Dear forum,

quick question, without the need to go into crazy specifics:

AFTER the opt-in, when the initial email follow-up sequence starts...

... I hear many email marketers suggest to provide lots of value upfront, introducing yourself and your brand, slowly warming up the list, ...

... While I see many email marketers going - more or less - into hardcore pitch mode: pitch email, pitch email, pitch email, ..., new offer pitch, pitch, pitch, ...

So from your experience, what's the best approach to recoup the investment within a week or two? (I assume that's most people's/buyer's goal here)

I'd appreciate if you answer from experience only, and not from a pov of "what feels right".

Thank you very much in advance!

Stay awesome,
Tim

From experience and I have a lot of it... Promote, promote, promote... If you want to add value, that’s cool too and it’s good for the long term success of your list, but your first goal should be to get that traffic profitable ASAP.. you can always mail them a video giving them tips.. but right away you need to get them what they want, and they want to buy buy buy..
added later
Also you don’t really need to warmup leads of the traffic is good they come to your list already warm. If it’s crap traffic, no amount of warming will get those people to buy.. now this is based on low ticket offers $50 and below. Higher price points can require warming

I have found both strategies to work. I have also found that different niches respond differently. The health niche for a specific disease my respond differently than a health niche for general nutrition. You should by all means REST TEST TEST. Never stop testing in any marketing communication.

You should focus on building your list. Do not expect sales. Although sales do happen sometimes on the first contact. There is an old saying among direct response marketers that "Money Loves Speed" When someone opt-ins to your list, get after it. Don't delay. Whether your strategy or tactic is to begin throwing offers at them or if it is to deliver value and then ask for the sale; you have to follow up FAST.
