This is just commonplace…
People from all walks of life come online trying to make a quick buck…
So, they decide to build a list, because some guy in a YouTube video mentioned that “the money is in the list” and that “you can earn $1 per month per subscriber… on the low end!”
I’ve personally talked to many people who decided to get their feet wet online promoting affiliate offers, because it looks like the path of least resistance.
And they may be right about that, but there’s a huge problem when you go about building your list that way.
The Gooroos call it “Promoting Self Liquidating Offers” (I call it affiliate list building)
They tell you that you don’t need a website or anything, you just need to sign up, pay and you’re all set…
You just need to purchase solo ads, ask a bunch of weird and annoying questions (including the exact date they had sex the first time!)…
And you’ll make back 100% of the money you put in
So you go, set the whole thing up, buy some traffic.
Then you wait… And wait…
But other than getting a few subscribers in “your list”…
Nothing really happens.
“But There’s Nothing Wrong About Self Liquidating Offers… In Fact There’s Hope!”
Today I want to reveal to you 3 secrets to put what you’re already doing in steroids so you can really knock it out of the park every time you promote your affiliate offers.
Secret #1 for affiliate list building success
First of all, you need traffic…
That goes without saying…
But you need traffic that is not only targeted but that’s REAL…
In the last few months there’s been an explosive growth on the supply side of the “Traffic Market”
Nowadays everyone and their brother are Solo Ad Sellers.
So, one of the main reasons why you don’t get sales is because you’re not getting REAL traffic.
Shameless and unethical pseudo-marketers have been flooding our industry with bot traffic.
That means that every time you get a subscriber, it’s not a real person, but a computer who’s opting in your list…
And as a logical consequence you don’t get sales.
The best way to avoid this is to go and find reputable sellers in the market who have been giving good results to their customers.
Do your due diligence, and it’ll pay off big time.
Don’t fall in the trap of these deceitful sharks…
They’ll try to convince giving you an outrageously low price.
In fact, that’s the first sign that something fishy is going on there.
Stay away from people who offer you top quality traffic at fiverr prices.
Secret #2 for affiliate list building success
This is a number’s game, so the more eyeballs you get to your affiliate offer, the more chances you’ll have to make serious sales.
Now, let’s say you have your “Rolodex” of traffic sellers that are sending you real traffic that’s interested in what you’re offering.
The next step is to increase the numbers of views of that offer.
You can do it in 2 ways:
- Drive traffic directly to your affiliate link. The real downside here is that you won’t be growing a list, but you can get more sales… You need to run some tests and see if this makes sense money-wise.
- Increase your opt-in conversion rate. This is bar-none the best solution. Because you are not just getting more eyeballs to your offers but you’re also getting more people in your list.
To increase your opt-in conversion rate you just need to see what the most successful people in your industry are doing (not what they say they’re doing, but what they’re actually doing) and model it.
Secret #3 for affiliate list building success
Ok, now you’re getting real traffic and you’re converting the traffic to new subscribers (and prospects) like never before…
So the next thing you need to do in order to get more sales is to set up a killer follow-up sequence.
The “gooroos” tell you that you need to build a relationship first with your list and then ask for the money.
And I partially agree with them, but the question is “When”.
When it comes to follow-up sequences perfect timing is critical.
So, in my experience you do need to presell the offer but don’t do that for too many days or you can lose their attention.
Just as a heads up, from 30% – 50% of the people who sign up for your list open the first email of your follow up sequence…
Never lose this amazing opportunity to start creating the relationship…
But remember that they’re not in your list because of you or the relationship, they’re there because of the solution that you promised on your capture page…
So give it to them!
And finally, please keep in mind that like you there should be many many people promoting the same offer, so you need to stand out from the crowd.
Apply these three secrets and I’m sure you’ll be light years away from your competitors.
This is Lenin signing off.
