Building an email list takes time, a bit of work, and a good offer of information for potential readers and customers to engage in. You can produce your own document, PDF, ebook, video or audio file to offer, or you can purchase one ready made for you through various sites like Fiverr, ELance, ODesk.

The idea is that people like free things. If they perceive value in your offer, you will find that building your email list will happen quickly and rather effortlessly after you get up and running.

You’ve just seen an awesome infographic that shows you the steps to building your email list with simple and easy to do methods.

The first step to any list building campaign is deciding how you will capture your leads. Are you going to use a landing page, a contact page, a subscribe box, an autoresponder or a software to capture those leads?

Choosing one or more options will allow you a more complete opportunity to capture and get on your list some names and email addresses of people who really want to know what you have to share.

As we’ve all ready talked about, you need to choose your offer or gift, set up your landing page/subscribe page/or software to capture the leads, set up your autoresponder to provide the free gift or information immediately to the subscriber and have some follow-up emails loaded in there; then you need to go out and advertise/market your pages via forums, discussion groups, advertising groups, traffic exchanges, classified ads…everywhere you can think of.

All that hard and tedious work will pay off if you remain consistent and persistent in advertising and drawing people to your offer. You’ll be building your email list with each ad you post, with each blog you write on, with each status post on Facebook.
