List Building for me is about money and time and leverage. Why money? Because my list, with whom I have developed a relationship – spends money with me. Why time? Because my list, with whom I have developed trust – allows me to spend more time on relationships rather than trying to drive traffic to my pages. And why leverage – leverage because list building allows me to get 5-10 visits out of each unique visitor to my site. Instead of trying to sell them right off the bat – I build a relationship with them – then I can sell to them forever.
List building is probably the most lucrative single action you can take online, but you have to have the perseverance to make it through the beginning phases.
Just like you weren’t born walking and talking, you weren’t born list building. List building is a skill, and will take time to learn. As you take the steps in this book, you will not only be learning the skills necessary for profitable list building, but you will also be actively improving your application of those skills.
You Must Have and Use Multiple Lists
Each of your online lists should be tightly targeted to the demographic of the person on the list. The tighter you target your lists, the more money you will make.
There is, of course, a trade off involved in segmenting your lists. For an extreme example, if you build 100 lists, you have to write 100 email campaigns, and perhaps develop a number of different products for each of those lists.
On the other hand, if you only have one list, and you have several demographics on your list, you will be unable to effectively target the subscribers on your list.
