If you want to build a high quality list for free, you will want to take a very close look at publishing small eBooks through the Kindle KDP program. I’m not talking large eBooks. I am talking 15 to 30 page mini eBooks.
Amazon’s Kindle KDP program is a great way to self publish and get your eBooks in front of a lot of fresh eyes. Of course if you do this right, you will also be adding a lot of fresh people to your email lists.
OK, you have a few small eBooks written in the niche of your email list. Let’s discuss how you get these readers to opt-in to your email list.
What you want to do is create a companion product for each eBook you write. This should be something that people reading your eBook will want or need.
For example, if you mention a list of websites in your eBook, why not only list a few in the actual eBook and then create a large list in PDF format that the buyers of the eBook can download for free? Of course they would need to opt-in to your list to get it.
Or, make it a two part eBook. Put the first part on Kindle and give the second part as a free gift that the readers of part one can download at no additional cost.
At the beginning of each eBook you will want to place the offer for the free gift with a link to your squeeze page. I like to place this free gift offer with a call to action just after the cover page and before the table of contents. This way it’s viewable when people click on the “Look Inside” feature Kindle has. This way it also appears in “sample the beginning of the eBook” option Kindle has. This way even more eyes see the free gift and end up on my email list without even buying the eBook.
Also add the free gift and call to action at the end of the eBook. This way it reminds the reader when they have finished reading the eBook that they have a free gift waiting.
To get more readers of your eBooks you will want to price them at 99 cents. This way more people will buy your eBooks on impulse and if your offer is strong and enticing enough, end up on your email list.
Now I will let you in on a way to get your eBooks in the hands of even more people. Enroll all of your eBooks in the KDP Select program. You will then be able to give your eBooks away for free for a total of 5 days during each 90 day period.
Amazon also has a Kindle Unlimited program that you should enroll your eBooks in. This will get them in the hands of even more people.

Give this method of list building a try and see how well it does for you. You may end up being amazed with the results. Want more email subscribers? Just write and add additional eBooks to the Kindle platform.
