I Need Money Now!

While checking my many emails today – I ran across one that I think needs to be addressed here for all to read. I’ve previously made it clear on this site that list building is not a ‘quick fix’ or a ‘get rich quick’ scheme – it’s a way to build an online business that can be profitable far beyond many other sort of online enterprises. But it takes money and time to develop.

So first, let’s take a look at what a subscriber has given as his goals: [Read more…]

How Can You Afford Solo Ads?

Solo Ads Equal MoneyI’ve gotten emails from some people on my list asking for more information about free methods of driving traffic because they don’t have extra cash for Solo Ads. I can empathize, (or, as one famous politician puts it, “I can feel your pain…”) since I can remember when squeezing $15, $30, or $45 dollars for another Solo ad was something I had to budget for. I remember just how painful that was… I really did have to cut out some extras in my life to free up some money for Solo ads.   So I really do understand the problem that some of my subscribers have.  It’s far less painful to work with free traffic…  But as I explain in my ebook, List Lightning – paid traffic is immediate, and free traffic is slow.

Gmail Spam – Why It Can Kill Your Business…

If you’ve done what I recommend in my manual – List Lightning (and indeed, what is only common sense): you’ve subscribed to your own list. And if you’re careful about your business, you’re keeping an eye on your spam folder – to make sure that none of your newsletter emails end up there.

But even the very best list marketers can end up there… Today I found [Read more…]

Have You Bought The Lottery Ticket Yet?

Slow Down - Money AheadIf you’ve been around the Internet for any length of time, and wanted to learn how to make money, then I’m sure you’ve seen many products that offered fast income with very little work. In fact, I’m quite sure you must have bought a few of them…

And, having bought that magic push button program that showed you pictures of mansions and fancy cars … I have but one small question:

Has Your Life Turned Around?

Or are you still waiting for that magic flood of visitors desperately trying to fill your bank account with money? [Read more…]

Can You Master Your Emotions?

Angry ManThe true answer for honest people is no – you can’t master your emotions… but most buying decisions are based on emotion. Think back to your last purchase… and identify what led you up to the point where you reached for your purse or wallet… And in most cases, it was emotion that led you there.

Now obviously, emotion isn’t the basis for every buying decision… I’m hungry, so I stock up at the grocery store. No emotion there… my car is low on gas, and I stop in at the gas station… so clearly, not everything is based on some emotion, but many buying decisions are.

For example: [Read more…]

Dozens of Websites – All Making You Money

Sound good?

There’s a few people on the Warren Forum that have dozens, even, in some cases, hundreds of websites – all busy earning them a few dollars (or even $50+) each month. Now, I hate to think about the SEO required to keep such a network of websites going… fresh content from time to time, new backlinks appearing so that Google believes them to be active…

But in list building – you don’t need quantity – you need quality. [Read more…]

Important? Or Not…

I’m often amused by other list builders – I subscribe and watch a number of them. (and if you’re not doing the same, you’re losing excellent free tutorials on how to do it right… or wrong.)

I’ve stated in my manual that the more your email series looks like just another email from a friend, the better off you’ll be… you’ll have higher open rates, and more trust from your list. One of the ways you look just like another ordinary friend is to use your NAME in the Name field. Let’s look at a small selection of today’s emails – and see what we can learn: [Read more…]

How Often Should You Email Your List?

This is a question that has just about as many answers as there are list owners…

But you’re going to be privileged to hear what I have to say on the topic…

Then you can ignore it – and do what you want to do anyway…  😆

First, let’s establish just what my goals are… because if you have different goals, you’re going to have a different way of approaching this topic. If you’ve been reading this blog, you may recall a post where I showed my preferred email series – it looks like this: [Read more…]
