Now that you have this great new information to give your target audience via a teleseminar, how are you going to get people to Opt In to the call? This can be an especially daunting task if your current subscriber list is under 1000 people, but it is a pursuit that every information marketer must conquer in order to achieve any amount of success. The first thing you will want to do is to create a plan or strategy of ways that you will get the word out about your call.
Here are 5 FREE ways that you can promote your teleseminar to build your list of subscribers who are eager to hear what you have to say.
Step #1: Use social media! Do not be afraid of places like Facebook and Twitter. Social media sites will be one of your greatest lead generation resources and your presence and regular contribution will generate followers who are looking for exactly the information that you have to give, for free!
Step #2: Write articles and list them with article distribution services. Spend some time brainstorming every possible question your target audience might have and then write 500-1000 word articles answering each and every one of them. Your resource box or bio is where you will give a little shout out for your teleseminar and a link to your Opt In page. Do not forget to include a free offer (like your teleseminar) in this space! A call to action will produce many more leads for you than just displaying your message.
Step #3: Read blogs and forums specific to your niche and comment on them. The more active you are in forums, discussion boards and posting comments about your area of expertise, the greater the amount of traffic that will funnel to your site. Always make sure that you are giving great information (not just promoting yourself) so that people will want to follow you! If you simply post information about you and links to your pitch pages, people will stop following you. However, if you are providing useful tips and comments, people will love you for your wisdom!
Step #4: Email your list and partner with other marketers who have big lists in your niche. Send regular emails to your subscribers. If you do not email your members, you are missing sales opportunities! If you want your subscribers to be happy, there is a fine line between emailing too much and not emailing enough. An email at least once a week is enough to give your list some good information and remind them to come to you for their niche-based needs.
**If your list is still on the small side, find someone with a large list to partner with, so they can email their list about your call! Tell them they can offer your teleseminar as a bonus for one of their product launches. Or better yet, have them sign up for your affiliate program and they can earn commissions if anyone from their list buys from you after the call. Always think win win for everyone involved.
Step #5: List your call with event listing services. There are many services where you can list the details of your call and include a link to your Opt In page. For people who are looking for a call to hop on that day, this can be very helpful and rewarding. List your call on as many of these services as possible if you want maximum exposure and a bigger list of subscribers.
We know of only one service where you can actually have two savvy mompreneurs send out details about your teleseminar for free, twice a day (check resource box). However, the simple listing directories work well too. Remember, the more places you list your call, the more callers will likely be on the line for your teleseminar and the more sales you can potentially make.
Do not underestimate the power of adding your call to one of these free listing services as they are designed to make it easier for you to get the word out about your teleseminar, so you can build your list and make lots of money. Now, go get started with the teleseminar promotion action plan listed above and spread the news about your very important call. Your listeners are waiting for you!
