List building is one of the most important ingredients to building a stable internet business. The reason for this is what would you prefer a one time sale or many repeat sales from different customers.
However, I remember when I first started building a list I was struggling. The reason for this is that I read a lot of ebooks out there and still could not find the magic formula and get it to work. Eventually I started to get it right. In this article I would like to share with you what has worked for me.
1) Use a high converting squeeze page
This is probably the most important part. You need to have a squeeze page that converts very well. What I learnt is that the design and sales copy will depend a lot on the traffic source that you are using to get visitors. For example if you use traffic exchanges then you will need a splash page. If you are using article marketing then offer a free report for download. Split test different headlines and sales copy so you know which works best.
2) Use a reputable autoresponder
When I first got started this probably was my sticking point. I used free autoresponders and this later hurt my business. You need to use a professional one like Getresponse or Aweber. If you use a script on your own server you have to worry about data loss and also spam complaints.
3) Build a relationship with your subscribers
People only buy from other people that they like, know and trust. So it is very important that you build a relationship with your subscribers. Ask them what their most important questions are and then personally answer them. You will find that you will boost your responsiveness significantly by doing this.
