You can monetize the listbuilding process by puttingin a One Time Offer/Upsell right after the opt-in </li> <li> 11. But there are a few things tokeep in mind and even some things to watch out for! </li> <li> 12. Youll notice almosteveryone "Guarantees" clicks... </li> <li> 13. That is, Clicks through to the linkyou give them in your email "swipe copy"... </li> <li> 14. Your swipe copy refers to the email you give the solo ad vendor to send to their list </li> <li> 15. Your solo ad swipe should be pretty short and to the point Not trying to sell the product Just trying to get them to clickthrough the link </li> <li> 16. Hopefully, theyll use what you give them </li> <li> 17. But lots of times solo advendors wont use your swipe at all... </li> <li> 18.

BUT they werent looking for to solve that specific problem at the time they saw your offer </li> <li> 27. When people read your swipe email and click throughYou know theyre interested in solving that specific problem (Most of the time) </li> <li> 28. Sometimes they dont use your swipe so they can jamyour link in with three or four other marketers all together in one email </li> <li> 29.

They might even opt-in because your offer looks "interesting" or whateverBut they werent specifically looking for what youre giving away </li> <li> 37. They just happened across it and said, "ok" because it doesnt cost them anything </li> <li> 38. And this traffic ALWAYSconverts below average... </li> <li> 39.
