    Hi, you need traffic to your site or squeeze page. Then you need to convert well. A good squeeze page is essential - optimize press for WordPress is great, traffic is a little more difficult, but there are many free ways, such as guest posting or blog commenting...... I write about this sort of stuff at my blog quite frequently.

      The slow but sure methods of forum marketing, blog posting, guest blogging - are all free and will get a start on your list. But you will need a great squeeze page that converts well if your efforts aren't to be wasted.

      Good luck !

    Try spending some money on a good product/ebook to give your visitors for free. This will generate some extra valued opt-ins.

    Start off with a squeeze page, I use Optimizepress as you can do a whole lot of other things with it.

    Do you have a squeeze page up? Are you offering a report/video/ebook/whatever as a freebie to entice people to sign up? How are you driving traffic to that squeeze page? Think about utilising social media, YouTube, syndicated content and forum marketing as some proven methods and don't forget you can offer a sign-up via your Facebook fan page, for example.

    Are you sure you have identified what your chosen niche wants and how they want it delivered? Maybe dig a little deeper, hang around relevant forums (if it's IM, for example, then trawl through plenty of posts here to find out what problems/issues people are facing) and offer a partial solution in the form of your giveaway. Then offer the full solution in the form of your product/affiliate offers in follow-up emails.

    Just some thoughts to get you going...

    Can you share the page you are trying to get leads from? Is it a squeeze page or an article-style page with an opt-in box on the side of the page?

    The best advice is just to take action, and if you get stuck with something pay someone to help you.

    It's also good if you join the lists of people in the same niche as you want to build a list in. Study how they create the list building process and reverse engineer it to work for you.

    Once you know that you're funnel is working spend time learning how to generate traffic, and don't be afraid to use paid sources if you know the list building part if making sales.

    if your new to IM and your trying to build a list then one of the best things to do is create your own personal blog

    create your blog and create value in that area

    once people see that you know your stuff and you start to build a following on your blog you will easily be able to start building a list from there

    create some value first and then build a list

    im not saying that if you just have a squeeze page you won`t be able to build a list but having a personal blog does wonders for your credibility and people can see that your areal person which provides value in the market place

    the list that you build from your blog are more responsive too because they get to know you more first before opting in to your list

    this is one of the platforms which i have used and it has worked great for me along with many other marketers

    A great squeeze page and a free incentive is a solid foundation, then it's all about building traffic.

      I agree with Paul.

      Build a blog and see what posts that people respond to. Build your traffic to 300+ per day...then divert some of that traffic with a popup, opt-in under your post, etc. to a free course in exchange for their email address.

      I built a large list using that exact method. It won't happen overnight, but works well if you offer great content on your blog.

    A mentor is a great idea. As someone in the thread has offered to help you out, I'd be taking that offer if I were you. It helps to have the benefit of someone to nudge you who's been down that road already.

    hey i hear you...it sucks building a list...

    The fastest lists I have ever built were when I gave away nothing...but it is trial and error and knowing what converts and what doesnt...
    1. Have a reason for someone to get on your list...great content, give something away...
    2. If this is what you want...make sure everything you do points to that sign up
    3. Make sure your page leads people to your sign up...example

    What I will say is if you go the free route of building a list, then it will be slow. Because it takes traffic and whole lot of it. You can expect anywhere between a 1-15% sign up rate.

    One last thing to keep in mind...you may need to do some pre-selling on your signup...for instance if I like what someone is saying on a specific topic and click on a link that gives more information...I usually sign up or buy from them...

    The best lists to build are from those who buy something from you...I would rather have a list of a 100 from people who bought one of my products than a 1000 from people I gave something away too...

    Personally, I find the blogging route to be to be an incredibly sloooooow way to get going.
    When you consider all the writing and then all the seo you have to do, it can be a massive investment in your time.
    I suppose it all depends on how patient you are and how much time you want to invest.

    My thoughts are to pick up all the list building training you can.
    Then, distill them down to a workable straight forward plan that you can stick to.
    Build or buy a "lead Magnet".. (your giveaway)
    Build a squeeze page.
    Consider running some solo ads if you really want to kickstart things. You can have 200-300 on your list in a matter of days this way.

    I hope this helps.
    Good luck to you in your list building.
