In Internet Marketing everybody agrees, still..."The money IS in the list!"

I'm going to show you how to add thousands of quality subscribers to your list without spamming or spending a fortune in the process. Following the first seven List building Tips, which are part of a whole 27 list building tips (video) series.

List Building Tip #1 - Use a Paid For and Well Known Autoresponder

I can't stress this enough. Don't use free Autoresponders or mailing lists! These services can go down at anytime and are not professional looking at all.

Plus they also get used for spamming and are abused badly.

Use Aweber, GetResponse, infusionsoft, profollow.com, iContact or google for "professional autoresponder services" to find the picks of the bunch.

List Building Tip #2 - Write Free Articles

You will put your newsletter subscribe address in your resource box at the end of the article, but it's not the best way to get people to subscribe.

The best way is to write a few free E-courses that people can subscribe to via an autoresponder and weave the links into your article.

HARDLY ANYONE is doing this!

Here is what I would do:

* Go to and Autoresponder service;
* Buy a monthly subscription;
* Start writing up 2 or 3 free e-courses;
* Plug them into my autoresponder.

In my article, I would let the readers know there is this great E-course for free they can sign up for. I would then provide them with the autoresponder link and how to sign up. You can put your newsletter subscribe information in your resource box like this:

"To get more information on how to catch more bass on a weekly basis, sign up for our newsletter by sending a blank email to youreautoresponder @ address-here.com"

List Building Tip #3 - Archive Your Newsletter Copies

Sometimes people are hesitant to give any sort of information away over the Internet, especially there email addresses even if what you are offering is free, due to spam.

You would think having your newsletter issues archived would cut back on subscribers wanting to subscribe because they can get it without giving their email address away, but this is not true.

What you do is tell them on the website that newsletter subscribers get each issue 2 weeks before non subscribers.

List Building Tip #4 - Use a Sales Letter to Get Subscribers

People using direct sales letters to get new subscribers for their newsletter.

You wouldn't even know by reading the sales letter that its not for a product until the very end.

This gives people the WOW factor. You make your newsletter sound valuable that when they find out it's free, they go "WOW, I can't believe they are giving all this information away for free".

This is pure marketing at it's best, and it's exciting. Marketing is meant to be exciting, just like life.

List Building Tip #5 - Use Free Forum Posting

This is a great way to get not only more subscribers for your newsletter but recognized as an expert in your field. I'm not going to get into a whole lot about this subject as it's pretty easy to get started.

1. Find forums in your niche
2. Read some of the back posts and see who is the boss
3. Start posting with informative information and include your little newsletter byline

Now that work is done for you. Just enter "forums + your target niche" into Google and you will find all the forums you could possibly want on those subjects.

List Building Tip #6 - Trade Ads With Other Publishers

You place an ad for other publishers newsletters in your newsletter and they do the same for you in return.

A few tips you should know...

Trading ad's for ad's with other publishers works well when your mailing list is small and growing rapidly. To find publishers looking to trade - search for the following: "your market here ezine"

Example:

"Gardening Ezine"

"Gardening Newsletter"

Then just contact all the publishers you can and ask them if they are willing to trade ad space in their newsletter for ad space in your newsletter.

Don't spam these people. Actually sign up for their ezine, look at their website, personalize any contact you make with them so they know you're not just harvesting email addresses and you will do well.

Some of the time you don't even need to trade ad's with people in your exact market. Let's say just because you run a gardening ezine, that doesn't mean you can't trade ad's with landscaping ezine.

List Building Tip #7 - Setup a Contest

Get a group of publishers all to agree on running a contest to their lists and you run the same contest to your list. To enter this contest, these subscribers from your list must subscribe to the other publishers lists and vice versa.

The contest could be for anything, depending on your market.

Anything with value with work.

Setup a domain for this specific contest and put all the information needed on that. Tell your list about the contest and where to go to enter and how.

Everyone on your list who enters then gets subscribed to the other publishers ezine and you get their subscribers.

1. Find 4 or 5 publishers in your market
2. Contact them and tell them your idea and that you are willing to do all the work, all they need to do is give you there signup information and something to offer for the contest
3. Setup a domain name and website/sales letter that tells people how to enter and all the information needed
4. Write a mailing piece that each of the publishers can use to promote the contest.
5. Get a firm date when these publishers will run the contest mailing piece and how often
6. Send these publishers the names and email addresses of subscribers
7. Add the subscribers to your list, make sure you check for duplicate email addresses so you don't add people already on your list
8. Pick a winner!
