Recently I signed up at safe swaps and ordered a couple solo mailings to start building an email list. I received 411 clicks resulting in 132 subscribers, so that works out to be a conversion rate of about 32%.
I was wondering what kind of opt-in rates others were getting who are also using safe swap/solo mailings to build their list? I guess 32% is a decent starting point, but I definitely plan on doing some tweaking to increase that number.
Here's the link to my squeeze page if anyone is interested in taking a look. I'd appreciate any feedback or suggestions.
As soon as someone subscribes to my list, I send them directly to an OTO selling squeeze page templates for $9.95 since this offer is directly related to the list building freebie I'm giving away.
My conversion here was awful, as I only made one sale. However, the sales page I was using was the pre-designed html template that came with the plr product. So in retrospect, probably wasn't the best idea to use that as is.
I decided to stick with the same OTO offer, but re-did the sales page using optimize press. I think it looks MUCH better now and hopefully my conversion will increase. I have another solo coming up tomorrow, so it will be interesting to see what happens.
Anyway, just wanted to share my results in case anyone else out there has just started solo mailing campaigns or is thinking about starting to build their list.
Feel free to leave any feedback or share your own results!
