I have gone around and around…upside down over and under.
And it all comes down to TWO THINGS…
1…Creating a High Converting Sales Funnel
2…Creating strong relationships between you and your readers
As far as the Sales Funnel goes, you have to have two great products-
one to sell and one to give away. Then you must create the squeeze page,
the thank you and download page and the sales page. You can outsource
all of it or part of it or buy a page maker…
I could go on about this subject ’til the cows come home, but the main thing
is this: Without a Sales Funnel, no List Building method will work.
That said, start there, then go for the Solo Mailings and Ad Swapping etc..
Okay, for the Relationship bit…once you have the readers, how do you
keep them from giving you the ‘Cold Shoulder’ ? Now, I don’t want
you to be…put off about a little Zen Philosophy…but do check out the
“be what it is that you are seeking”
a quote by Dr.Wayne W. Dyer
I just read that this morning and suddenly realized that…creating
the kind of relationships I want, is my responsibility.
Now I’m not talking just about the ones in my immediate world
or in my town. I’m thinking of across the board…people on my list.
Those folks are as real as my relatives.
Okay now, Think about this one:
“help them do what they’re already doing”
a quote by Derrick Van Dyke
If I want subscribers to be responsive to me and interested in what
I have to say, then applying the quotes above will work like this…
I need to be responsive to them and interested in what they
have to say….”help them do what they already doing” and
that will help me in the same way!
Here are a few ideas for blog posts and email messages:
Ask your subscribers’ for links to their blogs.
- Create videos and/or write stories and interview about successful people
- Put together some tips for success
- Ask your subscribers to do a survey.
- Give gifts that are useful to what they are doing.
- Write about your life and even your family…eg.,your dog
Oh, and what about being responsive and interested in subscribers yet to come?
Do some ad swaps and solo ads using useful offers
and get to know other marketers, for starters.
So, it comes out to be this…
1…Get your Sales Funnel together…I’m partial to WP Optins elite ~ I use it for all my pages
2…show you care about others and others will care about you. We’ve all heard that before…LOL Gee, maybe there is something to it after all that’s said and done!
Now…What is it that you do, to build and keep your list warm? Please share;-)
Please leave a comment.
Okay, there may be a ton of strategies to build lists with…but to make this an easy read, I’ve chosen my three favorites. Each one has been most beneficial to me for creating a strong list of subscribers. Go ahead and download it now and benefit from my work…:0)
My Very first Post on this site…
( Check out what I added )
“Money Can’t Buy Me Love” No, No, No.
But it Fits just Like a Glove…
I Spent Most of my Life, Thinking that Money Should Not Exist…that it only caused problems.
Well, I Finally came to Realize that Money is a Means to a
Clarity of Mind and an Opportunity for Self Obedience.
I have the Space to Focus on Health, Food, Shelter,
my Pets and Gardens. Did I Mention, my Family
and Me? It makes it Possible to Put my Life
in Order; Things like Priority. All this is
Clarity of Mind and Self Obedience;
Taking control of what I Need to;
What is Better Than All That?
I like Money and Why Not.
I Just Gotta Have It:)
Yes, Yes, Yes…..
We All Do,
TWO Years Later…February 16,2013 And Now…I want to add something!
Above, I wrote…
‘Money is a Means to a Clarity of Mind and an Opportunity for Self Obedience.’
But, what about getting the money for that Clarity and Obedience?
Too often, we say stuff like, “When I have money, I’ll be happy”
But really, we must be happy, then the money or whatever it is that we need/want, comes. Not the other way round!
It’s matching up with what we want and need!
I’ll keep adding to this one…LOL

It’s a great song to Depend On:) I’m not sure if I got the title right, but it’s close.
It’s called ” Stand By Me” LOL
