How I Built A List Of Over 1 Million Subscribers

August 1st, 2015

williecrawford3

First of all, I need to clarify that I don’t have
just ONE list. I’ve been steadily building lists in
multiple niches since 1996.

My largest list is actually in the cooking niche. I
wrote a cookbook in 2000, and that has earned me
six-figures per year EVERY year since then. I plan
on hosting a Google Hangout where I tell you exactly
how I did that soon.

I’m also in the personal development niche.

I’m also in the pets niche… an $80 BILLION niche :-)

I’m also in the martial arts niche. I first started
studying karate in 1978, and have practiced regularly
since then… and hold several black belts.

Many people think of me as an “internet marketer” but
that’s actually the niche that I focus the LEAST on
lately.

Anyway, I did an interview not too long ago where I shared
HOW I built a database of over 1 million subscribers.

Today, that number hovers closer to 2 million, but I focused
more on quality than quantity.

really monetize a list…. The report is less than $5 :-)

Ever hear the line about affiliate earnings being the easiest way
to get started online?

What a crock! What these people aren’t telling you is that in
order to make solid commissions, you’ve got to have a list.

There’s no way you can take out 1 FB ad, post an affiliate offer,
and hope to make a profit. Sorry to burst your bubble.

But with a list? You don’t have to pay a DIME for traffic and can
be making commissions 24/7, even while you sleep…

Network Marketing Or Internet Marketing?

July 28th, 2015

I was recently asked if I recommended that someone get involved
in network marketing or if internet marketing was better.

My honest, heart-felt answer is that it should depend upon which
best serves your customers needs.

I started in internet marketing in 1996… almost 20 years ago,
and have done well with that.

I also was shown numerous network marketing businesses over the
years.

Back in 2004, Jack Bastide showed me a company that sell gifts
and physical greeting cards over the internet. I didn’t take a
look until Jack reached out to me several times.

Now, over 11 years later, I’m still with Send Out Cards… and I
believe in both the product and the company.

Yes, I’ve been with the same company for all that time although
at one time I wasn’t paying attention and allowed the debit card
associated with my account to expire. When I caught the screw up
(on my part) I fixed that, and went back to building my
SendOutCards business.

Today, I’m more focused on building the MLM business than I am
the internet marketing business, even though I make more from
internet marketing. I’ve created over 150 products in the IM
space, but again, I see, embrace, and believe in the the MLM
model.

A Smarter, More-Effective Way To Market To Your List

July 27th, 2015

When I first started publishing an ezine, nearly 20 years
ago, marketing was done VERY differently than many
email marketers do it today.

Back then, we had “rules of thumb” such as that most
issues of your ezines wasn’t just a solo mailing.
Instead, you might send out 1 promotional email for
every 3-5 information-packed issues that you published.

Today, many email marketers ONLY send solo mailings.
Every email is yelling and screaming about a product
launch.

What that usually does is cause your subscribers to
soon stop opening your emails, and eventually clicking
on the unsubscribe link.

A smarter way to promote many products is to use
Facebook advertising, combined with custom audiences,
and retargeting.

When a person joins your list via a squeeze page, they
also indicated to you what they are interested in and
likely to buy… especially if your squeeze page focused
on a VERY specific topic.

Why not retarget those subscribers using retargeting
pixels and/or upload your database from a specific
autoresponder as a custom audience on Facebook.

Then, you can run Facebook ads where you show specific
products to those who have already told you that they
are interested in that product.

I’ve found this to be very cost-effective, and it
builds great subscriber loyalty. Since you can now
focus on delivering value to your subscribers, you grow
the “know-like-trust” factor. Then, when you do send
out that solo mailing from time to time, you get much
higher open and click-through rates… and make more
sales!

You are still “promoting” products and services to your
list… but when it’s as Facebook ads, it’s not as
intrusive, since your subscribers are already accustomed
to seeing ads on Facebook.

As with most things, this does take some testing, tweaking,
and tracking, but it works beautifully for me :-)

Using this approach, you can focus more on growing what is
often an online marketer’s most valuable asset… your list.

If you use “churn and burn” marketing, your list growth will
most-likely eventually stall. Using this kinder, gentler
approach that is not going to happen!

In-case you don’t have a list yet, or haven’t really focused
on list-building, you should. In fact, check out this
training by my friend Paul Myers. He’s been list-building
and marketing very effectively for about as long as I have.

Paul shares 162 ways (give or take) to get subscribers, attract
affiliates, build your network, and generally get the attention
of as many people in your market as you want.

Check it out: http://williecrawford.com/162/

Also give some thought to what I just suggested to you as
far as how you market. As you do, ask yourself which style
of marketing YOU personally respond more positively to.

Instagram, Money, Speed, and Social Media Engagement

July 27th, 2015

Many of us look for ways to make money online, and many of us ask
how we can do that via social media.

The thing is that social media often changes so fast that by the
time MOST of us notice a trend, it’s too late :-)

Many of us who hang out on Facebook, eventually noticed the
Facebook tends to show posts that get a lot of “engagement” more
often… or to a greater percentage of our “Friends.”

FB does have an algorithm, and that does factor in heavily. How
many likes, share, and comments a particular post gets DOES
count.

Partly because we are so visual, posts with thought provoking
images and videos DO generally get more engagement.

This is one of the reasons Instagram is growing so fast…
something that Facebook noticed back in April of 2012 when they
decided to pay 1 BILLION dollars for Instagram.

Us marketers also took notice but had difficulty figuring out how
to monetize that.

Fast-forward to today, and I’ve gone through THREE courses on how
to tap into Instagram in the past 10 day! I’m a speed reader,
with a high rate of retention :-)

The things is… I’m NOT an early adapter So, by the time I got
around to really noticing, and starting to USE Instagram, as
taught in the courses, things were already changing.

Many of us marketers gravitated to Instagram because we could
redirect traffic to our websites, lists, projects, etc., and not
have to pay for that “advertising.”

HOW’EVA, by the time the crowd gets around to noticing, things
have already started to change.

Instagram recently announced that they were going to start
offering/selling more advertising this fall.

That could signal the impending phenomenon that many marketers
witnessed on Facebook… basically, if you want any real reach…
Facebook forces you to use PAID advertising.

There are those who can get lots of FB traffic without using paid
advertising, but I submit that MOST marketers struggle with this.

What does all this mean to you today? It means that if you want
to tap into the Instagram gold rush before it’s largely
pay-to-play you need to move fast.

It means that if you’ve been working on an Instagram course for
the past 6 months… but haven’t released it yet… because
you’re too much of a perfectionist, then you don’t understand
“speed to market” and similar concepts.

It means that you probably DO need to pay attention to Instagram
now, but you also need to be watching for where things are
heading, since you want to spot trends and get in front of them
instead of running behind the pack.

It’s a fun game to play, but more fun when you out front :-)

Secrets Of “The Guru Maker!”

July 26th, 2015

I went for an EARLY-morning walk today, and as I did, I reflected
upon the numerous internet marketing “gurus” that I’ve influenced
over the years.

I CAN’T take credit for the success of ANY of them, because THEY
had to have what it took that inevitably made them successes, but
I DID touch them in their formative years.

So, as I walked along, running some of today’s biggest names
through my mind, I smiled.

Let me share with you the “gurus” that I’ve “touched” over the
years… maybe in an effort to stroke my own ego.

I started my own IM business in 1996, but was largely a “lone
wolf” until December of 2002, when I spoke at my first seminar.
That’s when I first began to appreciate the power of joint
ventures and working with others.

In-case you don’t realize it, wolves hunt in packs. “Lone wolves
and generally unsuccessful hunters… and often STARVE!”

That’s not to say that I view my customers and prospects as prey.
Quite the opposite… I embrace Jay Abraham’s “Strategy Of
Preeminence” which largely teaches that you treat your clients
and customers as you would your children… whom you deep down
inside only want THE BEST for!

Anyway…

At the very first seminar that I attended… and also spoke at, I
met Ramon Williamson, Marty Foley, Fred Gleeck, Carl Galletti,
Lori Prokop, Dr. Bob Silber, Armand Morin, Johnathan Levi Mizel,
and Frank Garon.

I later went on to joint venture or work with ALL of the speakers
except ONE :-)

FOUR MONTHS after attending my first live event, I hosted my own
seminar… in Pensacola, Florida. This event featured many of the
speakers from the first event that I attended, plus a new
“upstart” Stephen Pierce. I believe this was the first event
that he ever spoke at.

A year later, I hosted my second seminar… on Okaloosa Island,
Florida. At that event, one of my speakers was Ken McArthur… of
JV Alert fame,and now host of The Impact Event. This was the
FIRST IM event that Ken ever spoke at, but he went on to host his
own seminars for 10 years!

Somewhere in there, I met David Perdew, founder of NAMS. David
and I eventually became accountability partners… and in the
early days I promoted NAMS heavily and attended practically EVERY
event that he hosted… speaking/teaching at most.

At that first event that I attended/spoke at I met TWO notable
individuals:

1) John Reese… the first “internet marketer” to make $1 million
in sales in a single day. John actually did this is 18 hours…
BUT the real secret is that he had spent several YEARS making
connections by attending live events… so by the time he did his
launch, all that he really needed to do was reach out to friends
that he had made over the years and ask them to promote his
TOTALLY TOP QUALITY PRODUCT… and we did.

John was an attendee at the first event that I hosted, and wowed
the attendees any time that he said anything… as we took
questions and comments from the audience!

2) Ryan Deiss…one of the most successful IM’ers that I know.
Ryan was probably not even 20 at the time. He sat at his table
taking copious notes! Most importantly, Ryan took MASSIVE
action… and that along with getting proper mentorship made ALL
the difference.

I was at one time a moderator on the largest IM discussion
forum… The Warrior Forum. I did that for almost 5 years.
During those 5 years, one of the people who reached out to me was
a “car salesman” named Mike Filsaime.

When Mike was ready to launch his “Butterfly Marketing”course, he
reached out to me via ICQ and asked me to look things over… the
night before he launched. Today, I’m sure that Mike makes
MILLIONS each year.

I used Mike’s Butterfly Marketing course… and scripts to launch
my first firesale… which made six-figures, and paid for my
youngest daughter’s wedding… and taught me the power of both
fire sales, AND joint ventures.

At one time, I promoted a lot of Frank Kern’s products… and
even hung out with him at a Hollywood party… at The Playboy
Mansion… We were both accompanied by our wives :-)

I first met Jeff Walker, of Product Launch Formula fame, at a
Master List-Builder workshop, hosted by Joel Christopher. Jeff
shared that his wife gave him a hard time for spending money to
attend that event… money that they couldn’t really afford to
spend.

Several years later, Jeff rolled out PLF, and I made enough sales
to be invited to attend a mastermind meeting in Las Vegas,
attended by his TOP affiliates. I made a lot of connections at
that meeting.

Going back to Joel’s seminar… that’s where I first met a LOT of
today’s top online marketers… with one of my VERY FAVORITES
being Rhea Perry. Rhea is a home-schooling mom whose tribe is
mostly parents who believe in teach their kids to be
entrepreneurs. Rhea’s son use to buy and sell HOUSES on Ebay!

Rhea INSPIRES me. So do many of the thousands of others whom
I’ve met over the past 19+ years… and learned from… and often
had the honor of influencing.

As I said earlier, I can’t take credit for any of their
successes. At the same time, when you examine the many that I
have touched, I think that you’ll agree that I can legitimately
call myself “The Guru Maker,” and I just may start doing that.

Thanks for listening to “an old man’s reminiscing,” and for the
opportunity to tell you a little more about myself :-)

Instagram WILL Begin Selling Ads THIS FALL Making Now The Time To Make Your Move

July 24th, 2015

Jim Squires, the director of marketing operations at Instagram has
announced in an interview that paid ads will be available to all
this fall:

To quote him…

“We’ve spent the last 18 months establishing the platform for large
brands. The next logical step is to empower businesses of all sizes.
Being able to target narrower segments and achieve different types
of objectives is essential. We want to offer a complete solution that
allows businesses to purchase through self-serve interfaces and
achieve the objectives they want to achieve.

We’re testing the action-oriented formats and buying through the API
now, and we will be doing that through the summer with select
partners and clients. Then we’ll be opening up globally and to all
advertisers in the early fall timeframe.”

Here’s how to take advantage of what is now essentially a free for
all situation when it comes to advertising on Instagram:
