It is important to build and maintain a high quality list of subscribers. Here are some of the most important steps you need to take when building a profitable list.

1. First, make sure you put up a good landing page.

It should be well-designed and professional looking. If you don’t have any design skills then hire someone to do this for you. You can also use optimizepress or any other software for building landing pages.

2. Next, put a web form on your landing page

Offer your customers the opportunity to opt-in to your mailing list. Give something away free to encourage them to opt in. This can be an ebook, a video, something of value that your subscribers can use.

3. Make sure any freebies you give away are of the highest quality

Your subscribers on your list will judge the worthiness of your products and services based on the freebies they get.

4. Include a lot of professionally written content and interesting information for your visitors.

Your customers will want to read interesting things and want to look for more than just a sales pitch. Content sites are a great way to build trust and loyalty. You can build a content site jam-packed with articles and helpful information, then link to your sales page from your content site.

5. Make sure you keep your customer’s information private.

If you tell your customer’s you will not share his or her personal information, then don’t share it with anyone. You will ruin your reputation, and word spreads fast on the Internet.

6. Take some time to try the product you offer yourself.

Make sure it is something you consider worthy of buying. If you are selling a book you wrote, make sure it has mass appeal and will benefit the target audience you plan to market it to.

7. Provide top-notch customer service.

This is the number one way to stay ahead of the game. If your customers are happy and you resolve their questions and complaints immediately, then you will win their loyalty and trust.

8. Reward customers that refer others to you.

This is a simple way to build trust and loyalty.

9. Respond to your customer’s complaints or inquiries immediately

Your main  goal in mind is to always to satisfy your customer.

10. Remain truthful and honest in all you do.

A customer will sniff out a scam faster than a dog will a bone. Don’t lie, don’t trick and don’t steal. Be honest and be who you are, and you will do well working on the internet and building a profitable  list.

      Hi Siphosith,

      These surely are great tips for our lists. A good landing page is a must because it is the very first thing people see and needs to be working in good order. Also we must give some kind of incentive for people to opt-in, a free anything works well and it surely must be something that is of good quality.

      I like #6 because if it is something I offer that I haven’t used myself, I never will offer it. I see a lot of people offering things that they have not used themselves and when a question arises what do they do? Hmmm….

      Our main goal is to always satisfy our customer. Customer service always has to come first. People will run from you if you don’t reply.

      Great tips!

      Excellent advice Siphosith!

      All ten of your tips are spot on!And #’s 3, 6,7 , 9 & 10, if
      consistently done, will make a world of difference in the long run!

      And I really like what you shared in point # 3, that being,
      your subscribers and potential customers/clients will judge the
      worthiness of your business, products and or services!

      That is an excellent point and one that far too aspiring entrepreneurs
      and or small business owners overlook!

      Great post! Thanks so much for sharing it!

      I’m not so certain about the landing page creation yet, but I’ve seen it work for others, so… I may try it and see if my opt-in rate improves.

      I’ve also been thinking of offering more things for my lists because I’ve recently been sitting in on some pretty good presentations that align with what I’ve been doing.

      Thanks for sharing this with us. 🙂
