Email List Building Strategies – Creating Content

This section could , and will, be an expanded article on the subject of “Creating Sales Funnel Content”. I just felt it necessary to talk about this now. After all…It makes no sense to make a bad first impression on your new subscribers, by pitching them out of the chute…

My point being , if I can get you to understand how content and a good content marketing strategy builds trust and sales, then maybe I can help reduce the failure rate of new marketers going into business.

Therefore, Content must be the starting point  in any funnel you create.

Just remember that the whole exercise now, especially as the Marketing Arena Matures….is creating content that is informative, and actionable.

First of all, grabbing a prospects Email Information is at the very Top of your Funnel

Furthermore, If  you can provide Content that is actionable and educational…they won’t mind giving you that Contact info, when the time comes to ask for it.

If your content is especially relevant, giving up one’s Email contact info is not a problem.

Look at this like starting a personal relationship…You don’t ask for intimacy before you both have done the “Get to Know You Dance”

That is why I always lead with content…It starts that Trust building thing, that is so important in a Seller / Buyer relationship

As you can see, all of the List building strategies mentioned here, involve some form of Content or access to Content.

Your Subscribers are looking to you for answers….NOT PITCHES !

So give them what they want.

Content must always be used for information in different stages of the “Buyers Journey

email list building strategies

As you can see by the Image… Almost every type of Content is required for all stages of the Funnel ….

Email List Building Strategies – The Funnel

  • Top of Funnel (TOFU ) – Blog Posts will get people to your site (esp. if you Advertise on Social Media), where if your site is properly optimized, as in the 1st article, you should be able to get their E mail info with your Lead Magnet ( More Content)
  • Middle of Funnel ( MOFU ) – as your lead may need more information about your product , before they decide to purchase, this is where longer videos, perhaps showing different uses for your product…training, if you will. Case Studies are also useful at this point…but as you can see, we are talking about more content.
  • Bottom of Funnel ( BOFU ) – This is where you may decide to give out a trial version…one final pitch before you move onto another campaign.

For me I like to drive all the Traffic to a piece of content….I want to start the “Trust” building right away…so,from there I always go to a Lead Magnet …And Finally, the Journey Begins….

Every Piece of Content you write should someway or somehow attached to a product funnel…Creating Content for your list whether it be  an article, video or E mail message should have the goal of your campaign in mind ( Sale of a Product, Lead Generation etc.)

In Starting a Blog Post…You must find a problem …do extensive research , write an article, between 1000 –  2000 words and solve that problem….

Furthermore, you cannot do incredible amounts of research, for every post you write…but learn to “Curate content” …

Just Pick a topic / keyword and go to a site like “Buzz Sumo

Enter in your keywords…and Buzz Sumo will present the Top Shared Articles for that Keyword…That is your starting point….
