    What do you mean by "best way" to build an email list?

    Are you referring to traffic methods?

    Or do you mean the actual follow-up process to engage and make sales from your list?

    Or something else entirely?

    In any case, the answer to most of those questions is the same:

    It depends.

    There is often no single best way to do something, and what works best for me or anyone else might not work that well for you because of multiple variables.

    For example, a particular traffic source might work well for building my list but if you serve a different market then my traffic source might not have the right people for your offer or product.

    Regards,
    Daniel

    Have something of value you can give for free (something that goes along with the niche you are in) thru a landing page.

    Hopes this helps.

    Everything on here is good...whats helped me is paid traffic for quick results. But not everyone has a marketing budget to do that with. What is your niche and marketing budget?
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[10589086].message }}
  • Obviously you should give some more info such as budget and niche ?

    If it's MMO I would highly recommend either creating and launching VALUEABLE info products.

    or creating/buying a good funnel and order solo ad traffic

    There is no real best way..

    One of the ways often that people use is to utilize a freebie (such as a free report or something) to entice people to join your list.. (i'm not sure if this is what you were looking for?)

    What's the best way to catch a fish?



    Find a heavily stocked water, and give the fish precisely what they want.

    The more hooks you have in the water, the better.

    Hi! I know that one of the best ways of keeping and maintaining a good online business is having a good and solid mailing list. I suggest you to build your email list with genuinely interested customers and as a result, you will gain a lot more leads who want what you have got. Just do it and you will have more sales for you.

  • There are tons and tons of methods but what you really want is targeted traffic flowing to your squeeze page 24/7/365 no matter what. So if you go for paid ads that will work but when you stop paying traffic stops too, you can use TE's, safelists, viral mailers, banner exchanges, free clasified ads, social media and on and on, but here is the problem like I said once you run a campaign you will get traffic and opt ins, after that the traffic stops and you have to do it all over again. What I sugest is blogging or even better video blogging and article marketing why?? Cos you publish 1 post on your blog and you will get traffic from it tomorrow, next week, next year or even after 5 years, be creative, stick to your niche, blog daily, bare in mind it takes some time to see the results but its so worth it-do it once and collect opt ins forever pretty much. Also when you publish a post on your blog MAKE sure you share it on your G+ profile, google will love you and your blog for this!

    What's wrong with so many members... We would all like to see a cleaner more organised Main Forum and to help "sub forums" have been setup covering certain topics but instead of helping many of you act like you don't know?

    Are you that desperate to get a few clicks on your sig that you can't do the right thing and either report people posting in the wrong forum or at least telling them to open their eyes and start threads where they belong....

    Come on man, it's our duty to keep the forum clean and relevant...

    I would say: If you could make a product and capture the emails from those who buy then you have a strong email list

    There are many ways to build it, but IMHO, the most effective way is by taking actions that help you to build a "Buyers" list:

    - Launching Your Products (With Affiliates).
    - Doing JV Backend Bonuses.
    - Promoting Affiliate Products and Collecting Leads Through Your Bonuses.

    Just my 2 cents.

    To build a strong email list you need to learn to take advantage of every single opportunity you have to convert someone into an email subscriber. This mindset needs to extend throughout all of your activities.

    There are many methods to make your list grow!
    In my opinion, here are some the most important:
    - you must create a remarkable content;
    - you can create multiple email subscriptions types;
    - use different social media resources to promote your offer;
    - leverage your YouTube channel;
    - link to offers that capture email sign-ups throughout your website;
    - promote an online contest.
    There are also many other ways to do that, but you can try at least the main!
