Building mailing list. What's the latest buzz?

Building mailing list. What's the latest buzz?

One of the most common topics among internet marketers seems to be building a huge and responsive mailing list. Marketers' innovations never seem to be in short supply when it comes to building mailing lists:

* Autoresponders
* Squeeze pages
* Safelists
* Pop-ups
* Subscribe forms...

The list is endless.

But one key feature that seems to elude most marketers is how can you build your mailing list using other peoples' efforts? One such tool, the Promotion Bar (http://alibrown.mi3093.hop.clickbank.net), has just been released.

The cool thing about this little tool is that once installed on a web site, it can spread like wildfire potentially to hundreds, maybe thousands of web pages with no further input from you. Visitors to your web site get the Promotion Bar by pasting a single line of code on their web sites to add functionality to their web sites:

* Their visitors can bookmark their web sites
* Their visitors can make it their web page their home page
* Their visitors can recommend their web page to their friends

Each of these web pages then start sending you subscribers as they use the "Share it With a Friend" feature

The result is that you end up with hundreds, maybe thousands of web sites that just keep sending you subscribers with no further input from you.

Here is the web site you can get it from: http://alibrown.mi3093.hop.clickbank.net

Over the weekend I just joined AGLOCO™ with their slogan ‘Own the Internet’, it is the newest thing on the Internet – an economic network similar to AllAdvantage from the late '90's
I joined for the following reasons:
  • There will be no complicated process to learn/teach. I will use the Internet just as I always have – and still make money, believe me I know I surf more than 5 hours/month
  • I'm well aware this is unlike to make me rich, but to add it to my bag of tricks seems a no-brainer - I like the idea of getting my share of the wealth being generated on the Internet (adding to my multiple streams of income)
  • The program is still in beta testing, however there is a possibility I might make a significant amount of money if this works (and I have nothing to lose if it doesn’t.)
  • I checked it out:
    • I must admit I had a bit of concern that it is still in beta, but what the heck, like I say above, I've really got nothing to lose and everything to gain.
    • AGLOCO™ Membership is free. Among the founders there are Stanford students and also the couple who launched AllAdvantage in 1999, which had millions of Members and paid out over $100 million to th
    • Best of all, there is nothing that the users can lose, because all new members do is – sign up, invite friends to join and use the internet normally.em. So it has a very good chance of working...
    • The company has real people – mostly Stanford graduate students who seem to be in the forefront these days.
    • They have great privacy – designed by the Internet’s first Chief Privacy Officer Ray Everett-Church.
    DO IT NOW – this is the key – in order to maximize your benefits you need to secure your position – please sign up now and introduce your friends and business associates I personally have received four emails introducing me to Agloco since it's launch just a few days ago.
    Here is a link for you to investigate Agloco to see if you feel it will benefit you http://www.agloco.com/r/BBBD0453 -
    NOTE: it took some time (almost 24 hours for my confirmation email to come through - so don't worry if it doesn't appear right away).
    Be sure to let me know if I can be of any help.

    This came to me in my email recently (thank you Jack), and
    I feel compelled to share it with you. Take a few minutes
    read it through entirely and you will understand why!

    Once upon a time there was a bunch of tiny frogs....
    who arranged a running competition.

    The goal was to reach the top of a very high tower.

    A big crowd had gathered around the tower to see
    the race and cheer on the contestants....

    The race began....


    No one in crowd really believed that the tiny frogs
    would reach the top of the tower.

    You heard statements such as:

    "Oh, WAY too difficult!!"

    "They will NEVER make it to the top."


    "Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!"

    The tiny frogs began collapsing. One by one....

    Except for those, who in a fresh tempo, were climbing higher
    and higher....

    The crowd continued to yell, "It is too difficult!!!
    No one will make it!"

    More tiny frogs got tired and gave up....

    But ONE continued higher and higher and higher....

    This one wouldn't give up!

    At the end everyone else had given up climbing the tower.
    Except for the one tiny frog who, after a big effort,
    was the only one who reached the top!

    THEN all of the other tiny frogs naturally wanted to know
    how this one frog managed to do it?

    A contestant asked the tiny frog how he had found
    the strength to succeed and reach the goal?

    It turned out....

    That the winner was DEAF!!!!

    Response Magic

    Once you have completed Step 1 (Quick Start) and Step 2 (Fast Start Traffic School), your next step is to get your autoresponders set up and populated with pre-written messages to prepare for your sign-ups.

    The first will be your Response Magic - I can't stress this enough - you NEED Response Magic, you can not jam out on this one - it is the heart of the system, it allows you to manage your "list". You will hear it many, many, many (did I say many) times that the "gold is in the list"

    Log into your "back office" at http://payitforward4profits.com/members, using the Username and Password you chose when you signed up as a PIF4P member.

    Go to the Marketing Tab and Click on the Link that says: Response Magic.

    The link will initially refer to signing up with Response Magic (once you have done so, the link changes to Log in to Response Magic) You will sign up for the Response Magic Home Edition.

    Note: You MUST do this through the members' area of PIF4P to receive our integrated version of this program. You will receive a alphanumeric ID that begins with "dch" and a rather bizzarre password that you will be able to edit once you are able to adjust your settings. (If your ID does NOT begin with "dch" - contact Response Magic immediately - they will ask you to go through the process again from the PIF4P members area and transfer the payment to the integrated account).

    You will now be able to login to Response Magic from the link under "Marketing".

    Your first order of business is to complete a profile.
    Click on "Settings" located on the menu bar
    Click on "Personal Settings" from the drop-down menu

    Complete the form with your personal information - this form holds the data that will be merged with your autoresponder messages when you download them - eg.

    Main Email Address: ~~ownersemail~~
    * First Name: ~~ownersfirstname~~
    * Last Name: ~~ownerslastname~~
    Phone#: ~~ownersphone~~
    Fax#: ~~ownersfax~~
    Address: ~~ownersaddress~~
    Address 2: ~~ownersaddress2~~
    City: ~~ownerscity~~
    State/Province: ~~ownersstate~~
    Zip/Postal Code: ~~ownerszip~~
    Time Zone:

    For Website: be sure to include only user name for Pay It Forward 4 Profits (the letters are formatted to complete the remainder of your URL. In the options part click box to enable hit tracking, that comes with the program. When all is entered click UPDATE SETTINGS.

    You will also have the option to change that bizzarre password at this point to something you will find easier to remember. There is an icon at the bottom of the page "change password".

    Next you will want to ensure your lists are available to import your messages.
    Click on Settings from the menu bar
    This time click on List Settings from the drop-down menu.

    You will need the following lists in the near future, if they are not ALL available you will need to add them. Lists must be in this order - they are in essence "hard-wired" to your websites so mixing them up is NOT an option.

    List 1- CFM Prospect Newsletter
    List 2- PIF4P
    List 3- 3STEP

    If All 3 are not listed click on Add a List, complete the field with the name of the missing list, then "ADD LIST"

    Complete the required fields (formatting is a bit wacky here but it will give you the general idea)

    FROM FIRST NAME: ~~ownersfirstname~~

    FROM LAST NAME: ~~ownerslastname~~

    FROM EMAIL: ~~ownersemail~~
    Be sure to UPDATE the information (you will notice the email clears itself when the screen rolls over - this is okay - you will receive an email requesting confirmation of this email address, once you have confirmed it, abra cadabra it becomes available when you return to this option)

    Now you are you ready to load up all the sales letters/copy into your new auto responder!

    You need to go back to the members area http://payitforward4profits.com/members
    Log in with your username and password.

    From the menu bar, choose MARKETING, then click on RESPONSE MAGIC.

    Choose the option to Click Here to Download Response Magic Emails.

    Copy PIF4P's Response Magic Emails

    Which List of Emails would you like to copy from?

    Select the List that you would like to copy these emails to.
    Here are the Lists in your Response Magic Account:

    WARNING: Copying these emails will override any existing emails
    you have created for the list you are copying to.
    You will lose these emails permanently!
    Please make sure that you do not have any existing emails
    that you would like to keep, in the List you are copying to.

    The "source" and "destination" should always match.

    Follow the same procedure for all three lists. Now your Auto Responder is fully loaded with messages.

    Now one last step - you want to ensure yourself the import was indeed successful (just for your own peace of mind).

    Go back to Response Magic Control Panel
    (Log in to http://payitforward4profits.com/members
    Choose "Marketing" -- "Response Magic" -- "Log in to Response Magic")

    In the middle of the screen you will see:

    CFM Prospect Newsletter List ID#: 1
    Opt Out

    Opt Outs
    Total does not include Opt Outs or Bounced Contacts
    Select a List to Manage Below

    Choose "Email Management"
    You will be able to manage your list of messages from this option
    Note: you will "Select a List to Manage Below" from the drop down menu in the middle of the screen to choose an alternate list - CFM Prospecting Newsletter is the default list, you will always need to make a selection from here, there is no way to reset the default to a different list.

    CANI - Constant and Neverending Improvement

    Well folks -- change is in the wind again! Again, you say! Yes, again!! If you haven't accepted the fact that we will be seeing changes on a regular basis, get over it! Give yourself a shake, pick yourself up and take a real serious attitude adjustment, NOW! Go for a walk if you must. Have a beer if you must. Do whatever it takes. The reality of it all is, we live, work (thrive, if you will) in an ever changing environment - the internet. Charles Darwin is quoted as saying: It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. So here goes ...

    Over the next few days you will start to notice some changes in the PayItForward4Profits members area.


    You will want to visit here more frequently than you have been in recent weeks. The changes are very exciting and will be of tremendous help to our new members as they go through those initial days - we all remember those!

    You will want to direct your new members to go through the "red buttons" (this is where the major changes are going to take place".) These will get them through the "Quick Start" call, the "Fast Start Traffic School" and help them get set up with those initial tools that will get them going quickly so they can see results for their activities.

    From there they will move on to the Advanced Marketing Guide (aka Success Guide).

    Included with these changes with be links for Direct Matches and AdlandPro - both good networking sites. If you haven't done so already, you want to get yourself set up with these as soon as possible. Both are free to join, you can get in there, get your feet wet and do some serious networking. I use both and find them to be excellent resources for marketers looking for tools to strengthen their businesses. If you are needing some direction regarding their use, either pop into "Fast Start Traffic School" (also available in the recorded training), or give me a call.

    Until next time ... happy promotion!
