Warm up for an email marketing software ready website

First step will be building a WordPress website and publishing your contents. Before the first website public presentation you will configure the WordPress opt-in widget for newsletter subscription. While you write and publish your contents, as time goes by, new subscribers will join the mailing list. Please pay attention on the fact that these subscribers are people interested in your contents: they are waiting for your words and they trust your newsletters.
