Autoresponders: The Fortune Is In The Follow Up!

by admin in email marketing tips

Comments Off Comments

Working an internet business means competing with
countless other opportunities. It’s a “mind blitz” out
there in cyberspace!

Enticing ideas about online businesses bombard people
like confetti at a wedding.

So..The big question is…How do you keep someone’s
attention after the first click?

It’s a fact. Follow up is the lifeblood of your
business! And it can be done easily and effectively.

If well planned, autoresponders can turbo charge any
business plan. When you first start advertising, you
can use a different autoresponder for each ad. This
provides an easy tracking system that any newbie can
use.

Develop your use of autoresponders as both an art and
a science. Invest some time and energy. And don’t be
timid about stretching your creative imagination.

Statistics prove that less than 5% of closed sales
occur on the first contact. 85% of sign-ups require
up to 7 or more followups. Don’t ignore this fact!

However… who has the time for this much followup
when working hundreds or thousands of leads a month?

One of the best ways to manage your lead flow is
through the use of autoresponders. They can take
your prospects by the hand and lead them straight
into your organization. Try it! It works for me!

I have take this proven plan a step further, and it is
paying off handsomely.

I love my primary business. Although it is the most
lucrative business I’ve tried, prospects worry about
having the time to build a business.

Autoresponders can come to your rescue. Once the
autoresponders have done the recruiting for me, the
next objective is to get the training done quickly and
effectively.

I have written a concise set of autoresponders
designed to train new people, and they love it!
They’re a bit quirky, and fun, and they really are
getting the job done. My people are making money fast!

Step by step, I provide the insights gained through my
own blood, sweat, and tears. I tell recruits exactly
what works… and what doesn’t. This dramatically
reduces the learning curve for new people and puts
them into profit much more quickly.

By harnessing the power of autoresponders, I attained
director positions in 2 well respected network
marketing companies in a matter of months, so I can
vouch for the power of these “silent sales agents.”

I encourage you to “experience” the power of the
autoresponders that I use at one of my sites.

Simply fill out the request form, and the
autoresponder will tell you everything you need to
know about my business. And.. hopefully, it will get
your creative juices flowing and give you ideas for
turbo charging your business as well!

IS Permission Email Marketing In Trouble… And Is RSS The Answer?

by admin in email marketing tips

Comments Off Comments

Copyright 2005 The IWE, LLC. All Rights Reserved.

“Permission Email Marketing”, the only way to market your business via Email without getting yourself into trouble and giving you the ability to stay in touch and build a ongoing relationship with your customers and/or subscribers.

The only question is… is email still a reliable vehicle to deliver your marketing messages to your potential customers and/or subscribers?

With the rising concerns of SPAM, Blacklisting, Email Filters, and CAN-SPAM laws, it’s getting Harder and Harder for legitimate “Permission Email Marketers” to reach there Target audiences with there Product or Service offers.

The end result is… “Time Wasted” and “Loss of Profits”.

Is your online business suffering from this?

Only you can answer that.

Email used to be the MOST effective form of direct marketing online at one time before everybody started abusing it and there guidelines.

Don’t get me wrong, email still is effective, the question is… how effective?

The benefit to marketing with email was that you were able to get your marketing message infront of your Target audiences within a matter of minutes with a single click of your mouse, which at one time made MANY marketers “Buckets-Of-Money” literally over night.

Email WAS the answer at that time, but, what’s the solution for the future of “Permission Email Marketing”?

Is there an answer to this rising problem with Email?

I’ll give you three letters… RSS!

Yes, there is a solution for “Permission Email Marketers” and/or for any online business owner who uses email to stay in touch with there customers and/or subscribers and that is RSS(Rich Site Summary or Real Simple Syndication).

RSS is the NEW technology on the block(though its been around for quite some time) and is transforming the Internet and how businesses communicate with there customers and/or subscribers as we speak.

The BIGGEST benefit you’ll receive by incorporating RSS into your online business is… your customers and/or subscribers will receive 100% of your Product and/or Service offers.

I’m going to say that again, “your customers and/or subscribers will receive 100% of your Product and/or Service offers”.

No other online technology offers this benefit.

Just imagine the increased response to your offers, which in turn will convert into more Sales and Profits for you and your online business.

Rest assured, you could sleep at night knowing that your messages are reaching 100% of your Target audience without the worry of SPAM filters mistakenly marking your email as “SPAM” and that all that time you spent putting your offer together didn’t go to waste.

Would you then consider RSS?

I think you would. But, that is just my opinion.

There are many others benefits to using RSS which you can read about in a earlier article I wrote by clicking on this link — http://www.internetwondersezine.com/article_15.html — since there are too many to list within this article.

Things are changing online, so we must change with it and adapt any new technologies we can in order to get the most out of our time and online businesses.

So, with that said, if your a “Permission Email Marketer” and your not happy with the results your currently getting from using “Email”, then you might want to consider switching to “RSS”.

100% delivery rate is unheard of with Email, but, is GUARANTEED with RSS(Rich Site Summary or Real Simple Syndication).

How to Prevent Virus thro’ Email

by admin in email marketing tips

Comments Off Comments

Recently my Norton Anti-Virus (NAV) detected a virus coming through
email. This happened as my preview pane was open in the Inbox and it
opened the virus email automatically as soon as it was downloaded.
The NAV could not repair the file so I had to delete the infected
file. I found to my utter horror that deleting the file disabled my
browser. It also disabled my CD writer. I had to save my data using
Iomega 250MB zip drive which fortunately worked but only in the slow
SAFE mode of Windows! Ultimately I had to Quick Restore my Compaq
computer. It took me 2 days to reload various programs and data! This
could have been avoided if I had taken a few simple precautions. I
have written out these precautions as tips on how to configure the
email program so that you can prevent a disaster like mine.

Tips for configuring both Outlook Express (OE) and Microsoft Outlook
(MSO) particularly to block viruses hitting your computer
automatically. These precautions will save you a lot of trouble.

1.Switch off the preview panel in the INBOX. This prevents any virus
getting into your system by automatic opening in the preview pane.
2.Switch off the “include this account when receiving mail or
synchronizing” for every account you have. You can do this by
disabling (no tick mark) on this feature, which you will find by menu
chain: Tools, Accounts, account-name, properties, General. This will
ensure that the mail is not flowing-in automatically.
3.Before downloading mail, access the mail on the net. Most of these
webmail sites show the size of the files, which unfortunately is not
a feature with either OE or MSO. Any mail over 100KB is suspect
should be deleted. Also delete any junk mail. Only download and
receive mail that you want to save on your computer.
4.To download and receive mail, don’t click on Send/Receive on the
mail Tool Bar, but go into Tools, and move the curser on
“Send/Receive” and move right to get a sub-menu where you select the
precise account, with which you want to send or receive.
5.Send by clicking on the small arrow next to “Send”, and selecting
the precise account by which to send. The mail will wait in the
Outbox till you send through the Tools, Send/Receive menu as given in
3 above.

Making your company more eco-friendly

by admin in email marketing tips

Comments Off Comments

Many companies are striving to become more eco-friendly, hoping that by taking a more ‘green’ approach, they can reduce the impact their business has on the environment.

One way businesses can ‘go green’ is to invest in email marketing services to both advertise their business and keep in touch with their customer base. According to one eco-expert, Randall Davidson, this can be a great kick-start to making a company more environmentally-friendly.

“Not only will you save money by switching to an email marketing service, but you’ll also do far less damage to the environment,” Davidson told GreenBiz.com. “Even better from a business standpoint is that email marketing provides huge insights into how your marketing efforts are being received that printed flyers cannot. For instance, email marketing services can generally tell you what percentage of your emails were opened, how long they were open and which links were clicked.”

There are also a range of other ways in which companies can reduce their carbon footprint, such as replacing face-to-face meetings (or as many as is feasible) with remote meetings facilitated by video conferencing services. These reduce emissions (as people are not forced to travel, either by car, rail or air) and can vastly reduce paper consumption – as you will not have to use reams and reams of paper by preparing presentation packs or comprehensive agendas.

Additionally, it may be an idea to invest in promotional products that encourage recipients to be more green in their overall approach to life – for example, buying branded reusable coffee mugs or water bottles. This is a great way to both promote your business, and promote your eco-friendly message.

Lastly, why not consider having a boycott on all traditional mail, and instead insist on sending/receiving all communication, invoices, letters of inquiry etc. via email – thus helping saving a few trees, money on postage, and make things more efficient around the office.

Email MARKETING: 5 Steps to Success in Email Marketing

by admin in email marketing tips

Comments Off Comments

I bet you’ll be shocked to find out there are 5 key steps to success in email marketing? Have you been desperately searching for your way in to email marketing? Are you tired of hearing all these success stories? Well that was the way it was for me before I really got going and making money at email marketing. Let’s face it, when you start out at anything new and you’re not sure if you have the right solution or if you’re being scammed or if you’re not sure you have what it takes, its really hard to make any progress at all. This is an all or nothing game – you get zero back for being say 95% through the process. Its only when you are 100% through that you can collect.

If you’re already feeling frustrated – the bad news is…. that will continue unless you follow these 5 steps to success!

Step 1: Finish 1 cycle of the process without changing direction

What do I mean by that? Well I can recall so many times where I would start down a particular road and would hit the “hyper space” button – I would lose faith in what I was doing or would get stuck and would (unknowingly) jump on to something else. That meant that I was starting projects but was not seeing any through and in this game of email marketing, you don’t collect the $$$ for anything less than 100% completion. When you complete a whole cycle of the process you can learn loads – if you stop short what do you learn? That’s right, you learn to quit.

Step 2: Produce a road Map for your self

When you complete a whole cycle, you can then write out the sequence or map you plan to take for the next project (journey). Now you have a reference map (or plan or schedule – what ever you want to call it) and one that means that at any point in time you can zoom out and see where you are at. First time through the process is scary because you don’t really have a road map – at least not one you are familiar enough with.

Step 3: Get familiar with the key tools

Any email marketing project will involve some basic knowledge of software/concepts/ tools such as autoresponders, squeeze pages, landing pages, blogs etc. It is great if you can have the patience to take these 1 at a time and spend a few hours really getting to understand what they are about. When you are simply following explicit instructions line by line, you can be very uneasy when you don’t really understand why you are doing it. You probably also have an uneasiness there too because deep down you know that it will be hard to replicate the process. When you are going through the gears you will greatly appreciate the relief you’ll feel if you have a reasonable knowledge.

Step 4: Set tasks and times

Once you have a road map (which will change) its great to spend some time to break down the whole process into stages, tasks and times (task duration). You should keep it very simple and easy to use – you could just write a list of tasks in 1 column, add the target times in the 2nd column and have a 3rd column for recording actual times for each task. The feeling of control you will have will be enormous and you will become really focused in the process. Try to set yourself up for success by allowing fair to generous times for the first few cycles and you can always push the pace once you are making progress and feeling good about your self.

Step 5: Stick with the road ahead In a word this is about persistence.

Sometimes to others it may appear that you are going backwards but if you are “facing north” at all times you will feel confident and will not be deterred from your goal. This is where the road map will keep you going – you will only have to figure your way back to the known road to get going again. Otherwise you’re just pulling over to the side of the road and giving up. If you follow these steps you are on the surest road to making money from email marketing. If you follow these steps you will have success and you feel enormous satisfaction. When you follow these steps you will have your success, you will feel enormous satisfaction and you will be even more energized for more success – and success breeds success! These steps will guide you and will make sure you succeed in making money from email marketing. Although the experience is never quite the same for any 2 people along the same path, If you resolve to sticking with these steps you will get to your destination.

You can do it – is there anything here that you cannot handle? If there is, focus on that and be clear about it before even starting the journey. If you can handle these steps can you see a successful outcome for yourself?

No website?, No List?, No Product? With this 10 step program that’s No Problem!

Tips on Building Your Own Mailing List

by admin in email marketing tips

Comments Off Comments

If you are looking for tips and helpful suggestions that you can use so that you can build an effective mailing list for your advertising business/internet marketing initiative, then you have found an excellent article. In the succeeding paragraphs of this short yet very informative article, we have listed down and tackled three tips and pointers which can help you establish a credible in-house contact list that can in turn guarantee the success of your direct marketing and advertising campaign.

Three Tips on How to Build Your Own Mailing List

1. Seek professional help. If you do not have any experience in handling advertising business/internet marketing programs, then you should seriously consider employing the services of professional advertisers and online marketers. But where can you find such professionals?

To find legitimate direct marketing and advertising service providers, you can visit the local office of the Small Business Development Center, also known as the SBDC. This government-sponsored agency provides expert advice on a variety of small business issues, especially in relation to promotional and marketing activities. The SBDC can also offer assistance on how business owners, like you, can come up with credible mailing lists that they can use so that they can effectively advertise the products and services they sell out.

Business owners and entrepreneurs can also hire freelance internet advertising experts. By setting up an appointment with one of these professionals, you can surely receive practical advice on how you can establish an in-house contact list of your prospective customers.

2. Expand your social network. To build a credible mailing list, you also need to expand your social network. This involves listing down the contact information of the individuals you meet either personally or through popular social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and other related websites. As you keep in touch with your friends and acquaintances, you can easily evaluate whether or not they fit the profile of your target market. And with the use of their contact details, you can successfully build an extensive database that you can use to support the direct marketing and advertising programs of your business. And that’s not all. You can even allow other companies and firms to rent the in-house contact list that you have built on your own.

3. Use free online directories. You can also use the information and directories available in the domain of the World Wide Web. You can use the features and functionalities offered in different websites to gain access to reliable and at times free information.

But, a gentle reminder: You have to check the credibility of the online directories you intend to use. After all, the information that you can access through the internet is prone to obsolescence. Thus, you need to make sure that the details that you get from an online source or directory is reliable. Examine when the information on a particular web page or site has been updated. This way, the effort, time and finances that you will invest in building your own business mailing list will not go to waste.

Tips on How to Comment on Blogs

by admin in email marketing tips

Comments Off Comments

Blog Commenting.
It takes time for people to find out about your blog and then get in to the habit of visiting it more often. Initially when your first start blogging and don’t have that many subscribers, comments make your blog look more appealing. Initially you may learn that users may not post comments to your blog, it is totally up to you to get things going.

Blog Tip No. 1 – Add comments.

If you learn that your readers are not still comfortable with leaving comments on your blog, then have your family or friends to leave comments on your blog as it can make it seem more active.
People like to see activity. If your blog seems passive, you are likely to get no responses. If you would rather not have your family even know about your blog, then you can post comments yourself but as a “Guest” or as registered user instead of admin. Give responses to your own posts initially to create activity, then you will start to see other real users placing comments as well.

Blog Top No. 2 – Controversial Comments

Leaving a controversial comment usually works best to stimulate some activity from the visitors to your blog. Start making comments that are guaranteed to spark a response. You can even create “characters” that post controversial statements on your blog to really get user interest going. This character may disagree with a blog posting you make, creating a sequence of posts that increase the activity comments of my post. Once you find that the blog readers have taken a keen interest in your blog, you can then rely on their posts rather than creating fake ones of your own.

Always remember, if you are going to post fake comments, space the timing between posts. For instance, never post two minutes after you’ve posted as admin, as it’s too obvious that you’re the same person. Allow some time to pass by before making your “fake user comments post”.

Blog Tip No. 3 – Pay per Comment

If you do not want to do the “fake posts” yourself, some blogger`s have actually paid users to reply to posts on their blog. If you visit popular webmaster forums, you will learn that users get paid for making posts on forums. The going rate is about 10 cents per post or something within that range. The same theory is applicable for blog commenting. You can hire a group of ten to twenty people to comment on your posts and pay them a small fee.

This way you generate some interest in your blog.
There are websites available to post a project on for “blog posters” such as Scriptlance.com or Getafreelancer.com. On such websites like these, you can get users posting on your site in reply to the posters that you have paid. Within a few weeks your blog should be very active. This benefits you in the long run as the search engines will be visiting your site often due to the constant updates.

The trick viral

by admin in email marketing tips

Comments Off Comments

The viral seems an oddball device to use with bulk email marketing when the general rule is that they are unpredictable. The good news is that if it fails to ignite the band widths of ISPs you can always modify it and try again.

The purpose of a viral is for it to get passed on from person to person. It doesn’t take a lot of working out to realise that if each recipient only passes it on to two others, the growth is exponential. This is its most exciting aspect and also one that needs to be considered at the initial stages.

Whatever type of viral you go for there are some aspects which will be common. The main ones are:

* it will be free,

* it will be of value to the receiver,

* it will make the person sending it on look good,

* it will be of value to you.

Free is a word that makes many companies wary. Isn’t profit your main motivator. But you are looking at it from the wrong direction. The viral is an advertisement. How many of those do you charge people to look at?

Giving suggests that the viral should contain something of value. This could be merely entertainment, such as a funny video or a remarkable picture, or it could be information that will be of value to them.

As you want receivers to pass the viral on to others, try allowing the sender some credit. If it is cool then they will look cool. The same goes for sophisticated and informed. And that most valuable of qualities, generous.

There must be a return on the viral. It is no good being the author of something that took the world by storm if your company doesn’t get any benefit from it.

The trick is, of course, in creating the viral. Once you have cracked that you are away.

Much will depend on whom you are aiming it at. Your email marketing software will be vital here in defining your target audience. Consider their needs, their positions and what make their life easier.

As an example let us take B2B in a business that is worldwide. Your targets might be contacting people around the world at all through the day and night. They will need to know what time it is in the recipient’s location. Or, if they send an email, when they can expect a reply.

How about a bit of software they can download onto their desk top, laptop or mobile phone which, at the click of a button, displays the time in any country or city. And underneath is your logo.

All the criteria are satisfied, even the essential final one. Every time they want to know the time in some other part of the world your logo will flash up on whatever device they are in front of.

The essence of the viral is that it is of value. It must be worth something to them, to the recipient and most of all to you.
