What is so important about growing your list? Your list is the secret to website marketing profits.

People will come to your website. They may like your content, but if they don't bookmark your site, you probably won't see them again. You have lost an opportunity to market to them.

If you convince them to opt-in to your list, you will have the chance to send them more of your great content. More importantly, you will be able to send them money making offers. People don't often buy the first time they see one of your offers. They don't trust you yet. It takes time and repetitions. They only way to do this is by drip-marketing to them.

Make sure that your opt-in or sign up form is prominently displayed close to the top of your page so that it can't be missed. Entice them to sign up by describing the free goodies you are offering. You should only ask for the first name and their email address. When they sign up, send them immediately to your "thank you" page. Deliver the goods you promised to them on that page. By the way, you can put a couple of other offers there on the "thank you" page, too. Sometimes, when people are really in the buying or joining mood, they will investigate your other offers.

Create a squeeze page. Spend some time on this page to get it right. A squeeze page, sometimes called a fly-catcher page, is a page designed to convince them to opt-in to your list. It will have a catchy title, a bullet pointed list of about 5 to 7 different benefits to joining and, of course, the opt-in form. Make sure they see the opt-in form. Put your opt-in form in a Johnson box with highlighted borders and draw arrows to it if you must. You have to tell people what you want them to do. Don't assume that they know.

Put an auto starting video on your squeeze page. Make sure that its duration is short. The video can go over the benefits of joining, but don't overdo it. Using video or at least, audio on your squeeze page will increase your success rate by about three times.
