The True Internal Simplicity of Email Marketing Programs

List building is simple, as are all effective email marketing programs. It takes some work, but it’s also really pretty easy. A lot of times people complicate it all because they feel like it has to be this complicated process. After all, if it were simple, they would have figured it out already, right? Then they jump from complicated system to complicated system, and never end up building much of a list for themselves. Well, I’m going to break down the list building process for you right now, and you’ll see how simple effective email marketing programs really are.

There are just a few things that you need to have and few things you need to do to build a list for your email marketing program…

First, you need to have qualified traffic. Some people make the mistake of just thinking that you need traffic. General traffic isn’t going to do; you need what we call qualified traffic if you are going to succeed at direct email marketing. Basically speaking, traffic is qualified when it is composed of people who are interested in what you are offering. Simple right?

Next, you need a web site that is capable of building a list for you and your email marketing program. This is a site that is designed around capturing the email addresses of the qualified traffic you are sending to it. Generally that means that the site is built around getting people to fill out an email form that you place on it. Generally you bribe them into doing this by giving them some sort of free offer, like a small free eBook or the like, if the give you their email address for your direct email marketing.

And that’s it. There are only two steps to this process. Find qualified traffic, and drive it to your site that is capable of building your list. It’s true that there are a number of different ways to go about finding and driving traffic to your site.

It’s also true that there are a number of different ways you can design the site that’s going to succeed at getting people to give you their email addresses. These are both true, but there’s no need to complicated the overall process more than you need to. In fact, it’s generally better to keep these processes as simple as possible for your email marketing campaign. Simple is better. Simplicity breeds success.

Now do you think email marketing programs are really inherently complicated?

Affiliate-Associate Marketing

E-commerce helped to turn conventional marketing strategies upside down, and added dynamism to the marketing landscape. The internet generated article marketing, added another notch to niche marketing, and also launched affiliate or associate marketing. As a result, affiliate marketing is now at the top of every strategic business plan. Because of its success, it is now regarded as the top online marketing strategy. So just what exactly is affiliate marketing, and why do you need to know about it?

In response to the first question, affiliate marketing is a marketing technique where a merchant, (product owner or service provider), rewards affiliates, for each referral. These referrals are generated as a direct result of the affiliate’s marketing initiatives. Every business owner needs to understand affiliate marketing, because it is big business. It now generates billions of dollars in sales revenue on an annual basis. Revenue flows both to the business owner, and to the affiliate.

When well orchestrated, affiliate marketing is a very effective marketing tool. It will result in an increase in website traffic, as well as an increase in revenue. Essentially, it is a revenue sharing approach to marketing, and involves a contract between a merchant on the one hand, and an affiliate on the other. Merchants will be able to gain maximum exposure for their brand, without having to spend any money if there are no results. This exposure will lead to increased revenue and profit. The affiliate will also increase revenue, as payment is based on the number of referrals made.

In terms of revenue sharing, affiliate marketers are paid a commission for the business they refer. They will either direct traffic to the merchant’s website, or help to sell their products by placing the merchant’s advertisement on their site. The joint venture between the merchant and affiliate is usually formalized by way of an Affiliate Program. There are several programs which are now used, the two most popular are Pay Per Click, and Pay Per Performance.

As the name Pay Per Click suggests, the affiliate is paid each time a visitor ‘clicks’ on the banner or link that directs them to the merchant’s website. The affiliate will be paid even if the visitor does not make a purchase. This is probably the least lucrative affiliate program option, because payment tends to be small, usually about $0.05 to $0.10 per click. Pay Per Performance includes both Pay Per Lead and Pay Per Sale. With Pay Per Lead, the affiliate marketer will get paid on every occasion that a visitor clicks through to the merchant’s website, and then takes some action that creates a lead for the merchant.

With Pay Per Sale, an affiliate gets paid every time a sale is generated by a visitor that clicks through from the merchant’s ad on the affiliate’s site. This is a more lucrative option, as the commission can be as much as 20% of the final sale price. However, it is only beneficial if the conversion rate of leads to sales is relatively high, for the product or service. Affiliate marketing is now a very profitable method of advertising products and services. The merchant is able to market their product on several sites, and in the case of a Pay Per Sale program, those ads are free until a sale is made. In this way, merchants can ensure that their marketing dollars are being put to the best use.

One of the most successful proponents of affiliate marketing is Amazon has built a successful associate marketing program, which boasts over 1 million affiliates. As with any good marketing tool you do have to plan for success. So the basis of any affiliate program must be a good overall business plan, a good product and a solid marketing strategy.
