When setting up a viral list builder there are several different ways and one of them is using free ebboks Edit this text Ebooks are still very potent if they are done right, particularly in markets outside of Internet marketing online.  Even though it appears that free ebooks seem to have taken to warming the bench with new techniques available today.  

Create a free ebook with your subscriber form on each page with valuable content. Encourage people to pass it on to their friends. Nothing new with that…

But, to make this more powerful, here is another idea. Create a product or short report and sell it for a very low price . Then find other businesses in your niche and sell them the resell rights for cheap.

When people open your ebook, they will have to register it first by filling in their name and email. You kindly explain to them that this way , they will get free updates and other special news reserved for your Customers only of course.

By doing this , anybody who buys your book rights will sell it, and before accessing the product, all of those customers will have to register, which means opt-in paying customers to add to your list.

Another viral idea is contests or giveaways. This can work in any market as well .

Your involvement in the product creation process allows you to create your own free giveaways where you give away things (ebooks, cd’s, reports, etc..) of value to your niche market. You can bring in other businesses like yours (your competitors) to also give away your products for free.

Then everybody involved promotes it to their list and on their site. The people go to the giveaway site and have to register before they download any of the freebies.

This stuff isn’t brain surgery, and these ideas should definitely get you going with your list building efforts.

At this point you want to link to your squeeze page everywhere possible.  In forums, on blogs, etc…

Articles that you write for your ezine can be used as tools for promotion.

List those articles in all of the article directories with your resource box linking back to your squeeze page.

Also, you can create HTML pages out of those articles and list them in the search engines as well.

The fact that just running an ezine means you will have content that you can give away for free to promote your ezine makes it a bit easier to get new subscribers!

Being able to give away something for free to promote your ezine makes it a lot easier to get new subscribers.  Running your own ezine is the only way to get this advantage.
