Introduction to List Building
Learning how to list build is one of the most important skills you can learn as a home-based business owner.
Having a solid, opt-in email list can be one of the most lucrative assets you’ll ever possess.
Build a strong relationship with your subscribers and they will come to trust you and in time, join you in business.
In order for that to happen, you need to know how to list build, so here’s a few tips to get you started:
List Building Tip #1.
Do not give away any information about your company or opportunity until your prospect has given you their contact information first.
Online, a lead capture page does this for you. So be sure to advertise and market your lead capture page url and not your company home page! – You can send your prospects to your company homepage after they opt-in.
Offline, if you’re using an 800#, your service provider should automatically be gathering their contact information for you.
And if you’re talking to them, just ask them for their contact so you can send them more information. Yes, it really is that easy!
List Building Tip #2.
To encourage people to opt-in, offer them a valuable gift for free. E-books and reports (digital) are great gifts to give away because of the inherent value they provide your prospect. Plus, it won’t cost you a penny to deliver the ebook or report.
List Building Tip #3.
To further increase your opt-in rate, show and tell your prospect what’s in it for them and why they should opt-in.
Once you’ve started list building, be sure to set a schedule of communication to stay in regular contact with your prospects.
If you’re just getting started, then an email a month is a good place to start. Think of it as a monthly newsletter. As your list grows, you’ll want to increase your monthly communication to twice a month, once a week, twice a week, etc…
List building does not have to be difficult. Just stay focused on your advertising and marketing each week.
