50,000 Leads To add to Aweber How long?

8 replies
Hello there warriors

Soon, I would be purchasing a lead list for some bucks, now my question is how long does it usually takes to get all the list of subscriber be approved? Any experience out there.

I hope you guys could share some thoughts here, I don't really have idea as this was my first to add list in aweber.

Thank you.

    Have fun getting banned at Aweber, and all the other subsequent ESP companies that you bring your 'bought' list to.

    In case you don't know: Don't buy those email lists. There's no differentiating you from those spammers who sends those scammy 'viagra' pills.

    Learn about permission marketing, and learn the right way to go about in getting permission from others to email to them.

    Agreed. If you haven't bought the list yet, think twice.

    Not only that but the list you have is most likely a list of old email account (a famous ploy of people on fivverr) which will shoot up your bounce rate and once it hits over 20% you are banned from aweber.

    Don't buy the list. Even if you were to add them to your Aweber autoresponder, you would only be able to add around 10 subscribers until finally Aweber sends out a "confirm your request for information" email for each name that you add after the first 10.

    There are autoresponders available (not Aweber) that allow you to import an entire list. But usually these are your own subscribers already and you're just transferring them from one autoresponder provider to another.

    But even if you're able to import a list that you bought... there are other major questions to think about, and some have been mentioned already. A couple of others to watch out for are:

    1) How was the list put together? There are ways to build a list for as little as $0.02 per 'non-responsive' subscriber ... and a lot of these methods are a waste of time and money if you don't know any better.

    2) What's your goal in buying the list in the first place? If it's to monetize them by emailing them offers... then you really need to do your due diligence. Because if they're old, non-responsive, freebie seekers, scam email lists, etc. then you pretty much wasted your money.

    3) One more thing... IF this list you are buying is a responsive buyer's list, then the list owner can make instant "push-button" profits almost every time he sends an email right? So why would the owner sell it to you in the first place? Again, I think you'll be wasting your money.

    Best is to build your own subscriber list properly... the only true shortcut is learning how to build your list faster and effectively with all the list building methods available.

    You have definitely picked the wrong autoresponder, Aweber are very anti-spam and rightly so.

    It's the reason why so many of our email get inboxed, because they are so anti-spam.

    Be very careful.

    First of all you should wipe Aweber out of your plans. They won't want to have anything to do with your list. In fact most of the reputable autoresponder companies will make every person you add confirm their email address before you can send them anything. This is to help protect their deliverability rates.

    You need to question any autoresponder company who would allow you to import a list like this. They can't be too worried about their deliverability rates or your emails just get sent from servers that have terrible deliverability rates.

    If you are serious about making money on line don't try and cut corners... build your list from scratch. Would you gel well with someone who started emailing you out of the blue? I don't think so.
