Hi there..
I have a WordPress site that I just finished. I have been reading and I have noticed a lot of people talking about how important it is to start a mailing list as soon as possible. I do not intend to send any marketing emails just yet and so I don’t want to invest any money on this. But I do want to start the mailing list by adding an option for people to subscribe and add their emails. Is there a way to do this for free?
Thanks

You can use this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-email-capture/ to add a capture email fields. This will let users enter their names and emails and you can start building your email list. Once you are ready to start sending emails you will then need to export the email list into email marketing service that you choose. Aweber and Mailchimp  are great choices.
