Once you have set up your blog, you should start building your email list. To build a list you will need to set up an auto-responder. It is recommended that you use a reputable company such as Aweber or Getresponse. The more subscribers you have, the more expensive it becomes.
In exchange for the persons email address you will normally give something of value such as a free report or video or even just a news letter. Many people in internet marketing say that the money is in the list.
This is only half true. The real truth is that the money is in the relationship with the list. Otherwise spammers would be millionaires! Once you start to build your list it is important to segregate your lists between buyers and freebie seekers. You can unsubscribe people from one list into another once they have bought. The most valuable list there is a buyers list. This list such be treated like the golden resource that it is.
As well as offering something on your blog you should set up a squeeze page, this is page that is solely for getting subscribers.
