Should you write long or short emails? Well the short answer is it depends. It depends on your list, your relationship with your list and the niche.

Advice From Anik Singal

The biggest advice from Anik Singal is to mix it up. If you usually write long emails, throw in a short one here and there.

Short Email

If you are sending people to a sales page that converts really well then write a short email with a link directing them to that page.

Short works better if the page converts really high because you don’t have to do the usual preselling in your emails. A short email will be much more effective in this situation and you will get a much high click through rate.

Long Email

Long emails tend to have a lower click through rate. There are of course exceptions to this especially if it’s something they are expecting to receive.

You usually get a higher click through rate on short e-mails and less on longer emails. However the revenue generated by the longer email might still be better than the short one. It all depends on what page you are sending them too.

When you write a long email you have an better opportunity to presell the product you are selling. You can tell them exactly what they will be purchasing and you set up expectation in their minds and get them excited. With the short email your message is pretty much click this link.


It all depends on the page you are sending them to whether the email you send should be short or long.

The other thing to keep in mind is to switch it up sometimes. If you are always sending long emails, try sending some short emails and see what the results are.

The same goes for if you are always sending short emails, mix it up and send some long ones. It is good to change things up once in a while and you tend to get a better response out of your email list that way.

Test It Out

test email marketingTest it out for yourself, if you have an offer that has a high converting video on it send short emails.

If you are selling something that cost a lot of money and you have to persuade the person more then you should write a long e-mail.

Remember you will get less click thru but the clicks you do receive will be more likely to result in a sale.

Remember that what works for someone might not work for you. It can also depend what niche you are in. The key is to test it out and follow the results. You can learn everything you need to know from Anik with his Inbox Blueprint 2.0 review.

As we have mentioned before, ensuring that you are marketing correctly makes all the difference between a successful business and one that fails within a few months.

While there are many different strategies to ensure that you are drawing in your audience, the best way to ensure that you have your users attention is through their email.

Why You Need An Email List

Email lists are the lifeblood of your marketing strategy, offering you a way to stay in direct communication with your followers, increase sales conversion, and develop loyal followers to your brand or business.

Any good marketer will have multiple lists that are broken down into different categories, but you will only get those contacts if you have visitors opting-in to your email list.

Don’t Buy Your List

While some new marketers decide to purchase such lists, we suggest that you stay away from that strategy, as it is not a reliable method of gathering information. Many people have purchased lists only to find that over 60% of the information was outdated.

don't buy email listIt’s also often full of incomplete data, makes you look like a spammer, and can get you into legal trouble.

We suggest that you work on ensuring that your visitors opt-in, which means you need a strong marketing strategy.

9 Ways to Increase Your Opt-Ins

Here are some of our best tips to ensure that you are getting a high flow of opt ins.

1. Always Offer Quality Content

more optinsThis should be understood, but it is always good to be reminded that you need to ensure that your content is high quality.

If you are sending them duplicate content, poor quality content, post sporadically or are boring, people won’t sign up or will unsubscribe very quickly.

It is integral to your success that you have quality content that draws your users in, and makes them want to come back for more. Everyone’s looking for opt-ins, so what makes your content better?

2. Offer Incentives

offer incentivesA great way to get email subscriptions is to offer your readers something that they want in return. People respond positively with offers of e-books or free guides, although it can be better if you provide them with a service such as video tutorials or free courses.

Some will even offer a five percent discount on merchandise or products they sell or limited time offers. Whatever you offer, make sure it is interesting and relevant.

3. Use Pop Ups and Overlays

While pop ups may drive many of us crazy, they are effective at grabbing a reader’s attention and will prevent people from leaving your site before giving you their information.

Use a catchy form with a red button (this converts the best) and ensure that it is well timed with a five-second delay for the best results.

Exit pop ups and scroll pop ups are popular method that brings in results but limit your pop ups or you will aggravate your customers and come off as spammy.

4. Provide Sign Up Opportunities

Offer multiple changes to sign up, but once again, make sure that you are not laying it on too heavy. You have to find a good balance so that your marketing doesn’t overwhelm your visitors. Readers may only look at a widget, image, or pop up for a few seconds.

According to millionaire marketer Anik Singal, readers have to be presented with your info several times before they make the decision to commit. Give them those opportunities on your site.

5. Give Specific Bonuses or Prizes

Offering bonuses at the end of specific posts is a tried and true method that helps to encourage people to opt in to your email lists. Prizes from surveys or challenges also will help people to stay interested and engaged in your platform.

Make sure the bonuses and prizes are unique, relevant to the page or site, and don’t forget to change them from time to time. Why does your reader want your bonus and not someone else’s with a similar site?

6. Use Active Text

The best words you can use to get traffic to respond to your call to action are active text. Words like “watch this video,” “download this e-book,” “register and download,” Etc. Tell your readers exactly what you want them to do.

7. Opt-ins Through Social Media

Social media is incredibly important to your success, with fans and followers monitoring your social presence and Google using it to determine your ranking. Make sure to use it to gain site traffic and email subscriptions by adding sign up links on all of your platforms so that new users have an easy way to become a member.

Send meaningful automated direct messages to new followers (there are free tools for this), and offer prizes, bonuses, and incentives through your social media accounts as well.

8. Add A Hello Bar

Hello Bars are free and available in most themes. They offer a prominent call to action at the top of your page for everyone to see. They are nicely designed but not spammy, grab your reader’s attention, and are displayed across all your pages and posts to reach the widest audience.

9. Sticky Widget

This plugin inserts itself in the white space on right side of website, on all pages and posts so that your reader will always be able to see it. You can design it to scroll down with the visitor to get more attention and subscriptions.

What’s Different? The Hybrid Methodology

The truely different thing with their new program is the fact that they have come up with a hybrid methodology.

There are many different successful online business models out there and they are all great in there own way. But they all have their own set of challenges and weaknesses that can trip people up.

Here is an example if you take selling products on Amazon, the success rate for that is incredibly high. All the people who use Aidan and Steve’s training to build that kind of business are successful. So that’s the strength but on the downside it requires that you have capital upfront, have inventory and other cash flow issues. It is also very time consuming to develop.

100K Factory Ultra Edition

If you sit back and look at all the pros and cons to other business models out there. If you can come up with a model that takes all the strengths from successful other models and remove all the weaknesses and barriers from them. That is what they have done with the new Ultra Edition. Read my 100K Factory review to learn more.

This is Aidan Booth and Steve’s hybrid methology, they have taken something and created a process that has an incredibly high success rate, it’s scalable, the margins are crazy high, there is no capital to invest up front, quick results, minimum effort.

Things To Avoid With Eccommerce

You don’t have to carry an inventory, no risk, no waiting for results, no huge effort involved and no cash flow problems. This is the beauty of their new system which is completely different from anything you have seen.
