Autoresponders – How to Make Autoresponders Work for You

You have been told an autoresponder is necessary to create long-term viable business on the internet.

But why?

An autoresponder campaign is probably the single biggest differentiating factor between the success of the big boys (and big girls) in internet marketing.

An autoresponder allows you to remind your visitors and send them back to your web sites again and again and again. If a visitor makes it to your web site and does not buy from you, if he or she does not become a part of your autoresponder campaign, you have likely lost him or her forever. Forever. Unless you pay for the click again. And by the way, just because you aren’t paying Google AdWords for the clicks, you are still paying. You pay when you write the article and it takes you 20 minutes of your time. You pay when you send out a JV mailing. You pay when you advertise in an ezine. You pay.

So make the most of your visitors. Give them an irresistible offer to opt in to your email list. Then give them irresistible information repeatedly so they will not dare leave your mailing list. Give them the best, they will never leave you. Send them junk, you give them to someone else. You choose.

Send them quality emails. Recommend only the best products. Send them freebies from time to time. Court them. Win them for life. Autoresponders rule.

How Fast Can You Start Making Money Online?

One of my subscribers asked me the following question:

How quick can one start making money when one is desperate?

Here is my response:

I am going to jump right into this one first. That is a great question, and contrary to all the hype you see online about getting rich overnight, this is not a get rich quick business, although some people do get rich in a hurry. Some really do. But it is an inconsistent business when you are first getting started. If you have a list or are promoting a product already, you know that some days you only get 3 subscribers and some you may get 100. Some days you do not sell anything, and others you get four orders for $67 each. When you have 100 sales a day, then if it fluctuates by 10 sales daily it is no big deal–one day you get 90, the next 100, the 110, etc, and maybe down to 80 on another day. But when you have a small list and only 100 visitors a day–you get 1 one day, none the next, 2 the next day–not enough to pay the bills.

So if you are really desperate, and you cannot afford to go a few months without much income if it happens that way, then you probably shouldn’t be gambling on the internet to make you rich fast. But if you are not so desperate that you can take a few months and really learn the ropes, then maybe if you work really hard you can build a business.

You see, I think that one of the biggest disservices online is when someone sells something with the premise that if you will just do this and this exactly like I have done it, then you will get rich. What we can do online is show you what we have done, so you can model it. For example, if I share with 100 people the exact same methods that I use, and tell you to go out and do the exact same thing, what is going to happen? Have you ever gotten 7 of the exact same email from 7 different lists that you are on? The market simply becomes saturated with the one product that is claimed to be the end all and be all. So all you can really do is model what someone else is doing, who is successful.

I hate to say this too, but I do not believe it is possible to set up a true ‘cookie cutter’ online system. If you see a web site that promises that all you have to do is promote that one web site and you will get rich, I think that is bunk. Sure, if you are one of 10 people promoting it, yes, maybe you will make money. But if I sell the same web site to 1000 people, what happens? Nobody gets rich.

Think about this. I could sell my entire business. I could sell all my articles, all my auto responder campaigns, and all my squeeze pages. If I sold them to one person, he could do just as well as I do with them. If I sold them to 2 people, maybe they could do just as well. But what would happen if I sold them to 100 people? You know the answer.

Affiliate Revenue – How to Maximize Your Affiliate Revenue for Optimal Affiliate Profits

You have been online for awhile, working on creating your own product. Maybe you have one already. Maybe you have a list already. But you have no income.

You need affiliate revenue.

What is affiliate revenue? Affiliate revenue is income you derive from the promotion of affiliate products.

I earn nearly one dollar per month per subscriber on one of my affiliate revenue email campaigns. How do I do it?

I simply build a relationship with my subscribers by offering them top-notch information about which they are hungry and thirsty, then I recommend they visit specially-selected affiliate web sites.

Why do I say, ‘specially-selected’? Because you cannot use just any affiliate program.

Your affiliate program must meet the following criteria before you should promote a product:

1) The product must be exceptional and be backed up with remarkable customer service.

2) The product sales page must do a phenomenal job of transferring 1) to your subscribers.

3) The affiliate program must be honest, and pay exactly when it says it will. Affiliate income must be consistent to you.

4) The affiliate product must mesh well with your own product, whether your own product is already created or just in the works.

Once you have selected an affiliate product with which to maximize your affiliate revenue, recommend the sales page or product to your subscribers. Do not sell them. Recommend them.
