The fact is people are struggling with IM and online business so this post will be about making you some money . You know that we are also very big on list building, but most people ignore this important step so here is a very effective email marketing strategy that can print you money on demand.
The fact is – you have to capture those leads that come to your site. It is a MUST!
Please listen to this strategy before you run away because it can really help you get a regular income and overall you do not have to work more than a couple of hours to maintain it (of course this is after you set it up ).
We often hear of people saying – if I could just make $500 extra from this business, it would really really help me. And we will show you how to do exactly that (and probably more), so listen up.
This can be done in any industry. Money saving tips, weight loss, IM and so on. The investments you need are a few: Hosting, Domain Name and of course email auto responder such as Aweber.
The opt in should be for something people really can use. So do give away something of a great value. If in weight loss industry, give them a really cool diet plan… something people would pay money to get. In IM industry it can be a training of some kind, in money saving tips, it could be secret strategies to cut the cost or pay off debt faster, and so on. But what ever it is, make sure you do give them quality info.
The goal is to build a large list, but it does not happen over night!
So you will need to:
- Write a powerful guide – must be something of a great value
- Set up a squeeze page – make it so juicy that you would personally want to subscribe!
- Set up your Thank You page – on this page you can give bonuses, sell ad space,
- Set up a One time offer – this is your “success” page on Aweber list settings (meaning, that the real free guide is emailed to them)
- Add privacy and disclaimer statement
- Set up email auto responder and you are ready to go. Add your thank you as a redirect on your web form – that is, they would see your Thank You page right after filling in their name and email address, and your success page will be one time offer)

But first, if you build a list you have many benefits. You can set up a one time offer and sell a product at 50% off. This page can easily convert at 5-10% because the discount is huge. It is better if you can make this offer to be a recurring membership.
Second, as you build the list, you can send your subscribers regular emails and 4 times a month sell an ad space to other IMer’s for $100 for 200 clicks. That means right there you can get $400 bucks from your list. And if you mail your list 2 times only, you can easily make affiliate sales, your own product sales and of course ad space revenue.
Yes, I know, in order to get to that you need to build the list first. So how to do it? Here is how:
In order for this to work, you will need to drive at least 10000 people to your site… Out of those 10000 you should get approximately 3000-4000 subscriber list. That is if your squeeze page converts at 50% and considering that some people will never confirm their subscription.
With a list of 3000 people, you can easily get 200 clicks on your email message, making you $400 per month if you sell 1 ad per week. Those clicks are better than Google ads and people are often willing to pay even more for list clicks. Keep that in mind.
Of course when starting, the biggest obstacle is the traffic. You can get Web Traffic Tutorials to get you started. You either have to spend the money traffic OR you have to spend your time on it. If you spend the money, that means paying or ad space such as Google ads and banner ads, paid guest posts. Or you can write lots of articles driving traffic to your site, and you can spend time in the forums where people are interested in what you have to offer.
Most people will choose the second option – articles.
If that is the case, then select some very low competition keywords for your articles.
First, make sure they don’t have more than 5000-10000 competing pages.
Second, keep in mind other products when selecting your articles. This is a little twist and can drive you a lot of good traffic. Let’s say you are promoting xyz diet. For a popular diet, people do type in things such as “review of xyz diet”. If those keywords do not have lots of competition, use them and in your article do a detailed review of that product, but saying, “however, this site is giving you a free guide on the same tips that xyz diet advertises”. If they had to spend the money on the first, they will gladly sign up for the free guide.
Side note: Once you start getting regular traffic and sign ups, you can do traffic exchanges with other list builders who offer similar service or a guide as yourself, by placing an ad on their thank you page and they place an ad on your thank you page.
Now your goal is to set up 100 of those articles and you can post them on sites such as ezinearticles, usfreeads, goarticles, squidoo and so forth. Give these articles you submitted a little link boosting (you can outsource to link building service) so they rank faster and don’t forget to do on page optimization for them. If you are not good at writing articles, outsource the task to sites such as thecontentauthority.com.
Also, don’t forget to go with recurring memberships… This will eventually make you work less and earn more. This will eventually create a steady flow of income.
We are not going to say this is easy… There is nothing easy about online business, BUT this is steady, it is the right and effective email marketing strategy which can easily create unlimited income for you and if you play it smart with recurring income, you can create truckloads of money !
