Importance Of List Building Or Prospectin System: Let's Discuss! by neksummi(m): 9:52pm On May 09, 2012
I've noticed that people come to NL to get prospects for their businesses and that's all. There's this important but neglected subject I'd like us to discus thoroughly on this thread - List building.

I'm afraid to say this is one of the DEADLY “beginner” mistakes that will cause people to waste time and lose money… and ultimately QUIT if not handled properly!

No doubt you've heard the tired phrase "the money's in the list" This may not be exactly true but the fact is you need some way of capturing new prospects so you have the ability to go back to them multiple times to convert buyers and repeat buyers.

But let's really get clear on why you absolutely must build a list to survive. If you focus on just getting traffic, that may work for now... but your competitors are capturing leads from that traffic and converting them, so they are making more money from their traffic. which in turn means they can spend more to get it. So without a list, over time you won't even be able to afford the traffic anymore and you'd be out of business.

As an example to really get specific--if you pay $100 for traffic and make 5 sales at $25 each you have $125 sales - $100 cost so you make $25.

If your competitor does the same, but captures prospects on his list and follows them up with them, he makes 5 more sales so his revenue is $250 yet cost is still $100 so he makes $150.

Now suppose this is pay per click traffic--he could actually pay $200 for that same traffic and still make $50, but you would lose $75...so he literally can bid the traffic up so high you can't even afford it.

Your subscriber list is an asset for you--if you treat your subscribers well, it can become like a cash machine because they will happily buy your products or stuff you recommend if they like and trust you.

People I need your contributions! Hope this post has opened someone's eyes.
Thanks for reading.

It may seem outrageous to say right now, especially if you’re starting from scratch, but it isn’t all that difficult to build a large mailing list. And once you have it, the math can be dazzling. A good rule of thumb is that every subscriber on your list means about one dollar per month in affiliate income (possibly more if you sell your own products to your list). Do you see the potential?

I'm surprised no one wants to discus this important subject.

I bet even a list of 1000 people could change your life. Making an extra $1000 a month might seem like a dream right now… but a list of 1000 can easily translate into that. A list of 2500 or more might replace your day job. A list of 10000 or more can easily put you in the N1m monthly income range, or beyond.

I agree with you. They don't know the importance. But we need to enlighten them. You can't be looking for new customers all the time. Besides a person may not buy from you at first contact. If you do not find a way of capturing his contact address, he may NEVER find his way to your website again forever. That's why you should build a list so you can sell to them in the future and make repeat sales to them over and over again.

As a mailing list comprises people who trust an Internet marketer’s services, it is usually a convenient venue to advertise new products to potential customers. Since users are more likely to open the marketer’s email, he can make a substantial profit from a recently released item. Whether the product is based on new software or an e-book package, sales are almost guaranteed because users willingly opted into the mailing list. Making a profit typically depends on the marketer’s ability to deliver an effective sales pitch.

We'll in the course of this thread discuss how best to build a list. Keep coming back.

The money is not in the list, if it were, all spammers will be billionaires. Rather, the money is in the relationship you have with the list. Some people own email lists, but don't know how to monetize (appropriately) their lists. So owning is list doesn't necessary mean you've found a cash cow.

We're still contributing. We've not exhausted all that needs to be said about list building. We're going to talk about building a good relation. I doubt if spammers ever build any good relationship!

Yeah, I understand that you can't have a relationship without a list but also, a list without a relationship is almost useless. I can freely find email lists on the web and bombard them unsolicited emails, thats spamming and its illegal. Also if, you have opt-in/double opt-in subscribers and you can't make money off them, its basically because of the relationship you have with your subscribers. So the relationship with the list matters alot.

The relationship with a list refers to how you treat your list and how they see you.if you help your subscribers by giving first and helping to solve their problems and tell them the truth first they will love and trust you,and buy from you. If you only ask for money or sell stuff your subscriber will have a bad impression of you.

nek. If you have got the cash... Roll out your own product,create your squeeze page,build a list with adwords, rinse and repeat.

I don't have time for this your style.

I MUST make at least N500,000 before the year end.

You know who recommended this stuff to me? Ewen Chia. You surely cannot say the guy is recommending nonsense. With this, you get five more leads for each one you get personally. Besides it is not the only way I'm capturing my leads.

And talking about adwords if you're not careful, you may burn your money before you understand what's going on

You can make N500k before the end of the year. I don't doubt that.

Ewen Chai? That guy still dey alive? Lol.

Okay, now I know what you are doing. I think say na play u dey 4hia o.

Adwords? Na so dem tell you? Never accept what people tell you till you try it. As far as adwords is concerned, its the fastest way to build a list. There cheaper ways to get result if you try it. Good Copy is the key.

I am just waiting for my exam to come and go so that I can kick start the ATM. Akin Alabi made his money doing this and some other Nigerians. And that's what I will do. Besides, I have more knowledge in making money online than most people who pose as an expert but never made a dime except to sell make money online products. I got proof of earning but I will wait till I finish what I am doing.

Karlxavier didn't contact me anymore due to reasons best known to him. But I sense that he is too in a hurry. I told him that we could only start by August but the guy is in a hurry.

Today, list building is the way to go if you want to make money online.
Not only it is very serious and professional, but it is also a solid stream of income.
Prior to create a good list of subscribers, you need to learn a lot of things before, but education is the foundation of every business don't you think? so it is just a step before we can deploy a good and solid business online.

Years ago the best way to make money online was redirecting people directly to the sales pages, now the trend is to make a list of subscribers, and this is going to be exploited for the next few years.

Just imagine, you have a list of 500 people in a particular niche, you send a broadcast message promoting something at a value of $40 (recurring)...
200 out of the 500 open the email, 150 click the link, and 100 purchase the product...

That would be 4000 dollars from a single email, that you can send once every two weeks for example. Just AMAZING...

What autoresponders are you using?

I quite agree with you. I use Getresponse. For those who want to start building their list but don't have an auto-responder in mind, if you create your account via this link, you will get $30 credit for start. http://grsnip.com/pr/hHS

You need to build a good relationship with your list if you want to have success with them. Ewen Chia taught me this: One should not sell to his list too often.
If you promote too often, you're going to put yourself under pressure to find stuff to sell and you'll end up promoting junk. The schedules will be something like this: junk...junk...good product...junk...junk...good product...junk...junk etc. Before long you're going to lose credibility. Your subscribers will be blind to your recommendations because they are no more sure if what you are promoting to them is junk or good product.

Start building your list today and please, treat your subscribers well.
