Okay, you’re starting to get the idea that building a list is a really, really powerful strategy for making money online. Once you have that precious list of subscribers, you can make money over-and-over again for years to come.
Now it’s all about driving traffic to your opt-in squeeze page:
Look around you the next time you’re at the mall, and you’ll probably count a hundred people using their wireless phones to text, chat, and browse the web.
Mobile phones and tablets are absolutely huge; some experts even believe they will overtake TV ads in a few years!
What’s more, now is the time to jump in and establish yourself while the competition is still figuring things out. All you have to do is convert your squeeze page into a format compatible with mobile devices (don’t worry; it’s easier than it sounds).
The other great thing about mobile ads is that because this technology is still in its infancy, there are many different networks to choose from.
AdMob (from Google), Mojiva, and InMobi are just a few of the mobile advertising networks you can check out. You can choose from pay per click advertising as well as “cost per thousand impressions .”
Now, what if you could contact an existing list owner and strike some sort of advertising deal? What if you could simply pay for an email advert that would go out to a large subscriber list in your niche and get people to come to your own squeeze page?
Wouldn’t that speed things up and allow you to build the subscriber list much more quickly?
You bet it would, and that’s exactly what you can do if you take advantage of solo ads.
You simply pay a one-time fee so the list owner can recommend your opt in page to his or her subscribers. This can be surprisingly cheap, and it can help you skyrocket your number of subscribers much faster than you ever thought possible!
When you’re ready to give solo ads a try, check out the resources section in the VIP Membership Area where you can see several reputable email list brokers (and not only, you’ll find loads of tools and mechanism all related to list building) that you can use for your solo ads.
Ever hear of Facebook? Of course you have!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, you know that Facebook is the biggest social network with hundreds of millions of dedicated users.
These users live and breathe on this site while keeping up with their friends and families, and this is your chance to grab a slice of the pie and bring them to your squeeze page.
Check this out – Facebook Adsallow you grab some of this mega-traffic while targeting specific demographics, this is super-cool if you are clear on who your target market is!
Let’s say that you know that its mostly single women around the age of 30-40 in the US who are your likely customers, then Facebook ads could work really well for you.
Just like mobile advertising, Facebook is a great alternative to Google AdWords, which has become much more expensive in recent years.
This is another awesome opportunity to build your list quickly and easily, and it won’t even cost you any money! All you have to do is perform a swap — you will send out an email to your list recommending another marketer’s web page, and he will recommend you to his subscriber list.
It’s super simple, but we will go into more detail about this list building technique a little later in the report.
The only caveat with this method is that you already have to have some subscribers, or other marketers won’t want to work with you. Ideally, your list and the other marketer’s list would be around the same size so you would both benefit equally.
On the other hand, if your list is half the size, for example, you can also make it up by sending a second mailing to your list later on.
There are also other ways to make sure you both get a fair deal out of an ad swap, such as using the number of clicks sent as the benchmark instead of the number of emails sent.
This way if your ad swap partner has a much bigger list he can segment it to give you the same number of clicks approximately as he got from the ad to your list.
You can easily find partners to swap with on websites like Safe-swaps.com if you’re in the Internet marketing niche.
If not, however, it is still really easy. You just go out and search for other website owners in your niche who are building subscriber lists. Simply contact those website owners and offer to do an email ad swap with them!
