My Top 5 Ways to Build and Email List on a Budget
1. How to Build an Email List using a Free Offer
If you expect people to simply just opt into your email list …
… you’re mistaken. They’re already bombarded daily by information they never asked for.
Give your email list something of true value. Who’s in your target market?
Can you create a short eBook (10-20 pages) that solves a problem?
Can you record a mini video series (5 -7 videos) that shows them how to do something?
Can you record an audio that has them coming back to your site asking for more?
Of course you can!
Use your imagination, but take your time to created your Free Offer since this will be your hook in getting new traffic and subscribers.

There are three places you should be capturing your visitors.
Place your email opt in widgets at the top sidebar of your page (above the fold), at the bottom sidebar and at the end of each post.
These have been proven to be the most effective places.
3. How to Build an Email List using a Squeeze Page
A squeeze page is essentially a landing page that has only one purpose …
… and that’s to get your visitors to opt in.
What are the main elements that make a Squeeze page successful?
A clean look and feel, attention grabbing headline, bulleted benefits and a call to action.
There shouldn’t be any other information on you squeeze page other than these elements.
4. Building an Email List through Article Submissions
If you’re actively blogging on a daily basis …
most likely you’re already thinking about or have submitted articles to databases such as Ezine Articles, Squidoo, etc.
Instead of backlinking to your blog, place a backlink to your squeeze page at the bottom of the article.

… setup your page so that they land on a welcome page instead. This is essentially a squeeze page on facebook.
