2. Design a Professional Website or Blog

To keep up with the times, placing a professional video on your squeeze page may very well increase the number of visitors subscribing - so keep this in mind.
Set up an autoresponder and design a series of emails tofollow up with your subscribers. Build your relationship with them first and let them get to know who you are before you start selling to them.
