The affiliate marketer can take advantage of the fact that list building is less of a mystery these days. You can actually find free list building courses online. What a relief. These were the same courses being offered at $497 and upwards.
I believe one reason for this is due to list building software/tools being a lot more affordable and easier to use. Thanks also to the product owners who have decided to share their list building expertise at an affordable cost.
You don't even need to know html to set up a squeeze page and you can sign up to an autoresponder service for under $20 per month. Clearly, this is great news for the affiliate marketer who can now begin building a list from scratch and maximise traffic sent to his/her affiliate product website.
As an affiliate marketer what you need to do now is send your traffic to your squeeze page then send it to your affiliate product website. Simple. This is how to make better affiliate commissions.
So here in simple terms is how to build a profitable list in quick time and make meaningful commissions.
Firstly you need a landing page and preferably one with a squeeze page. The sole function of the squeeze page is to capture names and email addresses of visitors. They either opt in or leave the site. Your visitors details will then be sent you your autoresponder.
Your autoresponder enables you to send your subscribers automated responses and carefully crafted follow up messages. This allows you to keep in contact with your visitors and build a relationship with them. You must bear in mind that this is not a selling campaign.
You must drive traffic to your squeeze page. There are two main ways to do this. Free or paid. You have to decide which one best suits you. Free takes time for instance article marketing and Pay Per Click advertising costs money but can drive traffic to your site very quickly. You must however choose the right keywords to make this happen.
Now once you get subscribers you have to help them succeed online. Like I mentioned earlier it is not all about trying to sell something. It is a whole new mindset. You simply can't go with the attitude of squeezing out dollars from your list at every turn. Do this and they will hit the unsubscribe button real quick.
The beauty of having a list is that once you build trust with your list you can now make product recommendations. In other words send your subscribers back to your affiliate website. You will find a much higher response which of course will mean more commissions for you.
Are you an affiliate marketer? Is not having a list the reason why you have not been making the commissions from your affiliate products as you should? Now you can build a list and succeed online. What are you waiting for?
