We had an old course, How to make a $1,000 a month Business (no longer available).
About 1.355% buy the course when they visit the landing page.
Which means that 98.645% leave our website without doing anything. Ouch!
Amnesia marketing is when marketers have to start from the bottom every time they promote a product. Typically caused by a lack of email subscribers and a guaranteed way to reach their audience. This is not a Drake song!
Instead, to avoid amnesia marketing, get your audience’s email addresses.
Then you can contact them about the latest happenings in your business or your new product. No starting from the bottom.
On that same landing page, we added an email pop-up and asked if we could help answer any questions. 15% of visitors left their email address and we were able to reach out to every one.
Here’s the email pop-up we used:
We PERSONALLY email every single person with this:
Here are the results from the first month we did it:
That’s for a $300 product * 20 = $6,000 extra dollars each month = $72,000 more buckaroos a year.
All from getting emails.
Fact: If people like you, they want to hear from you!
This week we are setting up your email collecting infrastructure. So that in the upcoming weeks as you are getting more traffic, you have the right tools in place.
Many of you cited a goal of growing your email lists as part of Summer of Marketing. This is especially for you.
1) If you aren’t asking for emails, go sign up for Aweber (what I use) or MailChimp (first 2k email subscribers are totally free).
2) Install the List Builder by Sumo.com (100% free)
3) Make your homepage default to asking for emails, clearly. Here’s a free WordPress plugin to do that.
* Once you've completed 1 through 3 *
A) Leave a comment with the total number of email subscribers you're at right NOW.
B) Then by Friday at 5pm CST, reply to your original comment with your new total of subscribers.
C) One commenter will be featured in next week's email

P.S. Congrats to Raleigh W. of Jumpshell for leaving our favorite comment last week.
He gets 10,000 points for being ultra-specific about WHAT his customers' problem is, WHO they are, and WHERE they are.
Check out Jumpshell here and if you're looking for a new apartment in Boston, you're welcome 🙂
I'm still building the website. No subscribers. Yet.
Got our first subscriber yesterday. Exciting!
I have 12 subscribers. two of them are me... LOL
I have exactly -0- subscribers 🙁
A sad 115 subscribers. From long time ago. Here I go…
We're at 1357 subscribers to date
Thanks for your help! I am using your Sumome. It's awesome:-) I have noticed some room for improvement. Where could I drop a line and tell you more about the issues I spotted?
Thanks again for your awesome plugin!
I am looking forward to hear from you.
I didn't have a email subscription before this class, now I've set one up, offered my website partner's book as a raffle insensitive for those signing up, ad started tweeting and fb-ing it link.
I'm late for this week's assignment, but I've been working (translate "learning" ! ). As I've read the comments of community members, I feel such a sense that there is sooo much to learn. Much of the talk of email lists and subscribers is rather new and/or alien to my world.... I don't generally sign up for things and I don't like "clutter" in my email inbox, so I'm going by faith in Noah and the process !
I signed up for AWeber at the week's suggestion and started by designing a form on their website. Then I got "stuck" because the instructions for placing on one's website did not work. I let it go because more pressing business obligations were waiting. But today, out of the blue, an awesome customer service rep called me just to see how it was going and if I needed help. I hadn't even asked. Together, by phone, she researched and helped make it compatible and work with my site. She worked with me for about an hour 🙂 I now have the email form up on my site's landing page. Wow!
So I'm starting at zero at this moment 🙂 And I have not a clue what I'll say to anyone who may sign up. http://spinemate.net/Spinemate_Backrollers.html
I think I may just offer some discounts or something. But those steps will come next, right? I'm just feeling pleased with this first step. Thanks !!
Almost caught up . Current list - 169.
+29 by the end of the week.
I didn't end up installing the list builder as we only show our popup on certain pages so it would be a lot of work to exclude all the different pages we have for list builder.
I did however start an a/b test for our popup and changed our GA events tracking code to properly track the events of the a/b test. The changes were based off the "7 tips" articles and our variation is doing better so far.
I'm late, but haven't give up. 24 subscribers without the list builder. Installed it yesterday.
the total count continue to 0 🙁 ugh!! that hurts
ok it's time to tweak and shout
I use some changes on my scripts and i have 2 or 3 subscribers at this week.
I will try another changes today too 🙂
I have a increase on my subscribers but my Sumome plugin has a problem and i lost all of my subscribers.
I send an email to the support to see what is the problem 🙂 And after this i will try again another configurations to increase my subscriptions.
Started the week with 25, added kingsumo list builder on Thursday and added 10 subs from a giveaway (http://theselfemployer.com/giveaways/4-hour-work-week-giveaway-1/?utm_content=bufferf846b&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer). Very cool stuff. Fun to see things work so quickly.
Good advice, increased subscriber number by 24 by using list builder! Thanks
Had 0 emails before (other than our paid members). Just installed SumoMe List Builder (a bit delayed but its live now). Excited to see how many emails we get and how it aids in conversion (using similar approach to Noah's example)
Late with this one but I promised myself I would get it done. I'm at 267 subscribers right now and I'm excited about setting this up and the viewers it may bring me!
I have not attempted to gather email addresses or use them in the past. I don't like getting advertising emails and just delete them all, but since this is the emphasis of this week. I'm willing to go along and see where it all may lead.
So, current email list is zero, right now 🙂
25 subscribers right now... wow, feeling a little behind the pack here. Excited to grow this list.
2 email subscribers! 😐
Sadly, I have no subscribers! I'm so busy with agency work that I've neglected my own personal brand. 🙁
Perhaps that shall change soon!
0 email subscribers right now
Still 0 subscribers, but I started yesterday, so I guess it's normal
Start: 15 subscribers
I have 25 subscribers.
1,202 subscribers. Thank you for all your hard work! See you Friday...
4 subscribers so far.
Same number. No change. I'm actually having trouble driving people to my site.
I'm havin 578 Subs right now.
Today I have 1,065 beautiful subscribers!
22 subscribers right now
Currently at 242 subscribers. I already use List Builder.
For some reason I thought the deadline was Sunday for leaving a 2nd comment.
I'm not great with WordPress and only just figured out how to do the landing page. I used AppSumo's WordPress Interrupt plugin as I couldn't figure how to get the one recommended by Noah to work.
so... 245 subscribers at the moment
Still the subscribers I have I owe to the list builder plugin which I have been using for at least 2 months now.
Hi, is there a way to add first name to the list builder opt-in form? (Apart from adding my mailchimp code, which works, but makes it look all mailchimp-y and the nice colors disappear.)
START: 1296 subscribers
275 emails from from purchasers as a required field. Only 100 who voluntarily fill out optional log in info.
6,272 current subscribers
As of today, we have 58 subscribers on loopfirst.com
0. Not compatible with Thesis. I'll try and get one created in a similar style.
Today I'm at only 38 subscribers. Installed List Builder though so hopefully that number grows. A lot. 🙂
And like others, I'm also interested in having a first name field added. I'm trying to add a custom submit form from Leadpages but it isn't working properly. All that being said though, great plugin and thanks for offering it to us, Noah!
I'm at 25 subscribers...
I have 13 subscribers right now 😛
