An online businesses is like any other business, you have to have satisfied customers

that trust you. When you have there trust you will be able to sell to them.
If they are happy with your products and service they will keep buying from you and
even recommend friend (I have had customers forward on my email to friends and
family, increasing my database with no effort on my part)
It stands to reason the more traffic you have to your site the more sales you will
generate. Although in theory this is correct but you need the correct type of traffic
coming to your site. As you drive traffic to your site you will entice visitors to your
site to opt in to your e-mail alerts, you will keep them updated on newsletters new and
relevant products.
Now for all intents and purposes e-mail can be free although you will need some sort
of auto responder to get your opt in list started. (You can get free trial software to start
with but they are limited to 100 emails a day and most do not come with web opt in
forms on the free trial) With auto responders opt in list you are pretty much
guaranteed that your e-mails will be received and opened. You will be wasting your

that will do the job for you at minimal cost, they know what you are trying to achieve
and all the sign ups and potential profits that you will receive will off set any cost that

link in the document then you will get visitors from other sites and generate more
profit from this book.
If your followers can see benefit from receiving your newsletters, they will be eager
to receive them, do not just flood them with offer after offer after offer this is the
easiest way to get them to un-subscribe.
