What are some good programs teaching how to build lists?

19 replies
Hello All,

I'm a newbie here and all I keep reading is that building a good list is the key to success. So, I was wondering if there are any courses, guides, etc. that teach a strategy about building lists. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Matt

    Your autoresponder will take care of a lot of the technical issues with setting up your list so I'd suggest going over the videos they have.

    List building really isn't that hard...

    Pick a niche market and find out their WORST problem

    Create something that solves that problem (ebook, video, interview etc)

    Give that away for free on a squeeze page that has an attention grabbing headline and some bullet points and tells them to enter in their details

    For immediate profits either redirect to an affiliate offer that solves some additional problems or create a low price info product that gives them some additional solutions to start getting them in your customer list

    Then spend some money on solo ads and pay other (targeted) marketers to email their list promoting your free item.

    Once you have a decent size list you can start promoting other products and do cross promotions (adswaps) to continue to grow it.

    That pretty much sums up a lot of the list building courses out there and if you follow that you will build a list very quickly. I'd advise against most of the "free" methods as oftentimes they take too long for you to see the necessary successes in order for you to stick with it.

      Reed: Thanks so much for the info and I love how clearly you explained everything. I currently have a website which sells a frequency outline for the rules tested on the new york bar exam essays and I will implement the free ebook strategy to entice customers.

      Thanks again,

      Matt

      This is some really high quality info Reed. Thanks for the share and I highly appreciate it.

      I am in the midst of building my list. I want to get it HUGE!

    I recommend Jason Fladlien's "7 Super Simple List Building Tactics".

    Also, Ryan Deiss' "Ultimate List Building System" is very good aswell.

    I'd recommend one called "simple list building" (search for it on google)
    It was recently sold with MRR and it was created by 3 well known and
    very successful internet marketers/warrior members.

      Reed is right. That's pretty much what every list-building couse I've seen have been about.

      If you're going for the IM-niche, you can use Safeswaps for finding both partners to do solo ads with and adswaps. This forum also has a section for that.

      You can look around this forum to find ideas on what to give your list. Look for what people are asking for frequently on the forums

      Remember to add value to your list, so it doesn't become unresponsive.

    You're on the right path, list building is key to long-term success...

    And I've tested this with one of my offers. I took out the squeeze page and started driving traffic direct to my sales offer. 1% conversion. And the other 99% left, most likely never to be seen again (unless I do re-targeting). But with my squeeze page in tact, I can convert 5-7%, most over time.

    So anyway, there's a ton of WSO on the site, search and invest in a few. But realize that building a list is all about your ability to drive traffic, so I recommend you get good at driving traffic to your site(s) so you can build your list.

    Hi Matt

    Blatant no cost ad if you're interested.
    I found a great free book written by a remarkable couple of IM marketers in Oz. You can get this List Building - Fast and Furious book free, by dropping by my site. I get no payment. It's just a great book, specially for no money.
    It helped me a lot when I needed it, so I'm happy to share.
    Cheers and good luck.

    a good place to start is list joe, it lets you mail up to 5,500 people every 5 days? another good one i use is micro email ads, you don't get loads of emails in your inbox, so that's always helpful.
    There's loads more on my site, check it out, the affiliate money link
    (i'm new to this so it won't let me put links in, sorry)

    Hope this helps?

    Ryan Deiss's list building product is a good one.

    But list building is largely a by product of good marketing generally. Your list grows with your traffic.

    Here's a mistake i did back then:

    I created a good looking opt-in page.

    Attached an enticing giveaway.

    Thank you page was an affiliate offer.

    And then i just continued sending information and offers through my newsletter.

    WHICH I REALIZED NOW... WAS WRONG!

    Your list will not want to read information from the email itself. Its just plaintext which is BORING. Always give them a sneak peak and then link them to your blog/website/affiliate offer/etc... This transform my list response tremendously!

    Cheers!
