How do you build your list?

12 replies
I haven't really found any good articles on here about HOW to actually build a good email list. There is a lot of info about how to set up the sales funnel and how to use an autoresponder and all of that, but really haven't found out a lot about effective strategies people use to actually build a targeted email list.

Would love to hear actual successful strategies.

    Hi TaxMaster,

    Ok, so I see you seem to know the technical parts of setting it up... good!

    So this is the how to build a targeted list:

    1. You have to define a niche or a target market you want to serve first.

    You want to go narrow... ex. if you target a niche such as weight loss that is to
    wide. Go 1 step narrower ... Weight loss for women ... 1 step narrower: Weight loss for women over 50.

    Now you are on to something... you can find where those women over 50 hang out and get to read about what they struggle with the most.

    It will be much easier to write effective emails and make an optin bribe for them, when you know what they are struggling with the most.

    So now you are targeting a targeted group of people with a problem they desperately want to get solved. Hope that makes sense.

    2. Landing Page with optin bribe that solves their most pressing problem

    Ok, so in the example above... you might find out that women over 50 wanting to
    lose weight want to do it, because they are afraid to get a heart attack ( I'm just making all this up to make a point... you go and do the research)

    If so... you can easily put up a landing page where you give away a free report
    specific to their challenge.... " The best way for Women over 50 to avoid heart problems and lose 10 pounds in 40 days "

    Hence... you got a targeted subscriber!

    Best regards from
    Ole

      This is very helpful and very detailed. I would do the same thing. Create a landing page specifically targeted for your niche audience, and get the to input their email address with a free offer of an ebook, webinar, or helpful article.

    Another way is to subscribe to top marketers and see how they communicate with you. Learn by observing.

    You can build up an email lists by using your gated assets like offering free eBooks ,webinars etc. But make sure the access to these assets are only made possible when a visitor enters his/her email address. Through this you will build up genuine organic list that will last for a longer period of time. But of course before that you have to work on your content representation so that people find it attractive to proceed further with your business.

    Cheers-James

      2,000 leads a day? Right...

      Anyways - the advice given by some folks in here are great - but only work if you follow through on it.

      The real question is:

      Do you have an autoresponder?

    I would suggest buying a course that will help you do this. There are many free ones, which can be just as good. But I believe that those who pay, pay attention. So, purchase one. Make sure it's from someone who knows what their taking about.

    Also, I've built up many different substantial lists over the years using opt-in squeeze pages. By offering free products or information. It's on thing to build your list, but it's another thing altogether to know how to engage with your list to make sales. So getting a product to teach you with both the building the list and engaging with your list would be ideal.
