If you have been doing any kind of internet marketing you know you only as good as your list. The only way you will ever make any money online is with a mailing list. Every internet marker know without you business will be short lived. That is why the Guru’s spend thousands of dollar to build their lists because without they wouldn’t make a dime. It like having a beautiful brick and mortar store with great merchandise but no costumers. They wouldn’t be in business very long would they?
The list is the absolute most important piece to having success online. These are the people that you will have a relationship with for a long time if done right. These are the people that you will sell your products or services to. These are the people that will make you or break you literally. You could have the best products and the best services online but if you don’t have anyone to sell those products or services to what good are they. The list will contain your targeted traffic that are looking for the services and opportunities you have to offer. It is a proven fact that for every person you have on your list is equal to 1 dollar every month. meaning if you have 100 on your list equal $100 a month, if you have 10,000 on your list you will earn $10,ooo a month. So you get the idea of how powerful your list can be.
Building your list is actually the toughest part of any kind of marketing. Building your list takes a long time and a lot of marketers don’t have a long time to start seeing profits because they have a lot of money tied up in their businesses. Marketers build their lists with capture pages, opt-in pages, self-hosted websites and blogs anything that asks your to put your name and email. These are people that are looking for services and products that offering. Once they opt-in they now become your sales list. These are the people your are going to promote your services and products to. These are the people you build a relationship and if they trust you these are the people who are going to make you successful in your business.
If you are going to make any real money online you will need to spend some money to make money. You will need to get a hosted website with your own domain and hosting. There are many advantages to having you own domain and hosting , but the number one reason its yours and the list is yours. If don’t have your own website or blog and it is hosted by a third party they can cut you off at any time and all your hard work has been destroyed.
The next most important thing to get is a auto-responder . This is a very needed tool if you want to be your list and put your business on auto-pilot. This great tool that can be set-up to automatically email your potential leads and turn them into sales for you. Its is a great tool to build your list because it saves all your leads and anytime you need to promote a service or products all you need to do is go to your list and begin to promote. Auto-responders are fairly cheap about $10 a month. Another great thing about the Auto-reponder is it runs 24/7 anytime someone opt-ins by putting their name and email to receive more information the auto-responder will send them the emails you have set-up in the system automatically. That how it puts your buisness on auto-pilots. There are few great email auto-reponders out there the best ones are aweber, getresponse ,icontact and my favorite GVO. They all do a great job anyone will make your business start to flourish. Most of them offer a $1 7-day trail and money back guarantee. So really have nothing to lose but everything to gain .
