I’m sure you often hear people talking about List Building. List Building is a huge part of having an online business. I’ll be honest with you.It’s something that puzzled me for a very long time and it’s still something I have to perfect and continue to work on. You’ve most likely heard of people out there with lists in the thousands…. incredible. So, wouldn’t you like to have people on your email list you’re able to send an email to ? What would you intend to send somebody on your list ? Perhaps a business opportunity. Perhaps something that will help them with their current business activities. What one really wants to do is to earn others trust. I’m sure you would agree that nobody wants to constantly be sold to. It’s horrible to think that someone is just simply trying to take your money. There’s no guarantee that people on your list will open the emails that you send. That’s why as I said it’s important to earn people’s trust.
So, what’re some ways to build a list? There are several ways that we often read about. A common example is the use of a capture page. Something I often use and of course many others is social media.If you can offer somebody something for free via social media, then it may lead to them becoming part of your list. I have used several autoresponder services, for example, Aweber and Get Response. My favorite would be Aweber. It’s very simple to use and there’s no need to be in expert.
By using an autoresponder, one can set up and organize a follow-up series.People will continue to receive an email from you perhaps every second day or third day. I have recently heard of some very successful people who send every single day. That surprises me.It was something I always learned wasn’t wise. People would perhaps get sick of receiving your emails.
Like most things, there is pretty much always a bill to pay when using an Autoresponder. But,MailChimp is free up until you have an email list of 1000 people.At this level though, MailChimp does not provide any support. AWeber is absolutely brilliant when it comes to support, and I can’t say this enough.
So are you building a list? If not, take a free trial with Aweber for 30 days. As I said, Aweber is brilliant and they support you with questions you have. They are there via chat to help you and any email you sent to support they reply very quickly.
All the best with List Building.
