Building an Email Marketing List
By Megan Corwin
There's a marketing estimate that it takes something like seven contacts with a potential client
before they purchase. Email is a wonderful way to handle these contacts for a variety of reasons:
you can send one message to a large number of people
compared to traditional hard copy marketing it can be a lot less expensive
if you use a list management system you can get instant results like how many people opened
the email and how many "click throughs" there were to the links in the email
The most important part of an email campaign is having a list of qualified email addresses to send
your marketing piece.
So just how are you supposed to get those email addresses? The best method is to have a sign up
form on your website to capture the visitor's information. Here are some DOs and DON'Ts for creating a list for
your online business.
Offer an incentive for them to give their email address. People usually won't give away
their personal information unless they get something in return. Ideas for incentives include: a free report
or guide, entry into a contest, product demo or samples, a complimentary consultation, etc.
Ask for valuable marketing data on the sign-up form. Pick only one or two things to keep
the registration process short and easy. What data could really help you with your marketing? Knowing their
gender, age, location, interests?
It can take time and effort to build your internet marketing list, but the results will be well
So how does someone decide which home business is right for them? Research is the key by reading honest articles
from a variety of sources. This web site seeks to collect a host of ideas and opinions on a variety of
business ideas that your can read and assess for yourself.
Good luck - live long and prosper!
