You gotta like this time of year if you are an Internet Marketer. I guess you could say we are in the busy season. If you sign up to any of the offers you may get in your email inbox, then you have seen a deluge of emails from just about everybody. I know my box has been over run with all kinds of new launches, new products and lots and lots of giveaways.
Now if you are serious about getting into Internet Marketing you should definitely be building that list. I know, you hear it all the time but there is far more truth in it than may meet the eye. If you are going to be selling products, and oh yeah you should be selling your own products, you will need someone to market them to.
Yes, you can go about and put them on a website and you may get yourself a few sells here and there but, nothing beats being able to sell things to your list. They are familiar with you, you should be contacting them on a regular basis, so they know you and feel comfortable with you. And if you are recommending a product or have created a product they might want or need, you have a waiting audience.
I know I find myself constantly trying to stay on top of sending things out to my list. It might be a free report, a recommendation about something they may want to read or use and even a product that they may well want to buy, affiliate marketing. I can’t say that I am regular but is something I can work on. Especially with using an autoresponder to get messages out is so easy so, I can say I have no excuse.
Right now would be the perfect time to think about building or improving on that list. There are a number of Giveaway events that are happening right now. A good way to get started on some list building skills. Giveaway events are pretty straightforward. You provide a gift to giveaway in exchange for receiving a name and email address so you can follow up with the individuals who might be interested in your product.
Don’t have a product, then joining a giveaway will be a great opportunity for you to find a product that you can make into your own so you can participate in future events, again to build that list. If nothing else you can follow the process and see just what they are all about. Remember, there are others ways you can go about building that list. This is but one of many we will talk about.
Most of these are ongoing and a few will be starting soon so if you find a gift that you might want to fix up yourself you might want to check out this video series. Another thing to remember is that you will see a lot of products and the temptation is to download everything. But believe me you will end up with products gathering dust on your computer. Take what you need for now, there will be more giveaways or you could come back before they are over to gather more. Just have fun and start building that list.
Here are a few giveaways that are either going right now or are upcoming. I am sure if you check your inbox you will see quite a few. You probably may have deleted most of them:
