Your subscribers are your asset. Not only does a list make it easier for you to contact your subscribers, it’s also a powerful tool to build a relationship with your subscribers so they can get to know, like and trust you.

Below you’ll find the transcript for the video above for better understanding. Do note, it is a slightly edited version.
Note: Please disregard the words “fast” and “quick” in my video. I mistakenly emphasized “fast ways” when in fact only one of the ways is actually a fast way (method #2), hence the reason why the title of this post is “3 Powerful Ways You Can Build A List of Subscribers, Starting Today”. Silly me.

We all know the importance of building a list because without a list, then you pretty much don’t have a real business.
Your list is an asset.
Generally, the more subscribers you have, the more money you’ll make because each subscriber is worth a certain amount.
You’ve been told that the money’s in the list and it sounds very cliche but it is true. If you really want a business that’s going to thrive in the long term then you’ve gotta look into building a list.
So here’s the first way on how you can build your list:
1) JV Partners
There’s always someone that’s selling some sort of digital product in your industry or market.
So for instance, if you’re in the golf niche then what you want to do is go to Google and search for blogs, ebooks, and forums that’s related to your niche so for the golf market, you’d go to Google and search for “golf ebooks” and then look for those who are experts in that of field.
Then you want to look for their contact details such as their email or use their contact form to then contact them and introduce yourself. Build relationships. That’s what it’s about.
2) Solo ads
This method is especially popular in the internet marketing and home business niche because those who build a list also sell advertising and promotional emails to other internet marketers and home business owners.
If you’re in MLM/network marketing, internet marketing, affiliate marketing or any type of niche that’s related inside the internet marketing and home business niche then this is a method you really want to look at
One website you can visit to purchase solo ads is to go to Safe Swaps.
In Safe Swaps, what you do is you look for solo ad sellers. Solo ad pricing varies from seller to seller, and depends how many clicks you want in your email.
Let’s say you want a hundred clicks. That could cost you about fifty dollars. So in return you’re actually getting traffic to what ever product you want.
Typically, solo ad purchases direct the clicks to a landing page or squeeze page so then they can build their list.
This method does cost a little bit of money but to get started, it’s a great investment. Assuming you’ve purchased quite a lot of clicks, you can literally build a list of thousands, just overnight.
3) Social Media
We all know how big social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter are, so why not utilize it?
The best way to approach it is to create your own Facebook page. What you want to do is to post regularly and consistently. What you want to post are things like links to interesting articles, resource links, things you find useful, videos, tips…all those work.
What happens in the end is those people who are fans of your page then tell their friends or like things such as your articles, resource links and videos. This becomes a viral marketing mechanism.
There’s a way to syndicate all the social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook and multiple Facebook pages that you may have.
It’s a tool called HootSuite. You can schedule your tweets and Facebook status updates using HootSuite.
You set when you want your posts to go out, and it automatically post your scheduled updates.
