Why Is Building An Email List So Important? - Here are some guidelines for successful email marketing.

Your email list is the life blood of your internet business. The people on your email list should be your target customers. Your aim should be to build a following of people that look forward to receiving your email and listen to what you have to tell them. To be successful there is a flow of progress that is key to having a successful online business. The first thing you must set up should be your Domain Name, your Hosting account and your Website. Your website is where your contacts have a place to come to and find you. They also need a place where they can securely leave their email and name. You'll need to create a Capture Page for your visitors to enter their email address & name. You must ensure that they do not have any difficulty in the process. A point to bear in mind here is that even after you've drawn the visitor to your site, there is no fixed rule that says they must purchase from you the first time they visit your website. They usually don't. Which means we must make sure there is some way by which they can leave their contact information before they go? You do need to remind them of your business and follow up. You can do this by asking them to sign up in exchange for something valuable you offer them. Like a free download or newsletter. In this manner, your list continues to build. You must find a way to follow up with these contacts to convert them into customers. Your capture page will be the first impression you give your visitors. By prompting your visitors to enter their name and email, it can insure you of having a large list. Your website creates your second impression with your prospects. So make sure you build a site that is fitting with the market you are targeting.

Your emails should contain 'Relevant Quality Content.' You must think about what to write in your emails. It's OK to try and sell products to your subscribers but you must also provide useful and relevant information. Telling visitors what you've got, tell them what it can do for them, why its beneficial to them and give them the next thing to do. If you don't send them messages that are helpful, they will cease to read them or they will unsubscribe. So make sure you provide value, because it will be a worthwhile investment. Try and set a schedule so your subscribers know what day they will usually receive an email from you. Add a little teaser at the bottom of the email talking about the next email so they will actually look forward to it. Its a good process to register with an Autoresponder Software site. Autoresponder sites offer Free-Membership and a Paid-Membership, depending on the site. Do some homework and research which ones offer which kinds of memberships, trial periods, types of service, how their automated email system works etc. The next thing we need is some form of autoresponder service or script. What route you take here really depends on how serious you are about the business/website. A good service will securely collect and store your email addresses in a database, send the emails to your subscribers either scheduled or immediately, provide stats like open and click thru rates. You must remember that it is not just for size that you are growing your list. Why you are doing it is so you can convert it into business. You can start with a strong small list and build it as you go along.

Email marketing is a very cost-effective way for a business to market its products or services to a broad audience. If you can plan an effective email campaign with a quality email list then you can achieve great results from it.
