Email Profits Basics: Lesson 11

June 14, 2017 Comments Off on Email Profits Basics: Lesson 11 By Admin

In the last lesson we talked about talk more about evaluating
your email campaigns. In this lesson we are going to go over
some costly email marketing mistakes you should avoid.

Many business owners who opt to try email marketing make the
mistake of believing any type of email marketing is beneficial.
This is simply not true; there are a number of mistakes business
owners can make when they organize an email marketing campaign.
Examples of these types of mistakes may include allowing
promotional materials to be tagged as spam, not following up
with promotional emails, not being prepared for an influx of
customers after an email marketing effort and not marketing
specifically to the target audience.

We will begin our discussion on email marketing mistakes with
spam. Spam is a problem which is reaching endemic proportions.
Each day Internet users are bombarded with spam from around the
world. This may include a host of unsolicited emails which are
promoting products or services the recipients may or may not be
interested in purchasing. Another critical mistake in email
marketing is to send emails that are likely to be construed to
be spam.

This may result in the email never reaching the recipient or
being deleted without being read, by the recipient. Avoiding the
potential of falling into the spam category isn’t very
difficult. It basically involves ensuring your promotional
emails contain more useful information than blatant advertising.
This will make it more likely for your emails to be taken
seriously.

Another mistake that is often made is failure to follow up on
promotional emails. Sending out emails to interested parties can
be very beneficial but it’s even more beneficial to contact the
recipients by other methods such as mail or telephone to answer
any questions they may have and offer any additional information
they may require. This type of follow up can be much more
effective than simply sending an email and not knowing if it
gets opened or read.

Business owners may also run into the mistake of not preparing
themselves for an influx of customers after an email marketing
effort. The express purpose of email marketing is to generate
increased interest in your products or services. Therefore, it’s
critical for to anticipate an increase in business and be
prepared to accommodate this increased demand for products and
services.

This is important because potential customers who have to wait
for products or services may seek out your competitors who are
better prepared to provide them with products or services
immediately.

Finally, another critical mistake made by is to not tailor an
email marketing campaign to their specific target audience. This
can be a problem because it may result in the email campaign
being less effective. Many people make this mistake because they
fall into the trap of believing that it’s more important to
reach a large audience than it’s to reach a target audience.

You may blindly send your email marketing materials to millions
of recipients and only generate a few leads. However, you could
send the same email marketing materials to a smaller group of
only a thousand recipients who all have an interest in your
products and services and will likely generate more leads from
this smaller email distribution list.

It isn’t only important to send your message to members of your
target audience but to also tailor your message to suit this
audience. Creating an email message which will appeal to a
variety of individuals isn’t as important as creating a message
which will appeal to members of your target audience.

You will need an autoresponder system to market with email I
recommend either Aweber or Getresponse for sending your email.

Make sure you look for your next lesson soon. We will be talking
about the benefits of using subtle email marketing techniques
you can use to get better results.

Email Profits Basics: Lesson 10

June 13, 2017 Comments Off on Email Profits Basics: Lesson 10 By Admin

In the last lesson we talked about combining email marketing
with other types of marketing. In this lesson we are going to
talk more about evaluating your email campaigns.

Email marketing can be a very effective way to reach a target
audience. However, your marketing efforts may not reach their
full potential unless you invest some time, energy and money
into evaluating your email marketing strategy. During this
evaluation you may determine whether or not the email marketing
is helping you to reach your goals.

You can determine if the email marketing is having an adverse
effect on your business. This lesson will discuss the importance
of evaluating your email marketing and will also offer some
useful advice on how to do this.

To say that evaluating your email marketing strategy on a
regular basis is important is a tremendous understatement.
Regularly evaluating your email marketing isn’t only important
it’s critical to the success of your business. Failure to
evaluate your email marketing strategies can have adverse
effects ranging from not producing results to causing you to
lose customers to your competitors.

Consider an email marketing campaign which isn’t effective
because it doesn’t reach the members of the target audience.
Some business owners make the fatal mistake of not taking care
to ensure their email distribution list features recipients who
are extremely interested in the products or services you offer.

Business owners who take shortcuts by purchasing large email
lists, often find their shortcut did not pay off because the
recipients of their marketing emails are simply not interested
in the products or services you offer. In this scenario the
email marketing is likely to generate very few sales or website
visits. However, reevaluating the email distribution list to
include recipients who are interested in your products or
services will likely result in significantly more sales and
website visits.

Now consider a situation in which your email marketing is being
construed as spam by the recipients. If you have taken
precautions to ensure your emails are reaching members of your
target audience but your emails seem like over the top sales
pitches, the members of your email distribution list may view
your emails as spam and not take your advertisements seriously.

When this happens the member of your email distribution list may
be more likely to seek out a competitor when they are in need of
products or services rather than making a purchase from you.

Evaluating your email marketing efforts may be formal or
informal in nature. If you have specific business goals in mind
you might want to consider using whether or not, you are on the
way to meet this goal as an indication of whether or not the
email marketing is working.
You can evaluate your email marketing efforts by soliciting
customer feedback. Asking customers for their opinions about the
email marketing campaign and whether or not they were compelled
to make a purchase because of the content, the advertising or
some other element.

Based on this information you should have a good indication of
whether or not the email marketing is effective. If it isn’t
effective you should consider making changes to create more
interest in your products or services. The changes you make
should reflect the feedback you receive though to ensure you are
not making changes which will cause even less interest from the
members of the target audience.

Make sure you look for your next lesson soon. We will be talking
about costly email marketing mistakes you should avoid.

Easy Tips To Help With Video Marketing Success

June 13, 2017 Comments Off on Easy Tips To Help With Video Marketing Success By Admin

It is hard to argue with results, and that is why video marketing has gained such a massive following in recent years. The thing to keep in mind, however, is that without sufficient knowledge of the topic, it can be hard to make it work. Study the advice that follows and make video marketing a part of your strategy today.

If you are running low on content for your video marketing, you can always make a few non-topical videos to get acquainted with your customers. Tell them stories about your life, how your business started or where you feel the industry is heading. These add a personal touch to your video marketing campaign.

If you plan to search YouTube for video, content ideas, don’t forget the ~ synonym search option. For example, “how to make ~bread” will come up with a myriad of videos on making all sorts of baked goods. This can help you create a list of items, which have been missed in the past which need a good how-to video created.

When video marketing and doing transcripts, make sure you pay attention to the proper keywords that are already part of your advertising strategy. You might also want to develop some new keywords as well. Keywords are hugely important for many reasons, and they obviously are in play too because of videos being highly searchable.

Don’t go on too long. People have short attention spans and you need to capture their interest quickly. Be direct and keep your sales pitch simple. A good rule of thumb is to keep your message to under a minute when trying to attract new customers. You can go a little longer for videos targeted at establish customers, but keep those relatively short as well.

It can be difficult to know what the topic of your video should be. One of the best ways to determine what will be successful is by looking at what others have done. How-to videos, commentary on current events, and interviews with those “in the know” are all topics that have proven interesting to web users.

A major mistake of people new to video marketing is they try to design their videos like a commercial. This is a big turn off. People do not want to watch commercials on their computers. Instead, try to make your videos about happenings in your industry or events at your business.

Your video marketing campaign will be successful if you remain consistent and creates new videos regularly. You do not have to put hours into creating a weekly video; recording yourself talking in front of a camera for ten minutes would make a good video update. Customers will subscribe to your videos if you keep using this medium.

Keep your video high quality. You don’t have to go out and spend a fortune on expensive equipment, but you want to make sure that you do shoot a quality video. Using tripods can help keep your video camera still. A poorly shot video can really damage your business, so focus on high quality.

Why not review a product in your line? Have real customers test it out and provide you with a home video of their efforts. This is a great way to give a personal feel to your brand while also showing how great your products or services to new and old customers alike.

Video marketing has gained a loyal following, largely due to its potential to create amazing results for those willing to try it. By paying close attention to the types of methods that work and those which are less successful, it is possible to get truly terrific outcomes. Keep this article close at hand as you get the ball rolling.

Sales Funnel Basics: Lesson 4

June 12, 2017 Comments Off on Sales Funnel Basics: Lesson 4 By Admin

We’re winding down to the end of this short course. But we still need to go over a few things so today we are going to jump right in and talk about your enticing offer and tweaking your funnel for better results.

 

This has to provide real value to the subscriber. It might relieve a pain, solve a problem, satisfy a burning curiosity, help them to accomplish a goal, etc., but whatever it is, it’s got to be something people WANT. If it’s so good people would PAY for it then you’ve likely got a winner.

 

Don’t confuse your prospect at this point. If your free gift has 100 different benefits for the subscriber, your offer will be diluted. Instead, focus on the ONE BIG benefit this free gift is going to give them.

 

– Thank you page

This is where you make a special offer that they will see only once. It’s a super limited time, one time only, get it now or lose it forever kind of deal. The value should be through the roof and it’s got to be worth far, far more than the asking price. As an example, this is a great place to offer a bestselling $97 product for $9.99.

 

An alternative is to offer a $1 trial into a hot membership. If you can also offer a lower monthly rate on a high priced membership, or if the membership is in the $7-$20 a month category, you should do great.

 

Remember, you want to promote something on the Thank You Page because this is where you want to break even. That is, if you’re buying advertising, you want the profits from your Thank You Page to PAY for your advertising, so everything else you make in your funnels is pure profit.

 

– Split testing

 

Split test your Squeeze Page and your Thank You Page. Split test the offers, the headlines, the text, etc. Test everything and don’t just test small – test big, too. Try an entirely different headline, and entirely different offer, etc. Test small as well. Test different colors, different calls to actions and so forth.

 

The more people you have opting in and the more people you have buying from your Thank You Page, the more money you will make and the more money you can invest in advertising.

 

– Products to Promote

 

Obviously you only want to promote high quality, evergreen products that will help your customers. Choose products that solve problems or give how-to instruction. And if possible, promote products with recurring payments because these will pay you month after month.

 

Your funnel is no place to promote flash-in-the-pan products because you want products that are available for months and even years to come. This way you don’t have to continually update your autoresponder copy to replace products that are no longer valid.

 

– Creating and sourcing content

 

Make sure that all of your content is directly related to the reason why they signed up in the first place. Share tips that will help them solve their problem or help them move their passion forward. The more helpful you are with your information, the longer they’ll read your emails and buy your products.

 

Sourcing content is simply finding content online that’s terrific and sharing it with your readers. Remember to give credit for the content. And write your own thoughts and intro for the content.

 

Of course you don’t only want to use sourced content, you also want to create your own. You can do this by writing it yourself, by hiring someone to write it or by purchasing the rights to content.

 

Just make sure that everything you share with your readers provides immense value and helps them to reach their goals, and they will stay subscribed.

 

I hope today’s lesson was helpful to you. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for my next email. There will be some great stuff in the last lesson.

Email Profits Basics: Lesson 9

June 12, 2017 Comments Off on Email Profits Basics: Lesson 9 By Admin

In the last lesson we talked about email marketing strategies
you can use to get better results. In this lesson we are going
to talk about combining email marketing with other types of
marketing.

Whether you choose to do your marketing online or offline, one
thing doesn’t change. This is the concept that no single
marketing strategy will be as effective as a combination of two
or more marketing strategies.

This doesn’t mean it’s necessary for you to implement every
known marketing strategy to promote your business but rather it
implies that it’s worthwhile to market from a few different
perspectives to help you achieve your business related goals.
This lesson will examine the importance of combining email
marketing with other types of marketing to create a successful;
multi-tiered marketing strategy and will also offer some advice
on managing more than one marketing strategy at once.

As the old saying goes, “Two heads are better than one,” and
this is certainly true when it comes to marketing. You may enjoy
a great deal of success with email marketing but this doesn’t
mean you should not try other types of online marketing such as
website creation, participation in industry related message
boards, placing banner ads, orchestrating an affiliate marketing
campaign and generating inbound links to your website.

While it’s possible that not all of these strategies will be
effective for your business, you are likely to find at least one
other option which complements your email marketing and helps
you to achieve your business related goals.

Alternately you may even wish to combine your email marketing
campaign with more traditional marketing strategies such as
radio ads, television ads and the print media. Just because
these types of advertising do not take place online, doesn’t
mean they will not be able to help you generate more business.
In fact, advertising both online and offline can allow you to
reach a larger target audience. This is because you will likely
reach Internet users around the world but can also reach
potential customers who do not utilize the Internet for
purchasing or researching products or services similar to the
ones you offer.

Popular marketing strategies to combine with email marketing
include banner ads and message board participation. These are
all online activities and each one individually is fairly
simple. However, in combination these simple activities can
create a powerful statement. You may send out emails offering
useful information about your products or services, purchase
banner ad space on websites which may be of interest to your
potential customers and participate in industry related message
boards where you can earn the respect and pique the interest of
potential customers.

Even if your potential customers are not currently in need of
the products and services you offer, seeing your business name
so often can have a branding effect. Branding is essentially a
process in which consumers see a company name so often that they
are more likely to select a product from this company when they
are in need of an item the company offers.

If you are planning to combine multiple forms of advertising,
you should be aware that this can make it difficult for you to
evaluate the effectiveness of each marketing strategy. This is
especially true of the marketing strategies are implemented
concurrently. When you are only using one type of marketing
strategy, you can generally attribute increases in sales or
website traffic to changes in the marketing strategy.

When more than one type of marketing strategy is in effect,
determining which strategy is producing the desired effect can
be quite difficult. This situation can be handled by not making
changes to more than one marketing strategy at a time.

This will help to pinpoint which changes produce an increase in
sales or website traffic. It can also help you to determine when
changes to your marketing strategy have a detrimental effect on
your sales and website traffic. If you are having difficulty
determining which marketing strategy is most effective you can
consider asking customers to answer survey questions and provide
information such as how they learned about the products or
services, your business offers.

Make sure you look for your next lesson soon. We will be talking
more about evaluating your email campaigns.

Email Profits Basics: Lesson 8

June 11, 2017 Comments Off on Email Profits Basics: Lesson 8 By Admin

In the last lesson we talked about choosing the right type of
content for your emails. In this lesson we are going to go over
some simple yet effective email marketing strategies you can use
to get better results.

Email marketing is becoming extremely popular but this doesn’t
mean all business owners know how to run an effective email
marketing campaign. However, those who are well versed in the
subject of email marketing and have experiencing using popular
strategies effectively are likely to gain a huge advantage over
their competitors who do not have these skills. This lesson will
provide useful information for business owners who are hoping to
improve their sales or website traffic through effective email
marketing.

If you do not have a great deal of information about email
marketing and do not fully understand the principals involved
one of the best ways to orchestrate a truly effective email
marketing campaign is to hire a consulting firm with a proven
track record in promoting business through email marketing to
assist you in your endeavor.

Similarly, to traditional marketing such as radio, television
and print media, the popular strategies governing email
marketing are changing constantly. As a business owner you
likely already have enough to deal with trying to stay up to
date on business practices that you do not have the time, energy
or finances to also stay up to date on the latest changes in
email marketing.

For this reason, it’s certainly worthwhile to hire a
professional in the email marketing industry who can devote
himself full time to keeping up to date with the most effective
email marketing strategies and designing an email marketing
campaign for our business to help you achieve your business
related goals.

However, selecting a consultant from the many options available
can be downright overwhelming. In general, you should look for a
consultant who has a great deal of experience, a proven track
record, listens to your questions carefully, explains concepts
simply and makes your project a priority.

Another popular strategy for email marketing is to offer an
email correspondence course on a subject closely related to your
website or the products or services you offer. These
correspondence courses should include a number of short
segments, provide useful information, be of interest to your
intended audience and should also help to promote your business
in some way.

The simplest way to promote your business without having your
correspondence course deemed to be spam is to use a soft sell
approach to subtly urge readers to make a purchase or visit your
website for more information.

Publishing and distributing period courses is another example of
an email marketing strategy which can be highly effective. A
course is very similar to a course which is printed and
distributed by conventional methods such as mail delivery. The
bulk of a course should be quality content in the form of
featured lessons, short lessons containing useful tips or
product reviews. The course may also contain graphical elements.
These elements may simply be graphic designs or they may be
graphics which also serve as links. The links may direct traffic
to your website or to other websites.

Finally, your courses should contain some type of soft sell
sales approach. It’s important to not make the sales pitch
blatant as this may result in the course being considered spam.
Finally, the course should contain a call to action urging the
readers to either make a purchase or visit your website for more
information.

Regardless of the method of email marketing you opt to utilize,
one of the most important strategies is to evaluate the
effectiveness of your email marketing on a regular basis. This
is critical because elements of your email marketing campaign
which are not working should be weeded out. Likewise, elements
of your marketing campaign which are enjoying a high degree of
success should be utilized more often.

For example, if you notice there is a spike in sales or website
traffic each time you lesson a course, it might be worthwhile to
begin issuing courses more often. This type of evaluation and
feedback can turn a moderate success into a huge success.

Make sure you look for your next lesson soon. We will be talking
about combining email marketing with other types of marketing.

Advice To Consider When Using Video Marketing

June 11, 2017 Comments Off on Advice To Consider When Using Video Marketing By Admin

From online conglomerates to mom and pop stores, there are no limits to what video marketing can do for a business. Being able to look directly at your customers and clients and present yourself as an honest and valuable business is priceless! The following article will introduce you to the many benefits of video marketing.

Ask your customers to create their own videos. You could for instance organize a contest and ask customers to film themselves while they use your products. Reward the best videos with an interesting prize and use the submitted videos as promotional material for your social media marketing campaign and for your website.

Video tutorials are an excellent way to create new content and assist you customers. People will often search for sites with tutorial information about products or services. When they find great content, they will often share it after consuming it themselves. This is a great way to increase your visibility.

If you are using social media to market your business, try responding to comments and questions with videos. This is easily done with a webcam and this kind of video marketing adds a personal touch to your responses. When people can see the person instead of just reading text, it gives them the feeling that their comments are valuable and heard.

Take a look at the analytical tool on YouTube. This tool will give you access to detailed information on who viewed your videos and which keywords they typed. This is a good way to get an idea of whether or not you are reaching out to your target audience.

Be natural! The more fake or contrived you appear, the less likely viewers are to watch your whole video. If you can’t read a script without sounding like a dork, then don’t. Stick to who you are and represent yourself and your company and the video will turn out great.

People love tutorial videos so it is important to use them if you can. Walking people through how to do a certain task with clear and precise steps will most likely land you more viewers. People really appreciate it when you make the steps as simple and easy as possible.

If you can include your website URL in your video, do so. If viewers find your video interesting, they will want to know where they can go for more information. You can put your website name in as a caption, annotation or just say the name of your website a few times during the video.

When you are using video marketing it is important to keep your content interesting. If your video is dull then people will probably not watch the entire thing or recommend it to their friends. Make your message clear and engaging to your audience. Imagine you are watching your own video as a consumer.

How you sound on your video is as important as how you look. Is your voice wavering? Do you sound unsure of yourself? Do you say “um” or “like” a lot? Try to sound natural without seeming like a robot. If you can’t pull it off, ask someone else to be in the video.

Video marketing does not have to be complicated. One of the most popular formats is simply a regular video, without any bells and whistles included. Of course, if you can, those videos with flash animations have also proved popular, as well as picture slide shows with a voice over and music.

Hopefully, this article has given you plenty of inspiration to get started on your video marketing campaign. This method of advertising is already in full swing all around the Internet, and you should be using it too! Whether you’re a small outfit or a big company, video marketing can do wonders for your business.

Email Profits Basics: Lesson 7

June 10, 2017 Comments Off on Email Profits Basics: Lesson 7 By Admin

In the last lesson we talked about the fine line between
advertising and spam. In this lesson we are going to talk about
choosing the right type of content for your emails.

Email marketing may include sending email advertisements to a
large distribution list, publishing and distributing a course
and sending informative emails with a soft sell approach to
encourage recipients to make a purchase or visit your website.
Whether you opt to utilize one or all of these email marketing
techniques, you will be faced with one specific dilemma and that
is writing the content which will appear in these emails.

This is critical because these emails may be the first
impression potential customers are receiving for your products
and services. Superior content will give the potential customers
a good first impression which may make them more likely to
purchase your products or services. This lesson will discuss
some proven techniques for ensuring the content you use in your
email marketing campaign will reap the maximum benefits.

The importance of hiring a professional writer to assist you in
your email marketing campaign cannot be stressed enough. It’s
one of the most critical elements to the success of your
campaign. You may be a decent writer or you may have a staff
member who you think can do a good job creating the content for
your email marketing but unless you or your staff member is a
professional writer by trade, the quality of the work will
likely not be of the same quality as a professional can produce.

This can be very damaging especially if your competitors are
hiring writers to create their content. Your emails will likely
not be viewed as favorably as the emails written by
professionals.

The content you decide to include in your email marketing
efforts is largely a matter of personal preference but there are
some methods which have traditionally been more successful than
others. The type of content which may be effective often
includes informative lessons, short useful tips, links to
relevant websites, advertising for complementary products and
even some subtle forms of advertising which are meant to
persuade the recipients of the email to either make a purchase
or visit your website.

Full length insightful lessons which are likely to be of
interest to the members of your email distribution list are an
excellent idea for your email marketing campaign. These lessons
are a good idea because they will likely contain information
which the recipients of your email will appreciate.
Additionally, these lessons give you the opportunity to include
information about your products or services in the copy of the
email. This can be a subtle form of advertising when it
encourages the recipients to purchase a product or service or
visit the website without actually asking the recipient to do
so.

Short product reviews can also be very useful and helpful when
you include them in your email marketing campaign. These reviews
can help to attract a great deal of attention especially when
the reviews focus on the products you offer and provide
favorable reviews for these products. This type of information
can either be subjective in nature or can remain objective by
simply specifying the features of the products and offering
other concrete pieces of information as opposed to opinions of
the products.

Advertising is often a quite important part of an email
marketing campaign. This advertising may either be direct or
indirect in nature. Direct advertising may include banner ads or
other graphical advertisements which encourage website visitors
to click through the link to reach either your website or a
sponsor’s website. Indirect advertising may apply to content in
the copy of featured lessons which subtly encourage visitors to
make a purchase or visit your website.

The indirect marketing in an email marketing campaign is usually
supporting the products or services you offer while direct
marketing will likely promote products and services offered by
sponsors who paid to receive advertising space on the email.
Email recipients are usually well aware these graphics are part
of an advertisement and will choose to click on these links when
they have an interest in the products or services being offered.

Make sure you look for your next lesson soon. We will be talking
about simple yet effective email marketing strategies you can
use to get better results.

Unlocked Secrets Of Affliate Marketing Allowing You To Make Money Hand Over Fist

June 10, 2017 Comments Off on Unlocked Secrets Of Affliate Marketing Allowing You To Make Money Hand Over Fist By Admin

Do you want to make a little extra spending money? Affiliate marketing could be your answer. Affiliate marketing is where you promote a product on your site, and you keep a small percentage of the sale made from your site. Even though this sounds easy, many people fail at making a decent amount of money with this approach. The below article will give you some tips to help you succeed.

Affiliate programming is a gradual process that takes a while to make money from. It is important to remember that many programs give you lifetime payouts for members that you refer to their service. You must remember that affiliate advertising is not a get rich quick scheme; rather, it is an easy way to make some extra cash.

Consider asking each of your affiliate companies for a code which will allow your readers to save a percentage off their sales through your links. It could be the holiday themed, like HoHoHo11, or a permanent code for your website. Once you receive a code, use it in your marketing for that company.

A large percentage of online marketers will fail because they did not believe in themselves or their products. The percentage of failed marketing strategies is well over 90% and mostly because their mindset is not as positive or as prepared for the venture as it should be. Always approach your venture with a good frame of mind and a plan of attack.

It’s time to expand, once you have that first site up and making money, then it’s time to expand. Using what you have learned by building that first site, move on to a new project. Leave the first site to keep making money by making adjustments and updates, but generally letting it do its thing.

With affiliate marketing, there is no best network. There are many favorites, and everyone has their own personal reason as to why they prefer one over the other. You will find that each network is good in its own right. Your network selection should be based on what the network can do for you.

Make sure you have a strategy before you get into affiliate marketing. You want to prepare a plan of what types of products you want to have available and how you are going to attract attention to your webpage.
