    Hello BHW,

    Today I'd like to share with you some tips about building and
    managing your customer list. Remember: if you have a wbsit
    with a customer list, you MUST emale your customers to raise
    your income. The most common way to do it is by writing
    newsletters. Newsletters can be a pain to write, but guarantee a
    very good return on investment. Thanks to my experience, I put
    together four simple MUST FOLLOW rules that can turn a poor
    newsletter marketing attempt into a great success. Enjoy!

    1: Broadcast Monthly - As a rule I send out at least one message
    per month just to keep communication lines open. You don't
    want to constantly barrage your customers with sales pitches every
    time you communicate with them. So in my monthly broadcasts
    I usually inform my customers about any new resources that have
    become available at my site. I often upload free articles that I
    source from copyright-free places or wbsits that I partner with.
    If you can, try and create unique resources of real value - writing
    articles yourself is an option if you have knowledge about the
    industry your business operates in. I inform my customers about
    what's new and end with a small reminder about our services - 10%
    sales pitch, 90% good content.

    2: Offer Discounts - I have a list of people that have yet to
    become customers, my prospects list. For this list I have an
    automatic series of responses sent out, first starting weekly,
    then turning monthly that offers them enticements to join. Once
    a prospect has been subscribed to my list for a long time I have
    an automatic emale go out offering them a discount to try my
    business out. I even cut the price to the point where I don't
    make a profit just to get the prospect to try the service. I
    know if they like it they will use it again so often the act of
    converting them into a customer is the final roadblock that a
    discount offer removes.

    3: Encourage Referrals - One of my favorite techniques is to
    offer incentives for my present customers to bring in their
    family and friends. The easiest customers to acquire are from
    current customers recommending your business. Word of mouth is
    always the best marketing method so why not encourage it as much
    as you can? Each current customer is potentially the best
    salesperson you could ever find and sometimes all it takes is an
    offer, like a credit for services/discount voucher or even just
    an emale suggesting they tell friends about your business. Happy
    customers are happy to spread the word, they just sometimes need
    a little nudge to do it.

    4: Market Research - Are you considering launching a new product?
    Maybe you want to know what your clients think of your customer
    service? How about gathering statistics about your customer
    demographics to help with future marketing efforts? All these
    questions can be answered by sending a survey to your list.
    Perhaps you can offer incentives to fill out a survey such as
    discount vouchers, two-for-one deals or free samples. However
    you do it, your current list is a fantastic store of minable
    data just waiting to be accessed. Services like SurveyMonkeydotcom
    give you the tools to create online surveys easily, which can be
    linked from or included in one of your broadcast emales to your

    If you still don't have a customer list, here is a quick
    step-by-step guide to build one fast:

    1: Create a page on your wbsit to collect visitors'
    information, such as their name and emale address. Tell them
    that if they signup for your newsletter you'll give them a free
    sample of your product, or some other deal.

    2: Buy a Revisitors targeted traffic campaign and redirect the
    traffic to the page you built to collect visitors' information.

    3: That's it. People will signup for your newsletter and will
    receive emales from you. Send them monthly newsletters following
    the four rules above and they will, sooner or later, buy your
