    1. Learn about the basics of email marketing on YouTube or Udemy

    2. Get a free starter account at MailChimp.

    3. Create an autoresponder, a series of automated emails on MailChimp.

    4. Create a squeeze page (or a landing page) on your website.

    5. Get the form from MailChimp and put that form on your squeeze page.

    6. Get traffic to that squeeze page.

    7. Whomever submits their name and email on your squeeze page will now receive your automated emails.

    Before you start you need Emails & For Email you need to put signup form on your website. Don't think to buy email address because is marked as spam so avoid this trick.

    After getting Email Address through sign up form you will easily use any of the email services like GetResponce, Mailchimp, Mailrelay & Many more. But my advice go through GetResponce...

    "Just get started" definitely applies to email marketing as well. Even if it's just for your own blog, start building a list, creating great content, and pushing it out regularly.

    That said, building an expertise in email marketing really depends on the industry. There's a huge difference between Ecommerce (where effective email marketing must consist of a combination of newsletters and triggered emails like abandoned carts, win-backs, cross-sell email, etc) vs a software business (where email marketing has much more to do with classic B2B lead nurturing).

    To start to build that industry specific knowledge, I'd recommend finding companies you admire and start to pay attention to their email marketing. Supplement that with finding the email sending platforms that do best in each industry to learn what smart marketers are doing.

  • Well, you can follow these tips to get started with email marketing:

    1. Get familiar with email marketing: You must get familiar with basic email marketing terms, techniques and strategies. Then analyse which one can work for you based on your niche.

    2. Built an email list: To start email marketing, the very first thing you're going to need is a mailing list. You can build one through opt-in forms, or by introducing giveaways in return of emails addresses.

    3. Design: Your emails should be well designed, having a combination of images, videos, Call to Actions and little text. Well because no one is going to read those boring emails containing all texts.
