    Hello,

    I'm wondering if anyone would be able to throw some ideas my way. I am completely new to IM making the switch from a decent amount of success offline but looking for something more passive.

    I've done a lot of research and read a lot of posts and people seem to agree the money is in the list. The problem is I just don't know how to build one. Some of the niches I am interested in would be doomsday preppers/survival, weight loss & fitness, and cheap video games & collectable games. I have a pretty good concept of auto responders, squeeze pages, and how to set all of it up.

    But I don't understand how to gain opt-ins? Is it possible to give away real physical product lets say I wanted to have a contest give away $100-$200 worth of real product is it possible to form a list from that? Have others with a list promote my give-away? Has anyone done anything like this.

    Is it best to give away a free info product? I feel it's cheesey.

    Anyone able to either give me some guidance, point me in the right direction, or even give me some of their personal guidance via skype.

    Thanks for all your time.
    -Adam

    I would suggest browsing through all the forums (esp the Making Money sub forums) until you find one that fits what you're looking to do.

    Perhaps blogging? Or dropshopping?
