It used to be that you could just send traffic (visitors) to an offer (sales page) and get decent conversions.
The game has changed a bit and now, all the top marketers realize that they’re much better off sending their traffic to what’s called a “squeeze page” first.
A squeeze page is designed to get the visitor to input their email in exchange for some sort of giveaway. We call this giveaway a “lead magnet”.
By giving their email, they’re voluntarily giving you permission to send them follow up messages. Don’t confused this with spam. This is permission based marketing, and the subscriber will even confirm their subscription by clicking a link within your initial message.
Email spam on the other hand is when promotional messages are sent to people who didn’t willingly sign up. Surprisingly, spamming works (or else nobody would be doing it), but you risk having your earnings seized and your account banned by the affiliate network if you get caught.
Permission based email marketing is highly effective, and building a list of people that trust you is extremely valuable for any business, both online and off.
You can literally make thousands of dollars in commissions from sending a single email if you do it right.
As for how to do it right, I’ve actually put together a short course outlining the steps involved in getting things set up (landing page, auto-responder etc.).
That probably sounds confusing, but I really tried to simplify things in the course and I keep it fairly straight forward.
If you’re interested, click here to check out an outline of the material, then buy it if you want access. It’s just 47 bucks.
Why am I charging for it?
Basically, I decided to charge for it because people don’t value free shit haha
If you’re not willing to part with 47 dollars to obtain information that could potentially generate thousands and free you from your day job, then there’s no way you would go through the steps necessary to get an email marketing campaign set up in the first place. Just think of it as a small barrier to entry.
Plus, having some “skin in the game” as they say increases the chances that you’ll actually take action. I’ll most likely be raising the price soon for that very reason.
