  • Hi Jerry and thanks for sharing your expertise about such an important topic for every online marketer.

    You make an interesting point about having a laser targeted focus on our target audience but for many new (and not so new) internet marketers, apart from trying to bdefine exactly who their target market is, they are then faced with the dilemna of finding where they hang out. Without this knowledge thier list building efforts will be completely wasted.

    No benefit in creating an email list that does not relate to what you have bto offer. In fact I see way too many internet marketers building thier list with paid traffic methods like solo ads but then discovering that they have an almost “dead list” as far as responsiveness is concerned.

    One thing I have found that asking for the email address only gets a bigger optin rate but not necessarily a better quality subscriber.

    By asking for their first name at least enables some initial relationship building to occur especially in what you refer to as the “welcome series”

    Re thank you pages I have found that by adding a welcome video on that page that reinforces what they just opted in for plus telling them what you have planned and why they should be opening your emails, has greatly improved my email open and CTR’s

    Many thanks again for sharing this Jerry as list building is, and always will be, the backbone of any online business.

    Best wishes as always from a remote Thai village entrepreneur

      Peter one thing you can test for the paid traffic route is to do a double confirmation. It yields a lower conversion rate but a much more responsive list.

      These people actually want to be there on your list.

      As to the dead list that some have that is not a good situation to have from a delivery standpoint. In other words your delivery rates will go down.

      If you find yourself in this situation it would do you good to purge your list of subscribers who are older than six months or less who haven’t opened your emails.

      They are doing them no favor and neither are they doing you any. As a matter of fact it’s costing you more money by them sitting there.

    Excellent post Jerry and a very useful resource for anyone starting out building their list “the right way”… good to see the empathy map in there too. I find the empathy map always makes the avatar far more flesh and bone. Good stuff.

  • This is a comprehensive post, Jerry.

    Regarding laser targeting, I’m a newbie on the block. And speaking for myself, it’s instinctual/survival to go the shotgun approach. Particularly when needing money is a big issue. Being on a shoestring has a huge bearing on what’s affordable to implement.

    But, starting somewhere, is a start. And this post is a good resource.

    Particularly with the bombardment of information, solid information calms the nerves.

    Thanks, Michael.
