Some help with email marketing please!

Hello,
Lately, I became an affiliate marketer to promote the affiliate product links is much more useful to build list and use email marketing, I'm hearing about landing page, capture page and squeeze page,, useful to build email marketing lists that will be an asset in the future,

My questions:
1. What is the difference actually between each one of them?

2. I designed a basic landing using blogger, is there any way that I can get the visitor email directly to my email with out using email marketing paid service? I meant some script or codes that works to extract the visitor data [name, email] and submit them directly to my email, then the visitor will get access to the product's page?

3. sometimes, we surf website and suddenly a pop up screen appeared to cover the whole middle screen, asking us to insert name and email this is probably what is called squeeze page, how can I design and make that pop up page, then deliver the extracted data to my email?

As this beginning stage, I'm trying to learn all the tricks to get some solid experience to understand every step of the sales funnel mechanism, how things really work, or what they call it where the magic happen,
Thank you very much for the help, and looking to hear from you soon!

    1) If you want to build an email list you need a SQUEEZE (lead capture) page. This is a page where a visitor enters their email in return for something of value you are offering.

    2) Don't skimp on this. Use a paid autoresponder service. You can get 30 day free trials and then for around 20 bucks a month you have that in place. Don't try and save a few bucks here - not at this stage.

    3) Focus on higher quality traffic sources.

    Set up your squeeze page before you start thinking about building an entire sales funnel. One step at a time!

    Don't get caught up in the terminology. What marketers might call a landing page, a squeeze page or a capture page are essentially the same thing - a means to obtain the contact details of your visitors. Same goes for a pop-up box. But the important point to remember is that nobody is going to give you their email address unless they're so impressed with your content that they want to hear more from you, or you've given them an offer they can't refuse.

    Work on your offer first, then you can test the various methods of email-capture.

    1. You make a webpage.
    2. You get visitors
    3. You make/create/concoct something that will tempt them to give you their email address in exchange.

    You can use an email service [chimpmail is free]
    OR JUST get them to email you for a copy of whatever it is you are offering.

    As others have said....don't worry about the terminology.

        Before you do, you should know that MailChimp prohibits affiliate marketing under its Acceptable Use Policy.

          Came here to say this. I've seen others starting out make this mistake and it can cost you. You'll need to learn how to use an autoresponder anyway, so why not pick one you can stick with in the long run.

          All the best,
          Jack

    @mixmedia - Why don't you use an autoresponder service like AWeber? They have a 30 day free trial and after that it's $19 a month (price then goes up in tiers according to how many subscribers you have). It needn't cost much per month to have an autoresponder providing you weed out unresponsive subscribers over time.

  • OR, depending on what you are promoting, you can try building a WhatsApp Broadcast List. I've done really well with this. WhatsApp is more effective than ANY email campaign... in my book.

    Whats the catch? Why am I going to give you my email address? Do you have something of value that I am currently searching for? Are you able to ease the pain or provide a solution to a problem I am having? What is prompting me to opt in and allow you to email me with future promotions?

    It's necessary to offer something in return for my information.
    You've asked some very basic questions without providing your end game, except to email them in the future for more promos and of course, build your asset.

      Thanks for the reply,
      simply, will promote clickbank and alike products, such us weight lose, and much more health care products that many people are looking for, this is one niche, and will look for some other niches too, I agree with you that the capture page should promote what attracts people otherwise no catch ups,,
      thanks anyway,
