been building a list from the start. Don't make the same mistake that many thousands of
people have made before you.
For those of you who are just branching out into Internet Marketing a list is where people
give you their email address, usually in return for something free. You are then able to
stay in contact with that person and send them offers.
Sound easy? If you ask many internet marketers how many people they have on their list
you'll be surprised to here that many only have 20, 50 or 100 people and that took them a
year or so to get. Yet look at the 'Big Boys' the 'Gurus' and they have thousands of people
gladly signing up.

but with the same illusion of quick riches and overnight success. They are sucked in with
dreams of instant riches with little to no work, yet in reality the real picture is very, very
