Having an effective auto responder is key to provide automated follow up messages to your subscribers. You then will need and enticing Capture page to attract your buyer. Try and make it short at to the point and be creative and original in your approach. Space your follow up series   correctly so as not to bombard your subscribers with a lot of mails till they eventually unsubscribe from your list and last but not least your will in deed need targeted  daily traffic. Without daily traffic your business or list will not grow.

One primary think you will be sure to need is a quality autoresponder to do you followup messages. Then seek out an effective squeeze page or capture page that will entice others to want to join your business.  The other key thing then you will need it targeted daily traffic being feed to you audience. These are some key indicators you will need when building your list.

A capture page.

Linked to offer or video of you which is called sandwich page.

An auto responder ie aweber, mailchimp, icontact...

800 link number for them to hear you and what your business will do for them.

live calls to a community a plus!

As others have said....

You need a great squeeze page..focus on having very little copy..don't try to sell from the page itself that's what the follow up is for. Test, track and tweak the page through split testing to see which one pulls in the most leads.

Test pages using an opt in bribe (freebie) or none..

A good autoresponder like Aweber, Trafficwave, Active Campaign etc. will suffice.

Traffic, Traffic, Traffic... from solo ads, ppv, social, videos, bogs, articles...offline etc.

I think retargeting though will soon be the "new" autoresponder.. The ads that follow you everywhere like Amazon does big time...

Everyone else already included the basics, such as an opt-in page and traffic, but I'd like to emphasize this:

Quality EMAILS!

If you can't keep people on your list then you haven't built a list. You need to know how to keep your subscribers engaged with your emails and get them to sign up for the offers that you're promoting.

This is not an easy task for the majority of newbie marketers, especially those that struggle with writing. 

If you don't know how to write sales copy and have no experience in writing marketing emails, then I would suggest that you either use email marketing PLR or you outsource the job to a writer.

Almost anybody can get signups but if you take a closer look, the marketers who are KILLING IT are the ones that really know how to sell to their subscribers with high quality content.
