I have heard and read good things about email marketing and making the list,so does email marketing offer the best conversion rates to affiliates? Is it much better than on page ads and banners?

    Yes, and I will tell you why.

    It is NOT a one time shot with Email Marketing. You can have multiple exposures of a Product Offering to a particular prospect. And it can be as many as you want via Follow Ups and Broadcasts

    During this process you are building rapport and engagement with this prospect.

    Which will eventually make Conversions higher than the other forms you talk about

    Email marketing has been the best converting strategy I have seen. Always be sure to offer value and free information that helps customers get to where they want to be.

    It depends on your email marketing strategy.

    My conversion rates are WAY LOWER. But my volume is much higher.

    A lot if it depends on how you build your list, and how you market to it.

    The amount of clicks I generate is HUGE. But the $/click is lower than average.

    At the end of the day - it's not the conversion rate that matters. It's the bottom line!

    yep.. email marketing is much more better compare to pages ads and banners... because of one thing... you as a email marketer.. you can keep on email them to your list...you have their contacts already, you can email them to promote products where for page ads and banners... you only show them once...and then... thats all.. if they left the page .. then thats it...

    That's true but its depends on the services which you are giving to the customers or clients. For example if you running retail business this will be the best flat form to increase the conversation rate.But need to flow few mailing rules before sending the mail
    1. Email template - It should be attractive and clear information.
    2. Give internal linking to your web address
    3. Make disclaimer points in the footer part. It's very important
    4. Maintain your signature along with your complete reachout address
    Important point: Creating template and placing information is easy but generating and converting the user is very difficult so make sure whether given links are working properly or not check before sending the mail...
    Thanks...

      As a expert Email marketer, I agree with this person.All of the things such as: Email list, Proper responsive email template,Disclaimer point in the footer part and ofcourse signature is most important.But one things you have to care about that you must create proper responsive email or newsletter template, otherwise you will lose 60% of total targeted audience!
      Thanks

    Yes email marketing has great conversion rates. Only condition is that, you must have your own email list. Having own email list will only help you making impression about your product / services among your customers. And, this is where email will open and the customer will click through, finally making purchase.
    I have done a lot of experiments on email service providers and email relay servers, they also impact big time, on email marketing.

    Hey there,

    The great thing about email marketing is that it's not just one time you can make a sale. It's multiple times. And you can put it on autopilot!

    There's a lot of ways to make money with affiliate offers and for me the best way has been to send them to a blog post and have that blog post talk about an affiliate offer.

    Of course that is after you've built up a relationship with that subscriber.

    If you do things right you can have multiple sales down the road from one customer & that customer is yours to keep. Instead of, sending that customer directly to a product and not being able to market to them again..

    Just my thoughts though

    Adam
