Nuts and Bolts of Listbuilding

If you have read other articles about Contact List Builder here or elsewhere you may know that it comprises a set of programs that together make up a toolset for internet marketers.

Given that your primary objective is to bring new people to your business AND that doing that means finding leads, what are these basic tools and how are they used?

Do cultural differences affect the way you do business?

I’m a Brit OK?  We British have a reputation for being reserved in our dealings with other people.  Maybe that’s wrong and maybe it’s right but I feel that in my business and in my personal life, there are lines not to cross and places I should not go when talking to other people.

Recently that led to coming smack up against a business colleague who evidently thinks that I am being negative and something of a wimp and because of that I’m losing out on potential business. I have to disagree and this blog post is about the two sides of that argument.

Leads System Network has launched

I have thrown my hat in the ring and decided to join the newly launched Leads System Network, based on the referrals I collected in pre-launch. Much as I love Contact List Builder, I acknowledge that some people find the system difficult where it involves joining several different programs including an autoresponder, lead capture page creator and so on.

What you want may not be what you need

Millions of people every year are suckered into network marketing by totally unrealistic promises of high incomes for very little effort.

They join what looks like a promising opportunity and are faced with a big monthly bill which they have to try to equalize by recruiting, and maybe a hefty chunk of money upfront as well. The fallout is very high when they start to hit problems finding new people to come into their business. Continue reading

Edna Bucket’s promotional YouTube video

Every day almost, while I am surfing traffic exchanges, I come across sites with videos that are a total and absolute turn-off.

If you are going to make a video to promote a product or service and you honestly want people to take you seriously and buy from you, then you had better wise up and SMARTEN UP.  Continue reading

Did your autoresponder let you down?

A lot of people have had recent issues with autoresponders, in particular with the industry leader Aweber. I was clicking on safelist mail links and getting errors and 404s all over the place.  Not good for me or the advertiser.

What I heard was that they had a DDOS attack. So why should that worry you?    Continue reading

When the penny dropped

It’s very galling to look back and think how much time I have wasted trying to promote products and services without building a list. I’ve even overlooked previous offers to join Contact List Builder!   However, I have finally seen the light and realized the enormous value of what I am doing here.  Continue reading

Why I do what I do how I do it!

Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
– John Wooden, US Basketball coach

Starting out, here is some info about the product and company I advertise and why you might not think that it was my primary business.

BodyByVi is a weightloss product range marketed by a company called Visalus and I decided to start promoting it after using it successfully for a few months.

Many marketers get so enthused about their main product that they concentrate their advertising on it exclusively and don’t even give a prospective customer an opportunity to express more interest via a form included in the ad. I confess to being absolutely guilty of making this mistake in the past, and have now radically changed the type of primary advertising that I do.

The type of ad I now use is called a squeeze page or lead capture page and you absolutely HAVE to get familiar with this format and know how to create one and  store the information, because it is fundamental to listbuilding.

However, although BodyByVi give me a capture page, I’m actually not using it – this is why. There are so many BodyByVi pages out there, that someone searching on Google is very unlikely to hit mine first. Also, I cannot customize it to feed directly into my GVO autoresponder or set up personalized follow up messages. 

I’ve found that I can attract many MORE visitors to my product by offering to help my visitors build THEIR business.  The marketing system I invite them to use is Contact List Builder and that is what I advertise.

The reason CLB is so very good is that the steps that you need to take to make it work are very clearly documented and support is very easy to get.  You can set the basic system up in a couple of hours – yes even if you are a non techie! Interested visitors to my CLB ads enter their name and email on a simple form embedded in the ad and hey presto –

Now I can send them information about my BodyByVi product as well as Contact List Builder. As just about everyone knows someone in their family or friends who is trying to lose weight, I get potentially more than one visitor to my product site because with a little nudge from me, my initial contact will pass on the info.
