3. Building a List

Another great way to make money with a website is to build a list, by capturing your visitors email addresses. By doing this it allows you to keep in contact with your visitors. By giving them value and solutions to their problems you become the person to go to in this field.

The easiest way to capture an email from a visitor is by giving them something in return for their email address. In this case I put together a small e-book about colic and different ways to ease colic. They got the e-book for free by leaving their email address. This way I could continue staying in contact with the visitor.

The easiest way to stay in contact and to collect emails is by using a program /software that can help you with this. Personally I use Aweber and have done so for years. It is easy to use and it keeps track of your emails, follow up emails and broadcast emails to your different lists.

Veronica, I feel like I've stumbled on a gold mine! Thank you for this. I already have a product and website but you've made me see that the skill I need to gain is learning how to drive traffic there. I'm thinking I'll do a review site for now - to learn the ropes. Thanks for opening my eyes.

I'm an artist selling my paintings so I'm not sure if it solving any problems for anyone. Unless the buyer wants to know more about the subjects that inspire my paintings. Then I guess I will be solving the issue of not being able to understand Sacred Geometry.
When you research Sacred Geometry the information on websites might be hard for the most people to understand. Even I have trouble understanding because the language is so advanced. It's like trying to read and comprehend The Oddesy without any help.
But is this a valid problem that needs to be solved? And who exactly is my customer?

I believe you are solving a problem if you are selling art. If I have dead space on my wall, I'm looking to fill that void. You are helping me solve that problem.
Each piece has a story behind it...
Have you sold pieces?

I have sold 2 paintings so far and given 2 more away for birthdays, that's the reason why I'm here so I can sell more of my paintings. I guess I was thinking a bit too hard about the problem part of the equation lol! I keep forgetting that art is such a simple pleasure because my paintings are inspired by something not so simple.

Hi I am a beginner and this is my first lesson. Thanks for the information. My question is I see "Tagged" with key words on the side of the lesson. I have checked them out and found more quality information but should I just be concentrating on the lesson for now and go back to the "Tagged items later?

Hi Ed. You don't need to worry about those tags. Those are just there to help categorize what the lesson is about. For your official training I suggest you start up at the green tab the says 'Get Started Here'.

Here is the link that will take you directly there. Great to see you making progress.
This is by far the best article I have ever read on the topic at hand. I am ever so grateful for your experience, determination, and willingness to help out the Wealthy Affiliate community. Especially with myself only having been used the site for a few hours now as a new member to the internet marketing community.
