List Building – How Much Can You Make as a List Builder?
List building is one of the things online that when it is properly leveraged, it can make you a lot of money. I am always so hesitant to talk about how much my list makes me, because I have built a relationship with the people on my list.
You cannot just think, 50 cents a name or 1 dollar a name, and then go build a big list with PPC – it just won’t work. You have to learn to communicate with your list – and that takes time and effort and energy – work in short.
You have to send out emails, communicate with your subscribers, ask them questions, answer their questions, and monitor and study click through and open rates. You have to study your list to see how they respond – and you have to keep it personal.
If you do all of that correctly, you might be able to make between 50 cents and 1 dollar per subscriber on your list per month. Many experts online believe that the average is somewhere between those two numbers. But keep in mind that an average is just that, and includes lists that perform very well, and lists that perform poorly.
Take my own list, for example. My first 2 months online I averaged about 50 cents per month per subscriber. By the 3rd month, I was up to about 1 dollar per month. Did my list just start getting more responsive on its own, or did I make changes that influenced their purchases? Of course it was because of changes I made. The 4th month I was around $1.50 per month per subscriber. Now I am consistently above $2 per month per subscriber. By the way, that is not normal, I am told. But why does my list perform that way? It is because of the way I run it, the way I treat it, the way I manage it.
And your list will be much the same.
Set an income goal for your list. Start low. Hit that number. Then raise the bar. Make the necessary changes to get your list members to buy more. Test, test, and test some more. Then make changes. Do it again, and again – your list can make you as much money as you desire, a long as you nurture and grow it properly.
