Social networking is a great method that you can use to bring in new subscribers and build a responsive mailing list. It is fast becoming a standard in the way that individuals and businesses communicate with each other. It is literally changing the way we connect and interact with like minded people.
In its basic form social networking is simply a group of people that gather together because of a certain topic or interest. Before the advent of social networking websites this type of interaction was conducted in person, especially at work, in schools and in universities. While this type of interaction still occurs social networking online is much more popular.
This is simply because unlike most real world meeting places, the internet is loaded with countless people who are seeking to connect with others, share information and experiences on just about any topic you can think of. These people are building friendships, professional relationships, finding employment, marketing their business and building massive lists of followers, all with a few clicks of their mouse.
There are a number of good reasons why this method of list building is more effective compared to conventional list building methods. First of all list building is completely integrated into social networking sites, as a matter of fact it is the core purpose of the sites.
Take Twitter for instance, seeing how many followers you can get is the main goal of most members. This race to attract followers makes building your list faster and simpler than ever before. On Twitter you can quickly build a list of followers and share any information you want with them from inside the Twitter platform. You can even direct them to your squeeze page and entice them to join your regular mailing list, if you so desire. The important thing to remember when you are using Twitter to build your list is that you must respect your followers, share good information with them, never bombard them with spam and they’ll be happy keep following you.
The same holds true on Facebook. You can seek out and accept friends from all over the world that are interested in your chosen niche. These are people that are ready and willing to communicate with you and with the use of Facebook pages you can easily create a squeeze page within your Facebook account so that you can easily convert your friends in to subscribers of your regular mailing list.
From a marketing standpoint, using social networking sites to build a responsive mailing list eliminates many of the major disadvantages associated with more traditional list building methods. Opening doors and allowing you to easily connect with people that are interested in what you have to say faster than ever before. Just keep in mind that building your list with social media is based on the process of gaining and nurturing relationships. As long as you focus on that you will have no problem building a responsive list of happy subscribers.
