5. Swap ads with other ezine publishers. This will give you an effective way to increase your circulation by promoting your ezine in publications that targetrepparttar 124228 same audience as your ezine does.

How to Add 1000+ NEW Subscribers to Your List Each and Every Month!

Written by Melanie Rockett


We all keep hearing how important it is to grow our "lists." Whether your list is an ezine, an online newsletter or a customer contact list it can create an income or generate additional traffic to your website.

The problem is that many web entrepreneurs don't haverepparttar slightest idea how to kick start their lists, let alone keep them growing steadily month after month.

It is possible to develop and grow a list even if you have NO website. Having a website will definitely help, but don't wait, get your list started right now and add your website later.

Why do you NEED a list? As freelancers and web entrepreneurs, we need a way to keep in contact with our existing and past customers ... and we need a way to keep putting our information and name out in front of potential customers. We have to keep reminding customers that we exist and we have fabulous services to offer.

A graphic artist friend maintains a small local list. He sends out an occasional newsletter that talks aboutrepparttar 124227 work he has recently completed ... he includes samples ofrepparttar 124228 illustrations and graphics he has created for his clients. The clients he features love it because they get some exposure and free advertising! This newsletter serves to keep existing and old customer informed aboutrepparttar 124229 types of projects my friend does and it is a very non-pushy way of keeping his name in front of potential clients.

What my friend HASN'T done is expand his list and offer it to anyone who wishes to opt-in. He could potentially be building an international business with a very small additional effort.

How DO you build your list? There are literally DOZENS of ways! In this article I will show you how you can get started and literally add 1000+ new subscribers to your list a month.

First of all you must get your ezine or newsletter onto as many ofrepparttar 124230 list announcement services and list directories as you can ...
