10,000 in Your List…Now What?

One of my friends mentioned that he’s built a list of 10,000 opt-in members into his mailing list within a period of 7 days…so what’s he supposed to do now, he asks.

I don’t think any responsible email marketer will give advice before finding out more information.

For example, how was the list built? Using PPC? Expired domain traffic? Co-reg traffic? Via opt-ins through Squidoo or HubPages? Via an article directory? As a result of a follow up/update list after buying a product (either an affiliate product or your own product).

Each of these channels comes with it’s own level of permission – and if you’re a permission-based marketer, you’ll realized that someone who’s just bought something from you has a higher level of loyalty and stickiness, compared to someone who’s just downloaded a free report off your site.

So back to the 10,000 mailing list – determine the source of list/lead generation is important. Are they emotionally invested in you? Have they spent money purchasing something you offer? Called into one of your teleseminars and stayed the full duration because they found the information compelling? Are they merely curious strangers? Or evangelists for your brand (also known as “raving fans”).

Once you’ve sorted that out, you need to figure out the demographics of your list too. What’s their geo-origin? US/Canada? Europe? Asia?

Obviously some forms of monetization will work better than others.

Pay-Per-Click Content Publishing: You probably would know that adsense publishing and CPC publishing is probably my least favorite source of monetization (mainly because you’re sending visitors AWAY from your site for $0.10 to $0.50 per click). So unless you’re generating a couple of hundred thousand uniques a month who come back repeatedly, it’s not going to be very viable.

-

CPA Marketing: despite what you might hear, the bulk of revenue is still based in US/Canada for CPA/lead generation type monetization strategies. So you might have 30-50 offers that are “international” (even then a number of countries will be excluded), and there’s only so much you can do from Europe and Asia.

-

Affiliate marketing/product sales: to do either of these well requires that you understand your list. This might include getting them to take a survey and compiling the demographic data. A good way to increase responsiveness for this is to offer some type of incentive. Maybe a $20 or $50 coupon in a mini-sweepstakes, valid at Amazon, iTunes, home depot or some site which is relevant to your list.

-

The most important element I would suggest is to segregate your list into smaller sublists, especially if there’re multiple demographics in there – teens and babyboomers will have different interests and breaking the list into at least 2 different lists will have a huge impact on your conversions (just imagine having 10,000 keyphrases in a single adgroup…it doesn’t work does it? It’s a similar principle for email marketing too).

-

Once you’ve got your lists broken up, work on your sales funnel and go beyond just promotion one ebook or service to that list. Ideally you’d want a funnel of multiple related and relevant products and services that you’d market to the list over the course of your relationship with them.

It’s all about the permission thing and if you’re speaking to their needs, there’s no reason why your list wouldn’t continue to generate the big bucks for you.

So think long term and the list will do well for you.

-

On the choice of autoresponders: Aweber and GetResponse are the big ones. I personally prefer Aweber, and I know marketers who’re happy with GetResponse too.

    We prefer to have services of a real estate agent or service provider that offers us its property
    services and solutions to end all our property related worries and queries.
    The data compiled by Nationwide reveals that the property market started 2010 strongly, with the average cost of a residential
    property in the UK appreciating by in excess of £1,300 in January to £163,481.

    When hiring professional agents to manage properties for sale, the result is really different if buyer or seller does their task alone.

    Hopefully, as you become more familiar with the various services provided by commercial electricians,
    you will then find it easier to make up your mind about who to hire for the task of working on
    any electrical constructions that need to be made for your business.
    With the great importance of electricity in our
    life, the importance of an electrician can never be
    ignored at all. It will take you about 10 years on average to become “successful” (in big Bollywood terms) in your field.

    I do want to experience the videos made
    by myself quickly. As usual do not forget to ground the
    5th pin with a 0. MS SQL also offers buffers
    management feature wherein a list of records frequently sought are stored in the buffer memory (known as cache memory).

    Perhaps cognitive dissonance is to blame for our stubborn refusal of global
    ideals. Being an interactive toy, Fijit Friends are also capable of detecting
    and responding to other media platforms such as
    mobile applications and television commercials, to name a few.
    We’ll drop a name-check on you for now, but after the first of

    In terms of buying or selling a property you need to have a good and experienced real estate agent who has handled the
    matter beforehand only. Waiting for the true localization for a home is like staring at Seven Hills,
    GA. Nestled in the lower ranges of Himalaya, it is flanked
    by cedar, pine, rhododendron and yoke.

    Actually, online printing services are better than any other solution provider out
    there for quite some reasons; there are usually good and
    reliable printing service providers online than you think.
    Thus, the online printing services are flourishing day by day and more and more people are
    flocking to the websites of these concerns to place their
    order. This is an excellent tool for the business traveler.

    Drain blocking problem is the most widespread problem
    in homes and offices. Instead of pouring the harsh chemicals like
    Drano down your drains, try out a solution that’s based in natural ingredients.

    Things get flushed away that were never meant to ‘ from diapers and
    feminine hygiene items.

    Test out your main shut-off valve to your property.
    If you are a senior citizen, you will also be given
    a senior citizen discount of $25 off the normal checkup or service of your home’s sewer line.
    The minute the Zep samples arrived in the mail, we here
    at Lifestyle had some sink drains, bathtub units and toilets that
    needed special care.

    The future of the Internet also indicates a need for a Universal Communications device, wireless, transportable, usable Anywhere, at Anytime to connect to Anything, whether work applications, voice, entertainment, whatever.

    This allowed computers to enter into our homes and has allowed us to do more with our computers year after year.
