Finding The Right Affiliate Program
There's allot that goes into building an online business from the ground up. It take's money, time, and much grit. Many first time internet marketer's fail or give up within the first year of getting started. That can be from a lack of education, resources, or result's. One of the most important assets to have in your business is your email list. Yes, that's the one of the very first thing's taught to all marketer's is to build your list. But how do you do that? I remember when I first got started and I literally knew nothing about list building, landing pages, traffic generation and providing good content. As I progressed through my trainings I became better at certain skill's, one of the first was building my email list. In order to build a list your going to need an auto-responder in place. Auto-responder's are e-mail's that are sent automatically to your mailing list subscribers based on rules and intervals that you define. A very convenient automation feature that save's you allot of time from sending individual email's to each one of your subscriber's. There are many well-known auto-responder service's that can be used like, MailChimp, Aweber and Getresponse. I've personally used Getresponse and Aweber. Aweber is my personal favorite because it's cost effective and there's no issue getting email's sent successfully to subscriber's. Not only that but u can monetize your leads later if they don't make a purchase immediately upon sign-up. That's were providing good email content comes into play. Next would be to create a high converting landing page that would capture your leads emails and plug them into your auto-responder. Your lead capture page should highlight what it is your offering in exchange for your subscriber's email information. Be sure to disable double opt-in when your configuring you auto-responder to your lead capture page so that you won't lose subscriber's.There are a few really good lead capture page service's with the best being ClickFunnel's. I would personally suggest LeadPage's as an alternative for cost reason's. Then after you have acquired your lead's, nurture them with good email follow-ups. Provide solutions to their problems or the roadblocks that they may face when getting started for the first time. If you know of any good traffic source's or product's/service's that can help accelerate the result's in their business, it would be best to share it with your list of subscriber's, hence providing good content. If your not camera shy, video content can be very useful as well, it could even help with free traffic on YouTube. Speaking of traffic, generating traffic is probably the biggest hurdle many marketer's face when trying to build and expand their online business. It also took some time for me to learn and master many of the traffic technique's like PPC, SEO, Facebook Ads, and Solo Ads. I currently use about 3 traffic source's in order to obtain my subscriber's with Facebook Ads being my #1 go to source, then it would be Bing and Google. If you would like to hit the ground running I would recommend Solo Ads for fast traffic and to build your list very quickly. When choosing Solo Ads as a traffic provider, there must be extensive research before purchasing from a Solo Ad vendor. The easiest way to find a reputable Solo Ad provider is to visit a website called Udimi.com. Udimi provides ID-verified sellers, top-quality traffic filter, unique rating system and custom tools that will generate leads and sale's for you. Just be sure to do your homework first, it can become quite costly if your not seeing an ROI (return on investment). For further references, your personal email list is the best traffic source to utilize for new or existing product promotion's which it's why it's so crucial that your always capturing your leads and building your list. Last but not least, choosing the right affiliate program that helps overcome many of the pitfalls internet marketer's face when starting an online business. I've been in many affiliate programs over the years and from personal experience I would recommend Wealthy Affiliate to any newbie or seasoned marketer.
