Less than 10% of your subscribers might actually be reading your email messages. Scary, but true. Some of that is your subject lines, some is your relationship, but some… is that the spam-bots are blocking your delivery. Not cool.

Let’s face it, with spam filters and other delivery problems, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get your messages through to the very people who have requested them.

So, above everything else, you’ve got to make sure your messages are being delivered. There are a variety of things you can do, but the one thing I want to mention here is simply this: check your spam score before sending out any email to your lists.

I use e-Filtrate and the built in Spam Assassin check at Aweber.com. Both of these allow Read more

As you already know, especially is you have signed up for my Building Your Email List Mini-Course
(Sign up at the top right hand corner of my web), people (your Target Market) use different words when they search online. These search terms are called keywords.

Keyword Research tools assist in discovering topics that people are currently searching for that are related to your market product or service. You would use these keywords in the articles you write, each day, that are each 250-500 words, relating to the topics your prospective market is searching for. Provide articles that
answer the readers’ questions in their searches.

Example: “Dog Training” when entered into Google Suggest
tells me that I should write articles about
“Dog Training Secrets” or “Dog Training New Jersey”.

And, of course, we all know that building our list is building our market contacts; rather we are a brick and mortar business, or an online marketer selling our own products and affiliate products.

Key Insight: My Coach, Connie Green, has taught me that the most popular topics, have the most competition within the search engines–meaning, that you will be fighting against hundreds or thousands of competitors to get the attention of the market to your article. This course, by Connie Green, will help you quickly:

Do you find that when you are “starting” to create your own product to sell online, “finishing” it may never happen?

One of the things I love about affiliate marketing is —

** You don’t have to create your own products **

If you are like me,when I first started and still when I am busy I find the idea of creating a product to

be an overwhelming and even frightening task. We can all come up with great excuses:

* I don’t have any good ideas!

* I’m not a writer!

* There’s too much competition!

* I don’t know how to set everything up!

* I can’t figure out where to start!

  • It’s too hard!

I’m sure with a few minutes of thinking about it, we could come up with a list of many more delaying tactics.

Many of these delaying tactics are helped with a coach. Helping you through your fear and guiding you with the technology part. That’s how I started to get through these excuses.

Then, again, with affiliate marketing, you don’t need your own products.

  • You can learn how to promote someone else’s already proven successful offer for a commission.
  • It sounded easy enough – but, I decided to take a course – instead of my own trial and error.

Why try to create a product and teach on every topic imaginable in your market? I can earn just as much money by simply  promoting someone else’s program that I have tried and know works!

Newsletters & Emails to Subscribers

What else can you do with them?

Do you have an email list? Are you submitting online articles?


  • When you send emails to your subscribers or send out your regular newsletter, post an article, do you stop at that? Have you heard of re-purposing?

Start posting the updates you send to your subscribers and your newsletters or ezines to your blog as well.

Some of your subscribers may not get a chance to read your emails before they are shuffled down their inbox screen or worse yet, they may have filters that are blocking your emails altogether. This will allow them to still receive the valuable information you have to share AND give you more quality content for your blog.

Okay, so you are a Home Based business or an entrepreneur (a businesspreneur) now

Imagine this…

You create your product. You put up your sales page and order button. Then you unleash your advertising skills to get your offer in front of as many people as possible.

And then…

Nothing. No sales. Well, maybe a tiny trickle. But not the flood of PayPal or Clickbank notifications that we you were expecting.

No matter what type of affiliate product or service you’re selling, you’re probably always looking for ways to get your offers in front of more prospects… and you’re looking for ways to get folks to click on your affiliates links. That’s because marketing is a numbers game – the more targeted prospects who see your offers , or communicate to you via email, phone or in person, the more money you make.
