10 Strategies to Get Your First 100 Email Subscribers
Your #1 Focus — Build Your Subscriber List
Social networks are great places to get you known; however, it is much more difficult to build relationships. Have you seen how fast your post can be pushed down the list on most social sites?

The one major mistake of bloggers is that they will blog about marketing, then have an opt-in on writing an ebook. The blog post and opt-in are unrelated.
