List Building...the Easy Way

Nov 14, 2007
We all know how important it is to build a list. But after you build the list, then what do you do?

Well, you have to spend some time reviewing various affiliate programs and pick the best ones to promote to your list. Then you have to compose emails to your list and try to convince your readers to purchase the product that you are promoting, so that you will get a commission. Then you have to answer questions from your list, and sometimes deal with complaints. This can be a lot of work, especially if you are just starting out.

Now suppose you could build a list and have someone else manage it for you? Someone who would find the best products, send the emails to your list and deposit the money into your paypal account. Sounds great, you're thinking, but how much would that cost? Well, suppose you could find someone who would do it for free?

Don't we all wish that we could let someone else do all the work and we could just sit back and collect profits?

Well, now you can do just that. I have recently discovered a program, which was developed by a marketer whose name I'm sure you'll recognize. It's the laziest way to build a list that I've even seen. It's a whole new concept in list building, which is incredibly clever and innovative and creates a win-win situation for everyone. Here's how it works in a nutshell...

You simply get people to join a free giveaway site through your link, where the members receive a free gift every month. The gifts could be ebooks, software, videos or audios and are top quality products. Why wouldn't they join!

In addition to the free gifts, weekly promotions are also sent to that group for other products, and YOU get paid when someone purchases a product! The members you bring in that one time, forever get linked to you by a special code which doesn't expire. Unlike most affiliate programs, you aren't sharing your list for a one -time promotion, you are sharing it for weeks and months and years of promotions.

You get paid for these sales, which are made by someone else. How cool is that? Over the course of a year, 52 promotions will go out to all of the members, including the people that you've sent.

Hmm, I can hear you saying...why would someone do this? What could be in it for him? Well, periodically, he will send out his own promotion, but I can honestly say that I have been a member for a few months now and very few of those promotions have been sent.

How do you send traffic, you might wonder? The same way you send traffic to any site that you might build.

* If you have a list already, you can send a mailing to them and explain the benefits. Why wouldn't they join to get some top-notch free monthly gifts?

* You can write articles such as this one. It's free, it's easy and I have found article writing to be a fantastic way to drive traffic to my sites.

* You can set up a blog.

* You can use pay per click ads or ezine ads.

* You can join a service such as listbandit which allows you to send out free ads to the members after you join.

There are endless ways to drive traffic. You have to figure out what works best for you.And of course, this doesn't mean that you should never build your own list. This is just another income stream and one which is very easy to set up.
