Email Marketing Question?

19 replies
Hello Warriors,

How are y'all today? I have a question and I am curious. I am interested in list building ( email marketing ) and I wanted to know is your list one of your powerful internet marketing tools that brings you in profit. I learned that if you help people solve a problem than try to make a quick sale from your list. That if you take care of your list, they will take care of you. I've been doing internet marketing on the side, slowly but surely everything is going good finally. What do you think of email marketing and what email marketing serivce do you suggest I get aweber?

    hi ...

    definitely focus on building a rapport with your list ... provide quality and value both in the information/products you give away for free and of course in the ones which you hope your list will buy.

    I have written an ebook on this if you are interested ... just let me know.

    Re autoresponders, Aweber is certainly very good. Also have a look at getresponse ... I use both and have never had problems with either.

      My list virtually IS my IM income. If you build it properly and take care of it,
      it can do very well for you.

      Having said that, not all business models need or work well with a list. It really
      depends on your model and what you're selling.

      Point is, a list is NOT a must have in order to be successful, but if done correctly
      and nurtured, it can be an amazing income generator.

      In fact, one December, I made over $16,000 JUST from my list alone running
      a 12 Days of Christmas Sale. I'm not doing it this year but when I did do it,
      it was very profitable.

      But that's another whole long story.

        Hello Zack!

        You'll have heard of the phrase, "The money is in the list" right? Well, in fact, its wrong... the money is in the relationship with your list...

        ...so, look after it!

        I recommend Aweber.

        Llwyddiant!

    Quality wins over Quantity. Treat your list well, and they will reward you. Use common sense and good customer service - yeah, you really need to build a relationship and want to provide a good value for being on your list.

    Yeah, use Aweber here as well. Their interface is a bit confusing at first, but there are plenty of tutorials out there to help you out. Then it just becomes second nature.

    If you already have a site or blog that's getting traffic and you don't have a list you need to get one ASAP because you're missing out on tons of traffic / repeat visit / sales. If you've currently not got a site, blog or product and think by creating a list you'll be able to promote affiliate offer after affiliate offer over and over again and make huge profits I'd not recommend it. That IME is not a sustainable business model (though I'm sure some do very well out of it). I feel that often people just repeat "the money is in the list" and tell all newbies they need a list without actually explaining any further to them that leads people to believe you can just start up a list with nothing and suddenly make loads of money. Not really likely IMO.

    Without a list you will be continuously marketing to cold market strangers. Your list becomes your warm market when you really take care of them.

      "The list is money"

      "The money is in the list"

      "The money is in your relationship with the list"

      ---------------------------------------------------------------

      As far as I'm concerned, the money is in converting leads into buyers.

      Leads could be first time prospects, people on your list, return customers, prospects on other people's lists, impulsive web surfers, etc, etc, etc.

      Lists are great because the leads on them can be buyers over and over again depending upon how well you match what you offer with what they want and how well you treat them when you're not making offers (so they stay on your list of leads).

      I guess my point is the fact that just having a list doesn't guarantee anything. In fact, having a well nurtured (warm) list doesn't guarantee anything either.

      The skill you need to cultivate is sales: (1) somehow finding very targeted prospects (getting leads), (2) getting your very targeted quality products and services in front of them (making offers), (3) converting those prospects into buyers (conversion from a lead to a sale).

      It's not complicated, but it's rarely easy. Executing the right small details will make or break your business.

    Hi Zack,

    As and when you start selling your own products getting all the buyers onto a list and building a relationship with these people can make you a small fortune, but you need to have a personality and rapport to make it work.

    Aweber is a great tool to manage the list and allow you to keep in touch

    Lists based on free reports can also be awesome, but go learn about marketing funnels so that you know the correct way to make people offers.

    Lastly treat your list the same way that you like to be treated, don't get tempted to send them to a page because of the commission you receive, or you'll burn the list.

      Just a couple of side notes regarding list building and Aweber.

      It takes some practice and tweaking to find a good rhythm for email rapport. You don't want to badger your list too frequently but also you don't want them forgetting about you. This is something that's hard to learn based entirely on reading. It takes experience, practice and monitoring of your open rates to find the email frequency sweet spot.

      One thing that would be nice to see from Aweber is split testing on follow-up emails. As of now they only provide split testing on broadcast messages.

    Indeed. Awebers segmentation tools also leaves a lot to be desired IMO, it's just not as flexible as I would like it to be and takes a lot of messing around with. Overall they are still a good choice though.

    Building your list is probably the smartest move you could make to make money online.

    It has been proven that it usually takes showing the same customer a product 5-7 times before they will consider purchasing it. This is why it is extremely hard to sell to first time visitor at your site.

    Also the great thing about having your own personal list, is if you have previously built a relationship with them - you can turn 1 buying customer into a regular buyer

    Email Marketing is an internet marketing weapon that you cannot ignore it .
    You imagine how hard and how much cost you use to generate one lead, do you wish your lead just give you one time conversion and just leave?
    For sure you wish to generate more money from the lead time to time , here why email marketing came in .
    It help you to bring more interaction with your leads, try to share them more idea and improvement of using your product , convince them to upgrade or buy more from you .
    Generate repeated sales would be great.
    Beside aweber , you can try mailchimp or ebuzzzz email marketing tools . Email marketing is the cheaper cost of internet marketing but able to generate high ROI.

    Email list plays an important part in email marketing. The money is in your email list. The quality of the email list has a direct effect on your email marketing result. If you have a good quality (targeted) of email list, you can get a higher possibility of more responses and ROI(rate of investment). More responses can make your relationship with your targeted customers closer.
    You can also pay attention to your subject and mail content. Subject is the first factor to decide whether your mail will be opened or not. You need make it Professional and Interesting. And make your mail content relative and professional. So your customers think you are an expert in this field and trust you. Then he would like to make deals with you. At that time you can do more, help them and make friends with them.
    Good luck in email marketing.
