Can anyone estimate the value of a forex email list?

by 9 comments
Hi I was wondering if someone with direct experience can tell me approximately how much a forex opt-in email list with 15000 subscribers would cost if I wanted to purchase one? I know there's multiple factors involved but I am just looking for a ball park estimate. Thanks

    $5 - $5,000?

    Your question is to broad so we can't really tell you how much.

    Lists normally depend on age and how many people have them.

    The older the list, the less it will cost because it's probably dead.

    A new list with hundreds of owners will be worthless because they are all spamming it.

    Alexa's right, I'm a pro in that niche, buying leads is worthless, you need to be an expert and build a relationship over time, years, as with any valid approach. I like that price/value insight, exactly right. Alexa's posts have always been among the most valuable of any here at wf, because she's right in what she says virtually all the time wtg

    You would be best selling it with the site they opted in from. As a list alone (as has been pointed out) is pretty worthless. However a list of buyers/free opt ins with the site they opted in at would be worth something.

    You could then value your site & list on the basis of your last 12 months revenue.

    I appreciate the response from everyone that replied. Is it even possible to legally send to a list that you purchased? I would assume people would need to opt-in to a new email address if using something like Aweber.

    I think it's better if you buy solo ads, rather than buying the list itself. It's cheaper and more effective.

    I wouldn't go so far as to call the activity itself a "hoax", though undeniably the proportion of people taking up forex trading who'll ever make consistent profits is extremely small (just as is true of internet marketing, of course).

    But I do think it can fairly be said that many of the products designed to appeal to them are "hoaxes".

    Exactly. The problem is that they're not just backtested but backfitted.

    It's very easy to develop signal-based "indicators for Metatrader", or whatever, which have made steady profits over the previous 6 months, when the software you use to create them has the previous 6 months' charts in front of it, but unfortunately that doesn't relate to their ability to make profits over the next 6 months.

    My father has been a professional forex-trader since before I was born, and I myself typically do about 15-20 smallish, leveraged currency trades per month myself, and have done so for several years. But I have yet to find products in the "forex niche" that I'd be willing to promote as a marketer. It's pretty annoying for me, because I'm an article marketer with genuine, successful personal experience in the forex niche, and could easily start a niche site for it and write about it from my own experience, but there's nothing I can ethically and morally sell.
