How hard is it to build your list and get other professionals in your “funnel”?

One of the most frustrating things when you’re a professional is to get other professionals and people you meet to sign up for your stuff!

List building can be one of the toughest and most arduous tasks in business building.

Let’s say you’re at a function and you meet some great prospects. You know that they are perfect candidates for your stuff, even if it’s not right now, but when they are ready you want them to think of you first. Right!

You also know that unless they are hearing from you on a regular basis then you’re not “positioning” yourself how you could or even should. And to charge that premium rate that you deserve, you need to be in that “prime position”! Do I hear an “Amen” to that?

How many times have we heard that the money is in the “list” so we design our website to do that, have all the name capture stuff, the right double-opt in form protocols. Have to abide by the Spam rules and regulations right?

That’s great for your online visitors but what if you’re out networking?

Having the right opt in forms, auto-responders and email newsletter is a must for every serious professional and their website but how do you get these networking contacts into the same email list building stuff when you’re out and about? How do you overcome this issue?

I have tried it all when I’m at a function or even meetings like BNI (Business Network International) and the like.

You hand them your business card and say something like “Oh, go to my site and click on the big blue button and I’ll send you my Free Report.” And they never do!

So then you try signing them up yourself and say “I’ll send you my Free Report and all you need to do is to click on the confirmation email you’ll get”. And they never do!

Yes, you can add them into ACT or Outlook and even create contact groups but you’d still prefer them in that one list where you can manage them easily without it becoming a huge CRM (Client Relationship Management) drama.

What about an email marketing system designed from the ground up with the professional in mind! Awesome!

Solution! – Smart Email Marketing! Why is it awesome?

Because you can over ride the double opt in process is why! Do I recommend that for your online stuff? Absolutely not, you’d have to have rocks in your head.

BUT IMAGINE THIS! You can now say “Look, I have some info that will address that exact issue plus I have some other stuff coming out soon which I really don’t want you to miss out on. I’ll get that to you this afternoon. Is that soon enough?” and you grab their business card … or everyone in the group’s business cards!

You get back to your office, open up your Smart Email System and enter all their details and hit “send” and the auto-responder sequence begins, plus now they’re automatically in your newsletter list too. But this is where it gets even sexier – no other email marketing software will let you “log an event” so you can actually record that you met them in person and they said yes to your stuff and you did a manual entry.

Talk about guard your butt in these contentious times. It really doesn’t get any better than this. Here’s a short list of just some of the other sexy features:

  • Completely browser based (You manage it from wherever you are)
  • No per email fees
  • No list size limits or fees

  1. Hi Peter,

    This looks like the answer to the problem I am facing, getting people on my list without having to jump through hoops. I meet many people and collect their business card religiously but can’t use their email address in a cost effective way. Well done.

  2. It’s an absolutely brilliant software program James. If this had been available when I started out I would have 10’s of thousands of contacts by now. Obviously the sooner you switch over the better.

    Just while i think of it, setting up the forms section is so much easier than any other software I’ve used, and I’ve seen them all. Everything to do with the web form set up, the double opt in and all that is done in the forms section, it’s so much more intuitive. and to add new contacts is so easy.

    So, the first step for you is to get in and have a look around. I’ll set up a test drive account and email you the log in details direct, when you’re ready let’s have a call so i can talk you through it.

    Regards, Peter
