How To Do It Yourself Email Marketing
Are you ready to really start making money online? Do it yourself email marketing is a great way to make an online income. You must start building a list right away if you have not because the money is really in the list.
Here are the stats from the last do it yourself email marketing campaign I ran.
First 1,000 visitors to my site produced 643 opt in subscribers to my list, 38 sales of product # 1, 16 sales of product # 2, and 3 sale of product # 3. Not bad really 57 sales and I more than doubled my money from my advertising expense, but more importantly I have 643 new leads that I can send emails to whenever I want.
So after the first week of emails, which includes 3 messages, I was able to produce another 27 sales. I sent three messages, which started with an automatic welcome email that included a free eBook download, the second message was an article about my subject with a signature with a link to my product, and the third message was my personal review on one of my products. They all had over a 25% open rate and over a 10% click rate.
So let us think about this for a minute. I received my first 1,000 visitors in a 2 week period and got 643 subscribers. If I continue this for 20 weeks I will have a list of 12,860 subscribers. My first weeks sales from my email marketing was 27 out of 643 bought, so percentage wise that is 4.2%. If I send this out to my list of 12,860 I would get 540 sales and just to give you an idea I would make well over $ 16,000.
So how do you become a Do it yourself Email Marketing genius? Forget the genius part and just do your own email marketing. Start with these three steps.
Do it Yourself Email Marketing step # 1 – Learn the basics
The next thing you have to do is learn the basics. You can spend $ 20 – $ 30 and get a good email marketing eBook to learn from. A few pointers for free would be to only send to your lists 3 times max a week unless you are giving away a free 5 day course for signing up, do not get just just promoting to your list send them content too, and be personable with your list because you are not a robot and they will not appreciate it.
Do it Yourself Email Marketing step # 2 – Learn how to write compelling messages
You will probably have to do a lot of research or spend about $ 40- $ 50 to get a strong eBook for message writing. The only thing is it is so important and can make such a difference that you are better off with the best out there. (I will only recommend Inside the List, it is the best period) One tip on this subject is to watch your spam score (another benefit of Aweber because it is calculated for you). The lower it is the better and if it gets to high your messages will never get read.
Do it Yourself Email Marketing step # 3 – Sign up for an autoresponder service
An autoresponder will allow you to set up your messages ahead of time and when someone subscribed to your list they automatically send each message when you want it to go. For example, if you were to subscribe to one of my lists you would go into my database at Aweber (the only autoresponder I recommend) and you would automatically receive message # 1.
Then, if I have it set up to send message # 2 to you 3 days later you will get it 3 days later and so on. I can also go in and send a broadcast message to my entire list at any time, too.
These are the three steps to becoming a do it yourself email marketing guru and now you know exactly where to get started. There is a little bit of money involved, but you will be building a lifetime of income for yourself because the money is in the list.
