First of all, what is an email list?
An email list is a list of email addresses that a business owner collects. That way, he can market over and over to those email addresses.
Let’s not talk about successful internet businesses who are making 6-figures per year with no email list.
I figure they are as happy as someone who earns the same amount with an email list.
If you’re a small internet business owner, I’m talking to you.
You need an email list. And you need to learn how it works, ASAP.
If you’re an affiliate marketer…
Imagine sending a bunch of traffic to an offer.
Then they didn’t buy. What now?
Well, you can just send another bunch of traffic, you’re crazy rich anyway, you can buy unlimited traffic, why are you even doing this?
But if you don’t have a budget, it’ll be better if you have a way to contact your leads, and try to sell your offer to them again via email.
Having a way to contact your leads over and over is a must. Your traffic just might not be ready the first time they saw the offer.
What if Elena, one of your leads, wasn’t ready to buy yet the first time she saw your offer?
And what if she’ll be getting some cash somewhere, and the first thing she’ll do is buy the thing that you promoted?
But you’re not there anymore…
You’re not there to present your offer the day Elena got her extra cash.
It’s nice if your affiliate cookie is still with her, you’ll still get the sale…
But what if she decided to read reviews instead? The reviewer will be the one to get the commission, not you.
If you had an email list, you should be able to email Elena again the day she got her extra cash, and chances are she’ll open your email, and chances are she’ll buy from you.
“But Jeff, how do I start?“
Great question. Here’s how:
- Create a lead magnet that’s relevant to your offer.
- Create an opt in page where people can sign up in exchange for your lead magnet.
- Create an autoresponder series or ‘welcome sequence’.
- Once that’s all done, you just have to learn how to write better emails so you can make money by sending broadcasts regularly.
Seems like a lot of work? Yes it is, but it’s worth it.
Your welcome sequence for example, you’ll write it once, but it’ll sell over and over for you.
You can make money while you sleep!
If you need a detailed course about starting from scratch and making money from an email list, this is the course I’d recommend:
I’m not a beginner, but I got a lot of value from that course.
If you want to make serious money online, you need a list.
And it doesn’t matter if you have no experience writing emails etc… that course will show you exactly what you have to do.
