Today, I want to share with you the secret weapon I’ve been using to generate incredible amounts of signups – with a whopping 20% conversion rate!

For those of you who are getting training from me, you’ll know that at the end, I talk about using blogs, forums and social media as a continual source of leads for whatever you do online. Well, 2 months ago, a new hot traffic exchange called Hitsilo launched, and boy has it been a gold mine! Not for the traffic exchange (necessarily), and not for the banner exchange either. But for the social networking community there.

You see, I’ve been leveraging the ability to communicate with all of the members there to generate massive amounts of signups to programs that I promote.

Before I explain how I do it, let me quickly mention what I do not do. I do not just spam hundreds of users per day. I also do not just send them a sales pitch.

What I do is actually browse the contacts there to find out about them. Their photo, their username, sometimes their name, and sometimes their blogs/comments. I can also see when they signed up, what level member they are (which tells me if they’re already spending money) and in many cases, if they’ve been actively surfing lately.

I then use a template message (always use a template, just so that you can track how well they work, let alone to avoid typing for hours), and modify it for the user I’m sending it to, based on what I’ve learned. I’ll use the message to communicate with the user and empathize with them by relating with them on a personal level.

Then, I’ll offer my program as a gift, or thank-you token. After a genuine personal message, this will usually go over much better, and will increase my conversion rate. I make sure that the sales or signup funnel that they see matches my gift offer as much as possible.

Also, by not mass sending these – I usually don’t do more than 25 a day, which over a membership of 250% more than that – it means that I’m only hitting a fraction of a percent of membership base a day, in the hopes to not upset the people (or admins) by over-abusing the system.

Also, the fact that I myself am upgraded shows that I put my money where my mouth is, and am not trying to scam people into spending money where I myself won’t.

This has really worked great for me and with a little out-of-the-box thinking, I’m sure you can do the same – or better!

    Thank you very much for your insight thinking here.
    I am sure that most of the members of your team or teams if you have more than one, will be going and trying to do the same as you are. Though to be fair we are all at different stages with how we run things.

    But saying that, it is the what I call forward thinking, and just as you say outside the box, which is what make the difference. Plus you are showing us all that it must be a good way to go. As it will then be another string to the bow.

    So once again Issac, Thank you.
