Can You Build an Email List….Just Using Articles on Your Blog?

Cararta and Andrew

Cararta and Andrew

Still working on building an email list….

Know I need one, Think I want one,
but have a feeling of dread at writing emails, emails email ……

Don’t mind writing articles, even comments aren’t bad…
but emails……………….hard time connecting

I know, I’ll just copy Robert Plank’s  emails to me….
put them in a file and do a little editing
or since I would like to do a little affiliate marketing and have some
great products like Back up Creator…That Paper Plate Theme thing …even PodCast
Crusher  I’m sure there is an email left over in my overflowing box…

What is Facebook Doing to Emails as a Sales Vehicle?

But talking about emails and how all these social things..may or may not affect emails……..google plus did something
strange…I have this site about Diabetes…went into the valley lately..
a friend said he finally found me on page 43 if searching for sugar control  like (just type it in an look)

Well, I did a proxy search tonight….guess who is on page 1 number 1 for
a post I did on my site August, 2012 and left a Facebook comment somewhere about it
that G+ picked up and decided it liked…even if old….
and no SEO in title but did make it into the first sentence….

Sugar Control Diet Facebook Number One for a Day

Sugar Control Diet Facebook Number One for a Day


“Some foods strange to the regular American diet are recommended in this diet cookbook and blood sugar control plan! “

Plus Andrew (my Orange and White buddy) and I are sitting there taking it all in….

Does a Picture help With Rankings on Google + or Google?

Almost every results on that page had a picture…My picture was my gravatar guess a picture is a picture.

Maybe we need to develop a different POV….there are always new people
coming into the internet…getting interested in Marketing and Blogging so maybe their
email boxes aren’t overflowing ….yet.

About any of this, there is one thing that is a MUST…
be consistent..

  • posting,
  • commenting,
  • sending your emails

If nothing else make yourself a schedule like my Grandma did:

Monday washing (laundry)
Tuesday Ironing (pillow cases first so can make up the beds)
(takes a long time when you heat the irons on a wood burning stove) .
Wednesday go to church
Thursday churn the butter
Friday weed the garden (her domain-the men did the big cotton & corn fields)
Saturday Bathe all the children…8 grandchildren she took care of including me!
Sunday Church and Sunday Dinner (at home)

In addition to the above she had a few jobs that were done daily:

milk Bessie and the heifer…(delegated to me & my cousin Ralph)

Cook for 8 children & 3 to 5 adults….add 4 more adults on the weekend (parents of the 8 children …home from jobs in town at the “Mill”)
Breakfast:
Ham, Bacon, Sausage, Biscuits,milk gravy and grits & eggs. Fruit…canned or fresh
pack lunches for the men to take to the fields along with quart jars of “Sweet Tea”

Lunch for kids usually breakfast left overs, even cornbread and milk

Dinner: Smoked ham or pork from the smoke house, vegetables..fresh or her own canned from the garden. Cornbread and biscuits…

No electricity, no refrigeration except for “spring house” to keep milk and butter.
At night all leftovers were fed to the pigs…called Slopping the hogs...along with
un shelled ears of corn…..pea shells..

Oh yeah,

feed the chickens and gather the eggs every day…and lock them in the hen house at night….anything that moves likes to eat chickens..hawks, foxes, possums, raccoons, mink and wild cats (baby sized mountain lions never saw one, but Grandpa said they are there and you would hear them talking to the world at night).

A few other little jobs added in…sweep, mop, make lye soap to do laundry, dishes
and even wash the floors….make up all those beds, clean out the fireplace,
clean out the wood burning kitchen stove (save the ashes for making soap)

Delegating and outsourcing she knew….

The boys brought buckets of water up from the spring down in the “holler” to
fill up the reservoir in the stove (hot water to dish washing),
Water for the chickens, pigs, mules, horses and fill up the water can on the back porch,

Girls…do dishes or help by drying and putting away..wipe down the stove with
Lard to make it shine….clean the lamp shades (kerosene and they smoked) help with the chickens and churning the butter.  On wash day bat the clothes, run the wringer, help hang up the clothes to dry.

Entrepreneur before the word was invented:

Traded extra eggs for some butter from a neighbor..she liked her mold with
flower pictures on the butter….ours was just round and plain!

Traded cured ham for beef roast with another neighbor.

She didn’t write it down…just got up every day and Did It.

She was as methodical and organized as Robert any day of the week.

Hmmm….and here I am ‘ whining about writing a few emails.

Really wish I was
my Grandmothers Daughter like my younger sister is…

Up early and go from dawn to dusk without stopping.

Hi Cararta,

Really nice rant . . . uuuh article.

But I don’t get it?

If you can write like you just showed us you already have the key to reader engagement, and emails.

Just add a few curiosity triggers, some questions for them to ask themselves and maybe respond to you with and divide your articles up into 2 or 3 parts hook a few together,

add some points about your product or an affiliate product (with a link in SOME of your mails) related to the area your list is in

and before you know it you have an email sequence built.

Load those into your autoresponder a day or 2 apart from each other and

vola, you have folks opening your mails right and left because they want to hear what you are saying.

That builds your credibility and helps spur folks on to open your mails and links that are inside.

Keep me posted how you progress
warmly
David

In case you thought I’ve lost it.  All of the above was a comment I left on Robert Planks Blog

and a response from  a Very Nice David Whitfield.

On an article titled:

The Worst Kept Secret of Internet Marketing: Email Every Day, Sell Every Day,

Make Money Every Day

which I was reading to get some ideas and inspiration to build an email list.

So if I want an email list to worry about sending emails to, I’ve decided to write about my thought process, lack of action (that comment was in June, 2013!), can’t say I don’t take my time!

AND  what I have been doing to make some progress.  I have two processes that I am using,

so if you want a click through, either check out that text link right below the header on this page or zip over to

Cararta.com  where things are nice and neat and easy.

Question.  Do you have something that you work on, almost finish and then Hit the Big Road Block

and it is still sitting there?

I could have started this months ago, but I just couldn’t make myself create a folder on my site to upload my Gimmie  (that’s a give away for the non slangers)  into.

I think the mental exertion to make the decision and do it was much more stressful that the actual doing!

How about you?  Still wrestling in your head?

Review: How to Get over 850,000 Visitors Per Month to your Website

How to Get Visitors to your Website  is something you should know before you set up a site

Knowing how to get visitors and generate traffic to your website is always the first thing you should

think about when setting up a blog or website, because if you don’t have traffic, why bother!

Since I am in the same bucket as most of the people I talk to on Facebook,

Twitter (short conversations) and groups I belong to on Facebook and Blogs where

I “hang out” , we share the same problem that affects us all:  A source of

continuous returning traffic.   Not enough traffic…no money…not even adsense!

As part of my solution of this common problem: “How to Generate Website

Traffic” I decided to do some research.  Since I have a great program (You can

look at it by clicking here) for the basics that needs to be done to generate

website traffic I wanted something more.

I have a program that will search for YouTube videos using whatever keyword

or words that are input.  After I got the results, I filtered them by likes and number

of comments because I wanted results that people liked and talked about.

I hit the Jackpot with the first video I chose to look at:  How to Get over 850,000

Visitors Per Month to Your Website. 

The video made me think of my Friend Sergio  who runs one of my favorite

hangouts  Marketing with Sergio  and one of his very first videos.

Don’t know why these guys think they have to mount a camera in the car and talk

to you while driving down the road.  Guess it’s a “guy” thing, but I really think I

saw a similar video series by a well know “Guru” so I’m thinking it is copy-cat.

Who, What, When and Where!

Back to the Jackpot Video.  Kyle Graham creator of Ambidupdate.com met up

with David Risley head honcho at PCmech.com for an outdoor interview.  Not

recommended in Tampa, Florida  where the Gulf breeze blows like a mini

hurricane any time it wants to.

Standing outside of Chilis after lunch, Kyle asked David the Jack Pot Question:  “We

want to know how you get 850,000 visitors a month to PCmech?” 

Answer:  David didn’t hesitate, he said, “We probably post at least 3 times a day.

My partner and I post 3 to 4 times a day and the second thing we do is give away

good quality information.  Free….giveaway….quality   all extremely important

words.  People will come back if they can find a lot of things they need on one

site.”

Next question:  Why does your site rank so well with Google?

Answer:  “It is a WordPress Blog and blogs are search engine friendly to begin

with, plus when we do articles we try to include our keywords in the article title

and the subject line and in the blog post body.  So, when someone searches

Google, we get found.  If we get found, many return.  Also we do have opinions

and sometimes people disagree with us.  After all, it is a blog, so a little

controversy once in awhile doesn’t hurt.”

Dave also expounded, “Every article or post asks them to subscribe to Rss feed

or email newsletter.”

There was a brief after the interview p.s.  that included a reference to using

Facebook, Twitter and Youtube.   Kyle concluded that regular posting of helpful

quality information has to be the base for whatever you are doing to get traffic to

your site.

I have posted the video below to save you the trouble.  Be sure to take notes, there is

some good information that I haven’t included here.

Generate Website Traffic

If you’re an online marketer, you always need to

generate consistent traffic to your site on a

daily basis.

Once visitors arrive at your site, hopefully a certain  percentage of them will  become your subscribers or leads.

This is called constant lead generation, and every successful business always have some kind of lead generation system in place.

The question is, do you have a Lead generation system in place?

If you don’t have a lead generation system,  you need to have one if you want your business to be successful.  Ask any marketer who is successful in making money on the internet and if he is honest his first words will be, “You need to build a list from the first day you set your site up ready for visitors.”

If you already have a lead generation system then you  could always improve on your current  system.

(Hey, you can’t really get too much traffic, can  you?)

There is a  viral marketing software that is now available to install rather like a WordPress Plugin but with an endless list of options like walking you through creating  a squeeze page,  a download page for your gift for opting in and provides security so each person must sign up to receive their gift.  No more sharing the download code!  Click below if you are in a hurry….very nice video and a whole page of options for using this system!

Here is where you can find out more, just click and Go!

This software automates your viral campaigns so that you get traffic day in and day out.  However, I want to stress that this is NOT a magic, push-button solution. Push-button solutions do not exist.

You still need to set it up the first time.

But,  with this software in your hands, generating new visitors to your site will become a semi-autopilot process and will make your life so much easier.

Go read more about this premium lead generation system and how it  brings  in yet more traffic to your site.

READ MORE.

To Your Success,
Cararta

PS. You do know that push-button magic solutions do not exist right?   Stop living in fantasy land, wake up to reality, and start doing things “smartly” from now on…

You get what you work for and nothing more.  No Magic, just do what you need to Do.

Paul Ponna Commission Auto Is! Automatic Money

Got an email from Paul Ponna several days ago.  Read it and Purchased the software after clicking and  watching the sales video. 

 I down loaded Commission Auto  and was working with it in just a few minutes after I finished watching the instructional videos……  Doing  what it says to do.   I found out it is EASY to work with.

I watched the videos and took a few notes.   I take notes cause seem to have acquired a memory problem. 

I wanted traffic to a website.  I know how much I don’t get so I will report back in a few days and let you know what results I am getting! 

Then I got another email from Paul Ponna and it seems there is a special Launch price for  this software …

 

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

 

You get it for less, plus there is a live webinar for training.    So go check it out.   Just make sure you enter a good email address, because you will need it to get your download notification and key to activate the software, download the software and get an  invitation to the webinar where they explain how to use Commission Auto and exactly what it can do for you. 

I do  know you don’t even need a website to use it and make money. 

You can insert your affiliate links for products into the software before processing and when it processes your content, disbributes it and when someone clicks on your link, it is just as if they were on your website or clicked a link on a banner ad or a link in an email.

 

 

 

Here is a link to download the software and sign up for the  webinar.  You don’t want to miss!  

  CLICK HERE!

JUST THINK, NO MORE GOOGLE, NO MORE FACEBOOK, NO YOUTUBE, NO PPC

just money!
