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.

How to be a good online marketer without spamming people’s email inboxes.

There is a difference between being Poor and being Broke, Broke is temporary, Poor is Eternal” – Robert Kiyosaki 

Success in business isn’t about what you do, it’s about who you are and how you think… and bad habits die hard.

Changing how you think can be one of the most challenging things to do but it’s undoubtedly the most important. 

One of the biggest lessons I learned when building a network marketing company several years ago was this: “Don’t spend your time with the people that need it, spend your time with the people that deserve it”…

Many of us have a desire to help the people who we think need help the most but the reality is that we can’t help everyone. In fact, we can’t help anyone who isn’t ready to help themselves, and trying to do so isn’t just a waste of our time but it takes time away from the people who deserve it (the people who we can actually help).

If you have ever spent hours of your time to help someone just to have them quit… or worse, do nothing (at least you know where the quitter stands) then you know what I’m talking about. I’m not saying these are bad people, but as Entrepreneurs, they are just not mentally ready to take the next step (and trying to convince them otherwise is a waste of time).

This also applies to the Entrepreneur who wants help from everyone but never invests in their own business. 

Or the person who wants to learn how to sell but replies to emails with “stop selling me stuff” instead of just clicking the little “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of every email that is sent. As an avid email marketer, I get a kick out of these emails every time…

And the list goes on…

My point here is this: Respect your time, avoid these groups, and be very selective on how and who you chose to spend your time with. 

And while we’re on the subject of respecting your time…

How I get to promote on social media.

I am kinder buzzy one of these days but at least I spare time to get to write an idea here. So, however much I become so committed, I can never forget to put up something.

If you have to ignoring social media, it is high time you started posting on your accounts. If you haven’t joined any, do so because, you need to connect to your audiences and make your content discoverable.

Now, I am pretty much convinced and you too should be. That in order to generate an income passively online, you need to see these three aspects. The key factors which every online business must observe to leverage the opportunity of having a continuous income flow.

  1. A website
  2. Content
  3. Traffic

These three aspects seriously matter and you can never avoid them. The only option you will have Is to quit if you can not manage these. You need traffic and it can not come without content and also, content can not be without a website huh!

Look! If you are doing affiliate marketing/ making money from home with affiliate marketing, you are one who needs this traffic very much because, for every sale, you will make, there must have been traffic somewhere because you will hardly earn a commission if your traffic level is low.

However, it does not come as much as you would want it. It takes a couple of activities to be done to set up traffic sources especially those which are external. External sources like Facebook, Twiter, YouTube, Tumblr, Pinterest, and Instagram can boost website traffic externally.

All the above sources are social media sites and who does not use social media? It sounds like a toolbox for traffic generation and this is not far from what is real.

When you make the best use of social media sites, building automatically targeted traffic will not be a problem.

Using social media to drive traffic to a website.

You have to produce high-quality content on your website, build both internal and external links to your website to drive outside traffic.

To do this, you will always ensure to proofread and dig back to your old content. Make sure there are no writing typos in your work. Work that is free of typing errors is ideally what ranks on Google so easily with appropriate key phrases.

How opt-in pages are a powerful tool for getting a trusted audience

Opt-in pages are also known as lead capture pages or landing pages. Anyone having a website should clearly know that generating traffic from external sources can truly be automated. And automated traffic can simply mean targeted audience.

A target audience is ideal for your online business

Apart from automation tools like softwares, opt-in pages turn out to be best for email marketing even though they involve a lot of work. The power of an opt-in page is that it helps you to build an audience of trust.

Most of the organic traffic that you get to your website is often non targeted because it could come from any source. It could be Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Google or bring. Wherever you receive it from, keep it in mind that it may not be a right audience.

How do you find the right audience though?

A right audience is when you have a list of people follow your service or subscribe to your service.

Depending on the type of business you are running, it is quite noted that a landing page is a tool to drive people who are interested in your business. People who have committed themselves to your website as you promise them something good when they subscribe. These kind of traffic is the most trusted because you know exactly who to reach out to.

If you are running an affiliate marketing business, you will hardly make a sale on any of your affiliate programes. That is because you do not have a good audience. A opt-in page is the only tool to help you build up your email list for affiliate marketing.

It should be noted that a blog is not a good traffic source. If you have a blog, your fellow bloggers can never be your audience. This is because their blogs are built on different ideas which may not similar to yours. You may chance to attract some of your fellow bloggers but not as many. That is why it is so important to consider building an email list for whatever type of business you run.

Your subscribers list is ideal and is present because you used an opt-in page(s) to filter out the wrong audience and retained the right ones. That’s is the power of a landing page.

Free offers are very vital and without them, your opt-in pages are dead.

Everyone loves free offers and this is the idea behind opt-in pages. Free offers help to convince a page’s visitors and they will subscribe to your list because they want to get that free offer.

Think of that one thing which is so connected to your business that you can offer for no cost. It can be a downloadable file which will be delivered after one signs up to your list. You could also provide a service as a free offer to make people subscribe? Now, a landing page does not truly work alone. It works with a set of other pages to complete a subscription process which I will I am yet to tell you below.

Do you want to apply those very techniques as stated above?

If yes, below is a recap of what I have just said. A summary of what to do to build up a trusted audience that will give you high quality organic traffic. Whether you are running an affiliate marketing website, a freelance website, an agency website or a only be store, you need a landing page to find your audience. Here is what you will do.

Steps

  1. Create a landing page/opt-in page/ lead capture page with a nice call to action button. This will be the page to welcome visitors to your sites services.
  2. Set up an auto-responder for your subscribers. The responder is meant to send automated emails to people who subscribe to your list or service.
  3. Create a bridge/squeeze page whose purpose is to encourage a person to head over to the thank you page complete the subscription process.
  4. Create a thank you page to appreciate them for subscribing.
  5. Integrate your pages to ensure a continuous flow from page to page up to the thank you page which is the very last part of it.

You are now ready to launch your first campaign. Get your landing page discovered by advertising it. It will be shown to the people of your target who then subscribe willingly.

To get started, you can build all these pages using mailchip

Affiliate marketing tips from best affiliates.

Hey, Marketer! Still, stranded with your affiliate niche? Here are some extra tips to consider.

25 Affiliate Best Practices

1.    Always be selective when choosing products to promote. Products need to be relevant to your audience and high quality. The business needs to be honest and trustworthy. Remember, this is your reputation on the line.

2.    When promoting products, don’t focus on the price of the product but the benefits buyers will receive. If there is a unique offer or discount price, that’s a bonus.

3.    Ask your audience for feedback. Ask what they are struggling with. Ask how they like what you are emailing and writing about. Ask if they purchased a product through your recommendation, how they are linking it or what results they are seeing. Showing you care helps build strong bonds with your audience.

4.    When promoting affiliate links, ensure your posts or emails offer plenty of value. It should be able to stand alone, whether or not you include a promotion.

5.    Don’t promote without a plan. Start with the goal of your campaign, then search for right product to promote. Randomly promoting products can lead to low commissions and worse, broken trust with your audience.

6.    Don’t sell or include affiliate links in every email you send. Subscribers get tired of being bombarded with offer after offer. Send some messages that just talk about what you’re doing or offer a tip or two without any type of promotion.

7.    Spend time building relationships with your subscribers. People who feel connected with you are more likely to trust your word and buy based on your recommendations.

8.    Look for programs that offer a good commission, 25% or better if possible for example, Jvzoo. Those offering low commissions may not generate enough commission for your effort.

9.    When searching for products or services to promote, see what the movers and shakers in your niche are promoting. Industry leaders often vet the companies they promote quite well before recommending them.

10. Track your opens, clicks and buy statistics to see which product sell well, which types of promotional material generate the most sales, which headlines get the most opens and so forth.

11. Look for businesses who offer affiliates pre-made content to help you promote their products. You can often find emails, images blog posts, list of benefits, sales angle suggestions and more from companies.

12. If products from a particular company is popular with your audience, but the company’s affiliate center is lacking, contact them to see if they could provide you with some pre-written material.

13. Ask your audience what their favorite companies, products or types of products are. Ask what they look for when buying products. This will give you an idea of which features you need to look for when searching for products to promote.

14. Make sure you reach the maximum number of people possible by ensuring your website and emails are optimized for mobile devices. If your audience cannot read your messages, they cannot buy.

15. Take time to learn about what makes great headlines, lead-ins and call-to-actions. Better headlines lead to more opens. Better lead-ins get people reading and better call-to-actions generate more sales.

16.  If you’re doing a big promotion, and including bonus items, create a custom landing page for the offer. On this page, include details of what people get not only from the product you are promoting, but your bonuses as well.

An example of a product offer that can be downloaded after someone signs up on you your list.

17. Make use of all types of content to promote the products. Some people prefer reading, others would rather watch a video, some may prefer to hear from you live. The more ways you reach out to your audience, the more sales you’ll make.

18. If you don’t already have one, choose a reputable email service. There’s nothing more frustrating than spending days creating a great email campaign only to have a big portion of your messages get blocked or filtered.

19. Make sure your website and lead magnets are up to par and offer excellent information. The bigger you grow your list, the more exposure you get for your recommendations.

20.  Segment your list so you can better match product offers to subscribers. The closer the match, the bigger the sales.

21. Test higher priced products with low-to-mid-range products to see, on average, how much your audience is willing to spend.

22. Don’t forget to promote complimentary products. For example, if you promote a training course on losing weight. The next week or so, you could promote a more specific product that compliments weight loss.

Weight loss is one product category that has got more and more traffic compared to all the others in the market. of

23. When promoting a special offer, mention any upsells available. This gives your audience a heads up that they will be presented with more than one offer. …but do so in an excited way.

24. Ask companies if you can use their product photos in your promotions for the product. They will usually allow it and may also let you pull a few points from their sales pages to use in your promotions.

25. Regularly check your affiliate links to make sure they are still working.

All the above are really good jobs to look up to but I should whisper a secret to you. Not all the jobs I have mentioned above or not all online jobs are best for every person.

We very well know that if I have a skill and experience in a certain area/field when I search for a job, it has to be that one which is co-related to the skill that I have and often, I am required to have some experience in the field, Here comes affiliate marketing, a job that is meant for anyone and here I am, doing it with much pleasure and pride.

All you need to build a long-lasting affiliate marketing business.

So, we have to discuss affiliate marketing in a concrete way right? Yes, in this post, I’m going to tell you all It takes to become very successful in the affiliate marketing business. This is to help you build a long-lasting business that can never collapse other than temporal commissions.

It is very simple to get there but very technical as it involves some serious investment. However, the affiliate network you are using, the products you promote, how you promote, do matter a lot and should be taken not as easy. DO NOT send buyers directly to your affiliate links. It is a waste of time.

You should choose a good affiliate network, a good/ best selling product/s and promote it/them in the right way to get increased sales. Consider taking email marketing as the best technique to capture recurring sales.

Procedure for affiliate marketing.

Below are steps to follow in order to build a complete permanent affiliate marketing business. Simply follow these steps.

STEP I

Find an affiliate network

It is important to research on affiliate-networks before you choose one. Some have got higher conversion rates while others have the opposite. Some affiliate networks have strict policies which may not favour you as an affiliate so, be keen when choosing one.

STEP-II

Look for a good product

Finding a product to promote should not be something very difficult because it is just a matter of clicking on it and getting approved by its vendor. However, you should consider the selling rate of the product and how competitive it may be in the market. You need to promote a product which is less competitive so you can sell it easily.

STEP-III

Set up an affiliate website

Once you are done with these three steps, you are good to begin promoting the product but as I told you earlier on, that I would talk about this in concrete, this is not the end. There are still more steps to take.

STEP- IV

Build an email list.

Since email marketing is the best, you need an email list. This will be the people you market product by sending marketing emails to them. So, in order to build a large email list of about 100+ contacts, you have to build a landing page first. A landing page is a micro-website whose purpose is only one- call to action. eg; Sign up here or subscribe to our newsletter. To build a landing page, simply use MailChimp.

STEP-V

Set up an autoresponder.

Now you have your landing page and let’s assume it is running ok! And when people sign up or subscribe to your page, there has to be a message to thank that person for example ‘Hello John! Thank you for signing up we are glad I have you as one of us.’ This is what an autoresponder will do even without you doing anything. It is automatic and this will help make subscribers feel convenient. So, to set up an autoresponder, you may need to buy a software which does that.

STEP-VI

Create a bridge page

A bridge page helps to separate a landing page from a product being promoted. It acts as a barrier between the two. A bridge page normally contains a few words and it is meant to encourage a buyer to continue to the bext web page. In page wards, it should contain something like this.

Congratulations, you are almost there.

Tap the button below to continue

STEP-VII

Once you have set up a bridge page, its time to begin running campaigns. Use the email list that you built. You need about 100 contacts and that not a very bad number to begin with.

Now, you have a complete system setup and here is how it will work.

  • You will be sending customised emails to your contacts. These emails will either contain a direct link to the affiliate network or a link to your bridge page which will redirect them to the affiliate product.
Email marketing still rocking.

Up from the current $59 billion in 2020, with much of this revenue from mobile players.

Residual income

Once you refer a player, that player is tagged to your affiliate account for the lifetime of that player. This means, every time the player returns to play, you will earn a percentage of the casino’s net profits generated from this player.
