How to build your list for free

Marketing

We all know very well the importance of a list in order to make money online. But understandably, many marketers have the problem of lack of budget. So how does one build a list for free? Here’s several great techniques for getting your money making list set up on a shoe string budget (or FOC).

Draw free traffic. The basis of building a free list is to draw traffic without any cost. This can be done by article submission or article directories such as Ezinearticles and putting a link in the resource box of your article which leads to your landing page.

Do an ad swap exchange. If you have a list already and have contacts with several marketers in the same niche, you can offer to do an email swap with them, promoting each other’s landing page to your respective subscribers. That way, you both can benefit from extra leads and grow your list fast.

Join giveaway events. Giveaway events are great places to build your list fast. What you do is sign up for a free account and submit your gift to the website. Then, all the contributors will actively promote the launch and you will benefit from having built a list from free from all the visitors that come to the event. Make sure you actively promote the event as well because the list can only grow from the collective effort from all marketers.

Finally, consider being an active contributor in niche forums. Forums are great places to meet your target market and show that you can provide good value to others. Once you’ve established yourself as an expert in your niche, you can provide contact details of your business to anyone who wishes to find out more about your products or even link them to your landing page to build your own list.
