List Building: A Profitable Venture
If you post high-quality articles on your blog that meet people’s needs, then people will trust you, and only then can you start marketing your affiliate products. This is because people start signing up for your newsletter when they discover the ingenuity of your information. You should have a form set up on your website that contains the names and email addresses of your blog’s interested readers. Setting up a form for people to sign up for your newsletter will help you create a list that you can monetize anytime you want.
Affiliate marketing products become easy and profitable when you have an email subscriber list. This is a list of people who have subscribed to your newsletter, either on your website or through a compression page that you have promoted. How do you get subscribers through your website or blog? It’s very easy to do. You need to find a good autoresponder company and sign up with them, there are many, but as a beginner, I highly recommend list-wire as they provide you with the free auto responder feature that will help you grow your business. When you sign up with list-wire, you need to log into your account, create a web form, and place it on your website. Every time someone fills out the form on your blog, that information is sent to your autoresponder on List=wire. You can see the list of real people who have subscribed to your newsletter on your list-wire account. This is your list; they are your fans; they trusted you enough to leave you their email addresses. You can also get subscribers by creating a compression page and placing an autoresponder form on the page. You should motivate them to give you their email addresses by offering them a free e-book or service.
Listing should be an ongoing process if you want to keep making money from affiliate marketing. This list is your gold mine, you can send or advertise any product on your list at any time, and because they have to know about you, even trust you, it’s fair to expect a percentage of them to buy from you. When making the list, make sure you don’t constantly advertise things for sale, try to advertise gifts as well, and build more trust by offering them high-quality products.
