Email List Building – How Responsive is Your Email List

Email List Building – How Responsive is Your Email List

Is your email list responsive enough? If not, then consider that this is an issue that is directly related to your relation with it. What do your emails contain? If they’re flooded of multipurpose information, that entices your readers, fine, but if they’re unattractive, you’ve got no chance.

Remember that your subscribers have enrolled in your list as they require high caliber content, and you told them you could cater it - otherwise why would they be with you? Also, you are being judged on your quality. You can see that if you start to give poor content, and rehashed products or information that is confused with poor grammar, it will be a their assumption that your products are of the same quality.

Your goal is to furnish your email list building with the kind of information that is easy to understand, new, and that readers can put to work immediately – and that’s before they’ve even seen your offers! When they can act – with success - on what you tell them in your emails, then they’ll start to warm to you and be more disposed to come to you when you begin offering them low-end ticket products.

Is email list building easier said than done?

No, but you must take an nimble approach

As you’re an expert in your niche, there’s no reason why you can’t write quality content in most of your emails.

  • Write in an simple style. Your composition should be in the context that would allow them to feature it in a easygoing manner over a cup of coffee with you. Your grammar should be free flowing and at every costs, jargon-free and non-technical.

  • Discreetly place a link to your website in say 20% of your emails. Don’t plaster your creation in their faces every day. That is not the way to build a list, your email should be a pleasure for them to read. Think most what comes into YOUR inbox? Do you enjoy reading them, or feel like unsubscibing?

  • Yes, your telecommunicate rate depends on the nature of the niche – and the subscriber’s frame of mind too. At he beginning of creating your relationship, when everything is fresh, mail up to 5 emails maybe. Then as you start to know one another, assist up a little, as they’ll come to recognize you. If you send emails that provide heaps of sound content though, then don’t be shy in sending more to them. Sending a new income stream letter every day leaves you without some subscribers at all, so just be sensible, and everything should be fine.

  • Put your self in the mind of the recipient, and communicate if you’d be happy to act on your email. How would it attain your attention - excited, or trashing it?

  • Above all, impact your readers as you would like to be treated yourself – with respect. Because that way, building your list works for everyone involved.
Once you become their "authority" to go to, your potential to sell to them becomes greatly increased. You would not try to sell turtle food to somebody who doesn't own a turtle, just like your customers would not buy turtle food from somebody who does not own a turtle themselves.

When to use Tag Clouds

If your a blogger starting out, or maybe have several blogs, or your just deciding which widgets to use in your new Wordpress blog, a few tips can help you out.  Knowing how the search engines work can greatly improve your success. If a search engine comes across duplicate content while searching your links on your site, this will give each link less "link juice" as the experts call it. Why? because it is indexing the same content twice.

So, if you are using a tag cloud, and each tag only refers to 1 article, then the content will be counted multiple times. Removing the Tag Cloud could greatly improve your SE scores, as each post content will only be indexed possibly three times (once on the main page till it falls off, once on a category page, and once for the post's page).  This is a good reason to make sure you post often, so that articles never stay on the front page for too long. Include an "Archives" link so that the SE can find the older posts.

If your blogging about a single topic, rather than a couple, it may even be a good idea to remove the Category menus. This will again reduce the number of times the content is "seen". If you do use categories, be sure the category is in the Title of the page first, and in the description meta tag. The description tag should be unique to this category.

Once you have hundreds of posts on the same topics and tags, you may be able to re-introduce the tag-cloud if the number of tags is small. Overall it helps if each blog is concentrating on a small topic as this will reduce the categories, and tags. Never place a post in more than one category.

How I Ranked 1st Page in Google in less than 11 hours (or less)

So, I was screwing around on the internet today, and I came across an amazing video. The guy in the video said his method can get you ranked within 1min! This was truely something to see. So, I tried it out myself.... I wasn't ranked in the top ten in 1min but how a few short hours??? I'm between bizrate and walmart ?? If this is possible then how? Above and below are the screenshots showing page 1  my Keywords, and clicking through the page showing my affiliate link for Amazon. If you think it's cause it's a long tail keyword, the last pic shows page 3. Here is a Link to the search ... Let me know how I'm doing :)

Shorter Keywords - "Hello Kitty Scooter" - Page 3 after only 11 hours?

I was testing if this would actually work really quick so most of the content is ripped (and credited as best I could) to the Amazon site. Shortly after I got home, I recieved an email from xomba saying my account was blocked :) ... but oddly ... my pages are still there and my links too! Fun times :)
