No List? No Money? No Business!
Whether you're brand new to online business or an old pro...
Building your list is the most important job you have if you want to be a successful online business person. You're ALWAYS listbuilding. But you may be doing it very badly. Most people do!
If your listbuilding strategy is "Build it and THEY will come..."
How's that working for you?
One of my favorite movies of all time is "Field of Dreams" with Kevin Costner and James Earl Jones. In the beginning of the movie, Ray Kinsella (Costner) hears a mysterious voice in the cornfield whispering, "Build it, and he will come..."
Baffled at first, Ray figures out that he's supposed to plow under a cornfield and build a baseball field. He works like a dog to create a pristine field in the middle of nowhere for nobody in particular.
And he sits there and waits...and waits...and waits...until the bank threatens to foreclose. Distraught over the dilemma between the magical field and the bank foreclosure, his slimy brother-in-law tries to force him to sell.
Toward the end of the movie, Terrence Mann (Jones) tells Ray:
People will come, Ray.
They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom.
They'll turn up your driveway, not knowing for sure why they're doing it.
They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children...longing for the past.
"Of course, we won't mind if you look around," you'll say.
"It's only $20 per person."
They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it.
For it is money they have and peace they like.
I love the idea this represents: Do something with all the passion that you can muster with a bit of divine purpose thrown in and things will just work out in your favor.
That was the message in "The Secret" movie. I liked that too.
Of course, they both ignore the most important part of the story.
Massive Action! Without Massive Action, Nothing Happens...
That's one of Einstein's greatest axioms: Nothing happens until something moves.
If you watched "Field of Dreams" you'll see it right away. Ray did a HECKUVA lot of work.
First, he had a vision; then he made a decision; next, he plowed under the cornfield; then, he got in his van and went to Boston to find Terrence Mann (Jones): instead of going straight home, he followed the vision to Minnesota to look up "Moonlight" Graham (Burt Lancaster) and bring him back to the ghost-infested ball field; and finally, he persisted in his passion.
Your online business will NOT survive without massive action. And without passion, massive action is a drag!
If you want to build a massive list, you have to take massive action!
Especially in online business, it's more like "build it, put it on a flat-bed truck, and take it to the people!" That's massive action.
Building your list is Job #1.
Too many people new to online business complain that they aren't making any money. They complain that their list isn't big enough!
My friend Connie Ragen Green generated her first $100,000 with a list of 673 people. That's tiny!
And you now have no excuse.
Even small list can can yield great profits if you build great relationships.
But it's true that if you want massive amounts of money from your online business, a big AND responsive list will get you there.
Now, I have another friend who built a list of 320,000 people. That's impressive - until you find out that it's almost worthless because it doesn't respond to him any longer.
My list is somewhere in the middle...
Big enough to generate a good living while being very responsive and growing fast enough to generate a VERY good living over time.
More than 60 percent of the people my list are buyers. They've purchased something on my site. That's awesome. And I've built great relationships with many of the folks on that buyers' list.
It's time for everyone, even those of us with good businesses, to focus every day on building our lists.
Step up. Put some skin in the game. Commit to your success
Successful online entrepreneurs have proven that the money is in the responsive list! But there is no money in not trying.
No matter how awesome your blog or website is, it can look like a lonely planet if you don't have the right strategy in place.
With a list, you have the power to do great things:
Build people's awareness of you, your products and services so that opportunities come to you
Connect with customers and potential buyers on a deeper and more personal level
Hit the Target
Discover what your target market really wants and needs and give it to them
Inform and Educate
Keep people engaged with various forms of content and help them stay informed about their interest
Gather Rabid Followers
Through consistent leadership, you're creating a tribe of followers becoming more loyal everyday
Find Action Takers
Get people to act on your suggestions, offers and referrals while you provide the service
Let's do a gut check. Just how committed are you to your list?
When you have a list, your goal is to nurture it until it becomes highly responsive. You have people coming back to your site, engaging with you personally, and buying from you.
That's when the money pours in!
For so many people, list building is just a dream that never becomes a reality. Oh, they've got excuses!
- I don't know how to build a list
- I'm too busy
- There are too many tools
- I don't know where to start
- Getting traffic is too hard
- Who's going to want what I have?
And many, many more... In fact, you might be able to add a few yourself. Now, what are you going to do about it.
