    Build a squeeze page for one I use point and click squeeze from James Francis they work very well and they are cheap $ 7 bucks.

    Have a great offer people will actually want, and send as much traffic to your squeeze page as possible.

    These are the Foundations for building a lucrative email list.

    P.S. be sure to have a great one time offer that actually converts so you can make money on autopilot while you are building up your list.

  • I basically started a PPC campaign with a squeeze page. PPC gives me a quick instant boost of leads to kick-start my list. Then I communicate with them by e-mailing them blog posts combined with Social Media options so that the leads that I got via PPC can also spread the value virally.

    From my experience, PPC or paid traffic in general can be a quick kick-start to your list-building journey.

      I started building my first list back in November 2003.

      Did I start it properly?


      You learn through trial and error (or from other people's
      experience) what works - and what doesn't work.

      I started off my list using 1ShoppingCart but then moved
      over to AWeber. I've also moved my lists many times to
      other providers like Infusionsoft, iContact and self-hosted

      The most important thing is not to get it right - it's to get
      it going!

      Dedicated to mutual success,

        Most definitely, and then the second most important part is to keep it going...

        That's what I'm most guilty of.

        I've had numerous lists in the past - and my main business always ended up keeping me "too busy" (in my own mind) to be doing other things.

        But, time and experience have changed that - and now managing the list is number one priority.

        Once you've got momentum - keep it going, it takes less force to keep an object moving that it does to start it.

    I want to learn more about this. Can anyone tell what is list building and how important is it to build a list....can it generate huge amounts of traffic for a website?

    i also began with Aweber...I did very well. I used Safe Swaps and free products and built it up that way.
