Have you considered using social media to build an email list?

If you don’t have a list of passionate prospect, then don’t even think of building a long time, profitable online business.

When doing business online, it’s important to build a list of subscribers to market your product or services to.

There’re various ways to build a list. You can build a list through pure search engine optimization, Facebook marketing, solo ads, et al! All these cost some amount of money and some; just require effort from your part.

If you’re short of budget, here’re a few tips to build an email list through social media for almost…F.R.E.E.

Automatically Tweet Your Link through Your Auto Responder

Here’s what I mean:

If you use an email service like Getresponse or Aweber, you’ve the option to automatically tweet or like a newsletter once the email broadcast is sent. All you just have to do is to click the ‘’syndicate twitter update’’ box.

Embrace your hat of social bookmarking.

If you don’t have the WordPress sociable plugin, it’s the time you install it on your WordPress blog.

Create a way for readers to share your post with their friends or colleagues through social bookmarking sites (like StumbleUpon, Digg, Twitter, Facebook, and Delicious).

Pro tip: this plugin is a nice tool to drive free traffic to your site (and build an email list).

Create a Ning network

Have you heard about Ning?

It’s a platform that allows people to join and create their own social networks online.

It’s a great tool to connect and establish an expertise in front of your target prospect.

With Ning, anyone can create a network (around a specific area of interest) for free.

Create a Compelling Profile

Yeah… create an up-to-date profile. That’s what I mean.

Use your real name, real picture, real information, correct location, and up-to-date autobiography.

Why must you do all these?

To build trust a rapport with your audience. That’s the only way to entice people into joining your email list

Be helpful

The most effective way to build a responsive list using social media is to give and spend exorbitant amounts of time helping people. Offer good suggestions and tips.

Create and spark up meaningful conversations. People will get to know you this way

Your turn!

I built a list of 450 people using the above tips. If I could achieve that, why can’t you?

Do you’ve any tips or suggestions to add to the ones above?

Let me know your reply in the comments section.
