Week 3: Growing Your Email Subscribers
We had an old course, How to make a $1,000 a month Business (no longer available).
About 1.355% buy the course when they visit the landing page.
Which means that 98.645% leave our website without doing anything. Ouch!
Amnesia marketing is when marketers have to start from the bottom every time they promote a product. Typically caused by a lack of email subscribers and a guaranteed way to reach their audience. This is not a Drake song!
Instead, to avoid amnesia marketing, get your audience’s email addresses.
Then you can contact them about the latest happenings in your business or your new product. No starting from the bottom.
On that same landing page, we added an email pop-up and asked if we could help answer any questions. 15% of visitors left their email address and we were able to reach out to every one.
Here’s the email pop-up we used:
We PERSONALLY email every single person with this:
Here are the results from the first month we did it:
That’s for a $300 product * 20 = $6,000 extra dollars each month = $72,000 more buckaroos a year.
All from getting emails.
Fact: If people like you, they want to hear from you!
This week we are setting up your email collecting infrastructure. So that in the upcoming weeks as you are getting more traffic, you have the right tools in place.
Many of you cited a goal of growing your email lists as part of Summer of Marketing. This is especially for you.
