7 Powerful Ways to Add Thousands to your List and Master the MLM “Numbers Game”
In MLM, it’s not what you know, or even who you know. It’s actually more about who knows you. If you’re at all serious, you’ve got a list of subscribers to your blog, an email newsletter or other services. The object of the game is to build your list! After all, you’ve probably heard a thousand times…
“MLM is a numbers game!”
Making those numbers work for you is vital to your success. It’s not going to happen without hard work, “Rome wasn’t built in a day”. You can bet that any of the MLM gurus have lists in the tens of thousands — but they’re not stopping there. They keep on building.
That's why you know their names.
Do you want to become one of them?
Here’s 7 tips that can teach you How You Can Do IT.
1. Make it easy for visitors to subscribe.
Easy forms are a must. You don’t need to collect anything beyond their name and email. They’re signing up because they want to –and asking for any more information might just make them think it’s too much work to subscribe
2. Make it easy and painless for subscribers to unsubscribe
Do NOT become a spammer. At the end of every message you send, include a user-friendly way for them to stop receiving messages from you.
3. Offer an something valuable in exchange for their contact information
A free report, a free e-book, a multi-part training course, a webinar or audio series, or a weekly or daily newsletter are among the best ways to entice people to subscribe. Just make sure what you’re providing is unique, valuable, and well-produced.
4. Solve your visitors’ problems.
If your blog is public, provide great problem-solving content that makes your visitors want to keep coming back for more. Provide a way for them to subscribe to your website so they get the latest content
5. Participate in forums and groups relevant to your niche.
Find out where your target market “hangs out” online, and join those forums and groups. Offer pertinent content, contribute meaningfully to the conversations in progress, and provide a link in your signature to direct people to your site.
6. Don’t “give away the store”
When offering your services, use compelling headlines, bullets, and copy that hints at the value they’ll get if they join your list.
7. Create a sense of urgency
Use an “expiration date” to motivate your visitors to opt in to your list right away. You don’t need to get complicated — just mention that your special offer expires at a certain time on a certain date. Psychologically, your potential subscriber will then be forced to make a decision quickly.
