Double Duty… Writing Articles That Can Be Broken Into Email Lessons

By Susanne Myers

If you write your articles in a way that breaks them down into several tips or ideas, it makes it very simple to break them into short autoresponder messages. You know the types of articles I’m talking about…”3 Easy Ways To Lose Weight”, “7 Tips To Write Interesting Articles”, “5 Ideas For Planning Baby Showers” etc. Here’s how to do just that.

Let’s say I wrote an article about 5 Ways To Save Money. My article outline would be:

· How To Save On Groceries

· How To Save On Utilities

· How To Cut Back On Unnecessary Spending

· How To Save On Gas

· How To Save On Clothing

Once the article is written, I can take each of these points; add a subject line, a one or two sentence introduction and an affiliate offer at the end. It won’t take you more than a few minutes per message to do this.

Then I just load the emails to my autoresponder, creating a 5 day sequence on saving money. If you’d like you can also hint at what’s coming in the next message, creating anticipation and improving your email open rates. For example, after the first email about saving money on groceries, I might mention that next week, I’ll share how to save x amount of dollars on utility bills.

But we’re not stopping there… I can even turn the original article into a short report, add the affiliate offers, create a pdf and add it as another email message to the autoresponder with a link to download the entire series.

Now let’s take it a step further. If I write a series of related articles, each of them broken down into 3 ways to accomplish something, 5 tips or 7 ideas etc. I can quickly create a series of 20 to 50 auto responder messages. If you schedule them to go out 7 days apart, and include the additional messages encouraging them to download the free reports you will easily have enough messages to last you for six months to a year. And each one of these messages is monetized with an affiliate offer, or an invitation to come back to your site.

Can you see how spending just a little bit of time thinking outside the box, can help you grow your traffic, your list and thus your affiliate income?

One last quick tip: Encourage your readers in some of these autoresponder messages to invite others to join your list. This will create a viral effect and get increasingly more people on your list.

And now I would like to invite you to learn more about affiliate marketing and how you can grow your own niche site in as little as 30 minutes a day using the strategies and checklists I’m using each day.
