List Building - How To Start List Building From Scratch

Okay - you've know doubt heard that in order to make the
big profits on the internet you need an opt in list.

But for many people just starting out on their internet
business, it can be a chore to know where to get started
with your list building.

One of the best ways to start your list building is by
joining forums and posting to them.

This is really simple and brings in some very responsive
subscribers to add to your opt in list.

There are forums on just about every topic available.

All you have to do is type in a few of your favorite key
words on your topic of interest and you'll find more than
enough forums to keep you busy.

For example, if you're interested in getting people to
join your list that have an interest in "growing the
best tomatoes", then you would do a search for "growing
tomatoes and forums".

Once you find a few that you like, sign up and study how
the people make posts.

Once you feel comfortable enough with posting, you can
then ask questions of other members.

You will also want to answer other questions that have
been posted by fellow members.

This way, you set yourself up as an "expert" in your

At the end of each of your posts, you'll want to add
a signature file.

This is nothing more than an ad that will get the readers
of your posts to visit your website.

Your website should be set up to offer a free report on
your topic.

In return for downloading your free report, your visitors
must give you their first name and email address.

This is called list building and is how you will eventually
turn these subscribers into customers through subsequent
email correspondence and promotion.
