How to maximize profits from your mailing list

Everyone talks about how to get people on your mailing list – but what do you do with them once they are there?

Common practice is to get a big list going then break it down into smaller pieces.

  1. Set up an autoresponder to send out a newsletter to keep in touch with your customers or prospects.
  2. Create a second list with follow up messages in your autoresponder for an “up-sell” product of yours or an affiliate product.
  3. Create a landing page within your web site for that product with a new sign up box that will place interested people on your new list.
  4. When sending out your newsletter, offer free information (a small e-course, free report, etc) on that product, supply the link to your new landing page.
  5. This will place a group of people on your new list. 
  6. The first message people receive is the download link for the report or day 1 of the mini-course.  If you are using a mini course, make sure you send out follow ups within a reasonable time frame – no greater then every 4 days.
  7. Rinse and repeat.

Keep doing this for each market segment you are trying to niche out.  The result will be a higher buy rate since only the people who want that product (or product group) will sign up.  Segment 1 may be interested in weight loss products, segment 2 may be interested in organic facial cleansers – some may be interested in both. 

By breaking your big list down into smaller lists, you are creating your own market niches – which is always easier to sell to, leveraging your time and increasing your income.

Melissa is not only inspirational and great business support, but when I've had even the smallest technical issues, even on FB, she was a message or phone call away. Nice to have willing ears, to listen and even better when they can translate and communicate, clearly. Can't be taught.
