How To Make Money Online With A Newsletter
Many online internet marketers tell us "its all in the list" and many people lap up stories of guru's emailing thousands in their online list and making a huge profit in the process. Actually you too can start your own email list and make money from it as well. This article will highlight six tips on how you can make more money from your own email list.
1.Have a paragraph to disclose something personal so as to create trust between yourself and your newsletter reader
Most people fail to realize that the reader of a newsletter is very much a person like you and me and they have emotions and feelings and are not reading your newsletter purely for the topic at hand but they need to trust you before they can purchase stuff you recommend. A good way to create trust in your newsletters is to add a personal touch to your emails with some personal revelation that can connect you with your readers. The greater your readers trust you, the more likely they will purchase the stuff that you recommend thus earning you a commission in the process.
2.Spend time keeping up with your area of interest To be able to capture and keep your newsletter audience, it is important that you remain on top of your area of interest. Spending some time daily keeping up to date with your area of interest by reading online news websites and online magazines is a good way to keep up to date. When your tips are current and effective, your readers will thank you and this increases the chances of them telling their friends about your newsletter.
You might want to write some good articles on trends and developments in your area as well and publish them in article directories and then refer to your own articles in your newsletter so as to establish your credibility and authority in your area of interest. The greater influence that you hold over your newsletter readers would mean greater profits for you when you should choose to email them a special offer.
3.Answer your newsletter subscribers Many newsletter publishers are very happy when their newsletter subscribers actually take the time to email them and ask them questions. This helps create trust and you can always grab a free testimonial for your newsletter after you have successfully helped your newsletter reader.
On the other hand, ignoring your subscribers questions is detrimental as you could see and increase in newsletter subscription opt out. So the simple solution is to take the time replying to emails and questions posed to you.
4.Ensure your email newsletter gets delivered
Today with the proliferation of spam filters there are many emails that are not getting through to their intended readers. There are a couple of solutions to this problem:
One of them involves putting your newsletter on your website and emailing your readers with just your link to your website to reduce your chances of your email getting caught by the span filters.
Another method involves ditching the whole idea of email and using direct to desktop readers. Your subscriber downloads a desktop reader and when your newsletter is ready for collection, your desktop readers will then inform you.
With a greater delivery rate, you can see your profits increase exponentially.
5.Use attention grabbing headers
The really advanced affiliate marketers test everything and one of the things they do involves testing their headlines. The use of attention emotion stirring words tend to increase the chances of your newsletter reader opening your email. An example would be in order here. "Secrets of wealth generation revealed in this issue of your Widget newsletter".
Your header therefore should invoke curiosity in the reader so that they open up your newsletter email and click to view it. Obviously the more eyeballs you have reading your email the higher your profits are going to be.
6.Choose applicable affiliate programs
One simple way to make money from your email list is to recommend affiliate products that fit in with the theme of your list. So if your list deals with children education for instance, you could recommend children education toys to your list as a possible choice for a Christmas present. Always choose products that you have personally seen and consider good. Treat your email list like gold and your readers will be very loyal and thank you for the recommendation.
In conclusion, making money with an email list is not that difficult but it takes effort and each step you take today will pay off richly in the future. By treating your newsletter readers as your friends, they will be able to trust you and your recommendations and help you earn commissions when they do purchase what you tell them. The world of online internet marketing is ever expanding and you can make some money with your email list today if you make the effort to try.
