How to Create an Email Subscription List for Your Business

Hello! Welcome to my article on how to create an email subscription list for your business! I’m really excited to share this strategy with you because with this simple, step by step method you can quickly build a huge email list which is full of targeted leads, people who are already interested in the offers you are promoting. You can use this for three of the most popular niche markets on the internet. It will work for anything related to the make money online niche, the health and fitness niche or the personal development niche.

I focus on online based businesses and I help people grow their own ebusiness around a niche they have a real passion and love for. Let’s first take a look at the importance of having an email list for your online business and then what steps you should take to start growing a huge, targeted list which includes 80 done for you emails professionally written by copywriters and sent out on autopilot on your behalf! Add to this your own emails and other offers with the option of custom funnels and you will start to skyrocket the success of your business.

The Importance and Benefits of Building an Email List

In the online world, Email Marketing is widely considered to be an essential component of Affiliate Marketing, or online selling. As the saying goes, “The Money is in the List.” The basic idea is to gather the email addresses of as many customers or potential buyers as possible who come to your business or landing page and follow up with them via email marketing. Marketers generally use some form of ‘Lead Capture Page,’ or ‘Optin Page,’ to collect emails. They also make use of Autoresponders, such as Get Response or Aweber to send out emails to their subscribers. To entice their leads to give them their email, many marketers use a ‘Lead Magnet,’ which is essentially some kind of bonus or free gift as a reward.

 

 

Most People Don’t Buy 1st Time Around: Out of all the traffic you manage to bring to your offer, hardly any of them are going to buy the first time around; it’s less than 1%. But out of a hundred, surely some of them thought seriously for a moment or so about purchasing, then drew back. Have you lost this potential customer for good? Yes! You probably have, unless of course you managed to capture their email and added them to your list.

The Average Person Needs About 7 Follow Up Emails: That’s right I’m afraid; it takes an average of seven follow-ups for a person to actually go ahead and make that purchase. If you’ve been in affiliate marketing for any length of time, you will have heard about this statistic. Most don’t buy first time and most don’t buy until about the seventh time. This is why email marketing is so important for making sales.

You Can Build a Relationship with Your Subscribers: Keeping in touch with your leads via emails that provide value and are relevant to what they are interested in can become an efficient way to build trust and good will. If the emails are engaging and polite, without coming across as spammy, these people will stay on your list and some of them will eventually get that email from you which does it for them and leads to a sale.

The Money is in the List! Email marketing has become such a successful strategy that we now hear this expression all the time when it comes to lead generation – “the money is in the list!” The bigger your list is, the more money it’s going to produce. The quality of your list is also going to affect this significantly. But usually if you are capturing leads that are already on your website or channel or sales funnel, the chances are these people are at least interested in what you’re about, what you’re selling. A growing list of such people is a core strategy of internet marketing – you don’t want to neglect it.

The steps I’m about to show you for this strategy work well for the three niches mentioned above, but they work especially well for the make money online niche. Let’s dive right into the steps you need to take to build a massive email list in a remarkably short time.

Step 1: Use 12 Minute Affiliate (Low Entry Fee). There is a popular ClickBank product called 12 Minute Affiliate System. It needs to be connected to Aweber in order to work. Let’s face it, if you’re doing email marketing, you need an autoresponder and Aweber is the one I am recommending because you will need it if you’re going to use 12 Minute Affiliate.

There are very clear instructions given via a video, so don’t worry, you’ll have it set up in no time… well, in about 12 minutes! It’s simply a system that sells multiple offers for you, using your ClickBank affiliate links, all traffic you drive to it, goes straight into your Aweber email list and is automatically followed up with by the system for months. But these same leads can also be sent other offers outside those of the system.

Step 2: Start Building Your List. Once you have your 12 Minute Affiliate System set up and your Aweber account, use EasyTrafficNow to bring leads through the 12 Min Affiliate System into your Aweber subscriber list, all for a low cost and within 1-2 days. Within 12 Minute Affiliate you can buy traffic; it’s all there in the system, but I advise you instead to use EasyTrafficNow because this is a lot cheaper and still converts well. Imagine how many targeted leads you could have within a few weeks if you just use EasyTrafficNow, now and then to bring fresh customers into your email list using the 12 Minute Affiliate Sales pages!

Step 3: Promote Other Offers to the Same Leads. The reason for using 12 Minute Affiliate is that not only does it follow up on your behalf with your subscribers with professional emails, but the subscribers on you Aweber list that come through 12 Minute Affiliate can also be followed up with using new offers, either in your own writing, or using pre-written emails promoting different offers (these of course, will still need to be related to the same niche as the offers promoted on autopilot through the 12 Minute Affiliate System).


So there you have it! A system that allows you to effortlessly build a huge list and you have the benefit of it selling products for you (imagine all those recurring commissions from the system’s autopilot selling alone!) as well as providing you with leads to whom you can sell literally thousands of other products to on the side. Now that’s what I call a beautifully functioning email marketing strategy.

Now to business! Get started with 12 Minute Affiliate Today and build that giant Aweber email list.

  4. I can’t thank you enough for this innovative post on email marketing. Although I knew about 12
    Minute Affiliate long ago, I never realized I could connect it to Aweber for email list building purposes. What an amazing discovery! This is one of the most amazing email marketing tutorials
    I’ve ever read it online.
    EasyTrafficNow is also a completely new traffic generation site to me. I was just planning to

    • Hello Joyce! This is wonderful to hear.  How amazing that you were just considering adding email marketing to your business!  This is most definitely a dependable and smart strategy.  Keep it going long enough and you can make loads of profit from it.  Within a few months you could have well over a thousand on your email list.  

      I like 12 Min Affiliate because it is well thought out and the set up instructions are so clear; no messing about.  And with EasyTrafficNow, you can get loads of signups for a lot lest cost than if you just order traffic from 12 Min Affiliate. 

      Well done on your efforts so far and I wish you further success!

  6. Thank you for this helpful post on how to create an email subscription list for your business. I did sign up with the free AWeber account a while ago, but I have not yet started to create a list. I am very aware of the fact that I need to do that to generate more traffic and sales, so this has motivated me to be pro-active. I did not know that 12 Minute Affiliate could be connected to AWeber and thus help me.

    • Oh, that’s great to know this has been helpful.  Once you are in the 12 Min Affiliate System, they will show you how to connect it to Aweber.  Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts on this.

  7. This is very true for marketers online, as an email list can increase your bottom line profits dramatically. As you pointed out, people hardly ever buy from you on the first visit to your website, but if you can build a great relationship with them, they are definitely more prone to buy from you in the future.

    Would you say that 12 Minute Affiliate helps a lot with the process of building your list, or is this product more for recommending products to your list?

    Reply
    • Yes, that’s right!  Email marketing is a great way to get the most out of your customers and sell things to them further down the line.

      12 Minute Affiliate does both those things you mentioned. The actual list building part consists of using one of the 12 Min Affiliate hop links/affiliate links when ordering traffic from easytrafficnow.  This brings leads into your Aweber list through 12 Minute Affiliate.  Then they get sent automatic emails because they are connected to 12MA.

  8. This is an eye-opening article as I had no idea that an email list was so important to my online business!  12 Minute Affiliate seems like a great, easy-to-use, “set-it-and-forget-it” program and, let’s face it, the more we can automate things, the better we can run our business.  The price is reasonable as well.  Thank you for posting!

    • Great to hear this Cynthia! Yes, you’re perfectly right, we should be able to use some automated tools as part of an online business, not that they should be the main focus.  12 Min Affiliate is good for building a list and for auto-selling.  But the rest can be done in other ways.  Thanks for your comment.

  10. As an affiliate marketer, I know how important email lists are.  I have not been very successful setting one up with just a plugin.  You article went over the rationale for an email list very clearly.  I think that developing even that kind of relationship is important for business.  I am going to look into the 12 Minute Affiliate to see how it functions differently that some things I have already attempted to use.  I appreciate the article because it is a personal endorsement of a product about which I had not heard.  Thanks,

  12. Doing an email list is definitely something I need to look into more closely. I just started my website and it is getting a little bit of traffic now. When do you think it would be beneficial to start an auto-responding service. My website is coming along but it still needs some work to be relevant.

    Reply
    • Well done on your progress so far sir.  Well, you could start now to build a list, that would be no problem.  Just keep working on your website at the same time.  Then when it is larger, you can use some of your best articles as emails to send to your subscribers.  Having 12 Minute Affiliate running in the background can’t hurt – remember it sells products for you.  You just need to be sure you have a ClickBank account.  Then you should be good to go.

  13. Hi Dominic, Ntmu. I really really like your article! I am so excited to read your article bcs I have been looking and trying to understand how to create an email subscription and what to write in this email subscription. Thank you.

    I have not any ideas that even I have Aweber installed I can send and follow up emails marketing. But what emails from which one, is I have not subscribers, I really don’t know how to get them. 

    I know that to buy traffic is cost you money, I know that it takes around 7 follow up emails to your subscribers and you can build a relationship with them. but again from where do you take your subscribers? PS. Sometimes I think I put myself in something v big which I don’t know how to do. 

    For this I am deeply grateful for your article!

    Overall, with the risk that I am repeating myself my question is, how do I get subscribers? 

    Reply
    • Hello!  Thank you for the comment and question!  Yes, so all you need to do, once you have set up your 12 Minute Affiliate System according to the steps in the article, you just grab your link from 12 Minute Affiliate and head straight to easytrafficnow.com  You can order a little or a lot of traffic depending on your budget.  But it is one of the cheapest traffic sites on the internet and still converts well.  

      What happens next is they deliver the amount of clicks you order by promoting your link to a large audience, mostly from America.  Many of these clicks will turn into subscribers because when they click on your link they are asked to give their email before proceeding to your offer (which is the 12 MA System).  Then, Bingo! They are added to your Aweber Subscriber list and will stay on it as long as they want, sometimes for more than a year!  

      I hope this helps.  Again, it’s just a matter of giving your link to EasyTrafficNow and ordering as much traffic at a time as you are able to.  Then next week, come back and order some more, and so on, until you have a huge email list and can start to make serious profit from the sales.

  14. I really enjoyed reading this article and getting some data to answer questions I’ve had. I didn’t realize that people need around 7 emails before pulling the trigger on something. This does seem like a good system for running and automating email marketing. I was encouraged by all the value for $10 but disappointed that the $10 is just for a trial and the price goes up steeply after that. Guess I need to think on this one some more.

    Reply
    • Thanks for your comment Aly.  So happy to have helped with some of your marketing questions.  And yes, you’re right, the ‘getting started’ price is to encourage people to try the software and get a feel for it.  Then there are two options: either a lifetime membership of about $360 with no more bills, or monthly billing at $47/month.  Most people who stay with the system do say it pays off well, but only further down the road when they have a big list and start making the real money on the back end.  One marketer had over 2,000 subscribers on his list from using 12 Minute Affiliate and sent out 1 broadcast email from Aweber promoting something else and made multiple sales in one go.  I too think the system is a bit pricy, even though it’s pretty brilliant, but I think saving up and getting a lifetime membership is probably the best strategy.

  15. Hey Dominic. Thank you for the article. It was a great eye opener . I have been contemplating about this for some time but have not been able to bring myself to doing it.

    • Hello Bogadi!  This is wonderful to hear.  Taking action is where it all begins.  I sometimes say to people, ‘think about how many subscribers you could have months down the road.  Or after a year…?  In time you could have a thousands of subscribers on your list, all interested in what you are offering!  Thank you for this positive feedback!

  17. Hi Dominic. I had to go through your article in great detail because I am about to set up my online business and I still find some of the lingo and processes a bit intricate. Your explanation has helped to sort out some of my questions and I am glad there is some assistance offered. I prefer to pay and get the help. I find a lot of value in your letting me know that I probably would have to contact my customers a number of times before they give me a positive response. The package looks helpful and working with templates and presets is likely to provide me with the support I will need. Thank you.

  18. A great guide Dominic! The thing is, I’ve never seemed to reach a point where I’d see success with email marketing. Granted, I only had one site that has a couple of years old and I didn’t put too much effort into gaining an email list.

    However, would you recommend building a list for a fairly new website, say, about 8 months old? Aweber is great, though I’ve seen people recommend Mailchimp as a good free starting option.

    • Interesting, and thanks for your appreciation of the tutorial.  Oh, yes, you could definitely start building a list now, even with a fairly new website, that’s no problem.  In fact the sooner you build it the sooner you can make money from it.  Again, starting with 12 Minute Affiliate is a smart way to go.  Yes, I’ve heard of Mailchimp but never used it.  I’ve used GetResponse and Aweber.  Aweber lets you build a lot of subscribers before you need a pro account, so you can start free until you hit 500 subs.  But the pro account is only $16.50/month.

I have subscribers, but the problem is that I have never done anything with it.  I have a travel site and just not sure what I could put into a newsletter to sell.  I offer information on beach destinations.  Any ideas on what I could do with a news letter to generate income?  Maybe I just need to generate more viewers by letting them know about new information?

  21. This is an excellent post! Personally, I do have AWeber and have the option for people to join the email list in every post. However, I am not sure how many people have joined and would love to have insight into this.

    Also, I think that your tips and pointers are an excellent lead in to the product(s) you recommend. I am unfamiliar with the saying the money is in the lost. Despite this, I am at least more aware of how to implement a lucrative strategy.

  24. Thanks for introducing us to 12 minute affiliate.

    It is alarming to read that only 1% will buy on the first visit and can take up to 7 contacts.  That is a lot of correspondence.  I’m afraid I am always very reluctant to give my details in pop-up boxes and I would probably ignore further messages, so I must be a nightmare for other companies!

    This is a really clever tool to help to keep your callers updated and to encourage them to make a purchase.  Unfortunately I can’t get the traffic yet.  But I will certainly keep this in mind.

    • Thank you for this comment.  Yes, well it’s only a general statistic.  Also, if someone is actually good at marketing, they can sell things a lot easier.  But the system, 12 Minute Affiliate can enable beginners and intermediate marketers to sell once they have a good sized list.

  27. Hi Dominic, 

    I think the money is in the list. No doubt about that. And therefore, whatever we do to make that list is too little. There are affiliate marketers with thousands in their lists, and that’s where we have to get to. 

    I think the 12 minute affiliate system is quite interesting. It promises to build us a good list in the shortest time possible. It should be worth a try, definitely.

    Great post. Full of useful information. I have not had the chance to create an email subscription list, but that is something that is on my to-do list. Thank you for reminding me of the importance of it. Often, as we get so involved with creating content for our new websites, we forget all the other aspects. Your article is a great reminder to keep balance and focus on marketing as well as content creation.

  31. Very interesting article. I have known that email marketing is an effective tool to use but was unsure as to when to incorporate it. I already have a GetResponse account and am wondering if this 12-minute marketing will work with GetResponse or is Aweber a must? I do struggle to learn new software so if I can use something I already know my way around that is a big time saver. How do I create a lead magnet, is that something I do myself and if so is there software to help with that? I think it is definitely time to add email marketing to my business. Thank you.

    Reply
    • I see, that’s interesting.  Well if you did want the 12 Minute Affiliate System, you’d probably be better transferring your current subscribers from GetResponse to Aweber since 12 MA does need Aweber to work.  It’s so clear how they explain the set-up once you purchase 12 MA that you won’t struggle with Aweber, anyone can do it.  But I understand what you mean alright.  With Aweber you can have a free account for till you reach 500 subs so that’s pretty good.  You might need a funnel builder to create lead magnets.  I’d suggest HBA Funnel Builder for example.  Much cheaper than Click Funnels.  I hope this will be of value to you.  All the best!

    • Hi Dave, that sounds great!  Thank you for your generous feedback here and I’m pleased to have actually helped.  I do think it would be a great addition to your business to have all those subscribers and the auto-emails being sent out.  It’s a system that needs to grow, but can grow fast and then produces sales.  I hope it works out well for you.

      Best of luck and many thanks.

  33. I just started my blog about 4 months ago and was wondering if I should start an email list. I’m not seeing any sales so I think it’s time to start creating more of a community following. Thank you for suggesting specific plugins and the 12 Minute Affiliate program. I don’t have many ClickBank affiliate links, however. Would this work with other affiliate programs or would I be better off going with something different?
    Thank you for the useful info!

    • Hi Nicole, while you continue with your site, this system could be a valuable asset to your business.  As long as you have a free ClickBank account, the system will work for you and select multiple links for you and promote them for you professionally.  Yes, you can use the custom funnels within the system to promote products from any other affiliate marketplace on the net.

  34. Helpful article.  I have read that about the “7 Emails” thing with regard to visitors to websites.  But I never thought about permanently losing a potential subscriber/buyer because they think about a product on your site and then decide to click away.  I definitely need to get started with an email subscription for my website.  Thanks for the help.

  35. Hi Dominic, the 12 minutes affiliate system seems a worthy program to use. This offer to try it for 9,95 Usd is a good one. They say that we can try this system for 14 days for free too. It sounds great to me. The Aweber is also free for the first 500 subscribers, so in the first two weeks, everyone can try this system with Aweber in every niche for free. 

    thank you for sharing it

  36. Hi Dominic, thanks for providing information and tips on email marketing. I haven’t gotten into email marketing just yet, and I have been preparing for that for some time now. I guess you answered my main question and that’s how to create an email subscription list for your business. I have been in contact with so many visitors through the comments section and I wish I have done the email connection earlier. Well, still is better later than never right?!

    • Yes! You’re right!  The sooner you start the better; it’s always useful to have the possibility of earning passive income from those who show interest in your business.  Thank you.

  37. What a useful, in-depth article, Dominic – thank you so much for offering such a step-by-step tutorial. The fact that it takes about seven follow-up emails is a bit daunting, especially for people who don’t feel comfortable repeatedly knocking on potential customers’ doors; however, when I look at it from another angle, I like getting interesting emails, and I usually buy a product from someone that appeals to me and whom I trust – and, as you say, this only happens after some time, not immediately. I’d like to ask you how the process of ‘ordering traffic’ (either from EasyTrafficNow or 12-Min.Affiliate) actually works? How exactly will I get those signups – i.e. how will they discover me? Through adverts? It would be good to have a look ‘behind the scenes’ and to understand how it works and what I’m paying for. Thanks again for your highly engaging post!

    • Hello Lucie, you’re very welcome and thank you for your generous feedback.  Well affiliate links will be provided for you and all you do is drop your link into a box, (copy and paste) then pay for your traffic.  With EasyTrafficNow you can start with as few as 25 clicks.  That means they promote the link for you and let’s say you ordered 100 clicks for only $59, (you save $40) you’d probably get about 70 signups and possibly a sale or two.  These signups are then part of your Aweber email list and receive follow-up emails from 12 MA Affiliate.

  38. Thank you for this awesome article, I don’t think that people realize the importance of an email subscription list, particularly those who are promoting and selling products. People don’t always buy the first time when visiting your website and once they leave you might lose them for good, having them subscribe to an email list gives you that opportunity to remind them of what they initially wanted to purchase but without looking for it somewhere else

  39. Hi, thanks for this great article on how to create an email subscription list for your business. As a newbie in online marketing, this information is very important to me since I am still trying to get more traffic to my site. I think an email subscription list is one of the best ways to get back your potential customers back to your site. If it takes an average of 7 follow up before a potential client buys from you, than an email subscription list is definitely worth it.

  40. Great article, Dominic! In my opinion, anybody building a business should get into email marketing and create a list for the reasons you mentioned in your article. I have heard of the 12 Minute Affiliate system here and there, but never really knew what it was about. Is it a course where I need to get separate tools for landing pages and emails? Or some other thing?

    Reply
    • Hi, thank you.  Yes, it’s a system rather than a course.  There is a section where you can easily put together what they call ‘custom funnels.’ So no extra tools needed.  Inside they will show you how to connect it to Aweber. I think the system works well.

  41. A really great article emphasising the importance of building a list if you really want your affiliate career to take off. Agree with everything you say here and 12 Minute Affiliate seems a very effective way to take some of the hard work out of getting subscribers – if only I had found this sooner!

  43. Love this post.  I agree email marketing is a great way to build your list. One of the main benefits is that the subscribers will belong to you.   I was considering the 12-minute affiliate but I am now a little disappointed that you can only use it with Aweber.  I use convert kit and don’t really want to change. It would be good if they considered having more email providers.  

    Reply
    • Yes, that is fair enough.  Although once the system is set up, you don’t have to fiddle with Aweber.  It is also free for the first 500 subs.  And you can transfer all your subscribers from convert kit on to it.  But I agree, it would be handy if they enabled it with other providers.

As I’m working to build up my own online business for the last past months, one of my children told me about the need to build up an Email Subscription List, as a beginner in online business, I was looking for some accurate information and I’m glad I found your website as you share great information, after reading your article, it helped me to learn more about what an Email Subscription List is and why my online business needs its own, I’ve heard about a couple of names like Mailchip and Aweber, but this is the first time I hear about 12 Minutes Affiliate System, so I will take a look to it.

  45. About email marketing is still new to me, although I heard many members talking about it. Your overall article has helped me to know more details about creating a Lead Page to collect email address, store it, use an autoresponder to send mails with pre-make mail to them. I have some questions below.

    Other than creating content to get traffic as WA teaching, is it another way of getting traffic, but at the same time collecting the email address? 

    We have traffic from search machines and social media, can the program help to collect email address from our website? Or just from the “Lead capture page” or “Optin page” to collect the email address only? 

    If join the 12 minute affiliate program, the entry fee is only $10? And what we get is act

    Reply
    • Yes Stephen, this system is a separate income stream on the side for your overall business.  It does not depend on your site or how much traffic your site is now getting.  Use EasyTrafficNow; they will promote your 12 Minute Affiliate link with the optin page.  Yes, there is a low entry fee, so you can try the system for 2 weeks.  Then you can either pay a life time subscription or chose a monthly billing plan of $49.

    thank you for this detailed instruction on how to build an email list. I have already heard the saying “money is in the list” before, but unfortunately I haven’t set up an email list for my website. Focusing on publishing more content first, then, hopefully, build an email list, soon.

  49. Thanks for explaining how to create an email subscription list for a beginner. I’m surprised that people need about 7 follow-up emails to convert them into sales! Is this also applied to big discount / special promotion emails? I will try to check the 12-minute affiliate system. But, can I use Mailchimp instead of Aweber? I just sign up on their platform, but if Aweber is better then I might switch to them. 

    Reply
    • I would say use Aweber; it’s simple, popular and fairly cheap.  But if you already have subs on Mailchimp, you can transfer them to Aweber.  12 Minute Affiliate will need Aweber.  They show you clearly how to set it up.

  50. Hi Dominic, A great review of email marketing and the benefits associated with affiliate marketing niches. AWeber certainly seems to be the “go-to” for email marketing. I have a website in the golf niche and I’ve just started on my make money online site. I still need to write a whole lot of posts on both sites to get them to “authority” status. This gives me food for thought for the future, thanks.

    Reply
    • Hello!  Well done on your progress so far!  The system I was talking about can be used aside from your site – it is its own separate income stream.  But the subscribers can be sent separate emails by you, directing them to your site or to some offer.

    Email marketing is the best way to market your business online and creating an email marketing strategy provides your business the opportunity to reach millions of Internet users.

    As you mentioned in your article, people don’t buy from you on the first visit to your website, but if you can build a relationship with them through your email, they will buy from you in the future.

    I wanted to know, will 12 Min Affiliate System show you how to connect other email providers like Mailchimp etc?

    • Hi, thanks for your feedback and input here.  12 Min Affiliate does need Aweber but they show you that when you set it up.  But Aweber is free for your first 500 subs, so there is still a lot to be gained.  And you can transfer your subscribers from your Mailchimp account to your Aweber account.

I have only sent the freebie I offered at this point as it was less than a week ago that he subscribed. This has come at the perfect time for me as I’m not sure what to write to him next. Maybe what you are offering will be able to assist me with ideas, what do you think?

    • Well done!  Yes, if you use the 12 Min Affiliate System, it will promote offers in the three niches mentioned in the article.  You can then send your own offers through Aweber to the same subscribers and just keep building your list. Hope things work out for you!

  56. You do an excellent job here of explaining why it’s important to to build an email list. I agree with many of your points.

    I already use Aweber and it is really a great service. While I haven’t tried 12-Minute Affiliate before, I have heard many good things about it. EasyTrafficNow is new to me, and I would like to know more about it from people who have used it. Does it really help bring in a good amount of quality subscribers, the kind that do more than just take up space on your list?

    Thanks for the tips!

    • Hello!  Well EasyTrafficNow is something I researched myself as well and so far I haven’t seen anything much against it.  You get a ton of sign-up each time and a sale every now and then.  They’re not top quality leads but top quality leads are expensive.  I’ve heard good reviews both on Google and on YouTube, saying that EasyTrafficNow works for them.

    • Yes, this can be a source of side-income that eventually really builds up.  It doesn’t need  to be your main business, but can be running in the background.  I’d recommend the MMO niche since it has the best products, most with recurring commissions.  It can be a separate income stream for your business.

  58. Hey Dominic, 

    Great post! I 100% agree. The money is definitely in the list. I know people that have made a living just by offering value and products to their email list. They don’t even have their own website anymore and they have been ding this for years. 

    I always laugh when people say email marketing is outdated.

  59. Thank you for your super informative review.  This is a topic I have gotten into a lot in the past few months and I feel like I’ve just gotten the wind knocked out of me with all the knowledge you’ve just hit me with. May I ask, how did you find the 12-minute affiliate product on Clickbank?  I feel like the further I get into the whole affiliate thing, the more “Tools” and programs I HAVE to sign up for in order to start making money.  I have paid for a lot of them that I’m unsure if I’ll even use.  One thing that I really am warming up to though is the idea of paid traffic. How do they differentiate the types of things people want to be emailed about? Or is it only a certain type of traffic they send, like the make money online niche?

    Thanks in advance,

    Rene K.

Creating an email subscriber list is something that every online affiliate marketer want, in order to keep customers updated on the latest article or reviews and gaining their trust.

I will certainly be looking into this great tool as an add-on to my autoresponder.

  65. Hi and thanks for sharing this very clear explanation of the 12-Minute Affiliate. I have been reading and absorbing much information on this subject now for some months and I think I am starting to understand some of it. What can I say, I am a slow learner. I have heard differing opinions though. I have heard it said that the email list is absolutely essential and you give an excellent explanation of why that is the case. Because people need to make contact with your site and your proposals typically 7 times in order to make a purchase. And the best way to maintain the momentum of those contacts is through regular emailing with relevant content. In this picture though, I wonder the extent to which high-quality SEO optimized content plays a role. I ask because I have heard others who have said they have built an online affiliate marketing business entirely and exclusively through regular posting of high-quality niche targetted and SEO optimized content. Thanks again for a great and well-presented review. Best regards, Andy

I think this program will be a great way to get the ball rolling on an e-mail subscription list for my website. I have 2 questions. First, do Easytrafficnow and 12 Minute Affiliate work pretty similarly in bringing traffic? Second, is the entry fee the only fee or is 12 minute affiliate a subscription service?

    • Hi!  Well EasyTrafficNow is just a separate site that promotes your affiliate links for you.  It’s PPC, (pay per click) but cheaper than many other sites.  The entry fee lets you try the system for 2 weeks, then there is a monthly subscription plan, or you can just buy a life time plan.

  68. I have recently discovered that communication by email allows the information sent to be relatively extensive, attached or can be expanded by the recipients without any difficulty. This is a huge advantage when it comes to email marketing.

    At the same time, we can play with the structure of the contents to better focus our objective when communicating. I have begun to get good results focusing on these things.

  69. When you say “you can buy traffic” – what kind of traffic is it? How do you know if it’s your target traffic? Also, these leads, can you clarify where they are coming from? Sorry for so many questions. I am quite confused if it’s worth a try. Thank you.

    Reply
    • Buying traffic or paid traffic is a matter of buying clicks on your affiliate/opt-in link.  It will usually say on the site where the traffic is from.  Usually it’s from the U.S. and Canada.  It will also give you some options regarding a target audience.

  70. Hi Dominic,  I have just read through your guide.  I’m really not sure about 12MA I’ve done my research and it seems to be very risky in terms of investment.  If I had a few hundred to burn maybe I’d give it a go but don’t really trust it to be fair.

    As for the easy traffic now I would be tempted to try out but need to do some reading.  About you said otherwise about email marketing you are right about getting people to join it can be very profitable.  Still not had much success with my list but definitely it’s a good way to go.

    So far, an email list is essential for lead generation.

    As a professional expert if someone does not prepare an email list he or she may lose his / her customers for good.

    So, I like to stop here.

    Thanks all.

    • Hello Monique, this is really great to hear!  Yes, taking another step towards increasing your leads and building up your business is always a good idea.  12MA can be a really good side-hustle and start making money for you which gradually adds up!

  80. What a helpful article! My partner and I are starting our business on a shoestring and I had despaired of having this type of sophisticated automatic lead-tracking system for our business. Your article came at just the right time and showed me exactly what I need to do! Thank you very much!

    I do have one question though. The Aweber pro system says it “starts for as little as $16.90 per month.” I am nervous about clicking on the “start Aweber Pro” button to see if I can learn more. Are there more details you can share, or would they be revealed when I click on the free trial?

    • Hello Lisa, that’s great you found the article to be helpful for you!  I’ve noticed that 12 Minute Affiliate can work with a free Aweber account, although they advise a pro account.  I’m not sure exactly what you want to learn about.  Aweber is a basic enough and very popular autoresponder.  The video tutorial in 12MA will show you exactly how to connect it to the system.  Then you can explore it a bit for yourself, learn more on YouTube or ask me some specific questions.  

      But yes, if you go for the free version you will have all the necessary tools and can learn all about it.  When you hit 500 subscribers you will need to upgrade to pro in order to keep adding more to your list.

  81. Hi Dominic, ‘the money is in the list’ has been the ultimate saying for years now, and it couldn’t be more true. Lists build trust, especially when you are able to bond with your customers. 

    I have had a few different email lists, and they work with most niches. One of those that I have had, however, was a very personal and emotional niche, and I had to stop the emails because answering them got too heart-wrenching for me. 

    All in all, though, you are also right on the mark when you say that it takes the average consumer about 7 times to see a product before they actually buy it. So many marketers think that one or two emails would work, and then they give up if and when it doesn’t work for them.

    This post was very informative, I hope that more readers will come to understand the necessity and value of having email lists!

  83. Dear Dominic

    I am interested in learning how to promote WA following your article from the get go. I am not sure how Cilckbank fits into the picture. Can you share the four or five steps I need to get started building a list to promote WA? Your reply is much appreciated.

    Best regards, Rupert.

    Reply
    • Hi Rupert, humm, well there isn’t exactly an automated system like 12 MA for WA.  Although you could send out broadcast emails from Aweber to your subscribers advertising Wealthy Affiliate.  Or you could activate a pop-up on your website to capture people’s emails.  Then promote manually again.  ClickBank is free to sign up for and you need it to run 12 minute affiliate, but you could promote WA to the same leads manually through broadcast emails.  I’m afraid that’s really all I got on that for now.

  86. Interesting I struggle with Email marketing I have tried Get Response, Mailchimp and a couple of others but have never tried Aweber. I have seen it recommended elsewhere but put off the idea of trying it after my previous misadventures with email marketing.

    I will check out your links and see if this will work for me. Costs as always is an important factor.

    Thank for this information.

  88. Hi Dominic, it’s great to meet you. My names Gabriel and I run a fitness website. It’s good to know that there are affordable services out there that can help me with email marketing. At some point, I will have to incorporate that into my online business. My question for you is, are there any free methods of doing an email subscription list? 

    Best regards, 

    Gabriel J

    Reply
    • Hello Gabriel, nice to meet you too!  Yes!  If you use the plugin from WordPress you can have a pop-up on your site which captures people’s emails (if they give it that is).  But I use this because it’s faster and more consistent/reliable.  

      Well done on all your progress so far!

  89. Hi Dominic,

    I must admit I have always put creating an email list in the back of my mind.  I have been doing affiliate marketing for a while now and just never started an email list.  I realize the importance of one, but it always seemed like a daunting task.

    The 12 Minute Affiliate System sounds great and easy to use and implement.  Aweber seems to be the most popular choice of Autoresponders, and both go hand in hand.  

    Your article has given me the push I needed to finally get started on creating an email list.

  91. Great info for how to create an email subscription list!  I have Aweber and a list of 300 subscribers.  I’m hoping to get some conversions from my list.  My list has been growing and 30% open my emails but no sales.  How do the additional products you suggest offer help?

    • Yes, it can be a slow process.  It depends on what niche you are in.  They do convert with the right leads.

  93. Very interesting way of gathering and creating an email list. I’m still having trouble trying to find a good autoresponder system but I’ve seen so many great reviews for Aweber and seeing that you also mention this service here gives me more reassurance to give it a try. I’ll be following your instructions to properly setup this strategy.

  94. Hi Dominic,

    Email Subscription is one of what I have been asking for since I begin here, but I was advised to focus first on creating more content. I just have 40 contents as of now. Some are still none SEO. 

    But I am really interested in email marketing. Reading the comment of Nina and having AWeber bookmarked but not yet read, I am thinking subscribing to 12 Minute AWeber System. I just need to do some fixing concerns and I will go back to your post when I am ready.

  96. Hello Dominic, 

    I am very interested in growing my email list! Something I have been lacking in all of my efforts is how to get people to actually enter their info. The 12 Minute Affiliate looks like an affordable and useful tool!

    I am already subscribed and using a different contact management system. does 12 Minute Affiliate work with other platforms than AWeber?

    Looking into it! Thanks for sharing!

    • Well done on your efforts!  Yes, 12 MA needs Aweber (they show you how to connect it in the video tutorial). But if you are on another platform, you can transfer your subcribers to Aweber if you wish.

  97. I would like to learn more about email marketing. I started using it a few months ago, and I would love to learn how to write catchy headlines for email marketing. I receive many emails in my inbox (many I don’t remember signing up for – or I inadvertently signed up for them, because I clicked on one thing and got 5 new email subscriptions without realizing it – I noticed that the last time I signed a petition, there was a list of email subscriptions from at least 7 ot 8 other websites, all clicked and in small print, hardly noticeable, I unclicked them all before signing)

    So, considering those tactics I just described which put me off, I am a little torn about how to use it properly without appearing too invasive. I use GetResponse and I’m very happy with it, but perhaps it would be a good idea to look into 12-Minute Affiliate. Can I transfer my existing emails from my GetResponse lists to Aweber?

    Reply
    • Well done!  Humm, copywriting (writing emails that convert into sales) is quite a skill, but it can be learned.  

      As for your autoresponder, yes, there should be a way to transfer the subscribers to Aweber since I’ve done this myself from an old Aweber account.  I’ve briefly used GetResponse, but I’d say you should be able to do it alright.

  98. The article is well written, it shows that you know what you are talking about. I like the fact that you even mentioned the types of niche’s this strategy can work on, you didn’t focus on the side of enriching yourself, but you explained that whoever want to use this strategy must be aware on which niches must anyone use it on. Another thing I like is the mentioning of the tools needed when using this strategy, how to use them to get better results, and also how to get them. You even gave the steps anyone need to follow when one want to use this strategy. I myself have learnt a lot and consider to use the strategy for my online business.

  99. Hello Dominic! I am glad I stumbled upon your blog post. I have been wondering how to create an email subscription and this is very helpful. However, I don’t think I do have enough content to follow up with my audience. Would definitely consider the 12 Minute Affiliate once I think that I am ready to build my own email list.

  100. Hi Dominic, you website is very clean and well presented. I like how you have structured your menus and not strayed too far away from what you want to say, straight to the point i like it. M y only improvement would be to use the all in one seo and break down some of the posts as there are some that have very bulky paragraphs which could be split into more manageable ones but apart from that, good job.

  101. I totally agree with you Dominic, being pretty new to the online business world, I’ve come to realize how important an email list is to growing your business. I think having a vast email list and a system in place to strategically send the right email at the right time with the right ad copy is fundamental. SEO and paid advertising are great but I believe a strong email list is gold to building loyalty to your brand and ultimately establishing a long-term business. Great article by the way and this information is so valuable to the online community.

  102. Thank you for this post.  I have not created an email subscription list.  I have not found a good one that can be used for free.  For people who are trying to get buy and not making much or no money at all $194 a month is kind of steep.  I understand an email subscription is important.  What to you suggest for people just starting out where funds are limited?

    Reply
    • Yes, this is a way of paid affiliate marketing to get results faster but it does cost.  Well, alternatively use the plugin in WordPress for an email/lead capture pop-up box…?  This is assuming you are using Wealthy Affiliate and have a WordPress website?

  103. Thank you so much for sharing such an informative post about email list! As an online marketer, email list is everything. Wow, i had no idea that it takes about 7 emails to convert them, well i guess I am the same way so I am somewhat relatable. Thanks for your review for 12 minute affiliate. I am going to check it out and take it from there.

  104. Very good article, Dominic. Many of us have problems with e-marketing, forming an email list.
    This is a good way to form it. Normally several conditions are required to be met, but if they did not fulfill the program you offer it would not work properly.
    You have given us the opportunity to improve our business with very important email marketing, which many of us neglect.
    I hope that after this, it will be easier for us to decide to deal with this type of marketing. All the best.

  106. Thank you, Dominic, for that article on Email Marketing.

    I was not aware of this product 12 Minute Affiliate. I have used Aweber and felt I still needed to do something else to build a list and it took a long time and I am still trying to build a good list. With 12 Minute Affiliate, it looks like I will start building that list quicker. I see I will still need to add on the Easy TrafficNow as well and the cost is escalating, is it worthwhile with all that cost?

    I tried Global Money Line, and the list builds up quickly but you don’t have full control of the list. It is controlled by Global Mone Line. What about this? do I have full control of the lists I compile?

    Looking forwards to your prompt response.

    • Hi Ntlhane, it is true that this is a way of paid affiliate marketing.  You just buy more traffic whenever you can afford it.  Eventually it all builds up, takes time though.  You just get however much you can afford and keep building the list.  

      I’ve only briefly checked out Global Money Line.  Not too sure what to make of it to be honest.  I would say if you are able to promote what you want then,  yes you have a certain control over your list.  But perhaps Global Money Line also promotes things to your leads without you knowing?  I don’t know.  

      Hopefully you’ll find something that works for you.

  107. Hi there

    Great informative post.

    Its true when you say that most people don’t buy anything the first time they receive an email from a marketer.  Talking from my own experience I have been on some email lists for years and never bought anything and then suddenly something has grabbed my interest and then I was hooked! Suddenly I felt I could trust the option and bought something.

    The emails should provide value and be relevant to our needs and wants.

    I am interested in 12 minute affiliate and it sounds great value.  I will be looking into it!

    Thank you for the introduction.

    Best wishes Sheen
