Succeed Online By Doing The Next Right Thing! When Do You Do List Building?

List building helps you succeed online. Unfortunately, knowing the next right thing in list building isn't as simple as knowing the next right thing in breathing.

You breathe in and you breathe out! You use the same two actions whether you're going swimming with skin diving equipment or climbing a tree.

Doing the next right thing to succeed online is as much about figuring out what to do as it is about doing. But there are clues.

Are you ready to help people by email?

Helping people by email is a path to succeed online. Building a list of people who want to learn from you makes sense.

Imagine you succeed online

Pause a moment to notice your feelings. Then consider:

Do you feel having your list in place is useful now? Or do you feel starting your list now fits better?

Imagine your content online has a following

Attracting a following can provide social proof of credibility. That's true whether followers choose to benefit from your email list or not!

Hang out online in places where you enjoy interacting with the community and have something useful to offer.

Your actions online are like seeds in your garden. You plant content; comments show how to water and light.

Otherwise your actions can wash away your seeds from too much water. Or your actions online can burn up your seeds from too much light.

Yep. If you don't learn to interact it's like your seeds dried up, washed away, burned under a hot sun or wilted away from lack of light.

Experiment!

Experimenting with where to publish your content online gives you a feeling for what you like. You also learn what you feel you get from a variety of places.

Examples include:

Street Articles and Squidoo

Street Articles and Squidoo are two social media forums where I enjoy hanging out. That’s why teaching in these forums is a good way for me to have fun while developing skills and followings.

These 2 communities are global, yet small enough to catch attention. Both include a visual element, so for me, part of what I get is feedback as a non-visual person living in a world of mostly visual people.

Figure out what you want and ask for it.

EzineArticles and Gather

EzineArticles and Gather have earned strong global reputations. Being there gets people to click thru.

Your links to your blogs and other content online gives you what counts with humans and computers. Including: credibility with people and back links with search engines.

Good articles to write about your small business include stories.

Article Directories and Guest Blog Posts

Give your content to article directories and to bloggers. You'll catch attention and get to experiment.

EzineArticles is recognized as the most reputable article directory. You'll find many others, including Street Articles, enjoy good reputations and deliver results. The same is true for blogs - and you may already know bloggers happy to accept your content as guest blog posts.

Succeed Online

When is list building doing the next right thing? When you feel ready!

Pay attention to clues. One day you'll wake up and know list building is doing the next right thing today to succeed online.

Do you still use Ezinearticles? Their approval process are too long and it seems that their articles do not appear in Google.

Thank you!. Yes, indeed, I still use Ezinearticles. In fact, this week I'm planning to write some to put there. One benefit of EzineArticles you may not be aware of is the "feeds" that go out to many website owners worldwide. That's more important than getting in Google...

Excellent article, Cynthia. And I liked Joan's reply, too. Sometimes this all seems sooooo overwhelming. Exhilerating, but still overwhelming. I need to focus more on content building and maybe a little less on list building. Thanks for all the helpful tips. I will look into Gather and eZineArticles. I didn't know about them until you just shared with us. I will keep checking in with you. And...by the way.....how are you feeling? Are you healing well?

Reply

Thanks! Yes, healing well thanks to healing prayer. Now cleansing my body by reducing processed foods in preparation for a cleansing fast. One great thing about Gather is that you can write a Gather post that includes links to your Street Articles! For example: June 8th on Gather I published a post that links to 10 Street Articles. I'm listed as Cynthia Ann Leighton there too. Not many postings as yet compared to here but will eventually! Thanks for being here and thanks for your compliments. blessings, Cynthia blessings, Cynthia
