Fillycheez checking in. Just joined this forum after a few months of lurking.
I want to start off by saying thanks to everyone for posting great content! Can't believe this stuff is available for free!
A few months ago, I decided to jump into affiliate marketing. I spent a few weeks researching "hit-and-run" style affiliate marketing (traffic arbitrage), before settling on email affiliate marketing (building that list!).
I ended up finding an email marketing mentor, who taught me a great deal about copywriting, FB ad buying, and all the technical nuances of affiliate marketing (building funnels, autoresponders, etc)
Based on his teachings, I've been using the following strategy:
1: Use FB ads to target a specific demographic/interest group, offering them an enticing freebie. They get the freebie in exchange for their email.
2. Autoresponder sends user e-book
3. Subscribers are sent daily emails offering insight into a particular problem related to their demographic/interest group. The emails contain affiliate offers that tie into this insight.
I've seen a few threads on the Warrior Forum that follow a similar approach. However, I've also seen a lot of threads suggesting less frequent emails, and sending more "non-selling"/value emails to build a relationship before sending an offer.
So, here is my question for y'all. Does this sounds like a viable strategy?
I've built my list to 1k members using this strategy, and have been emailing offers for about 2 weeks without a bite yet.I know my copywriting, offers, and presale pages can probably be improved (I'm still pretty new at this), but would love to hear some opinions before throwing more time and money to improving this strategy.
Thank you all for your time!
