Yes, blogging is a business for most of us.
However, only a few will succeed. In making money blogging that is.
I truly believe that there is one cornerstone principle that will make or break your aspiration of becoming a professional blogger.
Some of you are making the effort to do it, but don’t really know how to.
Some of you haven’t even started because it just sounds scary.
VERY few of you know what you are doing.
And ALL of us need a lesson or two in how to REALLY do it the right way.
Side note: this was my practice run at “building anticipation”. How did I do?
Of course, there are tons of ways to make money online, almost as many as there are posts written on the subject.
Here are just a couple of them:

And here’s a teaser to show you what’s possible:
But the only TRUE way to TRULY make money online is to build a responsive list of subscribers who:
- trust you,
- want to hear from you, and
- are prepared to follow your recommendation to buy,
How You & I Can Help Each Other
I am planning on doing one GIANT market research to see how you and I can build better lists.
You see, by ourselves we are just a spec. Yes, I might have a bit more traffic than you do and you might have a bit more influence than I do, but the strength of this kind of market research is in NUMBERS.
So let’s combine our efforts!
Let’s join out forces: email our lists, tweet, share, digg – let’s do whatever it takes to get as many people as possible to take the following survey and use the results to better ALL of our business.
For List Builders
This survey is designed for those of us who are thinking about or doing some list building.
Why should you take it?
- Because I am asking you to do it and you own me that much.
- Because it’ll take you about 10 seconds to do it.
- Because I will use the results to tailor my future posts to what you need to know about list building the most.
- Because the results will help me determine if I need to scout for list building experts and have them right some guest posts to help us all build better lists quicker.
- Because if you took your time to read this post, you can certainly take your time to do this.
- Because you’ll get the satisfaction of accomplishing at least one this today, granted it wasn’t on your to-do list?
I think I just ran out of reason…
Bottom line: Just click the button, would ya?
For List Buildees
Yes, for those (unfortunate?) souls who get on our list – excluding my list, of course, since I do provide some killer tips to my subscribers and almost never promote anything, right?
I promise I’ll take care of you in a future post. I will want to know anything and everything that will helps us, online marketers, serve your needs better.
This is kind of funny if you think about it, since we are really talking about the same group of people, aren’t we?
We, online marketers, are the ones who build lists and we, online marketers, are the ones who get on the lists of other marketers. Yet our expectations are entirely different depending on which side we represent at the moment…
Anyway, your survey is coming!
