Relationship Dynamics

New week, new post!

I’m really excited today to tell you what I have been learning this week to help me move forward in my journey to build an Internet Marketing business.

It has been a very hot, sunny week here in Vancouver and I am guilty of spending a lot of my time on the balcony during meal time staying much too long over my coffee or tea reading a novel.

You see, in the winter we get a lot of rain. I mean, a lot of rain. Along with this rain, it is very dark and gloomy all day long. I feel as though I am living in a cave or as if it is perpetually nightfall.

A couple of years ago we had 72 consecutive days of rain. A record. Yes, you read that right over 2 months without ever seeing the sun or getting even a glimpse of blue sky. It was very depressing. So, you’ll understand that when the sun shines I want to take full advantage of it and I do.

At the same time, I am aware that to move forward on this journey of mine I must put in the time to learn and put into practice every little bit of knowledge I acquire.

 List Nurturing

I last wrote about building a list by offering  a free giveaway product. Now, what do I do with it?

The most important thing for me to do is to stay in touch with the people who were interested enough to opt in by asking me to send them my freebie.

This will let them know that I care about them as people, that they are not just a list of faceless robots out there who are willing to buy from me.

I’ll send them an email with some additional information related to the  free giveaway product they may be interested in. Then I might  send them an email with a link to an affiliate offer explaining why I think they may find it useful.

I’ll follow by asking them how they liked the free giveaway product, what they liked best, what else they may want to know on this topic.

I’ll send them notification of my new blog posts and ask them if they have suggestions for topics they would like to read about in later posts .

I’ll ask them about who they are: their gender, nationality, age group, marital status, income range, hobbies and interests, what are their dreams, goals and what are they trying to achieve in their lives.

I’ll send them a short multiple choice survey  to find out what aspect of internet marketing they need or want most to find out about so I can provide them with what interests them rather than what I think they want.

Too often we make assumptions about others but until we actually ask these questions we really have no clue.

We may think we are attracting young, hip, males under 30 years of age when in fact our list consists mainly of individuals over 40 who are fed up of working for a boss, want to work from home to be close to their families or just want to make an extra $1000 – $2000 a month to fund their hobbies.

Knowing who is on  my list will help me establish a trusting relationship with the people behind the names. People don’t just buy products. They buy from those they know, like and trust.

Enjoy your life!
