When you are not well know, list building can be challenging because we are all on email overload. People are a lot more picky about giving out their email address than they used to be.

Many of my clients have had good results building their list using a Free Report or eBook and Facebook advertising. I recommend they set a limit of $25/week and then set up a campaign. They can sometimes (depending on the cost per click) get 100-200 sign ups a month for $100 spent.

You just need to keep a close watch on what you are spending so you don't go overboard.

I still prefer article marketing for free list building. I have written an article a day, every day, since 2007, and this has built my list with interested prospects. I then take all of the articles and repurpose them into many other formats.

Free teleseminars have been very effective for me. As has interviewing experts.

Hello Denise,

Your post is highly instructive... and yet, there are so many coaches and consultants neglecting this side of their business, forgetting that "the gold is in the list."

Thank you for sharing your wisdom with us!

Building an opt-in list is all about benefiting the recipient of your e-mails. From the outset, you must have something of value, usually in the form of information or promotions that they want and aren’t already getting from someone else. An effective method of building your opt-in list is to provide a beneficial freebie and not to saturate someone’s inbox with e-mail after e-mail that they will more than likely come to delete without ever opening over time.
