The Simple System That Helped Grow My Business Massively

October 2nd, 2012


Lee here, hope you’re well?

I just wanted to drop you a quick message about something that could
improve your websites traffic and earnings.

Over these past two years or so I’ve been using a super simple system that
has grown my online business to levels I never thought were possible…
not for me anyway, and I’ve always dreamed big.

I’ll cut to the chase because I wanted this to be a quick message. My
super secret system for growing my business beyond my dreams….

Wait for it…

Email Marketing. (what the hell? how boring! spam?)

Yes, seriously! Think about this for a minute.

I know it sounds very 90’s, dull and you may even be thinking about
spammy emails.

But you’re reading my email right now because of email marketing. You provided
your email address in exchange for access to one of my free guides or services.

Email marketing allows me to build a ongoing relation with you and this ultimatley
helps me sell more of my products and services.

So my question is, isn’t it time you started email marketing too?

I really hope something just “clicked”. Your answer should of course and absolutley
be a big fat YES.

Email marketing is so simple and consists of two basic parts:-

1) Email capture form.
In exchange for your visitors email you provide something free,
it could be a guide, service, tips & tricks, a coupon, a discount
or anything you like.

2) Autoresponder list.
A special kind of software that manages all your email subscribers
and what messages they should receive and when.

With these two basic things in place you’ll have a subscriber list that you can contact
at anytime (within reason), and it will grow to become your biggest online asset.

I highly recommend you start email marketing today by clicking the link below this text


The sooner you start building your list the faster it will grow and the more profit producing
power it will have. This truely is a must have asset if you’re serious about being successful online.

If you need any help or have any questions about e-marketing just reply to this
email and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

Hope you have great day.

Best Regards


Forget Web Traffic. You Need Conversions

May 23rd, 2012


It’s Lee from with a little tip that will
make your forget about generating website traffic. At least for a

You might think generating website traffic is the key to success,
but the truth is that traffic is only half the solution.

Most people think
Website Traffic = Sales

But in reality it’s actually like this
Website Traffic / Conversions = Sales

Have you ever thought about conversions? Be Honest.

Increasing your conversion rate is often so much easier than
increasing traffic.

One of the best methods to increase conversions is to have an email
list, because your email list allows you to follow up with your customers
and build relations with them and this ultimately makes you more sales.

For example: Assume a potential customer is looking for the best
deals on car insurance and they have arrived at your car insurance
website. » Read more: Forget Web Traffic. You Need Conversions

Posted by Sean Cohen of Aweber

Confirmed opt-in as defined by SpamHaus, who is one of the most respected anti spam organizations in the world:

Known as “COI” in the legitimate bulk email industry, also known as “Confirmed Opt-in”, “Verified Opt-in” or sometimes “Double Opt-in”.

With Closed-Loop Opt-in the Recipient has verifiably confirmed permission for the address to be included on the specific mailing list, by confirming (responding to) the list subscription request verification. This is the standard practice for all responsible Internet mailing lists, it ensures users are properly subscribed, from a working address, and with the address owner’s consent. » Read more: Confirmed Opt-in Myths Exposed

Email Deliverability Tips

May 9th, 2010

Posted by Tom Kulzer (AWeber CEO)

Ensuring requested opt-in email is delivered to subscriber inboxes is an increasingly difficult battle in the age of spam filtering. Open and click thru response rates can be dramatically affected by as much as 20-30% due to incorrect spam filter classification.


Confirming that the people who ask for your information have actually requested to be on your list is the number one step in the battle for deliverability. You should be using a process called confirmed opt-in or verified opt-in to send a unique link to the attempted subscriber when they request information. Before adding the person to your list they must click that unique link verifying that they are indeed the same person that owns the email address and requested to subscribe.

Subscriber Addresses

When requesting website visitors to opt-in ask for their “real” or “primary” email address instead of a free email address like Yahoo or Hotmail. Free emails tend to be throw away accounts and typically have a shorter lifetime than a primary ISP address.

List Maintenance

Always promptly remove undeliverable addresses that bounce when sending email to them. An address that bounces with a permanent error 2-3 times in a 30 day period should be removed from the list. ISP’s track what percentage of your newsletters bounce and will block them if you attempt to continually deliver messages to closed subscriber mailboxes.

Message Format

Usage of HTML messages to allow for text formatting, multiple columns, images, and brand recognition is growing in popularity and is widely supported by most email client software. Most spam is also HTML formatted and thus differentiating between requested email and spam HTML messages can be difficult. A 2004 study by AWeber .com shows that plain text messages are undeliverable 1.15% of the time and HTML only messages were undeliverable 2.3%. If sending HTML it is important to always send a plain text alternative message, also called text/HTML multi-part mime format.


Many ISP’s filter based on the content that appears within the message text.

    Website URL:Research potential newsletter advertisers before allowing them to place ads in your newsletter issues. If they have used their website URL to send spam, just having their URL appear in your newsletter could cause the entire message to be filtered.


    Choose your language carefully when crafting messages. Avoid hot button topics often found in spam such as medication, mortgages, making money, and pornography. If you do need to use words that might be filtered, don’t attempt to obfuscate words with extra characters or odd spelling, you’ll just make your messages appear more spam like.


    Avoid creating messages that are entirely images. Use images sparingly, if at all. Commonly used open rate tracking technology uses images to calculate opens. You may choose to disable open rate tracking to avoid being filtered based on image content.


    With viruses running rampant and spreading thru the usage of malicious email attachments many users are wary of attached documents. It’s often better to link to files via a website URL to reduce recipient fear of attachments and reduce the overall message size.

CAN-SPAM Compliance

The January 2004 Federal CAN-SPAM law introduced a number of rules regarding the delivery of email. It’s important you have your legal counsel review your practices and ensure you are in compliance. The two most important rules include having a valid postal mail address listed in all commercial messages and a working unsubscribe link that is promptly honored to remove the subscriber from future messages.


Reputation services are often used by large ISP’s as a way to vet email senders regarding their email practices and policies. Businesses listed with these services are then given less stringent filtering or no filtering at all. Several reputation services are:


Relationships & Whitelisting

Contact with major ISP’s and email providers is essential in letting them know about your requested subscriber email. Many large providers such as AOL and Yahoo have specific whitelisting programs and postmaster website areas to ensure your email is delivered as long as you meet their policies and procedures in handling your opt-in list.

Email deliverability is about ensuring requested opt-in email is delivered to the intended recipient. While no single tip will enable you to get 100% of your email delivered each one utilized as a group can go a long way to reaching that goal.
