I'm new to affiliate marketing. I have been inspired to jump in to this business by a native of my country, that had started from scratch and created his wealth that now he's living a luxury life in Thailand. (Cheers for him for making it by the way)
I just want to be like him or more, so I decided to get started. I watched a lot of courses, read a bunch of articles about all areas of affiliate marketing.
the strategy that's very effective in my opinion is email marketing. As it's a very precious asset once you have a good quality and amount of subscribers.
I have chosen my ESP (GetResponse), created my website and embedded the opt-in form in it, and I'm looking for a way to get quality traffic now. I know that there are various ways, but the most effective are the paid ones through google adwords, facebook, bing ads and others.
So my question is, Can anyone with an experience in quality list building tell me how much time, effort and money would it take to have a 1000 subscribers ? Thanks
