Everyone is always talking about how the money is in the list. While this is true, since that statement was made many things have changed. The biggest of these changes being social networks and blogging. While you can use both of these platforms for building your email optin list what you might not have released is your followers and your blog readers are also part of your “list”.
Over the last few years social marketing via my fanpage found here at Sean Supplee’s fan page and my blog (this one along with others) have generated so much new traffic and conversions in sales. This is why I call this my extended list and why I join just about every new social network and take an active part in it. I also make sure any new products and sites I launch also have a blog attached to it.
While this might seem like a lot of work it really isn’t, if you stick to these few basic rules. (I know social networks can be a huge time sink and distract you)
The Simple Rules
1. Don’t get distracted go on for what you needed to do and get back off
2. When you write up an email to send to your subscribers you can also often times create this into a blog post (minus a few key points only your subscribers get to see) or a short little update on all social networks to your new blog post.
3. Understand you should take a few minutes out of every day to do some interaction and connect with people. Feeling to much like a robot of posting endless blog post ads or not connecting with others will make your social network posts rather unresponsive.
Following these 3 simple rules and sticking to them can have a huge impact on your overall “list of the future” allowing you to tap into a seemingly endless list. Expanding your audience is key to building a profitable business.
