So how do you acquire the e-mail address and names?

1. The simple way is to just ask for it.

You will be pleasantly surprised at how many people will willingly give you their e-mail address and at least their first name, which is really all that you need.

2. FREE is a basic concept of the Internet.

Your success will increase even further if you are willing to give those leaving the info something of value, such as a FREE publication, a FREE e-mail course, etc.

3. Set up a simple collection process.

Try using the simple mailto format for collecting your info for your own e-mail list.

The advantage in using this format is that you will know WHERE an e-mail request originates thus cutting down on the false entries that can be generated from a short web page form that only captures the IP address.

4. Display your request – PROMINENTLY!

However you decide to capture e-mail and name info on your web site, make certain that you display this request – PROMINENTLY – within the all important TOP 1/3 viewing area of your sites web page.

Do NOT make it so that visitors to your web site would have to scroll down the page to find where to submit their e-mail address and name.

Doing so will cause you to lose potential entries to your very own personal e-mail list.

5. PLACEMENT is vital and important!

Another important KEY to requesting an e-mail address and name from your visitors is the PLACEMENT of the request.

Not only should you display your request – PROMINENTLY – within the first viewing area of your site, it should also be located in the UPPER RIGHT section of the web page.

Trial and error has revealed that the UPPER RIGHT hand side of your web page screen is the first area that the majority of web surfers will view online.

6. Pop-Up Boxes Work!

While most of us probably feel a personal hatred for Pop-Up Ads, the fact is that studies have proven that Pop-Up Boxes that merely collect e-mail addresses and names are very effective – just the opposite of Pop-Up Ads.

Aside from all the problems facing the free flow of e-mail around the Internet, e-mail’s role as a communications tool will only continue to grow, expand and gain in importance.

E-mail Is The Foundation of ALL Communication Online!

You can communicate with people all over the globe in just a few seconds and the cost, for all intents and purposes, is virtually FREE.

Certainly there are far fewer costs involved than with other popular forms of mass communication.

That is why SPAM is proliferating at such a high Rate; Because, E-mail marketing does work!

It is essential that you learn to use it effectively for ANY online business effort that you may have planned.

Do so and you will reap the rewards.
