What if I lost everything? All my sites shut down. Everything taken away from me except what I know about building an email list.
How would I build my list back from scratch?
I wanted to create this post to share what I would to do quickly build back my list and my online business.
First thing I would do is find a product or service I could sell and earn commissions.
I wouldn’t create my own, quite yet, just because I want to create cash flow in my business in the least amount of time.
After I found a good product, next I would work backwards and create a high converting landing page to start collecting leads. I would create a short video offering value I could give away as a lead magnet and help boost my conversion rates to generate more leads.
Of course I would split test a couple different landing pages and thank you pages.
If you’re not split testing, you’re not a marketer!
Then I would create a follow up sequence that helps convert my new leads into loyal buyers. In this follow up series I would include stories, case studies, and show proof it works and build trust with my new subscribers
There’s only 3 reasons people don’t buy your products.
1. They don’t believe it will work
2. They don’t believe it will work for them
3. They don’t feel like they are going to get any support after they buy.
If you can hit these head on in your follow up emails and videos you’ll increase your conversions.
Before I start driving traffic… Yeah I know this is what you’ve been waiting for… I would make sure I track everything. So I would place tracking links and conversion pixels so I know where my sales are coming from.
This way I know what works and where to scale.
Guess what? It’s time for traffic…
Let the fun begin!
I would go and purchase traffic. It doesn’t matter if it’s Facebook ppc, Bing ppc, or solo or ezine ads.
I would test out 3-5 different vendors or different ad sets to see what converted the best.
Then I would scale the crap out of it!
Once you find what converts it’s easy to scale.
Most people never track anything so they don’t know what is bringing in the money and what is actually bleeding money from their bank accounts.
That’s it… it’s easier than you think to build an email list from scratch.
A few tools you’ll need to make this all happen:
Leadpages – This is what I use to split test different landing pages and thank you pages
Getresponse – You’ll need a place to collect the leads
Clickmeter – This is a great tracking tool I use.
High converting offer – This is my most recommended product
Now it’s your turn to take massive action!
