 An effective List Building System is one of the keys to jump-starting an effective Internet
marketing campaign. Compiling a list encompasses more than just filling it with as many names as
possible. In order for your campaign to be successful, you have to know how to maximize this lists'
potential to keep existing customers and clients and draw in new ones. You also have to know
how to target the right audience as well as balance between reaching this audience in a
professional manner and not becoming a spammer or other nuisance that can deter potentials
customers and clients.



The first step in compiling a list is to decide who your target audience should be. The more specific
the list, the better chance you have as maximizing its effectiveness. These lists can be built upon a
number of factors. One area with which you may start is demographics. If your target audience is
contingent upon demographic elements, you need to consider age, gender, race and/or ethnicity
and other such factors as you build your list. Demographics may or may not be a part of other
elements that affect the list you need such as professional affiliations, religious beliefs, interests
and hobbies.



Another very important factor to consider with a list building system is the means by which you
acquire the list. This is crucial especially when using email or text messaging campaigns because
going about this, the wrong way can put you in violation of the CAN SPAM Act and people take
spam very seriously! When building the list, it is best to use an opt-in list in which potential
customers or clients voluntarily submit their information and express interest in being contacted
about your product or service. It is also necessary to have an opt-out button for those who would
like to be taken off the list at any time.



If you do not have the means to request information from potential customers yourself, you may
decide to use a third-party service that specializes in this particular area of marketing. In effect,
you do not own the list that is built on your behalf; rather you rent it and never actually see the
names on the list. This does protect you from some liability, but you are still ultimately responsible
for the information your target audience receives in your messages. These services can also help
you with other aspects of your campaign beyond building the list for an extra fee contingent upon
the services you want.



Having an effective list building system can be a great asset to your upcoming promotional
campaign. If you are not sure how to create this list, do not be afraid to seek outside help. Your
campaign is a reflection of you and your business or organization, so you do not want to come off
as unprofessional in any way. This very important first step can be the start of building a loyal base
that keeps coming back to you for a very long time.
