Read and implement these seven very effective ways to build your opt-in list for all your Internet marketing.
1. Offer a free newsletter:
This is very common and very effective. It is used by virtually everyone who builds an opt-in list of potential buyers of an Internet marketer’s product.
The reason everyone uses it is that it is effective. Have your free newsletter prominently seen on your web page.
2. Make your free newsletter easy to get:
You must have a “you’d be a fool not to get this newsletter” sentence telling people why and how your newsletter will help them. Make subscribing to it quickly and easily.
3. Quality content on your web site:
The better the content, the better your ranking in the search engines, and therefore the more visitors will come to your website.
There is a good chance that many of the visitors to your web page will sign up for your free newsletter.
4. Join forums:
Search for and join any forum that is related to your business. Most of these forums allow you to add a signature line directly under your post where you can put a link that goes to your newsletter subscription information.
5. Write articles:
You need to establish yourself as an expert in your particular field. And how do you do that? write articles.
Your articles will contain useful information and the byline will contain a link to your newsletter subscription.
6. Write an eBook:
This will establish you as an expert similar to writing articles. An additional bonus to this technique is many Internet marketers are often looking for freebies they can give to visitors of their website.
Your eBook can be one of those freebies. Inside you will have various links back to your site and your free newsletter.
Your eBook does not need to win any prizes for literary content nor does it need to belong; just write solid, useful information.
7. Use Co-registration.
I saved the best for last. The top marketing experts on the Internet use this secret today. This will build your list rapidly in a short amount of time.
What is co-registration you ask? It refers to the practice of referring subscriptions or leads for memberships with another registration process. There are several ways of doing this.
When a visitor signs up for a free subscription or another service, give them the chance on the “thank-you” page to opt-in to another offer.
Another way is to give the visitors to a website the opportunity to sign up for another opt-in list.
These do not need to be your “thank-you” pages or websites. You need to partner up with another web marketer.
The goal here is to find other website owners who you can joint venture with to offer your newsletter along with theirs.
Do a search via your favorite search engine and directories for similar offers and contact the people to set up your joint venture.
Here are two additional secrets to this co-registration process. First, make sure you offer more value than the other party involved in your joint venture.
Second, offer your leads you get from this process more value than you usually offer by giving them a huge giveaway only available to them.
