Make a note of this URL. This is the URL you will use in the next phase where we begin driving traffic to your capture page to begin building your list of subscribers!

So far, you have created a new Autoresponder campaign, retrieved letters designed to follow up with your subscribers, and created a Hosted Capture Page that will be used to capture name and email from your visitors that also want to learn how to build their own targeted email marketing lists.

Your capture page is offering a free guide (this guide) to list building. Your letters are set up to show prospects how to get started using this guide and will be directing them to open their 30 Day Free Trial account by going to your TrafficWave.net Affiliate URL to register.

As they follow these same steps, they will be opening a new account with you as their referrer. When they see how effective this system is, it just makes sense that they will want to upgrade and that means you will begin receiving commissions on that sales volume!

So let’s get to our next step: Driving Traffic.

Driving traffic is going to be your primary focus from this point forward. Getting visitors to your capture page is how they will learn of the opportunity to learn more from you. In this case, they are going to learn how to get started building their own email marketing lists.

Let’s start with the simple stuff. Free promotion:

These same basic steps can be used to create any autoresponder campaign. You will, of course, create your letters for your other campaigns based on whatever that offer is but the basic setup for your campaign, capture page, etc… will be the same.
