  3. 3. http://www.probloggingsuccess.com Jane SheebaEmail list building is something that is permanently on every internetmarketer’s to-do list.Email marketing is not dead. It is golden.It gives you a golden opportunity to land directly into your targetcustomer’s inbox. If you don’t understand the importance oflanding directly on someone’s inbox, think about this: How many blogs are started every day (given that every Tom and Dick canstart a free or a “reasonably expensive” blog now-a-days)? How many people create Squidoo lenses? How many Hubpages are there on a given topic? Youtube videos? Ezine articles?`
  4. 4. http://www.probloggingsuccess.com Jane SheebaSure, all the above forms of content provide information (but I have toadmit that most of it is crap!). But look at the noise. Will you be able tostand out, get noticed and be heard, among all this noise?But what if when you land directly on someone’s inbox? That’s morepersonal. You cut out 99% of the noise and your chances of being heard andnoticed are super high.This can only be accomplished via email marketing.So how do you start building an email list? After all, you need to havepeople’s email address if you need to reach out to them, right?Let me share a 3 step strategy (that works always) to build your email listfast.But before that, in order to capture and save one or multiple email lists andalso to send bulk (manual or autoresponder) emails you will need anautoresponder service.
  5. 5. http://www.probloggingsuccess.com Jane SheebaSince Aweber and Mailchimp are two biggies in the area, make sure you read my comparison of Aweber and Mailchimp and grab asuitable autoresponder for yourself (you cannot do email marketing without an autoresponder service!). Aweber Vs Mailchimp: Email Autoresponder Face-OffBy the way, for more autoresponder comparisons and tips visit Best Autoresponder Tips (another site of mine!)OK now let’s get to the meat of this post List building weapon: Guest bloggingNothing can beat guest blogging when it comes to building an email list.With guest blogging you get to perform on a stage which already has a verybig crowd as audience.Whenever you write a killer post you naturally will have the urge to publishit on your own blog. But if you publish your best post on a blog that has abigger audience than yours, then you can get more eyeballs on your blogpost.
  6. 6. http://www.probloggingsuccess.com Jane SheebaNot to mention, if your blog post is of great quality and has useful,practically applicable stuff, it will be naturally well received and shared bythe people who read it.The trick is to get your excellent post in front of more eyeballs though! Andthat can be quite easily achieved through guest blogging.In short, guest blogging helps you cross the number barrier – the numberof people who get to “see” your post in the first place – and then the trafficand shares you get through those people automatically follows (if yourcontent is good enough, that is). Create landing pagesWhile you are at guest blogging, one of the most important benefits you canexpect to receive is “traffic” (of course there are connections, popularity,links, etc.).When your guest post gets published on a popular blog, there are so manypeople to share that post to their social circle.
  7. 7. http://www.probloggingsuccess.com Jane SheebaThere are lots of people who are waiting to get their first commentsubmitted on your guest post.There are so many people who have added that popular blog’s RSS feeds toget it automatically shared on their Twitter, Facebook or Google+ stream(ya, the joy of being popular!).Automatically, even if you want it or not, you *will* get loads of traffic.From my experience with guest blogging I can say that 10% of the traffic(the average daily visitors of that blog) will come to your blog. What are you going to do with that traffic?I mean, you should have a goal, right?You may want to convert that traffic into your newsletter subscribers (themain goal of this post), sell your e-book, or anything like that.If you get those people to land on your homepage, you are not going toconvert them. Trust me.
  8. 8. http://www.probloggingsuccess.com Jane SheebaCreate landing pages or squeeze pages on your blog. Copyblogger is the oneof the blogs that has a lot of such landing/squeeze pages.You can basically create two types of such pages 1. A hub page – A page on a particular focused topic. This page has awesome information (as a teaser) on the specified topic and also has additional links that point to your blog posts. Plus an optin form that requires people to sign up if they want to receive additional information about that topic (of course make sure you have set your autoresponders right in order to deliver what you promise).Examples of hub/squeeze page:List Building: Strategies To Build An Email ListContent Marketing: Success Strategies To Market Your Blog
  9. 9. http://www.probloggingsuccess.com Jane Sheeba 2. An email-optin landing page – A page designed specifically with ONE purpose: getting people on your list . This page should list the benefits of being on your list, highlight the importance of any freebie you are offering (like an e-book, video or an audio course, autoresponder based e-course, etc.) and should be enticing enough for people to join your list.Example of my optin pageFree E-booksWhile you guest blog you normally will have an opportunity to add a link ortwo to your blog in your author bio. Use those links wisely and instead ofmerely linking to your home page, link to one of the converting pages.
  10. 10. http://www.probloggingsuccess.com Jane Sheeba Don’t be shyMost internet marketers are pushy while some (but still a big number)are…. shy. They shy away to ask people to buy or to sign up.With online marketing, if you don’t clearly tell people what they need todo, you can’t expect them to do anything.Internet is a place where everyone is busy. The attention span is very short(they say its 3 seconds; too bad!). So if you leave people confused for those3 seconds they are just going to leave without taking any action.So don’t be shy to tell clearly what you want people to do when they land onyour page and when they are about to leave your page.To build an email list fast, you should have a prominent call-to-action,above the fold, in your landing page (I am using the feature box optin). Youshould not stop at this, though, since one is not usually enough.
  11. 11. http://www.probloggingsuccess.com Jane SheebaThrow your optin forms at the sidebar and also at the end of the post in away that people don’t miss to notice it. Especially, by inserting your optinform at the end of the post, you are giving people a nice chance to takeaction as soon as they finish reading your post (and may be getting ready toleave).I highly recommend two plugins to help you in this matter 1. Optin Skin – To add gorgeous optin forms to your blog. Their skins are very beautiful. And, you could add beautiful forms WITH social share buttons (something unique) to your blog. 2. Immediate List Building Pro – This plugin serves many purposes apart from helping you to add optin forms. A winner in my book. Read my full review of the plugin here.Pop ups also work great if you use them in such a manner so thatyou don’t annoy your readers.
  12. 12. http://www.probloggingsuccess.com Jane Sheeba Email list building: TakeawayThis three step strategy surely does work. It works for me. Basically, guestblogging is a wonderful way to grab the attention of the crowd.And the other two tips, that is, creating a landing page and putting upmultiple optin forms (without annoying the readers, of course), arepreparing your blog for better conversion of the traffic you get via guestblogging.Are you into email list building?
