So i am rather new to this method of marketing, & i am using Facebook ads to drive people to an opt-in page where they give me their email in exchange for a free checklist.
What i have noticed though is that i was getting a good amount of bad emails. I installed a plugin to block bad emails, but now even the emails i get, when my auto-responder (MailChimp) sends out the welcome message & the other emails i have in sequence, they are not being opened. I'd say about 1 in 10 will actually open the welcome email.
My list is very small, so i am still building it, but i just wanted to know a few things moving forward.
Question 1, is driving traffic from Facebook to an opt-in page, then marketing to subscribers a good way to build a list of people that will open your emails?
Questions 2, How many emails should i have on my list before i can really know whats working or not? My list is small & i don't want to jump to conclusions too fast.
And as a side note, i am using this method for affiliate marketing & to also potentially create my own product in the niche.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks !
