It all starts with love at first sight, wine and dine, and then you get married, or divorced, it’s all in your hands.   What I mean, is that you need to build some sort of trust between you and your readers. You need to treat them “good” , in order for them to accept whatever it is you are sharing with them. Don’t go straight for the “one night stand”.   I’m talking sex talk, so I can keep you captivated here.  So what I’m saying is….


You’ve come to my blog here, because you either liked the topic, category, or blog post and decided to pop in and check out what I have to say. I probably relate to you and the choices you are making right now, and that’s why you are here.


You need some help or you are here to gain some extra knowledge from another perspective?


Whatever your pleasure … the fact is, You are here, reading this, and I’m good with that. So for the sake of this article I’m going to guess that you need some kind of help and the information I’m sharing with you is probably some valuable information you had no idea before.   I really don’t know who you are, but I know this, you signing up to my list is my own success in my own business.Who are you This means I’m doing something right. I’m providing my subscribers with valuable information that they can use in their daily lives, business, or just state of mind.



So for example, my website is basically covering; Life, Entrepreneurship, Online Marketing , and Blogging Strategies. Who ever visits my website, they are surrounded by opt–in forms everywhere. These are opt-in forms leading to my «list». Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 3.19.52 PMThe reason I’m doing this, is to be able to get closer to my readers, if needed, in order to HELP them in whatever issue they might be having in the categories I’m covering here in my website.   So during my time in blogging, and through my experience of learning from my mentor  through the network I’m currently in.



I’ve learned that this has helped me tremendously in my own business. I have a list of subscribers that have signed up to me so they hear what I have to say.  During this time, I’m able to provide them with info ASAP into their personal email inbox’s, so they can take action.   And this is why building a list is important in the online marketing world, blogging world, or any online business.



I mean you are blogging about something. So you have your Niche group look for you since what you are writing relates to them, and so forth.


The rules to the game

There are a few rules to the game you need to abide to, if you want to be a successful in capturing leads and «keeping» your lists alive. Screen Shot 2014-09-30 at 3.25.30 PM What I mean is that, you need to realize that when for example if 100 subscribe to your website or blog, only 1% usually will stick around and if you are offering something for your subscriber to buy, they will buy. But only 1%… The rest just take off and never come back.



See I had that same problem when I first started. Didn’t know what I was doing, and wasn’t helping people understand that I wanted them to sign up to my blog.



You have to «remind» people to «take action» to everything basically.Even asking someone to «Comment» is a good reminder.   So you need to do something about that 99 leaving without coming back.


The power of the Landing page

Creating a landing page, telling your readers before leaving what they would gain from subscribing is huge! It’s like a small introduction to who you are, what you have to offer, and what they would gain from it.

You basically give them permission for you to provide them with the information you promised to share with them. So now the chances of keeping the 99 people who were going to leave are higher with a landing page, instead of not giving them that *option «reminder» .   Building relationships is huge in this business.



This is the internet after all. You don’t know who is behind each monitor.  You can’t imagine how much difference this makes. Making this small change in my style, helped me create my list today.   Never Spam your subscribers.  When I mean by spamming. Don’t give them what you didn’t promise them.



They made a deal with you, you told them why they signed up, you try to abide that rule, or you’ll lose them faster than you can blink.  And when that happens, then you’ll need to rethink your strategy on how you build relationships with your readers.   Automated Email Responder So now you created your list .


What do you do next? email-comic

You start sending each contact an email, one by one, and make sure you are referring to them by their first name! …. HA ha ha…. just pulling your leg. I do have humor you know 😉



You go out and get yourself an email responder. Simple as that.  You really need an automated email responder because that’s your Business «secretary» or so to speak.   I’m not going to advertise it any more, just enough to let you understand that with this you will be able to create your opt – in capture pages, your subscribe boxes and to create «automated» emails sending your subscribers your valuable information, with scheduling options and other many options galore.



Trust me when you have over 10.000 as list subscribers you’ll need somewhere to store these contacts. That’s why you pay subscription for a certain no.  So go ahead and choose Aweber.   I’m currently with Aweber and I would suggest it to anyone wanting to grow their email list.



I hope this article has helped you realize the importance of Lead Capturing and you can now see how important email lists are for your business.   Without a doubt, your conversions will rapidly change when you have a list.



They subscribed for a reason, remember to give your followers exactly what they need.



If you need any help setting up your Aweber account or how to create opt-in forms please contact me and I’ll help you out.


About my list

Don’t worry…I “personally” reach out only to my readers who are asking for help in the online marketing world, or how they can start making money online using their website or blog, and  taking actions. No-Spam For example, if you sign up to my website, or blog,  you get to go through a couple of steps, so I can make sure that you are looking for help.   Once you fill in my “personal survey“, then that means you want to reach out to me for help.  That’s how I then contact my list.  The rest (the “99” ) are being reminded of what I’m showing, or I’m sharing my “blog” posts, that they might find interesting.



Not spamming anyone.   Look, not all information is for everyone.  So don’t get the idea I’m just promoting things here.


I’m also giving some valuable information on online marketing, entrepreneurial adventures. life experiences, and a little bit of spirituality if you like.



So hope to see you soon, don’t forget to sign up 😉

Tips on how to Choose your Affiliate Marketing Niche

If you are a website owner, product distributor, or blogger, chances are you have heard about  affiliate marketing.


You are an affiliate marketer when you promote another business, site, or product on your site. When you have a new visitor  that clicks on a link you’ve shared with them, and they take action or purchase something, then you will earn money in the form of a commission by that affiliate company that you signed up for.


Before you begin pondering the ins and outs of affiliate marketing, however, it is necessary to choose a niche. While choosing a niche may seem simple enough, here are my tips on how to choose your affiliate marketing niche and start making money online today.


Choose your Passion niche


The primary step in creating a website, product, or business must be something for which you feel a great deal of passion. If you have a product, you need to believe in that product and should fulfill your needs.


If you create a blog or business, you want to have an initial passion for what you are doing, you’ll sound like you know what your talking about, rather than trying to learn what the product is with the hope of making a quick buck.


People are smart, and they will only buy if they trust you.  You need to be trusted.  Show them yourself working on these products, so they can get a clear view  of what  you have experienced with the product yourself.


If not, no matter what you do or how you advertise, your inauthentic vibes will shine right through.

Do Your Research

This is one of the most important steps. Once you have honed in on something that is near and dear to your heart, it is essential to do your research. Find out if there is a market for this product or service. If there is a hungry market, that is half the battle – the other half is finding out how much competition there is out there for this particular market.

Study the competition.   What will make your website or product stand out far and above the other competitors? What is your unique selling proposition? What will make customers flock to your site as compared to any other?


Choose a Sub-Niche 

While it is vital to choose a niche in which you are passionate, it is also important to choose a sub-niche and possibly even a sub-sub-niche. For example, you may be passionate about making money online blogging , Well, so are millions of other bloggers that are interested in that category as well.


How do you break away from that group?  Create a sub niche through that.  For example, I’m creating sub niches in my affiliate marketing category.  This technique is often used by affiliate marketers.   The sub-niche is a more profitable group based in the internet market as opposed to a tangible marketplace because of the specificity required in targeting such a market.


An Online business has little start up cost and can afford and even target multiple sub-niche markets to create a steady form of revenue. The technique of sub-niche marketing is duplicated in multiple markets to achieve the desired amount of income.  I’m promoting different ideas in the same category.


Now you will stand out above the crowd.


Once you have chosen your passion project, done your research, and chosen a niche and sub-niche, you can start to think about the subject of affiliate marketing.


Tying into your niche and sub-niche will give you a clear picture of how to connect and market with other businesses, websites, and bloggers.  A quick way is to get together with a mentor (me)  or  join an affiliate program that I’m part of.  If you want more information on it, just Subscribe below.
