Noob List Building - How To Use Follow-Ups To Get Your List Started
Perhaps the biggest problem for a noob starting list building is to get your list started and, inevitably, it is slow going at first.
After a few days, you may have 10 subscribers and think, "what's the point of emailing just 10 people" and give up. I see this happen time and time again and it used to happen to me too.
Here's What You Need To Do
Create your basic squeeze page and then insert a series of automatic follow-up messages, one email to be sent every one or two days and for a total of two weeks.
Yes, it will take you a little time to set up, maybe an afternoon, but it will be worth it.
Keep the emails short and write them yourself. You can link to other sites and be helpful if you want.
If you want it even easier, just use some PLR content. It's better than nothing and you can insert your promotional links at the bottom of each email.
Now Concentrate On Traffic Building
Because you've created these automatic follow-ups, that means that you don't have to think about making one-off broadcasts to your list.
You can now concentrate 100% on building traffic to your list. The more traffic the better. I suggest article marketing especially.
Why? If you know your niche then these articles will be easy to write. If you don't know your niche then article marketing will teach you everything about your niche. Either way, you gain.
After two weeks, you should have at least 100 subscribers in your list. If you have an OTO set up (just redirect to a Clickbank offer if nothing else in the beginning) then you can easily make a couple of sales during that period too.
