Here’s a turn up for the books – it is for me, anyhow! How often do you hear terms like “the money is in the list” and, “if you are not list building you are leaving money on the table” and, “if you don’t have a list your an idiot!“. Well okay, I made the last one up, but you get my point, I’m sure.
Would you believe that there is now a line of thought that goes something like this…
List building is fine, but using a Facebook page is BETTER!
Did I write that right??
Did you read that right??
If you are shaking your head from side to side in an effort to dismiss this as UTTER NONSENSE, then here are some tell tale truths to back up the fact that using a Facebook page (linked to your blog, website – or not linked to anything at all) is actually BETTER than list building.
And after reading this you still don’t believe it – after all – its a “given” that list building is “the most powerful way to build an online business” – then don’t worry.
Go away and have a glass of something strong. Sit down for half an hour and relax. Put your feet up. And just consider this some more until the seed of reality is planted firmly within your mind.
Here’s the reasoning for the above statement…
1. Building and utilizing a Facebook page is free of charge regardless the size of your “fan” base
If you use Aweber, just for example, and you have over 10,000 subscribers on your list, then you will pay at least $149 per month for that service. Even the entry level Aweber account costs about $20 per month.
