Many people put off the task of building a list when they are just starting out on the internet. The result is that time goes by and they have no one to market to. Don’t let this happen to you.
Choose a niche as quickly as possible so that you can start collecting names and email addresses of people who may be good prospects for your products and services. if you change niches later on, you can still give the first group good information and tips and tell them about affiliate products and services that would be of interest to them. I did this when I was marketing to people interested in selling their homes without hiring a real estate agent. Real estate had been a big part of my life, so I thought it would be my niche on the internet. When I decided to change to my current niche I told them about this real estate eBook and they were able to sell their homes and keep more money.
The most important thing is to start blogging, writing articles, and setting up simple opt-in pages. Give people a short report or audio recording in exchange for their name and email address. Let your prospects know that you are interested in giving them exactly the information they are searching for, and your online empire will grow very quickly. It all begins when you start building and growing your list.
