    Step One: Get a website.
    Step Two: Have an opt-in box.
    Step Three: Start sending your emails.

    Here is what you have to do in order to start:

    1. Purchase a domain and hosting. You can use Godaddy, Hostgator, etc.

    2. Install WordPress on it. It's really easy to do and you can use your hosting's control panel to install your WordPress with couple of clicks.

    3. You need to have a squeeze page. This will grab the visitor's email address and will send them an email containing the link to the offer you've promised them. In the meanwhile, it will create a list that you can use in many different ways.

    3.1. Need an autoresponder account. You can use Getresponse, Aweber, Mailchimp, etc.

    3.2. Need to create the squeeze page. You can find free ones or start creating a custom one for yourself or pay someone to create one for you or use designers such as OptimizePress.

    4. Now the most important factor is traffic. You need a lot of targeted traffic. For that you can either go for paid or free traffic.

    4.1. Paid traffic: You will get the results a lot faster but you have to be willing to pay. Paid traffics are Facebook Ads, Solo Ads, etc.

    4.2. Free traffic: As it's obvious, you don't have to pay for it but you have to put the work that is required. You can use Youtube videos, Blogging, Facebook wall and groups, Twitter, etc.

    5. This one is the most important one. You need consistency.

    When someone ask me this question, especially knowing that they have 0 experience with online marketing or have absolutely no website building skills or knowledge of html.

    I send them to a affiliate marketing site with many done for you aspects, and training, so they can go to one website and learn the basics step by step. Then as they start to understand the whole process, they can be gaining knowledge and earning some income at the same time.

    I mean if I tell you to create a squeeze page, and you do not know what that is, or get an autoresponder, but you have no clue what I am talking about..Much better to put you in a program, that shows you what these are and how they work, and gives advanced training to show you how to start creating your own pages..This in my opinion is a much easier way to learn and start.

    If this interest you, get in touch with me, pm me and I will direct you to such an affiliate program.

    There's plenty of answer to the same question on the internet and specially on this forum, do some research.

    Anyway. to start with Email Marketing. You'll need to pick a niche (MMO, Health/Diet, Dating..etc) you gotta choose the niche very carefully.

    Once you have chosen the niche. go get a website (upload a landing page, squeeze page, lead capture page).

    link it to an autoresponder.

    start sending traffic to your website.

    you gotta split test more then one leading page. for better results.
