Your Top 10 List Building Tactics for 2011

Happy 2011!

The core thing that influences the success of every business is the viability of your customer list. While there is much debate over quality vs. quantity, I will always take that stand that you need BOTH. You want a large list (quantity) that contains your ideal customer (quality). (I’ll be sharing more about this on my free teleclass “5 Simple Keys to Attract Your Ideal Customer: How to Get More Leads, Build Your List and Grow Your Business FAST!”)

As we enter this new year, I asked you to share with me what are your biggest priorities in 2011. I specifically asked you to tell me what you most needed to focus on most when it comes to list building, lead generating and traffic building. This is what you said (listed in order)…

  1. Blogging
  2. Referrals
  3. Keywords
  4. On-page SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
  5. Video
  6. Joint Ventures
  7. Teleseminars
  8. Article Marketing
  9. Affiliate Marketing
  10. Facebook & Twitter [tied]

So what do you think? Do you agree with this list? What would you add or change?
