List Building Ideas for 2017

The money is in the list. If I got a dollar every time I heard or read that phrase, I’ll be well… I’ll have lots of dollars. It’s been said a thousand times and it’ll be spoken of even more.

Because that’s the simple truth. You’re wasting money if you don’t have an email list.

This year, one of major internet marketing goals is to create a brand new list of 50,000 subscribers from scratch. I’ll be doing it from scratch so I can show my network marketing team how to do it from start to finish.

Here are three ideas that I’ve been playing around with in my head.

  1. Contest
  2. Podcasting
  3. Free membership site on network marketing

The details.


I’ve been wanting to try this out for a very long time but can’t find a foolproof win-win situation that’ll work for the network marketing audience. After much deliberation with myself (hundreds of hours of sleepless nights and talking to myself in the mirror) I figured that the best way to do this is by creating a tiered system that will reward people for their efforts.

I can’t give out much detail for obvious reasons but here’s a clue – the more you refer the closer you get to winning.

I like the “referral” idea as it fits perfectly in the network marketing world.


I always wanted to be a talk show host so why not be one? The beauty of podcasting is that it touches the tech-savvy network marketing people who’d love to listen to stuff while driving, working out, etc.

Plus I get to broadcast my nice voice to the world.

Free membership site

Last but not least – creating a membership site. All I need for this is WordPress and WishList Member and I’m all set. The hard part is creating content that will be of use to my network marketing prospects but then with a little extra effort, I think I’ll be able to pull this off too.

The overall idea is to provide quality content and fun to as many people as possible in exchange of their email address.

What about you? What list building ideas do you have for 2017?
