Ways to Build Yourself A Responsive And Profitable List

July 8, 2018 by  

Now, think about list building and the approach I suggest you take, is the concept of making friends and of relationships. You’ve got to give people a reason why they should become a friend. And just like any time that you’re developing a relationship, there’s usually something that you are giving them, and giving them as a reason why they want to get into a friend relationship with you, right?

Just think about all the times where you start making friends. There’s a conversation being made, there’s smiles being given, there’s some kind of a communication that develops that work between their relationship. And this is the same process that you’re going to use in developing your business list.

There is a transaction that’s happening here when you’re building a list. You are going to give them something of value, they’re going to give you something back of value also.

What would that be?

Their name, address and permission to continue the relationship.

And you also give them permission that at anytime they want to discontinue the relationship, they can. So they feel safe and comfortable.

So you’re not asking them to take too big a step in starting this relationship with you. So provide a truly valuable gift in exchange for their name and address and permission to contact them again.

Building Trust.

The way you build trust typically is in your own consistent behavior. People need to believe that you’re predictable.

If you’re always bouncing around and coming up with some hair-brained scheme, that’s always a different thing every week that doesn’t seem to have any rhyme or reason or connection, people won’t trust what you say.

So you have to, you know, trust is earned. You have to become worthy of trust or trustworthy.

You also have to be Believable.

 Have you ever noticed that sometimes things that you tell people that are true, they still won’t believe, isn’t that interesting?

They won’t believe the truth.

This may be because their experience and their background, they have not experienced it. They don’t know anybody who has experienced it. And what you’re telling them is completely foreign to them and they find it unbelievable, even though it’s true.

So how do you get them from unbelievable to truth? Well that’s in your relationship and your trust.

The Quality of things that you present to them has to be of the highest quality you can find.

Now as you progress, you will continually find new quality, right?

And there’s always new things that come out, that you will track it to and you want to share with other people. And your role in this relationship is always to be the most trustworthy person that you can be. And also provide quality content and products and recommendations to the people who entrust you with their well being.

Let’s talked about Hope, one of the most powerful forces in the universe. Some people can have all kinds of odds against them, and what they’re wanting you to tell them is “But we still have hope. And don’t give up, you still have hope. Because I’ve seen people in your condition get to where you want to be”.

Expert opinion and endorsement is another way to build trust.

So your own expert opinions and endorsements of others help people believe you and to trust you quicker.

When you’re communicating with other people, it doesn’t hurt to drop names. That’s if they know somebody that you know, that is in a circle of influence on that person, go ahead and drop that name.

Monetizing your list.

I suggest that if you’re going to be an expert in your field then you keep up on the news of your niche market and be right on the front edge.

One of the things that I suggested you do –

Create a web page.

Let people know that you’re here.

Be the roving reporter with up to date news.

That will position you as somebody to listen to.

Be in the habit of emailing folks when something important comes up, that they need to know about. And if they don’t want to know about it, there’s these links down at the bottom of every one of the things (the unsubscribe button.) All you got to do is click on those and I’m out of your life.

Be that person that people know that when something comes across that’s important, it’s going to come out to them.

Give away Freebies. Give away good ones.

 Go out and find the best, I mean there’s all kind of stuff that you can find to give away as a little gift. But it really helps to give away stuff that’s actually valuable, that actually is worth some money, that maybe you’ve gone out of your way to acquire the rights to be able to do it, and it’s exclusivity really works well too.

Provide excellent articles.

Whether you write them, or somebody else writes them, you should at least be reading them and taking the articles that you really think are good and of high quality to put on your website to be associated with because the glow of that article will shine on you.


Content is just words on paper, on a website. Content is not good enough.

You want Relevant Content.

Because the person at the Search Engine, typing in the words is actually looking something related to, relevant to, what they’re searching.

It needs to have Actionable Content. Now what’s that?

Actionable Content is the words that you put on those pages that get people to take action.

And what actions do we want people to take off a website? Sign up for a list,


Get a Freebie.

Refer us to somebody else.

I mean there’s a whole list of things that you would want people… Click here to get to the next page.

Answer questions.

Give you more information & feedback. All these things.

So every page that you have, you need to have a goal for that page. Actionable Content needs to be on there.

You can do this with Articles.

So the articles, you can write them, and of course if you write them, you know to put actionable content; and you can get articles written by other people on the topic that’s relative to what somebody might be searching for.

Now, how do you make somebody else’s articles, Relevant Content Articles Actionable?

You don’t even have to rewrite them, right? Use an Intro and a Close.

You can write an introductory paragraph on the topic to kind of stir up the problem. Remember this format… we get a problem, we stir it up, we give some solution.

Now in that article that you found, it may do some of this for you, but by you putting your little spin at the front of it and giving a little outline of what the topic’s all about, and then say “Let me introduce you to an article I found by so and so, who I believe is one of the best experts on the topic of… “.

And then there’s the article. And then you give him credit.

Then you say it’s you back again and do the close, and here’s where the action is.

You can write a recap of the important points in the article.

Make big bullet points that people absolutely should not miss.

Then the next thing you want to do is add something to the effect of… “If you’re really interested in knowing more about this, I’ve found what I believe to be the preeminent resource on it.” Provide a resource or link and have them click that link.

The object of the email that you’re sending out with this article or a webpage that has the article on it, it’s not to do the sale on that page. It’s to get them to click that link.

That’s the action that you want. Remember, baby steps.

If people aren’t clicking on your link, you asked them to do too much in one step.

If somebody is not taking the step you want them to take, you need to look at the step you asked them to take, and divide by three.

Break it down into about three more steps so that they can go inch by inch instead of a leap.

Resource recommendations… you want to be making those.

Monetizing your list with special deals that you set up, either your own, or maybe you got some joint ventures that you’ve set up. If you’re doing that, you’d always like to be able to have a special prize, may be a few extra bonuses, some kind of scarcity time limit or quantity limits involved, deadlines to optimize the chance of people taking you up on that offer.

And Follow up, Follow up, Follow up. Is the way to monetize your list.

Do You Believe The Money Is In the “List”? 

As long as I’ve been involved in internet
marketing, people have always said

*The MONEY’S in the LIST*

What does this mean?

Well simply put, it means that you
 can bang your head against the wall
 over and over…

Make sale after sale…

And still get NOWHERE FAST…

Because if you’re NOT building an email list of subscribers you can
 promote to again and again, you have:

  1. NO Business 
2. NO Asset
 3. NO Chance

Sounds harsh I know, but it’s the truth 
(trust me, I learned the hard way).

And if you’re wondering if the money’s 
STILL in the list… the answer is YES.

After all these years, this old adage
 still rings true…

Which is why I’ve dedicated a huge
 part of my business to growing a
 responsive and profitable email list 
that continues to pay me even when I’m

And I want to teach YOU exactly what
 I’ve done, step-by-step.

So if you’re ready to build a HUGE list 
this year, pick up this FREE BOOK and video I made for you.

Remember, even if you’re making money
 online, you’re leaving a lot of it on the table
 without this key ingredient.
