OPINION: Ideal recurring income model in IM.

17 replies
First, I am biased. We've published for 24 years straight now, one of the longest running solely owned sites online. Warrior Forum is about the same age, but it was sold by the lone proprietor to an International Conglomerate several years ago.

The ideal RECURRING IM biz is...the NEWSLETTER.

The rest is the story, and if you don't like to read much, then you have my opinion and you can feel free to ignore it, or ask questions if you have them, anyhow...

24 years ago an Australian college professor, Dien Rice, PhD of Physics, came to Ohio to discuss a possible Internet Marketing venture. I showed the professor my fav tool, a screwdriver, with a button which released the tool and other things could be inserted, so you could have a Phillips head of different sizes, huge flathead, an awl, ONE handle with many different blades/tools to be used.

It is as simple as a tool can get.

I related that any ONLINE MARKETING I did had to be as easy to understand and use as that one multi-use tool was. He agreed.

No power tools; chainsaws, drills, saws, scrapers, sanders, etc., etc. SIMPLE tools.

At the time I was coming off a successful run as a writer for a popular newsletter which had several thousand subscribers...this was mailed once a month at the time and the company was doing 150 million a year with about `1200 products at any given time in the pipeline, a very complicated business model. No thanks to that.

But that little part of the company, the NEWSLETTER could easily be done online and so that was our agreed upon approach to an IM Joint Venture.

Our specialty, and Dien Rice has become one of the best ever doing it, is the little known, unusual business that isn't getting a lot of attention but has tremendous small band or one man band potential. Again, we like the screw driver.

I rail against complicated, lots-of-moving-parts businesses for the Warrior in general, because, the more pieces and parts, the more chance of a breakdown. Although there are some businesses and even IM things which are more complicated and if you have the knowledge, skill and passion for it, by all means pursue it.

The NEWSLETTER approach was within the general concept of PUBLISHING, and 14 years ago, Dien wrote two books, based upon his newsletters. We've also had blogs, short term subscription sites, training programs, consulting as well as having pursued our separate off line businesses.

But for the sake of the WF, and new Warriors, no matter what you decide to do, consider a newsletter, even if it only documents your journey toward some other IM success, and create something which can give you substantial returns on your investments of time and money.

Now, of course, if you want a lot of moving parts, people contact, third party fulfillment, and your idea has huge potential for you, by all means try it.

If you would like a very simple tool, which gives decades of profitable returns, consider the newsletter, OK?

Questions? Comments?

P.S. Thanks to max5ty for his reference to beehiiv in his Warrior Path thread, and I am about half way through the free trial for the Ohio Lottery Entertainment Newsletter, just to test the site out, and it may go live. We'll see.

    Your posts are always interesting and thought-provoking,
    so thank you for that.

    I first heard about Beehiiv on YouTube and am wondering
    whether you are using the AI content generation features
    of it, if you are having trouble getting used to using AI or
    are you still putting pen to paper, and if that is proprietary,
    I understand if you don't wish to divulge.

    How do you get signups, does Beehiiv help distribute your
    newsletter.

    I understand your thoughts on keeping things simple but
    would it be viable to promote additional products within
    the newsletter such as affiliate offers, other recurring
    memberships, books, courses, and the like.

      Thanks Monetize, I'm new to beehiiv, still on the 30 day trial (learning curve).

      I haven't used their AI, but have used several others, just today, I had a nice chat with Bing about selling a slightly used UFO, and we had a nice discussion, although it kept getting more and more adamant about REALITY, I think it thought I was wasting its time.

      So, yes, AI is a part of my future newsletters, IF, I pursue some of them. With Ohio Lottery it isn't needed because I have my own charts to post.

      Again, this part, beehiiv is new for me, we always had our own sites and ways to deliver our previous newsletters, most behind a password, so I'll have to test things out. From what I've seen so far, it looks like it can do it all...we've often promoted other things in the newsletters, almost always proprietary, and way back in the first decade, some affiliate promotions too. My thoughts are, as long as you have their interest, stoke it with related things. Of course, THEY have to feel the value and not just the pitch.

      Future newsletters, like I have the outline of one on Scrying, and different crystals used, it will have a lot more AI content only because it will save a lot of time on seeking the smaller sites, it is a rather specific field. With 45 years of archival material, I suspect there will be a lot of copy and paste into AI and let it find more recent thoughts on some of the subjects like remote viewing, astral projection, fascination, etc., etc.

      I am hopeful beehiiv will be the one stop solution, and my goal is small numbers, no more than 1000 of any of them at very low costs, from 1 to 4 dollars a month. The Ohio Lottery Newsletter may be 1.00 a week. Since I've been retired for several years, just willing to give a few hours a week to these fun little projects which hopefully pay for themselves too.

      GordonJ

      P.S. I imagine, a FREE sample will be the initial way to get signups, or a free report, it has worked for 24 years, don't see why it won't keep working. And yes, they actually act as a web host for the newsletter, and all transactions (to my understanding) take place there. Again, I'm learning but it looks very promising for my very low ambitions.

      You do know that AI only regurgitates stuff that's already been done right?

      Any Marketer worth anything will come up with a 'big idea' (as Ogilvy originally said) for their product...

      a big idea is one that hasn't already been used. AI is all used stuff.

      If you lack creativity in coming up with a big idea, I guess you need AI.

      Myself, I'll outsell anything you offer using AI...

      @ Gordon -

      Sounds like you're onto something.

        If I am on to something, it is only because you gave the inspiration to DO IT.

        A very old work of mine which got limited release is a book on FASCINATION, and how in the animal world it is used by a few on their prey. We still have that ancient instinct in us, and it is a powerful tool or technique.

        And I believe the niche to be a smaller market, unlike starting a business, which is huge and is often more of a shotgun style marketing approach, these off beat and maybe woo woo niches, which I have been a part of for decades...can be served, much like team sports fans. Michael Rubin grew FANATICS to huge heights by taking care of the fan. '

        Many off beat topics which have gotten unfairly lumped in with woo woo or conspiracy or nut jobs, any thing which mainstreams discredits, deserve to have a voice and representation too.

        Also, to your point of a low cost newsletter, which you wrote about in your initial PATH post, is a concept many Warriors don't get. While they are trying to score tens of thousands of dollars and making it big, they could be pulling in a thousand or two thousand dollars a month with a low cost subscription.

        So, I (and others) will be following you closely, and it is indeed the METHODOLOGY which will be keenly observed.

        Fascination, ESP. PSI, Scrying, may not be as well known as LOTTERY, but even with that market, I'm only going to deal with OHIO Lottery, and then just Pick 3, 4, Rolling Cash 5 and the multi-states. So, my goal is 500 to 1000 Ohio subscribers for that weekly newsletter at 1 buck a week.

        Thank YOU for the beehiiv notice, although I knew about it before, I never really considered using it, but I am a couple of weeks into the free trial and it seems to be what I will be using too. Although, I may offer free reports or 1 dollar deals at Gumroad too, more of an intro.

        You don't know whether you could outsell me or not, since you have

        NO CLUE OR IDEA ABOUT WHAT I AM USING IT FOR OR WHAT
        I AM DOING!

        NOT. ONE. SINGLE. TEENY. TINY. CLUE.

        AI regurgitates?

        Not as far as I can tell. I consistently develop great content from
        its outputs, on a wide variety of unrelated topics.

        It probably regurgitates if you keep asking it the same old tired
        regurgitated un-original questions and then get angry when it
        doesn't provide good results.

        https://www.warriorforum.com/artific...l#post11759179

        As to my ideas, I have developed several proprietary methods
        long before AI was available to me, coming up with new ideas
        has never been an issue for me.

        It is YOU that uses it for new ideas. (See above link.)

        The point of my question regarding Beehiiv, is that their system
        has a built-in option to create AI generated content within it, but
        I have not tried it yet, which is why I asked.

        If you feel so strongly about AI, why don't you address your
        concerns to the engineers that developed it.

      Thing is, nooz is always noozworthy -- that's why it's nooz.

      An' on a plannit firin' off on an evolutionary ticket primed evah to be catalytic, nooz is nevah in short supply.

      The insect world is BUSTIN' with this kinda nooz.

      Turn yr attention to VEGETABYOOLS, you gaht a whole panorama of potential intrest!

      Thing is ... WHO FRICKIN' CARES!

      For nooz to figure impact, it gotta be relevant.

      For nooz to prompt actschwaahn, it gotta be PRESSIN'.

      So, hey, can anywan help git this baby elephant the frick offa my ass?

      She wandrin' round, perfectly anonymous an' un-noozworthy till'n she dropped outta a dumbass airplane carryin' her buttween zoos, survived the fall c/o her prehensile trunk plus also an inflatable kids' playpark, gaht picked up by the loono dahg rescue guy in my apartment thought she war a POODLE, fled his place bcs she didn't like the taste of MUTT-O-MUNCH, shimmied through my door when I home too late to even figure she naht evin a GHOST ... an' like I jus' woke up to check life stuff like email, Princess Dooty rostah, plus also WF (see how I pee kudos?) ... an' now ima more crushed than I workin' Benedict Cumberbatch agin muh wall.

      Nooz is the perpetyool spew of the Caaahsmaahs.

      Thing is, to WHOM is it relevant?

      For that ansa, you gotta look to where a dearth of info perfectly syncs with the travails of the people don't gaht it.

      That is when spew gets kinda spussific.

      Yeah, so where can I git summa them CHRISTMAS ANTLERS?

        Thing is, to WHOM is it relevant?

        I suspect many newsletters don't have much news in them. It may be old information presented to a new batch of buyers, but it is hardly news.

        Knowing yesterdays lottery numbers is only helpful for checking yesterday's tickets. Forecasting via Scrying may have more of a PRESSIN' factor to it, if I get your gist.

        The OHIO Lottery Newsletter isn't going to appeal to those in FL, CA or most other states, and so it limits the market, and makes it relevant to a specific group of people, AND those are people already playing Ohio lotteries, right?

        Your point is important because I think a lot of people may mistake their knowledge and skills for NEWS, and although it can be profitable as some sort of a digital product perhaps, not necessarily a NEWSletter.

        I think the TOPIC (content) would be the most important thing, that is, if you let those who are interested in the topic know about the newsletter, and it contains new, and relevant information.

        By choosing arcane, off beat, little known areas, like Scyring, PSI, ESP, and other fringe areas which often get poo pooed by main stream society in general, are excellent niche subjects for small subscriber/low cost newsletters.

        The challenge is to find those niches and alert them to the existence of such things as a newsletter on THAT subject and where to get it.

    OP, I can't agree enough.

    The money is in the list.

    Always have. Always will.

    I recently got into crypto promotions and I've tried all sorts of newfangled platforms. Guess which model beats everything else? Opt in email.

    I am launching an AI business soon. This time around, I'll skip the other methods and focus on email.

    Here's a tip: Treat your SOCIAL MEDIA presence and content as FEEDERS to your list.

      Thanks writeaway, I MOSTLY agree, about the list, but with a little clarification of how it is compiled, used and respected too. IF I were younger, and serious about using a newsletter for long term IM profits, I agree also about social media.

      I will not involve any social media at all, and the reason is, my goals are small enough to be reached without what I consider to be (now) the slop and mess of social media.

      I wonder how many Warriors would love to make 4 thousand a month from 1000 subscribers paying 4 bux a month? I'd bet it would be a game changer for almost all of the newbies here. What we see are promotions and goals of making tens of thousands of dollars and the calculator millionaires who pound on the numbers of hopes, dreams and schemes.

      I think that will be a useful feature that Beehiiv offers, the opt in email, and it probably is still the best way to build up that list too.

      With such modest goals, no more than 1000 subscribers per newsletter, and some at only 1 dollar a month, I suspect the topic/CONTENT is going to be the more important thing, and maybe some slight participation in Facebook or other groups of people interested, mainly via participation.

      I am seeking a Cialdini "Click-Whirr" automatic response from a larger % of those who come in contact with the idea of the newsletter due to the fact it is hyper focused on niches.
      Thanks for the reminder about the list, and sticking with tried, tested and proven email will probably help insure success from the get go.

      GordonJ

      OH. Afterthought.
      I won't offer any back ends, or do any affiliate marketing, or try to market or sell to these subscribers, pure content, and possibly opinions on what if any additional materials might be warranted. Again, if I were younger and focused in, I'd have all the social media sites working, the newsletter as a piece of the whole thing, a blog, and affiliate programs. But I would also PROVE the concept first, before I started adding things on.

      And Beehiiv seems capable of being a good enough test ground.

      Crucial? Maybe name a part of any market or niche which isn't? If you know of an area where the prospect's needs, wants, preferences and online behavior is ignored, I'd love to hear about it, eh?

      With my newsletters, I'll be targeting groups of people whom I already interact with and am a member of that group, for example, OHIO lottery. Been in that group for decades.

      Frankly, your post confuses me because I feel your talking basics of any marketing effort, online or off. A successful NEWSLETTER MODEL has decades of examples to cull from, can't recall any I subscribed to which didn't serve my needs and wants on THAT given subject.

      Developing a prospect/customer AVATAR is, step one. We've developed tools for doing this long ago.

      I'm not trying to argue, I truly don't understand your point, one which I feel "goes without saying" in any marketing endeavor.

      The want/need is current INFORMATION as it relates to their participation in the subject, be it lottery, forecasting, astrology, PSI, ESP, mind reading, astral projection vs. remote viewing...all well defined niches with enough interest for my very modest goals.

      I don't see 1000 in each niche as being too outrageous and outside the realm of possibility, and when bundled, maybe a lot of cross over too.

      Who doesn't begin with their ideal customer/avatar in mind when they start?

    I had bookmarked an article late last year that I thought was interesting about deciding on a platform for a newsletter.

    Myself, I decided on Beehiv because I thought it offered the most for what I was doing.

      Thank you for this, I dove in, spent the time LEARNING and honing in on my Intent for this project. If I were younger, or more ambitious, or even more serious about it, I may go with a different choice.

      For LOW numbers of subscribers with LOW costs, and after testing and comparing and what was really a good rabbit hole with the many examples and links and being able to see what was actually working, was very valuable, beehiiv will do the job.

      And I may work with a couple of other people who have a cross over, or a related subject, and they would like to do a newsletter too...so we can create a loop of content with costs being low enough we could have many of the same subscribers...or, I thought of cooperation/complimentary vs. competition.

      Also, I want to do one weekly, and this would be more or less a one page update newsletter, mostly for Ohio Lottery, but also for some of the more outlandish subjects I may pursue; Fascination, Mind Control, Influence, Bias Creation, etc.

      Anyhow, THANK YOU for doing your research, and sharing it, very beneficial link for those of us who think you have a brilliant idea and want to do our own thing with it.

      GordonJ

      P.S. What do you think of a newsletter on overcoming bias and habit which holds one back from business success? I see a lot of people who want to "eat the rich", and blame and complain how business is unfair and slanted in favor of the rich. Maybe too much to think about? Whatevs, thanks again.

    Newsletters are definitely a proven business model.

    I think The Agora portfolio of companies is making a killing in this space ( 9 figures yearly) and has been doing so for many years.

      As of 2016, The Agora Companies published a combined total of nearly 300 books and over 120 newsletters through thirty-six publishers. from wikipedia. Sure, some of those have shuttered, but still newsletters made Bill Bonner an ex-pat billionaire with his own army.

      In my other thread; The Centuries Old Secret to Rapid Success, I wrote about the BOOK.
      And what Agora did well, as did many, was to introduce their newsletters with a book, or to add one on if the book sells well. Ben Suarez added the Update Hotsheet Newsletter for buyers of his book, 7 Steps to Freedom ll.

      That is a powerful combination. I remember mid 60's getting THE NEWSLETTER ON NEWSLETTER, later taken over by Howard Penn Hudson. One of my fav's was Dean F.V. DuVall's DAX NEWSLETTER, and Dean's book, "$100,000.00 in 90 Days" was an International best seller.

      I also note that Dan (Lazarus) Kennedy got off his death bed, and is once again publishing a paper and ink newsletter in 2024.

      With all the AI talk, and having several Warriors reportedly using AI to generate content, I would think a Book and Newsletter would be a perfect fit.

      Although, the problem is the same for all marketers, FINDING CUSTOMERS. With a book as the front end, you have a built in audience for your recurring income.

      Bill Myers was an Internet Pioneer with his Newsletters, the one on Video was way ahead of its time.

      I think it is a good idea to begin with what one knows, and has interest in, create a book (or reports when combined made into a book) and build a newsletter into the back end.

      Just an opinion, but far easier to have OWNERSHIP and control than other IM avenues like affiliate, drop shipping or ecom.

      AI is great for saying things like Share success stories, create guides, tutorials, video, encourage interaction, diversify, JV, etc., etc. etc.

      Your post, like most AI is very short on the HOW TO do all these things. Not one of those 5 ideas help anyone to create, and MARKET a newsletter. How about you write copy directly for a specific group to get them sign up and PAY for a newsletter subscription.

      Pablam. AI created.
