If I had one piece of advice for people trying to earn money online it would be build your list!! Everyone has heard the saying the money is in the list and its true. I have to say that I wish I understood list building when I first started online. So many people start trying to market products and services but never create a capture or squeeze page.
If you are a newbie or someone who has never created a capture page, set up an auto responder, and you do not have a list this article is for you. Think about all the major corporations today. Whenever you try to buy something online they want your information. It always says please enter your name and email here. It is a lot easier to market to people who are intersted in what you are selling than complete strangers. This is what a list does for you. I remember when I was a kid we use to receive the Sears Catalog.
I lived in a rural area when I was a kid, this was great for my parents at the time. They would buy certain things for me and my brothers and now Sears had us on their list. We would get flyers in the mail pertaining to our buying tendencies. There is nothing different today except the technology we use. All of the internet experts have lists they market to. Over the years they have captured peoples info and know exactly what they are looking for. I have told students of mine that having a list is like having a Federal Reseserve printing press. You can print your own money!!
For example say you have 5000 people on your list. You send out an email blast promoting a product. You get a response of 5% clicking on your link (very low response) and 5% buy your product. Here is the math: 5% of 5000 is 250 and 5% of 250 is 12.5. The price of your product is $25 so you just made $312.5 Not bad for sending an email!!! That is $39 per hour!!!
A lot better than most 9-5 jobs pay. To get started you need to have an auto responder and a capture page. I only recommend two…Aweber and GetResponse. These two companies have been around for a long time and they have a stellar record for support and training! In regards to capture pages you can create a free one within 10 minutes.
