Welcome to the sixth edition of email marketing tips on August 06, 2008.
Today we have only one post per category (almost). I purposefully assembled this carnival edition in order to eliminate unnecessary choices for you and get you to read the tips. But don't stop there, actually go out there, do it, and make more money from your efforts.
My absolute favorites are Gavin Ingham's and John Carlton's posts. Regarding John Carlton I have to confess I found his post. It's not that he found my email marketing tips blog carnival.
Anyway it does not matter, my goal is to provide value with this carnival. And I don't care how I get the content that I am featuring. I hope you appreciate it and I will continue to throw in content from top guys. John Carlton makes an announcement for email marketers at the end of his post by the way. That was another reason why I included this one here.
Did you feel that some some hands-on tips were missing here?
I felt that way. Therefore, I start featuring selected posts from AWeber's Blog. AWeber is a leading email marketing tools service provider. I use it personally and simply know their tips will work out for you. Could there be a better reason for including them. I don't think so.
Some readers wrote me they liked it whenever I throw in “third party content” that fits. There are many folks and companies who produce valuable content, but simply don't bother with Blog carnivals for whatever reason. Let's continue to take advantage of it.
Contact me to host an edition of this carnival on your Internet marketing related Blog.
John's comment: “My humble post” - Learn from the successful.
John Carlton writes Who Gets Read posted at John Carlton's Big Damn Blog, saying, “‘One in four adults read no books last year (USA Today)’… There's a marketing lesson here… We've put together a KILLER Webinar on how to get emails delivered and read, which is going to be available soon in audio/visual format.”
John's comment: Especially watch out for the P.P.P.S. John will be announcing a KILLER Webinar on how to get emails delivered and read. You don't want to miss that!
John's comment: Andre's advice goes beyond email opt-in forms. I highlighted: • Require as little info as possible; • Take away the “clear/reset button”; • Call Submit something else; • Don't enforce certain formats (e.g. with phone numbers)
