1ShoppingCart’s New Features

I am so glad I didn’t jump on the Infusionsoft bandwagon and instead stuck with my trusted 1ShoppingCart account! I’ve always maintained that 1ShoppingCart is a great all-in-one ecommerce system; you can do so much more with the system than most people realize.

And these past couple of weeks I’ve been thrilled with some of the new features they’ve been rolling out:

1. Web Forms — at first I was wishing for the basic HTML ones to come back, but now that I’ve created a few forms, I’m really liking the new features.

  • For one thing, it stores the form, so you don’t have to recreate it each time you want to add the code on your website (or store it in a Notepad file, which I’d been doing).
  • It also now gives you options for creating your form, such as adding a header, footer, or form text. And you can choose what color you’d like your form to be too.
  • You can choose whether to restart an autoresponder series, or not, if someone signs up via the same form again.
  • And, most importantly, it now tracks the conversions of your forms. You can see how many times your form was viewed, and how many signups you had.

2. Broadcasts — there are now additional broadcast options too; these seemed to sneak in! One day they weren’t there, and the next day they were. But they really are going to make your marketing super-targeted and smart.

Tags — this is something that Infusionsoft has always boasted about; now 1SC gives you this option too. You can apply tags either via the web form or manually to a contact so you can always track what they do once they come into your system. For example, previously if I automatically removed a contact from an autoresponder based on an action they took, I would lose the point at which they entered the system. Now I don’t need to worry about that if I automatically assign a tag to them when they fill out a web form.

Segments — this is basically another new area of the broadcast section. I’ve always been able to create custom filters for my contacts, but had trouble with sending broadcast to this select group. Now I can create a custom filter (segment) and choose that option direct from the broadcast screen.

Let me give you an example: if I wanted to do a promotion about Program A, I had to set it up so that when someone registered for Program A, they were automatically removed from my main Mailing List so that I wouldn’t email them again about registering for Program A. That was easy enough to do. But once the promo period was over, I then had to remember to go and add people who had registered for Program A back into the Mailing List for future mailings. Now all of this can be automated by using Segments.

 I’m sure there’s more upgrades in the works, but these are the main ones I’ve noticed these past couple of weeks and, honestly, I’m thrilled with these!

3 Keys to Building a Profitable E-mail List

The easiest and most effective way to follow up and nurture relationships with your clients and potential clients is to build an e-mail list  of people who have “opted in” and given you permission to send them e-mails.

With a profitable e-mail list you can:

  • Fill your seminars and programs
  • Attract more clients and sales
  • Turn current clients into repeat clients
  • Promote other peoples’ programs that you believe in and earn $1,000?s in affiliate commissions

Here are 3 basic keys to building a successful e-mail list:

First of all, you need to have one in the first place.  That means that you need an e-mail delivery system, which is commonly called a CRM (Contact Relationship Manager).

There are MANY systems to choose from.  I recommend Mail Chimp or Constant Contact if you’re just starting out and don’t have a lot of funds to work with.  I recommend 1ShoppingCart if you want to be able to process credit cards online.  Once you have 500 people on your list and are making $100,000 or more in revenue, it’s time to consider switching to Infusionsoft, which is more pricey but much more advanced.

You also need an Opt In Page where people can sign up to be on your list.  When people opt in, their contact information gets entered into your CRM automatically.

Next, it’s important to nurture relationships with people on your list by offering them something of value, other than sales, sales, and more sales.

Your list is a community of people who have put their trust in you.  They’ve trusted you with their name and e-mail address.  Since many people change their physical address more often than their e-mail address nowadays, that’s actually a generous show of trust.

They’ve trusted you to provide them with valuable information and not to sell their contact information or spam them.  Honor that trust by sending them articles (like this one), helpful tips, or inspiring quotes.

One of my colleagues runs an auto repair center, and he realized that his clients didn’t want to learn about auto repair (that’s why they hired him) so he just sends them funny quotes, comics, and stories that have nothing to do with auto repair but make them laugh.

Finally, you need to continually build your e-mail list by having new potential clients opt in.  Focus on attracting your tribe of ideal clients, not just anyone.  That way, the people who join your list will be more likely to actually invest in your products and services.
