Top 3 ways of really making money online

(1) Identify

Identify exactly who you want to bore. This is your most critical step in list building for traffic. If you don't do this task well you are doomed to failure online.

Consider carefully in choosing who fits. Otherwise your identified group won't go away.

Identify exact characteristics of who fits.

(2) Detail

Find the details required for boring your chosen group. You want to bore the daylights out of each of these people.

For your first list building for traffic attempts your goal is simple. Get people in that group to go away by clicking the back button. Compel each to return to whatever they were doing when they found you.

Document the level of detail required.

(3) Best

You must describe what you do best. This focus is critical.

Otherwise you won't achieve boredom and your identified people will not click the back button.

For your list to be at all useful, you've got to focus on what you do best. You must be bold in describing results so your identified people hit that back button.

Study your business so you know what you do best.

Why today's focus on the top 3 boredom tips for building your email list?

Many online business owners aren't list building for traffic yet. Some are waiting because they're simply not ready.

Some are scared of what happens online when people not on your identified list get in! Others just don't know about identifying who to bore, what level of detail achieves boredom or the must-have focus on your best stuff (otherwise being boring breaks).

You can really make money online by hitting all the top 3 boredom tips for building your email list. First identify who you want to go away, find detail levels needed to get that back click and be boldly focused on what you do best and you'll ensure back buttons get clicked.

I have a question for you Cynthia. How do you get your readers to communicate with you? Many of them have told me they enjoy my newsletters, but I'm trying to engage them in making suggestions and asking questions. I know people don't always respond to a newsletter. It's not a blog where you make comments, but I always want to respond. Trying to involve folks. What would you do? I think they're shy. Maybe lazy. Or maybe I'm failing to do something.

Hi Joan! Good questions indeed. First I want to encourage you to remember that it's a numbers game. So until you get a fairly large list you just don't have the numbers to conclude shy/lazy/failing! People are so very busy that unless you're doing something to get them one step closer to some type of problem in their life? Well - just asking general questions won't work. I like what Lemuel just mentioned that he did! (below) - he's going to know more about his visitors up front. Plus he sets expectations now of interactions!

What do you consider a good sized list? I also think it's important to have a very targeted audience. Mine could be better targeted. Have to work on it.

In my opinion Joan you just go at it day by day. Just don't expect that every one of your subscribers is going to have a need every day until you've got a lot of them. If you have a big enough group it's someone's birthday every day, right? You build until it's heading toward someone on your list needing significant help every however-often. Then you've got a solid foundation. (Don't stop then - just don't expect your business is really set up til then) Yes targeted lists give better results. Then again, remember that your target audience has stuff in common with the people who influence them. That includes vendors they buy from who might prove to be good joint venture partners for you. So go all at it full blast with boring people not having that common interest!

Boom! Great stuff Cynthia! I'd also add to the list, Just be yourself. Everyone is so unique, we don't need any more copycats out there. If we all focus on just being who we are instead of trying to be another ____________, the world would be an even better place. Keep it up!
