Building a relationship with the people on your list is just one way to create online revenue, but it is the best way to connect with those who turn to you for information. There are a variety of ways to do this successfully.
You may want to start a newsletter. This can be plain or fancy, but set it up to go out monthly to your prospects and subscribers. This needs to be a free newsletter so that you can build your list and stay in touch with them.
When people subscribe to your monthly newsletter they are pretty much telling you to contact them at least twelve times over the next year. In each newsletter you can promote what you are doing or tell them about an affiliate offer.
Another way to connect with your list is to give regular teleseminars on your niche topic. These will also be free, because you are still gaining credibility and visibility with your target audience. At the beginning and end of each call, share a little about the paid products and courses you have to offer, as well as those of affiliates. This will let people know that you are in business, and not just providing free services.
I like to share everything I know with my list. This has made them like and trust me over time and want to do business with me. We are all online for the long haul, not just to make money quickly this month, so take the time to build a lasting relationship with the people who entrust you to help them navigate the waters of the Internet.
