      One good way to start is if you already have some clients, you can send them an email and ask them if they would like to receive your free newsletters.

      There are several ways to do this. The easiest method is to set up a form on your website. The interested clients can just fill out the form with their names and email addresses if they wish to receive your newsletters. You can use these newsletters to let them know about any special deals and new products you have. Sometimes, people attract clients by offering them a sign-up gift. Here are a few ways to help you build an email list for internet marketing:

      Make the Sign-up process easy

      Keep in mind that people are always in a hurry. They will not have the time to sign-up for your free newsletter if the process is too long and complicated. Keep it simple. The only details you should ask for signing up are the names and email addresses. This way people can sign-up within just a few seconds. The email marketing services you choose will offer a code for your website. You just have to place that code on your main page and you’ll have your sign-up box.

      Guarantee their privacy

      Nowadays everybody is trying to avoid spam and keep their information private. You should guarantee that their private details or email addresses will not be shared. Let them know that you will use their emails only for sending your newsletter. This is a great idea to gain their confidence and you can do this by informing them how often you will be sending out emails or newsletters.

      Ask for permission

      Always ask for permission before you add someone in your email list. For example if you already have a client base you should send them an email and ask for their permission to add them to the list. This email should inform them about your newsletter. Let them know what information you are planning to send them. Try to provide a link. People will click on the link only if they agree to receive your newsletters. Request them to reply to your email.

      Offer a sign-up gift

      People love to receive gifts. You can offer a free e-book or a discount. This will help you attract a lot of people to your email list.

      An effective email marketing campaign can help you sell more products. Here’s what you can do for an effective email marketing plan:

      Try to stick to one message

      Try not to put your entire business into one email, as you might risk losing the attention of the reader. Concentrate on just one main message at a time. For example, talk about a new product, or a charity you’re giving to over the holidays.

      Personalize your emails

      Always mention the name of the recipient in your emails. This will make your message appear more personal.

      Communicate with your readers

      If your business is small enough, make sure you have someone on staff who can answer your customers’ emails. Some people might send you messages with various questions. If you communicate with your customers on an individual level, your sales are much more likely to boom.

      Call to action!

      Your newsletter should always contain a call to action. Tell them to buy now! Click here! Act now! A good idea would be to place the call to action in the beginning and the end of the email.

      Use an attractive email template

      An email template can make your emails look more professional. You can use various fonts and colors. Remember to test the email before sending it out to others.

      Keep track on your stats

      By keeping track on your stats you can check how effective your email marketing campaign is at any given time. This will help you decide if you need to change something or if your present campaign is actually doing what you need it to do.

      There are many services that offer email lists for sale. There are some inherent issues with buying and sending out bulk mails to rented email lists:

      1. You would first need to verify that the email addresses you are buying are in fact active. Only email database services that have existed for some time, and that have a good reputation, can offer that kind of reassurance.

      2. Secondly, you would need to comply with the emailing laws of the country where your mail server is located.

      3. Thirdly, you should offer a one click opt-out option, possibly at the top of all your mail outs, to ensure recipients can easily unsubscribe from your newsletter.

      4. And fourth, you should include a list-unsubscribe header (this header instructs email providers, eg Gmail, to send an unsubscribe request to your list-unsubscribe email address whenever a user clicks on the email provider's default "unsubscribe" or "mark as spam" buttons).

      Do net expect too much from paid lists, unless they cost an arm and a leg. Responsive and targeted lists are very expensive (around $2-$5 per contact). Mailing out to a very large list of millions of emails is often not a comparable substitute by any stretch. Developing an effective landing page and using Google Adwords and other ppc services to attracted targeted traffic can, in most cases, be much more effective in terms of cost, results, and speed of execution.
