    Increase Your Asset - Grow an Active List

    Increase Your Asset - Grow an Active List

    The most important asset a internet marketer has is a responsive list of customers. Whether on email, twitter, or facebook, building a list of active subscribers is a strategy that any marketer should focus on since the beginning.

    The average list-building experience starts slowly, as traffic starts pouring into landing pages and prospects subscribe to your list.

    However, this strategy can be frustrating in the beginning, while traffic is still shy.

    That’s when a respected list-building platform comes in handy. List-builders are communities of professionals that subscribe (or buy access) to receive and send messages within the community. Basically, List-Builders are a pool of like-minded professionals looking to improve their businesses, get more traffic, and make more money.

    My Favorite List-Builder

    I’ve written before about my results with list-builders before, so today I want to share specifically my results with ViralUrl.

    For $197/year, ViralUrl allows email blasts every 3 days to 3000 random members in their list.

    I’ve been utilizing their services since february, and I’m very satisfied with the results.

    Previously, I’d been promoting Magnetic Sponsoring, because of the high conversion rates, and for each blast, I’d generate 10+ leads and about a sale/week from MS alone. That’s $80/month, which would cover my initial investment in 2.5 months, leaving me 9.5 months to profit from the ViralUrl services.

    Now, I’ve switched the focus to my own training, the Expand Your Income manual – and even though my landing page does not convert as well as Mike Dillard’s (what’s new?) the prospects I receive are much more targeted because they want to know ME, not magnetic sponsoring or Mike Dillard.

    So here are the updated results: depending on my email copy (I keep experimenting, which makes for a lower average), I may get anywhere from 100-150 visits, and 6-10 leads. I understand this is not outrageously effective, but it brings me great prospects, and I’m building my own list, expanding the reach of personal branding even further.

    If you’re just starting up, and you’re not yet getting the traffic you want, I highly recommend ViralUrl. And if you have a bit more to invest, you can get multiple accounts, and send blasts everyday!

    Either way, be sure to offer something valuable in exchange for your opt-ins. Folks in list-building services are already in the industry and are probably not looking for another home business – they’re looking for training, consulting, tips.. So provide them with something highly beneficial and your results will speak for themselves.

    To growing your list the smart way,

    P.S – ViralUrl also offers an effective url cloaking service (for free, even if you dont join their paid membership) that is great to mask affiliate links and protect your commissions. Check it out:

      Kimbo slice probably will gt beat down on the Ultimate Fighter but it will still be good to watch especially if Bobby Lashely does it also.
