Internet marketing is an excellent way for online businesses to successfully promote their products and services. An exciting and extremely successful facet of Internet marketing that should be thoughtfully considered would be a well-utilized email marketing campaign. Email marketing should never be dismissed out-of-hand, as it often is, as simply spamming. Spam is an evil in email marketing, but the entirety of email marketing is not, nor would your campaign be, spam. By deciding not to contact would-be customers via email correspondence, you could effectively be sabotaging your chances at conversions and successful Internet marketing.
Compiling a legitimate email list is where most marketers deciding to make the plunge into email marketing are stymied. One option is of course by purchasing an email list from a distributor. Of course, this option is not terribly viable due to the possibility of most addresses being cold leads or calls (borrowing from phone marketing), with most addresses belonging to people who might not be interested in the products or services you may be offering. The fact is that even if there are interested parties that might be reached in this way, they are more than likely to delete your mailing due to the fact that it is unsolicited and unrequested. This happens as these recipients view your mailing as indeed spam, whether it is or not. In this manner, you will have wasted time, effort, and money, by mailing your sales letter in an unfocused campaign. There is a better way.
A far more successful and legitimately viable way to generate an email list is by allowing current and potential customers (your website visitors) to register with your site by providing their email information on a simple online form you provide. In this manner, you can build an ever-expanding list of interested parties to correspond with. Sending email correspondence detailing all the affiliate products you offer, especially those of a higher price point to these interested parties will be an excellent way for you to increase your chances of conversions and commissions. Better yet, authoring a simple e-newsletter each month detailing new technology or developments relating to your niche market can be an impressive addition to your reputation; showing those recipients that you possess great knowledge in the subject matter and indeed have your finger on the pulse of all new developments.
