For anyone who has an online income business the number one tool that we all need to succeed is a responsive email list. Generally when people think about building a list their main concern is to make sales either as an affiliate or to sell their own products. Very few of them actually realize that a responsive email list can have even more hidden values, as there are other ways of benefiting from a list apart from just selling products on to them.

Here are some other uses for that list that will make building it worthwhile.

1. Use it for Market Research.

All the subscribers on your list are interested in the products you are selling and the niche market you are involved in so this is a great place to do some market research. By sending out a survey every month or so you will be able to discover exactly what your target market is looking for with regards to type of product.

This is a great way to ensure that the projects that you are planning for the future contains products that are in demand in your market. It will save you from spending your time and money on a product only to learn that it is something that no one wants. You can avoid this kind of disaster by using your list to gauge the interest of your subscribers.

2.  Creating Products.

If you have an interest in creating products of your own then a good way to do this is by allowing people on your list to send you emails with questions or comments. You could simply take all the questions and comments that you have received over a period of time and turn them into a product which you can either choose to sell or give away to your emailing list.

Another use for it would be as a promotion for an affiliate program that you are marketing. Surveys and polls can be used the same way and if your subscriber list has questions chances are that there are many more people out there asking the same things. Just by answering these questions you will be able to create a product that can be valuable to a lot of people.

3.  Use Your List for Testing.

Why not use your list to test products? If you can create a product such as a video series or an e-book an idea would be to ask your list to test the product for you. Of course you will still want to promote and market this product after it has been tested by people on your list so it may be a good idea to limit the number of people allowed in the testing stage.

After you have received their feedback you will then be able to tweak and improve your product before actually marketing it. At the same time you can find out whether there are any complimentary products that might be useful to add extra value to your total package.

4.  How to Price the Product.

Generally this is one of the major problems that many people have; they don’t know how to set the price correctly. This is another place that your list can lend a hand. By giving away some copies of your product say  ten to twenty, before you release it you will be able to get some feedback from your list as far as the price is concerned.

Setting the price correctly of extremely important if your aim is to maximize the profit margin that you want. If you set the price too high you will not make many sales and if it is too low then you will make very little profit even though you may sell a huge amount.

By using your emailing list of subscribers not only will you get a better idea of the right price to charge but you will also get some good recommendations on how you can add value to your offer.

Use these added benefits that your emailing list can afford you and your online income business will prosper.

As an affiliate internet marketer, one of the biggest mistakes that you can make is not building an email list of your own. An email list of subscribers is the basis of any online based business as this is where the majority of your sales will come from.

Affiliate marketing is one of the easiest methods to use for anyone who wants to start an internet based home business as there is no need to find your own product. All you need to do is research the internet for a couple of good legitimate products, sign up as an affiliate and you are in business.

There are a few points that are extremely important to consider and in this article we will discuss some of them:

1.  Even as an affiliate it is worth your while to have a website of your own from which you can promote the products of your choice. This gives you far more freedom and you will be able to have multiple streams of income that you can promote and prosper from.

2.  Many affiliates will send traffic that they have generated directly to affiliate links rather than to a list. By doing this they believe that these visitors will make a purchase on the first contact. This is unfortunately very seldom the case.

Most visitors do not purchase anything on the first contact; in fact it has been proven that it normally can take anything up to seven contacts before the average buyer will make buy anything.

Very often your will find that they will require more information about the product and their method of getting this info is through more visits  to find  out if this product is something that they are really interested in and whether or not they really want it.

This is where an email list becomes invaluable. By building a list of your own subscribers you will be able to follow up on these prospects and get to know them and build a relationship with them so that they will know and trust you.

People generally are happier buying things from someone they feel they can trust and an internet based home business is no than any other kind, you still need to sell products to people you are not selling to computers and the human touch is still important.

3.  In order to build a list of subscribers the one thing that is necessary is to have an auto responder because in this way you can automate a large part of the process by setting up a series of follow-up emails that will be sent to anyone who opts in to your subscriber list.

A service like this will not only manage your list for you but it will also help you to build it. A good auto responder service will usually include a range of services such as spam checkers and tools that allow you to create web forms and opt in forms which will all increase your opt in rate.

So once you have your website and auto responder organized all you need do is find some legitimate affiliate products that you would like to sell and begin to market and promote them by sending visitors to a landing page where they can opt in to your subscriber list and from there to your own website and your chances of building a great online income business will increase tenfold.

Everybody has their own particular habits and behaviors and these are what drive us to do certain things in our own way. Some of these behaviors are moving us toward goals we may have in our home based businesses and others will work against us not only in business, but also in health and relationships.

Although most of these behaviors are ingrained in us so that for the most part we are not even aware of doing them, we are rational beings and can consciously learn to break away from behaviors that no longer serve us or are actually detrimental in getting to our goals. By following a daily habit breaking formula and replacing the bad habits with ones that can help us achieve our goals we can improve our lives exponentially.

Here are some ideas on how to break bad habits and replace them with better ones.

1.  The first step is to identify habits that are not serving you well. Become aware of any habits that are blocking your path to success, in your internet business and in your life in general.

2.  The best way to break these bad behaviors is to catch them whenever you find yourself falling into these old patterns. When this happens you need to attach a massive amount of pain to the situation and you can do this by thinking about the terrible difficulties that are being caused for you by following these habits.

3.  Find a habit that will serve you better in this situation and think of all the good things that will happen for you by following this better habit.

If you do not replace the old behavior with a new and better one, the old one will just keep on recurring. Without a replacement there will be an empty void and unless you fill it with something worthwhile it will just fill up with what you had before.

4. You will need to do this consistently and practice it on a daily basis for a minimum of one to two weeks before the old habit dies and the new one replaces it.

To give you an idea of how this works here is an example:

a.)  You need to identify the bad habit.  You procrastinate on important tasks that require your attention and then have to rush like mad under tremendous pressure to get the task done. Now if you don’t mind working like this then you would not consider it a bad habit.

2.  If you do think of it as a problem then you need to identify when this happens and what the results do to you. For example, you become extremely stressed, you don’t sleep properly and you make yourself and everyone around you utterly miserable.

So every time that this happens you need to attach pain to the situation. The way to break this habit is that every time you find yourself starting to procrastinate you need to really think about all the bad things that happen when you do this and make it as painful for yourself as possible.

3.  When you have succeeded in really creating a lot of pain you then need to substitute this pain with some pleasure and this is where you picture yourself, getting down the task at hand immediately, finishing it with time to spare and in an orderly fashion. Then think about how good you now feel, but really feel the emotion. Imagine the praise that you will be given. See the money rolling in for your home based business and how happy everyone around you is.

Do this regularly everyday on a consistent basis for at least to weeks. Then look back and check your results and I guarantee that there will be results. You will find yourself far less stressed, the people around you will be happier and your internet home based business will have improved.
