    This is really nothing ground breaking, but I tried it out and it works great.The more time you invest the better your results will be.I only did this for 2 days 1 hour each day and so far I've got 180 subscribers for my niche with 2 hours work..

    What you will be doing is using Google Alerts to build your list.

    First thing you need is a domain for whatever niche you are targeting.On your domain you want to put a squeeze page to capture name and email.I used a free month trial of icontact and set it up on my squeeze page.Theres tutorials on Youtube how to set that up.Also there free squeeze pages just do a google search.

    After your site is setup go to Google Alerts and put in your niche keyword and select "all results" and "as they happen".This will give you the maximum results.You can go to Google keyword planner and download a list of keywords for your niche to use.

    It's a good idea to make a Facebook account too because it makes it easier to signup so you can comment.

    Go to each site on Google alerts and leave a comment with your link with "http://" so it's clickable.Most of the places you will leave a comment you will need to signup but its worth it.Alot of the sites have Signup with Facebook or Twitter which is really fast.

    Put your keyword list in a notepad and spend as much time as you want putting each keyword into Google Alerts and commenting on every link.Be creative with your comment and don't make it spammy.Talk like a real person providing value with your comment.Your results will be better.You can use the same comment on each site.Just keep your comment in a notepad.

    You will start getting subscribers within the first 10 minutes.

    You can also use this method on Google News with fresh news stories published today.Works just as good.It also helps to have a good looking squeeze page too.There are some good ones you just have to search them.

    I only used one keyword in my niche to get 180 subscribers.Im still getting subscribers and I haven't messed with it in over a month.You can download 800 keywords on google keyword planner and use each keyword.So you can see how powerful this is.

    Like I said this is nothing ground breaking but it works great.You can even outsource the work if you want to go big time.

    Try it out and let me know how it works for you.

    Simple and evidently quite effective, although time consuming. Any thoughts on automating the process?

    I thought about how to automate it but it would be hard.Because it would have to be able to create accounts on different platforms and post the comment and sometimes solve a captcha.

    The only way to automate it is to hire people to post for you.It would cost money but cheaper then buying a ragged out list from somebody.

    You could outsource to someone for like $4/hr. If they don't speak good English just give them a list of responses for them to copy/paste. I could see where this would be more effective than solo ads and probably cheaper.

    If you choose an evergreen niche, your assistant would never run out of alerts to respond to.

    I think the software BuzzBundle does something like this. It's not Google Alerts orientated, but the same concept.

    iContact has a limit to 500 subscribers on the free edition.
    Can we upgrade to paid monthly version once we hit the 500 subscribers limit?

    I just used icontact because i've used them before and it was user friendly.

    You can upgrade with icontact anytime you want.

    If you want to collect emails yourself somebody shared "interspire Email Marketer" on here awhile back.It will do everything icontact does but with no limits.The only limit is your hosting company's limit on how many emails you can send daily.But i'm sure 500 daily with any host will be no issue.Just talk to your hosting company first so you don't lose your account.

    What are the uses for such lists after you aquire them? Would you send them emails promoting products or PPC campaigns or drive them to your website?

    what do you offer them on you squeeze page? how do you get them to opt in your list? i don't see traffic just giving their email and name just because you put a form in front of them.

    You have to make it creative and make them want to give there name and email.Use a tracking program and rotate different variations of your squeeze page to test..After 2 weeks keep the one Thats giving you the most opt-ins.

    Also offer something for free..That always works.
