How to Let Your Subscribers Mute Your Emails

Give your subscribers the freedom to choose what content they want by letting them “mute” your emails.

Not every subscriber will be as excited as you are about your new product, promotion, event ⏤ or whatever cool new thing you’re ready to share. Until now, they’ve only had two choices: ignore your emails or unsubscribe. But there’s a third option: 

Let them “mute” your promotional emails. 

Instead of unsubscribing from ALL of your emails, subscribers can choose to mute those particular emails, and still continue to receive other emails from you. 

This allows you to send to subscribers who actually want to receive those particular emails. You’ll likely see higher open and click rates, increased conversion rates, and more revenue generated from this targeted audience. 

Simply include a “mute” button or link in your emails.

Then, using AWeber’s broadcast automations, apply a tag to any subscriber that clicks the “mute” link or button. You can then exclude subscribers with the tag from future broadcasts about that particular topic or promotion. 

Watch this 8-minute video to learn how to add a “mute” button or link to your emails, and create a segment of interested subscribers.

I've been at this “internet marketing” deal for a LONG time (since about 1997).

I've learned tons over the years. Many things have emerged and a lot has changed.

But there's one thing that really hasn't and that's C–>T–>P–>M.

In order to be a successful marketer, you need a few “basics,” and these basics cover the following:

  • Content
  • Traffic
  • Pre-selling (or just plain selling), and
  • Monetization

If you want to be a successful internet marketer, you need a few things.

You need a blog, webhosting, and a domain name. Get an email service provide like Aweber and collect email addresses of your visitors.

You need to publish content. A LOT of content. It can be on your website, but it can also be in Facebook groups and pages, YouTube, your email marketing, LinkedIn, Twitter, you name it.

Once you have that continuous content creation routine in place, you need to drive traffic to it so people can consume it.

A lot of your traffic-driving comes simply from the content creation itself, in terms of SEO. Google WILL pick up your content, index it, and run it through its algorithm. If your content is good, it will get ranked in the top 10.

But you still would be wise to drive your own traffic to your content because you should never put all your eggs in the Google basket.

Your content, of course, should not just be informational. It should “ask for the sale” or–at the very least–“pre-sell” the sales page you're about to send them to (if an affiliate offer).

And, of course, that “selling” should result in money. Revenue. It's why you do what you do.

This ain't no hobby. It's a business and you must treat it as such.

Part of any business–a big part–is selling. There is no way around it.

Which brings me to today's offer: Traffic Profits. This VERY INEXPENSIVE course will teach you how to drive traffic to your content so that you can monetize it and build a profitable internet business.

Forty pages of no-fluff, quality traffic-driving content, strategies, and tactics that will get people to your site. THEN you can sell 'em something.

Traffic Profits will show you over 100 ways to drive free traffic to your site. It covers content syndication to sites like Quora and Medium (HUGE traffic-generators, if done right).

All in all, this is an indispensable traffic-getting resource. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Once you learn how to drive traffic to all of your offers & content, you will never eat pork ‘n beans again (only if you want to–and that makes you a sick sick person, IMHO).

How to Create a Sitemap in WordPress (XML and HTML)

WordPress sitemaps
Use sitemaps! They are great for search engines and humans alike.

From the article: “Learn how to create a Sitemap in WordPress. You can create two sitemaps: XML and HTML sitemap. Understand the difference between XML and HTML sitemap as well.”

Sitemaps are critically important for both your users and search engines.

Search engines first:

Google and the other SEs LOVE XML sitemaps because they tell the web crawlers EXACTLY where to go to find ALL of your site's contents.

The easiest way to add XML sitemaps to the Search Engines is through the Yoast SEO plugin, which makes several sitemaps for your WordPress site automatically.

You do still have to tell Google and the other SEs where to find them. But once that's done, and their spiders hit that sitemap, your content should be indexed pretty quickly.

At least in theory… 🙂

Now, HTML sitemaps are awesome because, like XML sitemaps for search engines, they help actual PEOPLE know where to find all of your content.

I cannot tell you how many times I've gone to a massive site (loads of content) that had crummy, non-intuitive menus, and just wished for a human-readable sitemap.

Well, that's what an HTML sitemap will do for your WordPress website!
