3 Proven Ways To Build Your Opt-In List

If you've been involved in online marketing for any amount of time, you've probably heard the phrase "The money is in the list!" Why? Because those who are successful online use their mailing list to generate massive profits. It's no secret! A large list equals instant cash. But how do you build your own responsive list?

Here are three proven methods anyone can use to build their own "guru sized" mailing list.

1. Co-registration Lists

Co-registration is the secret tool many gurus use to build their lists to jaw dropping numbers. It's now possible to have a targeted list of 100,000 subscribers in as little as one month.

Co-registration companies are able to generate these large numbers by placing small advertisements for your list on various websites across the internet.

Sounds great, right?

There are a couple of drawbacks to using this method. You'll usually pay a hefty fee, and the subscribers will not be as responsive as the one you collect from your own website.

But if you're looking for a quick and easy way to build the giant opt-in list you've always wanted, co-registration is the route for you.

2. Write Articles

Writing and submitting articles not only creates hundreds of links to your website, but also gives you the opportunity to generate thousands of new subscribers.

At the bottom of each article, you should provide a five line advertisement for your mailing list known as the resource box. Inside your resource box, you should offer a free report or e-book in exchange for the reader's e-mail address. You'll usually see better results if you provide your auto-responder address inside your resource box rather than a link to your website.

When you article is published by an e-zine, you'll have thousands of responsive readers viewing your article and resource box. If you're free offer is a product that many people will be interested in receiving, you'll notice a large spike in new subscribers each time your article is published.

One of the fastest ways to get your articles noticed is through an automated service.

3. Pay Per Click Landing Pages

Google AdWords allows anyone to generate almost instant traffic to their website 24 hours a day. By tapping into this powerful avenue, you can pick up new subscribers for a little as .05 a click.

The secret to success with PPC advertising is to create a landing page. Landing pages are one page websites that offer a freebie(s) in exchange for the visitors e-mail address. When a visitor clicks on a PPC ad, they are directed to a landing page. They can either leave or provide their contact information. It all depends on your
offer. If you can create enough interest in your offer through your copy, your landing page will become an e-mail vacuum.

You've just read three powerful list building techniques. By using one or all of them, you can expect to see substantial gains in the number of people subscribed to your mailing list. And before too long, you'll also be "bragging" about your guru sized opt-in list.
