- … and invite into the innermost workings of their business ventures
From the desk of Rebecca Matter, AWAI Co-Managing Partner
My passion is helping writers make a lot of money.
And usually, I write to you about improving your writing skills. How to create better headlines, build better leads, tighten up your bullets … that kind of thing.
Today I want to draw your attention to a skill set that builds on your existing copywriting skills — but few copywriters study it.
Well, because — strictly speaking — this isn’t writing.
Yet the writers I know who are masters of this specific skill are never short of clients … or money.
They live large, working with a waiting list of clients, and dictating their own terms.
They get away with collecting outrageous up-front fees and setting “whenever I want” deadlines … because they can do what others can’t.
They can build “the list.”
That gives them the right — and the might — to run the show.
The List Is The Key
What is “The List”?
“The List” is the term given to all the names and contact details of the subscribers and customers of a business.
These are the people who get your newsletters, special offers, and sales messages.
Each new name is a new opportunity for a sale — and the lifetime profits of a repeat customer. That’s why so many marketers say, “The money is in the list!” — they know it’s one of their most critical assets.
As master marketer MaryEllen Tribby puts it, “If you’re not building a list, then you’re not running a business …”
In today’s marketing world, the size and health of a company’s list — the master file of their customers and prospects — can make or break a business.
To put it simply, a growing list means the company’s opportunities for sales are expanding … something to put a smile on any CEO’s face.
But a shrinking list … or one that’s stubbornly refusing to grow … means problems on the horizon.
So most firms watch their list numbers very, very carefully.
They know the lifetime value of each new name — sometimes down to the penny. That’s the limit of their future profitability unless they can grow their list.
No wonder list building is a front-and-center issue for so many company leaders!
It keeps them up at night. Weighs on their minds all day.
They are constantly looking for new ways to add names and build their bottom line.
And if you can help them — really help them — with building their list, then you have a client for life …
A client who is only too happy to pay you whatever it takes to keep the new names coming in every day.
They will pay for your expert insights … plus all the copy projects necessary to support your recommendations (written by you at premium prices, of course!).
And when a new project or proposal is being considered, you’ll be the first person they call.
It’s a win-win for both sides … the better your client does, the more you both make.
So all you need to do is learn to get those names flowing in — and have I ever got you covered!
Meet Brian T. Edmondson —
Your Personal Guide To List-Building Success
I always look for the top experts to work with AWAI members … and there are a lot of people out there who claim to be list-building geniuses.
But no one can hold a candle to Brian T. Edmondson.
Brian is a self-taught expert in business-building systems and growing list sizes.
He’s worked with some of the biggest names in our industry as a consultant, helping build lists for companies like Early to Rise,Agora Publishing, and Tellman Knudson’s Overcome Everything, Inc. Along the way, he’s masterminded sales campaigns that have brought in millions of dollars.
Not too shabby … especially when you consider Brian started at zero back in 2001.
He was dead broke after losing his job on Wall Street, working as a retail cashier to make ends meet.
And then he took a chance on the Internet …
To make a long story short, it worked out. Big time.
But it was no accident and no lucky break.
Brian worked hard to uncover a system for attracting traffic to his websites and getting that traffic to share their contact details. This let him quickly build lists of prospective buyers for his products.
He was able to repeat his success over and over again … which had major marketers fighting to hire him.
But what Brian likes best — and the reason I reached out to him — is teaching others to use his systems in their own lives.
Not Just A Genius — I’ve Found You A Teacher
“Brian has the most clear, unintimidating style of teaching I've ever encountered, and I've encountered a lot of so-called Internet marketing gurus … If you take Brian's easy-to-follow advice, you will most definitely increase your site's traffic and sales exponentially.”
— A. Goldfarb
Chevy Chase, MD
One of the things I immediately liked about Brian is how very different he is from your stereotypical online traffic and list-building “guru.”
He doesn’t beat you over the head with his achievements — even though they are truly impressive. You won’t see him being flashy or arrogant.
Instead, Brian has a humble, straightforward approach to what he does.
He speaks in plain English, teaching advanced list-building concepts in a way that feels like having a regular conversation over dinner with a friend.
As a result, you really learn when you listen to him. He makes it all sound so simple … and even shows you how to make list building easy.
And isn’t that the mark of a true master instructor? To make the biggest business challenges seem like child’s play?
I certainly think so. That’s why I knew no one but Brian would do as a list-building teacher for you.
And I can’t tell you how happy I am that he agreed to create a program just for AWAI members …
