By this time tomorrow you could be building your List (at last)!

Yesterday I had the house to myself at last, and so I took the opportunity to read a free ebook I'd downloaded a while back. The book promised that it was easy to build a mailing list, and that sounded good to me. When I was a TrafficWave member I made a start on that, but the $18/month got a bit expensive and so I kissed that goodbye.

For the last few years I've kept a contact list manually, in Excel. When I wanted to do a mailout I used a little program I'd purchased for $10 -- quite good, allowed personalisation etc, but was slow and fiddly to use. Generally quite a mission. And after every mailing I'd have the inevitable "bounce-backs" to take care of. I took care of the occasional "unsub" request manually, and there were not many, so at least that meant my emails weren't annoying or too frequent!

Well to my surprise, the free ebook lived up to its promise, and after just a few hours work I now have a free autoresponder (fully featured) with some emails loaded, and several squeeze pages to use. I'm on my way! My favorite squeeze page is added to my rotator, andI am ready for the flood of prospects I will no doubt get! Taking it step by step was the key -- I am only moderately tech-savvy, but I found it a breeze.

If you'd like to take a look at the ebook that was so helpful to me, here is the link:
