How to Build a List that gives you money forever?

Recently I surveyed my subscribers and one of the survey questions was “How Big Is Your List?”

 

50% said that they don’t have a list!

So, I decided to give you few basics you need to start building an email list and I believe this will help most of you out there.

How many times have you heard that your list is your asset?

Money is in the list.

Having a responsive list is having an ATM machine in your home.

Yet, many online marketers are ignoring this basic principal but want get rich online.

Can you make money online without a list? Absolutely.

You can do that by selling a bunch of affiliate products, but the problem is you have no leverage you have just traded your job to another one.

When you do this there is absolutely no way you can go back to the people who “buy stuff” and sell to them other related products.

Ok, lets get on to our topic

How To Build a List that gives you money forever?

There are a couple of things you absolutely need to have before you go out to build your list.

1. Be clear on your target audience

Building a list is one thing, building a responsive list is another thing. The people in your list need to be people who need the value you are offering.

2. Get an email marketing system like Aweber, Get response – 

You have to select a system that got a good reputation because your list building should follow a good email marketing strategy. When I say good reputation I mean you need to find a system where they have high email deliverability.

I think these two points itself worth a Google + to this post. Please take a moment to click on Google + button above.

Ok, let’s get back on track…

Once you get the above two essential items sorted, then there are many ways you can build a list.

If you have a blog – make sure you have an Opt-in form, where people can put their name and email address

If you sell products online – have a squeeze or capture page before people go to the sales page where they can buy the products.

Building a list is one thing and making money from it is another thing.

You need to market to your list in order to make money. Email marketing is a whole training itself, but in order to get you set up you can start with you can focus on the two points I mentioned above and get cracking.

I recommend MLM Traffic Formula for you to get the full picture on how this list buiding ties with your business.
