Are you so impatient too (or: what's really going on that you can't see)?

Dear all,

thanks for clicking on this thread.

Do you face impatience sometimes, although you know better?

And could the real problem be something you can't see yourself?

This is where I'm at:

I've started building a new website which went online about 5 months ago. It get's about 200 visitors a day. I add some content everyday, I'm active on Facebook, doing some off- and onpage SEO and - I guess most importantly - I'm building a list with a freebie and til now I've about 200 people on the list.

Since I'm not selling anything ... guess what ... I haven't made any money yet.

Why? 'Cause I've decided that all I'm going to sell are my own products. But I haven't one. I want that first own product to be good, really good. And therefore I'd have to spend an amount of time that propably will not pay off since my list is so small.

Guess what? I'm eager to grow the visits and opt-ins ... a little too eager. I'm frustrated about the results of the first five months of this new website.

And I would be more than happy if somebody could tell me what's going on with me since I have some strange feeling that I don't quite see clearly what's holding me back.

Thanks!

    One way of building your list is buying solo ads. If you are offering a freebie, you could get a lot of people to join your list. By the time, you finish creating your product you might have over 20,000 people. Then all you have to do is tell them where to buy!

    Thanks, Rodney!

    So you'd focus on building the list while starting to create a product.

    I know there are a lot of ways to build that list without spending money (which I'm short of right now) - but they all cost a lot of time when you've got to do them yourself.

    How would you prioritize 1) getting new subscribers 2) creating a product 3) building new content for the website+follow-up-mails

    Thanks again!

      Yeah, I would focus on building a list while starting to create a product.

      1) Create new content for follow-up emails
      2) Get new subscribers
      3) Create a product
      4) Create new content for website

    Are you saying you are getting just 1-1.5 subscriber each day with 200 visitors. If I were you I would have tried to offer them a different product as a Freebie a better one. I think you should be getting at-least 10-15 maybe more subscribers with that kind of traffic daily.

    Other good way is to do guest posting on high traffic blogs and then drive them to your squeeze page.

    About solo ads, you don't have to trade money or your list for the solo ads. Tell them you are going to do this thing for them or provide them a service you are good at in exchange of a soload to their list.
