A question that many new internet marketers ask is "How do I build a list?" Egypt "How do I build a responsive list, a list that I can market to over and over again?"
Building a responsive list of subscribers is the most important thing that you can do for your business. A responsive list is gold for your business.
But, how do you build this kind of list?
Here are 7 tips for building your phenomenal, responsive subscriber list.
1. Make sure that what you are offering people are looking for
It does not matter what you are selling, if you do not have a market for your product you will never make any money. Do your keyword research to make sure that there are buyers in your particular market.
2. A highly converting landing page
The internet is very competitive. There are millions and millions of sites out on the web so yours needs to look good and it needs to look professional. You want every person who sees your landing page to sign up to your list. You can create your own landing pages or squeeze pages using an HTML editor or you can purchase one and edit it to fit your business. Either way is effective but you must remember to test, test and test. This is the only way you will know if your squeeze page converts.
3. You need an opt-in form on your landing page
The only purpose of your squeeze page should be to get subscribers. Your landing page should not sell anything. It should be compelling because you only have a few seconds to get someone's attention. Your opt-in form should ask for your visitor's email address and name and nothing more.
4. You need to offer a valuable free gift in exchange for your visitor's name and email address
Your free gift should be an eBook that will provide value to your subscriber. It should provide information that is relative to the subject of your squeeze page. Your visitors will not sign up to your list if you do not follow through and over-deliver. Make sure that your free gift is relative to the subject matter of your site.
5. Use An Auto Responder
An auto responder is software that will manage your list. This is how you will capture your visitor's name and email address and also what you will use to communicate with them.
6. Picture of Yourself
You need to put a photo of yourself on your website or thank you page or both. People like to see who they are communicating with and this makes your message more personal.
7. Do not sell anything on your landing page
I can not stress this enough. Your landing page should only exist to capture the names and email addresses of your visitors and should not sell anything.
