If you're looking to master email marketing systems, there are a few fine points to consider. Let us go through the background that you should have. First, by this time you will already have to know a considerable amount of information on how to do internet advertising. You should know by now how this operates, as well as some general sales and marketing knowledge. Second, you must also know the history of email marketing, so that you have an appreciation for how it has evolved throughout the years, and also so that you don't find yourself doing anything illegal down the road.
Email marketing borders on the decisions of your clients. You know that you will earn money based on the click through rate of your emails - the higher the click rate, the more income you will generate. However, your emails should not appear as spam to your clients. Doing email marketing in the wrong way will label you as a spammer, your click through rate will drop, and your clients will not longer pay any attention to your emails. That being said, how do you generate a list of email clients quickly and comprehensively?
It is illegal to go out on the internet and use all means necessary to find out someone's email address and send them unsolicited mail. CANSPAM and FTC regulations have been put in effect that defines the rules. This was in response to email attachments that early spammers would use that contained programs that could replicate and send themselves to the all of the initial email addressee's contacts, and so on.
So how do you get email addresses of clients legally? First, try working with your supplier. Word-of mouth goes a long way, and he or she may be able to refer you to a few trusted, valued clients who already believe in the product. These people can then send your email to their social network, and so on, building you a database of email respondents all on its own.
So far, the most effective way to generate email addresses of prospective clients is by using what is called a "Rapid Conversion Page". This is a page that gets potential customers interested in your product. Make it an informative site, one that is simple but is flashy enough to get people who navigate to your site interested in your product. Here is where your sales savvy will come in, as the number of emails you eventually generate will be solely dependent on how exciting or informative your site is. On the site, have a box wherein potential customers who are interested can enter their email address, so that they can be contacted for more information on the product. You now have one of many email addresses that were voluntarily given to you, and one of many eventual clients who may be interested in other products that you would like to market to them.
Make your emails specific. If the customer is interested in one product, send them information for that product. The key here is to include links to different affiliate products that the customer, based on his initial preference, may also be interested in. Linking with many affiliates is also a good way to generate income, as this will also increase your click through rate.
