The answer is pretty straightforward. It is a numbers game folks.
If you can send a million sets of eyes to your affiliate offer, you will make some sales.
If you send one hundred thousand sets of eyes to your affiliate offer that were looking for your type of offer, you will make more sales.
That’s called targeted traffic. And list building from day one can bring your affiliate marketing business to profitability and success so much sooner by letting you gather leads from people who have asked for you to send them information.
This will allow you to skew the numbers in your favor. The people on your list are already predisposed to pay attention to your advertising. They may have already purchased from you to have gotten on your list. They are interested in your types of offers (or they would not have subscribed). All these things make them assets of the highest caliber to your growing business.
For these reasons, integrate list building into all of your marketing efforts. Here are some tips to help accomplish this:
- Put up a good web form in your site that immediately follows the end of your content.
Make your homepage impressive.
Provide good service and products.
- Keep a clean and private list.
Never lose the trust your customers have entrusted you. If you provide e-mails to others and they get spammed, many will probably unsubscribe to you. Remember, a good reputation will drive in more traffic and subscribers as well as strengthen the loyalty of your customers.
Remember, all those program owners who claim you don’t need a email list to be successful in their system, well, they got your email address first. That is because they know the value of list building.
