Content Creation and Content Marketing can turn into a highly responsive list community of hungry prospects eager to invest in your resources. If you do it right. The problem is most people do not do it right. Don’t be most people, because most people are broke.

3 Tips for Doing It Right

Tip #1 – ABLB = Always Be List Building – Many marketers will start out aggressively building their list but when they reach a certain size, they let up.

It’s human nature to set a goal, achieve the goal, and then relax. That is the exact opposite of what you want to do to be successful. Once you reach a goal, celebrate it, and then keep on doing what got you to the goal. If you want to be massively successful, do even more of what got you there.

This is especially true when it comes to list building. You always want to have new people joining your list community.

Tip #2 – Take Great Care of Your List Community – Notice the phrase “list community.” Your list community is not just a bunch of email addresses to which you market your resources. It’s a community of people with live hearts and live minds, looking to you to lead them in achieving their dreams.

If you can’t get into that and enjoying leading and taking care of your community, then you are probably in the wrong business. This does not mean you have to be an extrovert. You just need to be able to take great care of your community and lead them.

And here is the bottom line:

Take great care of your list community and they will take great care of you.

Tip #3 – Create Multiple Streams of List Building – When I first came online full-time in 2007 there were a few really good ways to consistently build your list. Now it is so much easier and simpler to create multiple streams of list building.

The article you are reading right now is a great way to build your list. Create your content and get it on EzineArticles and other Article Directories.

Then leverage Social Media for list building. But wait a minute Jeff, aren’t the people on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and LinkedIn already on your Social Marketing list?

Yes they are. But (and this is a crucial but) they are not on a list you control. Any one of those sites can shut you down for any reason or no reason at all.

That’s why you need to leverage the Social Media sites so that you are always inviting people to join the list you own and have control over, your own list community.Bonus Tip – To turn your content into a powerful list building stream, you’ve got to create content regularly.
