What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.

Thanks for the tips Simon. I agree that if you can keep in mind that your aim is to be helpful and build a personal relationship with your subscribers then email can be very effective.

Gonzalo Chagas • 8 years ago

Flyers works great to build a list offline, and you will get a very targeted list because when people take the time to type your web site info to their browser that means they are very interested in your product.

Great tips

Hi Alvin, we normally require all imported contacts to confirm their subscription. However in your case, our Compliance Department may import the list for you without having to confirm it. The decision about this is always made after communicating with this Department. Could you please contact them directly by leaving the message at: http://www.getresponse.com/...

I am in the parenting and children education business. Over the years, I have conducted many parenting talks and workshops where i have collected thousand of names and emails from my attendees who want to be on my online newsletter list. I have input their info on a spreadsheet and have been sending them the newsletter using mail merge with MS Words and Outlook.

I also have an account with Get Getresponse for optin list on my parents website.

May I know how I can import my online list to Get Response without having to request my subscribe to re-confirm their subscription again? Will Get Response's team able to help me with that?

Paul Facey • 8 years ago

Thanks for sharing.

I wasn't aware that there was an iPhone App for this service.

That's great! Especially for network meetings and live workshops.

Plus, I could even use this to "WOW" my clients :o

Thanks for your comments. QR codes can definitely boost the number of new subscribers. You might also like our whitepaper about mobilizing email marketing with QR codes: www.getresponse.com/learnin...

Thomas, I am happy that it works also for you. We've tried collecting new sign ups at different trade shows and seminars. It brings fantastic results if you can offer small incentive to trigger new subscriptions.

Thomas • 8 years ago

Great article. Seminars and presentations really work, I tried it several times successfully.


Greg Clowminzer • 8 years ago

QR code sounds cool. Will you have something for andriod phone like the iphone mentioned above.

I must admit that this is one perfect insight. It surely gives a company the opportunity to get in on the ground floor and really take part in creating something special and tailored to their requirements.

Bill Clemens • 9 years ago

Great article with a ton of incite. I have been building lists and teaching others the Art of List Building for over 10 years now. And I have to say you nailed just about every pertinent topic. I would love to see a revised edition since this was written in 2007 and it is now 2011.

If your ever interested in being a guest blogger I would welcome your articles, my site is billclemens.com If your interested shoot me an email.

Have a great day.

Even for a free account, I'm already ecstatic and got tonnes to do with it! As soon as my list hit the free limit, I will surely upgrade my account!

Thank you GetResponse. I'm truly blessed to know this great company!

Hi there,

Thanks for these great tips and are very invaluable in internet marketing business especially in creating the list. As they say , the money is in the list. It is not easy to create a list without knowing how and you need tools. I am learning alot being new to the business and these are good content. Thanks again. Please continue to give more tips. You are helping everyone and doing a great job.

Darielle • 9 years ago

Thanks for the insightful information, in helping meet and serve the needs of clients, family as well as friends.

listbuilding • 9 years ago

15 great points, thanks Simon

We often think that money is in the list.
It is not always true!
Skipping an email opt-in page is often a good idea with electronics, consumer goods and high-end physical products that can be bought at a store.
I have a question for you. Did you ever find a market that buys plasma TV sets from an email list?
On the other hand if you are concentrating on a niche, a list might be of use to you, but you need to understand that every market is different.

Kevin • 3 years ago

Good point. I'm new to list building but there is a lot of follow up, blogging etc to get those subscribers to convert l. I'm looking at e-commerce as another option.

Marie Abbatoy • 10 years ago

Great tips on how to market and build an email list. I really appreciate this and will put to good use!!

Heatley Gilmore • 10 years ago

Really enjoyed the tips provided above. Something that seems to work very well for many of my offline clients who are looking to build databases is the use of simple tried and proven data collecting techniques.

Many of our clients set up an in store competition that is drawn each month and the only way people can enter is by entering their name and email address on the entry form. We can then load the details into their email marketing suite with client approval of course and deliver the monthly e-newsletter which we have designed and written for our clients.

Many of our clients are increasing the size of their database by over 400 a month using this system. It works really well in smaller regions or where your market is local. For more information on our done for you email marketing systems visit our website.

Email campaigns are conceivably the most flexible means of marketing than all other marketing strategies.
