Wow! I can’t believe my last post was in November. What happened to December? Most of you know that my wife and I moved into a new house last August. Well December hit and with trying to find the Christmas decorations and baking cookies I lost time. And to honest, I just got lazy too. 🙂
Well to your chagrin, I am back full throttle.
Today I wanted to talk a little about list building and what is involved with that. I know you have heard the money is in the list. But, how do you build and manage that list. I want to give you a few ideas here.
First of all you have to have a way to manage your list and that takes an autoresponder. An autoresponder compiles your list and allows you to send prescheduled letters or special blasts when needed. I use TrafficWave for my autoresponder. It is the least expensive of the full-featured autoresponders available to you today. All of the other big boys like to charge you more as your list grows. Your costs can get quite expensive as your list grows. TrafficWave does not your price is the same no matter how large your list.
Now that you have your autoresponder you can start building your list. There are two ways you can do that. Paid list building or free list building. Free will take longer and is time-intensive. you can use safe lists or traffic exchanges most are free to join and I have had good success with them so far. Or you can pay someone to send your link for you and build your list that way. You can also use pay per click and other means to build your list. I suggest using a mix of both.
One other way I have found to be extremely effective is a program called Secrets of the Big Dogs. The basic fee is just $7 to get the eBook that explains all about internet marketing and the right way to go about it. I used to work 12 to 15 hours a day to get about a 1000 hits a week now I work 30 minutes a day and get weekly hits of 5000 plus each week. It definitely works well.
Next you need a program to promote to your list. For that, I recommend TrafficWave or Secrets of the Big Dogs both have a great affiliate plan that really works well.
That is enough to get you started, but it is only a scratch of the surface.
There is a lot more to learn to being a successful internet marketer but that is a topic for another day.
I promise I’ll try to keep in touch more frequently this year.
Happy 2o2o everyone.
