Here's somthing that's worked well for me...

If you want to sell people somthing , first take them through a funnel which firsts shows them your value, gets them to like and trust you ...

Then 'recommend' your product to them instead if selling it to them.

You will make wayyy more sales faster

    This is why they say "the money is in the list." Done right - by doing the things you mention - you build trust and authority with your list members. Then when you go to them to sell your products, you have an audience ready to jump right on it.

    My biggest regret (by far) in my IM career was not starting a list a lot sooner. If you're new to it all and are just reading this, do yourself a HUGE favor and make starting an email list your top priority. Imagine being able to make money literally by sending out an email. It really can be that simple... if you do what the OP suggests here. Don't just start plying your list members with sales pitches right off the bat. Build some trust and establish yourself as someone looking out for their interests. That's the key. Everybody wins.

    It is true that to make people buy from you, they have have to build a sort of trust in you. Gaining their trust is not a day thing, you have to market and brand yourself to achieve this.

    I think in addition to the above it's important to remember that in order for a sale to happen, the bottom line is they have to like and trust you first.

    While it may happen otherwise, it won't be based on any kind of valuable relationship, and relationships often sell the product or service on their own. It requires less analytical thinking, and you get that by establishing friendship and trust which come from adding value.

    You never want to hide what you get out of something, people don't care if you do something because you have something to gain, they just want you to be open about it and truthful, because they suspect it anyway and would have a harder time trusting you if you say it's just because you care and they don't have a relationship with you yet.

    Once you allow them to trust you, you can show how yes, you're making a buck but you're also sharing something more valuable than the dollars exchanged (to them).

    You both win, and as said above, it's actually faster "in the long run" if that makes sense. And better for everyone if you truly provide value.

    Hello Nathan,

    You have reason, the affiliate marketing Teanfire explained is the one I prefer, it will bring you money. as you said in the lond run, it will be faster.... You just have to send an email to your big list of prospects who trut you and see sales in minutes.

    But my point was, this is not the fastest way to make a sale, that take time to do.

    There is PPC that can bring sales in munites, but it cost money and you can lose a lot money... it is why I not recommend to newbie. but alot of internet marketer just use it and send traffic directly to the partner site and make alot of money.

    Oh of course opportunities, I knew what you were saying. I wasn't disagreeing with you. I was just being more philosophical.

        Well, if it works for you than keep on doing it, but my experience has been different. To begin with, I've been in sales and marketing all my life and I have never tried to sell anyone anything. For one thing, if they detect that, you are dead in the water.

        Indeed, my experience with sales is built on a relationship. With this in mind, making a sale one time is not going to build a business.

        On the whole, many Marketers are making sales, but not growing the business. Consequently, I would keep do it but at some point you should think about how many buy from you a second time and third etc.

          Hey James Clark!

          You are right!

          the power of this method, let's call it "relationship" is in the long term... as you said when they buy form you the first time, if they are happy they will buy several time... Even I do believe this and doing it... I know for sure it is not the fast way to make sale... there are alot of other affiliate method that has great results.

          Brilliantly put. Look after your customers and the sales will take care of themselves. Concentrate on selling and you lose them as customers.

          You'll also get a ton of word-of-mouth referrals by implementing the first strategy.

          Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't word-of-mouth the BEST form of advertising you can get?

    I think word-of-mouth IS one of if not the best form of marketing. I have to agree. What others say about you has a lot more weight to it than what you say.

    Relationships should be built so trust can foster.

    There are two methods (at least) for building and maintaining a list .

    Marketer one builds a list ...spends time building the relationship....eventually tries to close a sale .

    marketer two builds a list ..... spends time driving massive amounts of traffic to the squeeze page .... loses some members but is putting 3 times more members in the funnel than he is losing . Gives a certain amount of value but never misses an opportunity to make a sale .

    I used to be marketer one .

    It gets tiresome continuously trying to keep a list of freebie seekers happy . Trying to decipher the perfect time to make that pitch you are hoping will not upset someone and see them unsubscribe .

    I didn't want to become marketer two to the extreme. Although I can see some of the benefits , I have been in this game long enough to realize constantly having driving traffic is not the best business model.

    A traffic source dries up and you are out in the cold until you get another model working well. If you follow marketer two's philosophy to the hilt , the unsubs could self implode before you get the stream back up.

    I settled on a hybrid so to speak.

    I try to make useful contributions to my list members , have a money link in the ps file , and drive a lot of traffic to the funnel.

    I no longer worry about when to make the sales pitch . I make it when I am ready . I tell my list upfront that I am an internet marketer and I make a living selling online .

    Since I am dealing mostly with other marketers they usually understand .

    Those that don't do not fit my business model for the type of list member I am looking for .

    There is no one method going to work for everyone . If you try to keep everyone but yourself happy ... you might as well get one of those job thingies .

    I know some will think I am the village idiot for saying this but ... oh well here it goes .

    A relationship is important . The second you let any list member take the lead in the relationship you lose control of your business.

    Set guidelines far how for you are willing to go to keep a list member happy and do not pass the line . Once you do , you can't go home again.

    I think you're somewhat right, but perfect hype and making people want something so bad they can't live without it is better. People will buy night and day from you then. But you must have a great product that will not be returned...I also like using hypnotic word phrases that force people to buy faster.
    There are many different methods...but in the finale judgment of the customer will always be this.........Is my product I purchased worth it?........if it is and you're a great marketer, you'll make millions online.
