Now I've finally become a member and been spending a few hours scrolling through threads...
All I can say is that the info on this forum is unreal!!
So for the past year and a bit I've been dabbling in email marketing for weight loss - yes weight loss as a 'niche'... I didn't understand that I needed to be a little more specific than that LOL
Anyways over the last year I've spent a few hundred quid on FB ads gathering my leads and I've made about 5 sales all tolled - pitiful!
Finally now it's all starting to click how simple the process is:
- Find a niche that ideally combines two markets
- Have an attractive bait that solves a specific problem (not too broad)
- Give great value and build authority and trust with your list
- Sell them your own and affiliate products
A big mistake I think I've made in the past was seeing this whole IM thing as a hobby I could dip in and out of without fully committing seriously, which seems like a pretty common rookie error...
Also first of all I tried to sell my own product off the bat while trying learn all the other areas at the same time...
Now I think it's kinda clear to learn to convert people with PROVEN products before creating my own... agreed?
Also one thing I struggle with is feeling the need to constantly send out emails for the sake of staying relevant to my list.
Anybody got any words of wisdom they'd like to share?
