You may have set endless friend requests in Facebook and Twitter. You may have copied every email address there is in every individual profile. You may have posted endless comments on other people’s blogs with a link to your website. And yet, these methods are still not enough to create that gigantic network you have been trying to build. You need more traffic for your website. You need more contacts. You need more customers.
One technique on how to build your list on the Internet is through subscription. Always grab that chance that your site has been visited by a potential customer. Don’t ever let them leave your site without first signing up to your content or subscribing to an offer. Always offer them the chance to sign up on each and every page they visit on your site, and always remember to place your subscription box in areas where visitors could easily see them. The more they are reminded to sign up, the greater chance that they really would.
Another technique on how to build your list on the Internet is by not asking too much information. Don’t be aggressive in asking for your visitor’s email address to the point that they could only enter your site by giving the information you need. Definitely, they will click away from your site because you’re prompting them to do something that would need too much effort and as a result, you lose potential customers in the process. Don’t ask too much information when asking for subscription or you will frighten your visitors away. A long-page subscription form to be filled out would be a hassle to the customer’s part and they might even question why they need to give out too much information, they might just leave your site in the end. Always keep in mind that the subscription box is not for market research — a name and email address as a requirement would be enough.
Building your network requires a lot of time and patience. Just follow the above techniques and eventually you will see an increase in the number of subscribers!
