I Would Like To Clarify That Using Paid Marketing Is A Faster Way Of List Building!
But, how about long term when you want to sit back and write about your experience in what ever field or niche you use because you enjoy blogging as much as I do ?
It is critical that you have a presence online for an effective list building strategy and the best way to do it is by blogging. Most successful companies have implemented some sort of blog on their websites. People love to read valuable information that is unique and can be replicated in their business or be able to apply in their own blog.
This is a part of what has fueled my websites/blogs online and bringing in organic traffic daily. Here are other list building tactics using SEO as your strategy.
Using SEO to build your list of subscribers to your newsletter, potential customers, or giving away a free report or free ebook to get their email information is a long term solution to having success with your blog.
This means your going to need an email marketing management system like Aweber.com in place where you can also keep in touch with them to build a relationship and keep them updated on new tools, strategies, latest changes or latest valuable news information to continue and build a loyal following that craves about your content on your blog.
When your using an email marketing management system you will be able to create opt-in forms that are static on your blog or you could use as an exit popup when they are trying to exit your blog to ask for their email in exchange for something valuable and preferably over-delivering in value.
Doing your research well will provide you with good related topic keywords to write about on your blog. Once you have your keywords use them in your blog post and share these blog posts with Bookmarking sites SocialAdr.com, Social Media ie, Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest etc…
SEO starts by using keyword tools like Google Keyword Planner Free Tool. Using keywords in your url, your blog content, the title, meta tags, h2 & h3 tags.
Use a feed burner connected to your blogs xml file to populate itself automatically and help you grow visitors to your blog. Google FeedBurner is free and works pretty well. See figure # 3 below…
This image below shows feeds automatically bringing in over eight thousand visitors a month. You can get free organic traffic just by publishing content on your blog once you have everything set up inside Feedburner’s settings.
List building should always be taken into consideration when setting up your website/blog, optimizing every post, optimizing your bookmarking efforts, your social media and all your marketing efforts for that matter.
One more area you can look at when using SEO to build your list is, paid marketing. Why ? If you can afford a few bucks to get the momentum going on your blog posts. Facebook affords you the opportunity to start with as little as $5.00 and allow you to test out ads inexpensively and scale up the winners. The traffic is instantly and real life too.
But, A Word of Wisdom! Get in while it is still possible because just like Google did after they knew they had majority of the market sewed up and they will increase the target marketing such as keyword pricing and their services.
If using WordPress platform for your website/blog then I recommend using Yoast Plugin or All In One SEO Pack, either of them is a good option and will help you do better SEO on your website blog posts and pages too.
Just click on Plugins in your back office as you see in the image below…
Tip: I personally have used both of these on my different websites and/or blogs I run and I like both of them. So, either one you choose will help you tremendously with not having to figure out how to do seo like to pros. Each Plugin shows you step by step how to optimize every part of your website/blog. It’s a neat and powerful plugin that simplifies SEO for you.
