Title: E-mail Marketing
Post by dansbanners on 1st Feb, 2018 at 11:31pm
With due respect to some of our past and current net marketing success. However, one thing, and I may be mistaken here, I don't think any of us (i.e. me, mm, ss and rui) really utilized e-mail marketing. I did give it a bit of a shot a while ago but really never followed up on it. It got me thinking perhaps maybe that's one skill we could learn in order to bring our marketing endeavors to the next level?

For instance, some of you may have heard of this team Team Atlantis Rising? I've been aware of them for quite some and have come across their ads many times over the years.

I'm thinking of giving it a try. Would any of you be interested if I give it a try?

From what I've gathered, it's $17.95 a month. So maybe it's a case of the longer the member stays with the program, the narrower (i.e. cost vs commission) will be? To the point it'll eventually become a net profit and increment from there?

In the meantime, we could also use it to build a mailing list and promote other programs or even the Team Atlantis Rising itself in it and all?

They are promoting traffic wave right?

Also, It's not just $17.95. It is also the cost of the traffic. I seem to recall traffic quotas to stay in their system.

This is fine for us but what about our recruits? Asking them to pay the $17.95 plus generate X amount of traffic is a pretty tall order

Though I do think it might have potential if we generate the traffic for our team if we can get a co-op type program running. It might need to be a free traffic co-op that we plug our referrals into that is paid out of our residual commissions

So we use our expertise to take it one step further for our teammates.

If you want to look into the cost detail of it Dan. I might be interested in say, up to a $500 total commitment  (cost of the program plus cost of the traffic co-op) over a few months

I looked up the team Atlantis thing Dan. I found it here:

http://teamatlantis.net/

It looks compelling but there are drawbacks.

The site doesn't look very professional. So they don't have a lot of money for web design but we can ignore that as a minor red flag.

One thing I see is that if we all join, we would all need to join the rotator, so we wouldn't be in the same line. I guess if one of us were to join and the others joined under him, then that would work. This would have some benefits for our team including cutting commissions for the guys above.

They have requirements at the site to send 1000 hits per week (does that include PTC hits?). They also require us to be in constant communication with our referrals. We also have to provide proof of this. This is not on for me and my time schedule (especially if we plan to build it big) but if one of us were to join the rotator of theirs then the others could be free to do their own thing as they join under him

I also see that it take 6 months to get you referrals. So that is six months worth of paying before you start to get money back (not break even). So it doesn't look like we can be very dependent on that team rotator. As I said, we would probably need to do it ourselves but not just for us, our team also since asking for a $17 monthly commitment for the web is already going to be a difficult endeavor

It would also make sense because if we can plug people under paying members they will get excited and have a greater chance of sticking

Are you still around Dan and are you still interested in doing this?

Thanks for your input. I'm trying to see if I could find an experienced member of this program from several other net forums I frequent.

That might work even better. We don't join TA but we join under them. That way we can benefit from them getting referrals from TA while still keeping our personal team intact
