How to Build a List – In this video I show how YOU can build a list 9,147+ subscribers in only 21 days! The product I created was quite expensive to get built, but yours doesn’t have to be! The technique I show in the video works for almost any sort of product or service. I didn’t use any of my business lists to promote it, which means you DON’T need to own a list to get such results! Here is, step by step, what you have to do:
How to Build a List
- Find something people need
- Get it made (visit oDesk and hire someone if needed)
- Give your members good value FREE
- Allow them to get the upgrade… in two ways!
- 1st way is a straight forward payment, the 2nd way is to refer members to you
- Provide your members with promotional tools
- Build your list using an autoresponder (Aweber or Imnica Mail)
- Launch your product using list builders (ViralUrl, ViralHosts, – see more below)
I also give a few examples so make sure you watch the video on how to build a list in full! If you’re looking for someone to create your product, visit oDesk. There are plenty of web developers, software developers, web designers and writers looking for work. I hired a few people on this site and was very satisfied with their work. Make sure they are qualified for the job before hiring them though.
In the video, I highly recommend that you get either Aweber or Imnica Mail, which is the autoresponder I use for my product. I prefer Imnica Mail because they provide great analytics and their plans are a lot cheaper than their competitors. When I’m talking about the traffic you have access to, I’m talking about list builders and mailers that anyone can sign up to.
List Builders are cheap ways to mail people who have agreed to get your emails. It is a way to reach people on a ‘shared’ list and get them to join your list. Of course it costs money to join, be prepared to spend up front, but then you can continue to mail your free optin product (with a paid upgrade & a viral aspect of getting referrals to your site) over and over again.
These programs will help you launch, it will send signups to your program, it will give you the initial people who will then go with their affiliate link and post on forums, blogs and social media sites to get the upgrade free… which should make you very happy because it then drives a lot of new signups to your site… Many of those new signups will then promote as well, turning your offer VIRAL!
- ViralUrl (When sign up take Gold, then Elite on the offers right after sign up for cheapest price!)
- ViralHosts (When sign up take Gold, then Elite on the offers right after sign up for cheapest price!)
Those 4 will get your stuff off to a good start if you upgrade with them. Then to kick on you can join a targeted community where you can get the word out quickly:
As previously mentioned, I didn’t promote the product to any of my business lists, which means that YOU can do it too. The best way to drive traffic to the product page is to sign up to these list builders and get a TrafficZipper account, which will allow you to use all the mailers all at once and even save an email or 2 (up to 5 at a time) that it will send out at random for you, automatically:
Another benefit of joining is that it also allows you to compare statistics, and see which mailers perform the best. I made a short video to show you how it works, and why ViralUrl and ViralHosts are great choices when it comes to list builders and mailers. You can watch it here:
