From the desk of: Susan Wetmore
Dear fellow internet marketer... you have to face a bitter truth...
...only about 3% of the folks who want to make money on line ever manage it...
The other 97% waste their time and money chasing miracle solutions that promise to make them rich practically overnight. Of course, they never do and, eventually, they give up their dream of making money on line - which is a shame...
...because there's never been a better way for ordinary folks to make extraordinary incomes - provided they follow the right strategy.
And the vital difference between the 3% of smart operators who DO make money on line and the 97% who desperately want to make money on line - but will probably never do - is actually quite simple: the 3% focus all their efforts on building a monster, super-responsive mailing list.
Yes, you probably knew that already and you've probably heard folks say: "The money is in the list". But what does that actually mean?
Let's do the math
Industry figures state that your mailing list is worth - on average - one dollar per month, per name.
Doesn't sound much, does it? But wait...
Suppose you have a modest 250 people on your list. That means you can look forward to making - on average - (250x $1) = $250 a month - every month.
And over a year that adds up to ($250 x 12) = $3,000. Not too shabby - and certainly a lot better than those poor 97% who never see a single red cent of profit, despite spending a fortune going in the wrong direction.
So, just imagine if you increased your mailing list by a modest four or five names a day. Not too difficult - once you know what to do.
Well, four or five names a day adds up to around 125 extra names for your list in a month. So, now, instead of just 250 names, you have (250 + 125) = 375. So now you're on target to make - on average - $375 a month - or $4,500 in a full year. What's more...
... that $4,500 assumes you don't add any more names to your list.
But of course you will, because you've set your system up to run on autopilot and so it's going to continue to feed in new names all the time.
So, in another month you've DOUBLED your 250 list of 250 names to 500 - giving you an average income of $500 a month or $6,000 a year.
And that's just a drop in a bucket, because I know guys with mailing lists with 250,000 names.
So it's not hard to see that - at this rate...
You'll soon be faced with a decision most folks would love to have...
... because your mailing list will soon be making more money than YOU are earning at your job. So imagine how you could increase your list even more if you didn't have to waste your time making the Big Boss Man rich and started to look after yourself for a change?
For starters, I bet you waste a couple of hours a day commuting to work - that's TEN hours on a five day week (plus paying the ever rising cost of gas for the doubtful privilege).
Just think how bigger your list would be if - instead of wasting that time sitting in snarled up traffic you invested that time growing your list to make you even more money. And that still leaves the thirty, forty or even more hours you currently waste on the job treadmill.
But there's some bad news and some good news
Anyone can build a mailing list - after all, it's just a list of names.
It's just the same with golf: anyone can hit a golf ball.
But building a profitable list is like playing golf: after all, anyone can hit a golf ball...
... but to make that little white ball go exactly where you want it to go... that takes some pretty smart skills you're not likely to stumble upon by chance. That's why guys like Tiger Woods spend fortunes on hiring trainers - even though they obviously have a natural talent to start with.
And it's the same with creating a profitable email list:
- Attracting a list of the right names - instead of any old names - is one skill you need to master.
- But then you need to know precisely how to build an iron-bound relationship with the good folks on that list, so they spot your emails amongst the rest and rush to open yours up immediately.
- And then you need to know exactly what to do when you send out a promo that brings you those mega pay days that will change your life...
And what a change that will be...
Imagine gently coming awake and feeling it's Christmas morning.
But it's not.
But it is the morning of the day after you sent a promotional email to your list. And your list has grown even more since you sent out your previous promo - and that had a pretty awesome response.
So you can't imagine what you'll find today...
Eventually, you can't stand the anticipation any longer. So you slip out of bed and pad across the landing to your comfortable home office - no more squeezing onto the freeway for you!
You fire up your computer with a mixture of excitement and fear...
First your email account...
WOW! Email after email is headed "Notification of payment received..."
And, when you log onto your merchant account you are presented with a sum of money larger than you have ever had in your life!
Then a feeling of immense calm washes over you and you realize with absolute certainty your dream of being financially free has - at last - come true.
And that magic moment is closer than you dare hope...
Because I'm going to take you by the hand and reveal the closely guarded secrets of building a supercharged mailing list known only to a few top gurus who between them have the power to make millions of dollars just by sending out a SINGLE email.
