Hi, my list size has finally grown to over 10,000.

I took about 15 months to build it
and on average, my list grows at about
600 plus subscribers per month

Wow! That calls for a celebration!

If you want to be successful in any form of business,
you got to have your own customer base.

Look at these highly successful business.
1. The Body Shop has their customer base who they can keep in touch with.

2. Borders Book Shop is gathering the emails of their supporters

3. Amazon.com always has email broadcast to inform their buyers of latest bargains

4. Triump always sent email updates of the latest designs of women wears.

So how can you go about building a list?

Here are 5 simple steps:

1. First get an autoresponder

2. Get a webhost and a domain so that you can build your squeeze page

3. Create a free product so that people can opt in to get this freebie

    Good post Jon… nail on the head. It funny how so many people tell you to build a list and the mechanics of building a list but never the actually way to get people on your list.

    Like you say – get it up to 200 (I usually recommend 500 but will try 200 in a new niche) and get some JV partners for adswaps, list dumping and marketing each others products.

    Rather than thinking you have to get over 10,000 through articles, web 2.0, forum sigs and viral reports!

    List building is an asset for blogger/internet marketer.

    The Money is in the relationship you built with your list. Email marketing is vital to build relationship and trust with your list! Autoresponder is the great tool to build your asset!

    To your success,

    I am looking for the best autoresponder service I have been with with AWeber from the very beginning (for a couple of years now.) Thanks that you remind me I should write a post about their latest service updates. – Best regards
