I have 28 milion subscribers - How do I milk it?

by fated82 64 replies
Hi all,

I have 28 million subscribers who are normal consumers.

I want to milk them but I do not know what niche that have mass appeal that is worth sending them to.

Any recommendation?

Any niche except MMO should be good.

    Ask the person you purchased the list from?

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

    It's difficult to imagine the value in your list, which can only be assumed to be farmed emails. You could attempt to email the list (at some considerable cost) with a survey offering some incentive to complete the survey. You would want ask which topics (a,b,c etc) would they like to receive information and offers on. But overall I'd advise you don't do anything with this list as the benefits accrued will be much less than the costs of trying to make money from it.
    Maybe you could get your money back if you bought this list.

      I don't get how he would not see a decent return on 28mil, say even 0.01% converted that is still 28,000 people worth of sales now depending on what he paid for the list I would still imagine this would be profitable or am I missing something (apologies if I am fairly new to email marketing).

    "normal consumers" - what the heck are those? lol

    You might have a list of 28mil on your list, but you don't have 28mil subscribers. Unless they have some kind of reputation with you, you'll find it hard to "milk" anything out of them.

    If your looking to make any kind of money on the Internet ,please dump the idea of reaching out to those on you list , if , as I suspect they are "harvested e-mails" you will do yourself no good , and will probably get you banned from whatever e- mail service you use . Also your credibility as an on/off line marketer will go out the window .

    Promote some viral content (blog post, article, video), which appeals to the general public. You can share funny stories, videos, and anything really. Have some affiliate links sprinkled in your articles which directs to a product or service you are promoting / selling. Be creative and Good luck!

    I've been monetizing data for over 16 years. You want to promote lead generation offers that have mass appeal...

    Dating, insurance, discount offers, homeowner offers, etc, etc..

    Lead generation offers don't require a credit card / purchase to complete an offer. It's far easier to get a user from cold email to fill out a form than to make a purchase.

    However, with that much data, there is so much that goes into doing such and there are special tools / resources that you will need.

    If you are new to monetizing data and really want to get into the business (which can be extremely profitable), it is easier and cheaper to start out with fresh / targeted data and start slowly and build up good data. But if you have the budget/knowledge, nothing is stopping you from doing it.

    However, in either case, you want to be working with 3rd party data that you have the opt-in record for.

    Just out of interest after you've milked them, what do you intend to do with the milk?

    Fated82,

    I think the basic law of marketing is that you find a need and fill it.

    Begin by writing a personal email to each subscriber asking how you can help that person. That makes sense, doesn't it?

    If you write one email every thirty seconds, you can do 120 of these introductory emails every hour. And if you work steadily 12 hours each day for seven days, you can write to 10,080 subscribers each week. That's 524,160 emails per year. And if you do this for 53.4 straight years you will have task #1 completed.

    Task #2 is to compile your results and begin creating problem solving solutions for your audience.

    Good luck,

    Steve

    My goodness. How in the world did you do that? Start emailing them. Give goodies to get them to a list where you can get to know them. Then put different kinds of content on emails and ask them to "comment" This way you can put them on different lists according to their interests.
