When you purchase an advertisement--especially one with prominent placement in issue--prepare an ad that seems to come from publisher. The ad should "imply" that ezine editor endorses product.
Here's some examples headlines and texts to get you started:
FREE TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS: Get this exciting free report...
SUBSCRIBER BENEFIT: Download this new FREE ebook available to you as a subscriber to this ezine...
SPECIAL OFFER: Subscribers to this ezine are eligible to download our powerful free report...
Do you see power here? The ad plays off relationship held between editor and list members. This will put them in a buying mood.
IS IT ETHICAL? Of course each of you will need to answer that question for him/herself. It is also an issue to be addressed by editor who SHOULD be reviewing all ads for propriety before they are published. Here are some basic rules to keep in mind if you use this strategy.
1) Don't make promises! 2) Provide something for FREE (report, ebook, etc.) 3) Make sure you represent a program of high value (like MMIC)
This is really one of most powerful strategies you can employ. If done properly, it will help put people in a buying mood and provide you with a significant increase in commissions.
------------------------------ PREPARE AN EFFECTIVE SIG FILE ------------------------------
Wouldn't it be great to earn money just for answering and sending your regular/daily email? That's what I'm doing simply by employing an effective use of signature files (SIG File).
What is a SIG File? In essence it is a brief "ad" designed to get CLICK of those who read your email messages. Most email programs will allow you to automatically include one of these "SIG File" at end each of your emails.
WARNING: The KISS principle applies here (Keep It Simple Stupid). Don't get carried away by adding TOO MUCH to your sig file. Focus on only one program. Use an attention grabbing headline and keep message brief and too point (no more than 6-8 lines).
Does it work? Yes! I've been able to track--on average--2 1/2 sales per month with this technique. With this particular affiliate program that is about $500 in monthly commissions simply for sending and answering emails.
