About Mailing List?

by yazooda 3 replies
Hi guys, good morning (as it is in my country :-) ).

My question is a very beginner. I'm planning to build a success blog, since I have many ideas about cultural things. But before rolling the ball, I have been studying some important parts of successful blog! I heard a lot about Mailing List and how is it the most important Earner on Blogs. Please see this quote from a helper
In analytics, there is a principle called “the one metric that matters” (OMTM). The idea is that you find a single number that accurately predicts the success or failure of your project.

In the case of blogging, that number is the size of your email list. (Not RSS, mind you – it’s dying a slow but certain death.) In my experience, your email list is the most accurate predictor of how much money you’ll make.

Here at BBT, we make about three dollars per subscriber per month – an impressive feat, due mostly to our skill with marketing. The number isn’t important, though. The point is that I can accurately predict our sales based on the number of subscribers. So can you.

If you’re new to this, I would strive for one dollar per subscriber per month in sales. In other words, an email list of 1,000 subscribers should result in at least $1,000 per month in sales, 10,000 subscribers would result in $10,000 per month in sales, and so on.

The more subscribers you get, the more money you make. Granted, your relationship with your subscribers and the quality of your products or services and dozens of other factors still matter, but to drive revenue, focus on email list growth. To make money blogging, it’s absolutely essential.

Find out how much money
So, how to build a customized mailing list? How to customize the message I want to get sent automatically to subscribers? How does the process of selling services to subscribes get done?

Hope I find the right here.


Best Regards,
Yazeed.

    Most marketers that want to build an email list will obtain an auto-responder account from a major auto-responder company. Such as Aweber, Constant Contact, Infusionsoft, GetResponse, to name a few. They act as an online database to store the email addresses and such of your subscribers. They also act as your email platform to email your subscribers.

    You would place an Opt In form on your blog in several places, and then again in the middle of a blog post and/or at the end of each blog post, asking your viewers to opt in to your list.

    You must have a compelling reason for your viewer to opt in though. Your reason why to opt in varies with the blog post, your blog theme, and other factors.

    In your auto-responder account you can set up customized messages to be sent at certain intervals, days, and times.

    The process of selling services to your subscribers via email is a whole other matter.

    Hope this helps a little.

        Mailchimp is good for transactional emails. For, promotional emails stick to getresponse or aweber.
