List Building Trick

Today I’m going to go over a little list building trick that I learned a bit ago.  I wish that I would have implemented it when I first started out but hindsight is always 20/20.

The first thing that you need to do for this list building trick to work is a good 10 to 20 page PDF report filled with some good information on a topic within your niche.

Next you will need a way to give it away but this might be difficult if you don’t already have a list to send it to, which is the whole reason that you want to learn about this list building trick.

What you need is a joint venture (JV) partner that does have a list and is willing to send an email blast out for you.  But why would someone with a list send out your report to his/her list?  Ah-ha, therein lies the list building trick!

You want to give the JV an incentive to mail for you but if you are just starting out and don’t already have statistics on a great converting product they probably won’t.

The list building trick is this: Make an agreement with the JV that he/she will get 100% of the product sales and price it at about $7.  $7 products generally sell very well and that will take care of the incentive part of why the JV will mail for you.

So if you haven’t figured it out by now the list building trick is that the JV will get all of the money and you will get all of the opt-ins.  These opt-ins are far more valuable than leads because they are all buyers!

A list building trick like this is worth its weight in gold because everyone knows that it is much easier to market to customers that have already bought from you than to a lead that just opted-in to get something for free.

Your next question is probably about how to find potential JV partners in your niche in order to get started implementing this list building trick?

It’s easier than you think!  Just go to Blogs.com/TopTen and you will find tons of them.  Send them an email with your proposal and make some new connections.  Remember, with this list building trick it is about volume; so don’t get discouraged if you get rejections or no response at all.  With this method it is a numbers game.

I hope that you enjoyed this list building trick.  Be sure to leave a comment.
