    Hi Charlie,
    Have you considered looking into “Response Magic” Auto Responder for your recommendations? I have used it in the past and is really good, as oppose to Aweber for $19.95 for 500 subscribers, “Response Magic” is also $19.95 a month but they give you 5,000 subscribers from the get go. And they even offer a free account for starters with 100 free subscribers, is just a beautiful thing when people can get a free account for starting their business .
    The price is right for all their levels, and the customer service is awesome, the only reason I cancel them is because I left the MLM Bizopp I was involved in.
    I really really really recommend this auto reponder for my fellow members, I’m considering buying it again, I just hope I am able to use it for this program Charlie, thanks.

      Hi Able,

      What I am teaching does not depend on any one certain autoresponder. If you like Response Magic by all means use that one. No worries at all. I did not cover it in the course because I don’t use it and I try to cover only those techniques and products I use personally.

      I’ve had a few members ask about other autoresponders. I mentioned in the video that there are many good ones, and I’m sure Response Magic is one of them. I just limited what I covered to my actual experience. Doing that was not in any way saying that other autoresponders are not just as good as the ones I covered.

      To get traffic to any site immediately you will need to use paid advertising. I cover many ways to do this in the video on getting traffic. Please take a look at that when time allows.

    Hi Charlie. Thanks for this offer. I have been a marketer for 17 months and stumbled on a business that I am a member of without any earlier experience; a business that is considered by several top marketers to be an opportunity also profitable for newbies like me. Funny though I have access to fantastic training I have not been capable to translate it into more than small sells, and a main reason for it is that many are successful in Facebook marketing, and I don’t have budget for that, so make a short story, I put my trust in you for it to work. I am life time member also of DEO and I am gladly promote that. I would be really, really happy to make a ROI with the help of professionals like you.
    Thanks I really appreciate this opportunity 🙂

    Hi Charlie,

    I’m really happy to be a member of this site 🙂

    I am currently working my way through Follow Up Selling Systems (of which I am also a member), and I’m sure this course is going to work very well with what I am leaning in FUSS.

    …and if I combine all of that with what I have learned in my other 2 memberships (DOE and Common Sense Article Marketing), I think that will make for a powerful set of tools indeed.

    Anyway, thank you for creating this course, and for the invitation to join.

    Kind Regards

    Hi Charlie this is Alan Ortega I have a small list of 182 subscribers, the email open rate is about 2% to 8% , not to many and when they open they never buy , every time I look at my clickbank account is always 000 .
    What do you recommend .

    Thanks Charlie

    • Charlie Page

      Reply Reply October 29, 2014

      Alan,

      I’ll take a look. How many clicks do you get on the opens?

      Here is something to consider. Many products online convert visitors to sales at 2% or less. That means 2 sales per 100 people. Eight percent of 182 is about 15 people. It’s not reasonable to expect many sales with numbers that small.

      Have you considered giving them a free gift and seeing how many take you up on that? That is one way to test the attention of a list.

    awesome site Charlie. Even though I know how to build a list..

    you broke it down much simpler where i saw a few things I can make better as well as teach to my team.

    Can you do a product where you teach how to throw up these membership sites.. I would pay for that GLADY!!!

        Thanks, do I remember right that you use PayPal for payment? People keep telling me that you lose sales from PayPal.

        • Charlie Page

          Reply Reply November 4, 2014

          I do use PayPal. I find that you can lose sales with all payment methods, including PayPal. You can’t please all the people all the time so you end up choosing what serves most of your customers best and works for you as well.

          I have used many, if not most, payment methods in the last decade. I like PayPal the best but do still use Clickbank for my affiliate programs.

      Alan,

      Here is what I don’t understand. You said in your question that “every time I look at my clickbank account is always 000” but the entire focus of the squeeze page is making big amounts of money. Plus, you show a Clickbank account with very large daily earnings.

      I don’t understand how both can be accurate at the same time.

      That said, the squeeze page is going to appeal only to a particular type of person, a person who is quite desperate for money. The page has piles of $100 bills, the entire focus is on making money without sharing any specifics about how that might happen.

      I would tone the page down and make sure what is on the video is 100% accurate.

      I would not send more traffic to this particular page. I don’t think this page will work very well until some changes are made.

      Please understand I am not trying to criticize but only to help.

    Thank you very much Charlie. I have been a total disaster on the Internet. Even with this program, I start out and pay and then forget about it because have an inbox that totals at the present (November 2014) 1,200/day. This has to be deleted asap otherwise I am unable to cope. My only function is to identify emails I recognize and this takes an unbelievably large amount of time.
    Thankfully you are well organized and your instructions are clear so I am able to get to the detail without any trouble.
    You have won my fullest respect and with your help I SHALL SUCCEED! To date November 6,2014.
    When the opportunity comes, I hope to graduate to higher tuition from yourself.

      Ariel,

      It sounds like you might need to create a new email address for the email you do want and then notify those you want to be in contact with of the new address. I did that years ago and it has worked wonders.

      I wrote an article about it in fact. You can read it here if you are interested.

      I know you will succeed!

    Hi Charlie,
    As I stagger to the late 70’s I have struggled with this whole IM thing and after wasting almost a year buying and reading all the great whizz bangs for great wealth I opened one system and the bold statement hit me ‘ If you havn’t got a site yet why are you wasting money’ On reflection this is correct in most instances as at the end of the day if there is no ‘HOME’ there is no storage or room to work. For the last few weeks I have been cleaning out and relearning again the basics of IM. A hammer and chisel in the right hands works great for the unskilled it is just broken finger.
    I have a list of published articles about 10 covering the technical aspect of Marine Diesel 2 stroke engines and the importance of preventing pollution plus a series on Fluid Sealing Technology for Marine and Industry, not sure if ezines covers this type of article so I will send the list and see if there is a market for old time engineering brought into the 21sy Century

    |Best regards

    Hi Charlie,

    After a lot of thought, this course came at the right time. Having been a student of the following programs: Directory Of Ezines, Follow Up Selling Systems and Success Timing, I wondered if this could be a rehash of stuff in your other programs. But the more I thought of it, I’ve always got a lot of helpful info and training in any of the other programs I’m studying of yours! So when I read about the Common Sense List Building I thought this can help me!

    You see I’ve have spent a lot of time completely redesigning what will be my marketing site.
    The following has been setup since I last talked with you with all these changes:

    1. My blog is setup with articles being automatically posted on all various marketing topics.
    2. Every topic may be complete with either a video or related picture for the topic.
    3., My autoresponder with Aweber is setup for automatic product mailings and list building.
    4. Site sign up forms starts the process for automated article and product emails.
    5. A pop up sign up form for building a list is setup but doesn’t disturb the layout for the article topics.
    6. My storefront has various marketing products ( 15 of them so far, still adding).
    7. My product handling chores are carried with PaySpree for easy product setup, delivery and downloading.
    8. PayPal is used for the payment processing for customer product handling.
    9. The site is using the new auto HTML5 & CSS reconfiguration for layout while on main page and reading articles.
    10. I have two videos made by Zig Ziglar and Napoleon Hill about getting into the correct mindset for dealing with life and business, which I feel is the most important thing to know. Plus I always go back to watch them because their knowledge and information is precious!

    So right now I need to learn how is the correct way to build a list. I knew what ways you could use to build lists, but I’ve haven’t seen a step by step of how to go about it. I’ve tried before with some ideas, but they never grew into something. But working with Charlie’s programs to get me this far, I felt I have nothing to loose with a lot of time. So Charlie I hope your program will give me the direction and knowledge I need for my future success!

    Cordially,

    Barry Selk

    Hi Charlie, I am grateful you offer this course. I need a simple step by step process where I can take action immediately. I am a Health Coach and currently creating my first product (an online coaching course) which I want to launch as soon as the product is done. I have no list yet and I hope your advice will enable me to help many many people lead healthier lives.

    hi Charlie I am trying to get traffic to a high tier offer. I have tried many solo ad vendors and yes that is helping me grow my list but not get any sales. What type of traffic would you recommend as I am trying to find people with money that I can help. Thanl you

      I would focus on Facebook since they have such extreme targeting. But your email should be making sales for you. With a higher end offer having the email facilitate a personal contact, such as phone, is wise.

    ok I am promoting a direct sales product that has a front end $49 and a backend $1997 product. It teaches people via products and personal skype calls how to make money online putting funnels together etc. The conversion of FE to BE is about 6:1. Don’t know if you want me to mention the name?

    I am finding that conversions when using solo ads is non exsistent so just wanted some advise

    • Charlie Page

      Reply Reply November 19, 2014

      I don’t mind if you mention the name. What solo sources are you using? Also, people mean different things when they use different terms. What is “FE” and “BE” in the context of your question?

  • emmanuel wilkey

    Reply Reply November 25, 2014

    ok its My Top Tier Business (MTTB). I am using various solo sources some from the Warrior Forum, some from Facebook and some from your DOE. FE means front end product and BE back end product

      Sorry I missed this. It was mismarked.

      Solo ads are going to be great for list building. You might try using them again and then following up with those contacts by either offering an incentive for them to call you or calling them. Add the phone field as an option on your opt in form. Or perhaps as them for their Skype handle on your form.

      For a higher end offer personal contact is going to close sales. Your system offers that service as I recall, or you can do it and save money.

      Another alternative is to use a higher-end solo seller than you will find on forums. One that can target by income. We have these in the DOE.

      Another alternative remains Facebook where you can target by income and interest to drill down to the best possible prospect.

      These are things I would try if I were promoting your product.

      Charlie
