Relationship Building

Personal Level

Put ourselves in a relationship with our family, colleagues and friends. There is one common element in those relationships, which happen to be communication! Do you agree with me?

With our family, do we communicate with our spouses, parents and children? A healthy relationship would see constant communication. This is the same with our friends and colleagues. We get to understand each other better and our relationship will grow over time.

Internet Marketing

Now for online marketers especially for those of us who have an email list, this is extremely important. Size of your list does not matter. It is more about how well you built your relationship with your list. You may have 1,000 on your mail list but there is hardly any communication, is there any relationship build? Perhaps you may say Yes, I have the numbers to show!

How Do I Go About From Here?

 At this point of time, you probably would have taken great pain and effort in getting your subscribers. You could have given them a free valuable e-book or video training, probably something that could help them to ease their pain. This would be for in exchange for their email address.

“Unbelievable, have you seen it?”

“Like it or not, it’s happening”

Curiosity is raised in the above two lines, psychologically you play into your subscribers feelings. Like the saying “Curiosity Kills the Cat” and the same here in increasing your chance of your email been open.

Personalising Your Email

This will make your list feel there is a connection with you. Just a suggestion, especially so for your new subscribers, cut a welcome video showing them you are someone real and not hiding behind some auto responder all the time.


Consistency is The Key written on a notepad with marker.


Make this comparison with our families, friends and colleagues against our email list.

There is always some form of constant and consistent rapport been build all the time. Go back to our courting days it’s clear during those romantic times there was a consistency in relationship building. Eventually the relationship flourish and the same are with our friends and colleagues. Why do we do that? It’s simple we are in a human relationship.

Can we do the same for our E-mail List? Can we apply those same methods? Treat your list as real people not just an email address as it may look. Email is just a mode of communicating with your list and ultimately your lists are people whom you have built.

Do we communicate with our list regularly just like with our friends. Make it consistent like say every three days or weekly. Remember your subscribers could be on numerous marketers list.

In the topic about branding, I spoke about “You Want To Be Remember”. Over here don’t you want your subscribers to remember you? Go out there and communicate with them regularly.

Commonly, marketers email their list only when they want to pitch a sale! More often than not when your list sees you doing that they will neglect you (not opening your email). Give them some valuable content, like educating them. After you educate them than pitch a sale with relevance to them.

  • Special Offers
  • Worthy content from others blogs.


End of the day you need to build the trust with your list like in any relationship. If the trust is not there, it is hard for you to progress. Be honest and truthful to your subscriber, that’s what they value from you.

It is all hard work and time consuming, but in the long term when they bring in the revenue for you, it is worth the effort put in.
