I am new to email marketing and just started an online business in health and wellness. I have tried some FB ads but it is not going well at all. What is the best way to start email marketing. This is harder than i thought it would be. Thanks! from a newbie

    You can build a solid FB fan page in your niche, add some quality content, images, articles etc. then run a Like campaign for about $5/day to like your page. Then you can put together a good report in your niche and post your link to your page fans. Also visit other common groups with your opt-in report or giveaway.
    Just a few thoughts of wishes

      Thank you! I didn`t think of the $5 to like my page idea. I have just set up a FB page and will add more content. I also have a good report for my niche already but it has been hard to advertise on FB as they keep rejecting my ad so I keep changing the wording....anyway, i will try your idea. Also many FB groups do not allow adverting so i am still trying to find some groups that do. Forums are also very tricky with no advertising allowed.....been spending hours trying to find forums where i can advertise my report....... so hard to get started many thanks again....any more ideas most welcome

    Hi mandizw,

    Being in this industry for past 5 years, let me give you some tips on how you can excel in this field.

    Email marketing will come under the category of re-targeting, so instead of just only collecting peoples email, what you can do is you can attach re-targeting pixels in your landing page or website, so that whenever people visit your website or landing page the pixel will go sit on the peoples browser (trying to explain in simple terms, but it is way technical than you think) so when ever they try searching any products similar to yours, your ad will pop up.

    re-targeting is the present and future, which is gonna rule the internet marketing.

    As a newbie you can start with facebook re-targeting it is easy and cheap.

    If you do have any doubt, try to reach me, i will try to clarify your doubts...

        when you pay for a FB ads, do they do the pixels as part of your costs? Sorry i am ignorant or is that something separate you do with FB?

      Thank you anand363

      I don`t think I can do that because my landing page is with launchpad and my son tells me "I need a code to do the pixels." I am still setting up a web site (and writing content furiously) so unfortunately I cannot do the pixels on a web site just yet. So I really only have a FB page and landing page to attract people right now. The forum commenting is tough as most health forums do not allow marketing......I am trying FB ads and I am learning as I have had lots of interest but few opt ins, so i am working on my landing page to make it better.

    You need to get people on your list who are potential buyers. I know that sounds simplistic. Start running your landing page on Bing Ads or Google. Use keywords for your niche, find the top performing conversions and increase advertising on those keywords. Keep building your list. Good luck.

    Does your landing page have a free offer just to grab emails? If so you should drive some solo ads to it. Usually you can get a little warmer traffic from that

  • I think the first thing to do is choose a solid email marketing service. I have had lots of success with GetResponse. It's very easy to use, has tons of features, including landing pages, web forms, surveys, newsletters you can send your list once you have them, also webinars. For the price for everything you get, it beats most webinar services by far in quality and price.

    They also have a 90 day course on building 10,000 subscribers that I've been going through and have learned tremendously from it. So far, I've seen an increase in my subscribes. The course teaches you good techniques on list building, using good keywords for organic traffic to your web forms and landing pages, using various social media platforms and guest blogging.

    I am sure some others have had some success here. They also have a 30-day free trial. If you want to try them out go to

    Anyway, good luck with your list building and please reply if you have anything you can add to this.

      Thank you, I will take a look. I signed up with Lurn and use their launchpad so i am not sure how different they are to get response? Thanks to everyone for all the head is spinning and i have lots of work to do. How much did your subscribers increase in 90 days with get response?
      {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11052098].message }}
      • I am almost half way through it and all the information is out together very well, but in terms of numbers I have gained about 100 more subscribers since I started. It isn't really about the numbers though but the increase in the subscribe rate for me. Can you link me the email service you use, so I can check that out as well

    The thing is, is email marketing so powerful as it is described?
    The big chance is that your letter will be classified as spam and will be put in junk folder. Even if it is dropped to inbox, there is a small chance that it will be opened.
    May be this technique is effective with big email lists?
    Anyway, I don't think email marketing has a big percent of conversion .
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[11052364].message }}
    • It does if your email list is the right audience. Getting subscribers to opt in and then confirm their subscription is very powerful, that means they want to hear from you and are more likely to open that email. Also build trust with the audience give them something they can appreciate before you slam them with an advertisement for a product. This way they trust you and are more likely to take your recommendation

    Hey mandizw

    FB ads can be a minefield if you don't know what you're doing. I've had numerous bad experiences myself but they are the best source of paid ads around at the moment. If you do have some money to spend of FB ads I would educate yourself first. There are lots of good courses out there at the moment that will offer support and guidance, it's much easier than trying to figure it out on your own

    I had an experience recently with FB ads that might be similar to what you're going through. I couldn't get my opt-ins under $6, I tried altering the targeting, the ad image, ad copy, different audiences but nothing worked.

    In the end it turned out to be my free gift. The offer just wasn't something my market wanted. So maybe look at your free gift and try some alternatives.

    However you should have some free traffic strategies running alongside your paid ads. When I say 'free' they're not totally free as you pay in 'time' rather than money.

    Join some facebook groups and forums in your marketplace. But do it the right way. You have to enter Forums and Facebook groups with absolutely no marketing intention whatsoever. You need to participate in discussions, answer questions and add value to the group and/or discussion. On your Facebook page or profile is where you will leave the link to your site and signature file in a forum.

    If you participate in the forums and groups with no ulterior motive then people will naturally come and check you out. Just going in there and spamming links will get you ignored or even worse, banned.

    This strategy does take time but is very effective.

    Also look for high traffic blogs in your market. Check out blog posts that have high interaction and leave comments on them. After you leave a comment you can drop a link back to your website.

    Again, you have to add value to the post. Don't just write 'great post' and drop a link. Think of your comment as a mini extension of the post by adding value. The blog readers will see your comment and naturally come and check you out

    Hope that helps, give me a shout if you have any questions
