Internet Marketing Help – The Importance of Building a List
When starting up, we all need internet marketing help. One of the biggest mistakes a lot of aspiring internet marketers make in their online business is not starting building a list right away.
This can make the difference between failure and success. List building is more important than I can probably explain. In the next paragraphs I will try and explain the importance of list building.
Don’t listen to anyone who tells you that email marketing has gone out of style or is no longer effective. Email-based marketing is definitely a lot harder than it once was, but there are plenty of ways in which you can build a responsive list, even with all of the new challenges.
If you don’t build a list of subscribers, you are generally limited to direct sales, which usually have very low conversion rates; basically without a list your only hope is to make one-time sales. Once you miss that opportunity, you may never see that visitor again – and he could have potentially subscribed and made multiple purchases from you.
All your online income will eventually come from your list. For example if you are building a list of people interested in personal development. Once this has been done, you can then promote related products to your list. This will be to targeted people that are interested in the subject matter because they have signed up to the list in the first place.
Online business is about relations and networking. When you build a list, you are asking people for their contact information. Once you have built your database of people, you can send them information, give them free newsletter issues or products to strengthen their loyalty – and then slowly and repeatedly make your product pitch.
Your list is really the only asset you have in your online business. With list buildings you have no SEO or Google rankings to worry about.
There are three important things to remember about building a list.
1) You need to offer potential subscribers something in return for their contact information (like a free ebook)
2) What you are offering in return for their contact information should be of value and related to the product you will be sending them in the future.
3) You need to grab their attention with a prominently placed “killer” sign up/subscription form.
Your entire business can be growing your list, building trust with your subscribers, and recommending products to buy (your own/affiliate products). Done right and you can make a good online income this way. This was without a doubt one the best internet marketing help I have received.
