Affiliate Funnel’s Saturday Conference continues to be my #1 resource for learning how and where to market online, so whenever humanly possible I just do not miss it. Friday, during TE Live, Jerry Iannucci mentioned that he would be speaking at Saturday’s AF Conference, the topic being Safelists. This was right up my alley because (like many of you I’m sure) I have tried to use safelists many times with little to no success. Now Jerry is the man when it comes to safelists, so I knew there was no way I could walk away from that conference and not know how to use safelists properly… and I was right!
This post is a couple of days overdue, but for good reason! I wanted to put some of the things I learned from Jerry into practice, test them out, then share how successful or unsuccessful those attempts were for me. Affiliate Funnel usually has some sort of prize giveaway, trivia type of deal and this Saturday… I won! The prize??? An upgrade to Jerry Iannucci’s Safelist Marketing Tactics woot! Now this is a site I joined a long time ago, had already been jaded a bit by my attempts to market in safelists, and never even downloaded the book…. dumb right? Yes! But the upgrade and the knowledge I gained from Jerry in the seminar gave me new inspiration to try my hand once again in safelists… and I’m so glad I did!
One thing I learned… I’m going about marketing in safelists ALL wrong. Normally, I’d copy and paste an email ad from whatever program was launching, including the headline they provide, send it off into the world and be angry when I get absolutely no signups. A) In no way am I promoting myself or building my own list, B) everyone else is coping and pasting those same emails and sending them off on launch day just like me. How did I ever expect to get great results?
I also took the time to read Jerry’s Safelist Marketing Tactics ebook cover to cover. Wow.. is all I can say. I learned SO much, and Jerry really explains it in the simplest way possible. He even covers how to use filters in your email client to organize the safelist emails, how to track your results, how to tweak your ads…. I mean everything! So my Sunday was spent getting myself organized… *gasp* organization is not my strong suit for sure! But it was so easy, and now I’m all organized and ready to go. If Jerry can get me organized, he can get anyone organized, so a huge thank you to Jerry Iannucci!
I’m so excited about everything I learned from this book, that I uploaded it to my own server so that you can grab a copy of it below, for free, no signup required… just click and download. Grab the book, and please do yourself a favor, don’t do what I did…. leave it on your computer unread for 6 months.
What’s even cooler about this whole deal… Affiliate Funnel is creating a new splash page to rotate that shows the winner (me) and what I won/who gave it away (Jerry, Safelist Marketing Tactics)! So I we get promoted directly at Affiliate Funnel, me just for winning and him for giving away a prize. How much cooler does free advertising get!
Be sure to grab Jerry’s book, read it, and I can promise you… you’ll be ready to give safelist marketing another try. I’m psyched and can’t wait to share my improved results here in a later blog post.
