Fast And Easy List-building

Dec 27, 2007
Today's subject is one that I get asked all the time - how can I build a list quickly and easily?

Building a list is easier than you think.

There are very simple techniques used to build your list.

These three tactics will help you to build your list quickly:

Make a "squeeze page". While everyone knows that squeeze pages work, not many people use them. It does take some brass to tell readers, "You can't see it until I see your e-mail address!" If you use a squeeze page, I promise you will get more subscribers and a great list. Check out my squeeze page at www.rayedwardscopy.com. Even though I don't offer so much as an ethical bribe, people still want to opt in. My conversion rate for this page is a healthy 38%.

"Ad swap" with other list owners. If you have an e-zine, find other e-zine advertisers and offer to run each other's ads. If you (or they!) don't run ads, contact them. Ask if they would be willing to promote your newsletter while you promote theirs. Simply write a couple of lines advising your readers to check out the new newsletter you just found. Don't forget the link! This is one of the simplest, most effective ways to build your list.

Look for opt-ins through forum postings. You can post good content to forums. Many forums will allow you to add text to your signature line. Try something simple, like "To get my 'Seven Tips on List Building', click here". That link leads readers directly to your opt-in page. Make sure you have a decent ethical bribe to offer - a special report, audio clip, video clip, a .pdf, even free software. Don't subscribe to any forums? Now may be the time to start! All you need is twenty minutes a day. Use that time to check out ten forums, add quality posts, answer any questions, and include your signature line link. This really works - I get new subscribers every day from this method, and I don't even have time to post to forums anymore.
