Affiliate Marketing: What Do you Mean by Luring People Into your List? (part 2)
If you are selling a gardening product, it will make sense to you to offer an interview with people who are experts in gardening, to offer a great download of an eBook on growing roses, a weekly email course on how to properly grow roses etc. It can be anything as long as the customers perceived it as a valuable free gift. You will give it to them in exchange for getting the customer's email and name. That is when you will be able to have multiple contacts with the customers.
So the next thing that you should is to search for good resources that you will be able to give away. It makes no point if you are going to give something that they will be freely available in hundreds of different places. The best way is to write your own free report or have people write it for you. When you do it this way, it will be a piece that is unique and people will only get it after they have subscribed to your list.
The second way to find a bait is to ask the product manager or affiliate manager directly whether they have any content that you can give to your visitor so that you will be able to sell better. Most of the time, they should have something to give you which will helps you in your affiliate marketing business.
A bait and a newsletter sign up form is the important component of your business which will enable you to have a successful affiliate marketing business. So do make sure that you will understand it. The most important thing is to apply it once you understand the concepts.
