Interests

Having worked in sales and marketing for most of my life, I have never experienced the joy I do now in the merchant processing field. If you need credit card processing equipment online or offline, contact me. My company runs specials all the time.

Because I love helping people obtain their goals and become successful, my approach to any prospective business owner is whether I can save them money and increase their profits. If I can do that, then I\'ve done my job.

One of my passions is blogging about social media marketing for businesses, particularly small businesses. I provide advice and best practices to help businesses understand the quagmire that exists on Facebook, YouTube and other social network marketing opportunities.


In my spare time I take stunning photos, and have been published by: CNN News, KMOV-TV (St. Louis, MO.),Discovery Channel The Storm Chasers, St Louis Bureau of Tourism Online Travel Brochure (2009).

Grow Your List, Create Revenue

Mar 20th 2012 at 8:14 PM

 

The economy is crappy, people have lost jobs, homes and the income they were accustomed to.  If you’re a savvy internet marketer with a hot MLM product, you can clearly see potential for adding new sign-ups.  But, sometimes you find yourself struggling to sign-up as many new prospects that are out there.  Let’s face it, your MLM product isn’t the only game in town, and for the first time in recent memory, your prospects are looking at lots of choices to make money from home.  How do you compete with everyone else?

 

Well, nothing is new as far as competing to get quality leads and building your list. But, you can have an advantage over your competitors – your very own secret weapon to building your list.

 

List building is really like planting the seeds of success.  Yet, the nature of email lists is that new prospects sign up, long term devotees mysteriously drop off and stalemates stagger in and out of range.  They are the forces of nature that make up email list building.  As they say, "the money is in the list," so you already know that having a list means having an income that is sustainable.  If your list starts to lose members, then you may be one of the folks who lose your home, right along with the target market you're trying to hit.  So, there is a constant level of internal stress, to remain stable with your income, and to come up with new ways to keep your list intact.

 

It's all about size...

 

A robust email list is not a luxury, it is a MUST!  As a multi-faceted marketer, you have to utilize efforts to grow, expand and cultivate your list.  You can not afford to take a two week vacation while your list members (or worse yet, your MLM sign-ups) look for leadership that is in Hawaii being served tropical drinks by half-naked men (half-naked women if you're a man, LOL!)  The secret to list building success is to constantly attract new relationships with new customers and qualified prospects--because eventually list loss happens. You've got to create your own field of dreams, or shall I say field of e-dreams---if you build it and keep it strong, you'll gain more opportunities for customers to come to you.

 

 

But losing subscribers is like an Achilles Heal to all your internet efforts.  We know when we use traffic exchanges, we can grow our list; when we promote on Twitter and Facebook, we can grow our list.  However, the fact remains that subscribers can be fickle, and jump from list to list, forgeting about you and your newsletter, and will move onto the next best thing.  Where is the loyalty you ask?!!

 

Loyalty is earned, and if you do the little things well all the time, it will pay off in big future payoffs, just in time for the next holiday season.

 

Next email list building article will focus on how to grow your list using 6 secret strategies most marketers don't use.
