Start building your personal email list in 30 minutes or less!

Email list building is still one of most effective ways to grow any business. According to the SalesHub article Is Email Marketing Dead?…

With the rise and proliferation of inbound marketing tactics, many companies are finding that email is not only an important part of their strategies, but that it is also one of the most effective. The days of spam are long over (did spam ever work?) and the rise of targeted, opt-in email marketing is proving to be a healthy contributor to a company’s overall success.

This challenge will help you get started within 30 minutes and will last 30 days. You can make it through the entire 30 days without spending a dime, so you have nothing to lose.

We will not be spending time working with fancy software or tricks, we are just going to get down to the basics of list building and get you up and running quickly. Click To Tweet

IMPORTANT: Once you complete the section on creating your hosted capture page come back here to continue.

Let’s Review…

Click “Capture Pages/Forms” then Select “Hosted Capture Pages”

You will see a new screen that includes your new Hosted Capture Page URL.

Make a note of this URL. This is the URL you will use in the next phase where we begin driving traffic to your capture page to begin building your list of subscribers!

Click on the magnifying glass next to the URL and make sure your page looks like this on the top. If not, go back through the steps above…

So far, you have created a new Autoresponder campaign, retrieved letters designed to follow up with your subscribers, and created a Hosted Capture Page that will be used to capture name and email from your visitors that also want to learn how to build their own targeted email marketing lists.

Your capture page is offering a free guide (this guide) to list building. Your letters are set up to show prospects how to get started using this guide and will be directing them to open their 30 Day Free Trial account by going to your TrafficWave.net Affiliate URL to register.

As they follow these same steps, they will be opening a new account with you as their referrer. When they see how effective this system is, it just makes sense that they will want to upgrade and that means you will begin receiving commissions on that sales volume!

So let’s get to our next step in the email list building challenge: Driving Traffic.

Driving traffic is going to be your primary focus from this point forward. Getting visitors to your capture page is how they will learn of the opportunity to learn more from you. In this case, they are going to learn how to get started building their own email marketing lists.

Let’s start with the simple stuff. Free promotion on social media:
