List building is probably one of the most important components of Internet Marketing Success. Learning the rope to do it right is essential for any serious Internet Marketers.

So what is list building?

A list is a highly targeted collection of contact information from website visitors that have “opt-in” through your web form. The most common information captured is the visitor’s first name and email address.

4 Reasons why you should build a list

1. It allows you to communicate with your list members on an ongoing basis typically through a series or emails and / or newsletters.

If you run a blog and wants to keep your visitors informed of a new post or some exciting industry news, having their contact information allows you to drive targeted traffic to your website. Your list members may even appreciate you taking the proactive steps to keep them abreast of the latest trend. In this way, you build trust and relationship with your members.

2. It allows you to “presell” or build anticipation about the product you are promoting.

This is a very powerful form of marketing strategy. Let’s say you are about to launch an ebook on how to maintain a high end Digital SLR camera. Two weeks before your official launch, you can start to reveal some special tips or secrets to drive anticipation. This creates a greater impact when you finally launch your new product. You will find many large corporations like Apple and Sony adopting this proven approach.

Your subconscious mind holds massive amounts of information that you do not have ready access to. In fact, sometimes it seems that it is as if it purposely hiding from you. However, such is not really the case. It is simply that your brain is like a giant database continuously absorbing and retaining information for future use. Continue reading

Confused by Social Media?

This social media stuff can be intimidating. But there is a method to the social media madness and it can be used for business when applied a certain way.

Choose the Social Media Sites You Want to Use and Set Up Accounts.

I recommend using Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIN as a minimum and start connecting and searching for people you know and building your inner circle.

Use that as a start and remember to start connecting with people online that you meet in personal as well. It allows you to network not just in person but on the internet and more deeply engage with contacts you wouldn’t normally see all the time.

The sorting of these massive amounts of information takes place in your sleep. It is as if a little clerk goes to work in the middle of the night and grabs these bits and pieces of information you have absorbed during the day, sorts and then files them in the appropriate locations to be called upon at a later time. But this mini-clerk in your brain can only go to work when you hit a deep sleep.
