I have never tried list building in my previous niches and maybe that is why they fizzled out. But I believe this offer is different because for one it's free. No membership fees or upsells or anything. Fill out the form and they are done. So I think I will try composing a subscriber list but I never did a real list building strategy.
What works best when list building? Can I just include an opt in form on my landing page? Or do I need a separate squeeze page? Which is a good, affordable autoresponder? Since my offer is free and reoccurring, should I try to upsell something after the optin?
Granted many college students are on a shoe string budget so I don't want to scare off members who can reapply for the free stuff every month.
