Re: 6 Ways To Promote Your List

Building Your List is “Key”  To Your On or Offline Success.
- No List = No Customers
- No Customers  = No Money
- No Money = No Business!

There are hundreds of ways to promote and build your mailing list. Below are 6 Ways To Promote your list that you can starting tacking action on immediately!

1. Ethical Bribery! Not in the monetary sense, but in the “Let me make you an offer you can’t refuse” sense. Offer a free, original ebook to anyone who subscribes to your email list. This method works especially well if your subscriber can only get the ebook from you. Don’t have an ebook to give away? Try writing 5-10 original articles on your niche topic and compiling them into a PDF. It’s a quick, easy and cost-free solution to create a unique product.

2. Tweet It Baby! You gotta love those 140 characters you can use on twitter. Let your Twitter followers know when you publish a new newsletter. Tweet the link to your subscription form.

Don’t forget to ask your followers to retweet (RT) your posts promoting your list.

3. Add a subscription form to every page of your website. The upper right side is considered the best location, but if that doesn’t work, choose a spot and add it to every page.

4. Offer email list-only specials, coupons and information. Make sure your email list gets your best of your best, not just rehashed material from your blog or other publications.

5. Update your Facebook status with a note about your newsletter. Encourage your FB friends and family to subscribe and tell their followers. Be sure to thank them when they do.

6. Promote your mailing list instead of your website. Then use your mailing list to promote your other offerings. Your goal is to capture the names and contact info of your prospects and customers. Once you do that, you can steer them to your website, products and services.

Motivating Your Affiliates

Re: Motivating Your Affiliates

Motivating your affiliates is critical to the success of your affiliate program. At first glance, being paid a good commission for a good product is reasonable.

It starts the affiliate relationship with your company. However, money alone  is not neccessarily the only motivating factor for an affiliate to promote your product.

Sometimes an affiliate likes a product but hates the customer service. Other times an affiliate wants more promo tools.

That’s why it is so important that “YOU” stay in touch with your affiliates. Find out what they need. Find out what they want. What excites them? What drives them? To find this kind of information out, you need to communicate with them.

As I stated earlier, money is not the only motivating facotr, it’s a strong one, but not the only one.

For intance we recently started an affiliate contest for Armand Morin’s Brave The Wave, Experience Event coming up June 26,27 in Orlando Flroida.
 Here is my link… http://bit.ly/9KiB8j 

We decided to have an affiliate contest and the first prize is a Apple iPad! Turns out affiliates just “LOVE” affiliate contests!

Watch the video below. I bumped into Super Affiliate Connie Rageen Green at the airport in Minneapolis today. We were both returning from Armand Morin’s AM2  private event. 

Let Connie tell you in her own words the power of an affiliate contest…

Here’s to Motivating Your Affiliates,

Re: Three Keys To Affiliate Management

My good friend Stu Mclaren introduced and trained me to be an affiliate manager in 2005. When ever I am at an event people often ask me, what specifically does a affiliate manger do?

I share the following…
Affiliate management can be divided into 3 area:
1. Recruit
2. Train
3. Motivate

Affiliates are the life blood for many marketers businesses.

An affiliate manager is always on the lookout for new quality affiliates they can recruit. Bringing on 3-5 new affilates a month can have huge financial rewards by the end of the year.

Training and providing new tools for affiliates is also extremely important for any affiliate program.

Keeping affiliates motivated is critical to the success of every affiliate program. One of the ways to keep affiliates engaged and motivated is to hold a monthy contest or special promotion.

Depending on the specific affiliate program, there are many other activities that a affiliate manager may do on a daily basis.

Once again, the core activities for an affiate manager include Recruiting, Traning and keeping them Motivated…

For Your Affiliate Program,
