantly, it saves oodles of time and help you finish your daily tasks in a hassle free way even when you are in a hurry.
CloudNet360 is all about simplicity, give it a try to sell more.

Choosing between a good affiliate program or the best autoresponder service is like having to choose between a having arms or having legs.
You really want both arms and legs and you really want to have killer autoresponder software and a great affiliate program as part of your online business model. Both contribute significant revenue streams you simply cannot hope to attain without them.
So we often get the question of why we offer only 1 affiliate program but give our merchants 6 autoresponders from which to choose. For the sake of brevity, I’ll answer the affiliate program issue in a later post and focus on the best autoresponder choices for now.
Let me first outline the six basic options and then I’ll explain why we have them all. Keep in mind that every autoresponder option listed below is already seamlessly integrated into CloudNet360.com and gives you product specific control and automation.
1. CRM & Autoresponder Integrated – autoresponder functionality is “built in” and is an integral part of the CloudNet360 CRM. Using the CRM and built in autoresponder provides the ultimate level of power and automation.
2. PremiumAR – Our autoresponder system built in partnership with Aweber so it basically works identically to Aweber. The advantage to using PremiumAR over Aweber is that your eBusiness Advisor will be able to provide additional direct support for this account. When you use Aweber, you’ll need to utilize their support people for all autoresponder related issues.
5. Get Response
So what’s the easy autoresponder software choice for your online shopping cart?
That’s precisely the point of CloudNet360 giving you so many options. There is no “1 best choice” for everyone so we give you 6 options to choose from and let you decide which is the best autoresponder for you and your business.
I have a personal favorite of course (I’m just a tiny bit biased) but I’m also a realist. If you have a giant list somewhere and don’t want to move it, you shouldn’t have to just because you want to use an alternative to 1shoppingcart or any of the other online shopping cart options.
We give you the freedom to choose CloudNet360.com and not have to worry about moving your email marketing list. After all, it’s your business so we let your choice of autoresponder remain your choice to make.
What’s the secret Apple “sauce” that has Apple “fan boys” lining up for days in advance of a product release?
Fortunately for Apple, there seems to be a number of trigger points that gets their fans salivating over a 2 ounce weight reduction on an iPad.
Which kind of makes you wonder how physically emaciated these iPad owners must be if they’re so exhausted from carrying their iPads around that 2-ounces is really going to be the make-or-break weight that gets them over the hump and through the day.
But that’s another topic I suppose.
For me, I’m neither a “fan boy” nor am I an Apple hater. I’m one of those rare creatures that actually use both Apple products and PC products daily for time wasting recreation and time saving, productive, work. And I really like specific features and benefits that both product lines have to offer.
In fact, I’ve written this missive on a Surface2 tablet, with the auxiliary keyboard, because I like the “real” keyboard feel and speed combined with the screen layout of the Surface2 versus the virtual keyboard of an iPad.
I also like the convenience of simply grabbing a tablet when the mood strikes me and moving to the solitude of not looking at my distracting MacBook Pro in the office with all the distractions of instant notifications, email, and other voices in the background. I write better in the break room at a table with a steamy hot cup of coffee.
I also find the 3rd party software is usually better on a PC than a Mac so there are multiple functional reasons I use both platforms daily.
But… and here’s the big but… but I always end up back into the iPad, MacBook Pro, iPhone 6 and iMac family for 1 simple reason.
They all work together.
One thing I absolutely love is the ability to copy information, like an address, from the browser of my MacBook and paste it into a Note and then have this Note magically appear on my iPhone.
I use this simple feature all the time and cannot live without it anymore!
Could I just email this to an Android or Windows phone? Of course I could… I just don’t want to.
And there’s likely an “app” I could download for an Android phone to replicate this convenient functionality or “rules” I could set up in Outlook… but I just don’t want to.
I don’t want “connect” things, or “configure” things… I have other things to do like actually using the tools I bought.
Apple just makes all these functions work together in a very easy to use, convenient manner, and I don’t know, nor do I care, if I can “set this up” with an Android or Windows environment. I just don’t want to!
When Apple haters criticize the lack of new features in the Apple platform, they’re not seeing the immense value that Apple is providing by including everything I need under 1 umbrella, connecting it all together, and making it all work as one cohesive system.
There will always be the 1% of the population that has endless hours to research, configure, maintain and then brag about their technical marvel of assembly but that’s never going to be an audience that appreciates the power of the pre-packaged system no matter how great it works “out of the box”.
This is where CloudNet360 comes in.
The CloudNet360 business automation system simply works. It brings all the pieces I need together into one easy to use system so you don’t need to construct a Frankenstein puzzle with a multitude of separate business applications.
I already have all these critical business tools included, integrated, and all working as one cohesive system:
- Website builder and CMS (content management system)
- Squeeze Page and Offer Templates
- CRM / Autoresponder
- Scheduling & Billing system
- Membership system
- Project Manager
- Shopping Cart
- Affiliate System
- One Click UpSell System
- Live Chat
- Click to Call
- Ticket Support System
Sure, I could “build” this same system with separate apps.
I could use TimeTrade for scheduling coaching events, and appointments, and Leadpages to build squeeze pages, and WordPress for a website, and Wishlist for a membership site, and Basecamp for a project manager, and Liveperson for live chat, and ZenDesk for ticket support, and 1Shoppingcart for a shopping cart, and MailChimp for an auto responder, and GoMoxie for click to call, and then hire a consultant in place of the CloudNet360 e-Business Advisor.
I could “connect” them all via API, sure… but they will never be truly integrated in the same manner that CloudNet360 is fully integrated. None of these “Frankenstein” systems would truly “talk” to each other the way CloudNet360 works as 1 big, happy family.
