List Building – How You Can Compete in a Competitive Market
Often new Internet business entrepreneurs will shy away from the bigger and more competitive markets. This happens often even when they have a level of expertise in that niche or market. It’s easy to get intimidated when you look at the massive amounts of competition in many of the most popular markets online. So how does the new Internet business person compete among all of this competition? List building is the key to profiting in highly competitive niches.
You compete by focusing your business building efforts on building your list. You focus on driving traffic to pages on your web site called squeeze pages that are designed for one single purpose, to get your prospects information and permission for you to contact them.
Once you have that permission, you will be able to send information to them on an automated basis through your autoresponder service. You will be able to educate your prospects and give them valuable information about your niche which will help build your brand in your niche and trust with your list.
This will also help you develop a relationship with your subscribers. Then you can market solutions to their problems and challenges to them. Let me ask you a question. Would you rather buy from a one time look at a sales page, or from someone that you have already received value from and that you trust? My guess is that you are more likely to buy from people that you trust. I know that is how I prefer to do business.
