[Case Study] 455 New Subscribers Plus a Look Inside a $300 Email Campaign

December 12, 2012 · 27 comments

in Subscribers Journey

Hey Hey guys!

I’m back with yet another update video in my journey to 10,000 subscribers by December 31st. It has been a few weeks since my last update and I want to apologize for that. I’ve been quite busy working on a new software launch that’s coming out on December 21st. The great thing about this launch is that it’s a partnership between myself and a gentlemen named Andrew Naser who I actually met as a result of him reading my updates here on my blog.

So you just never know what can happen with the power of blogging!

This launch however has set me back in my 10k goal a bit but I’m not at all concerned because not only do I enjoy putting out AWESOME products it adds a HUGE surge of buyers to my list in a short period of time. Buyer subscribers are definitely more valuable then any other kind of subscriber you can have so I’m definitely looking forward to it.

So let’s move on to today’s update video. Today I have Β a few cool things to share with you on what I’ve been doing to build my list.

What the video below:

455 New Subscribers + Email Campaign Case Study

Resources Mentioned in The Video:

1. Warrior Plus: If you have a list and would like to add some additional income promoting to your business promoting WSO’s is a great place to find great products at great prices.

2. JVZOO: JVZOO is yet another WSO network where you can find some more great WSO’s to sell. You can also use both Warrior+ and JVZOO to sell your own products.

3. Aweber: I use Aweber as my preferred autoresponder. They are extremely affordable and easy to use.

4. Tube Takeover Formula: This is my video marketing course that I use to make passive income as well as build my list as as I mention in the video. I had a video in about position 5 sending me 1-2 subscribers a day. I was able to get the video bumped up to position #3 which is now above the fold and is now bringing me 4-5 subscribers a day.

5. Free Video Marketing Report: This is the free video marketing report I use to build my list and send people through my Auto Responder funnel.

In this update video I talk about how in a first initial test I got more subscribers from posting a FREE WSO at $40 then paying to have a benner ad at $100. Now I do need to test a few things out to see if I can get the same results again. What I want to test now is sending the banner traffic to the Free WSO thread FIRST and from the WSO thread to the squeeze page. Previously I just linked from the banner to the squeeze page.

I also did an ad swap with the lovely Ti Roberts from TiRoberts.comΒ . Ti Roberts is an up and coming traffic generation queen. She has some great traffic tips and tricks up her sleeve so it was a no brainer to ask her if she would be open to doing an ad swap.

This is another sign of just how powerful a blog can be because I first met Ti when she commented on this Update video hereΒ . From there I popped over to her blog and saw she had some great content. So I messaged her on Facebook and it’s all history from there.

Marketing Takeaway:

Get out there and start blogging and building relationships. There are two examples in this one article of how one simple blog can bring people together from all over the world. I would have never imagined I would be partnering up with someone from Egypt or doing an ad swap with Ti Roberts had I not started blogging here.

Nice update dude. Always interesting to see how people are doing on sales and conversions. The free report tactic is interesting too as I haven’t really tried that. Definitely something to try next.

Joshua Zamora December 12, 2012 at 1:25 pm

Thanks man. And yea I love using Reports because not only can you upsell to a video training but you can sprinkle affiliate links and links to the video product within the PDF.

Jimmy Wrex December 12, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Nice! I’m designing my next product as a PDF where affiliates can give away the first few pages as a teaser before the launch kicks in. Hopefully that’ll take care of the pre-sell. Amazon do it, so I reckon it’s a good strategy.

Joshua Zamora December 12, 2012 at 1:30 pm

hmmm wow that’s interesting! And yea my girlfriend downloads kindle teasers all the time. That sounds like a great twist to pre launching. Look forward to hearing your results.

Great update and you’re making awesome progress with your list building! Congrats on your upcoming product launch! I know that’s going to be really exciting.

Hi Josh,
You have some great information here. You are so right when it comes to networking with others. Just never know who you might meet and where it will take you in your Business. There is always something to learn when it comes to Internet Marketing and you can learn from others threw networking.

Thanks for all your input..

We just happen to be in the same Target here in Miami. LOL small world. And yea this month was full of networking and partnerships.

I also have to mention you have a great name πŸ™‚ thats my girlfriends name. We will be celebrating our 9 year anniversary this weekend.

Hi Joshua,

great stuff. It’s going to be tough now to reach your goal, but what you are doing is amazing. Some people need a year to gather 500 subscribers and you do it in a couple of days or weeks. Keep it coming.

By the way I would be interested in the Aweber training if you still give it out. Have nit done much with my Aweber account so far and I could learn a lot from your course I guess.

Joshua Zamora December 14, 2012 at 9:31 pm

Hey Daniel! Thanks man and yea it’s Gona be tough to hit the goal but I’m ok with that since the upcoming launch will add a good number of buyers to my list.

Thanks for stopping by man. Really appreciate it. And yea I just have to Dina few things to the members area if the aweber course and ill let you know when it’s ready.

Hey Joshua,
Thanks for the great information that you provide. I recently started doing affiliate marketing and bought your Tube Takeover Formula and OTO and it’s been lots of great information. I am very interested in the Aweber training videos that you mention. How can I get a hold of them? Once again, thanks for the great stuff you’re putting out.

Joshua Zamora December 15, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Hey Mario,

Great to hear from you and glad that you enjoyed my training 8) I have to brush up the aweber training a bit before I release it. I will be sure to let you know. I am shooting for early next year.

The free WSO is a good idea.. I never thought of that. I also like the idea of linking up with a partner to do WSO’s. Great video!

Joshua Zamora December 23, 2012 at 11:33 pm

Yea Julius,

The Free WSO is a GREAT method for leads πŸ™‚

Hey Josh, kind of a random question, but I was just wondering what program you used to create the video above. I’m currently looking into a program and have been leaning toward Camtasia, but wanted to get your recommendation. Also, what’s your Aweber course about? How to get subscribers, how to convert subscribers? Thanks for the help; talk to you later.

Reply

Joshua Zamora February 12, 2013 at 5:02 am

Hey Dickie,

Sorry for the late response bud! I use Screencast-O-Matic.com which is a great alternative to Camtasia and only $15 a year. I recently bought EasyVideosuite so I’ve been using that lately but Screencast-o-matic is definitely one of my favorite tools.

My aweber course is about the basics to getting to know your way around aweber as well as how I monetize my list with aweber.

Joshua,

Thank you for mentioning the importance of relationships in this post! This is really encouraging to me now as I’m starting to see exactly why I couldn’t make my sites work in the past. No one knew me so they couldn’t like me or trust me either. It’s a major head to desk moment seeing how much time I wasted!

What are your best relationship building techniques?

Also, thanks for pointing out the tools that you did here. I’ll be using them to build better relationships with my own list.

Reply

Joshua Zamora February 22, 2013 at 1:28 am

Hey Jeff! Glad to help man. The best way I’ve been able to build relationships is by exactly what you are doing right now. Commenting regularly on popular blogs in your niche.

I also connect with a lot of like minded people on facebook and skype. Just talk to people without expecting anything in return and get to know them.

Hey Joshua,

Very interesting case study to say the least. 455 subscribers is no small task and is very impressive. I haven’t really seriously considered ad swaps until I heard about it from Ti and you. I’m gonna have to give that a shot.

Looking forward to more awesome case studies from you πŸ™‚

– Mark T.

Joshua Zamora March 25, 2013 at 12:53 pm

Hey Mark,

Wow I apologize for the late reply. and yea Ad swaps is a great way to get new subscribers. I’ve done 2 with Ti and they worked out great. Anything I Can do to help let me know.
