How Are You Building Your List?

I'm trying to build my own mobile marketing list and have one strategy so far, but that is going to take some buy in from businesses that I'm pitching my service to.

I'm wondering how people are building their list on their own?

I tried posting on craigslist, but my account got put on hold for having a phone number in the post. I guess they don't like my shortcode in the post.

Any thoughts are much appreciated.

Thanks.

    Build yourself a website of you don't have one and up a lead capture form on there, it works really well.

    Where did you post it on craigslist? Remember it is community moderated. The community thought ti was spam.

    Are you going to sell blasts on your list? During other discussions on here it seemed that the best ideas to build your list were the following.

    1. Make flyers with the sign up and a start date say a month from now.
    2. Take the small 1/4 or 1/6 page flyers and window drop them.
    3. Take the full page flyers to any place you can post for free
    4. Take the full page flyers to business and offer them a free or at cost blast in exchange for posting the flyer.

    This gives you a chance to up sell them on their own list as well. As a natural conversation will start about sms marketing.

    If sms is all you are selling this can be great. If you sell more some of these conversation will turn into long ones.

    Do you have any examples of flyers you have used in the past to build your mobile list?

    Facebook! it's an awesome way to build a mobile list especially if you know how to create an awesome ad copy.

    Create a Facebook Fan Page dedicated to whatever you're promoting, then capture leads using a service like Aweber to capture leads directly from the fan page, then you can send a message to your leads for them to join your mobile list. Or you can just put a message on your fan page saying "Text xxxxx to xxxxx to join this mobile list" or something.

    Since Facebook can be an extremely viral feature if used right, getting leads will be a piece of cake if your targeting is on point.
