    simply put it is collecting emails off people and then sending them adverts for products that they maybe interested in

    Generally you collect emails from offering people a free product in exchange for an email

    It means that you need to have your own followers and provide them valueable stuff to build good relationship.

    once you have built a good relationship with them, you can start to promote good products (affiliate / your own products) to them. You will start to earn money.

    Note: it is not easy to achieve the above mentioned.

    Bear in mind, put youself in their shoes, you do not like people to spam you with email, so do they. You need to be patient to cultivate your lists before promoting any products.

    Building a list simply means building a list of email addresses. This list can be sent emails through the use of an autoresponder which can feed your subscribers information and sell them different products.

    The majority of internet marketers say if there's one thing they knew when they started, it would be list building.

    That should explain how powerful it is.

    Building a list means collecting email address from prospects who voluntarily subscribe to your email newsletter. You will need an autoresponder to create such a system. I suggest Aweber. They are newbie friendly and walks you through everything from setup to completion.

      Alex speaks truth! You have to cater to your subscribers' expectations, but you get to set those expectations, so be careful. How's the launch going, BTW?

      Indeed, sir. Any profitable business, whether offline or online, has a list.

      Well they're usually email addresses, but they can be anything really, as long as it gives you a way to contact your prospects or customers. And while Aweber is good, I would certainly go against the grain and recommend that a newbie starts with something like Listwire. Then when they understand how autoresponders/email marketing works, upgrade to a paid service provider.

    This is a good example of why I created my 5 Steps Profit. Newbies don't know how to build a list while some people who had months or even years of struggling but earn only a few bucks. Building a list needs a lot of factor like high converting squeeze page, juicy teasers, attractive one-time-offer and a better thank you pages to get more sales in the future. You should also don't forget to create a good autoresponder emails series so that people who subscribe can get unlimited good offers in their inbox.

    Be sure to check your products/your freebies if it is really good and check your emails if they could convert. Always improve your conversion so that when it comes that you have money to pay for solo ads, you could double your investment or otherwise get more subscribers on the way.

    You'll have to consider building your buyers list as well as freebie seekers. Value your buyers list well while convert your freebie list into buyers list or else persuade them to become your affiliate or JV partners.

    Best Regards,

    Ross

      To Build Your List.

      1. Decide what niche you want to work in.
      2. Think of a problem they have that you can provide a solution to.
      3. Build a squeeze page that has a free offer to cater for their needs.
      4. Build a sales funnel with a supporting product.
      5. Provide great quality follow up - building a relationship with your list and providing great solutions to their issues.

      If you are helping people not selling people you will get a great responsive list that trusts your recommendations.

    This sounds so simple, in reality.. its not.. I have been working for 2 months and I have 2 subscribers. Averaging 1 subscriber a month is not profitable.

    Squeeze page? I can't seem to master it.
