saying up to the mark would be a small word for you. Whatever you share gives a lot of quality to our knowledge. Its a wonderful list. Right now i am working on the 17 untapped backlink techniques, will start working on it once i am done with it.
Once you have the amazing content, the next step is to ask for emails. People who adore your content will be primed to receive that content as often as you can create it, delivered straight to their inbox. It’s up to you to make sure they find your call-to-action (or, in this case, a call-to-subscribe). Make it obvious. Make it crystal clear.
If you want to just sell your item, selling it at a pawnshops can be a very easy way to make money. However, be warned that you will usually get less money than selling it yourself to a private buyer using a method discussed above. The fees and charges on any loan can also be quite high so this should really be a last resort if you really require the money fast.
Platforms like LinkedIn get successful by charging for advertising and premium accounts. They are able to make money this way only if their sites have high engagement, often in the form of free users. Exactly the same thing happened with Facebook, so you should hop on while it lasts.
It’s essential that you fill in your profile fully to get the maximum number of surveys. You also have to be very careful with your answers as they have quality checks in place to make sure you aren’t cheating or rushing through.
Hey Matt! Thanks for this article, it was super helpful! I tried to scroll through some of the comments, but figured I should just shoot you a message. There weren’t a ton of B2C examples in your list and was hoping you had some more up your sleeve. I just launched my company, Make It Hapin, and I’m living on a prayer haha. My finances are limited so my ability to pay for ads in order to test possible funnels is very limited but I’m trying. Make It Hapin is a personalized shopping service designed to help you recreate inspiration images you see on Pinterest and Instagram. The struggle is figuring out a way to get people to remember us while they’re swiping through their feeds. Anyway, I’ve included my website…I’d love it if you could take a look!
“As a photographer and a mother, it’s so important for me to have that extra time that I save using ActiveCampaign because I can focus more on my art and I can focus more on building relationships with the clients versus the tedious mundane things that so much time didn’t need to be spent on.”
Now you may think, “well, he certainly must be biased”. I am, but only in the fairest possible since. I spend $30K-$50K per month in Facebook ads that ALL lead to my sales funnels that I’ve built with Clickfunnels…
The domain name part of an email address has to conform to strict guidelines: it must match the requirements for a hostname, a list of dot-separated DNS labels, each label being limited to a length of 63 characters and consisting of::§2
Directors for TV and film are always on the hunt for houses to film in. For instance, a scene for Coronation Street was recently filmed in the student house one of the Save the Student editors used to live in!
Lead nurturing by email isn’t the only method you can use to get more out of site traffic. You can also use retargeting systems such as AdRoll to display ads for your business on popular websites to people who have already visited your website, signed up to your database or made a purchase. Tailor your messaging depending on where they are in the sales funnel.

Like anything, though, this tactic bears testing. In addition to our popover signup form, we’ve also been experimenting with a signup form in our HelloBar (the orange bar at the top of the site). Here are the two different versions, along with the stats so far:
Throughout the day, you and your employees probably interact with many customers and prospects on the phone. Before you hang up, always ask if they would like to join your email list. Give them a brief statement of the benefits of enrolling — for example, exclusive offers and discounts only available to email subscribers.
Addresses of this form, using various separators between the base name and the tag, are supported by several email services, including Runbox (plus), Gmail (plus), Yahoo! Mail Plus (hyphen), Apple’s iCloud (plus), Outlook.com (plus), ProtonMail (plus), FastMail (plus and Subdomain Addressing), MMDF (equals), Qmail and Courier Mail Server (hyphen). Postfix allows configuring an arbitrary separator from the legal character set.
After comparing key metrics like open rates and unsubscribes, you’ll be able to have an idea of which email performed better. Once you do, you can email the second 1⁄2 of your list with the “winning” email.
Time of Day Timing is heavily dependent on location, industry, and the type of subscribers who are on your list—there is no ‘right’ answer for which hour of the day is best—but you can come close by testing it via your broadcasts!
Brian… great post… again! I’ve had a look at sumome – looks like a winner – and free??!! Nice. Can you use it with any autoresponder? The one I have access to, SendReach is not on the list. Can you add html code to this?
HubSpot is one of the industry leaders in giveaways (so it’s probably no surprise they’re industry leaders, period). In an article about email list growth, Ginny Soskey shared HubSpot’s two-part view of giving something of value to potential subscribers:
First, you have to choose a phone number to register with Grasshopper. You can get a local number and a toll-free number. The next page gives that number text message access. Finally, you’re brought to the billing page. This, too, hasn’t changed at all.
These leads are 100% opt in and have a ton of data including the time and date stamp so that you can use them in an auto-responder or just email them. Many of them will have phone numbers so you can also call them if you want.
If you’re reading this, you probably have an email address (or two, or three …). In fact, you’ve probably been sending and receiving emails for years, and you’ve definitely received some questionable deliveries in your inbox.
Using Facebook’s Audience Insights we can narrow down the audience. Perhaps men between 40 and 50 years old living in Sydney, who are interested in boating and fishing. You can see in the image above that there’s 20,000-25,000 people in that audience that can be readily targeted with advertisements.
This innovative idea by Qmee.com rewards you for searching in Google, Bing or Yahoo. You just install a simple add-on to your browser and when you conduct a search there may be a few sponsored results alongside your normal search.
I like the interactive pricing. I think that is still a unique thing. You can put in how many subscribers you have and it will instantly quote you the exact price. The simplicity of the pricing is also good. It’s really based on how many email subscribers you have.
Direct email involves sending an email solely to communicate a promotional message (for example, a special offer or a product catalog). Companies usually collect a list of customer or prospect email addresses to send direct promotional messages to, or they rent a list of email addresses from service companies. Safe mail marketing is also used.
These days, we’ve replaced that message with Tweets, likes, and status updates, but that doesn’t mean that our affinity for email is any less. In fact, because of the noise that is social media, one could argue that the inbox has become our virtual dojo, our place of solitude amongst the chaos.
If people make it to the end of your blog post, chances are they enjoyed your content and are ready to take action. Having a strategically placed form here gives them a clear path as to what to do next.
Slack is a simple communication app that a lot of businesses around the world use. It makes team communication really simple. But the less known thing about Slack is there are a lot of Slack groups that can really help your business.
Take a look at the examples above and you’ll see that the first tells me I’m getting a free catalogue and a series of reviews and special offers, while the 2nd tells me exactly when I’ll receive the newsletter updates. This is a far more specific, and effective, way of doing business.
space and “(),:;<>@[\] characters are allowed with restrictions (they are only allowed inside a quoted string, as described in the paragraph below, and in addition, a backslash or double-quote must be preceded by a backslash);
Hi Matt, a really great article which pulls out many strengths. I’m a wedding photographer and I’m researching new ways to funnel visitors by their current; challenges, position in planning their wedding and then addressing short term buyers vs longer cycle buyers who are researching etc. Do you have any advice or examples which could be useful even if a different industry? Thanks Pete

Others contend that the sales funnel is still a valuable tool, as long as marketing and sales teams understand two things — that qualified sales leads may enter the funnel closer to the bottom than they would have 10 years ago, and that marketing’s role is changing.
Good to know, Katya! We’d been mulling over the idea of “submit your email to unlock even more content.” It’s super helpful to hear your response – both your gut reaction and your followthrough. 🙂 Just curious, do the bad vibes recede after a bit?
That alone puts you way ahead of most new marketers. For instance, you’ll know that you probably shouldn’t be directing traffic to your home page or to a huge product-inventory page, because those kinds of pages don’t usually present a clear opportunity for engagement.

Take it seriously. Yes, you’re applying for an online job. Yes, you can do the work in your underwear, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a “real job”. You must treat it as such or they aren’t going to treat you as a serious candidate. You aren’t the only one who wants to work in their underwear. In fact, the competition online is likely higher than it is in your local area.

Chad, you’re 110% right. Engagement is key and something most bloggers are “too busy” to take the time to do. I’m not sure what could be more important than engaging with your readers. That’s why I make it a top priority.
The addresses found in the header fields of an email message are not directly used by mail exchangers to deliver the message. An email message also contains a message envelope that contains the information for mail routing. While envelope and header addresses may be equal, forged email addresses are often seen in spam, phishing, and many other Internet-based scams. This has led to several initiatives which aim to make such forgeries easier to spot.

If you’re in one of the 10 states with bottle bills, you can return empty cans and bottles to the store for the deposit refund. I once made $1,500 collecting soda cans at work, although it took months, and I lived in Michigan, where the deposit is 10 cents each (in other states it’s typically 5 cents).
I am so excited to use your system to help my team. I have to share. I have a gal Kim who signed up 16 people this month; Fred 11; Jean 8; Nancy 8; Tiffany 6 and Ed 6. These are all brand new people seeing success right off the bat. I’ve never been able to teach that many people how to have so much success in their first month. I love it!
A customer adds some products to their shopping cart but fails to checkout. Send them a follow up email reminding them of the items in their cart. You may even want to sweeten the deal to get them over the line by offering a time sensitive discount. These guys are ALMOST over the line – don’t delay in getting them back in the funnel.
