Definition: Process of generating a list of email addresses for use in email campaigns.

A very important method of internet marketing, most experienced marketers say that this is the most important aspect of internet marketing..

List building is where you use some type of attraction marketing to encourage people to give you their contact details so that you can cultivate a relationship with them. Basically you are making yourself attractive to the person you are targetting so that they will want to copy what you are doing and using to build your business.

You might use a giveaway of some kind such as a newsletter, an ebook, a product or a training course, anything that will have enough perceived value to encourage people to give you their name and contact info.

Another strategy is to pick an online program that offers tools and/or resources that marketers need. If you are allowed to contact your referrals or are provided email addresses you can add to your own list, that will build it without trying to capture details on an offer page that may meet with less success.

Another method is- Connecting with people on social networks - Sometimes people do not want to purchase leads for one reason or another. It is possible to collect people and have them become your leads via social networking. It can be much more effective to connect with a real live person instead of a lead you do not know any thing about.
