3 Quick And Easy Ways To
Build A Profitable Opt In List
Now that you have started your business.
You finally realize that you need a good opt-in list. After reading countless articles and seeking expert advice plus reading many success stories of people creating a small fortune with opt-in lists you finally decide to have one of your own.
Then it happens, you think you know everything there is to know about opt-in lists, you followed all the different advice to a T and still weren’t able to make any money.
In fact, you may be losing money. You may be hiring writers to help you out, or there are some expenses incurred, even if you have a big list, but only a very small percentage actually buy from you and still you are losing money.
So what could have gone wrong? Why do others succeed where you have failed?
The most common mistake is that you dove straight in. You chose a topic that you thought would be quite popular and would earn you money.
That just doesn't work. Why? Well, just because you wrote people from your list doesn’t mean they are going to buy instantly.
Here's some more advice, for those who have started an opt-in list and have failed. You can rejuvenate your failed venture. For those who are starting, here are three quick and easy ways to build a profitable opt-in list.
1) Get your customers to trust you and your products first.
Just launching your opt-in list does not make you an expert and a believable seller. Release lots of articles first before you start an opt-in list. Write about a topic you know and have started and used for your site. Visit forums first to gain knowledge about your customers wants and needs and target those wants and needs.
Join forums from other sites as well. Provide expert advice and recommendations. When you feel that people trust you, you will be able to start your own opt-in list. You can build a base as well with other forum users. You can ask them to join your list. Friends are always good customers. Put up a link to your site so that they may be able to see what you're business is all about.
The truth is, the money will only come in when the consumers and subscribers believe and trust in you. They want a product or service that will be a good exchange for their money. People are not going to buy something because of your recommendation if they don’t know you.
2) Find a product or service that people want and need.
Although it may not be your forte, if you provide a service and product that you have researched and learned very well, you can carry it on forward. Invest your time, effort and money so that you can sell as well as your buyers and/or subscribers will have need of.
It is true that it's best to sell something that you have interest in, but if there are not many people who have the same interest as you or what you decide to sell then it's not going to be popular or profitable. Do your research well and you will see profits start to come in. You should also provide your subscribers with promotional material they can actually use and spread around.
3) Make friends with other opt-in list users.
This is beneficial especially if it is someone who has already launched a successful opt-in list. These are people that have experience and experience is still the best teacher. While there are many articles available for you on the internet to use, there is nothing like getting a first hand account from someone you trust.
Experienced opt-in list users will be able to tell you what to do and what not to do because they have gone through it. While different situations occur for different people, the general concept can still be very helpful. There are many things to avoid and experienced people can tell you which ones.
Building a profitable opt-in list doesn’t just happen overnight. It takes a lot of preparation and effort on your part. Opt-in lists are built from scratch, so as your list grows make sure to maintain the quality of your list.
Keep it organized and manageable. Get or hire help if need be, just make sure that your subscribers are happy and satisfied and they will definitely be willing to buy from you.
