    Hello.

    You need to research and ensure that you are offering
    products that people want to buy, not just things that you
    think you can make money from. Ask yourself what you
    are offering, why you are offering it, and what benefit
    will the buyer derive from it.

    Right now, during this pandemic, people just are not
    going to buy things that they don't really need or that
    does not provide them any benefits.

    You are on the right track, just refine what you are doing.

    How did you get them to join, what were you offering them, how were you doing it (what's the landing page like)?

    You need to think in terms of giving people real value and helping them and not so much on making sales ,of course its more dificult but this its the way .Also in this times of corona virus sales are very low in this moment ,people are afraid to buy unnecesary things as they are afraid of a crisis ,their job ,their money etc .Me also i see huge drop in sales like everithing its dead .Also havinf 700 people and sending them some offers after 7 days its not necesary to make a sale .Continue to work ,give more value .Some people think that real succes its growing your list as big as you can and then if you send them affiliate offers ,boom you are rich .Its not this way you need to make people trust you ,see you as someone who deliver them real value .You can make more with a 1k list if they like you ,than 10k list that dont know so much about you

  • Hi, bravo for building a list of 700 opt-ins via PPC. This is no mean feat.

    Your 1st 7 days click-thru will definitely be high, who could resist a freebie ? Subsequently, your offer has to be something that is relevant and not too sale-sy and pushy. But the key is you have to offer them value-added info on that niche that you are positioning yourself in. You have to offer something that is of value to your subscribers of your list. It does not work by offering them one sales product to another. The key is you have to nurture the list and build a relationship with them.

    Just be patient and remember to give. When you give your knowledge and values to your subscribers without expectations, the rest will fall in place - eventually.

    Hope my opinion counts and helps in one way or the other :-)

    Try to send them to a free trial/free training, free webinar of something with paid at the end of it right from the beginning. Or try it now and all the unopens just flush them and keep moving forward.


    If it is helpful, even with paid on the end absolutely nothing wrong with that strategy.

    700 is a small list (not trying to be offensive).

    What is your email series like? can you explain your emails and when you give compared to when you pitch?

    you'll get alot of help here, but we'll need more info. Just a few questions

    What is your niche?
    Is your ad from PPC congruent with your landing page?
    Landing page?
    What are you saying in your follow up series? You should usually RECOMMEND products as opposed to trying to sell people something.

    here to help, but need more info to give more input.
