I have to say I am a bit “flabbergasted” – for a few weeks now I have had the free ebook from Alex Jeffreys (“Listbuilding with Alex”, you can see it in the sidebar on the right) up for grabs, and I have had only very few takers.
I wonder why? Building email lists and marketing to the subscribers is one of the most effective ways of earning money online (the money is in the list, remember!), and nobody wants some free info on it? How strange!
(Here I have to throw in that you might think – well, Petra has never talked about list building on her blog, what would she know??? – Well, whilst I am right now only at the very beginning of my list building efforts after joining Alex Jeffrey’s Coaching, there is one message out there in the IM world that rings loud and clear, and you will be hearing it over and over again, and that is to build a list because the money is in the list. And those people are right. Whilst you can make a decent amount from other affiliate marketing, if you have a closer look you will see that literally all of the really successful Internet Marketers owe their success to having huge email lists which they market to.)
Alex Jeffreys, one of these aforementioned “List Building Gurus”, is giving away some really great information in his report “Listbuilding with Alex”, how come nobody seems interested? Now I can only think of a few things:
- Either that nearly everybody who visits my blog has got a copy of the book already 😮
- People who visit my blog are Listbuilding experts themselves (….? Yeah right!)
- You are all scared to leave your email address for fear to get swamped with emails after.
Well, let me assure you on No.3 that I haven’t even got any follow up emails set up yet, as – if I am completely honest – this is one of my personal “FEAR FACTORS” in listbuilding that seems to hold me back from progressing in this field – I am scared of having to send out emails to my list on an ongoing basis. Don’t worry, I will tackle it in my own time (like everything else), but for the time being you could just grab the book without being hassled by me for a while!!! 😉
So I would really be interested to hear from you why you don’t seem to think it worth getting a free ebook from a great Internet Marketer. Seriously, please leave me a comment below as to why you don’t go for free information when you can get it. Might it be that you are sick of the OTO’s (One Time Offers) that appear so often after you sign up for the free stuff? That you don’t trust yourself not to spend money on it? Or is it something else?
Let me know! I am looking forward to this!
(And, by the way, if you think you might like the book about building lists, just go and grab it now! )
