If you have been in the internet marketing business for any length of time I am sure that you know that list building has to be the number one priority. The list is the life blood of each and every online business and without it there would be no business.
List building is really quite easy once you get down to the nitty-gritty of it. It involves finding ways to entice visitors to your website into providing you with their pertinent information such as their first name and email address. There are a number of ways that this might be accomplished but here are 3 that are super easy.
1.) Give Away Freebies
It is a known fact that people love free things. You can use this fact to your advantage in your list building efforts by offering a report or ebook that you have either written or purchased the rights to in exchange for the name and email address of your visitors. Just make sure that the freebie has a high perceived value and that your traffic is highly targeted.
2.) Use Surveys
While getting something for free is on of the biggest motivators for your viewers, expressing their opinion about something ranks a close second. All you have to do is set up a simple survey on your website asking for the opinion of your visitors. Let them give their opinions on a subject through a number of questions with either radio buttons for multiple choice answers or a text area where they can enter their opinion in their own words. The key is that once they have answered the questions they must enter their first name and email address.
3.) Contact Forms
Using contact forms is a great list building technique. It is used frequently by bloggers but can be used on a static web site as well. Give your visitors the option to ask you a question. Of course to do that they must supply their first name and email address.
As your list grows so should your profits and these 3 easy methods can be used to grow a very profitable list. List building should be the top priority of a successful internet business. Use these methods and watch your list grow.
