Building A List

When it comes to making money online, building a list and developing a targeted subscriber base of active and repeat customers is essential for your success.

 

With a mailing list you can simply create broadcasts that go out to your entire subscriber base with a blend of high quality information and content with promotional-based offers.

 

You can include affiliate promotions for products and services that you’re interested in advertising and gain valuable feedback from your subscribers about what types of products interest them.
Even if you’re a newcomer to online marketing and business, building a list is not difficult. Following are some tips in that regard.

 

Professional Autoresponder

 

By setting up your mailing list with an experienced autoresponder service team, you can be sure your emails will make it to their destination.

 

Professional autoresponder providers offer frequent back-ups of your database, in the event it becomes corrupted or inaccessible.

 

Your autoresponder service provider will also handle all requests to unsubscribe, helps you comply with CanSpam regulations and provides you with the ability to write as many newsletter messages as you wish, and set up the dates and times to deliver them.

 

Keep in mind that it is quite difficult to switch autoresponder providers once you have etasblished a mailing list as your subscribers will have to re-subscribe to your new list.

 

So choose wisely when you begin building a list and choose to create an account with a reputable autoresponder company from the start. There are several highly recommended ones including www.GetResponse.com and www.Aweber.com

 

I recommend www.HostThenProfit.com as it is much more than just an autoresponder.

 

Squeeze Page

 

One of the most important elements of a successful email marketing campaign begins with a well-constructed squeeze page. Your squeeze page is the ‘doorway’ into your email marketing system and if it fails to convert visitors into subscribers, you will struggle to build a list. Your squeeze page needs to be very clean and simple.

 

You want people who visit your website to be given ONE option only – to subscribe to your newsletter.

 

You need to minimize any external links, and really emphasize your opt-in form. Limit the graphics on your squeeze page, so that it loads quickly and doesn’t distract your visitor from your objective – getting them on your mailing list. In order to create an effective squeeze page that encourages visitors to subscribe to your list, consider the different types of incentives that you can offer. When it comes to listing the benefits you need to be clear and concise. I suggest www.AdKreator.com for easy professional squeeze pages without having to know HTML.

 

Build Brand Awareness

 

It’s important to build brand awareness and develop a relationship with your subscriber base, because the more that your list members trust you and the product recommendations that you make, the easier it will be to convert those subscribers into repeat customers.

 

Remember to focus totally on building a list to make income online.

Great Blog Rahimah, provide needed facts to connect with people. Personally, I prefer the Squeeze Page to qualifies the interest than followup (using autoresponder) to my blog.
