How To Build Your Mailing List

In my last post, I showed you how to make money online using prepop offers and Aweber. I got some great responses from the post so I figured I’ll show you another prepop trick you can do with Aweber. The nice thing about this trick is it will work for a brand new blogger who has just started his mailing list.

Pre-popping The Thank You Page

When someone subscribes to your blog they are sent to a thank you page asking to them check their email and confirm their subscription. Aweber offers some nice pre-made thank you pages, including a really cool Smart Video Thank You page.

The trick here is to use a custom thank you page and send the reader to a new page with your thank you note and a prepop affiliate offer. To do this in Aweber, log into your account and click the Web Forms tab. Select one of the sign up forms and go to basic settings. You’ll see a Thank You page drop down menu. Choose custom page and enter the URL to the new thank you page.

Custom Thank You Page

In the above example, I’ve send the thank you note to a custom page on Shoemoney System but you can send it to any pre-poppable offer. The sequence will go like this:

  1. Reader enters his information into the subscribe box on your blog.
  2. Instead of getting a generic thank you page asking him to confirm, he is sent to a new page with a prepop offer.
  3. If the reader clicks submit on the prepop page, you make money.
  4. Reader checks his email for the confirmations.
  5. You’ve got a new subscriber and you’ve made money on it.

In my case, a reader would subscribe to my blog by entering his name and email address either at the email sign up box at the top of this blog or from the Lightbox Hover sign box that fade in on first time visitors. Once he enter his information and click submit, he would be sent to this custom confirmation page.

Aweber will automatically take the information entered from my original sign up box and append them to the custom landing page. Everything will be filled in. The only thing the reader has to do is hit “GO!” and he’s done.

Depending on how targeted the prepop offer is, you can expect up to 50% of new subscribers opting into the prepop offer. With prepop offers paying up to $2 per lead, you could be making up to $1 for every new subscriber you get to your blog. Not only are you building a mailing list for your blog but you’re making money while doing it!

Start Your Email Marketing List For Only $1.00

Aweber offers a $1 trial account for all new customers. The account is just like a normal Aweber account and includes unlimited email campaigns, newsletter, broadcasts and follow ups. Using the above method of sending new subscribers to a prepop offer as the thank you page, there is no possible way for you to not make the $1 back. You’ll be building your list and you’ll be making money on it as well. You can’t get a much better deal than that!

If for some amazing reason, you can’t make $1 doing this, then email marketing (and making money on the Internet) is clearly not for you. Send Aweber an email and they’ll give the $1 back.
