Mailing List Software
Email is one of the best ways to reach customers and convert them into sales. The Mailing list app is a platform that helps us to store our customer or users email details so we can contact them regularly.
Messaging and customer relationship matters in making sales whether in digital or physical products. So we need to properly understand our audience/customers to form a solid relationship.
The software also helps us keep track and measure metrics. Which we can use to understand the audience and tweak our messaging to optimize for sales.

Preparing a well built & Designed website
Every business needs a website, to show your customers what your business is all about and what they gain from it.
In affiliate marketing you basically need a website to manage all your affiliate products and properly optimize them.
Most people make the error of linking the advertised products to their affiliated producer without going through their own website.
When you got a website, you can have different pages for different products and link your adverts to these pages. These pages can be used to collect user emails and still market to them even if they don’t buy.
90% of people don’t buy on the first day; you need to make sure you remind them about the product for them to convert.
The website + the mailing list work together to help us get customers and keep a relationship with all of them.
