Building An Email List

October 25th, 2007

EMAIL LIST MARKETING

Email Marketing is one of the major tools for promoting your products and services on the ‘Net.  Only generic or paid search engine traffic, like Google AdWords, produce more business.

All the top Internet gurus use this method in their marketing mix.

So, if you want to get a piece of the Internet pie, you will have to learn how to do effective email marketing.

If you are a member of a network community, you already have some knowledge in building friends’lists.  Most MLM affiliates use this as their recruiting ground.

You should be aware though that membership sites can not sustain the market for relationship sponsoring since most people come to these sites with their own programs. And there are all sort of restrictions on contacting people with promotional mail.

To survive on the ‘Net you need to build a customer list, a prospect list or get actual visitors from generic searches.

OPTIN FORM
The basic tools for email marketing is an opt-in form and an auto-responder.  You can place your opt-in forms on your web-pages or preferably on splash pages for each product or service you promote.

RESPONDER
The auto-responder allows you to place a series of email messages or broadcast messages to your list on a regular basis. You don’t need a website to use an auto-responder and there are many free ones you can use to get started.

You won’t get a lot of responses in these forms unless you already have a high traffic site or do a lot of paid promotion.

So what do you do in the meantime?

(1) I don’t have a list

You can buy fresh opportunity leads to get the ball rolling. Always get these people to opt-in to your lists again to make sure you are not accused of spam.

To get people to opt-in, you will have to offer them something valuable like an eBook, CD’s or Newsletter that you promote.
 
(2) I don’t have a website, just my affiliate URLs.

The majority of Affiliates on the ‘Net do not have a website, but if you are serious about your Internet future you should consider getting a Domain Name to start with.  There are a great many Free Hosting Sites on the web you can use until you can afford a paid one.

Just know that you will never get search engine traffic until you have your Domain Name listed in the search engines.

(3) Sounds too complicated - What else can I do outside of my   community promotion.

You can use free email services like Yahoo or Gmail to start building lists or groups. In this way you can have direct contact to your lists.
 So start or join a group OR JUST USE YOU EMAIL ACOUNT TO BUILD A LIST.

You won’t have an auto-responder to sequence your messages on auto-pilot but you can do a lot of broadcasting to these people on your lists.

What about Safe-lists and Downline  Builders?

If they work for you, fine.  But I never saw the logic in sending messages to people who don’t read them.  The viral down-line builders we recommend all require members to visit your web pages. You may not get a lot of sales but the traffic will build up your presence on the ‘Net.

RESOURCES

There are a lot of free autoresponders available but they limit your uploading leads and messages;  plus you need to have a web site to use them.  For the starting price of a good paid responder service, you can get one at CMU7,  plus training, web pages and make money in the process.
