I have been online marketing for over 10 years
I started mainly with small niche websites monetized using affiliate links and Google adverts.
Then one day I realised that all my marketing was doing as well as making me money was building somebody else’s email list !
How do you build an email list and then make money?
When it hit me that while I was making good money marketing on my websites simply by posting adverts and links to offers that from a earning point I was really missing a trick in not engaging with my visitors personally by collecting email addresses and then marketing to them.
If I could capture a visitors details before sending them to a affiliate offer I could build my own email list and then market to them directly myself.
Not being one to miss an opportunity to earn some extra money I opened the email List Building Pandora’s Box
I soon realised that it is not as simple as capturing a email address, adding it to a autoresponder then send a few emails and bingo I will be holidaying on Necker Island with Mr Branson.
My First Email List Building Attempts
My initial attempts where not good.
I did managed to capture emails but me being me I decided to do it my way rather than what the list building Gurus said.
Eventually I ended up with several hundred contacts who I emailed on a regular basis with fantastic affiliate offers they would love right!
They hardly ever opened my marketing emails and when they did they didn’t click anything.
I almost came to the opinion that making good money from a email list was a lie perpetuated by people selling email list building training.
I then read a article about a marketer who was making several $1000’s a year from a list of only about 1000 subscribers.
I was making a few $ a month!
So decided to try and learn from the best in the business people like Igor Kihefets etc .. I was back into the Email Marketing Pandora’s Box
I suddenly discovered where I had gone wrong with my email marketing
Like anything online learning about email marketing and building a list is not straightforward but it’s also not difficult to do even for someone starting out.
You just need to follow the process as many have done before and copy what they do.
You will need to learn about capture or squeeze pages how to set up an autoresponder as well as copywriting good emails.
Fortunately done for you websites like wordpress and clickfunnels have made the process of adding simple capture forms and connecting them to a autoresponder very simple so that now anyone can build an email list
There is also lots of good free advice and templates of high converting email copy that you can download and alter to suit any niche.
List Building Courses for beginners
Now a quick search on google and you can end up paying 100’s if not 1000’s to learn how to build a list and make money from email marketing.
Most are very good but for a beginner I would suggest reading some blogs from those who are at the top of the game.. they will all offer some sort of course probably starting at about $97 a month upwards so avoid being dragged in and treat it as a learning curve.
The best free list building course I have come across is by Wayne Crow at Traffic Domination.
He breaks it down to the basics with a seven step process which includes the capture pages email templates and where to get the best converting offers.

What’s more it will not cost the earth to get started and is an investment in your online marketing future.
