My question is, is it worth while giving stuff away to build lists to try to go back to and sell, or when you build lists with folks from a free item, they are much less likely to end up parting with actual money for a product?
I am at a point where I need to generate some kind of income soon, and I thought list building may be the best way. Being on disability my income is very limited and anyone who has had to live on SSDI knows it does not pay enough to live on. Especially when you have to support a wife (who can't work because of my health problems) and disabled adult child (also unable to work). I feel that I can manage to make a go of the internet, and this was to be my first venture I think. I tried a blog but that isn't going too well so far. I plan to continue with that and hopefully make something out of it eventually, but I need to generate some cash soon. Doesn't have to be a lot, but I have to do something.
So I am asking for feedback on my list building project. Would placing some offers for free downloads of PLR eBooks on Squidoo and or any other such sites be worth the trouble? Or should I just try to sell items for $2 to $7 to build the list?
