How Do I Generate A List?
Really, to generate a list you need to get people to give you their details and agree to/request that you contact them. There are many ways to do this.
Almost everyone has seen an ‘optin form’ which is those forms that say “enter your email here”.
There are many different strategies to build your list, possibly faster etc., other strategies focus more on the quality of the people on the list rather than sheer quantity.
Really, on your website you always want to have some sort of optin form where the visitor can enter their details if they like. A common tactic is to offer an “ethical bribe” like a free report or something to induce the person to provide you their details.
But a simpler and much more effective method is to simply say “to learn more about xyz topic and receive your ongoing email newsletter revealing tips and tricks on how to xyz, enter your email”
Then you don’t need to create any sort of ‘bribe’ or anything and the customer is signing up under the premise you’ll be sending them emails over time and they’ll be getting them etc. Obviously, with the ‘bribe’ method a lot of people just signup to get the bribe and then unsubscribe immediately or simply never read your emails again.
With lists, you can have single-optin or double-optin. Single optin means that once they put their details in they are saved to your list. Double optin is where once they put their details in, they get sent a confirmation email which they have to open and click a link to confirm they actually requested the information.
It’s a known fact that double optin forms have a lower conversion rate, because a portion of people do not bother to click the confirmation link. But also, with single optin forms any person can easily enter a fake email address into the form. There’s two sides to the coin.
Regarding the law and CAN-SPAM Act, it looks a lot better for you if your list is double optin because then you KNOW that the person actually requested the information. With single optin anyone could type in anyone else’s email address etc.
The good news – and this is the primary reason we go with them (that and they are the cheapest plus have the best deliver rates) – is that Aweber is pretty much the highest regarded auto responder company in the world and they uphold impeccable standards when it comes to legitimately meeting the laws regarding email communications and SPAM etc.
You can actually use single optin with Aweber and still get quite good delivery rates… because remember people’s spam filters or junk mail boxes often pick up mail sent by addresses that aren’t in the customers address book – and rarely do customers go and add you into their address book when they enter their details.
With the double optin the customer has opened your email, clicked the confirmation link, and therefore it gets added to their ‘soft contacts’, which most main email providers like gmail and Hotmail will now not send your emails to spam because they know the customer has wanted to receive the email.
