Tell Them A Story!

You can begin making money with your small list very quickly if you decide in advance how to approach this as a marketer. This means that you must have a plan of action and then take action to bring it all together. Don’t wait until you have a specific number of people before you start this marketing process. Here are a few ways to reach out to the people on your list and start the process of generating revenue.

Storytelling – we all grew up listening to stories told by the adults in our lives. When we started school we heard even more stories. Over time we became accustomed to hearing stories that shaped the way we make sense of the world around us. When you think of someone who has motivated or inspired you, it is very likely you will connect them with the story they tell. I have heard Les Brown speak twice now, and each time it is his stories that make him so memorable.

Craft your own story to let people know who you are and where you came from. It will allow them to make sense of who you are and how you can help them to succeed. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable in the eyes of your prospects. They will respect you for being honest and sharing a part of your life they may have never heard otherwise.

E-courses – you may have heard the story of internet legend Joe Vitale. He purchased a new sports car from the proceeds of his e-course, back in 2003. He asked his list what they wanted from him and then created an e-course that would provide that exact information.

You can do the same thing with your topic. Divide it up into several lessons that can be delivered by autoresponder. Every day you send them the next lesson in your e-course until it has all been delivered. People are willing to pay for the information and you can respond to them when they ask you questions during the course of your training. This is an excellent method of interacting with your list and monetizing the process.

When you are just starting out you will want to offer a free e-course to your prospects. This will give them a taste of what you have to offer. Be sure to include appropriate affiliate links for each lesson. This can prove to be very profitable over time.

Blogging – your blog is your home on the internet. It is also a way for you to speak to your prospects in a very personal way. Post an often as you can, as long as you have something you want to share. Then email your list with a link to your post. Tell them what you were thinking when you wrote it and ask them to visit your blog and leave a comment. We all assume that everyone on our list is reading our blog regularly. This is usually not true, so they will appreciate you letting them know what you have written about and how it will help them to achieve their goals. Another benefit to this is the added value of having more visitors to your blog. Make sure you have other posts and information they will be able to see when they are there.

Use these techniques to start connecting with your list, no matter what size it is currently. When I had less than a hundred people on my list I asked them for ideas on what to talk about in my next blog post. I had more than twenty responses! If you can get your list to be responsive, take action, and click on the links you provide, you will be on your way to having a successful online business. You truly can make huge profits from a very small list.
