17 Email Income Hacks

Your small investment in “17 Email Income Hacks” could equate to huge results in your business…

Matt personally used these “hacks” (methods, tactics, and tools) to generate millions from e-mail marketing and now you can model after him and apply them to your business right away.

So please don’t hesitate to take action.

In a recent essay I rallied against the slacker mentality on the Internet that “information should be free”.

I noted, “Dry cleaning is not free. Automobile repair is not free. Gasoline is not free. Dental work is not free. You pay your doctor for a check-up. And the grocery store wants money before you walk out with your milk and eggs.”

I then asked the question: “Why should writers and other content creators alone be expected to work for free and vilified if they ask to be paid?”

And the response from subscribers was overwhelming in support of my argument that information is a product that can and should have a price tag like any other, and that the Internet notion that “all information should be free” is absurd.

For instance, JL writes, “The people who spout the ‘all information should be free’ philosophy are people who never created anything but opinions, which they are, of course, willing to give away to anyone who will listen.”

“People’s perception of help comes in the form of, ‘My hand is out, now you must give me something and I don’t have to pay for it,’” says WQ. “It’s the nature of sheep.”

JR weighs in: “The problem with the Internet has become too many people looking for the free answer. These people are not professionals nor are they serious about business. The basic rule of business (including information producers) is to earn a profit to continue to operate and thus continue to offer goods and services.”

MC points out, correctly in my experience, that “people who want free information rarely do anything with it anyway. Even if they do read it, they discount the value of it because they got it for free.

“In regards to your information, Bob, you paid a price, in either education or experience, to learn it. Why should someone else expect to get that same information from you for free without paying some price for it? Colleges are still charging for tuition and books, aren’t they?

“I think this all ties into this entitlement, Socialist mentality where some people feel that those who have (you, in this case) should be willing to share (for free) with those who have not, for the good of the collective.”

GB chimes in: “Though our entitlement-based culture works assiduously to preserve and enhance the myth that there is free stuff and all its attendant superstitions, nobody should work for free unless he freely chooses to do so.

“But even with such a voluntary disposition, one’s compensation then typically takes a form other than immediate monetary remuneration. Nobody works for no compensation, immediate or residual. And nobody is ‘entitled’ to the product of another.”

This is just the tip of the iceberg. I could fill another couple of pages with the replies, overwhelmingly supporting the notion that writers and other content creators should be paid for their work.

“It seems the millennial generation expects everything for free,” complains CD. “I have a son who is a composer of very fine instrumental music. He has hundreds of fans who rave about his music, but has yet to see anybody buy his albums. He gets .00001% of a penny when anyone listens to his music on the radio.”

And subscriber AS wisely makes the distinction that while free information is plentiful online, knowledge is in short supply and must be paid for:

“The problem is that most people confuse information with knowledge. In reality, information alone has little value. Everyone in the world can have all the information in the world for free, but it won’t have any real value to most of them. That’s because they don’t have a clue as to how to turn that information into knowledge, which does have value.”

AS continues, “Experience and wisdom are what you need to take information and use it to create knowledge. And knowledge is what has real value. And that’s what content creators really do. They take information and apply experience and wisdom to turn it into knowledge. And knowledge is worth something.”

Yes, the Internet has created, in the words of Harlan Ellison, a “slacker mentality” where people believe information should be free. But I was happy to discover that you, my subscribers, do not share that belief.

There’s one thing the biggest marketers are doing really well that the rest of us aren’t hardly doing at all…

They’re turning their exit traffic into CASH AND SUBSCRIBERS.

Here’s the deal…

Most marketers just figure anyone who leaves their site wasn’t a good prospect anyway. But nothing could be further from the truth.

You see, just because someone leaves your site doesn’t mean they don’t want what you’re selling—it just means they aren’t going to buy it right at this moment. Or maybe it wasn’t the right product for their needs, but you have other products that would be a good fit.

Problem is, if someone does leave your site, then they’re gone. They’ll just forget about you. I mean they have a million and one other things going on. Coming back to your site isn’t a high priority.

That’s why you need to do whatever you can to capture this exit traffic and turn them into responsive subscribers and cash-paying customers. And this is easy to do, if you know the secrets of showing them the right offer at the right time.

Now you’re probably wondering if it’s even worth trying to convert exit traffic into customers. It’s totally worth it—there are marketers who’re making an extra six and even seven figures in their business totally off the backs of exit traffic.

Think about it…

If you can make even a fraction of that amount, you’d totally be laughing all the way to the bank. You can do this. You just need a proven strategy for getting this traffic onto your list and converting them into customers.

And that’s exactly what you get inside the new List Phoenix video training course right here:

This really works. You’ll even get a sneak peek at two proven exit pages that are pulling in more than double the industry-standard conversion rates. You can totally model your own exit pages after these proven templates. It’s easy!

There’s no better or easier way to start cashing in on your exit traffic, so do it now because this is worth THOUSANDS of dollars to you!

Fiverr Blitz

Fiverr.com is a user-friendly micro job site where users post up “gigs” (jobs) they are willing to do for a mere $5. I thought that riding on Fiverr is a good way to build up your portfolio and introduce your work as a form of a trial, but it is not something you can solely rely on as a main income source…

…Until I came to know how Daniel Evans makes more than $2000/mth selling only 2 products per day on Fiverr!

If you want to know how Daniel does it, his “Fiverr Blitz” report details exactly how he takes full advantage of this crazy price of $5 to generate serious profits!

If you are a small business owner or self-employed professional, the most important thing for you to understanding about setting a marketing budget is that all money spent on marketing should be “risk capital”.

By “risk capital”, I mean money you can afford to lose without it keeping you up at night…money you do not need to pay the mortgage…money that, if you lose it all, it won’t hurt you financially or have a big negative impact on your life.

Marketing is like the stock market and gambling in this way: you can make money, but you can also lose money.

In all three endeavors, there is no guarantee you will make money.

In fact it is quite possible in all three areas (though least likely in marketing) to lose all of your money—every penny—and people do from time to time.

A case in point is SH, an energy consultant. I recommended that he do a small e-mail marketing campaign to generate leads with a free report offer.

He found a “cheap” e-list from a source I considered questionable (cheap lists virtually never work) and, despite my advice, rented the cheap list. As I expected, it generated zero results.

Then SH was hesitant to try again with a list I considered legitimate, because the reputable list broker I sent him to quoted him $1,500.

Though a fair price, the 15 hundred bucks for sending 5,000 e-mails was more than SH was willing to risk.

Did I have any alternatives? My answer to SH was as follows: “I do have a number of ideas, but here is the problem: they all cost money.

“List brokers, copywriters, ad agencies, and others want to generate leads for you and can.

“But, they cannot work for free. You have to have some cash to play, just like at the casino or the Dow. The odds are better in marketing. But they are not 100%.”

Action step: if you are a business start-up or cash-strapped solopreneur, determine and write down the maximum dollar amount of money you are willing and comfortable to risk on marketing.

Then go from there. Perry Marshall, the pay-per-click guru, advises small marketers that they can test Google AdWords for as little as $100 a day.

And it costs nothing to write an article on your area of expertise for a blog or your local newspaper or a trade journal, if you do the work yourself.

My parting observation: Do you need both time and money to be successful in marketing? No. But you do need at least one of them.

If you have no money, you use “sweat equity” and do all the work yourself. If you have no time but you are flush, spend some of that money and hire others to do the marketing for you.

And if you have neither time nor money? Then you can’t do marketing for your product or service until you find one or the other. Sorry.

A tip for self-publishers

Posted August 18th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Content Publishing Product Creation

If you are self-publishing your book as an e-book, Outskirts Press advises you also offer it as a paperbound book for these 4 reasons.

First, readers still love an old-fashioned read. For die-hard book enthusiasts, there’s still nothing like a paperbound book.

Second, signed copies add value. An autographed hardcopy not only makes a great keepsake for friends and family but it may also be that extra push a stranger needs to make a purchase.

Third, you may not convince a news editor or a bookstore owner to get on the computer to enter a promo code and download a promotional copy, but you can usually get them to take a free hardcopy from you.

If you can get a paper book into their hands right away, they’re far more likely to review it, schedule an interview or put copies of your book on the shelves.

Fourth, a paperbound book makes a better keepsake than a digital edition. You probably would like your own archival copies, right? Something in print is a nice, tangible backup to your electronic book.

Tip: If you self-publish a Kindle e-book, use Amazon’s Create Space feature to make it available as a print-on-demand (POD) paperback.

Don’t say to your audience, “You don’t need to write anything down or take photos; the presentation will be online later.”

“For many people the act of writing is an easy way to memorize something they’ve heard,” says MaryEllen Tribby. Her advice: allow people to do whatever they want during your presentations. “Personally I love when folks take photos; I often see them on many different social media sites,” she adds.

Copywriting with music

Posted August 16th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Copywriting

I keep a boom box on the shelf in my office and have two cabinets filled with CDs. Reason: ambient sound affects my mood and energy…and could work for you too.

When I am thinking through a difficult copywriting problem, I work in silence.

For sustained concentration and deep thinking—classical.

When I need to boost my energy, I play jazz or rock.

I also use jazz, rock, country, and even show tunes as background noise to keep my mood up on lighter writing tasks such as content.

Research indicates there may be a link between music and brain function: In a study at the University of Toronto, young children given weekly music lessons experienced a small but measurable increase in IQ.

Not so long ago, my friend Devid Farah was making ZERO money with teespring.

He couldn’t create a profitable campaign to save his life.

Sounds familiar?

If it does, don’t worry!

Many people struggle to come up with profitable teespring campaign ideas too.

I know this ’cause I get e-mails every day from people looking for profitable niche ideas on teespring.

Devid did something completely different though.

He didn’t contact anyone looking for profitable niche ideas.

He decided it was time for a change…A BIG CHANGE!

Here’s the story: Devid spent 6 months digging out one white hot profitable niche after another on teespring.

It wasn’t long before thousands of dollars were being made every month from Devid’s niches.

As far as teespring is concerned, the last months has been incredible for Devid.

And here’s the really great news. Devid contacted me recently and said, “I’ve more profitable teespring niche ideas then I know what to with.”

“I want to offload some of them.”

6228 hot teespring niche ideas to be exact!

That’s right, he’s giving away these money-making, deeply researched teespring niches to a lucky few.

I’ve struggled to make money with teepring in the past, due to a lack of decent teespring niches, so I was gagging to jump on board with Devid’s idea and share this valuable gift
with you.

Imagine churning out one profitable teespring campaign after another with minimum work and effort this week?

Imagine what your bank balance will look like on your next statement?

Interested?

Click here to grab these niches ideas while they are still available and start cashing in on teespring today.

This generous offer from Devid will not be up for long.

If they are gone right now, you have my apologies.

1. Do not multitask. Instead, focus on a single task for an allotted amount of time.

2. If your job comes with constant interruptions that demand your attention, take several deep breaths and then prioritize them.

3. Resist the urge to answer the phone every time it rings unless it’s your boss.

4. If someone asks you to drop what you’re doing to help with a problem, it’s OK to tell them, “I’ll be finished with what I’m doing in 10 minutes, then I’m all yours.”

5. When you “get stuck” in a task, change your physical environment to stimulate your senses. Get up, take a walk outside, and look at the flowers and the birds. Change what you’re seeing. Or turn on some relaxing music that makes you feel happy.

6. Delegate. Have compassion for yourself and reach out for help.

This isn’t going to be one of those debates about whether or not a video sales page outperforms a sale letter, everybody already knows they do.

BUT did you know that most marketers’ sales videos lack the most important thing that makes people buy?

Creating a video that makes people buy isn’t hard but it takes a precise combination of these 3 ingredients.

#1 You need the right hook.
#2 You need the right look.
#3 YOU NEED A COMPELLING SCRIPT

The hook is the angle or the “pitch” so to speak. How are you positioning the offer?

The look is everything that the viewer see AND HEARS. The imagery, the voice-over, the music and the picture quality.

Sadly, The compelling script is what most marketers lack. Most people think that the script is a dissertation of features and benefits but it’s not.

A script is a story told in a particular order. That order depends on the product you’re selling and the audience you’re selling it to.

It gets a little tricky here. There is no “one size fits all” formula to make a video sales letter; that’s why these guys are giving you 10 EXACT VIDEO SALES LETTER SCRIPTS that they use in their own multi-million-dollar online businesses!

You’ll literally have the power to compel your viewers to act on your offer!

These tools and scripts can be used for selling any type of product or service to any type audience or traffic. They are literally handing you the keys to their business in the members’ area.

You are also going to get:

* A tutorial on how to capture awesome-looking sales videos with your smartphone.

* The keys to proper lighting for that crisp white background apple style video.

* A thorough video editing lesson that even an 8-year-old can master.

* A “behind the scenes” look at their cheap equipment and budget garage studio.

* 4 step-by-step video creation modules that will demystify the process.

* 500 professional voice-over clips

* A dozen exiting movie trailer-style text animations

* Over 60 background music tracks

* ‘LIVE’ recording lessons, outtakes and walkthroughs

* Resource links and secret tools that make video creation quick and EASY.

There’s a ton of resources in the members’ area but what I like best is that it’s quick and EASY.

You don’t need a masters degree to make awesome videos. All you need is Easy Video Solutions.

How long should blog posts be?

Posted August 13th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Blogging And RSS

According to Andy Crestodino of Orbit Media Studios, the ideal length for a blog post written specifically to optimize search engine rankings is 1,500 words.

An analysis from serpIQ found that longer text correlated with higher rankings. MOZ analyzed 3,800 posts on their own blog, and the longer posts attracted more links.

“Longer pages generally attract more links and these links support a higher rank,” writes Andy. His findings are in sharp contrast to the 300 to 500 words I am given as the length specification by potential clients who want blog posts written.

Beware of purchased e-mail lists

Posted August 11th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under E-Mail Marketing

If you get an offer in your e-mail to purchase an e-mail marketing list for your next campaign, run, don’t walk.

It is rarely a good idea to send e-mail marketing messages to purchased lists. You should only e-mail to legitimate opt-in e-lists, meaning the people on the list have subscribed and agreed to receive e-mail messages. And virtually 100% of the time, opt-in e-lists are offered to marketers for rental only, not purchase.

What’s the worst that could happen if you purchase an e-list? When you send a campaign to e-mail addresses that either don’t exist, or when a large percentage of recipients report your e-mail as spam—because they have not opted in to get it—you could lose access to your domain and your ISP could close your account.

Bottom line: stick to lists that were generated using proper permission-based sign-ups and rented from a real list broker. You can find list brokers under the Mailing List category on my site’s vendor page.
