If you want to make money online you need to have a website which is the most basic part of your online business, but one of the most overlooked factors to making a full time income online is email marketing.
Email marketing is one of the most powerful ways to make money online and it is fairly easy to get started.
Just below you’re going to find out what makes email marketing one of the most powerful (and overlooked) techniques to make serious money online, and how you can start taking advantage of it in just a few simple steps.
One of the most common questions that comes up for new marketers (and is covered in my Inbox Blueprint Review) is “what is email marketing and how can I start using it in my business” and the truth is that while email marketing is one of the most powerful forms of marketing online, it’s also one of the easiest.
You can get started within minutes by signing up for an email marketing service like Aweber which will give you all the tools you need to start building an email list of customers that want to buy your products and/or services.
If you have a website, blog, or some page on the net that gets any traffic at all then YOU need to start building your email list today. Imagine for a second you have a website that gets 100 visitors per day and you promote a product that converts at around 2% (average conversion rate).
At this rate, you’re getting about 2 sales per day and all the rest of that traffic is gone, and statistic have proven that a huge percentage of that 98% with NEVER come back to your site or buy your products. That’s bad news..
Now let’s imagine for a second that you have the same website that receives 100 visitors per day, the product that converts at 2%, but now you have a simple capture mechanism on your website that grabs your visitors emails in trade for some special piece of content, a special blog post, or a bonus PDF you created.
This simple capture mechanism is known as a squeeze page or opt-in form, and it converts 15% of all your traffic into subscribers on your email list.. Instead of losing 98% of your traffic for good, you've now managed to capture a portion of that traffic onto your email list.
Now you have the right to contact these new subscribers via email, build a relationship and of course, promote your products and services at the click of a button.
All you have to do is send an email and you can drive instant traffic! Plus, now that you’re capturing that traffic into an email database or an “email list” you can send out emails anytime you want and make money from your products and even affiliate products that pay you commissions per sale.
Most importantly, your website that was getting 3,000 visitors per month will build an email list 450 subscribers which will continue to get bigger each and every month. That’s nearly 5500 subscribers added to your email list within 1 years time, and a list like that can make you some serious profits.
The average statistic is about $1 per month, per subscriber on your list which means a whopping $5500 per month from one simple change to your online business.
