[For starters & newbies] What kind of challenges are you facing to get started with email marketing?

9 replies
Hi!

This would be my first post in this community

I just wanted to know what kind of challenges are you facing to get started with email marketing?

Heres a list of possible challenges:
  • Is it the technical part?
  • Is it building your list?
  • Is it setting up an autoresponder?
  • Is it the actual writing of the emails?
  • Is it getting sales?

This is a question just for those who are new (or starting) with email marketing?

Thanx in advance!

    The first Challenge is obviously BUILDING A LIST.

    Of course after you will face some problems about the autoresponder you choose, etc

    but first BUILD YOUR LIST

    Building your list > Setting up an autoresponder > Actual writing emails > Getting sales.

    To be honest.
    Technicalities is really not a problem the autoresponder that you choose will have a guide for that on how to do things and for you to understand it in the most easiest way.

    Sales will come and go it all depends on what you promote. How you write your email copies and basically how targeted and active your list is.

    The challenges I was facing was getting my emails opened. Setting up your autoresponder is not much of a headache as most autoresponder systems has tutorials.

    Every newbie starting out has different "challenges" they have to overcome at their different stages and all of those that you mentioned are all challenges that we face.
    So it really depends on which level you are at.

    Being a bit more experienced now I can see that all of us walk the same path.

    First it's the mindset "whoa I have to know all this?!" - overcoming the overwhelming stuff you realize you have to know.
    Secondly - The technical portion of setting up your optin page and OTO
    Third - Building your list - the many different methods
    Fourth - Trying to write effective persuasive emails (a lot more difficult than it sounds)

    If I can give one tip - try to focus on just one method, one product when you start off. You can always come back and try different products and methods at a later time.

    For example - I picked Aweber as my AR, Clickfunnels as my optin page builder and 1 method for getting traffic and building it to a size that now works for me.

    Also don't be overwhelmed with the information out there. Just focus on each step and continue to move forward.

    I agree, I think the most difficult part to do is build a list. Of course, I don't want just any bunch of emails to spam, I want an email list who might really want to read into my email's content and in turn generate sales. I understand that the technical aspect might be a bit difficult as well but it is easier since there are available guides on how to do it.

      Mmm...leaving List Building aside... what are the challenges you face to create valuable content for your emails?
