3 Effective Ways to Start Your List Building

Let me ask you this, regarding your web browsing habit. What is the average length of time that you stay on any website before you move on to the next? You will be surprised that generally, people spend less than four minutes on any website especially if it’s the first time that they have been there. Perhaps that is why it is called web browsing in the first place. But this is not a good news if your into internet marketing or making money online especially if your goal is to start a list building campaign.

The most important thing to remember is that every visitor to your site, no matter how long or how short his stay can be, is a potential customer or client and therefore it is always a priority to get them interested enough for them to give you their contact details. But everybody knows it is easier said than done when it comes to enticing people to give their email address. For this reason I have listed three effective ways to a good list building strategy.

1. Offer an ebook

People love free stuff and ebooks have long been an attractive product that internet marketers have used for over a decade already. For example, if your website is all about dogs and dog supplies, why not offer a free ebook on how to properly take care of a specific dog breed? Dog lovers will surely love this free offer and they will willingly list themselves on your site just to get that free ebook.

2. Offer a free product

Ebooks have long been a popular free product offered by internet marketers. They are generally easier to create and also very easy to distribute. Create one useful ebook and you can create a buzz word for your business. People who have benefited from any ebook generally spread the word all over the internet. A how-to-guide in the form of an ebook is quite popular with everybody. If you are in the jewelry business, you can probably offer an ebook on how to better appraise a certain type of gem.

3. Offer a discount

You can invest some money into hiring a software developer and create a certain software or tool that can be very useful for other people. One such example will be the various plug-ins that are offered to bloggers. All that a person needs to do is to sign up and leave their emails in exchange for that plug-in which in turn will give a specific benefit to that person. It will cost you a bit of money to create such a tool but the rewards that you can reap from it will be worth every cent.
