This question came to my head recently when I was thinking about this whole list

building thing.

Do you know the answer?

You dont really need a blog to build a list.

Let me explain.

If you have read my article showing how to build a list without a website , you will

know that a website (like blogs ) is not 100% necessary.

All you basically need is an e-mail marketing service, a squeeze page and a free offer .

If you have no idea what these things mean ,I will explain them today. But i will talk

about them comprehensively in other articles on this blog.

To get read these articles when they are ready, subscribe using any of the sign up

forms on the blog ,or just go here and sign up.

By the way, it may seem ironic that I am saying one doesnt really need a blog to build

a list but I have one.(at least the one you are reading now)

Well, I will explain why an saying so and exactly what you need to do.

Like I said before ,these are the things you need.

1. A squeeze page

A squeeze page is a single website with the sole aim of collecting the e-mail contact

(and name) of a person so they can become your subscriber. The page usually

promises something for free that will be downloaded after one subscribes.

To build a squeeze page you need a domain name and a web hosting account. I will

write an article explaining this in details.

2. An Autoresponder /E-Mail Marketing Service

This is the most essential tool for building a list . You cant do without it. This is a

service that will help you collect , manage and send emails to subscribers . There are

many e-mail marketing services including free and paid ones... but I recommend

GetResponse.

I have tried free ones before I got burnt ..(even MailChimp) . Pay for a good one like

GetResponse. Their service is affordable and effective.

3. A Free Offer (Or Anything Valuable to The Subscriber)

You need to offer something valuable to the subscriber ,to entice him or her to give

out their email address and opt into your list. This valuable offer could be anything a

subscriber will love. It has to be something very related to the niche where you are

building a list.

For example , if your niche is Dating for men , you could create a report about 7

mistakes men make when the meet a girl for the first time. Or something along those

lines. Just keep it relevant to what people want in your niche. Your free offer has to be

enticing and very valuable to your subscribers.

Apart from e-books you can give free offers in many formats like:

1. Audio products

2. Video products

3. Softwares

4. Plugins

5. Discount codes

Etc.

Just remember it should something so valuable ...you could even sell it. So if these are

the 3 important and basic thing needed to build a list, what about blogs?

Building A List With A Blog

Having a blog ...is something you can do additionally to help build your list. It is not the

most important thing. Or rather ...it is not the most effective.

According to experts, squeeze pages convert readers to subscribers much higher than

blogs and other types of websites.

Blogs can help you build a list especially if you have organic traffic coming to it ...but it

should not be the totally relied upon.

If you have a blog in your niche ...fine...but build a squeeze page for it.

If you have just a squeeze page already , even better , you can create a blog along

side. But a squeeze page is more effective for list building and should be your basic list

building machine.

Conclusion

This is the main point made in this article.

You dont really need blog to build a list but you NEED a squeeze page.

There is nothing wrong with owning a blog and building a list with it...but a squeeze

page is more effective.

If you have a blog , get a squeeze page.

If you have a squeeze page, you can still get a blog if you like.
