How to create a landing page to capture leads for your affiliate marketing niche.

Landing pages are built in a variety of ways depending on what they are meant to do. The best way to go with affiliate marketing is having a subscription list to build an email list and grow your sales using a landing page.

It may not matter whether you have a website or not. You can build your email list using any social media platform but preferrably, G-mail can work too.

Now, there are many tools that one can use to build a lead capture page but we may not look at all of them. if you already have a website, then it is going to be very simple for you to set up one but it might have some limitations. For websites which are not built on WP, I think there is an alternative for you as well. So, let us get started with WordPress.

In the past, it was not possible to create landing pages within WordPress. The users of the (WP) data management system over the past couple of years have been using alternative page builders like MailChip and then integrate into their WordPress sites. This was very technical and time consuming but luckily, today we have got a new WordPress experience. The ability to build landing pages within WordPress itself using the plugins.

Now, this might not sound as good to those who are not on a business or e-commerce hosting plan because only the two plans give you the ability to install plugins. For those who are on a basic or premium hosting, you might use an alternative which I will show you later on after WordPress but before we proceed, let me ask you these;

1. Do you have your website hosted on a WordPress server?

2. Are you on a business or e-commerce hosting plan?

3. Do you run a business plan on your site or on WordPress.org? If the answer is yes for all questions I have asked above, then you can build an optin page/ landing page within WordPress using either the Beaver plugin or Chartflows plugin. To get started, you need to follow the steps below.

  • Install any of the above mentioned plugins.
  • Activate the plugin you have installed
  • Edit plugin settings

Once you are done installing and editing your plugin, you can it will be ready for use. The most amazing fact about the Beaver theme is that it allows you to Crete pages according to the purpose for which you want them. You will never create a wrong page that doesn’t work perhaps, it is a free plugin for WordPress websites.

All the above steps are very simple to follow you only need to use a desktop computer to avoid getting confused by the kind of display a mobile device has got. It’s pretty easier that it used to be.

How you can build a free email list from Google mail

What is an email list and how can I build it?

In the world of marketing, there is always one aspect that every marketer has to put in mind while they market for services or products. One could probably think that to market is the same as to sell but it is not. The game is very clear if I market for a product and I don’t manage to convince somebody to buy it, it will not get sold. It is very obvious. The reason why people market their products is that they want to give it a broader exposure, get it sold so fast and make more sales but they can not do it effectively without an email list.

People search for different content types depending on what they want to learn or get done online. If they pick the interest in what a website offers, they will want to kind of make it easy to remember that site or service in particular. They can do that by either downloading a mobile app for that website or subscribing to it.

Websites often have their home page set as a static page such that, every visitor who comes to the website through its Url, will automatically land into that page. This is the page normally used to build up an email list.

An email list

This is ideally a group of contacts in your mail account. These contacts can be of people who have subscribed to your services like a newsletter, electronic course, or any free offer like an eBook but email contacts can also be generated or imported from external sources.

Building an email list

Email list building requires a lot of manipulative and convincing ideas. So many people take so long to attain a mear list of 500 contacts. Honestly, maybe they follow a very right path to getting their list built naturally but do you know what will kill their ambition? Patience, patience. I can relate this statement with this paragraph below

If everybody was to be tested and given God’s authority to see how they can resonate and judge like God, I bet 95% of the people worldwide would not be patient with sinners.😜 The degree of the patience that you have can determine your future success…..those who are patient will always have time to think and plan about their future.

Usually, when building a list of followers, you have to be patient enough to yield the final results. It can take you a year or years to have one list of 1000 contacts and if you are a digital marketer, 1000 email contacts are not enough.

For you to build an email list naturally, you must use landing pages. A landing page can enable you to have anyone visiting your website, to signup for either a free offer, a service, or as a customer who wants to purchase a product from your local store sales page.

Now, as I earlier mentioned, getting a list of contacts who are ready to have you deliver messages right to their inboxes is a hard long term project. And you can not force people to subscribe to your list if they do not show any interest in it. This allows you to filter the right audience list you ever need.

Allow people to voluntarily give you their email addresses and telephone numbers if need be, as they sign up on your landing page. All in all, having a landing page may need you to invest a few bucks. You will need a domain name for it and also pay for extra services to be able to get all tools to tools.

I know that not everybody would want to pay a penny or much to have landing pages especially me and those without a website. I would prefer to build my email list feely and faster without paying any money. This is very possible and I know you must be wondering how?, Watch the space below.


Using G-mail to get email contacts for free

Google mail is the most popular email service and is widely used worldwide. Notmally, when you send a text message through your G-mail address to another, the recipient’s address is automatically saved as part of your list within Google mail. And every time you want to send a message to that person, in the recipient’s tab, you want to add only the first letter of their address and it will suggest it so you can choose.

Google mail will do this with every new email address that you send to or receive a message from. Under normalz circumstances, you can hardly build your list to average 10,000 contacts unless you have something that people might be interested in.

Now, if you are a G-mail user, I am very sure that you know that it allows you to import contacts from external sources like your own telephone and Google. In the same way, if I want to have tones of email addresses on my list, I can do it in less than ten minutes.

You can import thousands of external contacts into your email account, text with them, and video chat in real-time as a group. Have you ever heard that your personal information can possibly be sold out to anybody anywhere in the world? The answer is ‘yes’.

Nobody would want their information to be sold out to another company but some websites still do that. When you sign up on a particular insecure website, the system will store all the details you give them about your self. This helps system administrators to generate your email address plus your telephone contact. The database can be sold as a whole to another company.

Obviously, when your personal info is sold, it means that you are liable to receive email messages from anybody who gets to know your address. It may not be harmful but it gets you worrying. I mean you will be surprised yo receive an email from a strange address.

Do you still have this question “how?” Wait, I am not trying to confuse you but here is the thing let me explain. If you are an internet, digital or online marketer, you definitely need this email list, and here is how to get it. When another business website purchases people’s personal data, they either resell it after use or give out the lists for free. Here is where you get the opportunity to acquire an email list freely.

With G-mail, you can just import these contacts and add them to your list. Raidforums is a website that shares databases from other websites and when you sign up, you can get a list of your choice to import to your Gmail contacts.

Of course, the lists to be imported should be of your niche. It will look awkward for you to import a list of people who had signed up for a yoga training newsletter for a different niche say, affiliate marketing courses. That will never work for you because it is not the right audience to send email messages.

Conclusion

Finally, as I conclude, list building is not something you can do only once. You will always have to do it for as long as your business lives. The reason why you should do so is you can not tell if all the contacts in your list are active unless they reply back to your messages.

Always aim at expanding your list to as big as it could be. That way, you will be able to replace your lost contacts that may have been deactivated or that have simply blacklisted you from their trusted list.

Also, remember to follow the rules of email marketing so that you will not be considered as a non-Pro. Now, hands-on job. Here is another article on email marketing techniques that you can use as well.

A nice email marketing to you my friend.

Happy Aniversary With WordPress.com!

WordPress Aniversary present

Today is a unique day and it is one of those big days I chose to mark in my calendar as more important and memorable.

Message from the WP team

It is last year, on this day. It has not been a very long journey though but I should celebrate with you this anniversary. Not a decade has passed, not even years but just a year since I created this blog.

I have always written not only because I wanted to, but because it is what we are supposed to be doing at jeoblog.online. If you were a guest blogger here, then you would definitely be the one I am relating to but hey! We are all together in this.

Many times, I have tried to make more time into writing more content in a bid to make my pages fully loaded but I know it requires more that it takes to write a blog post. And that is not far from the idea – working hard huh!

One thing I have learned and we both have to believe is that whenever there are so many projects or tasks for us to accomplish, we need help. Sometimes we want to adopt and implement a mechanism of self-independence. Working and completing your tasks alone sets you to be good at that.

Many writers wish to be given a helping hand when it comes to writing and the challenge I get is; they can hardly find someone in their niche to write as guests otherwise, it is a good idea.

I don’t regret joining WordPress because of the people whom I have met here. I mean you who is reading this. Together, we have been in this for one year and it is just a beginning. And I hope to build a strong and ambitious community on WordPress in the near future.

Happy 1st aniversary to me😋
