    Hey Kangol99

    Building your email list isn't an overnight job. It can take time to do it the right way.

    First thing you will need is a free give-away (ethical bribe) to give to someone in exchange for their email address. They won't just jump on your list for no reason.

    Free giveaways that work well are short ebooks or reports, audio training or video training. I have used all 3, free reports I have found to work the best, having said that I am using a free video at the moment,what works best will depend on your market so you'll need to test to see what is most effective.

    The key with your free giveaway is to keep it short. Your prospect should be able to consume it in under 20 mins .Don't give away 250 page ebooks or 28 day video courses, they will more than likely never open it.

    Your free giveaway's job is to start the relationship off with your subscriber on the right foot. They have to know,like and trust you. If they never open your free gift then it won't do it's job.

    Keep it short and to the point. Try and keep it to 'one problem, one solution'. Don't try and solve ALL your market's problems with your free gift.

    With regards to content for your free gift, have a look in Facebook groups and forums in your market and find a frequent question being asked or a common pain they comes up again and again. Check out the forum threads that have the most views/replies and see what questions are being asked.

    Then you will need to build a squeeze page. If you have zero technical skills then don't panic, for a small investment you can buy some 'drag and drop' page builders. I use Optimize press 2 but there are lots out there to choose from which will integrate with your autoresponder account.

    Another few are Leadpages, instabuilder and LandingPagemonkey.

    Once your squeeze page is set up and free gift created all you need is to 'just add traffic'

    The fastest way to build your list would be paid traffic. By far the most effective at present is Facebook ads but I would definitely educate yourself on this first because FB will shut you down very quickly if you break any of their 'terms of use' and trust me it's not difficult to do.( I've had a few accounts closed overnight minor violations)

    If you are on a budget then you will need to use the more traditional 'free' traffic methods. Although they aren't completely free as you have to pay with your time. Search for some high traffic blogs in your niche and start to leave comments on some posts which have high interaction

    Don't leave a two word comment such as 'great post' try and see your comment as a mini extension of the original post and add some value. You will then be able to drop a link back to your site. Readers of the blog post will see what you've written and naturally want to check out your site.

    Hope that helps. Any questions then please give me a shout

    Dancraig's answer is great.

    Here's what I would add:

    #1 - Create a few amazing blog posts that answer your niche's biggest problems/challenges.

    Be sure to optimize your blog posts with lead capture forms or links to your squeeze page.

    #2 - Then go find out where your perfect customer is hanging out online. There are many fishing holes, but not all were created equal.

    Facebook? Facebook Groups? YouTube? Forums? Instagram? Twitter? Blogs?

    Wherever they are, spend your time there giving value and then leading back to your blog content on your website.

    If you provide a lot of value in your blog post, then a percentage of your visitors will want to opt-in to your email newsletter in exchange for your freebie.

    You will now have a warm lead on your list that you can follow up with and promote your products to.

    #3 - Amplify your efforts by running paid Facebook ads to your blog post (assuming your audience is on Facebook).

    With just $5 a day you can market your blog post in front of thousands of targeted people.

    And you can turn that cold traffic into warm leads once they read your content and subscribe.

    Make sure that your email list is about something that you, even remotely, enjoy. Find groups on Facebook, forums, websites that are talking about your topic. Help people and actually care about what they are asking. Get caught up in being helpful. Give of yourself. On your website, offer something (like an E-Book) for free. It doesn't have to be 250 pages, it can be a simple E-Book. As you get engulfed in your topic, you'll quickly be able to identify the common issues that people have. That will give you a great idea as to what to write your E-Book about, as well as what to write your newsletters about.

    I once tried to build a list of Payday Loan subscribers. Let me tell you how much I enjoy talking about Payday Loans...about as much as a root canal.

    Find your passion and stick with it. Remember the old saying "Build it and they will come".

    It takes money...I build 100k leads a month. But I've been doing this 13 years and have my own ESP and lead source.

    Be careful. Don't buy bulk list you will never be able to deliver email.

    In building your email list remember that you have to assure your readers that they will derive some benefit from handing over their information.
    That means you should offer them something in return for their private information. There are many ways you can grow your email list. Here are five....

    1. Specify a Date: tell your customers that the bonus is only available for a limited time. Specify the date and let them know that the offer won’t be there after this time.

    2. Time’s running out: tell your subscribers that they only have x amount of minutes to subscribe. Including a timer on the page can help drive conversions even faster.

    3. Sneak Preview: Inform subscribers that they’ll receive a free sample of your content if they subscribe to your list.

    4. Great Deal: Tell subscribers that you will give them a coupon or a discount on one of your products or services.

    5. Publish Again: Let subscribers know they can republish or reprint your content if they subscribe to your list.

    If you want more techniques and strategies for growing your email list, you can contact me.

    Fast... You can only achieve that via paid advertising.

    Free advertising works too, but it's definitely slower. Unless you can create viral campaigns where people will keep sharing it giving you free traffic over and over again.

    Thus, it is very important for you to create a basic sales funnel which can help you generate up front sales. This will really help you a lot with your budget in paid advertising.

    So determine your niche, find a product which you think your audience will want to buy.

    Having a lead magnet is really up to you. But if you want to use a lead magnet, keep it short. You do not want to spend another week to create this because time wasted is money wasted.

    If you are into the make money online niche, start off with solos. Tweak your lead capture page to increase the conversions. A 30% conversion and 50% conversion rate is really huge. Imagine having 200 more subscribers from a 1000 click campaign.

    Once you are comfortable with solo ads and making positive ROI, then do other forms of advertising...Facebook, Bing etc.

    The beauty of paid advertising is, you will be able to scale it up to build your list at a fast rate once you have a campaign which can break even and generate positive ROI for every advertising campaign.

    I've been building an email list since around 2010.

    All of the "get a huge list quick" guides I've ever encountered have never paid off lol.

    The only thing that really works, is focusing on creating awesome content, or focusing on paid media buying.

    Either way, it requires effort.

    If you're going the content marketing route, look into adding a lead magnet into EVERY piece of content that you ever create.

    So if you're creating YouTube videos, blog posts, Podcasts, Kindle books - or any piece of content, be sure to add LEAD MAGNETS to your content rather liberally.



    If you're going to focus on the paid advertising route, be ready to brainstorm a KILLER funnel so the cost of lead acquisition can be minimized.

    So focus on your lead capture page conversions, your one time offer, and your long-term funnel monetization strategy.

    As you might imagine, either way you go, it requires research and development.

    That being said, email marketing rocks, and is totally worthy of your devotion.
