Want to Build a BIG List in 2011 Without Paying a Penny for Traffic? (Start Here)
Who else is looking to build a list in 2011? If you are reading this right now, I'm going to presume you are looking to take your business to the next level this year, right?
I've got GOOD news, and bad news if this is you … 🙂
The good news is, if you concentrate on building a list, and then building relationships and rapport with your subscribers, there is definitely no better way to exponentially improve your business, or your brand, than this.
The BAD news?
The vast majority of people reading this WILL NOT do it, or will just think they'll start somewhere else – social networking, affiliate marketing blogs, little AdSense sites, you name it … MOST people think that's the way to build a real business online, and unfortunately they are dead wrong.
The ONLY real way to become independently successful online without a big investment is to build a list. And if you think I'm over-stressing this one point, trust me – I'm not. (I've tried just about every approach under the sun … and it was not until I got my FIRST subscriber did my a-ha moment really begin)
The FASTEST way to build a big list without spending money?
Write articles … plain and simple. Just like this one. They are not fancy. And they are not sexy. And individually … they are not going to make you rich.
But I call it the STRATEGY of Straight Lines … and if you apply it, it will work as well for YOU, as it does for me, and thousands of other online marketers.
In a nutshell? You need content, a community building tool (an optin form is best for beginners), a continuous conversation and a curriculum to offer those who have bonded with you to the point of being willing to take their learning to the next level.
I challenge you to try it yourself … and NOT wait 3 months, or 6 months or even 2 weeks to begin. The SOONER you start, the faster you'll make your subscriber turn into a sale, and there is NO better feeling than that!
