Building a targeted list in any niche should be the cornerstone of any online business.
There are many aspects of email marketing that are universal so that once you learn how to build a list in one particular niche, it should be quite easy for you to duplicate your success and create new lists in any niche you want on the fly.
Most people start by building a list in the internet marketing niche, but it's just as easy to build one in any niche when you know how to set one up.
There are 3 basic things you will need to build a list in your niche: 1.
A Website To gather email addresses you will first need a website.
Once you have a website you can then create a "squeeze page" which is basically a type of web page that lets people give you their email address usually in exchange for a free gift, report or video.
An Autoresponder An autoresponder is a marketing service you will use that manages all your email addresses that you receive from your website and sends out the emails for you for a small monthly fee.
When you get a new email address it gets added to your list.
You can then send emails to all the people on your list whenever you like unless they decide to unsubscribe.
Traffic When you have your website and squeeze page set as well as an autoresponder service, you can then send visitors to your website by either paid or free methods and a percentage of those people will give you their email address on your squeeze page.
There are of coarse, many other factors that are involved in successful list building such as the art of writing good email messages and crafting subject lines that make people open up your emails.
These are all things you can learn after you have the foundations in place.
If you need help with each of these steps you can easily find step-by-step videos on places such as YouTube that will cover how to set up your website, editing and uploading a squeeze page to your website and how to get more traffic to your website.
There are also dozens of courses, videos and ebooks available out there that cover everything in great detail of setting up your own list if you are having trouble getting started.
