In this article we are going to discuss the importance of building an opt in list. Almost any program you are using to make money on the internet will require some follow-up on your part. Having a list of your own is the best way to do that. If you have ever spent your time calling and emailing leads you bought from a list broker then you know how difficult that can be. Now compare that to having a list of people who know you and look forward to hearing from you. This is what an opt in list is.
People who have agreed to receive email from you. When they fill out on online form and hit the submit button they are opting in. When they click on the link in the first email they receive they are now a double opt in lead. The value to you, and your program, is you now have a quality prospect who wants to see what you have to offer. Internet marketing and making money on the internet is a numbers game.
Generally the person with the largest list will make the most money. Even better than that is a quality list of people who want to hear from you. You build on this by keeping in touch and providing valuable and interesting information.
Over time you become a trusted person who is there to help. The Wealth Magnet System is perfect for this type of marketing because you make money helping people learn how to market their business. You need a list to be able to do this. You are able to teach your list and in turn make more sales personally from it. So how do you build a list. Getting traffic to a landing page where you trade something of value for their contact information is a great way to build an opt in list.
To do this you need 3 things. 1. An autoresponder to capture names and email addresses for future follow up. 2. A domain name 3. Hosting for your splash page where you place your sign up form.
3. A giveaway such as a free report or ebook that creates an incentive for them to fill out the short info form. From here you promote the splash page all over the internet capturing names and following up using your program as a way for them to make money. As your list grows you will be able to increase sales for years to come as people stay on your list.
