I see many people join some business but don’t invest into what should be a priority.
A contact list is important for many reasons. First and most obvious is the ability to gather or capture email address from your website or blog by using a simple email form.
This will allow you to offer your site viewers an incentive to join your list in exchange for their email address.
Once your site viewer becomes a list subscriber they should receive good content from you regarding your site and whatever it it that you promised your viewer.
Use the automated “Thank You” page option to send your new list subscriber instantly the incentive you offered that they sighed up for.
You also have the ability to create multiple contact lists, sending your prospects through your automated online sales funnel.
Your contact list also helps develop business relationships through your informative pre-written newsletters.
You can create a set of newsletters and send them once per week, or whatever frequency you like. Add a link to your products or services in your newsletters. Not every newsletter needs to be a sales page.
Your newsletters need to be informative and broken into small chucks to be read and digested properly.
