You may or may not already manage your own email newsletter (AKA
"eZine" - short for "email Magazine").
If you do, this article will help you to make more money with
it today - no matter how big your list is!
If you don't, read this to learn why you should begin building
a subscriber list immediately.
As you surely already know, your newsletter is a must have key
to your success online. I don't care what you do - not building
and maintaining an email newsletter is suicidal.
Now, everyone knows that much and you will hear many speak these
same words - but you rarely here folks talk about the real value
of your list. That is, how do you use it to really make money?
What I'm about to show you applies to...
"All Links are Not Created Equal." This is a phrase
I coined in my marketing course years back.
The idea here is that the state of mind of your customer when
leading to your site is crucial in determining whether or not
he will buy. This is a natural extension of what salesmen call
"qualifying". That is, you need to determine before
wasting your time, whether the prospect is ready
to go or not.
Pretty basic salesmanship 101 stuff here. How does it apply to
Well, chances are, your prospects don't even realize that they
need your product or service. What may be obvious to you, may
be totally unknown to your prospect.
Your newsletter can be used to educate your prospects about the
value of your product or service. That is, they don't know they
need it - so educate them!
Ad educated prospect will come to your site "pre-qualified"
and ready to be sold. He knows he needs what you've got. All he
needs now is a little nudge.
If the content of your newsletter is good, and not just a sales
pitch, over time you will gain the respect of your readers. Once
you've gained their respect, they will be more likely to listen
to what you have to say (they are pre-qualified to receive your
opinion - see how this all fits
When you recommend a product or service to them, they will arrive
at the sales site for that product or service pre-qualified and
ready to buy. Your opinion means a lot and will go a long way
on the path of making the sale.
The application of this concept to affiliate programs is quite
obvious - just endorse the products you are offering, right?
What if you are selling a product or service of your own?
If you've read my course you remember the concept of the "Internet
Marketing Battle Plan". The 5th and final tactic in your
Battle Plan is "Working the Back End".
Once you've sold your product to your customer, continue to sell
related products to that customer as long as you can. These don't
have to be your own products - they can be products from other
companies selling related products...
Heck, they can even be your competitors!
Use the power of your endorsement for these products to sell
Endorse and Educate and you will always send pre-qualified and
excited prospects to your sites.
Do you manage your newsletter by hand? Or is the tool you are
using to manage your newsletter unreliable and difficult to use?
If so, properly automating your newsletter will make you money.
It's simple. Automation of your newsletter management will save
you time and spare you the mental anguish of having to worry about
your list. In the end you'll have more time and mental energy
to apply to your other projects. Or, if you're lazy, it might
just give you some extra time in front of the tube!
Either way, you want to make sure that your automation solution
for your newsletter:
- Is highly configurable.
You want it to be able to grow and change as you grow
- Is reliable and located in a trusted spot.
You can only guess what happens to your newsletter when it's
hosted on a remote site, or when it's managed by scripts you
don't understand. A solution you run locally solves this problem
by putting you in control.
- Handles subscribe and unsubscribe requests efficiently.
This will save you hours of time.
- Can schedule and automate the mailing of your newsletter.
What if you go on vacation or have a family emergency? Does
you business stop? Of course not!
It simply can't. You need a management tool that can run things
while you're gone.
