New: Subscriber counters & opt-in widgets for the RSS to Email Tool


Two of the top requested features for our RSS to Email tool is 1) a widget to count the number of list subscribers and 2) new designs for our opt-in boxes.

Viola - they're here! For the counter widget, we've created 4 designs to choose from in various colors. If you need an incentive to add it to your sidebar, we've also included your referral link in the image. That means if a visitor clicks on the counter and signs up to RevResponse, you'll earn 20% of their revenue for the first six months of their partnership.

You've worked hard to build your list. Now is the time to show it off. Here's how to add one of these counters to your site:

Step 1: Select the design you want to add from the selection above.

Step 2: Select the colors you'd like to match your site. Keep in mind the "Powered by RevResponse" text cannot be modified. In the first design, you can modify the color of the numbers & "subscribers" text as well as the blue background color. In the second, the green background can be changed as well as the "subscribers" text. For the third, you can select a color for the background color and border. Finally, the numbers in the fourth design can be altered.

Step 3: Email your Account Manager with the information above and they'll send a custom branded file with the code needed to add it. If there are specific hex colors you'd like to include, you can pass them along as well. A quick note if you don't like the colors you get back, you can modify them yourself in the HTML once you have the code.

Almost the same process goes for the opt-in boxes. There are 4 subscriber widgets to choose from. Select the color, size and email your account manager. You can also choose to remove the borders. Note: Sizes are not true to size.
RevResponse subscriber widgets

We'll be adding these to the site momentarily. In the meantime, we wanted to let you know you can start taking advantage of them now.

Switch to RevResponse's FeedBurner Alternative $1,000 Bonus ends Nov. 12th

Almost a million subscribers are in the process of being imported to our RSS to Email tool since we started our Switch to RevResponse bonus last month offering $100 for every 1,000 subscribers imported. Dozens of partners have gained relief from their FeedBurner's woes. One of which has already earned more than $1,500 in one week from our monetization feature.

Switch to RevResponse screenshot

If you're on the fence, here are some of the main reasons our partners have switched to our Feedburner Alternative and why you should as well before our $1,000 bonus offer runs out on Monday, November 12th:

They wanted to stop paying hundreds of dollars for an email campaign service. Our solution is completely free.

They were reassured our service does NOT mandate subscriber re-optins. This means they can safely substitute solutions without losing a single reader.

They liked the idea of previewing their email newsletter before wasting time considering a switch. To see yours in action, visit our Switch to RevResponse landing page.

They realized they didn't have to sacrifice customization or personalization from a free solution. We offer multiple newsletter templates, color customization, flexible delivery and even personalized headers from our in-house designers.

They liked the monetization angle and are already earning more than Google Adsense. To see how GlobalSecurity (one of our first partners to utilize the RSS to Email tool) generated over $30,000 the first year, download our RSS to Email tool case study. And of course, the $1,000 bonus we're offering hasn't hurt!

You might be wondering, "Well, I'm already set up on Feedburner or [insert your alternative here], how much time will it take to move everything over?" That's a great question and we put together a slidedeck you can view below that shows EXACTLY what it will take step-by-step.

INFOGRAPHIC: RevResponse Partners Quarter 3 Results

The third quarter flew by and as we've done previously after Quarter 1 and Quarter 2, we diligently went over every lead and dollar you've generated over the last three months to extract the most useful performance data.

We looked at the most leads and revenue a partner has generated and shared their Quarter 3 records. We analyzed the leads to see where they came from, the types of company sizes selected and the job positions most frequently listed. We also compared our various monetization tools to see which came out on top.

And we didn't stop there. We went even deeper and you'll notice we also shared specific partner data such as how many applicants are actually accepted to our network, where they live and the highest a partner has generated in one month (which is over $23,000 by the way!).

Finally, we featured the RSS to Email tool and how well certain partners are doing by taking advantage of our Referral Program.

I'll be quiet now so you can take a look. We hope it will sprout ideas you can leverage. As always, your feedback and comments are always welcome!

Frustrated with FeedBurner? Switch to RevResponse's RSS to Email tool and Get $100 for Every 1,000 Subscribers

What would YOUR newsletter look like with our tool?

Simply enter your RSS feed below and find out!  

Try it now

We all had high hopes for FeedBurner when it was acquired by the mighty Google back in 2007. Instead of thriving, it has dwindled before our eyes. In the last week alone, FeedBurner announced it will be shutting down its API and then content publishers long and wide lost their statistics. To add insult to injury, they also decided to stop offering Adsense for feeds a couple of days ago as well. The service has been neglected, unsupported and in return, it has become outdated.

RevResponse's RSS to Email Tool:

We're proud of the RSS to Email tool we launched last year. It has everything FeedBurner offers plus a little extra. Some of the features include:

The Ultimate Guide on Monetizing Your Newsletters Effectively

Type in "monetize blog" in Google. How many search results do you think you'll see? Need a hint? Think BIG. Over nineteen million pages will appear. NINETEEN MILLION! It's obviously a popular and saturated topic. In this blog post, we're going to take a different slant and discuss how to monetize your newsletters. It's a subject worth exploring as a supplemental income stream to your site and it can be a motivating factor to start building an email list (something all marketers should be doing!). 1. Demand attention with your subject line Protip: Spend as much time (or more) devising a subject line than writing your newsletter copy. It's the most critical component of a newsletter because it is what determines whether or not the reader will click on the email to continue reading. The best subject lines are concise, interesting and leave you wanting additional information. Mailchimp recently conducted a study where they analyzed the open rates for over 200 million emails. In it they found interesting statistics such as the words to avoid, the proper character length, how personalization affects open rate and they even compiled examples of good and bad subject lines to demonstrate best practices. Take a look at both articles.

Case Study: How GlobalSecurity.org Earned $30,000+ from RevResponse

Are traditional ad modules dead? Is Adsense the only dependable method to monetize your content? The answers to those questions will vary depending on your experience but one thing we can all agree on is that these tools are over-utilized and well...just plain ordinary. People are getting smarter and many of us don't even notice online ads anymore. In fact, less than .08% of visitors click on banner ads. This begs new questions...Are there other effective ways to earn revenue from your assets? Can it be done without "tricking" visitors and by in fact, providing something they would deem valuable? Our mission is to be that solution. In this case study, we highlight GlobalSecurity.org, a leading source of defense, space, intelligence and homeland security. We go through their monetization objectives, how they utilized our RSS to Email tool to collect over 53,000 subscribers and earn more than $30,000 and counting. If you haven't tried RevResponse yet, go ahead and sign up. If you are already a partner, explore our innovative suite of tools to enable you to earn revenue from your RSS feed or confirmation/thank you page. You can also include one of our newest modules such as a lightbox, slider, top toolbar and more. Read the full case study below.

INFOGRAPHIC: RevResponse Partners Quarter 2 Results

We posted our first RevResponse Partners Infographic back in April outlining how you performed in the first Quarter of 2012. It provided data on the highest performing publications, demographic information on the visitors that download those offers, where the leads come from, the most utilized tools and the list goes on. It has received such a positive response from you that we did it again. Below is updated infographic with the latest data from the second Quarter (April 1, 2012 to June 30, 2012). Feel free to share it on your site - we've made it easy by adding the code to embed in the text box below the image. Enjoy!

Top Offer Recommendations for July 2012

Sometimes it's easier to promote an offer if it fell onto your lap instead of searching through the thousands of resources we have in our Offer Catalog or TradePub. That's why I've gone ahead and put together recommendations on our top 5 categories including IT, Marketing, HR, Career, Management & Sales. They are some of the best performing eBooks & white papers in their verticals. Short of promoting it myself, I've even included possible messaging to use with a blog post/mailing, and/or Twitter/Facebook (see visual cues below) to make it even more effortless for you. Feel free to copy and paste them as shown below.

Keep in mind these are available for July 2012 and may expire beforehand. Always doublecheck it is available before you begin. Don't forget to include your personalized URL so the commissions are routed to you properly (I added a reminder for each one below). You can grab it by searching for the pick on the Offer Catalog or by adding your brand group right before "tradepub.com" (replace the 'www') in the links below. E.g. the URL for my blog would be "myasmine.tradepub.com/the-rest-of-the-link-here". Finally, this is the first time we've compiled recommendations for you and it's an experiment. If you'd like them to continue on a monthly basis, let us know in the comments.
