The Importance of Having a List
Now we are getting into the stuff you really want to hear about! The money is in the list! We bet you have nev er heard that phrase
before (being completely sarcastic of course). If you have been in internet marketing for some time now, you know how important it is to have a list of your own.
In fact, ev ery single day you hav e probably heard the phrase “the money is in the list”. Have you ev er wondered why you have heard that so many times?
BECAUSE IT’S TRUE!!!!
Trust us, we used to do my best to rank my affiliate websites in Google, and sure, it might hav e worked for a bit, but then Google would change their algorithm and we’d lose our rankings and income.
You aren’t alone if you too are tired of playing this cat and mouse game with Google, so we decided to FINALLY take the adv ice of others and build up our own lists.
While we all built our lists in slightly different ways from each other, we can tell you right now, that’s when our business took off.
Why Is A List So Powerful?
When you have a list of your own, you have the ability to send traffic wherever you want, whenever you want. You will be laughing at all the people who are still trying to rank their sites in Google.
Imagine what it would be like to get approved for a product, then just send out an email and collect your INSTANT affiliate commissions.
Sound like the life you want?
Good! Because that’s the life you are going to hav e once you start building that list!
The other major benefit to having a list of your own is the fact that your conv ersion rates skyrocket. You will notice that conv ersion rates are much higher when the traffic comes from your list instead of coming from your website.
Why? Because you hav e a relationship with the people on your list. They know you, they trust you, they like you. You aren’t just some random person whose website they happened to stumble upon in the search engines.
It is typical to hav e conversion rates anywhere between 10-30% when the traffic comes from your list. When it comes from a website or blog, the conv ersion rate is usually around 1-2%.
Meaning if you send an email and 100 subscribers click the link and v isit the affiliate offer, you can expect to make 20 sales on a $7 product with 100% commissions.
20 sales from a list every time you send an email puts you in that awesome position of really thinking about quitting your job and many of you might go ahead and do it!
We hope you do because once you don’t have to stay up late on the computer and get up early for your J.O.B., you can grow even faster.
The same techniques that get one sale per email are the same as getting 20, 50 or even 100 sales an email like Lee Murray routinely does multiple times a month.
But let’s get back to the training…
This means you will make more money and won’t have any problems getting accepted by product creators to promote your own product.
We will get into your list building strategy in a bit, but I want you to 100% understand the fact that having a list is ESSENTIAL if you want to make a living off affiliate marketing. You can’t rely on Google, we can promise you that. But you can rely on your list.
