    Get an Aweber 30 day trial.

    Get LeadPages or MegaPhoneApp.

    Create a capture page and make it redirect to an affiliate offer as soon as people opt in.

    Put a signature in the WF.

    Buy Solo Ads to that capture page.

    This subject is a VERY big subject and I suggest you do some googling in order to find some better information, maybe you should even buy a few products around that subject

    I'd personally go with Get Response as you get a 30 day trial + full training. Also, you get $30 credit when you upgrade.

    Nobody here can answer this for you in a paragraph or two. I'd recommend taking a course ("Inbox Blueprint" is a very good course on email marketing).

      The thing I haven't seen mentioned yet is; building a relationship with your list.

      You can have a list of 100K but if they think your just after their money you won't get much of it.

      Conversely, having a list of only 10k can be more profitable than that 100k list if you have a great relationship with them.

      One of the best ways to get a relationship is to give them value.

        Getting email address is easy. Getting people to buy is a bit different.

          The programs are already mentioned...

          The steps: There are many different ways to go about it.

          1. Decide on niche to focus on

          2. Learn as much as you can about that niche

          3. Share your knowledge with your list - builds trust

          4. Create offers in that niche or promote affiliate offers. Not just for the sake of promoting but seek out products that really help.

          Do this and you will have a hyper responsive list that will buy just about anything you suggest or create.

        You hit the nail on the head!!!!!
        I would take a buyers list of 1,000 members I have a relationship with rather than a 100k freebie seekers.
        A buyers list that trust you will have there credit card in hand before they even open your email.

      While MailChimp is free, they frown upon some affiliate links. They're checking the links you're sending out against a blacklist.

      As they put it themselves: "If you're someone who calls yourself an affiliate marketer whose content is strictly to gain a commission, MailChimp isn't for you."

        I know that you've already had many answers and most of them are correct. However, It is not that easy to learn about email marketing so I would like to recommend you a book. This book is really user-friendly and will give you an introduction about email marketing. After that if you are still interested, you will be able to learn more stuff from videos linked in the book (which is more fun).

        To get a link to the book just contact me personally as I don't want to look like someone who's trying to promote products.

    First of all i'm build opt-in page (Landing page) and hosted on my blog after that you need integrate opt-in form (for collecting your visitors’ contact details). Next step you'll need ethical bribe to give visitors (in exchange for their contact details). To encourage people to join your list, give them a freebie that offers valuable information. It could be a video, an ebook, a podcast, or an application. In my case its ebook at first and video lessons ay the second step.
    At last install autoresponder (aweber, mailchimp, getresponse) for organizing your collected emails and sending messages to them.

    You have been given some very good summaries of viable list building methods. You will, however, sooner or later need a more comprehensive and detailed description from a proven source.Effective list building is something you need to study and learn. Best to do that from someone who has been very successful doing it. They are unlikely to be able to tell you everything in a post here.

    Speaking of numbers ... I recently saw a EXCELLENT CONVERSION page.. And they generated about 200,000 sign ups.. But when they launched they only had about 1300 upgrades.... SOO.. In a numbers point of view less than 1%...

    I've had a pre-launch with only 13,000 members in my list and when I launched I had close to 800 upgrades..

    So when you do build your list, Remember they are PEOPLE and , if you treat them right and EARN their respect, and EARN their trust. A list of 500 people may work better for you than a list of 5000.... When I opt in to someones list to subscribe for a weekly newsletter I actually have interest in, and than the first 4 days I get promotions or ads not even related to the newsletter I automatically opt-out.... Honor what your saying your giving away or getting them to opt in for. If it's for a newsletter .. Than just send the newsletter ... Try to get their birthdays , or get them to like your FB page so you'll see their birthdays and send them a "Happy Birthday" ... Just tips on "Relationship Building" not "list building"....

    If BUILDING your list is all you're asking, then here's my recommendation:

    1. Get an autoresponder (like AWeber or GetResponse)
    2. Have an incredible free offer
    3. Offer it on your squeeze page (I use Weebly for simple page building)
    4. Drive traffic.

    Be sure your free offer targets what the prospect is seeking answers for.

    I personally prefer YouTube for residual traffic. If I make a video about traffic, my squeeze page offers an awesome 'traffic' guide, etc. Do the work once, grab traffic 'forever.'

    Also, I use a free viral list building software to multiply the efforts of my traffic driving...and offer an up-front $7-$20 product to make quick commissions, so that I can get some money together to also pay for traffic (Solo Ads, Banners, PPC, whatever) Much faster and easier.

    As others have said, there's so many other details to the process. YouTube some info and invest money into some courses too. You might even see how some YouTube videos you find are trying to convert YOU into a list subscriber, just like we're advising you to do in this thread

    Hi Knightsofusa,

    I know this does not tell you how, but here are Two Ideas to get you a list of buyers. Worth infinately more than getting cold leads.

    Create a good product of your own and sell it through this system, then keep doing the same.

    Contact owners of upcoming launches and ask to give your good products away by placing a link to them on the thankyou/download pages of these peoples products. Those links go to your capture page first. :>)

    Learn how to do either or both of these things and you will be building a good business and a valuable list that you can also sell other good offers to.


    cheers, Mal.

    I have had a good experience cold emailing people. It is not a typical cold-email in the sense that I ask them for quotes for an upcoming blog, etc. People normally respond, and once they do, I notify them when the article goes live. Once this partnership is over, they normally ask me to get back in touch with them for any future articles I write. So I take that as a permission to add them to my email list.

    You can easily grow your list by 500 or 600 over a 6 month period. Not shabby if you also take up several other email list building techniques.

      The market place cares only about themselves - you may've heard this already but it bears repeating. Everyone's favorite radio station is WIII(FM); What Is In It For Me. The most important thing you can do to build an email list is offer value to people who land on your page. DO NOT expect to get something from them (like making a sale) rather, they are expecting to get something from you (a helpful free report, a helpful free video, etc). Give value first - give without want in order to eventually receive...

    To build a list you need basic tools such as:

    1. Autoresponder
    2. Domain & Hosting
    3. Freebie Incentive
    4 Traffic

    To build a responsive list you need:

    1. Decent follow up sequence
    2. Great communication
    3. Value driven emails that build relationships
    and show your list that you want to help them.

    Basically treat your list as they are.. REAL PEOPLE! That will help them gain a trust for you.

    If they ask you a question do your best to respond and help them out.

    1) Buy domain name from godaddy $0.99 first year. PM for link

    2) Buy Hosting from hostgator: PM me for 25 % discount link

    3) Join Getresponse Autoresponder. First month free

    4) Make 1-page squeeze page offering a free report in return of email address.

    5) Create a sequence of 15-30+ emails promoting related affiliate products and store them in Getresponse.

    6) Send targeted traffic to your squeeze page, grow your email list and earn affiiate commissions on autopilot.

    The important thing is building an Email list. We can use a plugin for this and need put optin offer in multiple places.

    01. Popup
    02. Sidebar
    03. Footer
    04. Signup Page

    From forum signatures... from organic traffic... and from selling WSO's.

    Maybe a few from blog comments.

    That's how I build my list. Is it the best way... nope... it's a bit slow unless you have a 'hit' product with lots of affiliates promoting for you.
