List building it is not simply the process of setting up an opt in page, giving away a free gift, and getting a bunch of people on your e-mail list. What are you going to do with the people you put on your e-mail list when you get than that? I tell you this, if you put a bunch of people in e-mail list, and you don't do anything with them, you simply have been wasting your time.
Yes, you may think that it is something cool that you can generate hundred subscribers today, but if you are not making $500 per day on those hundred subscribers per day, I frankly don't think that you are doing very much to speak of in your list building.
Use the list building as part of a greater plan, and that is to fulfill your mission statement. What is your mission statement? Your mission statement might be to make money, your mission statement might be to bring together parents of autistic children, your mission statement might be to educate about the dangers of different types of foods to heart disease.
But if you build this huge list of people who have heart disease, or people who are the parents of autistic children, or who want to make money online, and you don't know what to do with them, then your list building efforts are in vain.
So what you need to be thinking about? The first thing you need to think that is what is the purpose of your list? The purpose of your list will determine how to build your entire program, from the visitors, to the squeeze page, to the free giveaway, to the e-mail campaign itself.
