How to Start A Profitable Affiliate Home Business
by Kevin Purfield
If you’re looking to build a successful home business online
you need to know what the top marketers are doing and you need
to do the same things.
The top marketers who earn six and seven figure incomes each year
understand the importance of developing and maintaining a list
of customers. The challenge then would be, how do you develop a list?
Where do you get the names and email addresses from?
One great method is to find a website with high traffic
and place an opt in form on the site. Your form would state
some basic information about your offer and it would request
the visitors name and email address.
You would also want to be certain to have your system
designed so that you captured the time and IP address
of the person requesting the information. This will
save you from allot of potential SPAM complaints.
Another list building method is to purchase leads from the
various lead vendors. The problem with purchasing leads is that
you then need to import them into an autoresponder for follow up.
An autoresponder is a computer that sends email.
Many auto responder companies require you to send a confirmation
email to the leads you import into their system. This reduces
the number of SPAM complaints the responder companies receive.
The additional steps of importing and confirmation can reduce
the number of respondents to your messages. Join with a reputable
lead vendor and obtain visitor contact information with
a website opt-in forms.
Writing ezine articles is an excellent way to advertise your
business and build a list of customers for free. Simply write
an article and distribute it to the thousands of available ezines
Since the big ezine publishers will receive tons of articles
you are competing with many other writers. You can offer
incentives to the publishers or gifts specific to the readers
of a particular ezine.
At the end of your article include a resource box with your
website link or an email address for the reader.
You can let the publisher place their affiliate link
in your resource box so they can earn credit from your
article. This works if the publisher is your affiliate
selling your products.
Remember to have a lead capture form available on your website
both in static and a pop-up form. You may also want to add
a pop under form as well. Pop-ups and pop-unders are small or
sometimes large windows that appear on screen with promotions.
The great part about building your list of subscibers and customers
from your ezine article is that you develop credibility with the reader
before they request additional information at your website or
emailing your autoresponder.
Customers rarely purchase on the initial contact.It is important
for you to have an automated follow up system that can keep your
potential customers informed about your offers until they are ready
to purchase from you.
There are many more ways to drive traffic to your business
and develop a list of customers, these are just a few.
Try using one or two of these tips today and soon you will
be a top internet marketer.
