Today’s post is written by David Walker who runs a make money online blog and recently hosted a successful JV Giveaway. After adding over 3,000 subscribers to his mailing list in little over a week, David explains how to use giveaways effectively to build your own.

My Goals For Success In 2010


We’ll start off by wishing everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It’s hard to believe but yes, it’s 2010 and I wonder how many of you have made New Years resolutions. I used to make new resolutions every year but that’s when I was much younger. Now I figure I’ve reached a point in my life where I’m entitled to have a few vices so no more resolutions for me. Besides let’s face it, most of us have blown it by the end of January.

For the longest time I kept hearing about JV Giveaways and how great they were to help build your list. I had joined many as a member and downloaded plenty of great free products but I never really considered joining as a gift contributor (JV Partner).

List Building Super Tips To Super Charge Your List

Most online entrepreneurs believe that a website is all that is required to succeed. It’s true that a website gives you an identity on the Internet, makes you approachable to your potential clients, and eventually, becomes a source of income. However, there’s a multitude of sites on the Internet, and the probability of your website getting lost in this jumble is quite high. This is where list building becomes obligatory.

Studies reveal that almost 90% of the visitors to any squeeze page are merely curious onlookers. They neither have any interest in your subscription nor do they have any intention to buy your products. They are basically casual browsers, who have reached your site searching for something else. No matter what the studies say, I believe that every visitor to a squeeze page is a potential subscriber. You just need to work a little harder to convert these bystanders into your patrons.

Top 10 List Building Techniques

When it comes to list building, there is no right way or wrong way. There are only tips, suggestions, rules and strategies. However, the irony is that none of the enlisted methods guarantee good results. On the basis of my experience, I can confidently say that list building is a perfectly scientific method, where you have to understand, follow and repeat a set of techniques. These list building techniques are neither conceptual nor magical. They are absolutely real, and if followed sincerely, they yield real results. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s take a look at them.

With the implementation of the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, permission-based list building has become a norm. For this reason, entrepreneurs spare no effort to make their email marketing campaign reliable, effective, lawful and profitable. However, one thing that most business owners tend to forget is that email marketing is not all about creating and delivering messages laden with invaluable information and attractive offers.

In fact, the entire purpose of an email marketing campaign is to perform the following tasks:

  • To project you as an expert in your field of business.
  • To create an environment of trust and confidence.
