5 Kickass Secrets To Building Your Email List

5-Kickass-Sercrets-To-Building-Your-Email-List-805x452

Today I’m getting back to basics and resetting my roots in the fundamentals of building my email list.  Your email subscribers are the foundation of your affiliate and internet marketing business.

So I wrote down five of my strategies that I will be using to re-engaging and growing my followers.

Secret #1 – The Lead Magnet

Your job as an email marketer is to put targeted leads on your email list and that can be very tough and very frustrating when you begin.  By having a HIGH VALUE and EASILY DIGESTED lead magnet can make it 10 times easier to subscriber if they actually want to be on your email list and learn from you.

Giving them something deserving to trade their email for your ability to send them emails means providing something worthy for them to interact with you.

The hard part is being able to build a relationship with them right from the moment they subscriber to your email list.

You can creating things like, reports, checklists, mind maps which are great and easily consumable.  For the subscriber these are easy to go through and won’t take much of their time to get started with your content if it’s well done.

By creating some more in-depth training like videos and adding a link to your content you are giving them a chance to get to know more about you and how you can truly help them.

Secret #2 – The Two Step!

The two step optin method has been tested and proven to convert much higher than a one step optin.

When a potential subscriber click on the first button to bring up the optin form this creates what is called a micro commitment.  This small action immediately starts to build a culture with your subscriber.  You are teaching them to click on your content, including your soon to be coming affiliate links.

The secrets to the two step optin or any optin for the majority is to ask the subscriber for the bare minimum information you need to start communicating with them.  The less information you require from your subscribers the higher your conversions will be.

Just ask for the email.  Plain. Simple.

Secret #3 – Be The Bonus

Products are launched EVERY DAY.  How would you like to get a piece of that traffic with out creating the product?

A great strategy is to build relationships with not only your subscribers but also those vendors in your niche.

Ask those product vendors for a “Bonus Spot” on their download page or inside their members only area.  You provide their customers with even more great content that helps support the vendor.

Just give them a link to your optin page so their customers can access your content.  Now you have new subscribers on your email list.

The best part of this strategy is that these leads are BUYERS and extremely RESPONSIVE.

Secret #4 – Pop Up Boxes

You know those boxes that pop up when your on a page or trying to leave a site?

This are called light boxes.  These are very effective and can get a lot of people on your list.  These pop ups are engaging and almost IMPOSSIBLE to ignore.

Be UNIGNORABLE in your business.

You want to get these in front of everyone as much as possible until they subscribe.  Don’t worry about feeling your are annoying… You are… but it’s proven these work 😉

Studies have shown that people need to be exposed to things multiple times before they take action.  The more they see something.  The more they take action.

You can even use light boxes to get people to optin to finish reading a blog post.  Make them optin to get the complete content.  This is ninja strategy.

Secret #5 – Launch Your Own Product

This by far is my favourite way to build my email list.  It is the fastest way to build a list of targeted and responsive buyers.

This method is more labor intensive and there is definitely a learning curve to know how to launch a product successfully.  But once you have the process down you can create products quickly and the get the highest quality leads.

You need to put together great content worthy of someone to pay money for it.  And you need to do it on a consistent basis.

So that’s the top 5 secrets I will be using to build my list and that is where we are going to leave it for now.

I hope you find this helpful and please leave some comments below.

Screen Profits Video Training Course [Review]

Today I’m doing a review of Screen Profits, a new training program by Jeff Caravantes.

[video_player type=”youtube” youtube_remove_logo=”Y” width=”560″ height=”315″ align=”center” margin_top=”0″ margin_bottom=”20″]aHR0cHM6Ly95b3V0dS5iZS9ZOUpFM0t1TXVvSQ==[/video_player]

 

Screen Profits is a new video training program released by Jeff Caravantes.  The front end offer is a training course that claims to show you how to profit from making good quality videos.

With the purchase of this offer Jeff will teach you basic to advanced tips and techniques utilizing Camtasia video editing software.

There are several videos inside the members area along with a some training ebooks to support the training.

Also included is a course Jeff has called GIPMY Logo Production.  This is a training course that walks your through logo design and editing.

There are upgrade offers that will be presented to you as you purchase through the sales funnel.

The first upgrade offer is the Accelerated Profits video module training.  Accelerated Profits is designed to take your videos to the next level.

You will learn more advanced video creation processes including how to prepare for your video creation to uploading your videos to the best sites.

The second upgrade offer is called Screen Profits Video Assembly Line.  The Assembly Line system that Jeff has developed is designed to enable you to create templates and turn out videos faster.

There is also a video assets pack that contains images, icons and other great things that will help make your videos look great.

I have had the opportunity to get access to the members area of Screen Profits and have taken a good look at what Jeff has created.

Screen Profits Members Area

Once you access your members area you can access the training under the Products => Basic Training tab.  This is the training you want to start with to learn all about how to use the basic functions of Camtasia.

Once you are in the Basic Training area you will see 5 sections or modules.

Basic Training

Module 1 is the first part to discovering how to start making money with your videos.  There are five videos inside this module.  two of the videos show various ways to profit from videos and the other three videos are over the shoulder demonstrations of Jing, Snagit and Camtasia.

Module 2 is where you really dig in an learn Camtasia inside and out.  I did learn a lot of great tips and tricks inside this module that I do currently use when editing my videos now.

The last 3 modules are more like resources as there are no videos in here but jammed packed with great resources to up your video game!

Jeff has also included text versions of his training so you can follow along and read as well.

My only negative feedback is that some of the videos are extremely long for training and there is no scrub bar.  Most people tend to stay engaged for shorter periods of time and some videos are 25-30 minutes in length and if I missed something I could not go back to review it.

With that being said these videos are full of great content and Jeff does not leave any thing out.

Next up is the GIMPY Logo Production training.  This is a basic logo creation tutorial that walks you through how to create and do basic edits to images using GIMP.

Gimpy Logo Production

This is a great resource he has included and has various learning formats including an eBook, audio course, video course and some resources.

The first upgrade Jeff has included is called Accelerated Profits.  This is designed to take your video editing to the next level with some advanced techniques.  From creating storyboards (very important) and maps of your video content to live video captures and even template creation for Camtasia to create video series of a broadcast.

He also covers the importance of audio and some free tools to help create stunning audio for a better viewer experience.

In the last upgrade offer Jeff shows you how to speed up the video creation process by creating an “Assembly Line” system.

Final thoughts…

In my opinion this is a great training course on video production using Camtasia.  As I do use video in my business a lot, and I am a Camtasia user I found this training extremely helpful for me to make video editing easier.

If you are a Camtasia user or trying to deciding if Camtasia is right for you this training will definitely help you become a video editing master.

Here is a great interview I had with Jeff about this product and video editing.

Enjoy 🙂

Affiliate Blogging Ninja [Review]

Affiliate-Blogging-Ninja-header-rev1-2

Today I’m doing a review of Affiliate Blogging Ninja, a new blogging training program by Shreya Banerjee.

 

[video_player type=”youtube” youtube_remove_logo=”Y” width=”560″ height=”315″ align=”center” margin_top=”0″ margin_bottom=”20″]aHR0cHM6Ly95b3V0dS5iZS9qTjF6a0hxa0hwbw==[/video_player]

 

Affiliate Blogging Ninja is a brand new video training program released by Shreya Banerjee. The front end offer is a training course that claims to show you step by step how to setup your own blog and start making a profit with only taking you two hours of investment every month.

With the purchase of this offer Shreya will teach you many things that are essential to setting up your first blog.  Which platform and plugins you need to be successful, creating content that your readers will enjoy, how to drive traffic to your new blog and ultimately how to turn those visitors into dollars.

There are two one time offers that are presented to you as you purchase through the sales funnel.

The first upgrade offer is more video training which compliments the front end offer very well.  In this training Shreya discusses Vlogging or Video Blogging.

The course outline how video can help your blog and she walks you through different video creation strategies you can use to add more engaging content to your blog.

The second upgrade offer is a complete done for you install service where Shreya will install a new blog on your site complete with all the plugins and extras you need.  This also includes some private label rights content that you can use in different ways to help create content.

I have had a chance to access Affiliate Blogging Ninja and look inside the members area.  The members area is well organized and laid out so that you can follow the training in a sequential manner.

[images style=”0″ image=”http%3A%2F%2Ftrevormchaffie.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2017%2F03%2FABN-Mem-1024×632.png” custom_width=”Y” width=”1024″ custom_width_val=”600″ align=”center” top_margin=”0″ alt_text=”Affiliate%20Blogging%20Ninja%20Members%20Area” full_width=”Y”]

 

Once you are in the members area you can access all the training from the “Blog Ninja” tab.  This is the main training available through the front end offer.  There are 6 modules containing 27 videos in total for you to go through.

The videos are recorded in bite size chunks so they are easy to follow.  There are download options for each video if you want to download and watch on the go.  Shreya has included a lot of resources on each page that you can reference.

Module one is geared towards new bloggers that have never set up a blog before.  The set up videos are very in depth and will walk new users through selecting a domain name, to installing plugins and even showing users how to add an optin form to your new blog. I wish Shreya could have shown other options for autoresponders other than Aweber as I do not use Aweber.

Module two and three are fairly short and will explain different types of post you can use and explains in detail how to pick the right products for you to promote in your blog posts.

Module four was an eye opener for me.  As much as I knew WordPress had the ability to schedule posts for a later date I had never used the feature.

Shreya gave me some great tip and ideas on how to create my content and get it ready for a period and not have to worry about it as it was already scheduled to release.  Definitely my AH-HA moment.

Module five and six are the advanced modules showing you how to get traffic to your blog using social media and youtube.  And the last phase is monetization.

In my opinion the training program is laid out in a nice and easy to follow format.  The videos are short and effective to get you through the training quickly so you can get working on your own blog.

I have contemplated over the years about my blog and the lack of use I capitalized from it.  After reviewing, Affiliate Blogging Ninja has helped me realize what a resource a blog can be and I have started to commit time and energy back to my blog.

If you are new to blogging or need help refreshing your ideas of blogging I recommend you take a look at investing in Affiliate Blogging Ninja.

(Here is the interview with Shreya as promised… Some really good Ninja tips in here 🙂 )

The Advantages of Selling an Affiliate Product

There are two popular and effective strategies when it comes to making money online. One is to sell a product that you’ve created and the other one is to sell an affiliate product. These are different from making money from ads, in which you are getting paid to refer customers.

When you sell a product, you profit directly from the customer. However, you have two options to choose from. That is, making your own product or selling an affiliate product.

When selling a product you’ve made, you might automatically think that you’ll get to keep 100% of the profit and you get to control the product. But take note that with affiliate marketing, you can actually get a significant share of the profit anyway. While 60% is the standard, it can also go up to 80% or even beyond sometimes. Thus, it is almost the same way as selling your own item with regards to profit.

But with affiliate marketing, you are able to eliminate all risk as you are selling something that someone else created. So, you don’t have to invest time and/or money into creating something such as an ebook or a software.

Meanwhile, you can also choose something that is selling really well in affiliate marketing. With this, there’s no risk that the product will flop. You just simply select something that works in your niche. As there are no overheads and no risk, this will allow you to scale the volume up considerably.
