List Building - How To Get Other Newsletter Publishers To Mention You Constantly

Aug 9, 2008
Building a list of members or newsletter subscribers is one of the most important things any webmaster should do.

One of the best ways to get free subscribers to your list is to get other publishers and websites to mention you, your site and your products constantly. This will then build a relationship with their own subscribers and when they join your newsletter they will already know a lot about you and be looking forward to receiving your emails.

Because your site or the product you are promoting has been recommended by someone else that has already provided them with information they want the trust will already be in place.

So how do you get other publishers to mention you in their newsletters? Do something news worthy! Hold a contest, claim to know something no one else does, tell publishers a little tip that you learn and that they are free to tell their subscribers as well.

Building a relationship with other publishers is one of the best ways to get a mention or referral especially if you are offering them something that will be beneficial to them and their subscribers.

Another great way to get publishers to mention you is to send them articles, good articles or even an e-book full of articles. Tell the publisher they can send your articles to all their subscribers for free and include an author box that leads to your sign up page.

Build relationships with these publishers and become their friends!

It is also a good idea to tell people who are already subscribed to your newsletter that they can pass the newsletter or e-book on to friends and also use parts or all of your newsletter in articles that they can then submit to various article marketing sites

As long as you are mentioned in the author box you will of course get credit and a link back to your site. This is sort of like article writing, just with your newsletter issue in replace of your article.

If you are providing good solid information in your newsletter or e-book, what ever the topic, you will want to target different people. Offering your information as something that can be passed onto others for free is a great way to get other website owners and marketers to mention you constantly.

It is also important to remember one of the biggest problems I see when people write articles or e-books is that they write about subjects no one in their market is interested in. They just write about whatever they think people want to know about without doing any of the research, which is a huge no no.

Another problem is, publishers who have a market well defined don't then write the content in their newsletters that interests their readers. There is no use having an article on coin collecting and running a business about stamp collecting.

This is easily overcome. Just send out an email asking your readers what they want to read. Also sign up for other newsletters in your market and see what they are writing about.
