Online List Building - 3 List Building Sources
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Online list building is arguably the tactic with the highest success rate amongst internet marketers. There are multiple ways to build lists on the web - including product giveaways and viral media. These days the marketing channel of the day appears to be social networks. Whatever the platform however the goal remains the same: generate a following and market products and services to them.

The Old Stand-by Tactic: The Product Giveaway The oldest trick in the book when it comes to generating a following on the web is to offer a simple book or product in exchange for contact information - i.e. an email address. Despite the fact that this tactic has been around forever and has resulted in an entire generation of web users skeptical of the contents of their inboxes the bottom line is that product giveaways still work. Even when the quality of the book or PDF is fairly poor the lead generated by the offering many times ultimately converts to a sale somewhere down the line.

Online List Building on Facebook and Social Networks Currently Facebook is the choice of the day when it comes to exploiting the trust of users. People are far too willing to share their interests and personal information with groups of friends - unknowingly revealing their wants and needs to observant internet marketers. Numerous privacy complaints have done little to stem the tide of product placement and promotion on social networking platforms. We'll see if this changes in the future but I wouldn't count on it.

Other Potential Sources of Traffic for Online List Building Another popular means of online list building has been the ever over-done viral videos. The unbelieveable success of incredibly stupid stunts captured on camera has made getting that kind of content up extremely important. Once the internet marketer has developed a following on their video channel advertisers inevitably notice and start showing ads on those heavily played scenes. Streaming media players allow the content to be distributed anywhere a piece of javascript code can work. Each time a video gets a hit, an ad shows up or it is certain to be followed by a link out to other things to watch.
