Are you good at getting people to look at your programs? When I first started Internet Marketing, I couldn't sponsor ANYONE!!! The harder I tried, more I failed...Sound familiar?
Now, I've discovered "secret" to success. It is not unusual for me to have 20 or more referrals in ANY program that I promote...How did I do it? Here are some facts...
Opt-in Groups DO Work If you Follow rules.
Most importantly, remember that other members of opt-in groups are real people...They do NOT want hype, they want facts, just like you do. These are some basic rules to follow to gain their respect...Remember, if you lose their respect, you will never get them back.
1. KNOW your product
Don't promote anything unless you truly believe. Study program, know details of it. Be ready to answer questions...If you don't have answer ready, someone else might, and you will lose referral. If you don't know answer, be honest. Don't mislead people.
2. Do NOT Use Bounce Back Messages
I know that there are many places on internet which advise you to do so, but honestly...I will never read an autoresponder message, unless it's one that I requested. Plus, if I recognize name of a person who uses one, I will not join their programs...There are many people promoting, so we CAN pick and choose. Don't fall into what I consider to be a form of spam.
3. Do NOT respond to an ad unless you truly have a question, or comment which might be useful to sender.
Receiving an opt-in ad does not give you right to send that person an ad in return. Again, I do not like this form of advertising, and most other people don't either. BUT..if you TRULY have something to say...a question or comment about their program, or another program which goes hand in hand, introduce yourself, make a new contact, even a friend.
4. Do not use phony headlines
It's okay to try different titles to your ads, but always make sure that content of ad applies to subject. There's nothing worse than opening an ad on advertising and finding some hype on a new program. Don't trick someone into opening your ad, they will never believe you again.
5. Always respond to those in need...
If you see an email titles "Help!"...read it and respond in any way you can...We, as Internet Marketers, should be there for each other... I have received help in this way. BUT...reserve it for true need situations The same goes with "unsubscribe" subjects...Write to them to let them know exactly how to unsubscribe from list in question...Don't let any person in need go unnoticed...One day, you might be that person...
Build Lasting Contacts...
These rules are important to "real people" out there...Once they learn that you can be respected, they will look to see what you are involved in. Build a Group of "Discussion Buddies". Contacts are most important part of your success...Without them, you are sure to fail, because they help you in so many ways...discussing successes and failures, encouraging you, pointing out new and different resources, and in so many more ways...What started out for me as a support group has built into a group of very good individual friendships I wouldn't trade for world.
