List building is pretty much the name of the game in Internet marketing, no list equals little to no money.
The bigger your list, the bigger your potential earnings. Experts say you should earn about one dollar for each person on your list, every month.
Want ten thousand dollars a month? Get 10,000 subscribers. Okay great, how?
Well, what’s your lead magnet? The gift you offer in exchange for that all important name and email address.
A free report or e-book packed with valuable and useful information and training, maybe a bit of software you have rights to?
All three work great, but did you create them? Or did someone give them to you as a gift to join their list, with giveaway rights?
Now, there’s nothing wrong with using someone else’s e-book to build your list, as long as you have permission to use it.
How many other people are using that same e-book to build their lists? 10, 100, 1,000, or even more?
The better the e-book the more people will want it, sounds good, right? Give it away, no effort to write it, just load it in your opt in box and count your prospects as they pour in.
What if your potential prospects already have that e-book, and are using it to build their lists? First off, they won’t join your list, why would they? Second, and possibly worse, they will see you as a competitor, not a teacher, trainer, or mentor. Nothing for them to learn from you.
What do you do if you are just starting out? If you don’t have an e-book of your own? Start with the e-book you were given as you work on writing your own.
Study the e-books you have on hand and write your free report based on them, in your own words and personality. Make it unique to you.
Sure, it will take some work, anything worthwhile does. If you want it fast, free, and easy you’re on the wrong planet. Not sorry, that’s the way life is.
Now that you have your report written, how are you going to send it out? As an email? Which is good, or as a PDF, which is better.
An e-book that you wrote gives you instant expert authority status to anyone who doesn’t know as much as you. And believe it, there are a lot of people who don’t know what you know.
Now the only thing standing between you and your first e-book is some time and effort.
The time will pass regardless of what you do.
Do you have the will to put in the effort? It’s your future at stake.
