Building an email marketing list is something that every online entrepreneur needs to do if he or she wants to make money. It is essential to have this knowledge. Taking the knowledge that you have, and doing something with it, is the other half of the equation.
There are many things you can do to increase the number of opt-ins for your mailing list. Some of them are quite easy! Your creativity is your only limitation when doing this. In this article, we will look at email list building techniques that have worked for others, and will most likely work for you as well.
A Joint Venture
Put together a joint venture with another Internet Marketer. Take steps to ensure that the other marketer will make just as much profit as you will. You need to have a good working process too. Once you’ve built a good and solid relationship with your joint venture partner, ask to borrow his list or ask him to ask his list to join your list too. Because you have established a good working relationship he will trust you.
The product you’ve created together gives his list a reason to trust you. What’s even better is that you’ll be earning more money through the product the two of you have created. This offers everybody a win-win situation. It is possible to buy lists from a variety of places on the Internet. This is definitely a good way to expand your own list quickly. Of course, it’s also great for getting labeled as a spammer and getting the FTC (Favorite, Thumbs up, Comment) all up in your business.
This article is supposed to be about ways to actually build your list but we would be negligent if we didn’t include a warning not to give into temptation of taking a “shortcut” which is simply buying a list from someone else. It’s really better to build a list by your own efforts, and it’s definitely going to be a better profit earner too.
Not all forums are friendly to marketers, and some of them will not allow any marketing of any kind. Just always remember to read the TOS (Terms of Service) of any new forum you are thinking about joining because you do not want to violate them. People who read and appreciate your posts will visit the link in your signature to find out what else you might have to say on the subject and then opt- in in the hopes of getting to those thoughts and opinions. Some people have had great success with buying advertising in forums, so think about that too because it can decrease the time.
If you want to make money on the Internet you need to know how to build your very own list. This is the best way to earn a profit. It hardly means that the process will be simple. Passivity is definitely an option and you could simply publish an opt-in box and hope for good things, but if you want to truly earn a profit, you will put some honest work into your list and use the tips and tricks we’ve outlined here. Time is money, after all, so stop sitting around and get to work!
