We’ve all heard that building a targeted ‘Opt-In’ list is essential to staying in business online.
Well, I have to agree because this is where you’ll always have a continuous source of FREE Targeted Traffic (also known as ‘Sticky Traffic’) to advertise your services or related content for years to come.
Wouldn’t you agree that it makes sense?
And we all know that when it comes to online marketing, ‘Email’ is where the $MONEY$ is created because it allows you to follow up with potential clients until they decide to buy from you.
However, the most common issue is that consumers don’t know where to begin when it comes to creating their tailored Opt-In list.
Here’s a simple definition for those of you who are new to Internet marketing and don’t know what an ‘Opt-In’ list is:
An Opt-In list is essentially a database of people’s names and email addresses who have registered to an email list using a web form, allowing the list owner to send them periodic emails on the topic of their choice.
“I’m granting that list owner permission to send them an email,” I explained.
When they join your opt-in list, they permit you to send them offers or related information on the issue they are interested in. This is referred to as ‘Permission Email Marketing.’
This is by far the safest email marketing method, as you will not be accused of ‘SPAM.’
It would help if you comprehended this from the outset.
So, now that you have a clear understanding of what an Opt-In list is and how it can benefit you and your business, I suppose it’s time to share with you the simple ‘Ten Step Process’ that I’ve put together for you on how to build your targeted Opt-In list that you can email your offers to at any time for profit.
Step #1: Determine your Niche or target market.
This is a crucial step since it is here that you must determine who your target market will be for the product or service you will provide.
So, if I wanted to sell a book about Internet Marketing, my target market would be those interested in Internet Marketing.
Step #2: Is it possible to reach your target demographic or Niche via the internet?
This is where you should conduct some preliminary research to see whether or not your specific target market can be reached over the internet.
Conduct keyword research utilizing keywords relevant to your target market to accomplish this.
As a general rule, if your targeted keywords don’t generate 15,000 or more monthly searches, this is a market I wouldn’t pursue because there isn’t much demand.
Step #3: Is this a profitable niche for them?
This is where you should look into your competition to discover if anyone is spending money on this Niche.
You can do this by visiting Google at http://www.google.com and filling out the form with your desired keywords relating to your Niche.
You’ll get a list of search results as a result of this.
Those are your competitors, but more importantly, you’ll notice small adverts to the right.
These are Google Adwords-sponsored advertisements.
This indicates that someone is willing to pay to promote in this Niche and is paying attention to it. They must be making money if they are willing to pay for advertising.
That’s fantastic news.
Step #4: Use forums to uncover difficulties in your target audience.
By simply skimming the messages and looking for the most prevalent threads, you may learn precisely what your potential clients’ top problems are.
By doing so, you’ll be able to quickly determine what your target market’s most pressing issues are and how you can assist them in resolving them.
Go to Google http://www.google.com and type in your desired keywords with ‘+ forums’ after them to find forums relating to your Niche.
(For instance, online marketing + forums)
Step #5: What’s blocking them from achieving their goals?
This is where you must figure out what is preventing them from achieving what they want to resolve the issues they are facing, i.e., you must collaborate with them to assist them in resolving their problems.
It doesn’t matter if it’s a product or a service they require.
Step #6: What solutions can you provide to their problems?
This is where the funds are allocated.
Now all you need is a product or service that will address your potential client’s problem to collect your portion of the money.
Don’t be discouraged if you don’t have your product or service.
I’m going to give you two resources to locate items or services for which you can become an affiliate connected to any niche and will pay you a commission for every transaction you make just by directing people to their website.
