[00:20] In this episode, Igor unveils the path to steady progress and long-term triumph and navigates through the challenges of PayPal locks and the dangers of email spam, guiding you towards a sustainable and resilient ascent to greatness.

[02:05] The Problem With PayPal:

  • A few years ago, I experienced a fantastic moment with PayPal. I launched a new offer and made around $10,000 in just three days. The feeling was incredible, with constant PayPal notifications on my phone.

  • However, this success led to a spike in income, which caused PayPal to freeze my account on day four. They questioned the source of my sales and decided to put a 10% reserve hold on my earnings for six months to mitigate potential fraud risks.
  • The reason behind this cautious approach is that rapid growth can be risky. Some businesses experience skyrocketing success only to face bankruptcy due to unforeseen mistakes.

  • For merchant processors and banks, sudden high revenue can lead to increased chargebacks and refunds, which they want to avoid.

[05:20] Advice For Email Marketers:

  • For email marketing, it’s also wise to adopt a gradual and consistent approach. Rather than trying to skyrocket your subscriber list overnight, start with a lower number and gradually increase it.

  • Maintaining a consistent mailing volume helps build a good sender reputation and protects you from potential spam complaints.

  • Remember that you don’t need to spend all your money on traffic generation right away. Create a plan to gradually invest in traffic and increase lead generation over time.

  • Building a stable and sustainable list is more important than achieving a massive list size in a short period.
