How to build your subscriber list.
Visit Google and do a search for ezine directories, the lasttime I did this there was about 88,000 listings.
This is where the work starts and where most fail, you can buysoftware to help with submitting your ezine but it costs. Ifyou want your ezine to be a success then its time to get busyand I mean busy, you should submit to at least 200!
Another way to promote your ezine is through Announcement Lists
Done correctly Announcement Lists could get you up to 800 newsubscribers per week to your automatic responder!
If you visit Google and search for ezine announcement lists andsign up to a few yourself, you will then see how it works.
Start announcing your ezine to as many annoucement lists as youcan, spend a whole day to get off to a good start!
Your aim is to have at least 3000 subscribers to your ezine, atthis point with your automatic responder you can virtually makemoney on demand.
Sign up to a few ezines yourself to get an idea of how peoplerun their ezines, this will give you an idea how to run yours.
