035 STBS: Build Your Email List Using Value and SEO

Download the Video Here!

In this video I show how I use Market Samurai to find keywords in order to create blog posts that take advantage of low-competition and high-traffic keywords.  Basically, it will allow you to develop constant contacts that you can communicate with on a regular basis.

I wanted to make a video podcast to show you something that I think is VERY important if you want jump-start your email list building efforts (I recomment using Aweber for this).  One of the most important aspects in Internet Marketing (and marketing in general) is collecting and building an email list. This is one of the best ways to keep in touch with your audience, build a community, or even sell products if you wish.

Now, the two most difficult aspects about growing an email opt-in list is creating something of value that you can offer others in return for their email address and getting traffic to your site.  In regards to the former, you truly need to have something to offer that is going to improve the lives or situation of the individual that is giving you their email address and not just a ploy.

Traffic, on the other hand, is a bit trickier, but as you'll see in the video there are some things that you can do to get noticed on the search engines just by creating a good blog post and maybe write some articles on other sites to link back to that blog post.  By finding low-competition and well sought after keywords, you can really start to generate traffic to a page that helps your visitors to get on your list and get to know you in a more intimate way.

      Hi Gregory,

      No problem! Thanks for the comment! Market Samurai is amazing, but most people focus on the niche site stuff. It works great for that but as you can see in the vid, I've seen huge gains in using it just to write better blog post content.

      have a great one. =)
