In this tutorial, we’ll focus on a smart way to build a list and generate leads and revenue with WordPress, using an ingenious Amazon sales and lead management plugin for WordPress.
Build A List And Generate Leads And Revenue With WordPress As An Amazon Affiliate
(Build a list and generate leads and revenue with WordPress as an Amazon affiliate!)
Whether your site is focused on getting more subscribers, turning more visitors into buyers, or selling more products online, having a monetization strategy for your WordPress site that lets you generate additional revenue by leveraging your existing efforts to drive traffic to your site and market your business online is definitely a plus.
And if this monetization method can be fully automated and generate you additional revenue while building you a list of targeted prospects in a completely hands-free way, then that’s even better.
Let’s take a look, then, at a WordPress plugin that lets you tap into an opportunity created by millions of hungry online shoppers searching for great deals and bargains online …
InstaGenius is a hands-free Amazon sales and leads management plugin for WordPress that instantly turns your website or blog into a profitable list-building and lead capture system using intelligent tracking, email marketing, and affiliate marketing automation to tap into a vast source of potential leads and sales … window shoppers and hungry bargain hunters searching for great discounts, sales, and irresistible deals online!
This plugin lets you automate your list-building efforts and grow an email database of targeted prospects who tell you exactly what kinds of products they are looking for …
(Millions of hungry online shoppers are searching for great deals online!)
The plugin then tracks those items on Amazon and sends your prospects an email as soon as the item goes on sale or is offered at a bargain price, helping them save money. When they buy the product at a great price, you get an affiliate commission from Amazon.
How The InstaGenius Plugin Works
(InstaGenius is a genius WordPress plugin that does the selling for you!)
The plugin is very simple to set up and use. Simply install and activate the InstaGenius WordPress plugin, connect your Amazon account and autoresponder service (e.g. Aweber, GetResponse, etc.), then choose an attention-grabbing image and specify where you want it to show on your site …
(Visitors looking for great deals online click on your call to action …)
When a visitor looking for great deals and bargains online clicks on the image, a pop-up window opens up where visitors can search for items they are interested in …
(Visitors search for the items they are interested in …)
As visitors search for items they are interested in from this popup window, a range of targeted Amazon products with your affiliate ID added in are displayed and if they click on the ‘Add To Cart’ button, you’ll be cookied for all Amazon purchases made by that customer in the next 90 days.
(InstaGenius creates free ‘price alerts’ for your visitors)
The real power of InstaGenius is creating free ‘price alerts’ for your visitors. The plugin offers buyers advice and invites users to subscribe to your list to receive an instant alert as soon as a discount is offered on their chosen item, saving them time and money.
When visitors click on the ‘Add To Bargain Watch List’ button, they will either be asked to subscribe to receive free price alerts if they are new to your site or the button will inform them that they are already subscribed.
Once visitors subscribe, the plugin creates a new user account on your WordPress site and automatically adds their details to your autoresponder account. It then goes to work for you tracking prices on their selected items, sending them price drop email alerts, and helping you to close sales automatically and hands free.
The InstaGenius plugin can monitor an unlimited number of products to an unlimited number of subscribers, delivering each subscriber exactly what they want, at a discounted price.
