The Flu and List building Go Hand In Hand!
Copyright © 2004-2005 Melvin Perry
Working On Your Own

What does the flu have to do with building your list?

Well a lot!

A flu, just like any other virus is able to spread itself to
anyone it comes in contact with.

And when we are building are email lists, we want this same
type of viral effect to take place. This viral effect is known as
viral marketing.

Viral Marketing is allowing people to giveaway and use your
free product or service in order to spread your message
quickly over the internet. I also call this form of marketing
wild fire marketing because as soon as it starts, it will spread
your marketing all over the internet like a wild forest fire.
When this happens, it will be difficult to stop it.

The idea behind viral marketing is that you include your ad
with a freebie people giveaway or use. The ad will be an
advertisement of your ezine or newsletter. Below are ten high
impact viral marketing strategies:

1. Allow people to use any of your freebies as free bonuses
for products or services they sell. Include your ad on all
your freebies. A lot of product owners are willing to do this.

2. Allow people to reprint your articles on their web site, in
their e-zine, newsletter, magazine or ebooks. Include your
resource box and the option for article reprints at the
bottom of each article.

3. Allow people to add their link to your free web site
directory. Just require that they return a link back to your
web site, advertising your directory.

4. Allow people to sign up for a free web site on your server.
Since you are giving away the space, require them to
  include your banner ad at the top of the site.

5. Allow people to use your online discussion board for their
own web site. Some people don't have one. Just include
your banner ad at the top of the board.

6. Allow people to provide your free online service to their web
site, visitors, or e-zine subscribers. They could be free
e-mail, e-mail consulting, search engine submissions, etc.
This is how hotmail grew 12 million subscribers in 1.5 years.

7. Allow people to give away your free software. Just include
your business advertisement inside the software program.

8. Allow people to give away your free web design graphics,
fonts, templates, etc. Just include your ad on them or
require people to link directly to your web site.

9. Allow people to place an advertisement in your free ebook
if, in exchange, they give away the ebook to their web
  visitors or e-zine subscribers.

10. Allow people to give away your free ebook to their visitors.
Then, their visitors will also give it away. This will just
continue to spread your ad all over the internet.

If you combine some of these viral marketing tactics with
your list building efforts, you will explode your list in no time.

Maybe you could become the next hotmail?!

Well even if you don't, you will still build a monsterous
sized list quickly.

Here is a free resource that will help you build a gigantic list
within 90 days. If you are interested in this resource, then

==> Tips & Tricks

In his article, "Ten Tips For Better Writing", Tim North offers
up some good advice on Business writing. His premise that
information overload has made us quick to react to first
impressions of what we read is a valid one. Read the tips at:
Marketing is not about selling. It's about meeting the wants
and needs of your customers. If you want your ezine to be a
revenue generator, keep it interesting and focused on your
reader, not on your business or your product. YOU know the
difference between an email that's just selling something and
an email that helps you manage your business or live your life.
Keep this in mind and the profits will come.
Here's a good idea for backing up those important data files
on your hard disk. Instead of copying them to CD's or the
more antiquated floppy disks, send them to a second server.
Or, use FTP to transfer copies of your data files to the host
account for your web site. Just be careful not to exceed the
storage allowance for your web site. Learn more at:
If you need another domain name, you can save some money
by NOT registering your domain name through your web host.
Contact a discount registrar and pay under $10 per year to
register or re-register your site's name. Your web host may
charge $40 or more per year. Need help? Check out:
