That statement got me distracted for 2 solid hours.
Shiny object alert!
This afternoon, I received an email from Stuart Walker that enticed me into reading and digesting this information.
Here are my notes and thoughts…
- One traffic source better than Google, Facebook and Paid Ads.
- Why Better? You are in control. The rest can shut you down anytime.
- So I downloaded the 5-step system by Anik Singal. A free report.
- Also better than other business models like Adsense, blogging, eCommerce, amazon and digital publishing.
- Here’s the flow in a nutshell…
- 1. Traffic: free, paid, invested.
- 2. 1-page website: headline, bullet points, an image of a free giveaway, box to collect email.
- 3. Database: Collected email leads
- 4. Thank You Page: Don’t just say thank you, include a link to an affiliate offer.
- 5. Email: Connect with subscribers, autoresponder, broadcasts.
- The 5 steps
- Step 1: Build a 1-page website – the opt-in page
- Step 2: Create a great free gift
- Step 3: Choose a winning affiliate offer
- Step 4: Write your emails
- Step 5: Driving Traffic
- Anik is the third expert this month advising me not to use autoresponders, but to send out broadcasts instead.
- That may mean I can give up my $200+/year Aweber and go for the free WordPress Jetpack Subscription. Just a thought. Prove me wrong.
- Ohh… with WordPress, I cannot offer a free giveaway.
- The best type of email to send is the Hybrid email, a mix of content and promotional message through storytelling. Also the same advice as others.
- The best traffic is investment traffic? I see… invest in Anik’s email media network.
- Ok, I have been fooled. So email marketing isn’t the best source of traffic, as what got me started reading. You still need traffic from other sources to begin with. Sigh! :(
- I am not saying it will not work. Just that we are still not in control… Anik is… as long as you “INVEST”, you are ok. Just guessing.
- In this free report, Anik is selling me his “done for you” email marketing system LaunchPad.
- I already have my own setup, but what’s missing is…
- Affiliate link in Thank you pages
- Sending out hybrid email broadcasts (like this post | I learn | I apply | I document)
- More traffic to the opt-in page – means more blogging, social media and Youtubing.
You know what? Suddenly I realised I read this report before. Thanks, Stuart Walker.
