So, after listening to what all the top players here are telling me, I went ahead and did it. I went with a WordPress theme on a new domain I created just for this blog. I figure if I keep the content relatively fresh and valid, it'll help a lot more in the longrun than a plain (or fancy) website to build my list. And that's what it's all about, right? Building a targeted list to presell all the related affiliate products?
So, I've got 6 niche related affiliate company banners there so far. A top wide banner, a side long banner, and 4 150x150 blocks on the side.
I also put in a datafeed using Soflyy's "WP All Import" plugin. I guess I should have read the User's Manual (or at least watched the tutorial video), because I now have 18,148 new posts... Oops!
Also, I'm not going to use any type of squeeze technique - just an opt-in with some sort of "I Just Can't Pass This Up" incentive. I'll be using Constant Contact because of the bells & whistles. They'll actually come in quite handy with this particular niche. I'll keep my GetResponse account for my other test campaign that I made $20 on, though.

So, onward and upward!
Thanks again for all of your valued input,
