one of the best ways is to look at other sites within your niche and look at how they are doing it. I do it differently in different niches. However, the basics are the same.
Create a simple product that helps solve a problem within your niche. you can do a short report or ebook, or do a 7 day :mini course, where you teach people how to solve a specific problem.. then offer it to them in exchange for them signing up to your email list.
set up an account with Aweber or another autoresponder service, and follow their steps to set up your newsletter sequence and sign up forms. (aweber has a step by step setup wizzard that walks you through everything to set up the list, create your messages, and create a sign up form to add to your site. )
the AB and AJP courses both teach you how to do all of that and set it up. it takes a lot of steps and I can't go through all of it in a simple forum post, but the basics are pretty simple.
You can use PLR products for your giveaway, although most of them aren't well written and you will want to do some rewriting to make it unique. I find cheap PLR stuff for just a few bucks, and it shortcuts the content creation process tremendously...
Really, there are loads of ways to set it up differently and it depends on your niche, and your own personal taste. best thing to do is look at what others in your niche are doing, and how they set theirs up. once you decide which way you want to do it, its easire to find out HOW to do it.
