What They Don’t Tell You About E-Mail Marketing For Affiliates…

Affiliate marketing information abounds online, as does information on almost all aspects of e-mail marketing. E-mail marketing resources tell you how to build opt-in lists, how to build squeeze pages, how to write free reports to put on those squeeze pages, how to use social media marketing to drive traffic to your opt-in list-building pages, how to load up your autoresponder messages so they go out automatically and so much more… But what DON’T they tell you about e-mail marketing for affiliates?
Consider this scenario: You’re new to affiliate marketing and have been reading various blogs, e-books and reports on using e-mail marketing as part of your affiliate marketing promotional mix. You’ve learned, correctly, that a list of targeted leads who have double-opted-in to your list will normally become your largest source of affiliate commissions. You follow their advice, put up your squeeze page and starting pushing it like crazy using Twitter, FaceBook and all the other important social media websites – and the signups to your opt-in list start rolling on in…
Oh yeah – you have to either upload a series of messages into your autoresponder or start sending out broadcast e-mails. Great! You can just tell them about… ahh… umm… Gee, being brand new at this, what do you write? You don’t have the knowledge base yet since you’re just getting started affiliate marketing. So how can you write informative, helpful e-mails to send out?
If you’re targeting a niche like car racing, baby showers or snowboarding you may have enough experience to get started – just make an ordered list of what people need to know and start writing your e-mails. But many starting out in affiliate marketing want to target the Internet marketing / online marketing / making money online crowd, since that’s the niche they’re most interested in themselves. But you’re new to affiliate marketing and e-mail marketing – so what do you send?
Fortunately there’s an easy solution…
Send them the information they need written by experts. You don’t want to steal, err, ‘borrow’ other marketers’ e-mails, that’s both unethical and illegal. You could send articles from the article directories, but you have to state the author’s name and link so that builds their credibility, not yours. What you need are PLR resources you can put YOUR name and links on and load into your autoresponder.
PLR, or private label rights, mean you can take that product and use it as if it were your own creation – in most cases you have almost the same rights to it as if you wrote it yourself. And since you will be reading each e-mail before adding your name and affiliate links, you WILL already have that knowledge by the time it starts going out to prospects, so it’s not like you’re sending about anything you don’t already know. Bingo – legal, ethical and it’s YOU sending them YOUR information.
Take a look at the PLR e-courses at Optin-List-Building.com. As I write this there are already 18 different e-courses there, all of them dealing with aspects of online marketing, and all ready to use for e-mail marketing for affiliates – there’s even an e-course on affiliate marketing itself! And all come with those PLR rights…
Most of the series are 5, 6 or 7 days, so you can use them as a stand-alone e-course or combine 2 or more into a longer course. Each also comes with a ready-made squeeze page and confirmation page, so you can use those to help build opt-in lists too. And to top it off, you get a salespage & download page as well, because each course also comes with resell rights.
In other words, you get to learn from the e-course, use it to build opt-in lists, use it as content to send to your subscribers, and use it as a product to sell yourself – 4 different ways to profit from each course!
And THAT’S how to overcome what they don’t tell you about e-mail marketing for affiliates – download your PLR marketing e-courses now and get cracking – your affiliate marketing commissions are waiting!
