Give Me 5 Minutes – And I’ll Show You How To Build A List
Before you read any further I want you to take 30 seconds and think about this – How are you currently generating traffic to your affiliate links, and more importantly are you sending the traffic directly to the affiliate page?
By send people directly to the affiliate page you are building a list, but it’s for the owner of the affiliate website! If you were to spend 5 minutes creating a squeeze page then suddenly you are building your own list, and as we all know the money is in the list.
A squeeze page is a very simple one page website that will summarize the key feature / benefit of the affiliate product you want to promote. The squeeze page forces people who are interested in the topic to opt-in to your list for more details.
To build a squeeze page you need to have an autoresponder. The autoresponder will generate the html code for your opt-in box, and allow you to forward the visitor onto the original affiliate page. By capturing the address first not only are you building a list, but you’re greatly increasing your chances of making an affiliate sale.
Even if the visitor doesn’t buy the product today you now have them on your list, so you can harness the power of the autoresponder to send a follow-up email in a few days, and send them back to the sales page again.
In summary you can see how spending 5 minutes to create a squeeze page will help you build your list and increase the number of affiliate sales that you make.
