Sooo… List Building.
No, I am not going to talk about it today. It’s not the time yet.
As a matter of fact, next week won’t be list building week either.
You know why?
Because I am lining up some great bloggers who ‘ve been there, ‘ve done that, and they need another week to write down all the wisdom and all the secrets they know about list building.
Meanwhile, I want to talk to you about something very intriguing – to me, anyway: the results of the list building poll we all took about a week ago.
Let’s take a look at it again:
According to the results, I divided my readers into
3 List Building Groups
Group 1. 34% of you, poor unfortunate souls without a list, will be happy to know that we’ll take care of you and teach you anything you ever need to know about list building.
I will also include the 18% that do have an opt-in form, but going nowhere with it, and 4% with unresponsive list.
Group 2. Most of you (36%) do have a list, doing something right here, since it is growing, but really need some advice on how to supercharge it.
Group 3. Amazing webmasters who have not problems with their lists whatsoever, meaning they are growing by leaps and bounds and are very responsive: 6%.
Now that I pointed out the obvious (after all, anyone can see the results by clicking… well, “View Results”), I am getting to the meat of the post.
What Do YOU Know That We Don’t?
We all have little tricks up out sleeves – even those of you who are not too happy with list building at the moment.
But especially YOU, the elite 6% – we want to know what makes it so easy for you to build a great list!
As you know, I am huge on readers’ participation and this is one of those times you can get your face – or your link, I should say, in front of thousands of my readers by spilling your beans on the topic.
Do it in the comments below.
I will put together a post based on your tips and tricks – of course, only quality ones will be included. The post will be published during my List Building week.
Remember, we are NOT looking for the basics here, like:
- put an opt-in form
- give away free stuff
- use popup form
We want the REALLY good stuff!
List building floor is yours!
