How to Build a List and Hurt Your Internet Marketing Business
Yes you read the title right. How to build a list and HURT your Internet marketing business. If you have been around Internet marketing for very long I am sure you have taken advantage of these free downloads offered if you provide your email address or other information. And I use the term "taken advantage of" on purpose because that is mostly what happens. Let me explain.
The reason you are offered these e-books and "special reports" is so get you on a list and then send you offers to purchase every time the person who has you on your list needs a little pocket change. They send you an email and say something like, "Hey check this out it is only available for a limited time and there are only a small number left so go right away and check it out, it will make you a lot of money." Well it will be something similar to that.
Here lavely, and I'm sure you have seen it as well, I am only getting product offers with every email. This happens every day and there is no good content, no good information, just sales pitches. Some do not even go as far as to take the time to tell you how to benefit from the product that they are forcing down your throat. They just say, "Go here quick you will not believe this!", Or something similar to that. I have had to cancel so many autoresponder emails due because of that.
If you want to build a list and hurt your business and reputation you can follow these marketers in their practices. It must be making them sales because many are doing it now. They will eventually start getting some bad comments in the online forums and over the Internet about the way they do their marketing though.
Do not get me wrong, I think building a list can be a great way to boost sales and help your internet marketing business. I would not stoop to this level of marketing though. You can be successful online without bombarding people with sales pitches constantly.
