I find that anything about Blogging with a unique edge can give you the sales time and time again. Find something unique like blogging for the handicapped as they learn to make money from home online.

When a new trend arrives be the first to create a report about it.

Imagine if you had been the very first to write a report about Twitter or the first to create a useful twitter tool you are literally laughing with the traffic that it can generate for you.

You just have to remember that your product must be original and offer something that your target market wants right now.

Information lists and created into a report

Everybody wants to know about something and good quality lists are very hard to come by and you should tap into this if you can’t find any other relevant material to use.

There is literally millions of ways that you can create a list as long as it is up to date and suits the audience you have a winner. Create a list of the best places to get free twitter tools if you are aiming at the twitter market.

However for a big buzz in the make money online niche go for something simple as it will really pay off. You could create a list about practically anything and research it for a few short hours on some online forums.

Internet marketers are always looking for this kind of free information and often spend hours looking for it and this is your chance to take advantage of this niche in order to build your list.

It doesn’t even need to be really long either you could do just ten sites and improve it by writing a review for each of them so that people know what they are getting involved in. This will then give them the ultimate opportunity to use the list and many will take it a step further and hand out your free PDF to others making your free directory viral.

If you can’t write your own report or simply don’t want to you can always use article directories to get your name out there. For example if you wanted to do “the top ten Adsense tips” you could copy and paste the top ten articles about Adsense from ezinearticles.com then give this away.

The beauty of these article directories is that you are allowed to freely copy the content as long as you include the resource box at the end of the article.

People also love top ten tips because they believe they are short enough to read in one sitting without it going on forever. I recommend that you get busy using your imagination to come up with a free product to offer to your future mailing list.

Now its time to create your squeeze page I personally use FrontPage or NVU even though there are many other programs available to do it with.

Here is a free tutorial to show you how to set up your squeeze page if you are not familiar with these programs:

http://www.dsm-publishing.co.uk/freegifts/webpageexpert.html

Following is an example of a great squeeze page:

Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

This one is what I call a short squeeze page as there isn’t much information included in it and have the best results over all. The reader isn’t getting bored and is simply intriged by what you are presenting in front of them.

Here is a more modern squeeze page:

Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

37

index-38_1.jpg

As you can see in the example above this one is of the average length and spells out the advantages of signing up for this newsletter then sells its product without any real help needed.

Another option is to personally brand yourself if you are planning on being in the business on a more long term basis. Purchase the domain of your name for example samanthamilner.com and invite them to be part of your newsletter without receiving any free gifts.

I know we are constantly told that we must have a free gift but this isn’t always the case. People that are interested in YOU will search for your name on the internet and if you present them with a website were they can get involved in your brand they will gladly take it.

Also because people are interested in YOU and not just a quick free report they will stay subscribed with you for a lot longer and your unsubscribe rate will be very low.

If on the other hand you feel too nervous to create your own squeeze page from scratch this is a great free software that you can use instead:

http://www.squeezepagegenerator.com

Now that you understand the meaning of a squeeze page and what it does here are some pointers for getting the best results: Heading – The heading is very important as this is what the reader sees first before anything else. It has to grab their attention enough for them to stay on your webpage without leaving immediately because they are bored with the vibe that you have put out there.

Your headline must be clear about what you are providing and not be too misleading. Your copy must also connect with the reader on an emotional level.

The visitor wants to know a lot from one heading including what’s in it for them? Put simply the visitor will only read on if they believe that it benefits them or provides something that they personally want.

Body – The body text is very important as this is where it compels the visitor to opt-in to your mailing list. If you don’t compel them you have simply lost the future subscriber for good.

It is extremely important that through the body text you explain to the reader that in order to receive your amazing free product they must submit their name and email address.

Some of the most powerful and successful squeeze pages have fitted on one browser without the need to scroll down. So if you are not a big writer it doesn’t matter. You can follow this method and after including an e-cover you can use bullet points to get your information across to the visitor.

Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

At the end of the day your visitor has two options to opt-in to your mailing list or leave. You shouldn’t over complicate things by giving them the opportunity to visit other web pages as your sign ups will reduce very quickly.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Making Quick Money Writing From Home Online (Your answer to: make money from home online, make money writing online, make quick money online and make money online)________________________

Subscribe Button – There is a lot of debate about what you place in the subscribe button and I personally find that you get the best results by changing it from the standard text that is usually visible.

It doesn’t have to be something too over the top just as long as it grabs the attention of the reader. With internet marketing one of the key points to bear in mind is that it is always about a call of action. If you write an article you will create a resource box and in this box you will explain to the reader that if they want to know more about this subject then click here.

This is exactly what you want to achieve with your subscriber base –

they have read about what you want to offer them and now you want to direct them to their free copy so that they can read this information at their leisure.

There are lots of different phrases that you could use and these are my favourites:

*Send me my FREE Report

*Download for FREE right now!

*FREE instant access now!

You may find this a little unusual but changing the Free into capitals really makes a difference to your opt-in rate. It creates a call to action to the readers and reminds them that by giving you their name and email address they are effectively getting a product for nothing.

People love something for free and this will help them focus on this.

There is nothing wrong with looking at what other marketers do and see what they use in their button and experiment with it from time to time until you have the ideal formula for you.

Test – It is very important that you test the system and make sure that it works as otherwise you will lose future customers then regret it Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

40

later on. Once you have uploaded it check it in a couple of different browsers as even though it may work perfectly in Internet Explorer it may have a slight fault in FireFox.

It is also worthwhile checking the fonts to make sure that it works well without you needing to squint. Have a look around similar squeeze pages and see what colours work well together and which are a waste of time until you have your own ideal webpage.

Step 2 – Free Bonuses

The most important part of your squeeze page is to offer them such amazing free information that they believe that they are getting an absolute steal from you!

This can be done very easily by offering them some free bonuses as part of their package. This is the icing on the cake and will make your original offer seem amazing and will allow you to make money from home online that much quicker. Your visitors will be falling over themselves to opt-in to your mailing list.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Making Quick Money Writing From Home Online (Your answer to: make money from home online, make money writing online, make quick money online and make money online)________________________

Have a quick look on Google under the following terms:

*free giveaway products

*giveaway rights

*free private label rights

*free master resale rights

You will soon discover that you will find more free products than you can shake a stick at. Even though you will probably have to subscribe to their mailing list in order to download these free gifts it will be worth it with all the different ones on offer.

It really doesn’t get any better than this to make money from home online!!

You can then experiment with the amount of free gifts that you offer rotating them to make them look even more original if you like.

Sometimes it can be very off putting to be offered several different e-Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

41

books on one page so experiment and offer different amounts until you are satisfied with what you provide.

It doesn’t matter if you change it several times in one year as this is perfectly normal. Personally I have changed my squeeze pages several times as new systems are launched and you always want to keep it fresh with a lovely new feel to it.

It is so much more worthwhile to offer one or two quality products than trying to offload 100 old worthless products that people have already read a long time ago.

Think of it like this – if you would be happy to buy it then I am sure others would be very pleased to have it for free!

Step 3 – Using an autoresponder

Now that you have your product planned you need to look into setting up your autoresponder. This is very much a long term strategy so it is very important that you choose one that will work well over time and don’t just go for a cheap quick job.

I personally recommend Aweber they are very reliable and the features they have are amazing. You can sign up for an account by

Clicking Here.

I have been using them for a while now and once you have spent a couple of months getting used to all of their features it will become second nature when setting up new campaigns or adding to the ones that you already have.

There is a lot of debate about how best to use them so I am going to talk from personal experience of how they can make money from home online for you like they have for me.

Firstly if you want to make your business as automated as you can the best way to do it is it stack up your messages rather than sending them out manually. However if you have a busy life you could end up sending out messages at irregular intervals and this can very easily confuse the readers on your mailing list.

So with this in mind set up a sequence of follow up messages instead and you can do these in advance adding to them once or twice a Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

42

month. Increasing the amount of follow ups you have completely depends on how often that you send out your Ezine.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Making Quick Money Writing From Home Online (Your answer to: make money from home online, make money writing online, make quick money online and make money online)________________________

For the best results I recommend sending out the first two a day or so apart and then every four days. Whatever you decide on be sure that it is an even number this way the customer is receiving the email on a different day each time and then if they have other commitments to deal with the chances of it getting read are much better.

So if your Ezine goes out once a month go for every 28 days. So if you plan to send it out once a week go for every eight days instead.

The way a follow up sequence works is that as soon as you add a new subscriber to your list they automatically start on message one.

Therefore every member is receiving the same messages no matter when they subscribed to your list giving you the opportunity to provide even more offers and increase your profit range.

You can have favourite products reduced in the signature of your email even in Ezines that don’t directly offer products increasing your income even more.

The messages should always be kept up to date so that the subscriber that joined first and is the first to receive the messages doesn’t run out as this will look really bad. I always aim at working two weeks in advance and this works really well.

Another point to make is that the messages that are sent out shouldn’t refer to a timescale as you don’t want them becoming out of date as this will result in you having to change them regularly and will create more work for you. So avoid seasonal messages i.e. talking about Christmas or product launches.

Any messages that you do want to send out that are time sensitive you can send them out as an extra email via an email broadcast. At the end of the day the customer won’t notice the difference unless you tell them and will often thank you for emails even though they assume that they have just been emailed to them.

If you are still wondering why you need an autoresponder this is why:

“Even if you have an unresponsive list of subscribers 5% will buy every product that you offer” How’s that for make money from home online?

This may sound like a really small amount but think of it like this: If you have 1,000 subscribers and they each buy an offer for $9 from every four day email that’s $3,600 per 32 days. Build it into a list of 10,000 and you have a $36,000 monthly income from an automated system.

Adding subscribers and finding them isn’t hard. It’s setting up the system that takes the time, but once you have it in place, it will grow over and over again.

Making Quick Money Writing From Home Online (Your answer to: make money from home online, make money writing online, make quick money online and make money online)________________________

Here are some tips for getting the best results from your autoresponder to make money from home online:

Title – Make the title eye catching and reach out to the readers curiosity if they like the title enough they will make the effort to read your email. If they don’t like your title the end result will often involve them deleting the message before they have even read it which is something you certainly don’t want to happen. You don’t want to give too much information away either as you want to keep their full attention.

Personalisation – The Aweber settings will often give you the opportunity to personalise it with a range of different information. I recommend that you change the name to your business name or your personal name. For an extra touch put ** at either side then people will notice it above the rest of their emails. Also lots of people have their emails delivered in name order and a * will bring it to the top and keep it at the top until the customer moves it.

Keep the reader guessing – To get the best click through rate it is important to keep the reader guessing so that they will click through to the special offer that you are advertising. So in the email only Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

44

include a small amount of data so that they can’t resist finding out more information about it.

Accurate Content – Make sure that your content is accurate and up to date. Whatever you do – NEVER LIE as so many people do this and it loses them credibility and will result in lots of unsubscribes. The content should also remain similar so that they know it was written by you and your personality shines through.

Make it interesting – This is extremely important if it is not interesting people will get bored with it and many will not bother even finishing reading your email.

Plan of action – You want to close the deal with information of a special offer or what they should do with the information that you have just presented them with. If you are telling them about one of your business deals explain to them how they can create similar business deals whether you are offering it to them on a plate or not. Show them how they can make money from home online too.

If you remember I mentioned that 10,000 is a great figure to have especially for creating a large income from. But how long does it take to get it this far? Have you got the time to make it successful?

The truth is an hour a day and you can easily without effort be adding 50 new subscribers 7 days a week. With this in mind six months down the line you will have a 10,000 mailing list. I will talk to you later on in this e-book about how to get these figures! Learn to make money from home online yourself.

Obviously if you don’t use an autoresponder you couldn’t possibly manage all this on your own. Imagine how you would explain to AOL

wanting to send out 10,000 emails at once my guess is that as soon as you have sent out 200 they will have suspended your account.

When you set up your autoresponder there is the option of where to send them after they have filled in the form and this is when you create your one time offer (OTO) or upsell.

Careful thought should be taken with this and we will go into greater detail with this in the next chapter.

Step 4 – Your One Time Offer (OTO)

The whole idea of a one time offer (OTO) is to offer them something that isn’t available anywhere else. It should also have a reduced price tag so that it is literally too hard to refuse to the reader.

The reader of the special offer will only ever see it once and this makes people act on it a lot more. The user at this point in the sign up cycle wants to know how to gain their free gift so it’s important that you mention this before you present them with their OTO.

Something like this works incredibly well to make money from home online no matter what your site is about:

Before you come and join us....

Before you go and collect all your free gifts I need you to verify your email address. When you log on to your email account you will find a message from us. It will say something like DSM Publishing requires you to verify your email address. Once you click on the link in the message you will have instant access to our members area. This is just a formality to stop you from being spammed by others. If you can't find it please check your spam folder.

In the mean time I would like to offer you here and now two of our best products with an amazing 60% discount....

Then they know to check their email address but they have this amazing offer presented to them at the same time.

They now have the choice of two different options:

1. Leave the page to go and confirm their email address leaving the offer forever

2. Read the offer and consider buying this amazing discounted product from you

You can also set up a second OTO if you wish and provided the second product is just as good this is a great way to increase your profits. Like above you will still need to include a note at the top so that people know what is happening but this time you will be welcoming them as a new member.

Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

46

Thanks for confirming your email address

Your username and password for the exclusive members area is on the way to your email address. Once you enter the memberszone you will have instant access to a huge range of free gifts as a big thank you for subscribing.

But before you head over to check your emails I would like to offer you an amazing 60% discount off one of our best selling products.

On Aweber you will find that there is an option to send new customers to a certain domain after they have confirmed their email address and this is when you present them with the second offer which is often referred to as an upsell.

I find offering something different to the first offer has the best results as you can then appeal to other customers that wouldn’t necessarily be interested in the first offer.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Making Quick Money Writing From Home Online (Your answer to: make money from home online, make money writing online, make quick money online and make money online)________________________

Here are some important points when planning your one time offer: Target the audience – Make sure that you target the audience that you are focusing on and not go off key with your offer. There is absolutely no point offering a one time offer about food when the squeeze page was about making money online.

Test the vision – It is very important that your offer is easy to read and that your future customers get the chance to view it. So test it on yourself before you send your own customers to the OTO.

Focus on the Why – It is very important that you explain to your future subscribers why they must purchase this offer and what is in it for them. This should also include the call of action so that they can act on the information that has been presented to them.

The sales copy on your one time offer should be of great quality as the customer is in the middle of signing up for your mailing list and if they think it is not up to scratch they may not even subscribe.

Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

47

When they are on your list you will want them to purchase future offers and you want them to get used to the way you offer products in your sales copy.

If you offer a bad sales copy from the beginning the likelihood is that your sales conversion rate will be rather low.

But what do you offer?

You can offer them whatever you like as long as it will sell. Choosing a product can be hard at first and I would suggest thinking about what you would want to receive if you were joining the list then work from there.

If you don’t have your own products there is always the option of finding an affiliate to work with rather than getting your own product together. There are lots of affiliate product owners that are desperate for sales and because we are talking about information products they will love the idea of automated sales through you.

Contact a few affiliate sellers and reach a deal with them the majority will be happy to oblige. Ideally you want to find a product that you can offer with at least a 50% discount and then do a 50/50 joint venture with the seller.

Making Quick Money Writing From Home Online (Your answer to: make money from home online, make money writing online, make quick money online and make money online)________________________

On the upsell page though you don’t have to offer a discount in which case you can do a page like this:

Thanks for confirming your details.....

Here is the link for The Mega Marketing Launcher. Simply click save as and place it on your desktop.

Your Link

In the mean time I have something that I know you will just love and if you want to take internet marketing to the next level this is for you.

Affiliate Link

Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

48

Another great option is to find a selection of quality private label rights products and offer these to your list as a one time offer. People enjoy receiving a good bundle of information and this offer works incredibly well.

Even if you spend a couple of hundred dollars on quality products you will make your money back in no time at all.

It is entirely up to you which direction you decide to take with your one time offer it is just a case of choosing what sells the most copies.

Many internet marketers especially the gurus will have changed their offers several times over the years as times change and new products enter the market.

The easiest ways to take payment is through either Clickbank or PayPal both are great for setting up one time offers and it will make setting up accounts a breeze.

Once you have the one time offer set up you will also need to do a download page and this is incredibly simple to do and should stick with the same format as your download page of the free report. Then when people pay for the product they will automatically be forwarded to the download page meaning that you have very little to do.

Step 5 – Creating targeted traffic to your webpage

Now that you have set up your squeeze page and one time offer you need to look at ways to build up your mailing list so that you can make money from home online from it.

Many people will tell you that every method works and that you should put time into all of them but this isn’t true – it’s a case of finding the methods that provide you with the best responses for the money involved.

However you will soon discover that the best methods out there are actually FREE!

Below is a run through of some of the best methods for creating the most responsive mailing list to make money from home online: Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

49

Social Networking:

Now this has to be my personal favourite, through social networking for fifteen minutes a day I can gladly add over 500 subscribers a week.

However if I spend more time on these sites the figure goes up. It is a very simple way of marketing and you don’t have to work hard to get the numbers. Twitter is a great place to start this from, they are constantly mentioned in the media and many internet based businesses run their whole operation from on there.

A simple post on Twitter will do the trick:

How to make money from home online and work from home earn money FAST before http://tinyurl.com/c95hm8

The very first time I sent this live on Twitter via an update it added 100 new subscribers pretty much instantly. Now using it along with other messages it bumps up my subscribers every day. You have to remember that Twitter has a global audience therefore you should have about five different links to join your list over the course of the day. Then you are targeting the whole world compared to just covering your own time zone.

Here are some examples of few more of ours that we rotate over the course of the day:

If you have just the one product to giveaway you can’t get the same results as people will just get sick of seeing the same old link. Those that don’t get fed up will probably already be on your list.

Many marketers say that you are playing with fire by doing this. I often get told that you will lose mass amounts of Twitter followers and that you are effectively spamming but this is really not true. All you have to do is to make sure that you offer something of value in between these updates to ensure that you continue to make money from home online.

Post jokes, links to other peoples products without an affiliate link and engage in quality chit chat between your fellow online Twitters. You can do this because Twitter is so big. Along with providing updates you should also create a quality profile and include a link in it to either one of your sales pages or direct to your main subscriber page.

You can place links on lots of other social networking sites too. But don’t place as many as they are some what smaller and it will look like spamming. Three a day will be fine as long as like with Twitter you communicate with people in between.

Another important note is that many people search twitter and you want to include as many search terms as you can so think about my first tweet in this section again:

How to make money from home online and work from home, earn money FAST before http://tinyurl.com/c95hm8

People will come across my tweet on twitter if they search for the following:

*how to make money from home online

*make money from home online

*make money online

*work from home

*work online

*work from home online

*earn money online

*earn money online fast

These keywords can be very expensive to obtain just on Google via Google Adwords so really take advantage of this as it is really successful and will get you lots of new subscribers.

51

You should also try out some other network sites and these could include:

FaceBook

LinkedIn

MySpace

YouTube

And so on

Forum Marketing

This is the second place were I started my mailing list back in 2005.

Just by offering quality advice to others you can be adding to your mailing list without any real effort. If someone asks a question that you know the answer to not only will they see it but they will also view your signature with other worthwhile advice in it. You shouldn’t put too much on it though, I have seen some with over five products in it and it looks awful.

Here is one of our current ones:

Earn your 1st $250 online NOW

Become an expert NOW Aweber Wordpress FileZilla

As long as you don’t provide one line answers it is very easy to build this way. Just by dedicating 30 minutes a day over a month it is not hard to add 1,000 to your list. Like with social networking sites you can also create a profile with more information about yourself.

Article Marketing

This is one of the easiest ways to create free traffic that is available today. Even though it has been about for years it still serves a great purpose in the market place. You will not get the same results as those achieved through social networking but it will also provide you with plenty of solid back links through to your websites and in the long run it will provide you with traffic through the Google Search Engines.

From every article that I write that points to one of my squeeze pages I roughly get about 50 new subscribers, but when that article hits the search engines it increases dramatically.

However this is just from writing the article and submitting it to goarticles.com and doesn’t include submitting the article through social marketing so this figure is generally a lot higher.

I find though that for the best results the signature in an article should blend in with the article so that people don’t actually realize. The whole point of an article is the call to action at the end and if it flows your subscribe rate will go through the roof.

Here is a good example of one:

If you are unsure about how to write articles or were to start the best place is with writing an article review. It then gets you in the spirit and your article talents will pop out and say hello.

eBay About Me Page

If you don’t already know me I started my mailing list from my eBay About Me page and I wouldn’t be in the position I am today without it.

It provided me with my first 2,000 subscribers four years ago and made me a lot of cash at the same time.

Just by creating an about me page, you can tell people what you are all about using the style of a profile and it will add loads of happy subscribers. Even if you don’t use your account for business you should still create one. It is suggested by eBay that 80% of people will check a seller’s about me page prior to making a bid – just think of how many people you can add!

All you would need to do is to tell people how wonderful you are and as a thank you for visiting the page they are invited to pick up a free gift!

Yahoo Answers

Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

54

index-55_1.jpg

Before you give me a lecture and start emailing me, I am well aware that Yahoo Answers falls under Social Networking but it has such an important part in the marketing world that it deserves to stand alone.

Firstly you want to have a killer profile page that will stand out and interest people. Then you let yourself loose on the Yahoo Community and watch your list shoot up. Purposely answer questions relating to your niche and in the “more info” box at the bottom include the web address through to your squeeze page.

Squidoo Lenses

Squidoo is a great way of publishing your articles and promoting your affiliate or own products online. Also because you are publishing what is termed as a Lens or Webpage within Squidoo, you gain some of the powerful Google juice that Squidoo possesses. Thus you will find that your Squidoo lenses often get ranked quite quickly and relatively high, Make Quick Money Writing From Home Online

Squidoo is also a great way of growing your opt-in list, especially due to the changes that have taken place within the last couple of months.

Up until recently you were not able to place an opt-in box within your lenses themselves and you had to drive traffic to another site in order to get subscribers.

However, that has now changed and you should look at the following lens, which provides clear instructions on creating an opt-in box within any lens you wish.

Social Bookmarking

Many people are left confused by what Social Bookmarking is all about.

Those that do it swear by it whilst the others wonder what all the fuss is about. I am one of the addicts I have to Bookmark everything my Websites, Blogs, Articles and Press releases to name a few.

But there is much more to it than that!

It’s not just about Search Engine Optimization. It is about building lots of great links too. Through exchanging links with others and telling people what is good and what is not you can build up your business relationship. You can create a following of friends and they will be able to view your products via your Bookmarks and your Profile.

Here is a list of my favourite 20 social bookmarking sites:

www.digg.com

www.a1-webmarks.com

Viral Marketing

I love viral marketing it is a real dream come true, this product that you are currently reading is just that – my very own viral product. It is viral because it has my details all over it and by passing the monies from the actual sale to someone else I am profiting more than the person that is selling it for me.

Don’t get me wrong she will have made her fair share of cash out of it before you bought this copy. But I will have the extra traffic that will flow through to me over the next few years whilst this product is still known on the internet. By just including screen shots from my very own pages I am telling the readers to come and visit me more times than the reader realises. I have links through to my free products pages adding to those on my mailing lists.

Many will look at you crazy when you create a product for free for someone else to sell without taking a share in the profits but that is the point of viral marketing. You don’t actually profit from the sale of the product, just from the next line down of sales that have come from it.

You can implement this same idea into creating free reports, e-books, software and even Blog templates and passing them around the internet for the world to see.

I have a free report called “Become a Wordpress Expert in 24hrs” and it includes lots of links through to my Blog. When I check out my Blog statistics it is truly remarkable how much incoming traffic I have from one report. This is also the case with my mailing list, my main sign up is via my main website and this domain features on all of my reports and e-books and many people join me direct from there.

This is the reason why so many sellers offer Master Resale Rights because they want the whole internet world spreading the word about their products and it will include several of their own links.

Blog Comments

This is often thought of as a rather under rated way of adding subscribers to your mailing list but trust me – IT WORKS!

I have been using this method quite a long time and not only do I get clicks back to my Blog and add subscribers but people actually buy from me.

The secret to it is that the advice must be good and it should complement what the original Blog Post is about. If they are struggling with using Aweber for example give them something to work with doesn’t just tell them to buy your product. Then the domain that you use for returning traffic is to your Aweber Report.

It is very time consuming so I only manage to post on about five Blogs a week, but is still traffic that I wouldn’t have had before.

Testimonials

I have written lots of different Testimonials over the years for people with a range of different products and services. The problem though with testimonials is that you can never tell how popular the product will be which can reflect on how many times people will view your product. This is mainly because when you do one you are catching the seller before they have written the sales page or done the final alterations to it.

The gurus are very hard to spot as they will go under fake pen names and those that I have doubted on the level of sales have done exceptionally well. Its like the saying – you should never judge a book by its cover!

I remember doing one a few months back that had received more than 10,000 views via the sales page in its very first week. Obviously I wish they were all like this but sadly they are not. He was really scruffy looking and he really surprised me with his abilities.

My advice is try and do as many as you can and aim for your own niche as this will be a lot more beneficial to you. Just by doing five a week can add to your traffic and make sure that it is professionally written and comes with a photo this way it will stand out rather well.

Free Submission Directories

This is a great way to add numbers to your list and turn it viral at the very same time. Once you have an e-book or report that you have the rights to along with a good e-cover it is time to spread the word.

Whenever I create a new free product I will submit it to a range of sites and it will grow from there. Owners of e-book shops often rely on these sites to find products to sell and giveaway and you will then have an amazing viral product for very little effort.

Here is a list of my favourite free e-book submission sites:

Once you have followed the methods above your list will grow rather quickly. If you are interested in figures I would say a minimum of 50

and a maximum of 250 depending on which methods you follow and how often.

Think of your subscribers list as your business and actively grow it on a regular basis. It is extremely profitable and if you follow these methods there is no reason whatsoever why you would fail at it.

Even if you grew it by the minimum amount you will still have a very profitable business that you have full control over.

Then when you have the email list set up you can simply email them affiliate products and you are in business. There is no need to develop lots of your own products when there are so many other products available to you.

By going for the internet marketing niche there is a huge scope and you will never run out of products to offer to your mailing list.
