How to Tap into People’s Emails and Sell your Products
Let’s get one thing straight… email marketing is only going to work if you’ve got people on your list in the first place.
So, the most important thing for you right now should be learning how to get people onto your email list. When it comes to email marketing as an eCommerce business, there are several tactics that you can use to collect email addresses.
The most powerful method is through giving something like an Ebook for free. This trick does not involve “stealing” people’s emails using apps. Therefore, it is very less likely for people to unsubscribe from your list.
Believe it or not, there is actually some scientific evidence that supports this tactic.
According to Robert Cialdini, on the rule of reciprocity, if you do something for someone with no conditions or expectation of a return favor, and they are more likely to do something for you.
Reciprocity is not a quid-pro-quo exchange, but rather a situation where one person gives something or provides a favor to another person with no requirement in return.
When you send a prospect links to free content, free research, or offer them free advice on a problem they’re facing, you’re taking advantage of the rule of reciprocity.

This tactic has been tried and tested. It works wonders when it comes to attracting potential customers since it’s not spammy, salesy, or dishonest. It’s the same strategy that you use on your blog posts and short videos.
In the internet era, people are growing more resilient to sales people. They don’t want conversations about product benefits and offers. But, they do crave for information and will spend their time reading, watching or listening to content to learn about products that could solve their problems.
But, people do prefer comprehensive content that will cover everything that they need to know on the topic. If it’s about shipping, serious customers want long-form ebooks that will cover everything they need to know to get started.
Here are some reasons why an ebook can be the most convenient way to get people’s emails.
- Most people love ebooks because they’ll save them the time it takes to browse through YouTube and blogs looking for educative content.
- Therefore, you can use Ebooks to educate your customers about any topic they are highly interested in. You can even combine a few blog posts that they are most interested in.
- By providing indepth content found on several blog posts, you’ll be able to deliver your sales pitch in detail.
- You’ll also build your brand credibility by giving information for free to your customers.
- Although ebooks are free, you can also make sales with quality sales pitches on the ebooks.
- But most importantly you’ll get an incredibly large audience in your email list if you offer something valuable that they don’t normally get for free.
And that’s why you need to offer them a FREE EBOOK.
With the right structure, ebooks can also make sales, therefore, hitting two birds with one stone.
How to Structure Your Free Ebook to Generate More Leads
The structure of an ebook is just like a normal book. It has chapters, intros, and everything. However, it’s much shorter and visually appealing with images, lists, graphs and diagrams, etc.

Ebooks is also a wonderful marketing tactic that allows prospects to find you, rather than the other way around. If done correctly, eBooks are an effective strategy for generating relevant leads.
