The opt-in list is really a very important part, I would even say a crucial part of any company big or small on the internet. Whether you have a small affiliate business or are big like Amazon. The opt-in list is really the engine of online business.
For those who do not yet know what an opt-in list is, it’s very simple: It is about people who subscribe through an opt-in form on your website. Then these people who become your subscribers receive emails from your autoresponder where you can offer them things to sell or lessons to download and many other lucrative things.
The emails that you send to your subscribers are not spam because by subscribing to your list these people have consented to receive offers from you. If they no longer want to receive emails, they will unsubscribe and they will no longer hear from you. By sending your subscribers newsletters you can keep them informed of what is happening on your website or you can campaign to offer them products that have just arrived on the internet market.When we say that the money is in the list, it is not a joke, the money can really be in the list an I will show it to you.
PEOPLE DON’T LIKE OPT-IN LIST
List building is very important, but not many people enjoy signing up. In fact, many people think that promotional emails are annoying and unnecessary. In order for this not to happen to you, you absolutely need to provide them with a newsletter or promotional material that is always of good quality, this is what will help you to grow your list. Of course, if you have a blog, your blog content can be used as a good starting point for building a list. Indeed, people want to learn things with good, well-written articles. They will always come back to you if they know you have articles with real answers to their questions.
Personally, I was able to create an opt-in list very quickly thanks to the program of my mentor John Thornhill. It is true that its program is very interesting and attracts a lot of people. I didn’t think when I started that so many people could be interested in taking the time to learn how to earn a real income on the internet. Because yes, it really does work, but like all good things in life, you have to take a little time to learn. But I do not regret having read his report and being able to help others to do like me today.
Either way, before you even think about making money, the most important thing for you is to have a thick layer of subscribers. This is the only way you can start putting dollars on the table. So I’m going to give you 7 tips that can really help you. Let’s go!
1 / MAKE MONEY BY PLACING ADVERTISEMENTS THANKS TO YOUR BIG OPT-IN LIST
Companies love lists with lots of subscribers. It’s a way for them to advertise. These companies will be willing to pay more or less a lot of money to place their banners or their ads on your list if you have a really thick list. I strongly advise against selling your list because it is this list that will allow you to earn money. If you sell your goose that lays the golden eggs, you will have nothing left except the dollars that you will have earned by selling it. No, what pays off is getting you paid for your list so that other businesses can benefit.
2 / MAKE PAY FOR PERFORMANCE WITH COMPANIES, THANKS TO YOUR OPT-IN LIST
First of all, you need to find companies that are related to the niche of your website. What I mean is that it wouldn’t make sense to put you in touch with a cooking site when you have a video game niche! Your subscribers would not understand and may be able to unsubscribe from your opt-in list. When you have found the companies that are right for you, they can give you a brief description of what they can offer and give you their links. It is with these links that the magic begins! It will be very simple, your subscribers who will receive your e-mail click on these links which will send them on the site of the company and you will be paid for it. It is this system which is called Pay For Performance.
3/GET PAID BY PERCENTAGE OF SALES THANKS TO YOUR BIG OPT-IN LIST
It works a bit like affiliate, but the difference is that you won’t need to chase after possible affiliates. No, everything will happen from your opt-in list. You will need to make a deal with other companies that are still on the same list as you. This deal will focus on sales percentages. All the purchases that their customers coming from your list will make thanks to the newsletters that you send to your subscribers, you will receive a percentage of the sales that will have been made through you. So the more sales you make, the more money will flow into your pocket.
4 / SELL PRODUCTS TO YOUR LIST BY MAKING 100% PROFITS
It is very simple! All you need to do is find products on other websites that might be of interest to subscribers to your opt-in list. Via your newsletter, you will place a description of these products with a photo. I assure you that if you have a big list there will always be people who will be interested in products related to your niche, so there will definitely be some of your subscribers who will want to make a purchase. If this happens and I assure you that it will, you will have to order the product yourself and sell it to your subscribers at the price you want and make a profit.
When you offer products with value, you can earn good money. I have done this with John Thornhill products which are all of great quality and I can assure you that until today I am still making money on my list with them.
5 / MAKE MONEY WITH YOUR OPT-IN LIST THANKS TO YOUR BLOG ARTICLES
Today we are in the how-to fashion, people are ready to shell out money for information that help them acquire knowledge on various subjects. What you could do is create a compilation of your articles that explain a method on one or more topics and make a report or e-book well put together so that there is harmony between each topic. You can offer it to your existing list or sell it or use it to get your list to buy one of your affiliate products.
This is one of the methods that John Thornhill taught me and thanks to the report he generously gave me, I was able to use it to create my first opt-in list. I promise you this is an incredibly effective method!
6 / CREATE A NETWORK THANKS TO YOUR SUBSCRIBERS
Make your subscribers to your opt-in list want to invite people to subscribe to your list. You can do it in the form of a contest or a challenge by offering an interesting price to the one who has made the most subscribers during a specific period of time. But there are plenty of ways to build excitement so that your subscribers want to bring other people to your list. Be inventive because the more people there are on your list the more people will be willing to click on your affiliate links, make purchases and increase your income.
7 / MAKE YOUR SUBSCRIBERS FROM YOUR OPT-IN LIST YOUR PARTNERS
Let me explain, a subscriber who knows who can trust the information you provide will be willing to pay for that information. So feel free to use your subscribers as sales partners. This can increase traffic to your site because your subscribers can truly become the living heart of your success. This way, you won’t need Facebook or any other method to gain traffic. In short, you can be self-sufficient.
I hope this article will help you grow your list exponentially. The list is the basis of all internet business, it is thanks to them that you can grow bigger and bigger and it has no limits. If you want to learn how to grow your list even faster don’t hesitate to watch John Thornhill’s free webinar just below, you will learn a lot of interesting things there.
