Another Reason to Monitor Mailing Lists

There’s another purpose to clicking every one of those emails, every single day.  Remember, it should only take you 20 minutes to do the 50 emails. They’re in a separate email account, which you’re going to open only once day. You’re not going to open it every 10 minutes like you might do with your smart phone.

This is going to be something you only do once a day.  But every single time that somebody sends you an offer to get on somebody else’s list, you’re going to take up the offer.  After a month you might be on 100 lists instead of 50 lists.

Here’s what you’ll do after 30 days – and you’ll do this by hand.  Sometimes people want to automate things.  Sometimes it’s boring to hand mail 100 emails.  I know, I’ve done it before.  Sometimes it’s boring.  But the return on investment is incredible.  If you try to do something sneaky like BCC 100 people, people know it.  Do you know it when somebody BCC’s you?  You do, right?  You know it? I know it.  They know it.  If they see that, it’s not a personal email anymore. You think it is, and you’re trying to pull off as a personal email, but it’s not a personal email, you know it, and they know it.

You’re going to do this by hand.

Now, you can hire someone to do this for you, but hire someone you trust.  Don’t go over to a freelancing website and hire somebody you don’t know to do this as their first project for you.  If they don’t do it right, you’ve lost all of the goodwill and energy and effort that you’ve put into this project for the last 30 days.

This is going to take a good bit of time.  And actually, I don’t recommend you outsource it.  Do it yourself.  There’s plenty of other routine things that you can do in your business.  But getting an intimate gut feeling for the kinds of people who are in your niche that you can build a relationship with and make a lot of money on these relationships – possibly for the rest of your life, but certainly as long as you run your business – that’s something you want to do.

This is something that you want to be…

  • A) set up right, not to say that if you outsource it, it won’t be done right.  But if you hire somebody brand new you don’t know if it will be done right.
  • B) there is a value in just having a feeling for each one of these people’s lists, and you can’t buy a feeling.  You can’t pay

Becky $300 to give you a feeling.  What you have to do is, you have to go out there and get that feeling yourself.

By taking 20 minutes every single day and just reading everybody’s email.  That’s the only way you’ll find out… is Tom a good guy?  Is Becky a good gal? Is Mark a good guy? Is Johnny a good guy?  Is Steven a good guy?  That’s the only way that you’ll find out.
