Finally Getting Some Where But Need Some Pointers From The Pros

    Hi People,
    SEMrush
    I am finally getting somewhere in my marketing efforts but I have hit a bump in the road and need some advice/pointers from experienced Affiliate marketers on what may be going wrong now!

    I have some well converting squeeze pages that convert at 50%>
    I have a 10-14% buy rate when users opt-in
    They go straight into an affiliate campaign that sends emails on a regular basis EOD. ( First email is welcome).

    Now this is my problem,
    Once on my list I have around 20-25% open rate and 2-6% (even more on some) CTR.
    But not one single sale, these products are from popular affiliate networks that have a proven high conversion rate.

    I am thinking it could be the way my email campaign is set up (Very basic).
    Its quite frustrating now because I have the potential to make some decent money now with my list. The subscribers are highly targeted through PPC.

    I am just wondering if any of the experienced affiliate email marketers had this problem when they got to this stage?

    I would like to keep my offers and pages confidential i hope you guys understand

    Thanks in advance and looking forward to solving this issue

    Hi newmarketer18,

    Let me ask you a question. Are you just bombarding them with ads, or are you providing them value and making a connection with them to build trust?

    You can keep it confidential...
    and I hope you understand that no one will be
    able to help you by guessing what your problem might be...

    What you need is a list conversion expert, and you will have to
    open the books if you want him/her to help solve your issues...

    It could be anything:

    1: no newsletter format
    2: too many sales pitches
    3: maybe the content is not good
    4: list does not know or trust you...
    5: no personal connection with list
    (other then sending pitches...)

    How many email series do you have?
    and who wrote them? When it comes to emails/newsletters,
    then you really need an writing expert that has a proven
    history of conversions, and if it is not the content, then
    whats left? the mystery affiliate programs you say are good...?

    I just unsubscribed from 5 lists this last week...
    not one of them ever provided any useful info....
    one sales pitch after another until I just got tired of them...

    I do have a couple of experts in mind, however, they are not
    cheap, and not sure if they charge by looking at your setup...
    send me a pm...

    Great advise here newmarketer18. If you are providing high-value content in your email campaigns and not high volume sales pitches you might try devising a survey for your list that will show you whether you're giving them what they want.

    And if not, what they do want.
