The Flu and List building Go Hand In Hand!
What does the flu have to do with building your list?
Well a lot!
A flu, just like any other virus is able to spread itself to anyone it comes in contact with.
And when we are building are email lists, we want this same type of viral effect to take place. This viral effect is known as viral marketing.
Viral Marketing is allowing people to giveaway and use your free product or service in order to spread your message quickly over the internet. I also call this form of marketing wild fire marketing because as soon as it starts, it will spread your marketing all over the internet like a wild forest fire. When this happens, it will be difficult to stop it.
3. Allow people to add their link to your free web site directory. Just require that they return a link back to your web site, advertising your directory.
6. Allow people to provide your free online service to their web site, visitors, or e-zine subscribers. They could be free e-mail, e-mail consulting, search engine submissions, etc. This is how hotmail grew 12 million subscribers in 1.5 years.
9. Allow people to place an advertisement in your free ebook if, in exchange, they give away the ebook to their web visitors or e-zine subscribers.
10. Allow people to give away your free ebook to their visitors. Then, their visitors will also give it away. This will just continue to spread your ad all over the internet.
If you combine some of these viral marketing tactics with your list building efforts, you will explode your list in no time.
Maybe you could become the next hotmail?!
Well even if you don't, you will still build a monsterous sized list quickly.
