It should come as no surprise, but one of the best ways to create cash at the push of a button is with an email list. Today I am going to share with you a useful tool and method for developing your own list without spending a dime. This is something you can do in a few minutes time and have your first subscribers by sundown.
One of the things that discourage most newbies from taking the necessary time to build their business is the desire for overnight success. I do believe in overnight success with big pay days, but those usually occur after hundreds of nights of work before it.
Making thousands, tens of thousands, and even hundreds of thousands of dollars in a short period of time is very doable. Though it’s always the result of hard work.
So keep that in mind as you’re building your own web business. The reward will come, but you need to put in the work.
The same is true when it comes to building your email list. Every list that’s thousands or even millions of subscribers started off with just one subscriber. That first subscriber is a goal I know you can and will accomplish today.
The first step to getting your first subscriber starts with getting an email broadcast system. When you’re sending large volumes and not so large volumes of email this is an absolute must. Companies that provide these services have existing relationships with email providers and ISP’s. This helps to ensure your emails get through to your subscribers.
If you’ve been involved with internet marketing for any length of time I’m sure you’re familiar with some of these services. Some of the more affordable ones include Aweber and Getresponse. These are both really good affordable email broadcast services that will cost you around $20 a month. Though if you remember earlier, my promise wasn’t $20 a month… It was free!
Through my extensive research and contacts I was able to get you access to a tool that’s just as good as those services and 100% free. The name of the site is ListWire (www.listwire.com).
It’s a great tool for my subscribers and I hope you take advantage of it. The best part is this isn’t some lame watered down version either. You can create unlimited follow up messages, send unlimited broadcasts, and do so to as many subscribers as you want.
They also include some great free tools like a simple to use html editor and fancy email capture box creators to help you get subscribers.
I encourage you to get started today. It’s very simple and it won’t cost you a dime.
So now you have the email broadcast service, but what about the most important part? After all, you really don’t have a list without subscribers. Well let’s help you get some of those as well…
There are many great paid ways to get new subscribers. First off, there are PPC search engine ads. These are great because you can start with as little as $20 and pay as little as $0.01 a click. Another option is paid email ads. The thing I like most about email ads is your subscriber is signing up from an email they receive. So it stands to reason that this would be a great person for your email list.
Though what about some no cost methods for getting subscribers… One good method is forum or message board marketing. This is where you find forums in your niche and post links to your email sign up. With this it’s always better to become involved in the conversation rather than just posting links to your site.
You can also do this with popular blogs that allow you to include links. Sometimes you can get dozens of signups from being an early commenter on a site with a lot of traffic and comment activity.
Another way to get more email subscriptions is to submit articles to the many article submission sites. I generally find that you’ll want to just stick to the big ones like:
By doing this you get your articles put on some very high ranking sites. All with links back to your email sign up page.
So get started today. There is no reason why you couldn’t have your very own email list in no time at all.
