Newsletter List Building: Learn One Of The Easiest Ways To Build An Opt-in Subscriber List And Earn Affiliate Commissions.

Nov 15, 2007
Would you like to learn one of the easiest ways to make money online without spending a fortune? The following system doesn't require the need to hire a Webmaster or an Internet marketing guru to put it together. You can do it yourself. I'll tell you how. First, let's start at the beginning.

Why do you need your own opt-in list? Having your own opt-in list means you have your own targeted audience to communicate with long after they have left your website.

On average most website visitors will take just three seconds to decide if your site has what they're searching for, so it's important to make a powerful offer to each visitor the very first moment they arrive.

This site - AssociatePrograms.com - has a terrific example of a home page that immediately tells you to take action and sign up for a valuable ebook.

Did you notice the stop sign right away? Did you sign up to get that ebook?! Eventually you will. When you do sign up, notice what web page you are directed to: an affiliate product sales page.

Using the squeeze page method you can send a subscriber to your affiliate product sales page - and then send a five-part report by email to promote the affiliate product, just in case your subscriber doesn't purchase right away. Your affiliate commissions will increase dramatically.

Your squeeze page offer should include a free ebook, or free software, in addition to an ezine or report with well-written content that discusses the value of the affiliate product you are promoting. When someone requests to receive information from you by email they are "opting in."

Affiliate marketers need a way to capture opt-in ezine subscribers AND promote an affiliate product. Since affiliate marketers don't have a product of their own to promote, they have come up with a clever way to sell other people's ebooks and software by giving away valuable free information to build an opt-in list of ezine subscribers. And so the Name Squeeze page was born.

The inventor of the Name Squeeze page is Internet marketer, Jonathan Mizel. The squeeze page is simply a one page website with sales copy and an opt-in form. A squeeze page is also called a Landing Page, a Lead Capture Page, a Lead Generation Page, and a Splash Page.

I highly recommend promoting your squeeze page offer by publishing informative articles instead of using expensive Google AdWords pay-per-click advertising.

The basic function of a squeeze page is to offer each visitor valuable "free" information that they receive from you via email. This method will rapidly build your opt-in list, and allow you to talk about your affiliate product offer by email to potential customers at a much less hectic pace.

Plus, in your ezine or report you can promote a variety of products and services that would be of "specific interest" to your targeted audience. This is why all the successful Internet marketing gurus say, "The money is in the list."

The squeeze page marketing system works like this:

* Drive traffic to your lead capture (squeeze) page by publishing articles. (iSnare.com, SubmitYourArticle.com, ArticleMarketer.com).

* Your leads opt-in to receive your 5-part report and free information.

* Your leads are DIRECTED to the sales page of your affiliate product.

* Your leads receive and read your report.

* You build your list while making affiliate sales.

That's it! That's the squeeze page marketing system. It's easy to put together, it's inexpensive, and it's profitable.

There are seven affiliate marketing components every e-business owner should own. You may have all of these online business tools already. In case you don't have them, here is what you need:

Component 1: A direct response lead generation (squeeze) page.
