Are you a service professional who wants to add more people to your list? I have been hearing from a lot of service professionals lately who would love to add more people to their lists, but they are not sure how to invite people to their lists and how often to do that. In this article you will learn my top three tips for building your list authentically and effectively.
But first, why should you build your list? Your list has people who know, like and trust you. When you publish your newsletter and share tips with people on your list, you are building relationships with them. And as they get to know you more, they will be much more likely to purchase your products and services.
How often should you build your list? You should build your list every day. This way you will be getting more prospects every single day, you will be able to start building relationships with them and let them know about your products and services. The more people you have on your list, the more successful your business will be. It is that simple. Here are my three tips to help you build your list every day:
1. Commit To Taking Action Every Single Day
Nothing happens until you make a commitment to make it happen. Add list building to your schedule. Building your list every day is the single most important action you will take for growing your business!
2. Automate As Much About Your List Building As You Can
List building becomes much more fun and much easier when you automate as many activities as you can. This way some of your list building will be automatic, freeing you up for other marketing activities. Here are examples of three building list actions that you can automate:
- When you submit your articles to EzineArticles, have your articles posted automatically to Twitter.
- Create an account so that you can pre-schedule your social networking posts on Twitter and Facebook
- Automate posting of your blog posts to LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter.
3. Decide On Actions You Will Take To Build Your List
When people say “list building”, what they mean is taking a specific action to invite people to start receiving your newsletter. There are many different list building activities, such as blogging, social networking, article marketing, search engine optimization and more.
Before you can start building your list, you need to decide which marketing activities you will use to build your list.
