One ofrepparttar fastest ways to develop, build, and grow your own list of subscribers is to develop a "mini" course with an incredibly compelling promise.

I have personally used "mini" courses to build lists of several thousand subscribers in as little as a week.

A "mini" course is simply a series of e-mail's where you teach people a specific skill, set of skills, or reveal other information they really want to know.

Inrepparttar 134261 process of providing this focused, valuable information, you prove to your subscribers that you are THE expert in a particular area - and, you also encourage people to pay you to get even BETTER information from ebooks and information products you've either written or recommend. An example of a "mini" course offer I've used with great success isrepparttar 134262 free mini course at that appears inrepparttar 134263 exit pop up window when you leaverepparttar 134264 site. The promise of this "mini" course is strong and compelling. Here's what it says...

So here'srepparttar 134266 basic formula in a nutshell: Strong promise+ low risk+ high perceived reward= Subscribers

Now, if you'd like to build your own list of rabid subscribers, here are 5 sure-fire tips for creating a mini- course that truly kicks butt!

Tip #1 - The Promise

If you want to launch a successful mini-course, target an audience with a specific need and then make themrepparttar 134267 biggest possible promise you can deliver on.

People are pressed for time and rarely see as much value in something they get for free as opposed to something they pay a lot of money for.

Add to thisrepparttar 134268 fact thatrepparttar 134269 Internet gets more and more crowded everyday and you can see thatrepparttar 134270 best offers arerepparttar 134271 ones that grab people's attention by making a benefit- driven promise they can't resist.

Even though you offer your mini-course for free, you still must SELL people on WHY they should pay you with their time and attention.

Example: If you want to do a mini-course on real estate investing, look forrepparttar 134272 biggest and best promise you can make for people.

Let's look at these various promises for identical mini- course content:

Good: How to make a fortune in foreclosures.

Better: How to find and buy a profitable foreclosure within 2 weeks.

Best: How to find and buy a profitable foreclosure property in your area within 2 weeks - using none of your own money!

** The promise you make has everything to do with whether or not people sign up. IMPORTANT: After they sign up, make sure you deliver onrepparttar 134273 promise.

Tip #2 - Don't reinventrepparttar 134274 wheel

Look for existing content - your own or other people's - you can adapt directly or indirectly intorepparttar 134275 mini-course.

Hey, I understand you're busy... I'm busy too!

Why would you want to spend 2 days coming up with allrepparttar 134276 content for your mini-course if you already have past information you can adapt!?

If you don't have any existing material, then find someone else who has written an article and use that for part of your mini-course - with their permission of course.
