o It's All In The Lists

You have probably heard the expression:

"The Money Is In The List"

too many times. But in fact, this statement is
more true than ever. No matter what you're doing
on the web - building your contact lists should
be your number one priority.

If you're into affiliate marketing or trying to
sell something on the net, then list building
will be one of your most effective tools. I
know because I have used lists to sell millions
of dollars worth of affiliate products.

Besides SEO or #1 Rankings in the search engines
(mainly Google) for my targeted keywords; list
building has been my other major marketing tool
or method of earning an online income.

But I will let you in on a little secret, although
I run two websites on Internet marketing and
have large lists associated with each of those
sites... those are not the lists that make me

My most profitable lists are in the niche areas
that I market. Whenever I promote an affiliate
product - I build a list of interested clients/customers
for that product or niche market.

Example: if you're selling laptops, you build a
list of interested subscribers/customers who sign
up for further information, deals or discounts.
It's a very simple principle, most visitors come
to your site once, but if they sign up to your
list - you have the chance to bring them back
to your site time and time again.

Lists are great marketing tools. You can use them
to warm up or pre-sell your products or services.
But it must be a win-win situation for both parties
or it won't work - your subscribers must benefit from
being on your list; they must get valuable information
or a great discount.

If you're not using lists with your online site
or marketing - you are losing out on a lot of
future traffic and sales.

Anyway, I have written a simple article below
explaining more on list building...

One of the most important factors to online success
is list building. No matter what goals you're pursuing
with your online activities, building a good healthy
contact list is vital for a successful outcome.

List building plays a major role in developing good
relationships with your site's customers, clients and
visitors. It can be used to get more traffic, leads
and sales for your site or business.

For these reasons contact building should be high on
your list of priorities when you're marketing or promoting
on the web. Fortunately, list building is an easy process
that any site or webmaster can quickly set-up as long
as you understand two simple, yet well-proven principles
of list building.

To be really successful, your list building must
incorporate these two key elements. Without these two
main ingredients you will probably find building your
contact list difficult and slow going. So it is worth
your while to fully understand and utilize these
two factors in your list building.

Any list should have these two key elements:

1. Value

Your list should have value. It should offer something
valuable to the one subscribing. It should offer important
information, quality content, special deals/discounts,
and more importantly, it should offer a valuable relationship
or connection to an expert in the subject area of the list.

Subscribers join a list for the benefits it will bring them,
whether it be valuable content, special deals or a connection
to an expert in their area of interest; your list must have
value for the subscribers. They must benefit from joining
your list.

If you're building a list, just write down all the benefits
someone would receive from joining your site or list.

- receive important information
- get special valuable content
- receive special deals/discounts
- get training videos/workshops
- get timely announcements or news

Make these benefits your main selling points when you're
building your list. Don't forget there may also be a
psychological reason for joining your list - many people
like being part of a group or membership site. It's human
nature, we all want to be emotionally involved with certain
topics or causes, so don't ignore this aspect when building
your list. Everybody likes to feel included - lists can fulfil
this emotional need.

Simply give your subscribers something of value and
you will build your list quickly and easily.

2. Free

Whatever you offer - make sure it is Free. The quickest way
to build any list is to give away free valuable content,
information, videos, reports, ebooks, discounts, prizes...
everybody loves a free gift. Just make them an offer they
can't refuse.

Some marketers argue that giving away free items will attract
the "wrong kind" of customer or subscriber - people that will
never buy anything because they will expect it to be free.
But this has more to do with the nature of your gift and the
kind of contacts you're building - giving away free buying guides
on how to purchase real estate, fast cars, LCD TVs, laptops...
will definitely attract the right "buying customer". If you're
into selling, you just have to adjust your marketing to
incorporate the free element correctly.

Besides, giving away something free is the first step in
starting an ongoing relationship with your subscribers. It
gets the ball rolling. It is one of the most effective ways
to build your list quickly and easily. Just make sure you're
giving away something of value to the person receiving it and
they will turn to you, time and time again, to find what they're
looking for on the web.

So the next time you're building a contact list make these
two key elements the center of your activities. Just remember
"give them value and make it free" and you should have no
problems with list building.

o The AutoResponders I Use For My Lists

I am often asked what AutoResponder system I use
with my lists?

I use Aweber... they are extremely good and I have
been using them for years and never had a problem
with them yet, knock on wood. They are really

They use a double-optin system which will protect you
against any 'spam complaints'. You can use as many
autoresponders/lists as you like... and I also like
the 'fade-ins' windows/pop-ins that increases your
sign up rates. I also like their control panel, very
easy to manage all yours lists from one simple location.

If you're thinking of building lists, and you should
be. Aweber is a good place to start....

o "I LOVE SBI! Special $100 Valentine Gift"

Site Build It has become my favorite "marketing system"
to promote. Since building a site with them last
year - I have become more of a fan.

Especially if you're just starting out and learning
the ropes. Keep in mind, SBI is little more expensive
than your regular 'run-of-the-mill' web hosting - mainly
because SBI is a complete marketing system. It will
give you everything you need to start a web business.

Now SBI is offering a Special $100 Valentine Gift.

Now for only $100 you can give a second SBI
site to someone you care about- even yourself!

Order one package and get another for $100. Join
with a friend and you buy together to save money on
your own SBI.

Even without a discount SBI is still the best
deal on the net for starting a "web business"
- says I!
