8 replies
Hello everyone
According to what I learned so far there are only about 10 different elements to list building. what I suggest is that if you might go more into depth with each of these elements , add , remove... etc.

1. Identify your market.
2. Identify their problem.
3. Get Domain & Hosting.
4. Set up simple website.
5. Create free irresistible offer.
6. Set up follow-up message series. (Autoresponder)
7. Get targeted traffic.
8. Let them know how you can solve their problem.
9. Ask for the appropriate action.
10. Build relationships.

Thanks for everyone.

    I don't know if you have forgot it but the first things you have to consider is: there is a market

    Not every problem and not every niche and profitable in fact that you have to conduct a deeper search Google keywords tool and use Facebook insight to find if there are enough people looking for solution

    If you don't do this you will jump in an niche where there is no Market

    Regarding the points 3 and 4 in fact you don't need a simple website, you can set up a one-page website for an example using leadpages, only for giveaway and then set up a follow-up sequences email where you establish a connection

    Also don't be shy to to sell products: most most of the people in the beginning are shy of selling products, and spend a lot of time in neutering the leads

  • The elements you listed are not really the elements need to build a list. They are the elements needed to have a successful business.

    To build a list you just need something that interest a large enough audience to support building the size list you want. Then drive traffic and make an offer in exchange for subscribing. Finally, nurture that list and encourage those already subscribed to share your offerings with others.

      In the practical sense, it's building trust through consistency.

      Pizza Hut built a relationship with me. I accept their emails, they offer me different deals to order my pie from them, sometimes I do, and they honor the deal. I've learned to trust that when they offer me a coupon or discount code, I can use it to save money on a pizza.

      Some marketers have built a relationship with me. One, for example, is an expert on self-publishing. He sends me emails, some with free info, some with things to buy. But always about self-publishing. And he makes no bones about asking me to buy stuff. When he does, he tells me why he's recommending it. He never pretends to be my buddy.

      I think part of the problem is the way writing emails is taught. People say that you should write your emails like you were talking to a friend. And a lot of people take that too literally. What the ones recommending this mean is to write in a conversational style. Pronouns like you, me, I rather than we or us.

      How many sales letters or emails have you gotten where the seller says something like "I just want to help you, or pay it forward, etc."? And then they tell you that you'd better buy now, before they run out of digital copies of the product?

      Another overworked phrase is "moving the free line", first popularized by Eben Pagan. The idea behind this, and it is a good idea when done well, is to deliver so much value in your free stuff that people can't wait to see (buy) the paid stuff. But for this to work well, people have to know that there is indeed a line.

      You build a relationship that says right from the get go that you're going to give them some really cool stuff, and then you're going to ask them to buy some even cooler stuff. Then you deliver on that promise.

      Over time, if people learn you are both consistent and reliable, they will buy more from you, they'll refer other people to you, and they'll defend you in public when you get attacked. When that happens, you'll know you have a solid relationship built with your list members. Even if you aren't on the invitation list for their kid's wedding...

    When building a relationship you should also take into consideration segmenting your list, so that you can properly tailor your message for each segment of your market. All you have to do is to note down every reason people might subscribe to your newsletter and then deliver what they're expecting. A simple and fun way to figure out which audience adheres to which motivation (for subscribing) is to include easy quizzes in your newsletter. This way you'll be able to deliver content that is more relevant to your recipients. This would be the first step. Next thing to do is to outline an engagement plan. Find out what social media platform they prefer and then stalk away: do they praise or complain about certain products or services, what type of content do they usually share? Relationship has to be built through multiple channels, not only through newsletters, that generally don't result in too much dialog.
