List Building for Newbies
If you’re struggling to to build a list, but don’t know where to start. Or if you have built a list of subscribers, but on-one is buying from you? Then this list building for newbies, maybe just the strategy you need to make money online.
“This post, List Building for Newbies contains important information and tips about how to get free subscribers and uncover the list building success secrets that you won’t find anywhere else. Without a strong list, you won’t have a stable source of online income”.
Most newbies, and even some old timers think that if they focus on building a list, its going to make them money. But the truth is that building a list is only the first step. I know of people who have big lists (more than 10,000 subscribers) but they still don’t make any money online.
That’s because, the size of the list is not important. What’s important is the relationship you have with your list. This is incredibly important, if you want to sell somebody, something, you first need to establish some sort of relationship, especially if you want to get free subscribers, you need to offer value first, in order to get them to be interested in getting more information from you.
They Say the Money is in The List

You need to deliever great content in order to build a following. Then once you have established trust and built rapport with your readers, the next step is to get those readers to respond to the recommendations that you make, that will directly benefit them in some way.
Because, if your readers don’t trust you, or don’t believe you are giving then good advice, then they are unlikely to buy from you. Making money online is way more than just building a list and sending out offers. You need to establish a solid relationship in order to build a great list and a great list is a responsive list.
Eight Ways to Build a GREAT List.
1. It’s not just the size of the list. It’s the relationship you have with the list, which actually creates money for you.
This might sound obvious, but you could be reaching out to the wrong people, which is actually pretty common among online marketers. If you’re promoting some product or solution then it needs to be something that your readers are interested in. The readers should match the product your are promoting.
For example, what if you were promoting ‘daily videos‘ that promise to answer questions about marketing. But the people who have signed up, are more interested in getting emails about gardening. Would they want to buy your videos about marketing?
Absolutely not, because what you are promoting, is completely different to what they are interested in reading about.
Another reason why you might not yet be making money from your list is you’re NOT contacting them frequently enough.
You should be reaching out to your list, (in my personal view), at least weekly, if not daily. Some people might think that’s too much. Monthly is probably too infrequent. But as your average prospect spends less than five seconds a day thinking about you and your business, daily may not too much at all.
But, remember that it depends upon your niche and the quality of your content. As the content needs to be engaging enough, so that your readers, not only open your email, but also read it. If they are receiving your content / stories / interesting articles daily, and it’s too much for them, they’re probably not the right prospect for you.
If your niche is Internet marketing, your readers are probably checking their email several times a day. So, sending daily emails might be OK.
4. Consistency is key.
But whatever you do. Consistency is just as important as, frequency…
How often do you email them? Is it every day, or two – three days, or weekly? How often are you staying in front of your prospect? This is what consistency is all about. For example, if you email them every day for a week, and then they don’t hear from you for a month, guess what? That list is not going to last for long. Yet, I see this happening, all the time.
New prospects (leads) have short-term memories. And although many Online Marketers initially get excited when first building their list and they start out emailing their new contacts regularly. All to often they get despondent, when they don’t see immediate results. They tend to then lose interest in sending further emails, or worse they stop sending out emails altogther.
Then six months later, when they come back to their list and start sending emails again, they’re surprised to find they are not getting any opens at all, and they wonder why?
If someone subscribes to your list and they get a few emails from you, then you don’t email them for a month or two, they will probably forget you. You should always be conscious of this, and keep in touch with them on a consistent basis. This is why having a prewritten series of emails, with engaging content, already set up in your autoresponder, is an important first step.
6. You need to work your list or it will decline in Value.
Here’s a tip I learned from Dan Kennedy. Your list is a very unique asset which needs constant work. It’s important to keep a healthy degree of paranoia about your email list. Because unlike like gold, or real estate, its value will NOT increase over time by ignoring it.
Your email list is an ‘organic asset‘ by which I mean, it’s perishable and it can expire. Think of it this way, it’s either improving, or it is decaying. You must actively take steps to improve the responsiveness of your list and to also improve your relationship with your list. Otherwise it will die away. And if it’s neglected, it will die out completely.
7. Keep your Readers interest in mind
But, that doesn’t mean you can’t promote offers to them. You’re trying to run a profitable business so, don’t be afraid to promote products and services. But that doesn’t mean you should say, buy this, buy this, buy this, because if you do, you will burn out your list very quickly.
You still want to be engaging and interesting. You want to educate them and give them a reason to want to read what you have written. You need to have the readers best interest in mind and your offers should provide a solution to a problem that your readers may have.
You will soon notice that in this post, my marketing is providing a solution to to a problem that many newbies have when it comes to building a list. I’m soon going to be making an offer. Sometimes it’s a very obvious offer, and sometimes it’s much more subtle. But it’s alway incredible value and comes with a solid refund gurantee.
8. Copywriting skills: Never stop improving them.
You should always be working on improving your copy-writing skills, as this is an important skill to master. The ability to put words on a page and influence your readers is one of the most powerful and profitable skills you can posses. Some people pick it up really quickly, and others it can take years to get it. But it’s something worth studying and practicing.
When you are writing an email, or even content on a post, make sure to encourage responsiveness. Ask them to reply to the email, leave a comment, or contact you in someway. That way, you can actually respond to them, if they have any questions.
It might sound surprising, but responding and following up with readers is VERY RARE in this Industry. So, the moment you respond to them, you suddenly become a real person in their eyes. They feel a little connection with you. They become more responsive as prospective buyers. So don’t discourage them from contacting you.
It’s all about persistence and follow up. Always put your readers interests first and be soft on the selling and subtle is better than being pushy when it comes to putting an offer in front of your readers. But alway make sure that your offer is relevant and solves a real problem.
Remember, that when it comes to making sales online, most of the struggles are due to not enough traffic coming to your site and that means not enough people are reading your content. Which makes getting traffic absolutely vital and one way to get high quality targeted traffic is by having a list of responsive email subscribers, who read your content.
