NJFM is a No Pressure Zone
Internet Marketing 101 and 102 might work for other sites and other niches, but I’m opting not to squeeze or pretend to give away things for free. When I give away things for free, it’s just that, free. No strings attached.
I gave my first ebook away for free, I share info here for free and the information I’m sharing in my newsletter is also free. I don’t feel a need to give away anything else in an attempt to get folks to sign up.
Here’s the scoop. I’d like for you to sign up for my motivation for writers newsletter. Here’s the link. Don’t look for free give aways such as another book, a report or anything of the kind. Sign up because you want to. You can always unsubscribe if you so choose. I’d like you to stay because I believe the info is worth it, but if it’s not for you, I understand.
About the Squeezin’
I’m sure you guys have been squeezed before. My question is, once you’ve been squeezed, did you stick with the newsletter or did you drop your subscription after the 2nd or 3rd mailing?
Don’t get me wrong. Squeeze pages work. Folks have doubled, tripled and quadrupled their email list by creating effective squeeze pages and email campaigns. If that’s your thing, by all means, squeeze on. As for me and NJFM, we’re a no squeeze zone. 🙂
