How To Build A Huge Opt-In List As An Affiliate

by Anik Singal

One of the biggest mistakes I see affiliates making everyday is that they build a short-term business where they just make one sale at a time. If they stop running ads today, their business shuts down! The strategy we'll discuss today will build any affiliate a long-term business.

This strategy will allow you to upsell your visitors for expensive services. Even more importantly, you'll soon become recognized as an expert in your field and making money will be all the easier!

So what is this strategy?

You guessed it, it's building an opt-in list with a newsletter/e-zine.

By having an opt-in list you're building a customer base instead of just some sales! You can sell the same customer over and over without any more advertising costs. You build a trust with your readers that makes them loyal in doing business through your affiliate link!

So, as an affiliate, how do you build an opt-in list?

How To Build The List

The simplest way is to start deferring all of the traffic you pay for to an opt-in page. After the person opts-in, have them land on a thank you page where you pre-sell them for the affiliate product.

So, you're probably already building traffic to your site. Now, instead of sending that traffic directly to your affiliate link, send it to a page that has an opt-in.

How Should My Opt-In Page Look?

The next most popular question is how to make the opt-in page look. Believe it or not, there actually IS a strategy behind this. Your page MUST be small, short and to the point. This means that you should NOT have a long sales letter type page to get them to opt-in.

Your entire opt-in page should fit in one screen with NO scroll down bar. Have a strong headline, 5-6 bulleted benefits and then a nice big opt-in. You'll be amazed at how high the results can be.

But as always, test it, don't take my word for it.

Quick Ways To Generate Traffic

The point of this article is not to teach you how to build traffic, but here are 5 really quick techniques to use so you can test what you just learned.

1. Article Submissions: Submit articles around the web regarding your niche and have your biography link go to a opt-in page. You'll be amazed at how well this technique works in building a list.

2. Pay-Per-Click: The easiest way to immediately begin getting traffic. Send all of your paid traffic directly to the opt-in page, then have the person land on a page that pre-sells the product they were looking for. Make sure to test this. Sometimes your conversions on the front-end can fall, but they increase over the long-run.

3. E-zine Ads: E-zine ads are a great way to quickly and cost effectively boost your list. Write an ad promising a "free membership or information" and send the traffic to an opt-in page.

4. Viral Marketing: Takes some time to kick in but can be extremely effective! Other people will spread your message and your message will have links to your opt-in page.

5. Linking strategy: This option is a bit more work, so only use it once you have tested and know that you have a winner. Start trading links with related websites and you will see a great boost in traffic.

In conclusion, make sure you understand that you should be building a long-term affiliate business and not just something that makes you a few dollars on one sale.

If you ever stop advertising, be in position to still have a powerful business.

Finally, remember to make sure that your opt-in page fits on one computer screen and is small. Always test the page by quickly driving some traffic. If you can prove me wrong, please do so...
