If you are looking to make an email marketing list then I am going to show you how you can do this and do this fast. Internet marketing comes down to so many things and people always think that they can just wake up and get started today and see a ton of money tomorrow. That's not true, You have to work at it and you have to work for it hard.
Treat it like a business, because it is a business. One way that you can get started building a list is by starting a blog and offering some really good content for free. Offer 100 dollars worth of value and give it away for free. List building is all about relationship building, if you can build a solid foundation with people they will begin to trust you and you can start to grow your list.
Forum marketing also helps you build a list in a huge way, the more that you get active in the forums the more people will see your name and how much you help people that they will be dying for you to help them out, give them some information and help get them started in whatever it is that you are doing to help.
That word is key, you must help people if you want to ask them for something in return, so always work on providing value.
Start by getting Aweber or GetAResponse, these would have to by the leading email list services to go with. Once that's done start putting up ads and videos, articles and press releases telling people about your free offers.
