26,000 Apple Fans on my list - What to sell to them?

19 replies
Hi all

I have a mailing list of 26,000 fans of Apple stuff - iPhones, iPads, iCloud etc.

They have joined a list from a lead magnet about how to use those Apple products.

The open rate is around 50%.

I cannot find the right things to promote to them with a significant commission - the site where they come is largely ad driven (which I hate).

I am really trying to get a follow up sequence that works for them and for me.

Do you have a product that I can promote to this rabid audience?

Or, can you suggest something?

Many thanks.

Ian

    They will be inclined to buying tech stuff.

    Anything from clickbank and amazon would be good to go.

    Try not to make it overtly promotional, engage with them, if possible run a survey and attach a free gift after a draw. That would most likely give you an idea of what to sell and know how to interact with them.

    Hey Ian,

    I can imagine the frustration of this problem. They're a brand/product focused list (not an info or social driven one) so there must be something to monetize with right?

    Maybe more information would help guide people's replies here.

    When they're opening the emails at 50%, what kind of emails are these? Is there anything, any type of content they've been known to click regularly in the emails?

    Then in addition to knowing that, I second John's recommendation for a survey of some kind, if it can be done non-awkwardly and without seeming weird or out of place.

    Good luck with it mate.

    I've seen a few "How to use iPad" ebooks on places like ClickBank paying out 50-75% commission.

    Also, i'd try a few "How to build an app and sell it on the app store" type courses.

    I do a roaring trade in add-on products for certain devices. My suggestion: apps and games.

    App and game reviews with CPA affiliate offers seem like a good place to start. Do themed messages - 5 Apps to help travel, 5 best strategy games, 5 apps to......

    Best of Luck!

      @tonyharte Are you connetcing the game/app reviews to CPA offers specifically - what do you mean by that?

    With a list that size I would definitely send out a survey ASAP. You should be able to get back enough feeback to know what to base future emails on. Especially since you have an average open rate of 50%.

      Guys - many thanks for all the feedback and apologies for not replying - the thread subscription tool failed - and I thought I'd been ignored.

      A survey will go out in the next few days - any more helpful suggestions of what I should be asking?

      On the CPA Affiliate offers - anything anyone would clearly recommend?

      The follow up sequence is currently only 6 mails - 4 are content. More advice and tips on the Apple stuff we write about, 2 are affiliate offers - one for a piece of Apple software and the other a bunch of apps. iTunes commission is horribly low though and we're not getting rich off those any time soon.

      Love the idea of 'make your own app' offers and will try that.

      Many thanks again and any more ideas, let us know.

    How about try to sell them games or productivity applications? That could be something worth trying.

      We do sell some apps to the list as affiliates, but the commission is so dire it makes almost nothing!

    Ian,

    I have worked on an almost similar case before with GREAT results!

    I can offer a few suggestions that might help or even we can form some partnership of sorts.

    I saw a case study the other day on using mobile CPA selling apps and the ROI was double for the Apple Audience vs. Android so you have a good crowd to sell to.
