We all know a mailing list is a very powerful tool. With one, you can contact your subscribers and let them know whenever you have a great deal or tips, articles, and information to share. Building a list invariably involves using an autoresponder and forms on your website, but you only get new subscribers by promoting that site.
Another way to build your list is through exchanges, where a group of website owners and marketers will drive subscribers to each other – in effect sharing their lists indirectly.
One such tool I have used in the past was Subscription Rocket – a very powerful and simple to use exchange that you can install on any webpage. This will show a quick window with a selection of lists and e-zines and it allows your visitors to opt-in to these lists if they so desire.
Of course, YOUR list/e-zine will also appear in these windows, across many, many, websites, thus gaining you additional readers without having to promote to them directly!
Version 2 of Subscription Rocket is due soon. It’s not open quite yet, but NOW is the time to join the announcement list and be ready when it does.
Because Subscription Rocket also uses a great referral system, you can promote the service itself to other e-zine and list owners and build your own memberships that way. So get on board before the crowds and make sure YOU are in a great position to benefit.
Update: Subscription Rocket is relaunching as “List Crew” – still the same great service, plus more! I’ll be posting extra information soon.
