Over the past 2 years, I've been working in the franchise lead generation space (i.e. finding people who are interested in opening a franchise business and selling that information to smaller franchises who want to try selling their franchise concept to them).
I've now accumulated a list of about 70k people in this niche. I've done a lot of research but have yet to see another person talk about this 'niche'. I'm not even sure if this even counts as a niche. I now want to focus on monetizing this list using some good old email marketing, perhaps with some autoresponder automation, but I'm having a hard time thinking of monetization methods.
My email open rate hovers at about 20% and the CTRs (% of the open rate) are around 3.5%. All the people on my list are opt-in and I send 1 email/week as a franchise industry update. I've never tried to sell anything.
Here's what I know about the list:
Email, Name, Liquid Capital. And about 1/3 of these people are business owners, but I don't know which ones...
I would LOVE to get some help with brainstorming. I was actually on BHW first last week, but those guys are a bunch of morons, trying to sell me stuff and steal my list in such obvious cons -_-
Hoping Warrior Forum is different!
