Because email marketing still works, I’ve been posting about list building frequently lately.
Today’s post is about how to build your email list fast.
That is: adding hundreds of subscribers to your list every week!
It’s a guest post, written by Gary David, an Internet marketer which specializes list building.
We always hear that the “money is in the list”.
Honestly, when I started online back in 2006, I never gave importance of building my list. I only took it seriously after 2 years.
Consider this for a minute. Every subscriber on your list is worth $1 in sales a month to you. Therefore, when you have an email list of about 2,000, you are likely to earn at least $2,000 per month. If your list is about 5,000, you can expect to make about $5,000 per month. That’s when I realized to start building my list in 2008.
Now, even though I have thousands of subscribers already, I still continue building my list every single day. In fact, I have one strategy that I would like to share to you that consistently adds hundreds of subscribers to me every week.
This is how I add 100-200+ subscribers to my list every week, and guess what, the more your list grows, the more money that you can make and let me show how you can do the same.
How Do I Consistently Add 100 – 200+ Email Subscribers Every Week?
Absolutely, one of my favorite strategies is what we call email “adswaps”, you probably heard of it before, or to some of you, might doing this already.
What exactly is an email adswap?
An adswap is when two marketers come together to advertise one of their offers to each others list.
For example, if you have 300+ subscribers. you will look for a marketer who have 300+ subscribers as well, and agree to send out promotional email to each others list to gain additional subscribers for each other.
Why does this work?
The best type of promotion is when other people promote you. That builds more credibility and trust from others, and as we all know, we need credibility and gain trust from people if we want to succeed online. I am going to show you how to look for them in a minute…
Why do email adswaps work?
It is very easy to set-up, no hassle and you get responsive potential subscribers. So, if you have 700 email subscribers, you have to find a marketer with similar amount of subscribers just like you.
If you both send an email, the normal rate of subscribers you would keep from 700 people is roughly 10% conversion which is 70 subscribers, and your opt-in page converting at about 30%, in that scenario, you would add 21 subscribers from this adswap.
At this point, it may not sound like a lot yet. However, just visualize if you keep on repeating this similar method frequently, you will notice that you are building your subscribers list fast. Just make sure to look for a marketer with similar list size, don’t perform email adswaps with people who have fewer subscribers than you.
Take a look at this instance…
700 subscribers X 10% conversion = 70 visitors X 30% opt-in = 21 subscribers.
If you do this repeatedly about 2-4 times a week, you will keep 10% of another marketer’s list.
As a result, that will build to 721, followed by 742, then 764, then 786. Thus, you have just added 86 new subscribers for that week!
Consider this, when your list grows and you are hitting 1,000 or 2,000 subscribers and you are repeating this method, matching your list size with another marketer, you begin to increase your list fast.
Just to illustrate, if your list is 4,000 subscribers, 10% of that is 400 and a 30% opt-in page conversion, you will add 120 subscribers just from 1 ad swap, and if you do 2 that week with the same size, you will add 240 new subscribers, isn’t that incredible?
Now, keep in mind that those are very responsive subscribers, because it came from another respectable marketer.
My objective is to help you build your email list fast this year. I aspire to see you accomplish something and the quickest and much more long-term approach to do this is to build your email list primarily.
Keep in mind, traffic = money, no other way around it, this really is traffic you possibly can generate on demand by sending 1 email to your list.
Also, when you are driving traffic from other sources you continue to still build your list at the same time, how awesome is that?!
Everything else is simply a distraction to you.
Your email list needs to be your number 1 concern every day, and all of the things that I’m doing to build my list including article marketing, blog commenting, forum marketing, viral marketing, social bookmarking etc all leads back to my squeeze page to build my list.
I’m going to provide help to build your email list to at least 300+ subscribers this month to be able to get the standard downpact and on your way to making true success, because it does matter.
Keep in mind, it is not about how big your email list is, it’s about how responsive it is!
I’ve seen 500+ subscribers list out-perform list size of about 5,000+ and by building your email list using these techniques, it is possible to build fast, and build responsive too.
Remember, not anything works unless you truly put it to use.
