Providing Value Thread #2 (Building Your List)

by mrfarshay 2 replies
Why do you need a list, what exactly is it and how is it done?

Well first off building a list is the most important part of internet marketing. The reason you need a list is that your collecting names & emails from potential customers. This allows you eliminate the stress of constantly looking for customers day after day. Once your list is big enough you can simply send out an email of something your promoting and get sales.

1. You need an auto-responder service. Personally I will recommend Aweber or GetResponse.

2. You will need a capture page. The higher your page converts the better. This means if you sent 100 visitors to your page, what is the # of visitors that would enter their name & email.

3. You need to use both free and paid advertising techniques to get new subscribers daily. Here's some of the ways that I build my list

A. Buy solo ads - Someone with a list will send your capture page link to their list. A certain amount of those people will click and opt into your list.

B. Run FaceBook PPC ads - Personally I like to use a fan page and redirect traffic to the page and have them opt in directly on FB.

C. Join Mini-Events & Co-Host events. You share leads so they are not as valuable but you can get way more for less $. Many co-host events are $350 for 1,000 guaranteed subscribers coming from people's list. You get a lot of bang for you buck.

D. Free sources I use YouTube, SEO and organic search

Well if anyone responds to the post I'll go into more detail. Hope this helps a bit for the average marketer.

    When somebody opts in on your squeeze what happens next? A follow up message?

      When someone opts in on one of my squeeze pages they are either redirected to a gift page or a sales page depending on which squeeze I am using. At that point my lead either buys from me or downloads a free gift.

      Also when they return to their inbox yes they will have a follow up email. Normally I set up my first 12 emails to focus on building a relationship and minimal sales pitches. Then I'll kick in the next 10 emails which will power sell to close the deal.
