5 Steps To Generating Your Own Passive List Building Machine!
How do you build a list building system that funnels subscribers passively into your database day in and day out?
Well, this one question is one of the major questions I get from many of my subscribers who are interested in building a responsive email list. The majority of my subscribers say that they built a marketable email list by using various tactics like ad swaps, articles, and solo ads. But their major problem comes in the area of sustaining their email list growth.
A lot of my subscribers shared with me that they are actually losing more subscribers than they are actually gaining. So how do we avoid this?
Well, that is the focus of this article.
Now let me start off by saying that you will be deceiving yourself if you just think that you can overcome this problem of constantly losing subscribers without any work.
Sitting on your butt and doing nothing is the hogwash approach to online marketing!
It really frustrates me to even think that there are actual individuals who believe that success can come with no work at all!
So before I move forward, make sure you get the lazy approach to online marketing out of your system as soon as possible. If you do not extract laziness from your life and your business, you won’t see any improvement in your life and online business.
Now that we’ve got that out of the way, let me begin describing a legitimate way to passively funnel fresh responsive subscribers into your database.
I will list a series of steps that you can follow below:
1. Generate a content site for your niche
The goal in this step is to generate a website full of useful content that is related to the niche you are trying to build an email list for. A good content site, when organized well, can actually send repeat visitors to your website.
2. Place a Tell a Friend form at the bottom of the pages on your content site
A tell a friend form is a form that allows a visitor to recommend their friends to your website if they find the information on your website useful. A good content site with very valuable information will be virally recommended to a visitor’s friends and family if they find the content enjoyable and full of high quality information.
Therefore, make every effort to select or add the best quality content you can.
3. Add a popup note to every page of your content site
Adding a popup note to your website is an easy way to instantly grab the eyeballs of your visitors and force them to sign up to your newsletter or ezine. The type of popup notes I am referring to have been known to increase the responsiveness of website visitors to a certain offer just by describing the offer in the note.
To see an example of this type of popup in action, visit the link below:
Now do you get the idea!
Just make sure you put a popup note on every page of your content website and you should see some consistent list growth. Also, make sure the popup is advertising your newsletter or ezine.
4. Write an article or press release about your new content website
Writing an article or press release is just a way to jump start the traffic to your website. Just one press release can send you hundreds of links to your site as well as some media publicity.
5. Generate another content website by repeating steps 1 thru 4...or just continue adding original content to your website.
Now this is all it takes to produce a passive list building machine that consistently sends streams of subscribers to your newsletter or ezine. The more content sites you have, the more subscribers you will be able to passively generate.
