I have been in the online marketing business for several years now and there is always one sector that leaves me cold – email marketing.
I was fully trained in the subject during my Wealthy Affiliate tutorials but I’ve never taken to it as it seems rude and intrusive to me!
But I’ve received several requests for a List Dominion review from regulars to this site. I wasn’t overly excited by the prospect of completing this review but it did offer a slight change in direction for me…
Email Address Mailing List
If I had to guess I would say that I come across at least five new email address mailing list programs a week!
I’m fully aware that some internet marketers make good money out of them…but they’re still not for me.
The all seem to promise the world and then offer very little when it comes down to ‘the guts’ of the program.
What makes List Dominion stand out from the crowd?
Is it really all it’s cracked up to be?
Let’s take a closer look…
List Dominion Review
This product was created by Jeff Baxter and Abdulmagid Zanati and it aims to improve the success you have with your mailing lists ( obviously! ).
Apparently if you jump on-board with them they can teach you techniques that will earn you over $16,000 a month.
Now this is where most offers fall down with me – why highlight a precise amount ( $16,490.95 in this case ) if you know damn well you cannot back it up?
But this is the only downside to the overall pitch of List Dominion – the sales page was not as over-hyped as one might expect.
I decided to purchase the product due to it being on a dime sales system at the moment. These types of systems usually cap at about $20 but I managed to grab it for $10.
The low price was unfortunately backed up by a few typical upsells but this is normal practice in the marketing world. I ignored them and carried on deeper into the product.
Inside the product I was confronted with a decent enough website that housed a professional enough welcoming video. Below this video there were two links:
- A link to my awesome training
- A link to a Facebook group
I decided to check out the level of training available first…
#1 List Building Training
This first module of training seemed to be geared towards teaching me how to promote List Dominion through email marketing – basically doing their dirty work for them!
You are even taught how to set up a subdomain on the main List Dominion website – sort of like a private landing page or squeeze page!
The next two videos explain what Solo Ads are and how to buy them via a Facebook group and how to create tracking links.
#2 Let’s Hit Facebook!
This part of the training managed to teach me a few tricks that I had not come across before and I was quite pleased by this!
I’d only paid a tenner for the program and this information was well worth that!
But then the training started to center on Facebook and this turned me off quite a bit. I’m not a fan of Facebook at the best of times – the sooner it falls into the internet sea the better in my book!
But this training was trying to teach me to market List Dominion to my Facebook followers. That’s right – my friends and family members!
I don’t know about you but my friends and family would have no problem in throwing me off a cliff if I started spamming their timeline!
I then thought long and hard about how many of the people on my friends list would actually have some sort of interest in this product…none really!
This module then moves on to cover building relationships with fellow niche marketers and jazzing up your Facebook profile.
All of this information was pretty good and well researched but the idea of marketing this product to my friends and family…no, no, no!
#3 Money in The Mailing List
This section was made up of 3 rather informative videos on how to build up your mailing list and make money through it.
It starts off by training you how to spot the buyers within your mailing list – you don’t want a list full of freeloaders after all right? You want your list to trust and believe in the things you are saying so that they will eventually move to purchase.
I then ended up on a video I struggled to understand – I know jack about consultancy after all!
They kept on telling me I should be aiming towards charging $20,000 in consultancy fees – it sounds nice but they lost me at the beginning of this video module ( unfortunately! ).
I quickly moved onto the final module before I got even further adrift on the subject. This final video supplied me with great insights into closing deals over the phone.
Only one problem though – I only perform marketing in the digital domain!
My first impressions of this product were not all that good – I felt I had come across it’s type many times before.
But once I had got past the sleazy upsells I encountered some pretty solid techniques that I had not come across before – I really enjoyed the learning process.
This is not a scam – it can work for you if you put the time and effort in.
However, this is not the marketing direction I would like to go and I have a feeling the majority of you will feel the same way!
If you are looking to learn something new on email marketing for the low price of $10 then go for it – this is definitely worth your time.
