Hey, it’s been a while I know. I’ve had some tragedies unfold, kinda knocked the wind outta my sails . . . but I’m back. 😀

I’ve decided to write a book. No it’s not an autobiography or some new marketing technique. It’s a romance/mystery/action-adventure/ novel. That’s a tall order I know, but if you’ve been following along for any length of time, you know what’s in me has GOT to come out! 

It’s actually finished, well in its third revision.

Writing a book is no joke, character development, foreshadowing, narrative propulsion, building tension, plots and subplots to move the story along, it’s neverending it seems. We won’t even get into the editing lol. 

The hardest part believe or not has been the first chapter, it’s gotta pop if you know what I mean. 

So anyway, I’m gonna be off the grid for a while again until it’s done but you know I’ll be back . . . bet. 

Secrets to Building a Profitable Email List – Part 2

SECRETS TO BUILDING A PROFITABLE EMAIL LIST

The Bare Essentials – What you’ll need to get started

The first thing you need to understand is this, building a profitable email list takes time; but don’t give up, give yourself about two or three months to really get going. Don’t be in a rush, you’re running a marathon not a sprint.

It also takes A LOT of attention to detail, careful thought, and most importantly, action.

 

The hardest part of any action plan is getting started, building a profitable email list is no different. Creating momentum always starts with a good plan; but it takes commitment to follow through and also a healthy dose of accountability. This isn’t like quitting a bad habit, it’s more like developing the right ones; just stay focused.

You can do this!

If this early stage process of list building seems boring and unproductive, like I said don’t give up. It takes time and effort, but you have to keep at it if you ever want to see progress. Just take it a bite at a time and you’ll get there.

So let’s start with some of the dry, boring stuff.

What are the bare essentials that you’ll need to master before you can start making money with your list?

Purchase a Domain and Get Hosting

Before you can do anything else, you’ll need to purchase a domain and get it hosted to set yourself apart with a working landing page.

You can do it in one of two ways, use a webpage-builder to create your website or do what a lot of top end marketers are doing nowadays, use a WordPress platform . . . like this one.

The best place to start is probably by determining the theme and URL for your website.

Your Theme and URL

Start by thinking about what niche your site will focus on.

A good rule of thumb is to keep a narrow focus. If you’ve ever seen “The Patriot” with Mel Gibson, you’ll remember the part when he and his young sons were planning an attack against the Brits after they’d come to their house and essentially kidnapped his oldest. He gave them guns and told them to, “..aim small, miss small”.

For instance, if you’re thinking about creating a niche site that markets retail products through affiliate links, drill down a little further and consider focusing only on one type of product, like fishing gear; preferably something your real familiar with, something you’re passionate about!

If you grow out of your niche in the future, you can always create another site or expand your current site. But for now, keep things narrow to avoid confusing your visitors.

The URL

Once you’ve settled on a theme, you’ll want to come up with unique URL for your site. Sometimes your first choice might already be taken, just get creative.

In the past, marketers used to select URLs that were actually the key phrase they were targeting (but with a dash between each word). That’s okay if you’re targeting a long tail keyword for a particular article or campaign; but if you plan to create a memorable, credible business, you’ll wanna avoid this for your main URL and opt for one that is short and as targeted as possible so that visitors won’t forget it.

Take careful notes about the theme you want and the specific URLs that you believe will fit well with your business model and niche (it’s that important).

Comparison Shop for Your Domain and Hosting

Most web hosting services like Go daddy for instance will allow you to purchase your domain and give you a unique domain related email address when you sign up.

It’s a lot easier to manage all of your information in one place. You can point the url wherever you want and also create sub-domains.

A good place to start on your search may be findmyhosting.com. This site lists an exhaustive break-down of 10 popular hosting services, which includes important details like:

  • The monthly payments
  • The setup fees related to your hosting, email, etc
  • Whether the domain registration is included at no additional cost
  • Whether you can setup email accounts through the domain
  • The plugins and features that come with the hosting service
  • Whether or not the hosting comes with a website building tool

Take some time and compare hosts to determine which one will work best for your particular needs.

Again, this is just the beginning so bear with me if this is already stuff you’re familiar with; but as a general rule of thumb (if you’re new to Internet business), you’ll want to look primarily at three items:

1. The ―Uptime Guarantee, which will give you a rough idea of whether a particular host has problems keeping sites up.

2. The price, as well as the various deals offered for locking in a 6- month or 12-month contract.

3. The site builder and plugins offered. Again, I recommend looking for a site that offers the WordPress capabilities like this one. It’ll greatly simplify the site-creation process.

I don’t wanna overwhelm you; but I just wanna finish my thoughts real quick lol.

Creating a website is important but for it to work effectively it needs to be marketable.

Create a Marketable Website

Before you even think about marketing your website, you’ll want to first spend the time to create a site that will sell itself well. It’s not critical that this site be flawless and expensive to build, but if you want it to close sales, then you should put in the time to make sure it’s attractive and will convert visitors into subscribers.

If you don’t wanna use a WordPress platform, you can go another route, it just takes longer and you need to get some tools.

A good place to start is by obtaining a WYSIWYG editor. It’ll allow you to make changes to your site on demand without learning HTML. It gives you a number of options.

If you’re able to pay upfront in order to make your life easier down the line, you may want to purchase something like XSitePro It’s a favorite among Internet marketers for a lot of reasons.

Not only will it allow you to build an attractive site, but it’ll also allow you to tweak the site in order to optimize it for search engine traffic (SEO).

Initially, I would just stick with something simple like WordPress though, it’s free and VERY user friendly. 🙂

Setup an Autoresponder Account

This is the last thing I’m gonna touch on today; but I just wanna start getting into the meat.

Whatever else you do with your site, you’ll also use it during the process of building a profitable email list (which is why you’re reading this blog lol). This means you’ll need an auto-responder.

An autoresponder is a tool that allows you to create mailing lists, manage member subscriptions, avoid spam complaints, and test and track results. With a regular email account you’re hands are tied because there are rules and regulatory laws and policies to protect people from spammers and invasions of privacy.

It’s a critical component to building a profitable email list campaign, an invaluable tool for all list owners; and as a new list-builder, you’re gonna wanna become intimately familiar with how they work.

Let’s start with the basics.

Selecting an Autoresponder Service

When it comes to selecting an autoresponder service, you have several choices.

I personally would send you to either Aweber, Get Response, or GVO.

You just follow the steps to create your list like this.

Let’s Review

So far you’ve created your website theme, selected an appropriate URL, purchased a domain name and hosting, got a WordPress site or selected a WYSIWYG editor, and picked an autoresponder service.

You’ve also created your first list, updated the subscription confirmation email, and created a form for your website, not bad. Congratulate yourself! You’ve just done what 98% of people don’t, you taken the first steps towards true financial freedom!

I know this seemed like a lot of information; but it’ll be here for you to go through again as many times as you need to. Thanks for stopping in, part three coming soon! 🙂

Traffic Generation, your ticket to freedom! Part 3

TRAFFIC GENERATION, YOUR TICKET TO FREEDOM

Pay Per Click Advertising

Pay per click advertising or “PPC” is another relatively low-cost way to promote your website. It can be really effective if you know what you’re doing.

When you use pay per click advertising, your ads show up along side of regular search engine results on Google, Yahoo, MSN etc..

One of the benefits of pay per click advertising is that you only pay when someone clicks on your ad, as opposed to paying for ad impressions.So if you’re well informed in this area and have a bit of marketing skills; enough to create a laser targeted campaign, it’ll pay off believe me

How Does Pay Per Click Advertising Work?

It’s really not that complicated but it’s critical that you have a thorough understanding of your target market because you’re “bidding” on keywords related to your niche.If you’re the highest bidder (among competing advertisers) for a particular keyword, your ads gonna get top placement, simple as that.

The less you bid, the lower your ad will appear.Every time someone clicks on your ad, you pay the amount you bid for that particular keyword.

The number of people who click on your ad makes a difference too.

Pay Per Click Advertising Essentials

Whatever search engine you decide on, they make money every time somebody clicks on your ad, so they’re real picky when it comes to placement. Your ad has to be approved before they’ll even put out out there. Relevance is definitely something you need to factor in. You may even wanna outsource the copy to somebody else (it’s that important). They’re not gonna let a low performing take up valuable real estate on their site.That means if your ad isn’t getting clicked on (no matter what you bid for placement) it might get deactivated.

But that’s the whole point anyway, you want people to click on your ad, because you want interested, targeted visitors to come from the search engines to your site so don’t be afraid to reach out for help. Lots of times our ego gets in the way of our success.

So, there’s two key components of your pay per click advertising campaign: your ad copy (what your ad says), and what keywords you use and your ad needs to do two things: get attention, and compel people to click through to your site.

You’re not necessarily trying to sell your product/service/opportunity with this ad, that’s what your web site is for.You just wanna get people interested enough to click through. That means you’ve gotta have a catchy headline, and give them a reason to click on your ad. We’re actually talking about this is the other series Secrets to Building a Profitable Email List, compelling headline, some benefits (not features) and a strong call to action.

This isn’t a squeeze page though, you’re our paying for these clicks so keep in mind, you don’t want tire kickers who click on your ad because they think they can get a freebie, you wanna make it clear your product is not free.Using words and phrases like “free shipping” and “50% discount” not only gives people a reason to click through that might be interested in your offer, it also gives freebie seekers a reason to stay away.

The other important factor of course is what keywords you bid on. Like I said they have to be laser focused.

If your keywords are too broad in scope, you can’t be sure you’ll touch the intended market you’re reaching out to. You’ll end up blowing through a ton of money looking for targeted visitors. You need to start out with targeted keywords to attract targeted visitors.

For instance, a keyword like gambling is way too broad.Is your target market looking for an offline casino, an online casino, information on how to play, 5 card draw, 5 card stud, blackjack, slot machines, roulette? Maybe they’ve got a relative addicted to gambling, and they’re looking for information that can help. Get specific.

If you were selling a “how to play roulette” book, obviously you’d waste a lot of money bidding on the keyword “gambling.”Instead, you might bid on keywords like “roulette book” or “how to play roulette” or “roulette tips.”

Bottom line? You need to be able to test your ads, to gauge results

If you don’t know which of your keywords and which of your ads are effective, you’re wasting your money.That means you need to track each and every campaign you set up.Keep the winners, and drop the losers.You’ll make much more money if you track, test, and tweak for maximum profitability.

Traffic Generation, your ticket to freedom! – Part 2

TRAFFIC GENERATION, YOUR TICKET TO FREEDOM!

How to Cash in With Your Own Sales Funnel

Traffic generation is multifaceted, today we’re gonna talk about another technique that will greatly increase your chances of success. It’s a little off the beaten path; but you need to get creative if you truly want massive results.

Chances are at some point, you’ve made a little money as an affiliate recommending a product or service to people and earned a commission every time somebody opted in using your referral link.

If you’ve done this before, you can see that being an affiliate is a quick and easy way to make money; but you’ve probably also realized that the real money isn’t necessarily in being an affiliate, the big bucks go to the ones running the affiliate program.

There’s nothing wrong with that either, it’s how free enterprise works; but what if you had your own sales funnel instead of relying on somebody elses? You’d have hundreds if not thousands of affiliates all working for you (even as an affiliate).

When you create your own funnel you have access to all the leads that run through it, so if the business folds or someone decides to copy what you’re doing and ends up knocking you off the leader board, you can just regroup and start over.

It’s also a good way to generate traffic for two reasons.

One, it’s extremely effective.

Network marketers often have their own lists and have already built relationships with their subscribers. So when they recommend your program or product to their list, you can expect to see higher than normal conversion rates.

Second, it’s a great way to generate traffic because you don’t pay up front for it, you only pay out in commissions when somebody signs up.

It’s like this, if you took out an ad someplace, you’d have to pay for it first . . . and the amount you paid would be the same no matter how many people actually visited your site; but when you’re paying affiliate commissions, you get to build a customer list, and you only pay commissions on actual sales.

(Are you getting excited yet?)

Because of the unique advantage, if you’re honest, you should be paying as high of a commission as possible to your affiliates and give special consideration to big earners that are producing results.

From time to time you’ll even see smart marketers offering 100 percent commissions like we do. The real money isn’t made on the front end, it’s made during the upsell process. It gives people an inside look so they can decide for themselves. People don’t like to be sold anymore, they like to buy after doing their own due diligence.

Sometimes proposals are made immediately to new customers as one time offers. You can go that route if you’d like to it’s still considered good business practice; but smart marketers put the prospects needs first.

Regardless of what type of traffic generation strategy you use, you’ll wanna stay in touch with existing customers. If you practice attraction marketing principles and give people the freedom to make their own informed decisions, you’ve got a better chance of them getting to know, like and trust you. That’s the goal. When you strike that balance, upsells are pretty easy.

Starting your own affiliate program

So how do you start your own affiliate program, and where do you find affiliates?

If you’re selling a digital product, start up costs are pretty low and it’s easy to get up and running in no time.

You can use Clickbank which does all the tracking for you and cuts the checks to both you and your affiliates. Their fees are a little higher than some of the other solutions out here, but since they handle everything for you, it’s kinda worth it.

The downside is, unless you personally recruit them, you don’t know who your affiliates are unless they actually make a sale. That can get dicey because you want people to be informed and at least making an effort to represent you in a way that is helpful to your long term success.

Paydotcom is a popular affiliate tracking program available to people with a Paypal account. The upside is that you get listed in their market place when you use their service, which is great! The downside is that you’ve gotta pay affiliates yourself each month. I’ve found it to be the practical solution for me personally. You just need to hold payment to affiliates back for a couple of weeks in case anybody wants a refund.

Sidenote: If you don’t care about being listed in the market place and you’re tech savvy (which I’m not), then you might consider running a script on your own site that works in tandem with whatever payment processing system you’re comfortable with.

You could actually get the benefits of all these solutions (like being listed on both Clickbank and Paydotcom), then you can set up multiple affiliate programs. Just make sure that you use different domains or at the very least different landing pages on your website.

In other words, only use one payment processor on a page, you don’t want any affiliate payout confusion.

Recruiting Your Sales Force

Once you’ve set up the affiliate program, the next thing to do is recruit affiliates.

Of course you want proven affiliates who are known to make sales; but don’t limit yourself by getting greedy. Plenty of people will sign up and never even promote their affiliate link. That’s okay though you’re goal is to help others escape the matrix too, to give them the tools and training they need to succeed; but you want to focus primarily on those who take action on their own without coaxing them along.

Babysitting affiliates just cripples their capacity to produce.

It’s kinda like when a butterfly is trying to escape out of the cocoon, if you go and slit it open, it’ll drop to the ground and never learn to fly.

Moving on.

Just being in Clickbank and/or Paydotcom could land you a few affiliates. Getting yourself listed in affiliate directories may help too. Advertising your affiliate program on your own site is a good idea (but not on the sales page, your current affiliates will worry about hijacking and commission theft).

Another way to do it is to “hunt”, to actively look for and recruit affiliates. Write personal emails to them or call them up on the phone to ask if they’d partner with you. I know it’s not popular; but it’s an option. 😉

Just like with joint ventures, you’ve gotta make sure the proposals are tipped heavily in their favor, that you focuses on the their needs first. . . not yours.

With heavy hitters, you might even consider initially giving them full access to your product for free. Most honest people won’t recommend something without using it themselves and since they’re doing you a favor, it would be a huge insult (and pretty short-sighted on your part) to ask ’em to buy your product in order to review it.

You can look for potential affiliates all around your niche. Don’t be afraid to talk to other marketers who have their own products, blogs, sites, newsletters and forums because they’ll probably already have an audience to sell to. Check the market places at Clickbank and Paydotcom to find other authors. Run a search in Google for your niche’s most popular keywords, and just approach the people who hold the top spots on the first few pages (as well as those who are advertising using pay per click).

“Success is the child of audacity”

Keep an eye out for super affiliates on leader boards in other companies. If what you have is truly remarkable, chances are they’ll take a look. Practically every marketer is at least involved an affiliate program at some level, and they can only promote so many products. What’s different about yours? What makes your affiliate program not only different but better than other affiliate programs? Do you have exceptionally high conversion rates plus high commission pay outs? Cool contests?

Make a compelling argument and just ask, it can’t hurt.

And finally, you’ll want to make it as easy as possible for an affiliate to promote. The best ones will likely write their own ads rather than using the cookie approach; but that doesn’t exempt you from providing your downline with the tools and training they’re gonna need like capture pages, swipe copy for email campaigns, ad content and banners that they can use to promote etc.

Some affiliates who won’t directly use your affiliate tools may still use them as a foundation to build their own campaign around. Giving your affiliates these tools saves them a lot of time and heartache. The more time you can save them, and the easier it is to promote your product, the more likely an affiliate will come on board (and stick around).

One more thing.

This may seem extremely obvious, but it’s worth saying anyway: pay your affiliates promptly! If you say you’ll pay in 30 days, then pay in 30 days. Better yet, pay every two weeks or even weekly. Some vendors even choose to pay daily.

Don’t jerk your affiliates around and give them excuses as to why you were even one day late with payments. When the affiliate promoted, they fulfilled their end of the bargain – if you want to fulfill your end, you need to pay promptly, keep your word.

Of course using Clickbank.com makes this point moot because like I said, they take care of your affiliate payments for you. If you might have even a little trouble paying your affiliates on time then use Clickbank.

Secrets to Building a Profitable Email List – Part 1

SECRETS TO BUILDING A PROFITABLE EMAIL LIST

Introduction: Your Number One Asset


You might be wondering, “What’s the big deal?”.

After all, it seems like an awful a lot of work to find prospects, get them to opt-into your newsletter or blog, create fresh daily or weekly content to send. Isn’t having your own business about freedom?”

Yes it is; but there’s a secret to building a profitable email list, are you ready? (shhh) It does take a little sacrifice and a bit of effort.

You can’t just send low-grade content and expect them to buy just because you sent out an email. It takes time and it takes attention to detail to do things right. That’s exactly why many marketers never do it.

But that’s a big mistake that hopefully you don’t make.

Building a profitable email list basics

Marketing to your list is one of the most profitable things you can do in this game, that’s what I’m gonna show you how to do in this series.

So why is building an email list a good idea? There are many reasons, but these five are probably the most important:

1) Building a list allows you to reduce the cost of acquiring new customers. No matter what you might think, it’s much, much cheaper to pre-qualify and pitch to one person until they buy than it is to pitch to different people until one of them buys.

2) Building a list allows you to maximize the profit that you generate per customer.

3) Having a list means that you can participate in major launch events. Next time there’s a big launch, you can benefit by being one of the first affiliates to offer the product.

4) Having a list allows you to test your copy. With a captive audience, you can run controlled experiments to test your copy’s conversion rate before you pay to send the same advertisement out to a larger audience.

5) Having a list allows you to bring more to the table in future joint venture partnerships. Rather than simply offering to do part of the product-creation work, you can now offer to market the completed product to your list.

For these five reasons and many, many others, list building is one of the most profitable things you can do as an Internet marketer. Not only will it help you to monetize your current sites better, but it will also open up new avenues for partnership and marketing.
