    Hey guys,
    I have been reading around the forums a lot lately, and one particular thing I noticed, and have been told before, that when ever someone asks about a successful ClickBank sales tactic, they get told:

    "The money is in the list. No list, no money."

    I already tried building a list by using MailChimp, and adding a form in the sidebar widget of my site.

    You can check out my site over at the "Review Needed on my new Niche Site" thread in the Blogging section.

    But that was to absolutely no avail.
    Seriously, maybe for one week, during which it was up, it got exactly 0 subscribers.

    I have found that to me, personally, Sites which prompt you to Subscribe via a Pop-up box the first time you open them, promising you free content and stuff, seem suspicious and I never end up buying anything from them.

    So here I am, and I am asking you this:

    Can you please share so mail-list building tactics here? It doesn't have to be a 500 word essay, but just what has worked for you and what hasn't.

    What didn't work for me was a sidebar widget. And I still haven't found something that works.

    Tnx in advance to anyone who answers, and I hope this thread can be a reference to anyone who wants to know more about link building in the future.
