It’s Time To Release Your Inner Capitalist

Read This Later - Click Here

For the last week I’ve been back clicking in the safelists as I wanted to show that I still have what it takes to be considered the Best Safelist Marketer.

Now the reason I’m doing this is due to the fact Jon Olson doesn’t believe he deserves the lead he currently has in that poll, and also he released figures for Rocket Responder which showed that a terrible zero percent conversion with the mailer traffic.

So having spent at least an hour a day for the last week clicking I think the reason behind the failure is that 99.9% of what is being advertised is crap that is aimed at keeping people in the poor house and creating a culture of entitlement where it’s acceptable to just keep on promoting the same old crap and trying to build downlines.

The purpose of this post is to try and make people wake up and smell the coffee, and improve the overall quality of what people are advertising or the whole industry will self implode like it nearly did when automated inbox cleaners were all the rage.

Here is how capitalism can save the world of Safelist Marketing.

#1 You have to actually understand that in order to make money you have to create something of value to others.

#2 Give so much value that people will buy something via your affiliate link.

#3 Buy traffic at a lower cost than what you make from #2

#4 Rinse & Repeat

Your Plan Of Action For Today

The initial capital investment for #1 is Landing Page Monkey and Rocket Responder coupled with enough knowledge to create a 5 part email follow-up series on something related to the niche of traffic generation, affiliate marketing, multi level marketing recruitment, or anything else you think will appeal to an average safelist user.

#2 Requires you to identify the evergreen products in your chosen niche that will be just as important next year as they will be today. For example as I created a 5 part series on “How To Build Your List Using Safelists” then it should be pretty obvious that a service such as Rocket Responder is going to be something that I can sell.

I also have the chance to sell them my services on fiverr and even if I just get them to come and read a few blog posts or follow me on social media the chances of selling something is much much higher.

#3 Based on my tracking I’ve found promoting a splash page generated an impressive click through rate, but zero results. On changing to a squeezepage the action rate fell off dramatically, but the people who take action are generating income streams because I’ve given enough value and am willing to help / encourage them to get started listbuilding.

#4 Once the initial capital investment is recouped and residual income streams come online I will be back in a position again where I can start to upgrade / buy credits and potentially even have enough to employ someone to run the system for me.

Can You See The Trees In The Wood Now?

I appreciate that not everyone will agree with this, but if you want to waste your time promoting new launches and the next must join networking marketing matrix opportunity that requires an initial one off investment that will magically become the thousands and be hand delivered by unicorn.

Look forward to your comments.

    You not only knocked it out of the park, you put a flat spot on the ball… That is the post of the year so far.

    That is so spot on in so many ways, it is just terrific!

    Thanks Andrew. I needed that…

      Thanks Tom,

      If you didn’t keep calling me a capitalist I wouldn’t have written this. It’s funny how the world becomes so small when you actually connect with the right people who will push you to do things that improve yourself.

    A very educational post. I truly hope to do better at applying the things you spoke about.

      Hi John,

      When I was clicking at the safelists your page was doing exactly what it should be doing. It was standing out, so I’ve now joined your list, and look forward to seeing what you will be recommending to me.

    Thanks Andrew. That’s a great action plan, should get people off the Launch Bandwagon and digging down into an area that can do them some good. Promoting a linking evergreen product just makes so much sense.

      Hi Nick,

      Like you said on John’s Lucky13 blogpost I do think that too many people in the TE / Mailer niche reward failure and hate those who are prepared to take risks and spend money. It’s amazing how selling seems to be a dirty word, and people get behind sites which have terrible copywriting and are doomed to failure from the very start. Keep on getting people into evergreen’s through listbuilding and good things will happen.

    Great Post Andrew! People need to make better ads for sure and promote evergreen products. And may I also recommend Adkreator for making squeeze pages. It is simple and to the point for making great capture pages. Adkreator is also an everygreen product. 🙂

      Hi Barb,

      I think that AdKreator is great for splash pages, as it tracks everything perfectly with TRCK.me, and I will also recommend it to people who don’t have hosting. The key thing is to get people being unique and actually thinking about what they promote.
