The Benefits Of List Building
List Building For Affiliate Marketers
Here is number one of my five blogs outlining tactics you can use in your affiliate marketing efforts.
With this plan you will be setting up a squeeze page giving away some kind of offer that makes people want to give you their information in exchange for your offer.
(a page that allows you to capture the information of your visitor, their email address and name, and in some cases sometimes more)
Here are a few examples of squeeze pages:
Creating Squeeze Pages and Optin Boxes with Ease – Wordpress has quite a few Optin Plugins you can use. They are usually quite simple to setup and use, and work with all major email providers for easy integration.
Squeeze pages are meant to be giving away something of value, something you believe your audience really wants or needs. You can give away anything you want, but it needs to be something people will truly want.
Fail at offering something people actually want and you’ll never get anyone to give you their information and get on your list. Or they will just unsubscribe after they get it or never confirm their email addresses.
Now once you start building an email list based on your free offer you need to send people on that email list information that leads to them clicking on your affiliate link and buying.
Let’s say that I’m an affiliate for an ebook on getting website traffic. I could create a squeeze page giving something away that tells people my top 5 ways of driving traffic. When they give me their name and email address on my squeeze page they automatically get access to the free offer and they get put on my email list.
To make money as an affiliate I would constantly send them information about getting traffic and recommending products related to getting that traffic and pointing the reader to my affiliate link.
How do you do this?
