What Is Email List Building?
List Building is the process of building (maintaining) a list of other people's email details. The email address is obviously the must have item and where possible name and maybe even other personal details but more than just just the person's first name or surname is required. As the email address is how you will communicate with this person.
You will send the person an email via your email service provider which is the company you signed up with when you registered.
The registration process is done online with which ever provider you wish, you will find them online with a suffix like 'providername.com.' There is more and more email providers that are being hosted by some companies due to availability to provide a 100% delivery rate, the largest mail provider is Google (Gmail) so like many others this is a free service and you just enter your contact details online as you specify the email address you would like. This email address is up to you to decide, but with so many personal details taken across the globe you may not get the one you require but most providers will give you an example which is the best similarity and available that they can provide like 'graham1003 'instead of' graham 'easy really. There is a worldwide standard of @ meaning at, which determines the name of the service provider so in the above example 'graham1003' would be suffixed with @ meaning 'at' service provider name.
Each of the email service providers give the same basic functionality through their screens, but of course each provider will be different.
The building of the list of your contacts is provided by your chosen service provider using a series of screens to enter all your contact details and to be able to read and send emails.
You will be asked to provide your identification details like name and address through the series of screens.
With this email account you will be able to build your email list where you will be able to add other people's contact details using their email details and name and whatever other information you have.
Another way to get these details is to give that person your details and for them to email you, this process will send an email to you and the basic contact details will be available for you to add to your contact list (email list). The next stage will be to add lots more people's details so you are adding to your list.
