You finally realise that you need a good opt-in list.
After reading countless articles and seeking expert advice and reading countless success stories of people creating a small fortune with opt-in lists you finally decide to have one of your own. Then it happens, you think you know everything there is to know about opt-in lists, have followed their advice and you still can't make a profit.
In fact, you may be losing money. You may be hiring writers to help you out. You may have some expenses, even if you have a big list, but only a very small percentage actually buying from you, and you're still making no profit.
After some months, you look up and finally, you see your statistics and sales figures.
So what could have gone wrong? Why have others succeeded where you have failed? The most common mistake is that you dived straight right in. You chose a topic you thought would be quite popular and the money would just flow. This is just not the case. Just because you mailed out to people to your list, on a regular basis doesn’t mean they are going to buy.
Don't be dishearterned, and take my advice. For those of you who have started an opt-in list and think you have failed, you can rejuvenate your failed venture. You just found a few more ways that it doesn't work. You can get back on the "straight and narrow". It's just a bit of work, after all.
For those who are starting, here are some quick and easy ways to build a profitable opt-in list.
Get Your Customers to Trust You and Your Products First
* Just launching your opt-in list will not make you an expert and a believable seller.
* Post a lot of articles first before you start an opt-in list.
* Write about topics that you know about and have started and used for your site.
* Use forums to gain knowledge about your customers, about their wants and needs and target those wants and needs.
* Join forums from other sites as well.
* Provide expert advice and recommendations. When you finally feel that people trust you, you will be able to start your own opt-in list. You can build a base as well with other forum users. You can ask them to join your list. Friends are always good customers. Put up a link to your site so that they can see what your business is all about.
Use Social Media extensively to reach your friends and relatives. Don't be put off by that, as they will usually respond in a positive way.
The truth is, the money will only come when the consumers and subscribers believe and trust in you. They want a product or service that represents great value for their money. People are not going to buy something just because of your recommendation if they don’t know you.
Find a Product or Service That People Want and Need.
If you truly research and learn about your product or service, you will be convincing. It is said that an expert is someone who knows a bit more than the person he is teaching. Become an expert, but know a lot more.
Don't try to sell products that the majority are not interested in. Research the best selling niches. It is no good selling "blue widgets" if there is nobody out there searching for "blue widgets". Learn what people are searching for. Do your keyword analysis, find the right niches and go after them.
Make Friends with Other Opt-in List Users
In other words, follow success. These are people that have the experience in their niche and experience is still the best teacher. While there are many articles available for you on the internet to use, there is nothing like getting a first hand account from someone you trust.
Experienced opt-in list users will be able to tell you what to do and what not to do because they have done it. There are many pitfalls to avoid and these people will be able to tell you which ones.
Building a profitable opt-in list won’t just happen overnight. Opt-in lists are built from scratch and, as your list grows, you must maintain the quality of your list. Keep it organized and manageable. Get or hire help if need be, just make sure that your subscribers are happy and satisfied and they will be willing to buy from you.
