The redirect page is very often overlooked as a means of making money. We all know the money is in the list but you have to get the money out of the list. One of the biggest money leaks that many online marketers have in their marketing funnels is immediately after opt in.
When someone chooses to opt in to your list they have just said “Yes”. They want more of whatever you have been talking to them about. They have volunteered at least their e-mail address so they are open and in the mood to hear about other promotions.
Unfortunately, most online marketers at this point send them to a “Thank You” for signing up page. You are probably giving them a free report or something of value or they would not have signed up with you. So you don’t have to say thank you. Let me repeat that, you don’t have to say thank you. I’m not being rude but you need to put an offer in front of them.
So here is how you leverage this situation. I use a very simple redirect page. You can see it right here. It is this simple.
I have a page that looks very much like this after every opt in I set up. It tells them that I just emailed directions on how to get their free report and gives them a few seconds to read this page which offers a bonus. Then this page AUTOMATICALLY Redirects them to an offer. It is a perfect fit if you can give them a real one time offer. But sometimes you may not have that ability, it is still ok to just send them to an offer that is closely related to why they opted in to your list.
Here is the little bit of html code you need to add to your page to make it automatically redirect to an offer:
<meta http-equiv=”refresh” content=”4; URL=YOUR DOMAIN OR AFFILIATE LINK HERE”>
Insert this just before your “Title Tag” for the page. Where it says content = 4 that is how many seconds your page will be up before it redirects. From personal experience I use 4 seconds. If you decide to add a lot of copy to this page (which I don’t recommend) you may have to make this longer. Where is says URL= you should put the address of where you want to take them, it can be an affiliate offer.
This will take them right to an offer directly related to why they signed up for your list. When you do this correctly you will get sales. The percentage of sales will not be high but you will make some money while building your list this way.
This does require a little html know how and assume that you have your own website to and can create websites etc. You can do this on a wordpress blog page. Make sure when you add the code above that you are editing under that tab that says “Text” and not visual so the code will work.
Next we will cover an actual Thank You page where you have the opportunity to make some more cash from your list.
