As the saying goes, the money is in the list. What do you mean by that? Essentially it means if you don’t have an email list you are missing big times on the opportunity to make money online. Regardless of what you are sell or promote, a list is a very important Internet marketing tool.
A list enables you to create a community of hundreds or even thousands of people who understand and have interest in your online business. A list also allows you to communicate with your responsive inner circle on daily basis.
Quite a number of people lose their online income when Google bans their Adwords Pay Per Click or Adsense account. A responsive email list frees you from the nightmare of losing your Internet business when the big guys such as Google pulls the plug from you. You should not build an Internet income that is too dependent on any specific advertiser.
It is no easy task to build a responsive and strong list. One effective ways to build and grow your list is by using Facebook fan page. Facebook is a good social networking media site to garner lots of traffic to your site. There countless Facebook fan pages for various business. Fan page is one effective way to develop social media presence and use it to generate list of subscribers.
You don’t need to pay a single dime to drive traffic using Facebook fan page unlike PPC such as Google Adwords. Setting up a fan page is quite straightforward much like the way you set up your Facebook profile. Incorporate as much as possible the relevant information about your business on the page. Also include links your list and various free downloads. Do consider offering people who click on the ‘like’ of your fan page with goodies and rewards such as discount coupons for your products or services.
One of the main advantage with using fan page to collect email list is that the email accounts are qualified and real unlike normal opt in email where a user can just create temporary email account to access freebies and then later removed or ignore it once they download the freebies.
