Email Marketing Resources

Email Marketing resources for the affiliate marketer.

Regardless of whether you are running a small business or as an affiliate marketer creating an affiliate business, email is still a very viable and needed method for marketing your products and services.

Unfortunately, email marketing is also complicated as you have to consider such things as

~ What is the right message you want to send

~ Does the subject line convey the right message that people will want to know more

~ How are you creating an imagery for your readers?Email marketing is not just about the words you use but the imagery you are conveying –

The issue of creating, maintaining and building your lists and lets not forget that you need to measure the outcome of any email you send!

Everything is important and needs to come together so that your customer or subscriber will receive the email at the proper time!

The subscriber will open the email!

The subscriber will receive a good call to action!

(with the “ultimate goal” of the customer buying from you and not the bloke down the street!)

To clarify the last point – while the ultimate goal is for the customer to buy from you, you should never confuse the email with a landing page and many people do just that.

To keep it simple or using the K.I.S.S principle, your email copy is about getting people to click on your o

Subject Line

Subject Line: Why’s He Got a Turnip in his Pipe?

By Dave Cottrell

Subject line – Why’s He Got a Turnip in his Pipe? Did that make you a bit curious? If you got that subject line in your email, would you open it? Could you resist opening it? Good!

Dr. Suess is very familiar to many of us. If you are under a hundred years old and you have children or grandchildren, you probably read books to them written by Dr. Suess. “The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, Go, Dog, Go,” are just a few of the familiar titles. How does Dr. Suess help you in getting people’s attention?

Copy writing is a skill that can make all the difference between making a sale or not, but unless you get people’s attention, first, the best copy in the world is just not going to get read.

Dr. Suess, used to do things like walking onto a bus “smoking” a pipe with a turnip in it. People would come up to him and ask him why he was smoking a pipe with a turnip in it! His answer was simple. “So that people will ask me why I have a turnip in my pipe!”

What a great way to start a conversation!!

This is what we’re all trying to do when we create a headline, an email subject line, a tweet or a share on FB and any other social media we use. 

eBay Seller tips

eBay seller tips that might be of use to you

When it comes to using Ebay for selling and buying, I can confess outright that I am less than a novice.
I did manage to get my courage up to buy a product a year ago and talk about being nervous- let me count the ways lol.
While that may sound very silly to people who buy and sell on eBay on  a frequent basis, it’s a very normal feeling for those who have never done it and have few concepts on what to expect.
Now I know there are a lot of people who are using eBay for selling and making a good income from it and I have to admit that selling on eBay  has been a topic of interest for me since I bought that product ( P.S it came within a couple of days in the original packing and has been working like a charm since I got it.)
Considering how many of these “same” products were on eBay, I had to question myself, what drew me to that particular listing of the “adobe PDF maker” where I felt that this was the best listing for me and where I said “yes” to buying this product.
I think there were a few factors to be honest, of course there was the price ( which was decent- but not the cheapest) to the title,the  description  and the images that were shown.
