Hey, I've been reading around here and I had an idea and a few basic questions. Please stick with me, I'm new, but open minded and willing to learn. So a friend and I are in the process of creating a website to sell a variety of products to a very limited niche. Before we get the website up and running we were considering having a basic page pretty much saying: "Our site is in the development stage! We can keep you posted on our progress and our products!" This is where the potential customer would include their email, gender, and location. (to have more detail in our list) HERE'S THE CATCH: I was thinking that we should include check boxes where the user can choose -Agree to our terms of service & allow (insert my website name here) to keep you up to date on products and progress. -Allow our sponsors and partners to send you offers on more great deals! *****This is where I'd make money from some of the monetizing methods I've read about on here(like promoting products and keeping a percent of the revenue, or using some PPC)***** I need this to be 100% legal and productive. Does this seem like a logical idea? Keep in mind that I don't want to turn these customers away because I want them to stick around until my site is up and running. Any advice and info is appreciated! Thanks in advance!
