Can I do anything with only 50-100 targeted subscribers?

14 replies
I've been trying to build a targeted good email list, all the people on my list have verified their email, so that helps weed out bad emails.

I started last week, I now have 54 Email subscribers in the Gaming Niche, they're mostly males 18-50 mostly... I mean around 65% are males 18-24

Thing is, this list is building slowly and I know 100 email subscribers will be small, but I need money...

Can I even do anything with 100 email subscribers? Can I even make some decent cash? I mean a few hundred a week might be way too much to ask for but damn, I need something.

Can anyone give me some advice? Tell me where I'm at right now, how far do I have to go? Is 100 subscribers way too little?

    It's a great that you have started building an email list. We all need to start somewhere and 100 subscribers is a good start.

    Can you make money of this list? You could, but it depends on how much money do you want to make. Always do the math and run the numbers..... Remember the golden rule of making money. Men lie, Women lie, numbers don't.

    • If you sell 100 email subscribers a $1,000 dollar product and lets say you have a very high 5% conversion rate of your list, that banks you 5*1,000 = $5,000
    • If you sell the same list a $10 dollar product that with the same conversion rate that's 5*10 = $50.
    • To make $5,000 with a $10 product you would need 10,000 subscribers. 5% of 500 is 5000 so, 500*10 = $5,000

    So how much you make really comes down to your conversion rate, what $ value products you can sell them and how big your list is.

    Have an income goal (think big), keep the math in mind and work to build your list accordingly.

    If anyone reading this didn't understand the math, make sure you do or else you are probably never going to make a lot of money.

    Good luck!

    Nope ...100 is not small to start. It is not about quantity, it's about quality. Just be prepared for unsubscribes & take them positively & tweak your mails accordingly.

    How did you get ur list? Freebie seekers or Buyers? Depending on how you got them, your results might differ. Jst take that into consideration when pitching a product or offer.

    100 subscribers is good enough to start. However it all depends on how much your list is engaged or rather how you are engaging with your list.
    My suggestion is not to spam them with only offers. Mix your emails - some emails give them some information/content, other emails do a promotion of the games you are trying to sell, some emails should be soft-sell etc.

    I've just read many case studies from different people (With solo ads).You won't believe it but I red these case studies
    1- 17 sales with less then ~198 clicks
    2- 4 sales with almost 40 clicks
    3- 3 sales with less then 40 clicks
    Yes, it true and is possible if you've targitted traffic (Which you've ))
    A few days ago i also see a vendor on this forum saying one of his affiliate has ~400 clicks but no sale but other affiliate have ~35 clicks and 3 sales.
    So, build relationship and trust with your list and get the most out of it!
    Enjoy!!!

      Any solo ad testimonial you read is a lie...
      You will get more satisfaction burning hundred dollars bills in lighter fluid then watching bot clicks from solo ad providers that never convert.

    I've read a ton of threads like this over the years. "How many subscribers should I have on my list", "I have a 5,000 email list and made $10. Should I go for a list of 500,000?" and so on.

    Until you start seeing you email list as PEOPLE you will always be disappointed.

    Simple question. If you had a list with ONE email on it. Would you send your 'list' an offer?

    If not, why not. Your first subscriber is just as likely to buy as your 100,000th

    Think about it. Its not the size of your list, its how well its segmented and how well you target your emails and offers.

    I am going to be honest with you. Its great to get that first 100 leads. Its a real milestone. But if you want to make job replacing income. You will need THOUSANDS of list members.

    You can do it good luck.

    Find out what their #1 problem/pain is (by asking them).. and solve it (for $). Start writing to your list. Make blogposts answering their questions..

    and start doing some product validation. 50+ subs in a week is a great start. If you can keep up that pace, you'll have a size-able list very quickly. Get to know their hopes and fears, by staying in touch and you'll figure out how to monetize for the lon-grun.

    Instead of trying to get them to buy products, focus on promoting email submit cpa offers instead. These have high conversion rate.

    Also, getting a lot more subscribers daily is not rocket science.

    It is important to build a relationship with your list audience. The more trust you build the higher your conversion will be!
    Try to offer them free content that could be interesting for them or tell them something about yourself. I think there are many different possibilities

    From your thinking i see your are disperate for cash and its not good ,i dont blame you we all are in some moment .This its a little number and its hard to say .My advice its to give them as much value as you can ,instead of focusing of seling ,if you just want to sell they will see that and they dont like it and they will unscribe

    Not bad at all for starting a list but the two 'bold' phrases don't belong. One week is not enough to make money with a list unless they are signing up for your new product launch. What you have is a good start.

    If you need money badly, much easier to get a job for a bit than it is to create a profitable list in a couple weeks....
