Here’s why most people are doomed to fail in Internet Marketing – they have no clear goal to work toward. And, on top of that, they don’t break things down so they are easy to accomplish.
Let’s end that. Your goal is simple – 100 people on an email list, and your first $100 in profit generated through Internet Marketing. Why such a simple goal? Because this is where it all starts.
If you figure out how to put 100 people on a list, then you can do the same thing to make it 200… 400… 800… 1600… or more. It’s up to you. Same thing with the cash. That’s why this works, and why it’s something you should focus on if you’ve been struggling to make any money online at all or build an email list.
What’s Your Ethical Bribe?
Right now I’m going to show you a very simple, easy to execute plan to accomplish this. This is not rocket science. It’s not especially creative at all. But by golly it works.
To build an email list, you must give an incentive for people to sign up for your mailing list. In other words – a bribe. The best bribe is a simple free report… much like the one you’re reading right now. Free reports are about the easiest thing in the world to create with the right approach.
Let’s talk about one such approach that anyone can use. They’re called email interviews. Here’s how it works.
You create a list of a half dozen questions or so around one central theme. For example, let’s say we wanted to create a free report on “How to write sales letters that make you money!”
What would we do? We’d find as many people in that niche who sell stuff on how to write sales letters. Then we’d send them all the same basic list of questions. It might look like this:
- Explain how you got your first success with writing a winning sales letter?
- What is the biggest mistake people make when writing sales letters?
- What is the most critical factor for creating a winning sales letter?
- What is the biggest emerging trend you see for using sales letters in online marketing?
- What is your formula for writing headlines for your sales letters?
- Why is mastering writing sales letters so important to Internet marketing?
There you go. You simply email each of the people you found who are experts in writing sales letters and you ask them to write a few paragraphs for each answer, and send it back to you when they’re done.
Also, let them know you will allow them to put in a one paragraph “call to action” at the end of the answers where they can promote their latest product as long as you can use your affiliate
link for the promotion.
