The 'No Mailing List' Solution To Affiliate Profits by Shahnaz Rauf

There are lots of excellent affiliate programs
out there and even lots more affiliates. But the
average guy hardly holds more than 3 sales to
his name.
All those top ranking marketing courses and
ebooks advise you to have your own mailing list-
'hot leads' as they call them. But to be able
to develop one responsive list you need to be a
'mini guru' yourself. It takes lots of
dedication, time and 'appetite' to be able to
build such a list.
Frankly, the average Joe hopped on the internet
in the first place to be able to grab some of
the gold floating around cyberspace and earn
some extra 'grub' anonymously...
Yes using the anonymity of a faceless email and
without all the hassles of an ordinary business...
building a 'mailing list' is simply a
non-attainable goal.
Other Stumbling blocks are:
- Loss of affiliate revenue due to affiliate
link theft.
- Non acceptance of affiliate links by search
engines.
- Loss of advertising revenue - Even though the
program claims for eg. 'sales copy is so good
every 6th person is signing up or buying' - the
affiliate orders guaranteed hits using traffic
exchanges only to be disappointed or feel a
temporary elation with a few sales...
All that advertising simply helps to create a
'buzz' about the program with no positive
impact to the affiliate...
Rarely if ever does anyone buy on a first visit
to the site and by the time they have been
'buzzed into hypnotic action' to buy, it's
definitely not from the first, second or even
third sites they visited. Also they usually buy
from someone who has an 'up-sell' offer,
someone to whose mailing list they already
belong or someone they have come to trust.
All is not lost however, you can master the
affiliate game yet... Without a mailing list.
So lets get started:
1. Prepare an independent web page for each
affiliate program with
- A magnetically irresistible title;
- followed by a bulleted list of benefits using
'grab them by the gut' writing.
- A link to the programs testimonial page.
- Provide third party validation with a link to
any other website such as epinions.com or scam
reporter or BBB etc that has some positive
comments listed about the program.
- If the program has a Newsletter or forum to
discuss expansion plans etc provide a link to it.
- Write about your own success you have had with
this program and add a link to some form of
proof such as photos of payment checks received.
- State your own 'up-sell' offer clearly and
make it time sensitive... (if you order through
my link by midnight you also get the following
ebooks, advertising, software etc).
- Make an offer of 'guaranteed' assistance - one
on one interaction through email or phone.
- State your full contact information clearly.
2. Compile the above page in an ebook format. You
can use any number of low cost ebook compilers
available out there.
3. Create another web page with an irresistible
headline, a bulleted list of benefits and a free
download link to your ebook.
4. Advertise the web page created in step 3 on
all the free traffic exchanges. You may order
real cheap guaranteed visitors to this page
(Just confirm with your web-host that your
website can handle the deluge of guaranteed
visitors).
Also make sure to monitor the number of times
your ebook is downloaded and which traffic
service gives you the maximum downloads - you
may use any of the link tracking services out
there.
Does this technique work... believe me it does.
Just pay special attention to steps 3 and 4.
Your copy in step 3 should make the kill, and in
step 4 create the loudest 'buzz' you possibly
can... even the most die hard web surfers will
not be able to resist the temptation to download
your free ebook and find out what it is all
about - then the rest depends on your 'upsell'
offer and sales letter in step 1.
Can you do this... you don't need a mailing list!
Yeah just drop the right bait and create a
'feeding frenzy' among the information hungry
fishes on the internet.
