No matter what strategies you use to grow your list, you still need some basics to start.
As a matter of fact, it surprises me how many don’t have these essentials before launching into my List Building Promotion Secrets program.
Here are the top items you MUST have before building your list online:
The first thing you must set up is your website, so that your contacts have a place to come to and find you. They also need a place where they can securely leave their email and name.
Your website is practically your main point of contact with your users. So make sure you build a site that is good to look at. That doesn’t mean graphics with lots of bells and whistles, but something that is designed to be professional and effective. It must attract your users enough for them to want to browse around and check out what you have for them. Use pleasant colors and relevant images, a good layout and useful information.
Here’s why getting people on your list is important: most people will not buy from you the first time they see your website. As a matter of fact, some studies show you need to touch them (meaning connect with them) at least 13 times before they consider buying. So you must make sure there is some way by which they can leave their contact information behind before they leave your site.
The next thing is your autoresponder. These are a wonderful way to automate your follow up, when you have to keep in touch with your customers regularly.
You might find it easy to keep in touch with, say 100 people, but when the list gets bigger, it’s simply impossible to do on your own. A good autoresponder and email marketing service can help you tremendously in keeping up with your reminding and emailing.
Once you have these two items in place, you can easily incorporate a good list building strategy, including my List Building Promotion Secrets program, which can get you hundreds of targeted people on your list quickly, while giving you free publicity in the process.
