You’ve Built Your List… Now What?

You’ve Built Your List… Now What?

Anyone who makes money online will tell you that you need to
build an opt-in list. All you do is give away a free ebook,
report or other item of value to get people to subscribe to your
list. It sounds simple and it is.
But once you start building your list, what do you do with it?
Build a relationship with your list members! Tell them a little
about yourself. Send them free valuable content in the form of
articles, ebooks or reports. Let them get to know you, like you
and trust you. Become their friend, someone whose opinion they
value.
After you’ve built a relationship they’ll be ready to buy from
you because they’ll trust you to recommend quality products.
It’s OK to send them sales messages.
I can hear some of you objecting to that last part…
“I can’t do that to my list!”
Let me ask you this… Why do you think everyone says you need
your own list?
The answer… Because they know the meaning of the phrase “the
money is in the list” by seeing it first-hand.
It’s a fact that when list owners send out an endorsement email
to their lists, they bring in a tremendous amount of cash from
the mailing… and they create cash on demand any time they want
by sending out an email.
Many list owners sell solo ads, thus the advertisers are paying
to “borrow” the list to make sales. So if you allow others to
“borrow” your list for the purpose of making sales, why
shouldn’t you sell products to your list, too?
Which would you rather do – make from selling a solo ad or
send your own endorsement and make hundreds of dollars or more?
I was speaking with a publisher friend recently and he mentioned
selling an occasional solo ad. I asked why he doesn’t send his
own sales messages to his list. (I’m on his list so I know he
doesn’t.)
His reply was “Not my list. They’re so unresponsive!”
“What have you offered?” I asked.
“I tried that software package one time, remember?”
As I recall, the software was offered over a year ago and he
hasn’t sent a sales message since then. It’s likely his list
wasn’t interested in that particular product, but that doesn’t
mean they won’t buy something else from him. He’s been leaving
money on the table all this time.
You must find out what your list members want, then offer it to
them. I guarantee they’re buying products from someone. Why not
get them to buy from you?
You can find out what they want by doing a simple survey every
once in awhile. Ask what would make their life easier or help
them get their business off the ground. Find out what they want
to know more about… Google AdSense income, how to create web
sites, etc.
Learn what they want to buy, then sell it to them. It’s that
simple and it applies to any niche market. You’ll be giving them
what they want, they’ll have products they need and everyone
will be happy.
The day of the week, and even the time of day, you send your
messages also affect responsiveness. Many studies have been done
that show the best times and days to send emails, but you should
test your list yourself. Once you discover when they’re the most
responsive, stick with that schedule for maximum results.
Your list is pure gold. The key to mining the gold requires some
trial and error, but it’s well worth the effort on your part.
And remember, these people joined your list to get quality
information and that includes product recommendations.

Microsoft Money Investment Recordkeeping Tricks

Microsoft Money Investment Recordkeeping Tricks

Microsoft Money provides powerful investment record-keeping tools for individual investors. Unfortunately, once you step beyond investments like stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, the mechanics can get a little tricky. Here are some tips for handling common investments in Money.
Certificate of deposits
If you purchase a certificate of deposit, you can treat it in the same way that you treat a bond purchase. Basically, certificates of deposits, or CDs, are just bonds issued by banks or financial institutions often for a shorter period of time. For example, you can think of a two-year CD as equivalent to a two-year bond.
Zero coupon bonds
If you invest in bonds, you may know that some bonds don’t actually pay periodic interest. Instead, these bonds, called zero coupon bonds, pay their interest when the bond matures. For zero coupon bonds, you need to annually accrue the interest on the bonds. The annual interest needs to be accrued because, by convention, you report the annual increase in the zero coupon bond’s value as interest earned.
To record accrued interest on a zero coupon bond, record bond interest that accrues in the normal way. In other words, whatever amount shows as being accrued—this should appear on the statement from your broker—record it as bond interest income.
After you record the bond interest that’s accrued, you need to record a return of capital transaction that adds this accrued interest back to the value of the bond. The amount of this capital transaction, obviously, needs to equal the accrued interest amount. But there is a twist here: You need to specify the return of capital amount as a negative value. For example, if you accrue 0 of interest on a zero coupon bond, you also need to record a return of capital transaction for the bond equal to –0.
By recording the return of capital transaction, you in effect transfer the bond interest money from the associated cash account and add it back to the zero coupon bond’s value. In this way the associated cash account shows the correct cash balance and the zero-coupon bond shows the correct cost basis. The zero coupon bond’s cash basis equals the original purchase price plus all the accrued interest that’s been recorded to date.
Derivatives
Derivatives are securities that derive their value from some underlying security. For example, an option to sell a stock, called a put, is a derivative. It derives its value from the underlying security. Another derivative is an option to buy a stock, called a call. You can use Money to keep records of derivatives, such as puts and calls you buy.
In general, derivative record-keeping is quite straightforward. If you buy a derivative, say a put or a call, and later sell the derivative, you simply have a normal investment transaction. You treat the purchase and later the sale in the same way that you treat the purchase and sale of any stock. If you make money, you realize a gain. If you lose money, you realize a loss.
If you buy or sell a put or call and hold the option until it expires, things work almost the same way. However, in this special case, you do need to record a Final Sale transaction, and the sales price is zero. Obviously, if you hold a put or call until it expires, you don’t actually sell the derivative. But you need to record a sale transaction to reflect the fact that the option is no longer worth anything.
These are the basic techniques you need to know for put and call record keeping—and record keeping for similar derivatives—but there are two special circumstances in which more complicated record keeping is required.
Selling Puts and Calls
If you sell puts and calls—note that the earlier discussion involves you in investing puts and calls—you need to record the option as a regular buy or sell transaction. In other words, if you sell a put and the person to whom you sell it exercises the put, you record this transaction as a regular sales transaction. Similarly, if you sell a call, you record the transaction as a regular buy transaction.
If you sell a put or call option and the option never gets exercised, you record the amount of money the buyer pays you as Other Income.
Exercising Puts and Calls
Typically, individual investors don’t actually exercise puts and calls that they buy. Instead, they simply sell the option back to the broker. However, you might end up exercising a put or call, and in this case, you need to perform special record keeping.
To record the exercise of a put option, record the sale of the put option at a price equal to zero. This zero-value sale is how you record the expiration of the option. After you have recorded the expiration of the option, you record the sale of the stock in the same way that you record the sale of any stock. (Remember that a put is an option to sell stock.)
To record the exercise of a call option, record the sale of the call option at a price equal to zero. This zero-value price lets you record the expiration of the option. After you have recorded the expiration, you record a regular buy transaction. (Remember that a call option is an option to buy a security.)
Precious metals and commodities
You can treat investments in gold and other precious metals, gold coins, agricultural items, and other commodities in the same way that you treat shares of stock. Rather than entering a share price, you enter a price per ounce or a price per bushel. And rather than recording a specific number of shares, you enter a specific number of whatever unit of measure is used to describe the commodity.
In the case of gold, for example, you might enter the number of ounces. In the case of an agricultural item, you might enter the number of bushels.
You can treat options to buy or sell commodities in the same way that you treat options to buy or sell securities. The earlier discussion on handling call and put options discusses the techniques you use for this record keeping.
