What The Heck Is An Opt-in

photo by jessicafm

OkayAn Opt-in is simply a subscriber who has agreed to get your messages.

There’s a few different ways to verify whether or not you’ve agreed to get mail from someone. Let’s say for te sake of argument that you just have to have my book that featured on the top right hand side of this page. When you enter your name and email address into that form, you will almost instantly get an email from me that asks you to please verify that you agree to receive information from profitablesistas.com.

Once you click on the link in that first email, you have opted in to my lists of subscribers (or I have a new opt-in.) For internet marketers, this is a must with all the spam laws and crazies out there.

In short, you will have agreed to receive mail from me, in addition to the book I promised, and any further communications that I think you may be interested in. I will then send you the book I promised and hope that you will follow my lead on other juicy tidbits of information.

Now, remember I talked about lists and list building. Well, these are the people on you lists who have agreed to receive you juicy information. As an internet marketer you’ll want to offer something in exchange for providing that value in email address and name. Your autoresponder will handle all of the details of your subscribers opting in and out of you subscriber list.

There’s another lesson to be learned here. At the bottom of every email you receive from any internet marketer should have a link to opt-out. Opt-out is the opposite from opt-in. If you click the opt-out link in any email, you will be , in essence, saying “I don’t wish to receive any further communication from this internet marketer.”

I hope you enjoyed this lesson. Now ladies on to list building your list of opt-in’s!

Soft and Pink Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is very attractive to many. Some even say it’s one of the
best and easiest ways to earn a living. (That’s up for debate.) However, as
competition gets tougher, you may want to consider distinguishing yourself
from those aggressive affiliate marketers.

Affiliate marketing is very attractive to many. Some even say it’s one of the best and easiest ways to earn a living. (That’s up for debate.) However, as competition gets tougher, you may want to consider distinguishing yourself from those aggressive affiliate marketers.

You know the type. I’m sure you get the emails. The greatest launch, the
newest this, the baddest that, by this and you’ll get this, click here and i’ ll promise you than. ALL THAT NOISE! Ten emails for the same product.

Competitors are promoting the exact same program, in the exact same zone or
some even on the exact same websites. ARRRGGGGHH!!

Sista, I say we change the game. We have no choice. I mean… I’m not wearing the same dress Shelly bought. And I damn sure wouldn’t wear those shoes that Lillie wore last night. You get my point. Let’s show ‘em what we got.

Some techniques and tools you may consider in order for you to stay in abreast in this business and have the chance at outwitting those simple minded competitors of yours:

I can’t say this enough times. Get you own website. It is very essential for you to have your own website when considering being a professional affiliate marketer.

Secondly, some customers visit websites to search and some visit website to purchase the thing they’ve already decided they want. For this reason, it is much easier to remember www.profitablesistas.com than a URL with tinyurl.com/beotqi33334.

Come one sistas…. Keep it simple. When you join an affiliate marketing program they usually give you promotional emails, banners and the sort. Well, who said you had to copy and paste. Add a little flava to the game. Spice it up a bit. Don’t go changing the entire thing. These folks know a bit about copy. But add a sidenote or two. Stick it on a template. Do something different. This way, your email won’t be one of the ten they see with the same headline in their email box before they open it. Remember, they are sometimes seeing the same promotions and emails over and over again. Besides, your primarily purpose is to attract or encourage people to click and read your ads and be curios enough to click through your website.

Tip: have some products of your own which are only available through your
website. A two-page report is simple enough. Once you have your website going, it is important to have at least one product or services that your customers can’t find with other affiliate’s site. You want your customers to keep coming to your site and the best way to do that is to have something unique on your site that they can’t find anywhere else.

Tip: try building relationship with people who already bought your product or
service. I mean, ultimately, these are the folks you are trying to help.

In my opinion, in order for you, as the marketer, to fully answer the query
of your potential customers, it is best to try and buy the product you are
promoting. You can better sell the product that you are trying to market. You
can share to your potential customers what a great experience you had with
the product, and this can make them interested enough to buy the product. You
may also be able to provide a support, if needed or you may provide a
confidential webinar or steps on how to use the product that you’re marketing
based on your personal experience.

Of course, you want to be totally honest about the product that you are trying to market. If you find out that the program you were endorsing is not top-notch, stop promoting it and inform your readers about it. This will help you build credibility with your lists.

Women all make mistakes and admitting your mistakes will boost your reader’s
confidence in you. You don’t have to be aggressive. You can just be you. The same you that uses bubble bath and lites candles, the same you that nurses the baby, the same you that knows when your man is lying…(just kidding).

You’re a perfect you. If you are aggressive, go for it. If you are soft and pink, there’s a place in affiliate marketing for you. Just be you. I’d venture to say that would be a great example of niche marketing.

Affiliate Marketing Commission Criterion – Who To Choose?

When thinking about becoming an affiliate marketer there is some basic knowledge required in making the decision process when searching for a product and/or company to endorse. Most of it is simple, while some of it can become a bit complicated.

Here’s what I learned today.

When thinking about becoming an affiliate marketer there is some basic knowledge required in making the decision process when searching for a product and/or company to endorse. Most of it is simple, while some of it can become a bit complicated. Note how I will use affiliate marketing and internet marketing interchangably.

When a sista is working as an affiliate marketer they need to establish a criteria. By criteria, I mean that a sista has to decide what exactly they are looking for in terms of commission from a company. Questions to ask yourself:

  • Do I want to be paid my affiliate marketing commissions weekly, bi-weekly or montly?
  • Do I want to my affiliate commissions to be in check form?
  • Do I want to earn a little bit of money – say 50% of a $20 product or am I looking to go high end and earn a few hundred bucks per affiliate sale?
  • Would I or have I used that that I am endorsing? (Be honest.)
  • Would I recommend this affiliate product to my friends and family? If not, should I really be endorsing it? Do I even care?
  • Do I even care when, where or how the dough comes in – just as long as it comes?

No two companies are alike. When establishing your criteria, it is a good idea to be selective. I mean, you are the one busting a sweat for the dime.

Internet Marketers

Some things to keep in mind. Some companies when establishing your criteria:

  1. offer recurring income.
  2. offer two-tier affiliate commissions.
  3. offer a one-time commission.
  4. will pay you for a lead.
  5. will track your visitor for a lifetime.
  6. will track your visitor for only 7, 14, 30 or 60 days.
  7. will take your lead and not pay you for it :_)

Let’s face it girls. We can go and select the first affiliate program we see. Or, we can do what we do so darn well, analyze and assess. That’s right. You know i’m telling the truth.

I went shopping the yesterday. I spent about 2 1/2 hours in macy’s digging and scruffing through the clearance racks, trying on and trying off all sorts of fabulous wears. Here’s a glimpse into my thought process during my tenure – “A black blazer (I need this for work), a sequin top (got a wedding to go to next month), a hot red miniskirt (gotta get shoes to match this).”

After all that time spent running back and forth to those cute little price checkers and dressing rooms, I decided that I didn’t want any of it. Why? Because that is what I do best. PERIOD. I’m a sista. Need you know more.

All of that was said to teach you what I learned about making the decision to work as an affiliate marketer and earn affiliate commissions. Let me repeat. A sista has to establish a criteria. You have to be selective in your choice of companies and/or products to promote – Just as you are selective about which shoes to wear with that black dress.

Once that criteria is established, it will be a lot simpler for you to scan a company’s profile, eyeball the commission rate and payout time and make a decision on whether or not to work at promoting that particular product and/or service. Uhmmm.

Here’s a short list of affiliate programs from which a sista can choose:

No choose wisely. Your affiliate commissions are waiting….
