List Building Tips

In today’s post I’m going to give you some list building tips that will save you both time and money.

If you’ve heard it once you’ve heard it a thousand times; “The money is in the list.”  But what if you don’t yet have a list?  How are you going to get at the money that is in it?

First of all the money is in the relationship that you have with the list.  You could have the biggest list around but if they don’t like you they will either unsubscribe or ignore you all together.

The best list building tip that I can give you is to give it away.  What I mean is the money!  That’s right, the money!  Let me explain…

One of the fastest and best ways to get a great responsive list is to get it from someone else that has a great relationship with them already.  This is actually easier than it sounds.

What you need to do is create something like an ebook or a product and allow a list owner to sell it to their list.  The secret is that you let the list owner keep 100% of the money and you get the buyers list.

A buyers list is so much more important than a prospect list because you know that every one of those people are action takers and will spend money online for something that they want.  Most will tell you that a buyer is 15 times more likely to spend money than an interested prospect.

It doesn’t end there.  Now that you have a buyers list you must cultivate your relationship with the people on that list.  Let them get to know you by providing good content, not just sales pitch after sales pitch.

Now rinse and repeat this process over and over again because people will opt out of your list no matter how good you are.  That is just how people are.  Always keep building for that reason.  The trick is to get more people joining your list than leaving your list, and that just goes back to what I was saying about being good at connecting with people so that they know like and trust you.

There you have it.  Those are a few list building tips that will help you get started in Internet Marketing and thrive…

Easy App Creator

Apps are the next big thing!  They are here now and they are absolutely killing it.  It doesn’t matter if you are an Apple or Android user; you probably have a ton of them already.

A lot of people would really like to have their own app built but it can really cost you a bundle depending on what you are looking for.

When you think of apps most people think about something like Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja and other game oriented apps that get a lot of publicity.  The truth is that there are a lot of other types of apps out there than just games.

It is believed that one day apps will replace web browsers as the way that we will access the Internet and communicate online.  You are already seeing this now with all of the mobile apps that connect to social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.

The problem is that most apps cost thousands of dollars to build because it takes hiring a programmer or a company to build them for you.  That is… It used to cost you thousands of dollars to create apps before but now there are some options for building certain types of them yourself for free or almost free.

I was on a webinar recently and they mentioned a great website that has an easy app creator.  It is called Buzz Touch pictured below.

At BuzzTouch.com you can get started by creating a free account and creating a cool app that you or your clients can get a lot of use out of.

From what I can see your best bet is to create apps for offline clients, which is huge right now.  You can make them a great app for a brick and mortar store that will both bring in new clients and bring back old ones.

So check out Buzz Touch and be sure to return and let me know what you think about their easy app creator.
