What does this have to do with building my list to grow my business you may ask. Although building your list technically is not earning interest, the concept of growth can still be applied.
Over the last few years, it seems like one of my great sources of prospects for my list has started to lose its footing. More and more of the people who would have been viewing my ads, are blasting through them simply for the opportunity to earn a few cents. I’m not saying that a little reward here and there is bad, just that it has led to more people who are surfing for pennies instead of using the exchanges for their original purpose which was to share a business opportunity and see the offerings of others that may be of interest to you. When viewing 100’s or even 1000’s of sites a day, with shorter timers, in my opinion very little attention is actually being paid to what is being shown.
However, if only some of these aspiring business owners would see the real value in earning credits in a traffic exchange, they may start to change the way they surf and advertise. What they need to realize is that each and every credit could turn into a prospect to build your list. It has been widely accepted throughout the business community that each person on your list will be worth $1.00 per month over time.
For example, a couple of the products I recommend to use to build your list would be
- An Autoresponder – I recommend RocketResponder
- Tracking software – I use Trck.me
- Ad Source – a good one for building relationships is CTP/Kore4
I am using these as an example simply because they are something all business’s need.
Lets say you only get 1 new person on your list each day, that would be 30/month. Continue doing this and the next month your list has grown to 60. Continue to advertise consistantly and before you know it you may have built a list of 100, 500, 1000 or more. Based on industry averages, just think build your list to 100 and thats approximately $100 a month potential. Now you have your own list to promote any of your products.
Now if you have just one person from your list purchase each of the products above, you would earn approximately $22.00. Now think as your list grows, you have 1 person a week take advantage of joining these programs. That would be $88 without even counting potential sales from your other main product. Add some great content to your emails and offer good products, and slowly your business will grow. People will get to know you and trust you, so when they see other products you recommend, they will want to get them from you. Win-Win
Can you see how taking the time to stand out from the crowd and build your list can pay off and help to make an income that could really start to make a difference in your life versus hours and hours of blindly surfing with only pennies or a few dollars to show for it?
I hope after seeing this, you will also want to build YOUR list and take advantage of the credits you earn. I get excited at each new goal reached for my list building. Let’s do this!
I look forward to hearing what you think!
