How to Build a List of Subscribers Fast!


The money is in the list, but not many people are working to build a list.

A large majority of affiliate marketers online are sending their traffic directly to a sales letter with no way of contacting the visitors who didn’t buy.

In this article we’ll talk about the importance of building a list as an affiliate marketer and how you can build one fast.

Building a subscriber list for anyone involved with affiliate marketing is crucial simply because it gives you an opportunity to brand yourself.

Even if you never create a product, you can develop a relationship with your subscribers right from their email inbox.

The more your subscribers see your name and experience the content you share with them the more confident and responsive they will be when it comes to opening and reading your emails.

Without a list, the only people that are getting branded are the ones who own the products you’re promoting to your list.

If you remain nameless, and faceless to your subscribers than it will take a lot longer for them to respond to your emails and even then the number of those who do respond will be low.

So now that you know why it’s so important to you as an affiliate to build a list, how do you go about building one fast?

Here are some simple steps you can follow:

1. Find out what burning questions that people in your market have and put together a freebie that gives them the answers.

That freebie can be a report, a video, an audio interview or even a piece of software.

2. Create a very simple lead capture page or squeeze page with an attention getting headline and four or five bullet points.

3. Setup your opt-in form so it’s visible to your visitor without having to scroll down and then write articles with a link to your squeeze page.

4. Get involved with joint venture giveaways, do ad swaps, and you can also use ezine advertising.

  • Great tips on list building. Will definitely use these – thanks!

  • That’s a good point you make about branding. As an example, coupon sites are hot items right now, so there is a lot of competition among those sites. Yet I wonder how many visitors are there because of the site itself or because they happened to come up high in a search for a specific coupon. They may not even remember the name of the site they were on. Imagine the impact there would be if visitors went first to a specific coupon site and then searched for a particular brand rather than the other way around.
