I want to get in the list building business, help please

7 replies
After marketing for a couple of weeks, I came to realize that when people say it's in the list, they're not lying..

I'm sort of lost though, I see that companies like aweber & get response offer templates. I was wondering if these sites come with everything? Like If I wanted to offer a free ebook, could I do this through aweber, or am I going to have to build that my self?


Another thing, should I wait till I have a good 300-400 subscribers before I start blasting emails away?

    Yes you could do that, but I recommend creating your own squeeze page, and put your aweber form in there.

    aweber gives you simple form code that you can insert in any template that you like.

      Thanks

      After doing some research I found a lot of information on this..

      Sorry for making a thread, got anxious..

      I was looking at my Ezine stats when I realized that I am getting hundreds of clicks... This goes to waste because only a few of them actually buy the product; It would be much better to offer a free sample and get a subscriber for a long time. Maybe instead of 1 sale per article, I can make 4-5.

    First, never "blast away". That will result in unsubscribes faster than my prom date slipped out of her prom dress.

    Having a list is like having a girlfriend in high school. You must impress her, woo her, and shower her with gifts before she will...

    If you are not impressing your list member with great info and freebies, then why would they trust you enough to give you money?

    Oh and to answer your question, why wait? Set up your autoresponder to start mailing subscribers from day one. It doesn't matter if you have 1 or 1 million on your list. Treat them the same.

      I had a great laugh with this reply!!

      I agree, get your autoresponder working and provide value to your customers.
      If you are selling all the time people will unsubscribe very fast - I for one do this immediately if I only get sales copies and no value.
