EACH AND EVERY MONTH by Melanie Rockett

We all keep hearing how important it is to grow our "lists."
Whether your list is an ezine,Guest Posting an online newsletter or a
customer contact list it can create an income or generate
additional traffic to your website.

The problem is that many web entrepreneurs don't have the
slightest idea how to kick start their lists, let alone keep
them growing steadily month after month.

It is possible to develop and grow a list even if you have
NO website. Having a website will definitely help, but don't
wait, get your list started right now and add your website

Why do you NEED a list? As freelancers and web
entrepreneurs, we need a way to keep in contact with our
existing and past customers ... and we need a way to keep
putting our information and name out in front of potential
customers. We have to keep reminding customers that we exist
and we have fabulous services to offer.

A graphic artist friend maintains a small local list. He
sends out an occasional newsletter that talks about the work
he has recently completed ... he includes samples of the
illustrations and graphics he has created for his clients.
The clients he features love it because they get some
exposure and free advertising! This newsletter serves to
keep existing and old customer informed about the types of
projects my friend does and it is a very non-pushy way of
keeping his name in front of potential clients.

What my friend HASN'T done is expand his list and offer it
to anyone who wishes to opt-in. He could potentially be
building an international business with a very small
additional effort.

How DO you build your list? There are literally DOZENS of
ways! In this article I will show you how you can get
started and literally add 1000+ new subscribers to your list
a month.

First of all you must get your ezine or newsletter onto as
many of the list announcement services and list directories
as you can ...

List Announcement Services

There are dozens of newsletter and ezine announcement lists
and ezine directories. The trick is finding them, making
your announcement and getting on the permanent lists.

Start by developing an information file about your ezine.
You don't have to do this all at once ... just start with
the basics and add to it as you go. (I use ClipMate to make the copy/paste
job faster and easier).

Here's a list of the types of information you will be asked
to provide:

>> The name of your ezine
>> A longer title (up to 100 characters) incorporating your
most important keywords. Three versions of your ezine
>> A full description of up 250 characters, another of up to
150 characters, and one of just 100 characters. Use your
most important keywords, adding more as space permits.
>> A list of 10 to 15 keywords relevant to your publication.
These are words and short phrases you want searchers to find
your ezine under. Start with your most important keyword,
and work your way down, with the least relevant word or
phrase last. Separate each of the key terms with commas.
>> The main URL of your Web site.
>> The URL to your Ezine information/sign-up page.
>> The URL to a sample issue (if you have one).
>> The URL to ezine archives (if you have any).
>> The e-mail address used to subscribe to your list.
>> The e-mail address used to unsubscribe from your list.
>> The approximate number of subscribers.
>> Your full name Company/Organization name.
>> A contact e-mail address that may be published online.
>> A private contact e-mail address (not to be published).

Different directories will request different bits of
information. Collect the information in your file as you go
... so you don't have to recreate it each time.

You may have guessed that this is a labor intensive project
... so the next step is to establish a daily or weekly
schedule ... and then stick to it. If you did just two
announcements a day you'll definitely kickstart, or give
your subscriber base a BIG boost by the end of the month.

Go to for a
list of directories and announcement services.

Once you have finished with the list of directory and
announcement services I have provided, keep on going. Keep
looking for new services and new directories. If you
persistently take a few minutes each day to promote your
list, it will grow exponentially over time!!

If you are willing to spend a few dollars to save LOADS of
time ... keep reading.

Automate Your Ezine or List Promotion Efforts

Keeping track of the lists you've announced to, adding new
lists and developing linking and article placement campaigns
takes time and can be an organizational nightmare!

If you are proficient in Access you can develop and program
your own tracking list .... OR you can check out the
following program that has been developed specifically to
help you with your list promotion efforts.

Ezine Announce give you instant access to over 1600
resources where you can promote and market your ezine - you
could easily spend 12 months wandering around the Internet
trying to find this information yourself.

This software includes ALL the list announcement services
and directories and hundreds of ezines that are interested
in getting information about your articles.

If you are SERIOUS about promoting and growing your list ...
you'd be crazy to try it without this.

Check out the dozens of testimonials from some of the
biggest list builders on the Internet ...

... then take it for a SPIN!!

And finally, you can build your list by tapping into a
list building inferno ...

Create a LIST Building Inferno!

If you have a website, one of the fastest, easiest and NO
COST ways to build a list is to join a list building co-op.
This program enables you to add thousands of 100% opt-in
subscribers to your list with very little effort.

List Inferno is a new tool that could well be the easiest,
cheapest and fastest way to build your list yet developed.
You get good quality targeted 100% opt-in leads in exchange
for your participation in the co-op. All you have to do is
put a simple line of code on your webpages ... and you will
start building your list almost immediately. I had new
subscribers added to my list literally hours after joining
the program. Anything that can give you free subscribers for
virtually zero effort is worth a try - and this system can
give you lots of those.

Bottom Line: This is probably the most effective list
building system I have ever encountered. I have added MORE
subscribers to my list using this method than any other
fr^ee program I've tried ... and I think I've tried them all!

Building your list is an ongoing process. It will not happen
overnight. It will grow over time IF you take the steps
outlined above every day and every week!
