Have you been struggling to figure out how to generate revenue with email affiliate marketing? If so, then this blog post is for you! In this article, we will cover the basics of building your email list and how it can help you grow a successful online business. We also have some tips on what not to do when putting together your email campaign.
Is Email Affiliate List Building Difficult?
In the world of marketing, list building is a crucial task. It can seem like an insurmountable challenge for some people but it doesn’t have to be! Tools are available that will help you build your subscriber base quickly and easily – all without breaking out into hives or requiring expensive graphic design skill-sets. Adding one simple “opt-in box” onto your website could just do wonders with increasing visitor engagement while also giving those who opt in access content as a “thank you” reward, they can enjoy as well.
You can build a large list as well! It’s easy with the right tools. To start, you will need an autoresponder for sending email automatically and code that creates your opt in box on your website, commonly provided using WordPress plugins.
There are many ways to create lists of potential customers who have shown interest before, by either clicking one link within an email campaign they received from your product (or service) advertising, or by their entering some personal details at check out time (when they buy a product) etc.
In order to entice people, you must provide them with something of value. This can be as simple and straightforward as a free report or video about your product or service, that also expands information and shares its benefits!
You should consider the value your subscribers provide you when it comes time to ask for their email address. The time they invest in reading and responding will far outweigh what you spend on lead magnets, so don’t shortchange yourself!
Your List is Your Treasure!
Subscribers to your niche specific email list is like having an instant connection with your targeted market. It will increase the value of any sale you make, as well as provide more efficiency when it comes time for conversions and marketing efforts! If you don’t leverage this opportunity you’ll lose all the value this would have added. Value, that in many way, reaches far beyond “traditional” marketing initiatives.
Remember: “You’re capturing the attention of people interested in what you have going on!”
Each person on your list has a value and if someone is ever interested in purchasing your business or blog they will also be aware of this. Understandably, subscribers are more valuable than fans because each subscriber represents an opportunity for potential customers to buy into what you’re doing!
I can’t stress enough how important having an associated email newsletter with the right kind deal every week (or month) really helps bring new people into your network, who might not have been otherwise exposed but now want access as quickly possible.
Reaping the Rewards!
When you extend respect to your list members and provide them with valuable content, within the email messages you send, not only will they be more likely than ever before to check out any offers that come their way; it’s also possible some of those who receive this kind treatment from YOU could end up purchasing!
From past experience: As soon as I started sending my marketing email (for other projects I launched) in a respectful manner – always making sure they were full-fledged professional texts rather than just basic copy & paste newsletters–not only did response rates increase by 20% – 25% or so (which is absolutely fantastic), it resulted in more people sharing those email messages (which helped grow the list even more).
If you want to grow your income to a substantial earning with email marketing, then it helps to keep in mind that email is more direct and personal than traditional advertising. Your subscribers know they can trust what comes out of you which means that if someone bought something on one of your lists before – chances are really good there will be thousands more who would also like your product or service!
Always Look Forward…
For list building to be effective, it’s important to always have a long-term mindset. Why? Again, building a viable list is growing an asset over time, which in turn grows your revenue.
It’s no secret that the best marketing is done when you have a big list. You’ll invest time, effort (and money if needed) in order to build your individual mailing database but think about how successful this will make YOU! The long term benefits are worth every penny spend.
