The Money is in the List
I have heard and read over and over the “the money is in the list”.
What does that mean?
Your Own Mail List
As an affiliate marketer, you will want a list of people on your own personal
mailing list that you can send your affiliate offers to. You can set up your lists
for certain campaigns, and/or for niche websites.
How do you get your own Mail List?
You use safelists to give away reports or bonus items and have a form
set up to capture peoples name and email address. See below
This form is set up with an email auto responder like AWeber.com.
You would configure this email list to send out the report upon
verification of email address. The above form is commonly
referred to as a “Capture Page”.
Safelist – A simple definition
A mailing list owned by another and their members have agreed
to receive offers from other members.
Using Safe Lists
You need to register for several safe lists. Then send out your offer
to their members. Most safe lists offer traffic packages to new
members for credits to spend on sending out your offer. You can
usually earn credits as well for viewing other members offers. I have
listed five recommendations below:
Keep in mind, that when you do get your own list, you don’t want to just
email them sales pitches, but also send them freebies of value so that
you build trust and a relationship with them. A good formula is:
Value Freebie, Value Freebie, Sales Offer. (Rinse and repeat).
A safelist is a good way to capture members for your own email list so
that you have a list of people to send your sales offers to.

p.s. You want to capture leads first and then sell them a product. I learned this concept just recently.
