A List Building Strategy that's working extremely well for me.

by uwa223 487 replies
I have not posted on this forum lately; but today, I'm going to share with you the list building strategy that's working extremely well for me. I'm going to keep this really short and simple. Do not ask me to provide proof of my earnings or links to my squeeze pages as I'm not here to sell you anything.

Here are some of my list building dos and don'ts -

** For the giveaway, I rarely use a report that can be downloaded right after they opt in as a high percentage of subscribers will opt out the minute they get their hands on your report.

I usually buy a high quality plr and turn it into a 7 to 10 day e-course. I do not use the PDF format to deliver the course. Instead, I do so via a wordpress private blog. I create a page for each day of the e-course. As I create these pages, I do some rewriting - such as changing the titles and headlines; and writing a small, one paragraph intro or summary of the page. I do not use a membership site.

If you need to know how to keep your blog private - from being indexed by search engines - the video below will show how.

** I never redirect people to an offer the minute they opt in. To me, list building is about developing a relationship with your subscribers; sending them to an offer immediately after subscribing is not the best way to start building that long-lasting relationship. I find that waiting at least until the third day before I make them an offer work best in the long term.

Since I only use high quality giveaways, I give them the option to get immediate access to the rest of the course (on the third day) for at least $7.00 ($17-27 if it includes professional, HD videos). I make this offer on the email that goes out to let them know that day 3 has been added to the blog; and at the bottom of that particular e-course page.

__________________________________________________ ________

Here is a trick I learned from the writer of "The 4 Letter Killer", David Bullock; according to David, this eBook was downloaded over 260,000 times. He was great at keeping his subscribers active, happy and anxiously waiting for his next email. I know this for a fact, I was one of those subscribers for over 5 years.

His offer would be something like this: "Hello Frank, I hope you are having a wonderful day. I found something that can really help you with your online business. This system is so good that I decided to buy the rights to it so I can share it with you. Click the link below for complete details. P.S. Don't forget to click on the elephant at the bottom of the page for a nice surprise."

When you clicked on the elephant (pink, purple, blue; don't remember the color), you would be taken to a Paypal payment page where the price would be $10-$20 less than the advertized price. I found myself clicking on that darn elephant and buying his products every Friday morning; our relationship lasted until he stopped sending emails 6 years later. I suspect that there were thousands of elephant clickers on his list.

Later, I found out that the "exclusive product" he bought just for me were resell rights items from the Unselfish Marketer membership site; but this didn't upset me for they were of high quality and I always learned something from them.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

** On the squeeze page, I always use two fields - First name and email address. Personally, I think that if you want to develop a relationship with your subscriber, you need to make them feel that they are more than just an email address to you.

** For my squeeze page - I use the one that comes with the product or I develop my own using OptimizePress. Most of the private label rights products I purchase provide excellent marketing material. I also use Presell Crusher to create presell surveys landing pages.

** On day 1, I tell my subscribers how important it is for them to stick with the e-course 'til the very end; they get an introduction to the course; my promise to them; what to expect over the next few days, etc. Day 1 is basically a sales or presell letter to the course. It works great! Sometimes, I get emails asking if they can buy the entire course right after they have read Day 1.

** I keep my promises. On my squeeze page, I promise that I'm not going to share their info with other marketers, and I keep it. I keep this promise by not doing ad swaps or selling solo ads.

** I only email my list two times per week - Freebie Tuesday and Bargain Friday. On Tuesday, I sent them something that is related to the course for free. I make sure the info is good before I send it to them. On Friday, I sent them an offer. It could be my own product or a high quality resell rights products.

** I do promote clickbank products within the e-courses. Especially the ones with rebilling. I tell my subscribers that they will be added to a mailing list once they make a purchase; I also remind them that they can get a refund within 60 day and can opt out from the seller's list any time they wish to do so.

** My favorite niche is online marketing / mmo as it offers so many products you can offer; but there is one that I really enjoy, it's the dog training niche. I recently developed a course from an e-book and mp3 I purchased 6 years ago. It's a 15 day course, but by the third day I give the subscriber the option to pay a small price to have immediate access to the rest of the course; I get a lot of takers to this offer - and of course, I practice that "David Bullock thing". I have a picture of a dog at the bottom of the sales page and tell them.... Click on my doggie for a nice surprise"; two things happen when they click on my doggie, 1 - they get a $10 discount and .... 2 - I hear my cash register going crazy ... ching!-ching!-ching!

** I usually buy a new domain name for each course and install wordpress on the root domain and subdomain. The root domain is for the landing and presell pages; the subdomain is for the private blog I use to deliver the course.

** How I promote my e-courses - For each e-course I develop, I create a fan page, a youtube channel and a slideshare account. My goal per day is to upload at least 5 videos to youtube and facebook and 5 presentations to slideshare for the first 7 days. I upload the same videos to youtube and facebook; the power point presentations is basically the same info as in the videos. After 7 days, I have 35 videos on youtube, 35 on facebook, and 35 presentation on slideshare sending free traffic to my e-course squeeze page. Recently, I started buying bookmarking and blog posting gigs from the Warriors For Hire forum and this has greatly increased my traffic and opt ins.

How long does it take to upload each e-course? In less than a day I can have the e-course, fan page, youtube and slideshare account done. I could do much better - but my love for netflix's sci-fi movies will not let me.

About my video marketing - My videos and presentations are not spammy; I do provide useful information. I never had any of my videos banned or deleted by youtube. I use youtube's creative commons on a daily basis. Youtube cc has some great videos that you can use as your own without worrying about copyright infringements. They even provide you with an online editor so that are able to add an intro and ending with your info to these videos. Below is the link to the youtube creative commons video editor.

https://www.youtube.com/editor

As of today, I have 15 e-courses uploaded and getting me subscribers on a daily basis. My initial goal was to get at least 10 subscribers per e-course - per day. I have achieved that - and more. I have found this to be the best and fastest way to $100 per day online.

To get started, you'll need a hosting account, an autoresponder and a high quality plr product. I stay away from free autoresponders - as they are not really free.

If you have any questions - other than asking me for one of my links - don't hesitate to ask.

I leave you with this.....

** As a marketer, you will always be building a list - whether you want to or not. If you are not building a list of your very own .... then .... you are building the lists of the owners of the products you are promoting. Which list do you want to build?

Best Wishes, Frank

      Awesome information Frank. I love the idea of letting them get the first part free then having to pay for the full course. Maybe another way to do this is give a condenced overview version that covers everything and provides value then have a full course that goes deep into each subject.

      Anyways,
      Thank you

      Hi Chaudhary,

      Most of my private label rights products on online marketing / mmo come from jvzoo and the warriors special offer forum. I look for plr products that can be given away for free in exchange of lead. Most high quality plr sellers don't allow you to use it as web content, but will allow you to use the content on a membership site or private blog. When the plr license does not allow me to use the product as I need to, I contact the seller and offer to purchase better rights. I rarely get turned down when I explain how I'm going to use their product.

      Regards, Frank

        Hi Franck
        Your technique is very interesting.
        I have 2 questions:
        How do you find the Free PLR on JVzoo in exchange for leads?
        I promotes offers, and when I use their originals squeeze pages or sales pages, they usually have an optin where they get my leads anyway, unless I do my own squeeze page and built up my list with my option.

        Thank you

            What I was actually trying to ask, is how technically Frank is dealing with the PLR owners when it comes to exchange a free PLR against the lead's list.

            Thanks

                Hi Jacko - Thanks for your question. The developer of Presell Crusher have several videos on youtube that shows everything you need to know about the product. It's very simple to use. You just ask questions and give people the option to answer yes or no. Once they are done answering the questions, you can redirect them to an optin form or offer.
                Best Regards.

          Hi Walt - I think you misunderstood my post. The plr that I get from JVZoo are not free as I have to pay for them. My subscribers get it for free.

          Some plr licenses state that you cannot give the product away as a freebie and even provide a suggested price. Technically, when you ask for an email address in exchange for the plr product, you are not giving it away for free.

          You should always have people optin to your own list before redirecting them to an affiliate offer page; otherwise, you are spending your time and money to build the list for the owner of the affiliate offer.

          Best Regards,

    Hi,

    You could create a 7-10 day e-course out of those you just shared!

    Well done this will go down well with your reputation as someone who gives
    real value to his followers.

      Hey Jason - the best thing about the e-course approach is that you are building a relationship with your subscribers on autopilot. Once you set up your e-course the rest is easy. There is no need to write big follow up emails during the first 7-10 days - or ever for that matter. My follow ups emails are short, personal and to the point.

      ______________________________________________
      Here is an example,,,,

      Hello John -
      I hope you are doing great.
      Just wanted to let you that I just uploaded day 3 of the ____ ____ training.

      Here is the link....

      If you have questions, please post them at the bottom of the page
      and I will answer them as soon as possible.

      Best Regards,
      Frank

          Frank places the e-course content on private blog pages that are not indexed by Google.

          Also the URLs for the pages are not going to be obvious, such as part1, part2, etc.

          Hi Issyvee - Peter answered your question above. The pages URLs are sent via emails. The only links you will see are links to pages that you have already viewed. For example - if you are up to day 3, you will see links back to day 1 & 2.

            I think there's a setting in the WP Dashboard where you can choose to have the search engines to either have access or not to the pages, by turning it on or off. Correct me if I'm wrong Frank.

          I like to sign up for other marketers lists and see the subject lines and style they use as a baseline. Of course you can always hire a copywriter to write a 7 day AR series for you as well. Just tell them about your product or e-course and what you are trying to accomplish.

          Like the example above, just keep it personal and simple.

          You will need an autoresponder; aweber or get response will do; both offer free 30 days trial.

          If you are new to list building, you need to spend time doing research. You will find everything you need to know on this forum and on youtube - absolutely FREE. Go to youtube and enter keywords such as "how to build an email list", "how to create a sales funnel", "how to setup your autoresponder". etc. In a few days, you will learn a great deal - without spending a dime.

              Here are three things you must do ...
              1- Use your blog to build a list.
              2- Choose a niche that people wouldn't mind sharing with their friends. For example, no one is going to share a penis enlargement, how to treat yeast infection or how to cure herpes blog or fan page with their friends.
              3- Interact with your subscribers. Answer their questions and concerns.

              Best Wishes, Frank

                Hi Frank. Great thread. I especially like how youe are building a saleable asset in the process.

                One question. For each of your ecourses: do you use your own name, a pseudoname or a handle? I'm especially interested in the context of selling the sites at a later date and not having to introduce a new owner to everyone.

                Thanks

                  Hi Mark - Appreciate your words. I use pen names. For the e-courses I recently traded (golf and gardening) , I introduced the new owners as admins because they wanted to use their real names.
                  Regards, Frank

      Hi Parg,
      I use the creative commons videos for my youtube and facebook accts only;
      Some of these videos are really great and it only take a few minutes to edit and add them to my youtube acct. I get plenty of views and traffic to my landing page from them.
      Regards,

    These are great tips Frank.

    I'm sure that this leads to more responsive, hungry subscribers that anticipate the email that is coming.

    I used to provide the download link to the course right after they opt-in and I paid dearly for it.

    The result was a dead list.

    Now, I've changed to put the content in the email, and since then I've been getting more responsive subs.

    I usually don't give an offer until the15th day.

    List-building is all about the relationship, so build that trust early on!

Do not ask me to provide proof of my earnings or links to my squeeze pages as I'm not here to sell you anything.

    Here are some of my list building dos and don'ts -

    ** For the giveaway, I rarely use a report that can be downloaded right after they opt in as a high percentage of subscribers will opt out the minute they get their hands on your report.

    I usually buy a high quality plr and turn it into a 7 to 10 day e-course. I do not use the PDF format to deliver the course. Instead, I do so via a wordpress private blog. I create a page for each day of the e-course. As I create these pages, I do some rewriting - such as changing the titles and headlines; and writing a small, one paragraph intro or summary of the page. I do not use a membership site.

    If you need to know how to keep your blog private - from being indexed by search engines - the video below will show how.

    WordPress Tutorial - How to Block Your Site From Search Engines in WordPress - YouTube

    ** I never redirect people to an offer the minute they opt in. To me, list building is about developing a relationship with your subscribers; sending them to an offer immediately after subscribing is not the best way to start building that long-lasting relationship. I find that waiting at least until the third day before I make them an offer work best in the long term.

    Since I only use high quality giveaways, I give them the option to get immediate access to the rest of the course (on the third day) for at least $7.00 ($17-27 if it includes professional, HD videos). I make this offer on the email that goes out to let them know that day 3 has been added to the blog; and at the bottom of that particular e-course page.

    __________________________________________________ ________

    Here is a trick I learned from the writer of "The 4 Letter Killer", David Bullock; according to David, this eBook was downloaded over 260,000 times. He was great at keeping his subscribers active, happy and anxiously waiting for his next email. I know this for a fact, I was one of those subscribers for over 5 years.

    His offer would be something like this: "Hello Frank, I hope you are having a wonderful day. I found something that can really help you with your online business. This system is so good that I decided to buy the rights to it so I can share it with you. Click the link below for complete details. P.S. Don't forget to click on the elephant at the bottom of the page for a nice surprise."

    When you clicked on the elephant (pink, purple, blue; don't remember the color), you would be taken to a Paypal payment page where the price would be $10-$20 less than the advertized price. I found myself clicking on that darn elephant and buying his products every Friday morning; our relationship lasted until he stopped sending emails 6 years later. I suspect that there were thousands of elephant clickers on his list.

    Later, I found out that the "exclusive product" he bought just for me were resell rights items from the Unselfish Marketer membership site; but this didn't upset me for they were of high quality and I always learned something from them.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    ** On the squeeze page, I always use two fields - First name and email address. Personally, I think that if you want to develop a relationship with your subscriber, you need to make them feel that they are more than just an email address to you.

    ** For my squeeze page - I use the one that comes with the product or I develop my own using OptimizePress. Most of the private label rights products I purchase provide excellent marketing material. I also use Presell Crusher to create presell surveys landing pages.

    ** On day 1, I tell my subscribers how important it is for them to stick with the e-course 'til the very end; they get an introduction to the course; my promise to them; what to expect over the next few days, etc. Day 1 is basically a sales or presell letter to the course. It works great! Sometimes, I get emails asking if they can buy the entire course right after they have read Day 1.

    ** I keep my promises. On my squeeze page, I promise that I'm not going to share their info with other marketers, and I keep it. I keep this promise by not doing ad swaps or selling solo ads.

    ** I only email my list two times per week - Freebie Tuesday and Bargain Friday. On Tuesday, I sent them something that is related to the course for free. I make sure the info is good before I send it to them. On Friday, I sent them an offer. It could be my own product or a high quality resell rights products.

    ** I do promote clickbank products within the e-courses. Especially the ones with rebilling. I tell my subscribers that they will be added to a mailing list once they make a purchase; I also remind them that they can get a refund within 60 day and can opt out from the seller's list any time they wish to do so.

    ** My favorite niche is online marketing / mmo as it offers so many products you can offer; but there is one that I really enjoy, it's the dog training niche. I recently developed a course from an e-book and mp3 I purchased 6 years ago. It's a 15 day course, but by the third day I give the subscriber the option to pay a small price to have immediate access to the rest of the course; I get a lot of takers to this offer - and of course, I practice that "David Bullock thing". I have a picture of a dog at the bottom of the sales page and tell them.... Click on my doggie for a nice surprise"; two things happen when they click on my doggie, 1 - they get a $10 discount and .... 2 - I hear my cash register going crazy ... ching!-ching!-ching!

    ** I usually buy a new domain name for each course and install wordpress on the root domain and subdomain. The root domain is for the landing and presell pages; the subdomain is for the private blog I use to deliver the course.

    ** How I promote my e-courses - For each e-course I develop, I create a fan page, a youtube channel and a slideshare account. My goal per day is to upload at least 5 videos to youtube and facebook and 5 presentations to slideshare for the first 7 days. I upload the same videos to youtube and facebook; the power point presentations is basically the same info as in the videos. After 7 days, I have 35 videos on youtube, 35 on facebook, and 35 presentation on slideshare sending free traffic to my e-course squeeze page. Recently, I started buying bookmarking and blog posting gigs from the Warriors For Hire forum and this has greatly increased my traffic and opt ins.

    How long does it take to upload each e-course? In less than a day I can have the e-course, fan page, youtube and slideshare account done. I could do much better - but my love for netflix's sci-fi movies will not let me.

    About my video marketing - My videos and presentations are not spammy; I do provide useful information. I never had any of my videos banned or deleted by youtube. I use youtube's creative commons on a daily basis. Youtube cc has some great videos that you can use as your own without worrying about copyright infringements. They even provide you with an online editor so that are able to add an intro and ending with your info to these videos. Below is the link to the youtube creative commons video editor.

    https://www.youtube.com/editor

    As of today, I have 15 e-courses uploaded and getting me subscribers on a daily basis. My initial goal was to get at least 10 subscribers per e-course - per day. I have achieved that - and more. I have found this to be the best and fastest way to $100 per day online.

    To get started, you'll need a hosting account, an autoresponder and a high quality plr product. I stay away from free autoresponders - as they are not really free.

    If you have any questions - other than asking me for one of my links - don't hesitate to ask.

    I leave you with this.....

    ** As a marketer, you will always be building a list - whether you want to or not. If you are not building a list of your very own .... then .... you are building the lists of the owners of the products you are promoting. Which list do you want to build?

    Best Wishes, Frank

      Hi Raelyn -
      My private blogs are really membership sites, but without the monthly subscription fees. Since there are no monthly fees, people don't drop out. I don't push them into buying anything; I let the content do the selling for me. I provide valuable and up-to-date info and get thanked over and over for it. I make sales on a daily basis from these private blogs by inserting links within the content. When you read an online newspaper or magazine, you are going to see blue links leading to related stories. I use the same techniques and they really work.

      Here is an example.....

      "making sales online ...blah...blah...blah... creating your own blog ...blah...blah...blah... (The best converting website ever? See my results!). and more......blah...blah...blah...

      When they click on the link, they are taken to a post that has an image of my cb earnings per hops that are extremely high. I give them a brief overview of the system that can show them how to develop websites that make sales; I add a link for them to click and next thing you know... there are $44 on my cb account - from just one or two hops!

      Free membership sites do work. Do a search on google for "top earning blogs" and you will see. If people would copy what the owners of these blogs are doing, they could be doing just as well if they stick with it for a year or two.

      I have been doing e-courses for many years. My first one (2001-2003) was on network marketing training; it had over 40,000 subscribers. It helped me launch 3 hugely successful inhouse programs that kept me busy and making money for almost 9 years.

      Best Wishes,

      Hi Niles - They get the entire e-course for free. Most of my money comes from sharing links to cb products (see my post above).

      On day 3, I give them the option to buy the course if they want immediate access to all the pages.

      As the list grows, I get more and more people wanting immediate access to the entire course the same day they join. Because of this, I have been thinking of moving the full access option to day 2.

    Hi, Frank.. Thanks a lot for your thread..

    Making an e-course is a great thing to keep our subscribers reading followup emails..

    Do you use single or double opt-in??

    I did it it a couple times and the results is my list become more responsive.. Even after the course finished and i started to send broadcast/newsletters, they keep opening and my CTR went to 5-7%..
    I always use single opt-in, (except for buyers list..)

    Just wondering if the CTR can be higher when using double opt-in??

      Hello jfalxr,
      I use double opt-in and let them know that they will be getting their access info to the course by email. When I used single opt-in in the past, I was getting too many spam complains.

    Thanks a lot for the share.

    I picked up 5 different ideas that I can take action on right away.

    I was thinking of changing my follow up anyway and you gave me some good ideas.

    Have you ever thought of adding adsense to your blog to add some extra revenue?

    I started sending all my non T1 subs to blog posts with adsense and the resuts have been very good. Just a thought.

    Well better get to work on this! Thanks again

      Hi - I'm happy you got some good ideas from this thread.

      About adsense - A few years ago I created 50 blogs hoping to make $1-$5 from adsense per day per blog. Only 5 of those blogs went on to reach my desired income goal; and those were the blogs that I updated with a new post at least once a week. The ones that I didn't update -- because I was not interested or didn't know much about the niches -- only made about a buck a month.

      Thanks to adsense, I developed what I call the "Adsense Mentality". In other words, I'm still building a whole bunch of sites every time an ideas comes to mind. No so long ago I wanted to create a cb product reviews site. The adsense metality took over and I went on to built 10 of them. The ones that I worked on once-in-while (3 of them) made money on a regular basis; the rest ... a few sales here and there.

      The same thing happened when I decided to going back to creating e-courses. I went on to create 15 of them and found myself unable to manage all of them. I had to train a part-timer to provide support and answer questions. My first e-course had over 40,000 subscribers and helped me launch 3 fabulous programs - but once again - thanks to my adsense mentality - I forgot that 1 blog could make as much money as 15 of them - if you stay on top of it.

      The way you are using adsense is one of the best ways to do it. But also, don't hesitate to add an affiliate offer to your post. It could be the difference between making $5 a day or $50 per day.

      Don't use banners on your post as most people suffer from "banner blindness". I'm one of them; I don't even read banners any more. Instead do your links like I show on post #18 above.

      Have a great day.

      - Frank -

    Awesome share Frank!

    How would you apply this to a postcard marketing for dentists business...where I would be looking for ways to build a dentist list for future postcard mailing opportunities?
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[9351232].message }}
    • Profile picture of the author uwa223
      Hi there - As usual, I going to tell you a little story before answering your questions. I do have lots of stories to tell.

      Postcards are my all-time favorite way of building a business. It's also how I met my second wife. To this day, I don't know what impressed her the most about me; my good looks or the fact that I had a big a$$ stack of $1 bill piled up in front of me. hahaha.

      During the mid 80's and late 90's, I built 2 huge mlm downlines (Life Plus and Changes International) mailing two of the most response-getting postcards ever. I was mailing about 60,000 postcards per month myself and asking for $2 to cover the cost of mailing them the package. The $2 request was also a way of separating the good prospects from the freebie-seekers. I was also sending out packets on behalf of my organizations. Every time I went to the post office, the clerk would hand me a box full of letters - each containing 2 bucks. Each packet was costing me about 46 cents for printing and mailing.

      My next thread will be on how I built an offline affiliate program in the early 90's.

      And now to answer your questions. If you are going to be providing a service to dentists, you can contact them by email messages and by postcards. Your email and mailing list can be compiled by doing a google search (dentists in new york , etc.). Google will provide you with a never ending list of prospects.

      Most businesses will not respond to emails, Some get hundreds of spam per day and it's more than likely that your message will be treated as a spam - and deleted with the rest. I for one will never purchase anything from people who send me unsolicited emails - and there are lots of business owners who feel the same way.

      Postcard mailers get treated better. I get a postcards once a while and if the offer can be useful to my business, that postcard will stay at my desk for a while.

      I always used yellow stock paper for my postcards. I tested different headlines and bullet points until I found the pc that was getting the most responses.

      Compiling your mailing list - you can use MS Word's Envelope and Labels tool - which you can find under the mailing tab. Use the 30 per sheet label template. You can find 30 names to mail to within the first 3-5 pages of your search. You can get peel-and-stick labels at walmart or any other supply store in your area. Adding the names to labels and getting ready the postcards to be mailed can be done in 30-45 minutes (maybe less). You are going to find that it might take several mailings before a person order from you; thus, mailing to the same list more than once will work.

      Do one website per niche. Try to sell them a service they would need on a monthly basis. The cost of printing and mailing 1000 postcards can be less than 40 cents per card (.34 cent stamp and about .03 per card). Make sure that one order from your mailing can cover these expenses. Don't order the postcards from your local printer. You can get them for much less online.

      Most off-line wso sellers will tell you that you can get rich by sending 30 unsolicited emails per day; I think that you would probably do much better by sending 30 postcards per day - as postcards will be kept a lot longer than spam emails.

      Take care, Frank

Your email and mailing list can be compiled by doing a google search (dentists in new york , etc.). Google will provide you with a never ending list of prospects.

        Most businesses will not respond to emails, Some get hundreds of spam per day and it's more than likely that your message will be treated as a spam - and deleted with the rest. I for one will never purchase anything from people who send me unsolicited emails - and there are lots of business owners who feel the same way.

        Postcard mailers get treated better. I get a postcards once a while and if the offer can be useful to my business, that postcard will stay at my desk for a while.

        I always used yellow stock paper for my postcards. I tested different headlines and bullet points until I found the pc that was getting the most responses.

        Compiling your mailing list - you can use MS Word's Envelope and Labels tool - which you can find under the mailing tab. Use the 30 per sheet label template. You can find 30 names to mail to within the first 3-5 pages of your search. You can get peel-and-stick labels at walmart or any other supply store in your area. Adding the names to labels and getting ready the postcards to be mailed can be done in 30-45 minutes (maybe less). You are going to find that it might take several mailings before a person order from you; thus, mailing to the same list more than once will work.

        Do one website per niche. Try to sell them a service they would need on a monthly basis. The cost of printing and mailing 1000 postcards can be less than 40 cents per card (.34 cent stamp and about .03 per card). Make sure that one order from your mailing can cover these expenses. Don't order the postcards from your local printer. You can get them for much less online.

        Most off-line wso sellers will tell you that you can get rich by sending 30 unsolicited emails per day; I think that you would probably do much better by sending 30 postcards per day - as postcards will be kept a lot longer than spam emails.

        Take care, Frank
        Thanks again Frank!

        The business is actually postcard marketing and direct mail, so I'm looking for the best way to build an opt-in list of dental practices interested in allowing us to do their future postcard mailing campaigns.

          Dental marketing is not an easy niche to break into, but nothing is impossible when you have a good marketing system in place. When you do a search on google for "dental marketing". the top of the page and right side are filled with ads. The suggested bid for the Dental Marketing keyword is $23.23. In fact, all the top keywords bids are over $20.00. If advertisers are willing to spend that much on a search term, then there is a lot money to be made on that niche.

          Best wishes, Frank

      How would you apply this to a postcard marketing for dentists business...where I would be looking for ways to build a dentist list for future postcard mailing opportunities?
      This is wholly dependent upon the product/service you will be marketing to them in the future. However if you structure your emails to be short, personalized, and inquiring about something (relatable to your product) -- then you will get responses.

      It might take more email exchanges to transition them into your funnel, but this is marketing to business, not consumers --- so you will have to slow things down, take your time to develop a conversation.

      I've had success by simply soliciting a referral for the decision maker there. Pretty straight forward: just ask who the best person is to answer your question about "x". For example, if I were marketing, say some accounting software for dentists that has some unique features that helps them handle past due accoutns, then I'd initially ask for a referral this way:
      "Hi,

      Who would be the best person there to ask a question about delinquent accounts?

      Thanks,
      Jim"

      Hello Stuart - that "elephant thing" works.

      I use a a dog. I didn't add it to my offer last week and didn't have many takers. One lady wrote back and asked, "where is the little pooch?
      I send a second email ... "sorry about my doggie. He is waiting for you now".

      Once you get your subscribers used to something, you need to continue doing it.

      Hi Dan - Depending on the niche, I always find 10-20 videos that can be added to my channel. For some niches you are going to find less. I created and intro and closing for each e-course using camtasia and add them to each video I edit. For those who don't have camtasia to create the intro, windows moviemaker or power point video templates like the ones sold on the wso forum will work just as well. Also, the youtube editor allows you to add text at the beginning and end of the videos.

    Hi uwa223,

    Thanks for the great post. May I ask you some questions.
    I didn't understand the model.

    Do you provide a link to the post in your email every day and if someone purchase the course they can download it immediately.

    Or do you send them all links to the posts at once?

    I missed that part. Sorry if this is a stupid question.

      Hello Ivantk - your questions are are fine and they will help me explain what I do much better.

      "Do you provide a link to the post in your email every day and if someone purchase the course they can download it immediately." This is correct.

      Or do you send them all links to the posts at once? No;they get the link to the posts or pages one day at at time. If the e-course is 10 day long, the subscribers will get one email per day for 10 days.

      They only see the post and pages I want them to see. Each page will have links to past pages. For example: the day 4 page will have links to page 1, 2, 3 in case they missed the email from previous days.

      Regards, Frank

        I also have a question.

        I know your ecourse is posted to private pages, but since you have subscribers opting in every day/week/month, I'm sure your entire course is already on your site when people are opting in, so when you give them the link to day 1, can't they just go to day 2, day 3, etc? Couldn't they figure out the links to the other pages right away, without having to wait? Is there something about private pages that I don't know?

        Or, how do you keep new subscribers from accessing the later days of the course if it is already posted to your blog?

        Thanks

          Hi Tony - Not many of my subscribers will ever find the post or pages ahead of time. For example - I would never name the page "mysite(dot)com/day1", etc. Each page is named differently and so far they have not been indexed by search engines. If someone finds the hidden pages and it makes their day, I'm happy for them. I don't worry as much as I used to about people finding my download page.

    Here is a question for you - Ladies & Gentlemen. You can thank me later. hahaha.

    What can the weight loss niche and your e-course (any e-course you can think of - kite flying, bird watching, dog training, make money online, getting your ex back, etc.) do for you?

    Here is the answer: "Make you a ton of money!!!"

    Here are some facts you need to know:
    -68.5% of your subscribers are overweight.
    -34.9% are obese.
    -6.4% are extremely obese.

    (*From the U.S. Prevalence of Adult Overweight and Obesity report - NHANES 2011-2012)

    Weight loss is what I call a universal niche. The same term applies to the make money online niche.
    There are two things most people on this planet want: (1) they want to look sverte and (2) they want to have money in their wallets.

    One of my dog training course subscribers was talking about her lazy and overweight husband. I closed my eyes for a moment and imagined all the money coming into my clickbank account thanks to her. Armed with the above facts, I posted my "how I lost 15 pounds in 30 day" story I wrote 5 years ago and within the hour, the green bar in my cb account started getting bigger and bigger. That post is available for every one who joins; and sales are coming in on a daily basis.

    It cannot get any better than this ----- My dog training course is selling weight loss products for me!
    Life is great!!

    Yeah, that's is absolutely correct. There are no untargeted visitors for the weight loss niche. And it will become even better in the next years.

    By the way, I am gonna try this method for gaining subscribers and selling products, it is simply great!

    I am also thinking what if I create several related courses and give an upsell offer to the subscribers to get all courses for XXX. You can also get creative by offering them the reseller rights for even better price.

    I think it is possible to cash a lot more form the same amount of subscribers that way.

      Hi Ivantk - Here are 2 things you need to do before you start your e-course/blogging adventure...

      1 - Read post #18 about the "adsense mentality". I created 15 blogs and e-courses; when all I needed was just one or - maybe - two. It took me 15 weeks to develop these blogs, e-courses, promo videos and slideshare presentation. If I would have built just one blog and used the other 14 weeks to work on it, I would probably be earning just as much - be less tire and have more free time to do other things. I did accomplish my goal of 10 subscribers per day per blog from free traffic.... but all this work took its toll and until a few days ago, I felt totally burned out.

      2. Go to google and enter "top earnings blogs - make money online blogging" and you will see that there are people earnings fabulous incomes with just one blog. Many are earnings over $100.000 a month. You can learn a lot by visiting and spending time studying these blogs. If you choose the right niche and work diligently and intelligently for the next six month, you could be earning a life changing income by then. It may not be as big as the $2,330,000 per month the owner of the Huffington Post is making, but $2,330.00 per week is not impossible.

        Thanks again! I know this for a fact, because during the yeas I've created many websites and only few were successful. But you never know what is successful and what is not until you created it.

        Paid traffic is a good way to test it fast and if it works continue working.

        I've started building my audience a month ago and I really liked your method for modernization. It is an honest method and your subscribers won't mind.

    Hey Frank. Epic post. Just a question about the facebook fan page and videos that you post on them. Do you use the fan page and go out and get likes with it or do you drive traffic to it. Just wondering with a new page and 0 likes how does it help your traffic? Maybe I just don't understand the fan pages. I know with youtube it will show up in searches. Not sure with facebook.

      Thanks John - I have many fans pages with lots of fans. By just posting a link on one of these pages, I can get 100s of fans for a new fan page. I also add the fan page link to each video description and slideshare profile. There are many ways to get likes for your fan page without spending a dime. If you do a search on youtube, your are going to find lots of of videos on how to get free traffic and likes for your fan page. Make sure to never use pay-for-likes websites or fiverr gigs. They are just a waste of time and money.

    Another question for you about list management Frank. I have lists colliding with lists and it drives me a little crazy sometimes. I just want to combine them all haha. When you have a new subscriber for a course do you have two lists for them one for the course and one for the freebie tuesday and bargain friday or is that part of your auto-responder messages.

      Hi John - I know the feeling. A few years ago I loaded my autoresponder with 52 newsletters; a short time later, the programs I was promoting decided no to continue the affiliate programs.

      With the e-courses, I don't have this problem. My follow ups are simple emails letting my subscribers know that the info they've been expecting is now available. If the e-course is about twitter marketing and twitter releases a new update, all I need to do is edit one or two blog pages - instead of a whole bunch of follow ups.

      I have two lists per e-course; freebies and buyers. When a subscribers buy immediate access to course or another one of my products, they get added to the buyers list and deleted from the freebie list. The autoresponder does this automatically.

      I have been thinking of discontinuing Freebie Tuesday as I'm already providing plenty of free info. Bargain Friday adds cash to my paypal acct every Friday. They are not part of the follow up sequence.

      I hope that I provided the answers you were seeking; if not, don't hesitate to make another post.
      Best Regards, Frank

      • Hi Frank

        Great thread you've started here. I'm a bit late to it but just spotted this comment you made a while back.

        " I know the feeling. A few years ago I loaded my autoresponder with 52 newsletters; a short time later, the programs I was promoting decided no to continue the affiliate programs."

        I've got a tip that I thought would be helpful. Although it would be expensive if you're promoting multiple products, it does work if you're only promoting a couple.

        Buy a cheap .info domain. You can get them from GoDaddy from about $1.99. You can also get their Baby Plan Hosting which allows you to host multiple domains for about $6.00 per month

        Have that domain re-direct to your affiliate link. (which is very simple to set up with any hosting provider in about 2 steps).

        For anyone reading this that doesn't know, you just go to "re-directs" in your hosting account.

        Choose the domain name you want to use.

        Where it says " re-direct to" ( or words to that effect) just enter in the whole url of your affiliate id i.e. youraffiliuateid.stopnoise.hop.clickbank.net/ReverseYourTinnitus!

        (Your full url affiliate ID would include the http://www. etc of course )

        So when your subscriber clicks they are re-routed via that domain name before hitting the page where your affiliate product is.

        If for any reason you can't/don't want to/find a better product to promote all you have to do is go into your hosting account and change the affiliate id you want it redirected to.

        Then all of your links in ALL of your content, whether it's on a blog, in a PDF, in an email message will automatically redirect to the new affiliate product.

        Saves loads of time trawling though all your content and changing links manually for every link.


        Thanks for all your valuable information

          Hello Debbie,
          Thank you so much for your tips and ideas.

          At the time of the 52 newsletters, I was promoting one of the hottest weight lost program on clickbank. The idea that they were going to discontinued the affiliate program never crossed my mind. Shortly after, I turned the 52 newsletters into an e-course and the results were much better.

          I use public and private blogs in all my list building methods. I never send leads directly to an affiliate offer as I'm not in this business to built the affiliate program owner's list. All my leads (paid or free) go through a sign up form and blog before they see an affiliate offer.

          As you said, buying .info domain is quite inexpensive - until you have to renew them. You can save yourself all that extra money by just buying one domain, building a blog and using a link cloaker plugin such as pretylinks to cloak your affiliate links.

          Having a blog is probably the easiest way for building a relationship - and keeping your subscriber engaged.

          A blog helps me keep all my follow up messages short; instead of writing those long email messages that can take a long time to write, I write a brief follow up message and send them a to a blog post where I would be able to add links to other offers (as I show in post #18).

          Having a niche blog to build your list is like killing two birds with one shot; (1) building your list (2)while building web asset.

          Once again, thanks for your post.
          Best Wishes,
          - Frank

          Great thread you've started here. I'm a bit late to it but just spotted this comment you made a while back.

          " I know the feeling. A few years ago I loaded my autoresponder with 52 newsletters; a short time later, the programs I was promoting decided no to continue the affiliate programs."

          I've got a tip that I thought would be helpful. Although it would be expensive if you're promoting multiple products, it does work if you're only promoting a couple.

          Buy a cheap .info domain. You can get them from GoDaddy from about $1.99. You can also get their Baby Plan Hosting which allows you to host multiple domains for about $6.00 per month

          Have that domain re-direct to your affiliate link. (which is very simple to set up with any hosting provider in about 2 steps).

          For anyone reading this that doesn't know, you just go to "re-directs" in your hosting account.

          Choose the domain name you want to use.

          Where it says " re-direct to" ( or words to that effect) just enter in the whole url of your affiliate id i.e. youraffiliuateid.stopnoise.hop.clickbank.net/ReverseYourTinnitus!

          (Your full url affiliate ID would include the http://www. etc of course )

          So when your subscriber clicks they are re-routed via that domain name before hitting the page where your affiliate product is.

          If for any reason you can't/don't want to/find a better product to promote all you have to do is go into your hosting account and change the affiliate id you want it redirected to.

          Then all of your links in ALL of your content, whether it's on a blog, in a PDF, in an email message will automatically redirect to the new affiliate product.

          Saves loads of time trawling though all your content and changing links manually for every link.

    No that answers my question. I'm happy to hear the frustration that others have also. Haha. I have been doing broadcast only lately and has been doing fairly well. Just trying to find a way to keep all subscribers in my list but be able to tag them maybe with AWProtools when they purchase something. That way I can exclude them on certain emails. I like your idea also. Gotta test the waters for a little while.

      Hello Raelyn - Please excuse me for taking so long to respond.

      I don't attach any images to my emails (but you can if you wanted to). The image of my dog is at the bottom of the sales letter - close to the product price).

      On the email messages, I use postscripts. Something like this ....

      "P.S. Don't forget to click on my doggie at the bottom of the page for a really nice surprise. You will not be disappointed!"

      I also use it on offers placed on the pages of the e-courses.....
      "Do I need to remind you to click on fido?"

      I have tested this by not adding it to some of my offers and people do write back asking, "Where is the doggie? Is there a discount?"

      Once you get your subscribers used to this and leave it out of an offer, they will contact you.

      Postscripts not only work great for sales pages, but they work great on email as well.

      A short email message with a postscript works for me almost every time. I leave the long stuff for the e-course pages.

      Raelyn.... My very best wishes to you.

      - Frank

    1. Thanks a million for sharing this info...which I may consider like a WSO package. I hope you get the reward for sharing.

    2. I have questions as well. After you completed let's say 7 days of e course, what happen to your list? Will you after that broadcast promotions or continue creating other ecourse?

    3. Another question is related to post #48. I don't quite get it. Do you mean that you offer your exisiting list something else like weight lost to build a new niche list? Which means from MMO to weight lost? Hope you can please enlighten me on this.

    Thanks a lot again. Can't wait for new update from you.

      Hi Alzack,
      What I do after the 7 days over - or however long the course is - is to continue providing valuable information to my subscribers. For my dog training e-course, I can go on posting good content for many years to come. I have a hard-drive full e-books on dog training and maybe about 1500 articles on the subject as well; thus, I have more than enough content to keep my subscriber happy for many years into the future. When I need content, I 'll take an e-book and go through it and if I find something interesting, I would consider adding the info to the member's area. I just don't add it as is; I make changes to it; I make the info more personal. If I'm not sure the info is correct, I search for reliable sources. My subscribers have labeled me an expert and that labeling is keeping my paypal, clickbank and amazon acct quite busy.

      About post #48 - Although, I have an e-course on weight loss, I have never shared it with the people who joined my dog training blog. You could if you want to, but for now, I won't.

      When one of my subscribers opened the door for me by telling the group how lazy and fat her husband was getting, I jumped on the opportunity and shared my weight loss success story with the group. I posted my story and linked it to an expensive clickbank product with a very low refund rate. That post is still making sales on a daily basis - and it has nothing to do with training fido. But there are statistics that say that about 70% of the population is overweight - which means that 70% of my dog loving subscribers need to lose a few pounds as well. My clickbank account is showing me that my assumptions were correct.

      Thanks for your questions,
      Frank

          Hi Alzack,
          I have nothing against solo ads sellers, but I wouldn't do it myself; no matter how much extra money I could make at the end of the month.

          The things that I'm sharing here with you, are things that I've learned over the years from being on several lists that had 200,000-300,000+ subscribers - not from the guys ad swapping or solo mailing me to death. These big list owners kept their promises and never exchanged my information with others. And because they kept their promises, I trusted them and continued buying products from them for a very long time. These are the people who would send an email on a Friday and end up with $30k in their Paypal accts that same day.

          When I tell my subscribers that I will not share their info, I keep that promise.

          My family, my friends and the people who join my list trust me because they know that.....

          "My WORD is my BOND."

      Hi Javisito,
      Like I said on the post above, I don't do solo ads - but have nothing against those that earn their money that way.

      If you do things right, you will not have to do solo ads with this list. Once you get this type of list building in motion, you will get a plenty of sales from your members area without sending any emails.

      I would suggest that you keep your solo blast list and the e-course list separate.

      Have a wonderful day,
      Frank

        With a few exceptions, we've found Tuesday to be the best day for sales. Not entirely sure why. Might be worth a test to swap the freebie with the bargain...

        BTW Love the story.

          Hey Terry,
          I think bargain Friday had something to do with fact that Friday is payday in most places. Saturday - Tuesday are my most profitable days when it comes to clickbank products.

    About a week or two ago.... I said that I would share a case study, but what I'm about to share with you today, cannot be qualified as a case study. I'm going to call it a feel-good-story. I think I told you guys how I love telling stories.... right? Here's another one.

    About two months ago, I overheard my neighbor telling his wife to stop feeding the strait cats from the neighborhood because she was spending money that could be used on something more important. She has been married to this grouch for over 40 years and probably has not enjoyed a full day of happiness during those 40 years. Feeding these cats is about the only thing she enjoys in life and now the grouch wanted to end that as well. I felt the need to do something about that; because I also like cats. They say that owning a pet will extend your life by many years.

    I asked her if I could help her feed the cats since I also was a cat lover myself and she promptly agreed. That very same day, I went to the store bough two large bags of purina cat chow and several toys and these homeless cats are now happier than ever!

    She's always snapping pics of the cats with her cell phone and sharing them with her family. I told her that it would be easier to share her photos with everyone if she had a facebook acct. She said that all her kids and grandchildren were on facebook, but that the "grouch" thought it was a waste of time. I told her that I would help her set up an acct in a few minutes and all she had to do was spend a few minutes a day sharing her pics and staying in touch with her friends and family. I helped set up her profile and showed her how to upload photos and search for friends and family. A week later I looked at her profile and her list of friends had grown to over 200! Her photos of cats were bringing lots of visitors and requests

    She didn't know it just yet, but she was on the way to earning a nice monthly income - for doing something she loved doing. To get her started I said, "do you know that there is a way for you to get your cat food for free?" and she responded, "Frank, I hope you are not trying to recruit me into another mlm deal." I assured her that it had nothing to do with mlm and that within a month or two, she would be earning several hundred dollars per month. The "grouch didn't like the idea, but we went ahead anyway.

    We created a fb group and a fan page first. A day later, we bought a domain and set up two blogs - one public and the other private. The auto responder would come later since she was building a list of fans and group members on FB already. I showed her how to join other groups and fan pages. She posted valuable info and photos on these groups' walls and started getting others to join her group and fan page. Her group has over3000 menbers and her fan page is getting 50-100 likes per day from people who enjoy her stories and tips.

    After two weeks of getting sick from hearing the grouch complaining all day long, the first sale came in from a cb product that pays about $17 commission. This set her on fire! a week later, she had 2 back-to-back $100 day - $101 from clcikbank and $127 from amazon. I almost fell of the chair when she asked if she could switch the name of the accounts to her husband's name because when they got married, he told her that she no longer needed a bank account of her own. I told her it was too late and that she would have to open an account of her very own.

    To end this story before it gets any longer.... this past month she earned over $800 from amazon, cb and from an ebook she is selling for $7. And now she has several hundred fans waiting for her next ebook - after she posted on her group and fan page wall, "how I'm earning $800 a month from home doing something I really love and enjoy". And to think that 60 days ago, she didn't know anything about fb, forums or making money online.

    What about you? What's your story?

      Great story, great sharing. This case study alone can be valuable since it may contain some specific step by step approach. Hope there is a more detail story of this case study.

      You are very kind to help her Frank.

    Frank.... What can I say?

    This is PURE GOLD.

    And giving all this away for free? You are truly THE MAN!!

    Thanks for this one, its given me some ideas I'll be implementing right away and tracking the results. This adds more value than probably 80-90% of any list building WSO that's been released here...

    And I gotta thank Phill Wess for posting the link to this thread up on FB or I would have skipped right over it (hell, I did already for the last few weeks since you posted it!)

    Thanks again man, appreciate you sharing your experiences with all of us!

        This is great advice for someone like me who has never started a list before, thank you verymuch for sharing and no wonder you have a lot of subscribers if this is the info you give away!

        A few questions when you get a moment...

        1) I am starting my first list. Would you recommend giving away a high quality PLR product with some tweaks or a brand new made fro scratch information product? Want to start off the right way and not look like a jerk giving away crap or old outdated content and I do have money to spend on this if necessary.

        2) I see above in your e-mail example you address them by name, do you actually type out your e-mails or does the auto-responder service plug in their name?

        3) How many hours per day on average would you say you spend on engaging your list and adding/creating content? I work a FT good paying job but would like to get a steady extra income stream going and PPC/PPV did not work well for me, I just didn't have time for all the split testing.

        4) Since you are using e-mails and blogs do you use tracking? Since their are no landing pages or squeeze pages is there anything to track other than your website traffic?
        {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[9502141].message }}

          Hello DreamTFK - below are the answers to your questions.

          1) I use a high-quality plr product and update it or make changes to it as I post the pages (as explained in post #1). If you are good at writing, then you can write your own material, but I prefer to do some testing before using my time to write a product from scratch. You can use the product you create as an upsell to the product you are giving away. I always improve the quality of my plr products by adding graphics and rewriting headlines, introduction, and adding a summary at the end.

          2) The auto responder takes care of this when you request their name on the signup form.

          3) I usually work 4 hours - more or less - per day on the e-courses. I do have an assistant that is doing most of the work these days. I like the e-courses because it is one of the best and easiest ways to build a relationship with your subscribers; keep them engaged.

          4) I do use a squeeze pages and landing pages to get people to sign up for the e-course; I could be doing more tracking , but mostly use the tracking provided by the autoresponder and hosting.

          I'm glad you like the thread and thanks for the nice words.
          - Frank

    Hey Frank,

    your post really was literally mind blowing. I had just written the whole strategy for my new website and after reading that post wiped the whole structure and notes from the whiteboard. You gave me that final touch on how to combine website + membership (free) + autoresponder sequence.

    I haven't tried it yet, but the strategy makes perfect sense and actually works (for you, and I'm sure for many others)

    So thank you again for sharing all that value selflessly.

    Best luck,

    Phill

    Selecting the right e-course when getting started.

    You need to choose something that your subscribers and fans will be happy to share with others. If your e-course is about curing yeast infection or herpes, you are not going to find too many people willing to share this information with their friends; I make good money promoting these types of products using pay per clicks, but you will never find me sharing or liking fb pages or groups having anything to do with these health issues. If you do, it's almost like admitting that you are infected. Not me! No siree!

    The same applies to the make money online opportunities. People will not share your fan page or posts with their friends on facebook. I guess they are afraid of what their friends would think. If you were to create a fan page on this niche, it's not going to be easy to get fans as you will have to get most of the fans yourself.

    Here are 3 things I do before launching an e-course -
    1 - I search the clickbank marketplace for a niche or product that people wouldn't mind liking or sharing on facebook. As and example we will search the self-help category; We like the law of attraction niche.
    2 - We go to facebook and search "law of attraction" and see that there are pages that have hundreds of thousands - even millions - of fans. I'm willing to bet that most of these fans were referred by others. The owners did some work at the beginning and then these pages went viral.
    3 - I look for a good plr product on the subject and rewrite it as I create the blog pages. I find that rewriting is easier for me as I post the article or chapter. I also like to do it in the morning when my mind is rested.

    It is that simple.

    Hi Frank, Great post that really does give an excellent model to implement. I have been doing a number of experiments and coming to the same conclusions. You have short cut my journey by more then 12 months of further trial and error I would guess. Thanks again!

      I'm glad you have found this thread helpful. There are not too many shortcuts to making money online; building a list is one of the few available. There is nothing better than being able to send an email and see the money coming into your account a short time later.

      For me this is a 3 year plan. I do not see this as a way for making money fast; I see it as shortcut to an early retirement; a condo or house by the sea.

      Here is a perfect example of how much people are willing to pay for these blogs once they are established.......

      On May 9, 2005, Arianna Huffington launched the Huffington Post, a news aggregator blog. At first the content were rss news feeds and copying and pasting articles from online newspaper and magazine - nothing original.

      On February 05, 2011, AOL wanted her blog and was willing to pay over $300,000,000 - 315 millions to be exact. It all got started with an inexpensive domain, hosting and some rss feeds from news sources - and six year later, she sold what she started for about the cost of dinner for two for 315 millions!

      A few weeks ago, a good friend needed money and sold 3 of her blogs to a private buyer for over $90,000. She created these blogs about a year or so ago and together they earned her less than $3000 per months. The person who bought them was willing to pay 30 times more than these blogs were earning.

    Fantastic post. The forum needs more of this. Here are some followup questions for you:

    1) Are you using upsells/downsells after your sales?

    2) Are you offering any type of coaching or high ticket items deeper into your relationship?

    3) You mentioned you have 15 e-courses and each one has it's own unique Fanpage, YouTube, Slideshare, domain, etc. I'm curious why you're approaching it from this angle instead of building one universal brand/domain with the landing pages located in sub-directories or WordPress pages. Is it for SEO? It seems like it's more work building these e-courses from scratch each time.

      Thank you Jesus -
      I pretty much follow the same procedures I posted here with all my list building strategies.

      I never send subscribers to an offer as soon as they opt in. I do have one or two offers on the download page. If the free offers is about facebook ads, I will have an e-book for $9.95 and HD video course for $27.00 - both offers are related to the free offer.

      I make sure that what I offer free is of high quality. I usually give away the best chapter of my ebook or the best video of my video course. Right below the download links, I tell them, "if you liked this video, you can get the rest of the course by clicking here. etc."

      At this time, I'm not offering any coaching. I spend most of my time traveling and don't have the time to set up a coaching program. Most of the product I sell are in the $9.95 to $97.00 range. I rarely get any refund requests as I don't make absurd income promises. My product would not do well on forums as my headline would not be found attractive by most members. This is what sells on most forum..... "Make $10,000 a month working just 10 minutes a day - no website or list needed." These sellers are telling the buyers what they want to hear: Make big money overnight without having to do any work. People just love to be told that they don't have to build a website to make big money online.

      I have 15 e-courses - soon to be 13 as I'm exchanging two of them for a 1974 Corvette T-Tops. I had the same model in NYC back in 1987 and really enjoyed driving that car. My neighbor and his wife are getting my golf and gardening blogs and I'm getting the corvette he wanted to sell me for $35,000. The blogs will keep them busy and making a nice monthly income for doing something they love. She has one the most beautiful garden I have ever seen and he gives golf lessons to seniors.

      I used separate domains because I plan to sell these blogs in 2-3 years. Once the initial set up is done the rest is much easier. I have a local girl working part-time for me. It only takes a few hours per day to to update the blogs, answer questions and post new offers.

      I hope I answered all your questions,
      Frank

    Another success story ---
    Another friend started a blog about the 15 best places to visit while on vacation in her country. Most of her earnings come from charging hotel and resort owners for being on the top 15 list. Her blog is very popular and she is making about $30K a month from it. The resort at the top of the list is paying her $5,000 a month to stay there. This blog is worth over $250,000 today; but she will not sell it. She started it about 3 years ago; invested about $30 for domain and hosting the first year; all the images she used at first came from public domain sources.

    Monetizing your blog -
    One of the best ways to monetize blogs is by creating product rank lists; such as:
    "10 best rated tablets", "3 top selling cell phones". best mountain bikes", "5 best microwave ovens", best rated washing machines", etc.

    You are taught to use the name of the product as your title, but most people are not searching for product names when on google. If they are looking to buy a camera, they will enter something like "best rated digital camera" - rarely would you see someone searching for "Nikon D3200 24.2 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera Review".

    Just about all of my blogs make me money from these rank lists. The best thing is that I'm not even reviewing these products. I do a brief description of each product - consisting of 100 to 150 words per product - which I take from the product's sales page.

    This is one of the easiest way to make money from your blog

    Thanks, Frank. More questions if you don't mind. I'm trying to fill in the gaps.

    You mentioned:

    Recently, I started buying bookmarking and blog posting gigs from the Warriors For Hire forum and this has greatly increased my traffic and opt ins.
    Care to share any of the bookmark or blog posting providers? It's hard to find good ones. Also, are you linking straight to your blog, or to your YouTube, Facebook and Slideshare properties?

    Do you feel you could pull off your traffic strategy without Facebook and only SlideShare and YouTube?

    What's your FB posting strategy like (besides uploading the videos)?

    After the 35/35/35 are submitted in the first week, what does your maintenance schedule look like? It sounds like you're uploading daily to YouTube but what about the others?

    The YouTube Creative Commons part threw me off a bit. Can you expand on that? I understand what CC is, I just don't understand how you're using it in YouTube to expand your business.

      Hello Jesus - I stay away from recommending seo service providers on forums. You should do a search for the services you want on the Warriors for hire forum; bookmarking, blog posting, etc. There is one gentleman that I'm going to be buying seo services from in the near future. His user name is GyuMan82 and his thread has over 70 pages of comments and reorders. Reading his opening post and the last few pages of his thread will help you make a wise decision. Once again, I'm not endorsing any seo service providers. I'm just giving you a name - the rest is up to you.

      On facebook - I think every business should have a page. I have not spent any money on fb ads for my e-courses, but I'm getting a good amount of traffic to my landing pages; mostly from subscribers sharing my e-courses with friends and family. You can create a fb page, add a few posts and images to it in less than 20 minutes. I get a lot of traffic from my youtube channels and slideshare presentations. By listing my fb page on these properties, I'm getting lots of visitors to my fb pages. I use a like gateway as my fb landing page.

      After the initial work is accomplished - maintaining these blogs and properties is keeping me busy for at least 4-6 hours per day. You can do a lot in 4 hours if you concentrate on what needs to be done. During those 4 hours, I let the answering machine answer calls, I do not check my emails or get on fb to see what my friends are up to. It's all about accomplishing my daily goals. The same applies to the young lady who works with me. We switch jobs on a daily basis. One day I work on fb and youtube and she would works on the public and private blogs.

      On fb, you must keep people engaged. We spend about 15 minutes per page each day; answering questions, thanking fans for their comments and posting something of interest. On youtube, I upload 1 video per week to each channel, thanks people fro their comments and remove spams.

      Below is a video tutorial for using youtube's creative commons. Since this video was made, youtube has made some changes to their menu and interface.

      To get to the creative commons area, you need to log into your account. Click on "Upload" and then on "Video Editor" to access the creative commons videos.

      The video below is not mine, but I'm sure you will find it helpful. Do a search on how to use creatives common videos as there are plenty of tutorials on the subject.

      You mentioned:



      Care to share any of the bookmark or blog posting providers? It's hard to find good ones. Also, are you linking straight to your blog, or to your YouTube, Facebook and Slideshare properties?

      Do you feel you could pull off your traffic strategy without Facebook and only SlideShare and YouTube?

      What's your FB posting strategy like (besides uploading the videos)?

      After the 35/35/35 are submitted in the first week, what does your maintenance schedule look like? It sounds like you're uploading daily to YouTube but what about the others?

      The YouTube Creative Commons part threw me off a bit. Can you expand on that? I understand what CC is, I just don't understand how you're using it in YouTube to expand your business.

    Hey Frank,

    Cool thread and super info you've shared.

    When you have your bargain day every week how do you seek out these -10$ offers? Do you contact vendors and ask for a discount for your list or do you offer a product you own every week at a discount?

    Also these videos you upload every week are they powerpoint recordings with info or do you go out and shoot videos on how to train your dog, grow the most beautiful roses, perfect your golf swing...?

    Thanks in advance and love this thread you started, you provide more free value then what is sold on most BS wso's, just my 0,02$

      Hey Liquid Ice,
      On a post above I stated that I work 4-6 hours per day on these blogs, but these hours are spent on maintaining them only. I do spend more hours per week preparing offers, specially for blogs that have to do with online marketing. I buy the rights to resell products that offer good values. I don't mind spending $50 to $100 purchasing the resell rights to a products that can make me money for the long term. I also use high-quality plr products. I'm not talking about crappy plr products here; These plrs are of great quality and just one of them can keep your business going for several years.

      For blogs that are not about Internet marketing, I use mainly resell rights products as my offers. I also rely a great deal on products sold on amazon. If my blogs is about "best places to enjoy a nice vacation", I would sent emails about cameras, sun glasses, things that people might need while on vacation. These blogs would also have posts or pages such as "5 best digital cameras", "best cell phones and tablets to take with you while traveling". etc.

      My video are mostly powerpoint presentations with inserts from other videos. I edit videos from youtube creative commons that are related to my blogs. After I'm done editing these videos, they really look good. I have an intro and a call to action for each of the e-courses that I use when editing these videos.

      There is a video on one of my post above that can show how to do these things.

      Thanks kind words,
      Frank

    Hi Sandytuff. I'm glad you like what I'm sharing. I don't mind sharing what I know and what's working for me. But as I stated on the first post, I'm not here trying to get people to optin to my list or to buy something from me; therefore, I will not be sharing any links to my blogs or fan pages on this thread.

    I'm getting questions by pm on posts # 107 and 108 and decided to answer them here.

    1 - In your success story example of the 15 best places to visit while on vacation in her country, how many pages does the blog have to get $30k per month?
    At first, she only had a few pages as the blog was not originally set up to cater to hotels and resorts owners; most of the pages were added after the second year; now it has hundreds of posts, pages and comments from people that stayed at the places she recommends.

    2 - Is there a large email component to the blog or is it mainly just the blog?
    She does have a nice size email list as she is giving away a free report and tips.

    3 - Is your friend with the travel blog selling an e-book or promoting affiliate programs?
    Like many marketers, she set up her blog thinking she was going to get rich selling a $7.00 e-book; when she didn't strike it rich with her ebook, she started promoting travel affiliate programs, but that didn't work either. She thought about not renewing the domain after the first year, but I convinced her to give it one more year; that I was going to help her earn a good yearly income from it.

    4 - How does she get her offline customers?
    I got her the first 5 customers; people who owned bed & breakfast and hotels that had less than 20 rooms or suites. I had stayed at these places on many occasions and most of the times, more than 2/3 of the rooms were empty. When I told them that I knew someone that could help them make an extra $5K-$10k a month for about $500 per month to cover ads feeds and other expenses, 5 of them send her the money a few days later.

    4 - Are you willing to give an example of the type of blog it is?
    As stated above, it's wp blog recommending cities, hotels and resorts.

    5 - Is she paying for traffic to the blog?
    Yes, she spent from $5k-$10K a month on press releases and fb ads.

    6 - With the blogs that were sold for $90k what made them worth 30 times their monthly rather than 10 times monthly incomes?
    She was not doing a good job of monetizing her blogs and I told her so. I made some suggestions, but she wouldn't listen. The person who purchased these blogs saw the potential to make much more than she was making.

    So Frank, how did you stumble upon this concept? Was it through testing ecourses vs ebooks? Or did you observe and mirror someone else's success?

    Also, when posting to SlideShare and YouTube, I suspect you're capitalizing on keywords. How do you find them and decide on the best ones to use?

      Hello Jesus - I chose e-courses over e-book as giveaways because I wanted to create web assets while building my list. The e-courses has helped me to accomplish both of these goals; plus, it has made it easier for me to build an engaging and long-lasting relationship with my subscribers - without spending most of the week writing long and tedious follow up messages.

      As for keywords - I use the google planner tool for keywords ideas. I also use ubersuggest.org, a free keyword suggestion tool. I prefer long tail keywords that are getting at least 1,000 exact searches per month.
      Best Regards, Frank

      Hi Gedeon - Thank you for your kind words,
      It seems like traffic is coming from everywhere these days.
      I do get a good amount of traffic - about 25% - from social bookmarking sites and blog posting. Youtube and slideshare have always been great for getting traffic to blogs. Facebook started slowly since I was not buying ads; but now I get a good amount of traffic from them due to my subscribers sharing my landing pages and blogs with their friends.

      I was not expecting much from google, but recently I have been getting traffic from them as well.

      Have a nice day, Frank

      P.S. I do spend about $25 per month per site for backlinking and traffic (mainly social bookmarking and blog posting.

    From a beginner to list building (who is struggling a little bit) I want to truly thank you for this great post. This gives me some insight and ideas to switch up the whole free ebook or report deal as I have watched what you explain happen. Get their gift... Log out...

    I have a question about follow-ups, as I am not a copywriter. What would you say is the best way to start forming a relationship through a follow up sequence? Everything that I have tried has just gone unopened.

    Thanks,

      HI Jeff - Establishing a good relationship with your subscribers starts with the product you are giving away in exchange for their email addresses. It needs to be of high quality. A lousy product will get you lousy results. If the initial product you use to start building your list is something that doesn't provide good value, you are not going to get many - if any - of your follow up messages read.

      There can be so many factors as to why your emails are not getting open. You need to analyze your list building strategies from beginning to end..

      You can start by asking yourself these questions ....
      "If I was the subscriber instead of the list owner, would I be satisfied with what I'm are getting for subscribing?"
      Am I delivering what I have initially promised on my squeeze page?
      Am I sending too many offers or too messages to these people?
      If you don't like the answers your getting, then you need to make the necessary changes.

      I would also suggest that you take time to improve your copywriting as it can be the difference between success and failure in list building / online marketing.

      Best Wishes, Frank

        Hi Frank,

        1. May I ask which salesletter formula (ex. AIDA) do you use to promote 'immediate' access to all e course pages (as oppose to your list just waiting for them via e mail)?

          Hi - I keep things simple. You don't need a long sales letter when you are offering a free course.

          I send all traffic to a squeeze page - this page includes a powerful headline and a list of benefits and results they will receive by joining the course.

          Not so long ago, I added a public blog to increase the value of each course.

              Thanks for posting all this Frank, you are a rockstar, someone down to earth, showing what he does, without trying to sell anything in between.

              I learned a few important things from you that will be very useful for my projects that are under development right now, especially as I wanted to give away free ecourses it's an excellent idea to spread that over 10 days.

              I like the doggie / elephant thing as well, though I won't be selling any informational products as I have my own products and services to sell, the guides are just the move in the right direction and once they seriously want to get started I offer all they need.

              I've seen creative common video's last night for the first time but I had no idea what they are for, now I learned from you anyone can use them, I searched my niche right away though no luck as it was a hell boring video with his website name mentioned many times, but well that niche is a very specific product so not too surprising, more surprised I could even find one on the topic so that means there are a LOT of such video's out there.

              Big thanks, you're making my life a lot easier now that I have a robust plan to go with!

    Is the strategy will be helpful for a soccer news website?
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[9444925].message }}
    • Profile picture of the author uwa223
      Hello Mike -
      None of my e-courses are on sports; thus, I cannot predict how this strategy would work for a soccer news site; but if you make the right offers to your visitors, they will subscribe. Since you love soccer so much, perhaps you can develop a good monthly newsletter for your subscribers.

      A few years back, I was selling sports tickets online and wanted to give away books or reports to bring customers to the site; the only plr book I found on soccer was "Soccer Fitness", which had to do with getting in shape or becoming soccer fit. I looked a few minutes ago and it's still available on some of the plr sites. Maybe you can improve this book and use it as your giveaway.

      If you are looking to rank for "soccer news", it might be a bit difficult. Unless you are there already, it might be hard to get on page one of google as the page is dominated by channels such as espn, nbc, national and international newspapers and magazines. But your site can still be a huge success - even if you don't rank within the first 10 pages. I, for one, don't worry much about ranking on page one as I don't rely on google for my traffic.

      Wishing you great success with your soccer news site,
      Frank

      1. The home page is too crowded. Look at other magazines or newspapers and see how their home pages are structured and redo yours. I would leave some ad space for Google Adsense.
      2. Your domain trafficnews.ec and main keyword, "traffic news", do not reflect the content on your site. When people search for "traffic news", they expect to find news about ground or local traffic, not a site on tourism and air traffic. Your main keyword gets 200,000 searches per month, but these people are not finding what they are searching for on your website.
      3. your other 2 keywords, which are related to your content, "noticias de turismos" and "noticias turisticas" are only getting 2900 and 880 searches per month. That's not enough.

      I suggest that you make your home page less crowded, get a better domain name and better keywords to help build a targeted list and get this website moving in the right direction.

      Another suggestions.... Build yourself a website about news in Colombia Venezuela and Ecuador and in 5 years you will be a millionaire. Two sites that were build a few years ago, Lapatilla.com and Dolartoday.com are each worth well over a millions dollar today.

      Noticias24.com was purchased by the venezuelan government because it was printing news against chavez. The word is that noticias24 sold for over $10 million dollars. It was started from home by a husband and and wife team for the cost of a domain name. The site lost have of its visitors in the last 3 years, but are still getting over 3 million unique visitors per month.
      Buena Suerte,
      Frank

      Hi Lukeguy - Thank you so much.

      I share a Netflix account with my son and all I hear all day is - "Dad, I cannot believe you watched that movie." After I gave "the creature from the black lagoon" 5 stars and it showed on his Facebook profile, he just couldn't take it anymore. The next day he separated the accounts.

    I have been receiving pm's with questions and I'm going to answer them here and share the answers with everyone.

    -- What are your plans for these sites?
    The plan is to sell everything in 3 years. It would be best if I could sell everything to one person. Two people I know sold their 5 blogs to 1 buyer 2 years ago for around $750k - then they went back to build some more blogs and now are ready once again for a huge payday - yes - once again!

    How much are you planning to sell them for?
    The final value will probably be based on the size of the list, the number of fan on fb, traffic and earnings.

    Are you using other list building strategies?
    Yes. I went back to this style of list building | e-courses around December of last year; but I have many squeeze pages that giveaway reports. These reports are not the "make $100 per day" types. I prefer to give away helpful info, my report might be something like "How to get an extra 100 visitors per day to your site - in 15 minutes or less per day". This report would tell them about bookmarking for traffic and provide a list of good bookmarking sites. I find that people appreciate this more than reports promising $100.s per day.

    Are they directed to an offer right after subscribing?
    No. After they opt in, they will be sent to a download page where I will have related offers. I never send them directly to an offer right after they've subscribed. But you don't have to do as I do. I just don't think that leading them to an offer right after signing up would be appreciated by your subscriber. I want to keep my subscribers for the long term.

    Is this the best way to build a relationship with your list?
    The main purpose of this strategy is not only to build a relationship with my subscribers; it is also to build web assets - web real estate - which I can sell for a great deal of money a few years later.

    People are getting rich selling established sites; you don't read about these people on flippa or on this forum. Some people are flipping sites right after building them, but if they waited 3 months, the same site could sell for 5-10 more money - and after 3 years, the same site can pay for a brand new car and/or a down payment on a house.

      Hey Frank,

      So these people you know all sold their sites privately? Never through Flippa or other action sites? Do they contact brokers or how do they find these buyers?

      Also the link to "the bucket brigade" on docstoc is only downloadable if you pay for a membership with them, is there another way you can share it?

      Thanks in advance,

        Hi Liquid Ice. I have only been able to sell a few sites I listed on Flippa. Some of the offers I received from buyers were ridiculously low. It seems like site buyers on flippa are looking for desperate sellers. If a site is making me good money, I'll keep it until I find a buyer who's willing to pay or come real close to my price.

        I sold many of my sites through brokers. I also sold some to my subscribers who liked the idea of blogging for money.

        About the Bucket Brigade ... I have a copy somewhere and if and when I find it, I will make it available. I was a member of docstoc at one time, but let my membership lapse. I recently read the entire 16 pages on docstoc without the need to becoming a member. You can click on "full screen" at the top of the document to make it easier on the eyes. I think the link to the Bucket Brigade is available on post #154.

        Best Regards, Frank

        The JVZoo marketplace and the Warrior Special offer forum are great places to search for plr products.

        I do not use videos for the e-courses. I use text and graphics and upsell the videos as an upgrade.

    Hi Frank,

    First of all thank you very much for the post you created and for your answer on follow up questions.

    This thread is a gold mine.

    Given that delivery is very important to you, out of curiosity which auto responder you use? And what do you use to accept payments (the ones to get access to full course right away)?

    Thank you again,

      Hi - I started with Aweber and I'm still using them. I also like GetResponse. I would never use the so-called free autoresponders - free can be very expensive - sooner than later.

      As far as taking payments, I had several merchant accts, but have been using paypal since they came into the marketplace.

      Thanks for the nice words,
      Frank

    Improving your copywriting skills -
    In 2004, for the first time in my life, I wrote a very long sales letter. My sister (my proof reader at the time) told me that no one was going to read the entire letter because it was long and boring; and she was right. I was selling a good product for $47, but the sales copy didn't help. I was getting several thousands unique visitors per month and decided to reduced the price to $7, but even at $7, I was only making one or two sales per month.

    A few years later, I came across an e-book that changed the way I wrote sales letters, newsletters, articles and email follow ups forever. I went back to the "long and boring" sales letter and added some of the techniques I'd learned from the e-book and asked my sister to read it again. An hour later, she called and told me that this was the best marketing material she had ever read from me and suggested for me to raise the price back to $47 because I was going to get lots of sales this time; and she was right, as I went from making 1-2 $7 sales per month to 2-3 $47 sales per day.

    Today, I'm going to share with you the e-book and the simple techniques that took my copywriting to the next level.

    The name of this ebook is - "The Bucket Brigade", by Derek Pankaew. You can get a free copy of what was a life-changing information for me by clicking on or searching for the title below. Enjoy, Frank

    Hi Frank,
    Thank you for the great tips. i have a question :
    1-How do you know which subscriber bought the whole e-course so you can not send him again the sequence emails after that ?

    2-Let say i send 100 people to my squeeze page for a free eBook, 40% of them sign up and from that 40 people 20% buy my main product which related to the free eBook.

    so Now, i have : 40 emails and 8 buyers. i want to send sequence emails to those 32 non buyers via 3 emails to convince them to buy .

    My Question: how do i know from my auto-responder provider (i have Mailchimp) those 32 people ? i don't want to send these 3 emails to the 8 buyers since the list will have 40 subscribers .

    Thanks

      Hi - I have never used Mailchimp; thus, I cannot help you automate things with them.

      I use Aweber and Getresponse. With them, you can set automation rule to unsubscribe people from a prospect list when they purchase a product and sign up to a customers list.

      #1 - This can be done automatically by creating another list and setting the rules for Aweber to add the buyer to the new list and delete them from the freebie list. Once they are removed from the freebie list, that email sequence will stop. If you have created email follow ups for your buyers list, they will automatically start getting those.

      #2 - By now you will have two lists - a freebie and a buyers list. Your freebie list will have 32 prospects that will continue to receive that particular list email sequence. The buyers list will have 8 new people.

      Best Wishes, Frank

    Outliving Your Competitors.
    In Spanish there's a saying that goes .... "Siéntate a la puerta de tu casa y verás el cadáver de tu enemigo pasar." Translated to English means..... "Sit at the door of your house and see the corpse of your enemy pass."

    This saying also applies - quite nicely - to internet marketing. If you keep your website long enough, you will see most of your competitors' websites died or disappear. It is a fact that a very high number - over 90% I would say - of all marketers will not renew a domain after the first year.

    How do I know this? Because I was 1 of the 90% - but only for a short time, thank goodness. A few years ago, I decided to build some niche blogs using plr articles as content - I built 10 blogs to be exact. Most of the plr articles came from the wso forum. In most cases, I was the first one to have the articles indexed as I didn't wait around for the competition to get a head start.

    After a few weeks. I did a search on google to see how many people were using these articles and found only a few sites using them. 3 month later, there were around 40 sites using the same articles. A year later, 2/3 of those sites were gone. After two years, another bunch disappeared. Another year went by and there were only 3 sites sharing the same content.

    I now have seven sites with unique content and great domains. These sites are making sales for me - anywhere from $100-$400 per month each. The only thing I have done to these sites since I built them is to upgrade wp and updates the plugins. That's it!

    These sites are worth a nice chunk of change right now; great domain names, great content and making sales; talk about building web real estate!

    Knowing that Spanish saying ...... "Siéntate a la puerta de tu casa y verás el cadáver de tu enemigo pasar." .... helped me outlive the competition and built web asset.

    What about you? Are you going to have the patience to give your business time to develop or are you going to start a new one every other day - for the rest of your life?

    Best Wishes.

      Do you do much in the way of keyword research prior to deciding on the topics for your videos, blog posts or slideshares? What kind of figures are you looking at with regards to search volume and competition etc? Do you look at these things before doing the social bookmarking etc?

      You mentioned in a very early comment that you started an affiliate program in the 80's, are you going to share any more information or stories on that at all?

        Hi - No one hates doing keyword research more than me, but it needs to be done. And since I hate it so much, I keep it simple. I usually pick 10-15 keywords per niche.

        I don't worry much about competition or ranking as I don't depend on google for traffic.

        I posted this on an earlier post.....
        "I use the google planner tool for keywords ideas. I also use ubersuggest.org, a free keyword suggestion tool. I prefer long tail keywords that are getting at least 1,000 exact searches per month."

        About my offline affiliate programs in the 80's and 90's; it's a long story, but I promise to cover it on a later post.

        Best Wishes.

      It's in the original post, front page.

      "** On day 1, I tell my subscribers how important it is for them to stick with the e-course 'til the very end; they get an introduction to the course; my promise to them; what to expect over the next few days, etc. Day 1 is basically a sales or presell letter to the course. It works great! Sometimes, I get emails asking if they can buy the entire course right after they have read Day 1."
      It sounds like he sends them to his private blog to read this message after confirming their email.

When I give them the option to buy on day 3, I also offer a bonus that is sometime better than the actual e-course.

      "** On day 1, I tell my subscribers how important it is for them to stick with the e-course 'til the very end; they get an introduction to the course; my promise to them; what to expect over the next few days, etc. Day 1 is basically a sales or presell letter to the course. It works great! Sometimes, I get emails asking if they can buy the entire course right after they have read Day 1."

      I have a question
      1. What do you send them when they optin to your list? Like you said if you send a freebie/report most probably they will get it and optout. You also said they optin and you email them after 3 days. If they won't get anything they will optout. please elaborate.

      Thanks.

        Hi Frank

        You explained in Post #110

        "I'm not offering any coaching. I spend most of my time traveling and don't have the time to set up a coaching program. Most of the product I sell are in the $9.95 to $97.00 range. I rarely get any refund requests as I don't make absurd income promises. My product would not do well on forums as my headline would not be found attractive by most members. This is what sells on most forum..... "Make $10,000 a month working just 10 minutes a day - no website or list needed." These sellers are telling the buyers what they want to hear: Make big money overnight without having to do any work. People just love to be told that they don't have to build a website to make big money online."

        I would like to first of all thank you for this thread. Not only have I found it helpful; but it is obvious from the response of other warriors that this thread is very helpful and that many warriors want to know more about your system. Thanks a lot for taking the time to answer all the questions warriors are asking about your system.

        Since you are not in a position to offer coaching and you already create products; can I suggest that you create a WSO and explain in a bit more detail your system - how you create your ecourses and set up your site. I think that will save you a lot of time.

    Great Info you have there. I really like your idea on emailing your list only twice per week. In that way, you're keeping them active and curious what you have to offer.

      Hi - Thanks. Emailing my subscriber only two times per week has worked well for me in all my list building methods.

    Hi Frank,

    I have been over this thread a few times now, and I want to thank you for this wealth of pure gold information. A lot of people on this forum would have tried to up-sell something to the readers by now, but you are not. You freely give your time and advice with no hidden agenda, and I find that inspiring. You are genuine and generous, and I am a fan for life.

    I thank you sincerely.

    Ben

      Great post. thump up @OP.

      For those who don't know how to find CC youtube videos.

      Youtube is another of my favorite sites for videos that offers Creative Commons-licensed videos. there is no easy link for you to access the list of Creative Commons videos, but you can append the word “, creativecommons” (including the comma) to the end of your search term.




      I hope this helps.
