Well happy with it.

I got my first subscriber and on the day I release my free giveaway.

It made me nervous and excited all at the same time.

Every post, product and bit of news, I have to email out now as well.

I haven't even set up my email template properly yet.

    Well done, anyway. I know the feeling. There's nothing like having the first person sign up to give you the incentive to get another few outgoing emails loaded in the autoresponder. Don't delay: the one who signed up today needs to hear from you today (and again tomorrow or the next day, etc. etc. ... it's all about continuity).

    yeah, they will be getting at least 2 emails from me a week with links to my blog articles. I reckon that is enough unless I am launching a product where I may be posting every day.

    Its the next step for me in my venture and learning curve.

    Well done!

    This is the way to go. You don't need to get everything right. Just move forward, build that list and start making some money.

    Now you have validated that your setup works. From here on its rinse and repeat; focus on more on what works and drop what doesn't.

    All the best :-)

    Just keep in mind that it's a journey, not a destination...

    You've already done more than most people - you've taken action... the next step is to keep setting and keeping your goals.

    Focus on a method of driving traffic, and when you're set with that method... look to another one.

    Start thinking about creating your own product... There are so many things you can do once you have your own product (that you can't without one) that it boggles the mind...

      Ditto this.
      There's a free wso being given away called Instant Product (from back in the day). It's gotten rave reviews. When you're ready, definitely create your own product.

    Well done. Keep your subs happy with quality content emails and then promote to them products that closely relate to the info emails.

    I remember the first time someone subscribed to my list. I was just as excited as you haha.

    Good job on getting your first email subscriber! Now your most important job is making regular contact with those people. Don't be like those marketers who ignore the list for months or years and then go begging back to that dead list hoping to breathe life into it again. Just start emailing out info as promised on a regular basis and really take time to talk back with your subscribers and ask for their feedback. Even asking the person on your list to RE or respond back to your emails is a good idea, so long as it gives them a way to directly talk with you.

    Congrats!

    I'm just starting my list building too. In fact I did an experiment a couple of weeks ago with a landing page hosted by aweber, and I just did some like 2 blog comments with a link to the landing page. I just checked yesterday and I have 4 subs and I'm converting at 36% LOL!
