Building email lists worth showing your friends is internet marketing (IM) gold. Why? Because an opt-in list filled with subscribers who want to know, listen and follow you is a tried and true way to make money online.
Why are lists so important?
Opt-in lists, especially double opt-ins, open the door to building trust with your visitors. Its no surprise that one of the main reasons visitors don’t buy from a vendor is trust, oops… lack of trust.
So how do you establish trust?
A question all online entrepreneurs need to answer at some point if they want to make a stable income online. Trust is earned, not given and as an entrepreneur, you have a small window of opportunity to gain it or your visitor will go somewhere else, probably your competitor.
Be upfront on what you do, how you can help them accomplish what they need to do and make the process of attaining your product/service easy for them. By catering to the needs of your visitor and providing answers to questions they may have, you’re breaking down their wall and by the time they’re ready to make that purchase, you know you’ve done a good job establishing trust.
Easier said than done my friend.
You got that right! Remember I mentioned that small window of opportunity to gain trust, its actually VERY TINY! Website owners have to hook the visitor, give them a reason to stay and why to buy from them. All within a few seconds. The odds are stacked firmly against you, but there is light at the end of the tunnel my fellow Dollar Tycoon!
