f_2money2.jpgIn the world of Internet Marketing, the subscriber / email list is considered the most important part of the business and even more important than the sales itself. As a result, marketers dedicate a large amount of time and money to collect a “list” of highly targeted subscribers.

Building a highly targeted subscriber list is probably the most profitable thing you can do on the internet. A highly targeted list of email subscriber allows the owner to market either his products and service or other people’s products with a fairly high guarantee of success. However, with the proliferation of spam, consumers are very careful about giving out their email addresses.

The best way to get people on to subscribe to your list in the first place is to build a squeeze page (also called a landing page). A squeeze page is a simple page that had a headline, some text and allows visitors to register their name and email address in the field provided. Squeeze page also could be used as a tool to ease consumer concerns, experienced online businesses create “Squeeze Pages” that detail what the subscriber will be receiving and the businesses privacy standards.

A Squeeze page is not purely a web page that provides a capture form. A squeeze page’s main purpose is to generate leads where the major purpose of the page or site captures a name and email address. Squeeze page is created to draw the focus and attention of the visitor to applying action to one thing, opt in to your list for more information. As a general rule, Internet Marketers try to keep the content on their Squeeze Pages to a minimum. Usually no links to other pages as additional information could distract the user or cause them to navigate away to a different website.

The headline in your squeeze page is the most important part for it is the first contact point with your website’s visitors. This is where you must captivate them with an attention grabbing headline which will compel them to continue reading your text. Your headline must be clear of what you are presenting and your copy must connect with your visitors on an emotional level.

A successful squeeze pages have been known to have conversion rates of 30-60% and some even higher. The conversion rates mentioned here are the percentages of visitors that choose to opt-in to a mailing list by filling in the form fields available.

Squeeze page is often used in conjunction with an email autoresponder to begin delivering information as soon as the visitor confirms their email address. The autoresponder may be utilized to send a series of follow up emails or to provide an immediate download link to get information.

Promising information upon completion of confirming their email address has proven to be an effective method of increasing opt-ins using Squeeze Pages. So for example, if your mailing list targets basketball you can offer basketball ebook / manual for free. Once your subscribers joined your email list, you need to mail responsibly otherwise you will lose subscribers as they opt out of your mailing list when you send irrelevant contents.

Enjoy and Profits!
