Building a Mailing List to Earn Passive Income Profits Over and Over
A mailing list is a powerful tool when it comes to generating money quickly, easily, and repeatedly. It takes time to build and cultivate a list, but it is well worth it. If you are in business for yourself you can use your list to create back end sales and develop repeat customers. If you run a home business you can use your list to recruit members and diversify your income. And even with no business background whatsoever, you can build a list and use it to earn money through internet affiliate marketing. Just how profitable can a list be? Well it depends on a lot of things like the size of the list, how targeted the prospects are, and how many times it has been used with a particular product stream. But a list is profitable no matter what. One example is when the famous Robert Allen used his list of over 11,000 people (which took him 9 months to build) to generate nearly $100K in less than 24 hours. And that list was then used over and over again for ongoing passive income.
You will need a website to build a list, but it does not need to be fancy or extravagant in any way. In fact, most of the successful internet marketers use very simple webpages that draw in traffic and get people to hand over their email addresses. Your goal is to get as many people as possible to your website, and then to get as many of those visitors as possible to give you their names and email addresses through your submission form. If you can perform these two duties, getting traffic to your page and then getting email form submissions, your list will grow quickly and limitlessly. In time you will be able to market niche related products, services, and businesses to generate profits on simply by clicking your mouse. Trust me, its possible to earn substantial amounts of money from a well cultivate list.
The part that most people have the hardest time with is generating a substantial amount of website traffic. It is the foundation of any online income, and without it nothing will happen. You can pay for traffic, but you may also choose to build free traffic. There are many free marketing methods that you can use to drive targeted traffic to your website. These include article marketing, blogging, social networking, link building, SEO, classified advertising, forum posting, and the list goes on. Using free traffic techniques I drive thousands of visitors to my sites each day. It takes some work to build a solid web presence, but once you do everything happens quite easily.
Once your have a website or webpage that is getting substantial traffic, you should have no problem building your list. But in order to get your visitors to willingly hand over their email addresses and the right to contact them, you will likely need to offer them something of value in exchange. This could be as simple as offering a newsletter, ebook, or free resource. Find something that you can offer for free, giving your visitors incentive to give you their info. As your list of targeted names and emails grows, you will have more and more earning power at the click of a button.
