All the successful affiliate marketers, network marketers and gurus, have done this and continue to do so on a daily basis. From very early they understood the importance of a list. Having a list is like having assets. It’s the foundation that is needed for you to take your business to the next level. How often have you heard Build Your List, Build Your List. Well if you have not yet gotten the message let me say it out loud again, Build Your List. There is no way around it. The money is in the list and its' absolutely true.
The affiliates and internet marketers making the huge bucks, hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars in the industry have very huge lists at their disposal. Those that don't have a huge list in most cases have to joint venture with those who do, to make a decent income. Many internet gurus have hundreds of thousands on their list and they can make thousands at the click of a mouse. And even those who have huge lists continue to build their list on a daily basis. You see they know the tremendous value of having a list.
Always remember, it might take a few visits to your site or blog before persons decide to buy your products or other products you are promoting. Hence you should always have a way of contacting visitors even after they click away from your site. That's why you need to start building a list.
To start building your list you need to have something of value to give away to your visitors such as a free ebook, audio, some tips, a video, newsletters etc. Visitors will be more inclined to give you their contact info if they are getting something of value in return. Having a list is not all. When you have a list you have to start building a relationship with that list. Your aim is to build a strong relationship with your list so that you can sell to that list over and over again. Having a huge list and not having a relationship with that list is like not having a list at all. If you did all the hard work in building your list in the first place you might as well spend as much time treating your list well and providing them with valuable information.
Most persons who are successful in this industry realized the importance of a list very early and it took years of hard work growing that list. Now they are the gurus and they have the huge lists and everyone wants to joint venture with them and everything is easier. Start building now.
