How To Easily Build A Profitable List From Your Blogs
List Building March 20, 2013 John Merrick
The money is in the list! …I know that saying is bordering on cliché – everyone tells you to build a list.
But they do it for good reason. Building a list of email subscribers really is the most important and profitable thing internet marketers can do in virtually any niche.
Now there are several ways you can use your blogs to build a list. The standard method is to just have an opt-in form on your sidebar much like I do on this blog.
Our Covert Social Press theme has an inbuilt function to serve an unobtrusive pop-under ad when someone clicks on something – and that’s a great way to show them a squeeze page.
There are tons of list building plugins for WordPress out there too, ranging from adding an opt-in form at the bottom of your posts, to showing fancy light box pop-up squeeze pages. Our own Covert Messenger and Covert Action Bar plugins are great for getting people to click on something – and it would be a very good strategy to send them to a squeeze page.
However, all of that is really just methods of displaying your opt-in form – important yes – but only one small step towards getting people to opt-in.
There are 3 additional critical components you need in order to successfully build a list from your blogs.
#1 – You Need An Enticing Offer
In order to get people to part with their email address and join your newsletter. You need to offer them something in return. Usually this means an “ethical bribe” in the form of some free content (report, videos, downloads etc.)
This also has to be well suited to your blogs audience. Offering a report on SEO to people who are reading articles about knitting won’t do you any good. That’s why we usually advocate building many niche blogs instead of one general topic one (at least if your aim is list building and affiliate marketing)
#2 – You Need A Good Looking Squeeze Page That Converts
Even if you have the best offer ever laser targeted to your audience. It still won’t work if your squeeze page fails to convince them that is the case. You need a professional looking squeeze page that both inspires confidence in the viewer and makes them want what you have to offer.
#3 – You Need A Follow Up Series That Convert Subscribers Into Customers
This of course is the whole point of list building in the first place. When people opt-in you need to a follow up email series in place and it needs to do 3 things; deliver your freebie, build a relationship with your subscribers and most importantly convert them into paying customers.
While getting your opt-in form or squeeze page on your blog in some form is pretty easy. Completing the 3 crucial steps above can be a bit hard, especially if you don’t know how.
