I've been reading some posts here and doing some research and it seems like the way to make money from affiliating is to build a list of subscribers so I can then sell to them in the future. I have some questions about building lists:-
1) What is the best way to add an 'opt in' to a website? I mean, I was thinking of giving away a free ebook in the first page of my site so I can lure people in and get their email address onto my list, is this a good strategy?
2) Is there a way to build a list and send out automated emails for free? I don't have much money right now and need to stick to free marketing as much as possible.
Thanks for your help.
