Proven Techniques For Building A Solid Subscriber List

by Cody Moya

Building and maintaining a solid list of subscribers is the cornerstone of any effective affiliate program. More subscribers mean more click through and sales for your merchant partners, and of course more commissions for you. There are many strategies for building a solid list of subscribers who are anxious to read your messages. A few of the most effective are listed below.

1) Make it easy for potential subscribers to sign up. I can't tell you how many times I've clicked on a link to a free report, free sample or other product, only to be bombarded by a huge page of banner ads, graphics and other junk. If I have to search for the sign-up box, I click away faster than you can say "bye bye". You can be sure your potential subscribers feel the same way, so make it easy for them. The only thing on your squeeze page should be the offer itself and a box for the visitor's e-mail address. Anything else is merely a distraction.

2) Design a separate website for your e-zine. Creating a separate page for your e-zine allows visitors to easily view a sample when deciding whether to become subscribers. The e-zine page should contain comments from subscribers, some sample content, etc. Having a separate e-zine page also allows you to submit the page to search engines based on targeted keywords and keyword phrases.

3) Provide a free sample. Providing some sort of bonus, like a free report, free newsletter or free sample article, is a proven way to turn visitors into subscribers. After all, everyone likes free stuff. Of course, you need to make sure you provide your promised freebie quickly, and that the content is useful and interesting.

4) Include a custom written signature. Every piece of mail and every e-zine article you send should include a signature file containing your website address and a few lines about your business. Building a relationship with your subscriber list takes time, and a signature file is a great way to build that relationship.

5) Provide articles for your subscribers. Providing fresh, interesting content is a sure way to keep subscribers happy and looking for more. If you are not a writer, do not despair. There are some great sites where affiliate marketers can buy private label articles. One of our favorite sites Your Own Articles. This site allows you to purchase exclusive rights to the articles, meaning that you have the right to put your name on them as the author. This allows you to add an author resource box, which will link back to your squeeze page and allow you to continue building your subscriber base.

6) Check out the e-zine directories. There are many free and paid directories out there were authors can list their e-zines and build their list of subscribers. It may be worthwhile to check out these e-zine directories.

7) Become a barterer. Trading and exchanging ads and newsletter content is a great way to build your base. Here's how it works: you submit an article at no-cost to a newsletter publisher who needs content. In exchange, you are permitted to include a small ad in the content of the article. The ad will point readers back to your squeeze page and allow you to build your base of subscribers.
