Internet marketing has such a steep learning curve with it, Compounded with the huge amount of miss-information on the net about marketing. Along with this miss-information, there are many distractions. There are thousands of affiliate products and services being offered to choose from. Each one telling you to go this way and that way can often times, get you pointed in the wrong direction. You can get lost for awhile before you start to realize that you are just running around in circles. Then after you get through this misdirection and you settle down and build a website. You should really consider making your own product or getting one made. When you have your own product it opens a lot more doors for you in your marketing efforts buy email address. The next objective after we have our website created and we know what products we're going to promote, most of us would think now it's time to start driving or buying traffic to bring our customers to our site. Well you are going to need traffic this is true, but this is not the first thing you should be doing. The first thing we all should be focused on is starting an opt-in mailing list and setting up with a opt-in form or some means of collecting email addresses on every page of our site. The really great thing about collecting email addresses is the fact that they allow you to develop a relationship with your subscribers, and hence the trust factor goes up and people are more inclined to accept your offer for any products that you might recommend to them. But before we can start to build our list we need to have some tools to build our list with, and without a doubt your most powerful tool in doing this, is with the use of a good autoresponder service. There are many autoresponders available, but unfortunately not all autoresponders are created equally. Now you could host your own autoresponder scripts on your website hosting. But there are many problems associated with this idea, one being that you may have people forget that they signed up for your list in the first place and accuse you of spamming. And that could possibly cause you to lose your hosting services. There are also free autoresponder services but a lot of free autoresponder providers put ads in all your emails that you send out, so you have there ads running with your ads as well. You really need to have a good autoresponder service. It is just one of those things that you just can't go freebie on. Now everything you do in marketing should revolve around this one simple concept, get your visitors email addresses. Collecting email addresses is so important. And just to see for yourself how important this is, just visit some of your competitor's websites and see if they are harvesting email address. I can guarantee you if there running a successful on-line business there collecting email addresses. The next thing in order to entice your visitors to signup for your mailing list you need to offer them something of value in exchange for the email. This could be some valuable information related to the theme of your website or it could be a free course that they receive from you in increments over a period of time. Also you could offer them something like free e-books, there are endless possibilities.
