5 Top Tips for Improving Your List Building Efforts

Aug 21, 2008
Building an email list does not have to be difficult to do. As a matter of fact list building should be one of the primary focuses you put on your Internet business. In this article we will take a look at five tips that can help you build your list quickly and effortlessly.

1. I would encourage you to develop a focus on list building. Many businesses have their Internet websites set up with an opt-in form, but it's almost impossible to find.

If you do not want to increase the size of your list then hide it on your website. Otherwise stick it up in the top above the fold where people can find. The easier you make it for people, the more they will be happy to join your list.

2. Promote landing pages in various ways. A landing page is nothing more than an opt in form with some targeted words encouraging people to sign up for your list.

If you focus your website promotion on getting subscribers it means first you send them to your website or blog and you will get more subscribers. Plus it's extremely easy to promote a landing page in various ways including traffic exchanges, article marketing, and so on.

3. Have a preset series of email messages written and stored in an auto responder. When you get a subscriber to your list, they will immediately begin receiving messages from you. This makes building your list very easy for you, and you begin to develop relationships with your subscribers sooner.

4. Take the time to get to know your subscribers on an individual basis. You do this by asking them questions, seeking out input from them, giving them quality information without expecting something in return, etc.

What you will find is some of your best ongoing customers are people that take the time to reply back to you. This ongoing dialogue is one of the best things that can happen in your list building efforts.

5. The final point we want to make is be patient and do not expect your list to grow to large numbers overnight. If you will implement the things that we mentioned here, and be consistent in your effort, you will begin to develop a larger list.

These are five tips for improving your list building efforts. By focusing on developing a quality list you can make a lot more money and secure your future better from it.
