Every internet marketing guru will tell you that the most important thing that you can do as a person doing business online is build your email list. Why? If you have an email list then you can promote and sell to your list over and over again.
Nevertheless, one of the most common mistakes made by people new to building a business online, including myself, is that they do not do anything to build their list. It took me a long time to realize that I should be focused on building my list. However, building your email list is easier said than done.
The Process Of Building An Email List
When you are in the process of building your email list there are some key things that you must do which includes:
Getting an email autoresponder service like Aweber or Get Response.
Building a squeeze page or opt-in page.
Create a thank you page for people who subscribe.
Find a free product, service, or software to entice people to subscribe to your list.
Create quality content for your email subscribers which will be added to your autoresponder.
Find ways to get traffic to your squeeze or opt-in page.
What If You Could Leverage Your New Subscribers To Get More Subscribers?
Let's say that you have done all of the things listed above. You have your autoresponder set up with quality content. You have a cool free product or service that you are offering to anyone that subscribes to your list. Your squeeze page looks beautiful. On top of all of that, you have a steady stream of traffic coming to your squeeze page.
What if you could add simple step into your list building process that could help you capture more email subscribers with little extra effort? That would be pretty cool right?
As a person who does business online I follow a lot us blogs that give tips on how to build my business. One of those blogs that I follow is called ViperChill.com which is operated by a guy named Glen Allsop.
Glen created this free web based software called Cloudflood which can help you get more subscribers from the efforts of people who have subscribed to your list.
How Cloudflood Can Increase Your Email Subscribers
Here is how CloudFlood works:
Someone signs up to receive your free offer from your opt-in page.
Instead of sending these guys to a regular thank you page. You send them to a page where you ask them to tweet the url of your squeeze page for another free product. Of course they will have the option to do this or not.
If they decide to tweet the url of your squeeze page to their twitter followers, now you have more traffic and more potential subscribers visiting your squeeze page.
Cloudfood can turn your list building efforts into over drive with little effort on your part. This solution is very easy to use and there is no sign up required to use it.
Once you go to Cloudflood you will need:
To have a direct download link to the free item that you are offering.
A message that you want your subscribers to tweet.
A destination URL or the link to your squeeze page that you want the traffic to go to.
Once you have done that, then you will receive a button with html code that you can put on your special thank you page.
