money is in the list really!

14 replies
Some members here in WF will probably knows me, i am the person who created many threads, because i am struggling to make money online. Its been a couple of months now should i say 10 months or so. My popular threads is i have 300 dollars.

Its been really a tough time for me figuring out how to make money online. But warrior forum is the best place to ask. Some will really help you like greg guitar, sandra martinez and of course alexa smith and others. And of course some will criticize you but its okay. Because you should know that you are a student and they are your teacher. Never get angry with those people.

WF is the best place to know knowledge in IM, but be ready for loads of information that soon will confuses you, but still you get the knowledge that's the key.

This is the method, but honestly it may work for me and it may not work for others. Its like medicine some medicine work for others some will not.

This is my method and all of them is for free, but you need a time and hard effort to do this the only i paid is the auto responder. There is no seo involve here.

Build a list!. because money is in the list. its true.

1st- find a niche that you are interested or passion about, it really must if you are a newbie like me.

2nd- set up an optin form or a squeeze page there are so many site gives you those, and host it free hosting like bythehost and freehostia.

3rd- the hard part sign up with all those forum related on your niche there are so many, be a guest poster there are so many. Be friends with the members in the forum you sign up. Write comments in the forum build relationship, post comments in blog but don't make spammy comments. After you build the relationship you can now post the link of your site to get their emails.

4th- after you get their emails its time to write informative thing. You don't need to be a good writer as long as they understand what you are saying. "Nobody is perfect" as they say. Personally i tell them that i am not good in english straight away, but because i build already a relationship they understand me. Write down at the end of the email if you have questions email me. Now you will know what they are looking for straight away.

5th- Don't sell yet email informative 4 to 5 times first before selling your affiliate offer or cpa whatever you are promoting.

6th- rinse and repeat. with the money you have now, you can buy good squeeze page, optin form and hosting and a domain name. You can buy solo ads and ppc and whatever you can promote your offer.

Again it may worked for me it may not work for others.

    i'd add that you need to have e-mail subjects that stand out, otherwise none of those e-mails will get opened at all, and you won't sell a thing.

    Good to hear that this hard worked for you!!

      Whilst good email headlines are important and WILL increase open rates in fact the most important thing in getting your emails opened is something that happens BEFORE they even opted in.

      And that's warming them up / building a relationship and trust with them. Them opting in because they like you and your content. And setting their expectations properly.

      If you're sending cold traffic to a squeeze page and bribing them to opt in for a freebie you can write the best email headlines in the world and your open rates will still be low.

      Send your traffic to your blog or a site full of epic content, let them absorb it and let them opt in of their own free will without a bribe because they love what you do and your open rates will shoot up even if your headlines aren't great.

    Glad to hear list marketing worked for you! The great thing about it is it's low-risk. If one email doesn't work, well, you can always try another one.

    Well-written subject lines do make a difference, though. You're writing to people who get hundreds of emails a day... if your email stands out like a nugget of gold in a pile of dirt, you'll make a lot more money.

    I'll never forget how I made $1000.00 from 25 subscribers in less than 48 hours... I was selling $250.00 service. Then, made $500.00 within next 5 days.

    The way I did it is wrote very personal email knowing what my subscriber wants right now, what exactly I can do for him/her right now and determined what they would pay for it right now.

    But for a product it became a bit harder.

    Look, if there is a problem your customer has right now and you can truly help them fix it right now - there is quiet bit of money people would pay.

    I don't do mailing like these often because it takes time to perform a service for several people...

    I am operating in non-IM niche.

        I don't know what evergreen niche is but I assume if it has a problem that people want to get solved right now, and you can legitimately do it, and they can pay your fee, then compose them a professional email (maybe have guys at WF review it).

        Put it this way: you opened this thread because you have a problem, right?

        Well imagine someone appears and says "for such and such fee I'll help you solve your problem right now. It will no longer be a problem. I'll do most of the work".

        Wouldn't you be interested?

        The trick is to find a balance between your fee and how much time you'll put to help someone. Fee needs to be affordable to your client.

        I seriously wanted to target only 2 - 3 sales at the most, but I got like 6 total. It was a bit overwhelming to deliver the service.

        I think one of the biggest mistakes people do when they try to make money online is they follow all these "guru" systems and forget about very basic things like care, compassion and respect for people. Don't treat your list as a "list" - treat them as human beings who would love some help. And they will be rewarding you very well for that.

        Just try to ask yourself: what kind of help they need? How would they like to get it? How much they would want to pay? Can you do it for them? If not, what would be the closest alternative?

        And just write them a personal email.

        Be their savior! And expect miracles.

    There is actually a way to help your list at the same time sell to your list without using the 3 content 1 promotion or in this case 4 to 5 content 1 promotion rule. You can be helpful and suggestive at the same time and your list would not even see it as a promtion. For example,

    day 1 you make a video covering the number #1 mistake in doing SEO for your webiste and then you tell your list tommorow they will receive part 2 of that video.

    day 2: you create another video suggesting a solution to the first video.

    OR
    Day 1 : create an article or video covering 3 products that do XXX and then give your opinion on which one you think does the best job. Now all these have their respective affiliate links in case the reader wants to learn more about them and if they buy thats money for you.

    Now what you have done here is you have provided value and sold in the same email. There are different combinations of this method so that its not always the same type of email you can variate it anyway you like.

    For example,
    day 1 : survey your list to see what they are interested in learning and their number 1 biggest challenge online then...

    day 3: suggest to them a product that gives the solution to their number 1 biggest challenge based on their feedback from the survey.

    In my opinion this is much better than 3 informative and 1 promotion because these are all informative while suggesting/promoting

    Ok, Thanks for sharing with us. I think it would be helpful to add some actual sales numbers into the mix. People like to see figures because they become objectives, of sort.

    Thanks though,

    Congratulations for your success!

    I have two email lists, and I think that both are similar in many ways. One is bigger and based on giving a free ebook to my subscribers, which gives them real information. The other one is based on a simple opt-in box at my second website. I send them to my first site, where they can find all my free ebooks.

    If you can give good information to your readers, they will be interested subscribers and open your email messages. You will be considered an expert. You will be respected and trusted. Of course, many subscribers will be indifferent, but some of them will be your fans, followers, customers, and friends.

    Hi,

    1. Keep your squeeze page simple and easy to opt into

    2. Give away the best free gift you possibly can

    3. Send that free gift in email 0 with a little message and introduction to yourself

    4. Follow up again asking them whether they got their free gift okay

    5. Follow up again thanking them for joining your list and that the next email is going to help them build their business.

    6. Send another email with the free information you promised and have that free information linked to your "SHOP WINDOW" so to speak.

    This allows your subscribers to see what your products can offer and you haven't even tried to hard sell them in anyway.

    The free gift is displayed on the same page so they are comfortable with you offering them an option to purchase your paid offers because there is no sell, sell, sell approach.

    Hope this helps anyone!

    To all here have a great day!

    Regards
    Gavin
