The first thing you need to know is that so called list building programs come in all shapes and sizes. What you should concentrate on, is building your very own list of subscribers in what ever niche you are working in. This is a list that you could mail to every day if you wanted. Obviously, you don’t want to be doing that. If you did, I could almost guarantee that your list would get smaller by the day. Do not bombard them with useless junk that will almost certainly get deleted before they read the first sentence. Create your own list building concept and stick to it. If you need help there, get a mentor who shows you how to do it. If you want to be successful, do what the successful do. The biggest guys on the net have all had, or still have mentors.

You want to be delivering valuable free content to your list by means of ebooks, reports, software etc. Build a relationship to your subscribers, give them valuable freebies, gain their trust, and respect the fact that they trust you. This will bring you massive advantages and revenue in the future. We have all heard the saying, “The money is in the list”.This could never be more true to the word.

Just one important thing to remember here. If in the past you have built a list in the pet care niche, please do not start sending them to a weight loss program you may now be promoting. That is, unless it is a weight loss program for pets. The times I have seen this happen is just unreal. It would be a waste of their time and yours. So, just don’t do it.

Now having said that, some of the so called gurus, say, you have to be passionate about what you are selling or it just won’t work. These people do get involved in joint ventures though and end up selling every thing that they think can generate profit. So just what are they passionate about?

Well, that statement about passion, as far as the promotion is concerned,is a load of bull.
They will have a list building concept in place and as long as the list fits in the particular niche they are promoting, they will send an email to their list promoting someone elses product. We should know now what they are passionate about.

Yes I am passionate about what I do and what I like to do most is make money. Amongst a load of other things,I am also passionate about my list. I enjoy sending them everything I think is valuable and FREE!

Now and again I will send them to a product that I am promoting. This could be in any niche but, if my actual list is not interested in that product, and I should know that, I won’t send it to them. To make it simple, if I started promoting an acne cream because I know it converts, I set up a new landing page, sqeeze page or what ever you want to call it, directing them to a free ebook or report on a natural acne treatment. To get that free info they must obviously sign into my list. Now I know that they are interested in skin care or to be precise, acne. This is called target marketing.
On the back end there would be the product I am promoting. If they do not buy, no problem. I have them in my list and my auto responder will follow up. Of course I would always follow up on them with free info on acne and the free ebook or report that they recieved would be guiding them to my end product.

Do not mistake a safelist method for a list that you have built. If you cannot send your list a mail when you feel fit, then you are restricted to a time limit in which you can mail that list. This is a safelist method and has nothing to do with your own list building concept. However, these do work and you can get good conversions. It all depends on what you are trying to get over to them. If you offer them a free software, let’s say a link cloaking software, why the hell should they not take you up on that. If you are smart enough, you can target the people using the safelist and switch them over to your own list.

I am not going to get into that one now but I will follow up on that in another article. Get your list building concept up and running and start building relationships. They will pay you for it.
