How big is your list? If you have encountered many internet marketers you know a lot of them tell you to build a list.
It's arguably the most talked about thing in internet marketing. I look at list building a little bit different than most people. See, I've spent a few years constantly improving my list building system. I call it a system because I have processes to make list building take very little effort on my part, while still providing immense value to my subscribers.
It's all about setting up passive income streams, what I mean by this is setting up your list building system so that it's basically passive. There are several ways to do this. To effectively make passive income from your list, you need to have several things in place.
You need to have a system of getting subscribers. Once you have an existing list ad swaps are probably the easiest way to build up a bigger list fast and thanks to new software you can completely automate the entire process.
You could also get traffic from other sources, like content you produce. I like to write articles, create high value free reports, make videos and more just to get some continual traffic to my squeeze pages.
Plus if you can get to the top of the search engines, that's a great way to generate some passive subscribers, as long as you put in the work to get there. Since we're talking about passive income I'd like to mention you can pay someone else a small fee to have them do all of this stuff for you.
You could even get some affiliates if you have your own products, this is the ideal way to get a bunch of high quality buying subscribers.
So we talked about getting subscribers, but we did not talk about how you're actually going to make some passive income. The passive income comes from what you offer during the optin process and during your emails.
This takes a lot of effort to find out what works, but it's definitely worth it if you can bring in some nice passive income. You'll want to test different things out, but make sure you monetize the page you send your new subscribers that you redirect them to after they sign up to your list.
You'll also want to find out what products convert and what low and high priced products sell the best to your subscribers, while making sure the products you are promoting are quality of course.
