Use the internet to help build your list
When it comes to building your list, the internet is amazing.
One of the best tools is PayPal. You know eBay owns PayPal, so you have millions of sellers on eBay, you have tens of thousands of powerful sellers that have thousands and thousands of transactions on eBay, and all of those transactions are done through PayPal, so you can look for a company that sells, I say, i don’t know ebay mattress covers cheap in the united states and you can look at their ebay reviews and they might be a purple star and you can see they have 60,000 transactions and they’ve been on ebay since the early 1990s.
You’ll know that those 60,000 transactions, a large majority or even more, are in PayPal because PayPal is the shopping cart for those eBay transactions, and you know that owner of that eBay store can go into their PayPal account and to download an Excel file with every single customer’s name, email address, mailing address, because if they’re shipping these mattress covers to their customers, they have all that data already entered.
So you can contact someone on eBay or through PayPal and even shop in PayPal stores and look for huge lists of specific products and services and contact them to do joint ventures.
You can approach them and ask them to let you interview them about their mattress cover business. You can do as an Ask campaign. Get these big name guys to do an Ask campaign. So for example the way I did it, you go to AskMichaelSenoff now because I’m the expert, I’m going to my barter expert next month. I created an Ask campaign called AskDonahueSilves and it’s already set up and he owns about nine of the high-tech brokers that are retail barter exchanges.
He’s got a list that he’s mailing to, and I set up an email and set up this whole inquiry campaign, and I say, “Donahue, I’m going to help you promote your barter retail membership.” We’ve already done the interview and he’s going to mail out to his list and they’re going to come and submit their question, if you’ve had one chance to ask barter expert Donahue Silves anything about how to save money by bartering, enter your question now. They’ll enter their question, that name comes through my Ask campaign and goes into my AWeb or autoresponder, so I’ve created an autoresponder account just for him. I can capture those names and they’re in my autoresponder service so I have control over it and I have an agreement with him that I can use those names to help his existing barter customers learn more about the business and by providing them my audio interviews.
So he will send to his list that this list or part of this list will become my list. So it’s a joint venture. I help him out by creating a great audio interview to promote his barter service and in trade for that I get some of the names that will hopefully become my future clients which I think should work out.
So these are some of the ways anyone can build their list. But building it yourself might be slow, but if you think smart and have a good strategy and use joint ventures, you can definitely shorten the process.
