Should I have a complete site before I do email marketing?

Hi people!
Do I need to finish building my website before trading email marketing?

Please rephrase your question. I am not clear about what you are asking.

Hi Mike

If the question was do you need to have your website finished before getting your list up and running then the answer is no - pop that sign up box on there as one of the first things that you do. That way when you put new content on site you will have something else to tell your list about as well as the sales pitches ;o)

If you are talking about 'trading' emails then you do not have to have a complete website either, but be very careful who you 'trade' email lists with and the legality of it.

You also might get more replies if you change your title to something other then 'question'. Try 'Question about email marketing' or something :o)

There is no minimum number of articles when you just want to start up your site. You can get your site started with 3-5 articles if you want. However, you won't get many subscribers if you don't have a lot of content on your site. Just make sure you keep updating and refreshing the content, and try to add more articles as soon as you can.

personally I never see a site as "finished". get the email opt in on there asap. I generally set that up as soon as I have one or two pages on a site. some of my sites all I have on them is a squeeze page.

If what you mean by "complete" site is something with a good header, a domain, nice layout and one or two articles, then yes, you need to have that before putting in your opt-in forms/boxes. Make sure that when you do put in your opt-in form there, you have a "bait" ready like an eBook or report so you can get visitors to sign up.

You can start with building up your email list as soon as possible. It can be through a blog or site that you are just starting out.

I'm thinking that you could... and this is a theory cause I have not tried it, but I think people do it....

Technically you could put up a squeeze page that is simply an opt-in to your newsletter. The way you drive traffic to that opt-in page is varied of course but... You could get people to subscribe to your newsletter through a single squeeze page.

Then if you wanted to build a site around the content of your newsletter you could. :)

That really seems rather simple. But, the money is in the list right?

It is so it's best to get your newsletter series off the ground as soon as possible. I have't tried just have a squeeze page and then building a site from it but from the way you describe it, it sounds feasible. I usually have a site up with a few articles and an opt-in box.
