I'm struggling to build a quality email list

Hi everybody,

I used Facebook ads to generate targeted leads from USA by giving them a free ebook.
However I spent a lot of money and I got a few leads in exchange.
I'd like to change my traffic source.
Could anyone tell me which traffic source is the cheapest to build a targeted list continually?
Thank you!

    it depends on whether you want to use free or paid sources.
    for free the seo is baclink remains the most reliable sources,
    while if you want to pay, the google ppc is the best is faster

    One of the cheapest methods is blogging. However, a faster method is using paid advertising. I write content and share it as much as possible. Give away a freebie which is as congruent as possible with your products and services.

    Paid traffic is expensive so you'll need a good range of products to make your money back. Either choose a product range or find cheaper traffic sources.

    Hi There,

    Have you ever tried purchasing a list?
    There will be plenty of people on here that will disagree about purchasing a list, but most of these people are just simply misinformed.
    That's not to say that buying a list is easy or easy to mail, there are many more steps that must be taken before you will be able to mail and monetize this data and list.
    With that said, there is lots of money that can still be made using this method with the right plan and process in place.
    I hope this helps.

        There are dozens of reputable list brokers. Just do some research, including looking at reviews on related forums. Google is your friend.

        Anyone who tells you that buying a list is not a viable option (depending on what you are looking for) has never used a good list in their business. Used properly, you can shave years off of how long it takes to build your business.

        Buyer beware - they are infinitely more bad list brokers in the marketplace than good ones. If a list seems to good to be true, for what you are being asked to pay, it's probably junk and keep in mind that lists that have been opted into and have verified email addresses bring top dollar. A good list is NOT cheap, but can be worth its weight in gold.

        Good luck!

    Its a bit expensive but the bright side is that you wont have to spend money on ads anymore. Hope you find it helpful.

    Try Solo Ads, i found them a lot better than Facebook Ads.

    I used clickonomy first, and then a bit of Udimi.

    But if you are unexperienced, it's better going to Warrior Forum Classified Ads, go to search and type 'solo ads'

    THEN go choose the best reviewed, check if they still responding to thread and still selling traffic.

    m90,

    The quickest & easiest (but not the cheapest) way to build an email list is solo ads. I would suggest you focus on one paid method and one free method until you are success at them. Then expand.

    What's your niche?
    How much are you currently spending?
    If you can provide any other details that would be helpful as well. The more the better.

    Bingads can be good But it really depends on several factors.

    True, some lists are crap and some quite good.

    And using PPC, (Adwords) for squeeze pages, lol, forget it. Last time l tried that, l had to create an entire site, fill it with content, and put the optin form on the last page down the bottom, or in other words, totally useless.

    Probably the only way to create a list, is to offer a cheap must sought after product and get the signup on the backend.

    And probably the one off sale, (l spent a good year or two creating lists full of great free videos, and next to zero sales) after the customer went through the sales funnel.

    Growing an email list is a common obstacle for a successful email marketing program, so how do companies go from 0-hundreds, or thousands, nurture subscribers and ultimately see growth in their business.

    Including a "subscribe" button on your website is perhaps the easiest way to get more interest in your email marketing program.

    Social media is a powerful tool when optimized to help generate leads and secure new email addresses for your email list. No two platforms are the same, so choose the social media platforms that make the most sense for your business and focus primarily on them. The "big 7" right now are Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, SnapChat, and Pinterest.

    These organic tips and tricks are a great way to start getting more leads and subscribers to your mailing list, but another thing you should never forget is an effective ad campaign. Facebook Ads are among the most successful and effective advertising strategies out there today. They are super easy to run, inexpensive, and yield great returns.

    Perhaps the biggest boost to growing subscriber base is purchasing an email list that will allow you significantly increase your email-marketing footprint and engage with brand new potential customers.

    What world is that in?

    Just like any other PPC platform, it takes time and money testing to be profitable. If it were easy and inexpensive there wouldn't be so many similar posts to this one on this and other forums.

    We often hear that quality is better than quantity. It is indeed true when it comes to the quality of building an email list. Many departments have struggled over this small issue many times. Building a quality list surely does not happen overnight, it takes time and efforts. We are here to give you some good headers to work on.


    Prove the significance-
    You really have to give a good reason as to why people should give you their email addresses.

    Focus on content-
    Believe it when it is said that human beings are judgmental. The quality and overall view of the content of your email has to be really good. Make it short and simple so that it is be able to leave an impact in less time.

    Be present on social media-
    People these days are highly influenced by social media image of any brand or service. Have a sign up page on social media platforms.

    Make easy sign up forms-
    Many times customers don't sign up because of the unnecessary lengthy sign-up forms that many forums put up. Keep it short and less time-consuming.
