When you start out in Internet Marketing if you plan to build a serious enduring business,you must put your roots down,and you'll build from the bottom up.
Probably the best form of online advertising is email advertising.
This form of advertising has been the primary form of advertising since the web became such an important marketplace.
Email marketing is a form of Direct Response Marketing.
Direct response marketing is a form of advertising which allows businesses and nonprofit organizations to communicate straight to a targeted customer.
There are many forms of direct response marketing but email marketing is the most important piece used in internet marketing.
Email marketing is all about collecting email addresses so that you acquire a customer and build a list.
The issue with many affiliate marketers is that they take a one-time-shot approach,and send a product owner a customer.
The affiliate may get a commission on the vendor's product,but the email address and customer now belongs to the vendor whose product the affiliate had been promoting.
The actual value of the abiding customer is much more valuable,than the front end sale and accompanying commission.
Recall,front end products are lower priced products at the front end of a sales funnel.
If you,as an affiliate,are not "cookied" at the front end sale, the subsequent sales go to the product vendor.
Some of the better license rights companies will keep your affiliate id associated with your referred customer for as long as the enquirer or buyer remains a customer of the license rights company.
This is an important question to ask before you join and partner with an established affiliate company.
Once you refer a customer,they're associated with you for life if you are cookied correctly.
You'll be cookied correctly if your affiliate company is a trustworthy and fair online platform.
Some marketers will send enquirers to their own optin page,even before they send them on to the product creator's landing page.
Can you see the value in this?
You'll have the customer on your own list,and they'll remain your customer as well as your affiliate company's customer.
It is very important to capture an email address,if you're an affiliate,if you are a vendor and have your own products,or you are a license rights holder.
Each online business standard has its own particular way of making money online,but email marketing and building a list is fundamental to building a substantial and abiding online enterprise.
Be it affiliate,vendor, license rights owner,or any combination of the three.
As an IMer or new IMer or affiliate you're probably familiar with making optin pages,landing pages,and sales pages.
If you're not familar you need to get familiar,at least with the process, as this is an essential part of building for list.
I'll refer you to one of the top page makers in the Industry it's called Optimizepress, go here for special discount, click or copy and paste, http://wpdiscounts.com/coupons/optimizepress/.
Bear in mind that Optimizepress integrates with the following autoresponders:
iContact InfusionSoft 1ShoppingCart
Here's a free autoresponder that's very good,copy and paste, http://freefollowup.com/
You can build free landing pages at wix.com, but very professional landing pages are a must to capture leads.
Hence, you're better off partnering with an established platform.
If you're starting out however, it's always good to make landing pages,and get a feel for what goes into the process.
Optimizepress also works well with Google Analytics and Kissmetrics.
This recommendation is from solid online experience, and talking with and learning from the best online marketers,I'm not an affiliate of Optimizepress.
I want to be able to point you in the right direction, as I did not have the right people pointing me in the right direction at the start of my online marketing career.
There are so many paths to follow, it's obviously very important to get on the right one from the onset.
There are important platforms that've been online for over 20 years and they have landing page building totally automated and down to a fine art.
Keep in mind, you need a strong core business,and building your list with professional landing pages is the an absolute must.
If your determination is fixed, I do not counsel you to despair. Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance. Samuel Johnson.
