List Building NUMBERS

10 replies
Hi guys when you talk about list building what number you talking about what is the percent of people that gonna subscribe ,I just got a 2 dollar book i put it free for subscribers i had 60 unique visitors and i didn't get one i say ONE subscriber.
What kind of numbers you talk 3000 visits a month 5000,100000,1000 and then ????
If you have 100 visitors a day there is a percent of people that gonna subscribe or not?

    It's going to vary. You have to sell them on subscribing to your list, similar to how you would sell them on buying a product.

    Bear in mind that if you bought the book to use, it may be possible that people have already seen the book before and just aren't interested. Or, maybe your pitch isn't compelling enough. There isn't enough information here to make any determination as to why your effort isn't converting.

    Plus, 60 visitors may not be a large enough sampling yet to make any kind of call. Depending on how your stats' package works, you could have bots and such counted in that mix, and automated visitors like that are never going to subscribe to anything.

        It depends on how well your stats package filters out the bots and automated visits. It could be filtering out all the bots, and you might be getting 50 real visitors. Or, it may be counting bots, and you might only be getting 2 real visitors and 48 robots.

    Dan speaks truth.

    There's also other variables to be mindful of. Does your traffic suck? No conversions. Does your squeeze copy suck? No conversions. Does the book you're giving away suck? No conversions.

    I think you get the idea.

    yes i spoke with a support representative of my web hosting he told me
    the so called 50 unique visitors are not necessary 50 guys and girls ,they can be 1 girl and 49 robots.So to say the truth i was surprised to have all those visitors since im in 12th position in google search.Figure Im a beginner i had 300 unique visitors in 10 days i said wow! 300 people REAL people visited my site.For this reason of that number of visits i only have to consider a % that are real in flesh people sitting and typing my keywords

    What are you giving away - you say a $2 book, I'm guessing this has little value to anyone, what niche are you in, does the guide offer value to a subscriber!

    How is you squeeze page worded?

    Can you show any examples so we can critique?

    For one of my sites I get around 500 unique visitors daily and between 50-80 optins for my free report!

    You gotta offer value!

    If it's too slow for you invest a little bit of money in solo ads or a free WSO or maybe some PPC...

    List building through organic traffic will take a veryyyyy long time!

    Trust me, I have a squeeze page that ranks #1 for "build a huge list" on the first page for "list building tips" and on the 4th page for "list building" and the organic traffic is sooooo sloowwwwww...

    Focus on other areas if you want fast growth, otherwise prepared to "watch paint dry"...
