7 Critical List Building Blunders You Need To Avoid

1. Not using a squeeze page.

You need to build a lead capture page, the sole purpose of this page should be to capture they visitor emails addresses. A squeeze page should be your #1 list building weapon!

2. Difficult to navigate the website.

You need to build a build an easy to navigate website. Confusing.. too much clutter… not pushing people to opt-in.. a simple website with an emphasis on the opt-in will get better results.

3. Email only? or name and email?

I like to just ask for the email at first. After that, I ask them to fill in their profile (where possible) to get their name and phone number. This has been a heated debate for a long time. ‘Email only’ gets a higher opt-in rate, but what about follow up emails? Personalized emails get a higher open rate. So which one would you prefer?

4. Not getting quality traffic.

Maybe you can buy junk traffic for testing.. but when it’s time to get subscribers, got for quality over quantity.

5. Having a weak ‘bribe’.

It’s got to be exclusive, high-value and useful. For info-niches, give away a ‘secret’.. or if you’re selling a service, give away a case study.  Templates and done-for-you stuff works great too.

6. Not promoting your site.

The ‘If you build it they will come’ mentality is wrong. You’ve got to be promoting your landing page. The fastest way is with paid ads. Facebook, PPC, banner ads, email ads, these will give you fast results. SEO, links swaps, Youtube etc, these are free but take a little time.

7. Not tracking and testing.

Tracking traffic sources is vital. Split testing squeeze pages are also vital. It’s the only way to know what traffic is working. I use a Clickmagic to track my traffic.
