Do you Sell through a Blog Or Direct Mail?

Hey there warriors!

I have recently been experimenting with selling via my Blog, as opposed to direct mailing as I have heard plenty of buzz about building better relationships through blogs etc.

So currently my funnel would look like this:
Opt in-->>Email autoresponder sequence sent to subscriber to link to blog page-->>Blog Page presells a product or service-->> subscriber buys it.

Do you think its over complicating the process and should I just stick with doing promos through my emails?

What have you guys done?

    I send my list back through my site also. My main reason is because i cant put direct affiliate links in my emails, but i think sending back to your blog might actually warm them up into buyers anyways.

      Right its a bit of a pain when your Autorepsonder doesnt allow affiliate links.

      I dont have that problem though!

      I just think to myself "what would I like to do if I was the prospect" and half of me says that I want to just see the offer, and the other half says that I want to read a story, a real person has written to get me to buy!

    Everything I have ever done has been generated online. However I always considered dabbling in Direct Mail. However, as I rebuild my business I am going to stick with what I know.

    It allowed me to build a huge business before and will help me build that business again.

      Fair enough too!

      Stick to one method, and preferably one that you know!

      Funnily enough when I started applying this principle I started actually making money online!

          I have actually made money with both, however the Blog takes a bit more time (because you have to manage more things, comments etc) so it takes longer to get results.

          And I meant I started making money when I started doing what I knew. B2B Marketing.

    I choose to market through e-mail, it's much more cost effective, and can run on autopilot if set up correctly.

    Tired of time affiliate marketing strategies that tell you to use logic, prioritize activities, and just "make" the time? Here's the surprising reason that doesn't work, and the reason why this one strategy actually DOES.
