4 Easy Steps To Build Your Own List

Today I would like to talk about ways to build your own list.

Any successful Internet Network Marketer will tell you that you absolutely must have your own list. Not only does having a list of contacts give you an advantage over 95% of network marketers, but it also gives you the ability to have potential customers for life.

Many people just starting out in Internet Network Marketing really miss the boat on this. That is why this article will explain the 4 easy steps to complete in order to build your own list and have customers for life.

1. Don’t only promote your company’s replicated website! Every single distributor for your network marketing company has the same website, with the exception of a few personalization features. If by chance a prospect finds your website, yours will look the same as everyone else’s site out there on the world wide web, and most don’t have a way to capture the name and email address of your visitor. You need to create a capture page, sometimes also referred to as a Squeeze Page. In doing this, you will immediately be viewed as a leader and you will also be able to capture the name, email address and phone number of your prospect for future follow-up. If you don’t capture the name and email of your prospect, and add them to your list, they aren’t customers for life…. they are gone for life.

2. You must have an auto responder service. Many auto responder services are available. Auto responder services basically store your prospect’s information on a ‘list name’ unique only to you. You can then write compelling email messages that will be sent to your prospect as soon as they enter their information and click the ‘Submit’ button. Some auto responder services are free while others charge a yearly or monthly fee.

3. Offer your prospect something worthwhile for giving you their name, email address or phone number. Yes, this is a shameless bribe! However, prospects are more likely to enter their personal contact information if they think there is something of value in it for them. Consider giving away a free report that you’ve written. Maybe you are marketing health and wellness supplements. You can read your company’s literature and come up with a free report on why it’s important to have a balanced vitamin and mineral intake daily. Giving away something for free is one of the best ways to build your own list.

4. There are a lot of list builder sites that allow you to mail to other members of the list. Some of these list builders have over 30,000 subscribers. Join 5 or more of these list builder sites; advertise your capture page and viola…they enter their information on your capture page to get their ‘free report’ or whatever bribe you give them and now they are on your list and you can use your auto responder to follow-up with them from that point forward.

The most important thing to remember when you want to build your own list is to be sincere and offer something of value to the prospects that gave you their very personal information. They will send you emails asking questions or they will call you if you provide your phone number. Do not ignore them! Answer their questions and offer to call them if they are open to learning more. Build a relationship with your prospects, and you will have customers for life.

So, now you know you need to build your own list – Great! The next thing you need to know is how to format your autoresponder series to take best advantage of the list you are planning to build.

My next article will be about how to format your autoresponder series, but until then, think about lifetime customers and building your list!
