Tested and proven
The best way to make money on the Internet is to build your own ezine or opt-in list. This way you can build a relationship with thousands of potential customers all over the world without spending more than a couple hundred dollars a year for the Internet access and the list management tools you use.
Once you have built a list, you can make money through it by selling advertising, doing Joint Venture deals, listing your affiliate programs, etc. There are dozens of ways to make money from your opt-in list, once you learn how to build it.
We have spent the years of our Internet life coming up with the best ways to build opt-in lists, and I am going to show you 7 ways to build your list quickly and easily.
1. Post It Prominently On Every Page Of Your Site
This one should go without saying, but many opt-in list owners still aren't doing it. You need to give people the opportunity to subscribe to your list on every page of your site. The more people you expose to your message, the more that will respond.
2. Add an Ebook Bonus for Subscribing
We first tested this over a year ago and it doubled our daily subscribe rates from our site. It was proven years ago that your sales rates will increase if you add a bonus to a product or service you are selling.
Well, we have proven that more people will sign up for a free newsletter if you also include a free bonus with that as well. There are hundreds of free ebooks floating around the net which you can use for free bonuses. Find one that relates to your site and use it to increase to your number of subscribers.
3. Create a Signature File With Your Ezine
You should have your email software set to include a signature file on every email message you send out. Your signature file should include an ad for your opt-in list along with your free bonus ebook for subscribers.
You will find it is easier to use an ad to get people to subscribe to your ezine than it is to get them to purchase a product. Then, once they are on your list, you build a relationship with them and sell them your products.
4. Submit it to all of the Listings
Continually find places to list your newsletter. For example, pick out some of the main subscribe pages of your competitors and find all of the sites linking to them.
Then, go through and submit your site to the same directories.
5. Trade Ads with other Newsletters
Once you have built up a list of at least a few hundred subscribers, you can start trading ads with other publishers. Create a recommended ezine section (instead of classifieds) and start trading with ezine publishers in every single issue. You publish their ad in your ezine and they publish your ad in their ezine.
If you consistently do this with every issue, your newsletter is going to start growing exponentially.
6. Do a Newsletter Joint Venture
Joint Ventures are one of the best ways to build an Internet business and opt-in list building is no exception. Find three to five other ezine publishers who would like to trade with you and do this.
After someone subscribes to your ezine, have another page there which asks them if they would like to subscribe to your partner's ezines (give the names and a short description of each). Then, have your JV partners follow the same strategy in return. If you were receiving 20 subscribers a day from your site, five publishers teamed up together could be doing 50 to 100 new subscribers a day.
7. Use a Pop-Up Ad for Collecting the List Members
I know a lot of people don't like popup boxes, but I have found they will triple your subscription rates. Basically you can pick up a Java script that will run a popup box on your site from here for free.
