For those of you wanting to be a “flash in the pan” type of affiliate marketer, by all means, there’s no reason to have a subscriber list…..you can do your one-time promotion, hope to make a quick buck and then you can move on to your next “get rich quick” idea. Matter of fact, to keep it real, before I got serious a month ago, I started out by thinking I could be “that guy”. I will buy the product, buy some ads and……….
people would be knocking down my proverbial door wanting to by my product……….yeah, ummm………that lasted a week. If you’re looking to have a lasting AND lucrative career doing this, there’s a reason you’ll here the phrase “the money is in the list” over and over and over. To think I was that “I don’t need no stinkin’ list!” guy……cracks me up now!
When you come across the most successful marketers, just ask them and you’ll find they have 5, 10 or 20 thousand email subscribers! An email subscriber expects email…..as a YouTube subscriber expects new videos periodically, so most will stay a subscriber for hopefully up to a year (the normal lifetime expectancy before someone “moves on” per se or so I hear in the field).
If you’re reading this, chances are you are subscriber of mine (if not, you can go to my “simple two-step formula” page and sign up in 10 seconds). Come on, I had to say that…..because a HUGE subscriber list is what I want for Christmas and nothing else. Don’t be short-sighted like I was…..get into this and do it right, make a list and check it twice….tis the season ya know!
