From boosting email opt-in
rates so you're able to build a massive list of targeted buyers, to maximizing your affiliate commissions with
powerful (yet simple) strategies that are very easy to follow, we'll explore some of the fastest and easiest
ways of doubling (even tripling) your online income with very little effort.
So without further delay,
let's get started!
Boost Signup Rates
If you've been struggling to
get subscribers to join your mailing list, it's time to take a closer look at your squeeze page.
What is the first thing that
people see when they visit your squeeze page? Are they given a good
reason to join your list? Are you targeting the right audience with
your squeeze page offer or overall marketing message?
More often than not, your
squeeze page offer will make or break your ability to funnel subscribers into your mailing list. Slapping up a good looking squeeze page with an opt-in box just isn't enough.
You need to give your visitor's a reason as to why they should hand over their name and email
It's likely that you've heard
of the power of a valuable incentive offer, but in case you haven't, an incentive offer is simply an exchange of
information. Your visitor subscribes to your list, giving you their
contact information, and in return, you provide them with some sort of free offer. This could be a free
download, newsletter, tips, discounts, or anything else that appeals to your market segment.
The problem is that many
people overlook the importance of a high quality, unique incentive offer. Keep in mind that a powerful incentive will not only boost sign up rates, but
it will help you set yourself apart from all of the other email marketer's in your niche. So, how can you instantly increase your squeeze page signup
Offer over $97 in valuable -
original content, and add the "retail price" to your squeeze page!
Because many people who are
focusing on building a list aren't willing to go the extra mile in delivering real value when it comes to their
incentive offer. In fact, most people look at incentive offers as "throwaway" products - which they believe
they'd otherwise never be able to sell. So, they give it
The problem with this is that if you don't really believe your own incentive is valuable, your visitor's are likely
to feel the same way. Giving away an outdated product? Offering a
stale ebook that's based on private label content? If you don't pay
attention to the quality of your incentive offer, not only will your signup rates suffer, but your overall
reputation in your market will as well.
Do you really want your
subscriber's first impression of you to be based on some cheap, watered down, low quality product that you're
offering on your squeeze page?
When it comes to email
marketing, your creditability - your brand - your image, and how well you're trusted, begins with that first
Your offer, your marketing
messages and your broadcasts will either form a strong connection between your company and your subscriber's, or
it will drive people away. Don't make the common mistake of
overlooking the power of your incentive offer. It represents the
doorway for visitor's to become part of your online community, and you need to do it right.
If you turn things around,
and offer something you could easily sell for $97.00, you'll be blown away at just how quickly you'll be able to
build your list with very little effort involved. And remember, a higher opt-in rate means that you'll need far
less traffic in order to build a monster-sized email list!
rights to a high quality product that is not normally given away in your market and offer it on your squeeze
While this can be based on
private label rights content, make sure that you tweak the material and repackage it with a fresh face (new
cover - new table of contents and extra value) before delivering it to your list. You could also create an
extensive compilation of training material derived from quality private label sources such as multiple reports
in one package, all focusing on your main topic.
Remember, your incentive
offer needs to be of tremendous value, but also needs to be strictly targeted towards your market. If you are
planning on running an email list that offers information and products on social marketing - your incentive
offer should be based around social marketing.
If you need to target
different segments of a market, consider creating an email list for each specific group. Each email list
should have a theme, making it easy to deliver the kind of information that your subscriber's are
Boost Open Rates
Once you've begun to build an
email list, the next step is to start communicating with your subscriber's. Even if you only have a small group
of subscriber's, you need to open the channel of communication early on, connecting to each person as if you are
speaking to them directly. Don't wait for your list to build up before you make contact, otherwise you run the
risk of subscribers' forgetting who you are, or why they joined your list.
But regular communication is
only the first step in doubling your income through email marketing. In order to make more money, you need to
maximize your email open rates - so that more people see (and respond) to your offer!
One of the easiest ways to do
this is by creating motivational subject lines for every email or broadcast you send out. While you want to avoid the spam filters, you need each email subject
line to provoke curiosity, to engage your audience and to motivate them to click on your email and read your
Don't be afraid to experiment
with different subject lines, because every subscriber base will respond differently to certain 'triggers'. You
can be as controversial or as conservative as you are comfortable with, as long as you are exploiting the power
of curiosity, because it's a very strong motivator! Keep your email
subject lines short, descriptive and provide the reader with a reason to open your email.
Note: Avoid the "Re: Subject Line" approach because while you want to use
curiosity-driven subject lines, you never want to outright mislead your subscriber's.
The "Re" subject line tactic
is designed to make your subscribers believe that your email is a personal response to a previous conversation,
and while it can be effective at boosting open rates, it can also be a major cause for people to unsubscribe
from your list.
If they feel tricked, conned
or lied to, they will stop opening your emails, so focus on engaging your audience and connecting with your
target market with fun and entertaining strategies, rather than with questionable, unprofessional
Increase List Size
We've covered a few ways of
boosting open rates and signup rates, but in order for either of these strategies to work, you need people who
actually see your offer! This is where increasing list size comes
into play because it's all about driving high quality - targeted traffic to your squeeze pages so that you can
flood your mailing list with new, active subscribers!
What is an easy way to
instantly funnel quality traffic to your squeeze page?
Ad swaps have been
responsible for fuelling countless new email lists with thousands of quality leads, because not only is it an
affordable method of securing subscribers, but it's one of the easiest ways to jam your list with red-hot,
You see, ad swaps make it
very easy to directly target your market because rather than funnel traffic to your squeeze page from a dozen
different sources, you're able to tap into existing email lists where the work of establishing communication and
conditioning buyers has already been done by the list owner!
The objective with ad
swaps is an exchange of resources.
The key to a successful
ad swap is in finding marketers who are at the same level in marketing as you are, because you'll want to make
sure that you can deliver an equal number of views and subscribers, as they are going to give to
While ad swaps can be a
basic advertisement exchange, where someone agrees to send out an ad for your product and you do the same in
return, the most effective ad swaps focus on exchanging FREE and VALUABLE information and
For example, if you are
involved in the work at home market; there is an abundance of ad swap opportunities available to you. Think
about the countless start-up work at home sites catering to single parents, or the work at home mom communities.
Many of these websites
are just starting to generate traffic, and are building a very loyal subscriber base of repeat visitors and
If you were to contact
one of these publishers and offer them the opportunity to provide a valuable free resource to their subscribers,
chances are, they'll be responsive.
They get to provide a
free, valuable resource to their subscribers (which makes them look good and builds positive awareness within
their market), and in exchange, you get free advertising.
It doesn't matter what
market you are involved in, there's bound to be ad swap opportunities available to you.
Of course, you will want
to build a decent size list yourself, before you approach potential partners so that you are able to deliver a
service in return.
Even if you have a
smaller list of only 200-300, if you have a high open-rate and your subscribers are responsive, you have a
viable asset to offer a potential ad swap partner.
When you're ready to find
potential ad swap partners, begin by searching your market for start-up websites since these are often the
easiest to approach.
And keep in mind that
even if you contact someone with a list that's much bigger than your own, autoresponder accounts allow for easy
segmenting, so the list owner could choose to email only a certain number of subscribers, based on what you are
able to deliver in return.
communities and groups are all great ways of quickly locating potential ad swap partners in your market, so take
time to do your research and compile a listing of 20-30 potential partners.
Be honest with your
numbers! Tell them how many subscribers you have, what your
open-rate and response rate is as well as what your newsletter focus is. You want to make sure that your offer
matches what your partner is offering.
When emailing potential
ad swap partners, focus on THEM.
How they benefit, what
you can do for them. You want to make each email as personal and customized as possible, including how you are a
subscriber of their email list (and make sure you are), and remember, you aren't just looking to secure a
marketing partnership, but a relationship with a key player in your market.
That relationship can go
well beyond a one-time broadcast!
Here are a few resources
to help you get started:
Boost Commission Earnings
If you're involved in
affiliate marketing, we're going to show you a fast and easy way to instantly maximize your commission-based
You know how other affiliates
are simply directly potential customer's through their links straight to the merchant's website? Well, not only
are they decreasing their commissions because they're failing to give customer's a reason WHY they should
purchase the product, but they are losing out on a very powerful opportunity to build their own businesses and
further their own brand, while making money promoting third party products!
You see, those who work hard
to become trustworthy, recognized affiliate marketer's always make more money than those who simply direct
people through their affiliate links. It might sound like a lot more work to work on building awareness within
your market as a trusted source, but by doing so you'll be able to maximize your income while setting yourself
up for long-term success.
Here's one of the easiest
ways to warm up potential buyers and create an irresistible offer that they can't refuse: Give them more bang for their buck!
Bonus offers need to tie
in directly with what's being offered and offer CLEAR and DIRECT value. In fact, your bonus offer should always
include a “value price” associated with it, so that potential customers know exactly what the bonus is worth,
and how much money they are able to save by purchasing through your affiliate link.
Your bonus offer needs to
be either exclusive, limited or both. In many cases, your bonus offer will be THE leading factor
in whether a potential customer chooses to purchase the product through your affiliate link or someone else’s,
so you need to spend some time creating a compelling offer that is not only valuable, but irresistible!
exclusive bonus offers, no other affiliate can replicate your offer because you own full rights to what is being
This may include unique
reports, content or video tutorials that you either created yourself, or hired out to freelancers.
With limited bonuses, you
are offering access to your offer only for a limited time, or to a limited number of customers. This employs the
‘scarcity’ tactic, which motivates people into taking quick action because they don’t want to miss out on a
It’s very important to use ‘motivators’ with every bonus offer.
If people feel that
there’s no rush, or no exclusivity to the bonus, chances are they’ll continue looking around for a better or
bigger bonus, offered by another affiliate, so take your time when creating your bonus and make certain that
it’s relevant, and extends the value of their main purchase.
For example, your bonus
offers should serve as auxiliary components to the main product. If you were promoting
BloggingToTheBank.com, you could offer bonus items that included Wordpress themes, Wordpress video tutorials, or
maybe content packs that new bloggers could use to jumpstart their websites.
Analyze the product you
are promoting and determine what is missing or lacking in the main product. Then, create your bonus product
around that unfilled need or demand.
When creating your bonus
product, you don't have to develop it yourself. You can minimize costs by using high quality private label
content, or other types of content that allows for distribution. You can then create compilations from existing
material, or develop extensive bundles, collections and packages that fit with the product you are
Boost Conversion Rates
So, you might not be the best
copywriter on the planet. That doesn't mean that you can't maximize conversion rates with just a couple simple
'tweaks' to your sales pages. In fact, many of us absolutely struggle with creating copy, but if you're unable
to outsource the work to experienced copywriters, you're stuck wading through paragraphs of copy, trying to
drive up response rates.
The truth is, there is a very
simple guideline to creating great copy, and while it's important to test your copy (split testing is key), you
can easily create a high converting page just by following these tips:
1 - Speak TO your audience, not at
Your copy needs to hit home,
as if you are talking personally, and directly to each visitor. Avoid the hype - gimmick based phrases never
work at driving home your message. You want your copy to be authentic to who you are, and what you have to
Be honest, and keep your copy
focused on how your audience benefits from what you are offering.
Great copy is all about pushing hot buttons and crafting your sales copy so that it speaks to their wants and
2 - Know your audience
This goes without saying. If
you know your audience, you know what makes them tick. Since your copy needs to cover the most important needs,
wants and desires, it's important that you write your copy from your customer's perspective. Focus on benefits, not features.
Tell them why they need your product and write your copy in such a way that your audience feels as though you
created your product just for them.
3 - Break it up
Avoid run-on paragraphs and
sentences. You need to keep copy tight, and on topic. Paragraphs
should never run more than four lines, and do your best to break it up so that you are offering 1-3 short
paragraphs before injecting bullet points, a sub title, an image, graph, or anything else that keeps them glued
to the page.
Long pages of text can be
overwhelming to a visitor who wants a quick snapshot of what you are offering, and whether it's what they are
looking for or not, so keep page skimmers in mind and create your copy (even long copy) around those who read -
scroll - read. Not only will your copy be stronger but it will be
far easier to write.
4 - Implement multiple call to action
Many new copywriters make the
mistake of only including one order button at the bottom of the sales page, assuming that people will either
read the entire page or they'll simply scroll to the bottom.
You should always implement
multiple call to action prompts throughout your copy, weaving urgency within the different sections of your
copy. This is also a great way to try out different call to action
commands, such as "Order Now", or "Buy Now" or "Click Here For Instant Access", and so on.
Regardless of how well your
copy converts, you always want to split test it against other variations. While this takes a bit of time and
effort, it's the easiest way to see what is working, and what needs to be improved.

your sales pages by signing up for a free Google Analytics account at http://www.Google.com/Analytics.
Seek Out Networking Opportunities
There’s no easier way to
solidify your place in your market than by networking with experienced and established business owners who
already have an audience, and who have already worked hard to build their online business.
Networking with established business owners allows you to piggyback off of their success and can save you an
incredible amount of time in building brand awareness.
In fact, you’ll be able to “siphon” credibility just by the connections you make within your market!
So, how do you seek out networking opportunities in your niche?
Become an active member of “live” sites and community boards where people in your niche congregate. Look for
established forums, social media sites, and authority blogs where you can join in the conversation, engage your
audience, and get noticed!
Tip: Join http://www.JVNotifyPro.com for open networking opportunities and
joint venture partnerships available through affiliate programs and upcoming launches.
One of the easiest ways to get noticed by key players in your market is to begin by promoting their offers as an
affiliate! Not only will this help you scout out potential networking
opportunities, but it will give you invaluable hands-on experience in marketing that you can use towards promoting
your own products.
Build Passive Income Sites
An effective strategy that
will maximize your online income comes in the form of “passive income sites”, primarily sites that generate
recurring income from one customer base.
One of the more popular models for passive income sites is a membership-based program. You build it once – generate
traffic to it, and in turn, you can maximize your online income instantly, through recurring payments generated by
every member who joins your site!
Membership sites are very easy to create and manage, even if you’ve never done it before. You simply need to build
a membership site in an evergreen market so that you’re able to consistently work towards building your members
base while ensuring that your offer stays relevant for many years to come.
Then, to simplify the process of building, managing and maintaining your website, you can put membership software
to work for you!
With a powerful, robust
membership based software package, you’ll be able to create a feature laden membership program that is easy to
update and depending on the software you choose, you can further maximize your income by implementing back-end
offers, one time offers, and “upgrade options” that give your members additional access or enhanced options,
should they choose them.
Best of success!
