are kind of funny because more often than not, YOU become the list. I'll explain that in a moment and how to avoid it but first, what is a list builder? Well, it's an opt-in program in which you agree that those above you in the list, can email you an advert and you can in turn, email those below you an advert.
The problem with most list builder is the fact you become the list. What happens is, you are receiving the adverts but you don't have anyone to send the adverts to because there is no one below you.
Another problem with list builder programs is that those above you, may be promoting the same thing you are promoting. So even if you do have people below you, those above you are sending them the same thing you are promoting. Kind of insane actually.
Do keep in mind that not all list builders work the same way. For example, a list builder might have a forced matrix, such as a 2x10. Depending on where you fall in that matrix, may be dependent upon how many you can email. So if you land way down the matrix in someones list builder organization, you may never ever get any spillover and therefore never ever have anyone to email your advert to.....unless you go out there and promote the list builder....and if you are that far down....guess what? That's right....all those people above you are going to be emailing those below you too, an advert, maybe the same thing you are promoting.
Therefore, if you are bound and determined to use list builders, this is what you should do if at all possible....
Keep an eye out for new list builders. Some times an admin of a program will say they are going to launch a new list builder. Maybe they will tell you it's going to be a 2x20 forced matrix. Maybe they even give you an approximate date it will launch. What you want to do is stay at your computer and not leave it.
As soon as you get the email that it is launched and ready to sign up FLY LIKE THE WIND..GO GO GO as FAST as you can! As crazy as that sounds, that is how to win with using list builders. Because that is going to put you as close to the top as you can possibly get. What does that mean? It means you'll not have a ton of people above you emailing the ton of people below you, your offers. Keep in mind, you may still end up with people on lower levels that are emailing those people on lower levels, the same offer as yours. However, you still will stand a far greater ratio in your favor than if you also had a ton of people above you.
As a norm, you don't get a ton of emails with list builders. Usually they state this on the list builder site. On average it is limited to no more than 9 emails a day from those members above you.
List Builder programs have never been my fav. I've owned safe lists and I have owned list builders too. Any way you look at them, one thing is for sure. They are another simple option to possibly gaining referrals and most everything is worth a shot.
