What are the most important steps when building a brand audience from scratch?

As my team and I are pushing sales for our startup ratesight.com, we are working on building an audience as well. We don't have much of a marketing budget, so I want to know what you think are the most important things we can do to begin to build an audience, for free.

So you can search on Google "HOW THE BIGGEST ENTREPRENEURS BUILD THEIR HUGE EMAIL LISTS" then you will be able to find a related article read this article. you can also read other related article which will help you to solve your problem. Thanks

    Start doing SEO from scratch, add social media activity (FB, T, G+), make related buzz about your business in other related communities. Use remarketing for users who've visited your project. Make some quality contet, get your user's contact data (emails) to communicate with them effectively. There are plenty of activities to make and they won't cost you a fortune.

    Building an Audience means gaining fellowers who trust you and are in the "good mood" for becoming reccurrent buyers.

    So...what it the best strategy? Email Marketing of course!

    If you want to build an audience you have to provide first something very valuable for the audience you are targeting, i mean something they really need, and of course in exchange of your valuable informations, they need to provide their mail.

    So you can statisfy their need of infos, telling them how to do or find what they lack, and then provide the unique solution which obviously is a paid product.

    BUT first you have to build faith in your advices, show your expertise with this audience.

    HOW TO FIND THESE PEOPLE who HAVE TO PUT THEIR MAIL?

    The sources are endless but nowadays the king of the big data is Fb Ads.
    Master fb ads and then others.

    Then you can easily differentiate your advertising channels, with google adwords for display network, solo ads etc.

              Ratesight.com is the general website, that explains the software. The software is an online review management platform that tracks and collects reviews for a company and helps them get more quality reviews

    All of the above are right. And every strategy will work to an extent. The question is how much time, money and resourcing do you have ? How smart do you want to be and pick the highest ROI platforms? How do you figure that out? Start with who your audience is and ask them where they hang out - then be present there, and show them what problems you really will solve for them. Be useful, be relevant and be smart.

    1) Think about a plan

    2) execute

    3) check if it works or not. If it works , create a system around it. If it fails, drop it

    If you come to know that posting on warriorforum will generate x number of visitors. Find a writer, give him content ideas. Work on system for 1 month. Talk to him everyday. People think they will have freelancer and he will figure it out himself. No, you have to constantly evaluate and make adjustments in his course of action.

    But, slowly you will have system which will generate specific amount of visitors. Do this for ppc, face book ppc, seo etc. What ideas work, that will depend upon your target audience.
