Your List Building Methods
Now that you have a deeper understanding of how Traffic helps you build your business, it is time to introduce you to even MORE features to help you "Build Your List" of targeted prospects to promote your business to.
There are basically just 2 ways to do this
1. Use somebody's else's method,
2. Do it Yourself,more difficult but more rewarding.
let's look into these in detail
Using somebody else's method is great if you do not have a website of your own
here is a viral method from my friend Troy Wray that shows what I mean
It's free & very good , when you advertise it on the Traffic Exchanges anybody who signs-up in any of the programs joins under you and you are increasing your traffic and list.
On-Line List Builders/Onsite Mailing Programs.
Another way to
build a list of opportunity-seekers to mail your promotions to that has become
very popular in recent times, is to use "On-Site" Downline emailers
where you join
and agree to receive emails from other members in return for being able to send
With these systems, you actually build a downline by referring other people to the program, and then depending on the system and your membership level, you can email your downline from once per day to once per week. And because the amount of people you can email depends on how many people you've referred, these systems are designed so you get minimal emails in return, usually a maximum of 20-30 per week, although from experience it is usually even less than that.
If it doesn't make sense to you how THAT is possible (mail thousands, receive < 20) it is perhaps explained better on the websites involved, but is based on a multi-level matrix or "tree" structure so it does work. In an MLM you can have thousands "below" you but only a few people in your DIRECT upline "above" you and this is the basis of most good co-reg systems.
most of the newer services give you the option to either email your downline, OR a number of other random members based on the size of your downline and/or membership level. So this is a great way to get your message in front of a different bunch of people each time. And these people are all opportunity-seekers or involved somehow in internet marketing so they are highly targeted prospects to advertise your business to, and they have all agreed to receive emails by joining the program so NO spam complaints!
The following is a list of On-Line List Builder mailing systems. All are Free to join and use, and although most have paid membership options with extra benefits INCLUDING residual commissions when people below you upgrade, you are under no obligation to upgrade if you don't wish to, and they are still great valuable services even for free members.
*NOTE: Never upgrade in any program unless you can afford it, and always do your due diligence on any program or system before you spend your hard earned money on your business, but when you CAN afford it , these extra tools that you use for your business can amount to an excellent extra source of income as an added bonus! This is one of the great things about this business - most of the tools and services you use to run your home-business can ALSO earn you money so they not only become self-funding, but can produce a PROFIT rather than being an expense.
You should also note that with the these programs, you don't get the lead's details to add to your own "list" as such, but you send your messages from their websites and they send it to your "list" for you.
As with the Traffic Exchanges, you don't have to join all these right now (although it is a considerably shorter list than that great list of TE's you were presented with a few steps back!). it should be your goal over the next few days to join ALL the free programs below,

Once you are done use the same Bookmarking technique in Firefox that you learnt while setting up your "tabbed browsing" for the Traffic Exchanges to place all the above programs into a single bookmark folder:
- Open Firefox.
- Open each of the co-reg list building sites in separate Tabs.
- Click Bookmarks -> Bookmark This Page. In the dialog window, change the "Name" to "On-Line List Mailers", put a check in 'Bookmark all tabs in a folder' and click OK.
You should now
have a bookmark folder called "On-Line List mailers containing all the
above mailing systems (or the ones you chose to join) so you can easily right-click
on it and choose "Open in tabs" whenever you want to do some List
advertising! You should do this at least once per week (not all of them will
allow you to mail every week for free members, but most will) and more often
if you can.
you should always change the sample emails at least a little to give them your own uniqueness or even better write your own! Remember, if we are all advertising in the same places with the exact same ads they can lose their effectiveness. Don't be afraid to be creative.
