The best ways to build your list in 2008

by 7 comments
Hi All,

Just wondering in the current evolution of internet marketing what are the best ways to build your list. Can you still offer the free ebook or are visitors tired of this and do they just glaze over at the eyes when they see these offers. What are the best ways to get your list going.

Thanks in advance

    I think free stuffs will always be the main attraction unless you are aiming to build a "paying list". People will not get tired of free stuffs if you provide value to their lives.

      Pretty much the same...

      Probably the "newest" method I can think of is with social media such as twitter

    It probably depends on what you are selling, trading or offering.

    Giving away free ebooks is still very effective. As long as it's still an ebook of quality information. I rarely, if ever, pass up an ebook. ...Probably why I'm on so many mailing lists!

    There is a fine line between being respectful and offensive to one's point of view and in advertisement it can either lead to effective marketing or a lot of trouble. As they say that one man's controversial idea is another man's offensive idea. Sometimes resorting to provocative campaigns are totally worthwhile if they help you to increase your sales and establish a sustainable brand name in the market. But does that only work for big corporations like Apple, Coca-cola to take risks like these? Can small brands or startups consider such tactics for their advertisement plan as well without destroying their amateur brand legacy? These intriguing questions always pop up in my mind and I think that whether is it a good idea to create advertisements that are beautiful and genuine to attract customers which has a greater possibility of going flat with minimum response from the market or to go for calculated controversial ad campaign against your competitor to gain a lot of public attention?

    Hi, I'm quite new on internet marketing and I decided to start writing lots of articles related with psychology/personal development tips niche (non-published). However, after writing 40-50 articles I started to read a lot of niche sites and I'm a little confused that probably my articles are getting too broad for this niche. Since I didn't target it for a specific mental health pathology I believe that I went too broad and will be very hard to monetize. I would appreciate any suggestions
