O.k., so build stinking list. Well, it's not that easy. You have to be patient. And patience is something that we all probably need to practice more diligently.
But think of it this way. While you are taking time to build your list, try to learn about what your current subscribers would like to see offered. Create a short online form asking a series of questions related to your site or product, and email your subscribers asking them to simply go and fill out form. This way you can deliver more relevant information, build trust with members of your list, and learn how to tailor your periodic newsletters.
Use time to understand market trends. What is currently working to bring in more site traffic? Are there particular strategies others are using to convert more sales? Any changes in search engine protocol? What can you do to bring in more subscribers?
Take time to investigate and learn, while building your list. Then, once you have several hundred subscribers you will be set to reap rewards. It doesn't come before, but only after you have built and cultivated a list of people who trust your judgment. Do it right and success is waiting for you!
