Build Your Subscriber List Quick and Easy



Subscriber List: A thing of value

It would be quite understandable if you have looked at the title of this post and muttered to yourself something along the line of, this guy (meaning me, the writer) is crazy, there’s no such thing as “quick and easy” when building a subscriber list. You might express even more disbelief if you had started a subscriber list that did not work out as well as you had expected. So if this sounds familiar I’d ask that you don’t click away yet, and don’t give up on building your subscriber list yet either, because we may be able to help each other.

Of course, I’m assuming that a subscriber list is something you still value and would like to have; and if that is true then let me suggest that you make a fresh start by utilizing the suggestions outlined further down this page; but before we proceed it might be helpful to share some of our previous efforts to build an subscriber list, because it is important to recognize and separate methods that failed from those that work so we can avoid the former and utilize the latter.

If you’re like I was I discovered the subscriber list-building methods that really work, you probably have read countless articles and success stories of people creating small fortunes with subscriber lists and sought expert advice on how to create a subscriber list of your own. Then when you thought you knew everything there is to know about building subscriber lists and have followed their advice to the letter and still weren’t able to create a list you can make a profit with, you became upset and this led to disappointment and, ultimately surrender; and you stopped trying.

Proper research

Then you decided to invest your money in a different way by hiring professional email marketers, subscriber list builders and content writersarticle writers to help you out, but quickly realized that the expenses you incurred, when compared to the very small percentage of your subscribers who actually bought anything from you, it was clear that you were still in an unprofitable position; especially after seeing the statistics and sales figures yielded by campaigns you launched with the help of those so-called professionals.

So you asked yourself, what could have gone wrong? Why have others succeeded where you have failed? Could it have been that you committed the common mistake of launching email marketing campaigns without the proper research? Or that you chose a topic you thought to be quite popular but it turned out not to be the case? One lesson which is learned from proper research is that list subscribers do not buy a product or service instantly simply based on their subscriber status or because the email marketer (you or I) sent them offers.

I’ve learned that the first and most important step you can take in order to build a profitable subscriber list is to get your potential customers to know, like and trust you after which they are more likely to take a chance on your products; because let’s face it, just launching an subscriber list would not make you an expert and a believable seller. You have to put some acquaintance work into the process by publishing a number of articles on your chosen topic, presumeably the subject you know best and feel most passionate about.




Consistency

If your chosen topic is not the one you know most about, then change it and write about the topic you know well, and make sure your overal website theme is based on the same topic so that your articles, blog posts and website theme conform to the same topic. This is known as consistency and it is the one element that helps to establish expertise and create trust between a website publisher and audience more than any other.

In addition to consistency of topic in your articles and website theme, it is certainly helpful to gain some knowledge about your website visitors; because knowing a little about their preferences, likes and dislikes will help you to create the kind of content that will more likely win them over. You can gain this insight by asking your visitors to complete a brief survey from time to time, or even at the end of each article or blog post you publish.

Similar information can be obtained through forums, in the sense that these sites allow you to provide expert advice as it pertains to the topic of your expertise. This is another instance in which the results will not come instantaneously, but rather in time as your participation is recognized as helpful, valuable and – in some cases – indispensable to other forum participants. The expert advice and opinions you provide at these forums should be as forthright and factual as those you provide in your blog posts and, as a result, forum members will follow you to your site and may end up being part of your customer base.

Highlighting value

At the point you feel that people trust you, you will then be able to start your own subscriber list which could consist of subscribers from various sources; and after that you can build a customer base from these same sources which could end up consisting of website visitors, forum participants, survey responders and even your own friends, who can usually be good customers once you let them know about your website. just email them a link to your site so that they will be able to see what your business is all about. It is important to understand that the money will only come in when consumers and subscribers know, like and trust you.

As for your product or service it is important to know and understand that most people looking to lay out their money to buy something is no different to you and I; they want a product or service that they believe will be a good exchange for their money. They are simply not going to buy something on your recommendation if they don’t know and trust you, but they also will not buy an item if it is not worth the money, so you need to find a product or service that people want and need.

You don’t have to be the product maker as long as you have researched and learned about it well and have determined that it is of high value. Invest your time, effort and money to learn what you can sell to the satisfaction of your customer and subscriber base, thereby keeping them happy and you in their good graces. Even if it is a product you don’t want (you don’t necessarily have to like it either), it may well be something your customers need, so do your research well and you would see the results can be very positive (and profitable). It often helps to provide your subscribers with promotional material that they could actually use and spread around, so a free ebook can get generate a lot of interest and positive results.

A profitable subscriber list

By now you’ve probably heard about the joint venture (JV) whereby subscriber list owners cross sell each other’s lists. This technique works only after you have built your own subscriber list; but it might be quite helpful to make friends with other subscriber list owners anyway. This can be most beneficial, especially if it is someone who has already launched a successful subscriber list and have the experience in this venture. Because – as they say – experience is still the best teacher. While there are many articles available on the Web for you to read and learn from, there is nothing like getting a first hand account from someone you trust, so if you’re going to pursue a joint venture it helps to know (and probably like) the other marketer as well.

Experienced subscriber list owners as joint venture partners will make sure you know what to do and what not to do since they also value their lists that they will be entrusting to you (your product and/or service) and therefore must make sure that you do nothing to tarnish their reputation with their subscribers. So while different situations occur for different people, the general concept can still be very helpful to you and them. There are many things to avoid and it is in the interest of your joint venture partners to tell you which ones are most critical.

Building a profitable subscriber list don’t just happen overnight. There is much preparation and effort involved in the process; and since a subscriber list should be built from scratch you will do well to diligently maintain the quality of your list as it grows; keep it organized, manageable and even if you have to get or hire help just make sure that your subscribers are happy and satisfied, and they will be willing to buy from you continuously.

Just for the record, “quick” as used in the title of thisd post is a relative term, so think of it in the context of a subscriber list that serves your purposes (profitable, well-maintained and consisting of list members who know, like and trust you, as opposed to continued failure and disappointing efforts which could go on forever. Hope this helps… Good luck!

The Best Quality Photo Prints are Digitally Enhanced





From an idea to domination

From 1961 when “Eugene F. Lally of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory” had an idea “to take pictures of the planets and stars while travelling through space to give information about the astronauts’ position…” to 1975 when the first digital camera was actually created “by Steve Sasson, an engineer at Kodak,”; to 1991 with creation of the Nikon F3, “the digital camera you could [actually] buy; to 1997 when the first cameraphone photo is shared; to 2014 when digital photography dominates the market to a point where “experts predict that as many as 380 billion photographs are taken each year” and that number has continued to rise “as the world gradually saturates with digital cameras,” digital photography had at that time become the technology of choice for all manner of photography, professional and otherwise.

Digital photography is considered to be the easiest way to take a snapshot and enhance its overall quality, features and appearance, especially when viewed as an artform; because the act of taking pictures without the need for film must truly be seen as art. And because there is no film involved in the process of taking pictures digitally, the photographer will have a unique convenience (luxury?) of saving those shots which are good and eliminating others which are bad. Digital photography offers the easiest method of capturing good images and converting them into interesting art pieces.

After all, who would not want a picture-perfect shot? The fact must be pointed out however, that picture taking (photographic shots, angles and quality) does not always result in the best and most acceptable images, and this is exactly where digital enhancement becomes useful and necessary.

If you’re wondering, so what exactly is digital enhancement?

A more detailed answer might be that digital enhancement is the best way to improve your snapshot and make it look more attractive, because with digital enhancement, you can easily increase the attractiveness of images by simply adjusting the brightness, contrast and sharpness of the image. And photographers also has the chance to enhance the color balance of a picture, while resizing the image and cropping it at the same time, which can also be done with ease.

Advantages of digital photography

There are many innovative ways on how to improve a snapshot; and all of these are made possible because of digital technology. Anyone who is active in photography can take advantage of the digital photography services that are being offered online, as digital prints are long-lasting compared to the traditional photos. They are fade-resistant and water-proof; and another great advantage of digital photography is that everything about editing and printing photos is accomplished with the help of do-it-yourself printers. Photo prints produced in this manner are proven to last much longer, unlike the film-based photography.

Digital enhancement works in a way that allows a photographer the opportunity to prepare his/her pictures and modify them to achieve the greatest image quality; and anyone can do the photo enhancements using photo editing software, or by utilizing the services of a professional digital photography firm. When you opt to use photo editing software, the image is usually saved in jp or jpeg format, after which you can upload the images and send them to several websites that offer photo printing services.
