This is exactly why you must ensure that whatever you do, related to your site, involves collecting names and e-mail addresses for your list at one time or another. Here are some numbers starting with simple strategic alliances. Say for example that a strategic alliance will provide two thousand visits average. With lists of this quality, it is not unusual for at least 25% of your visitors to subscribe to something if your sales letter is doing its job. This might not seem too much for now, but let's say you make ten strategic alliances and manage to build a list of 5000 subscribers, would not be much problem if the quality of strategic alliances are a good level and get a good number of visitors. A list of 5000 is very good, and you will make money through these strategic alliances. When you start dividing your affiliate commissions make sure you are really high, in fact so high that you should not be doing direct sales.
These are the profits. No sales money, unless you are building resources. This is because it gives 50% or more per sale, and are your members through strategic alliances that will make your list is built of fire-proof, not only important numbers, if not a very good speed. Each time you release a new product, adding more and more people to your lists to which you can promote and can promote for you. It's a snowball effect, which is great because it means that the more you get, the more you get, and every new product that will increase your resource sets, the size of your list and add to your promotion power for future products. This will make much more money than they would through other means and methods. Before continuing I want to be hundred percent sure that you understand how this works.
People create their own sites to build lists that are fitted directly to build their lists. This is great, it works, but when there are guides that tell you that you concentrate all your efforts on building your list, makes me feel a bit annoying at times, for the simple reason that you are not telling the whole story. It is okay to build your list as a top priority, and rightly so in reality, but along with the construction of members, clients, customers and prospects long-term strategic alliances for this to be successful, you need to integrate with your other marketing methods, and this is what most do not tell you. Once you have mastered and understood, again, as each of these resources are linked to each other, and can not be viewed as entities separate start to see bigger and better results, and begin to be faster too. Now if you think about what you just said, and you step back, you should be able to see immediately that is not the case out and get a list as big as possible, as quickly as possible, on your own. This is what many teach, but the success of the whole system is in linking the different resources by launching your own products.
