20 replies
In your opinion is 300 people added to my list in 2 weeks a good rate or is that too slow?

Thats around 20 people per day...

Just need to figure out if I need to pick up the pace...

Thanks,
Robert

    There's nothing bad in it.

    You've aquired(that's how it's spelled?)a list of 300 potential customers, and that's an achievement.

    Start building relationships and monetizing your list.

    Aim higher and your next post will be about 1000 subscribers

    See you there,
    Tom Yevsikov

    Robert,

    It depends on the type subscribers you have. If they are know buyers, even 300 is enough to earn profit if you offer a quality service or product they are interested in.

    If they are "lookee-loos" , you could have a list of 3,000 and you would never earn a dime.

    The same goes the speed of your list growth. Depends on marketing, demand for your subscriber sign-up offer, etc. There really is no right or wrong growth rate. Focus on the quality of the subscriber.

    Best regards...

    If you have qualified your members before sign up 300 members is a great asset. There is always room to ramp up but do not let a high number become your obsession. Quality of leads is a lot more important.

      Thanks guys for the advice but I'm wondering what's the best way to make sure they are "quality subscribers"? I figure if they have opted into my list based on some product or information I have given them that is related to a niche, then they should be quality subcribers as long as I stay within that niche when making offers...

      For instance, if I make a list based on the gambling niche (which this is just an example I don't have this list)

      Then as long as I send my list gambling related offers, I should in theory have higher conversions than if I randomly sent them some weight loss product or something. Is that correct?

        You build relationships with them and you presell ALOT.

        Doesn't matter if they are buyers or "freebie seekers", you need to build relationships.

        2. to determine the quality of the subscriber, you need to actually promote to him a related offer

        could be yours could be an affiliate, just make sure it's quality.

        What is a subscriber worth if he doesn't end up buying for you?

        $0, nothing.

        Potentially, he does...but as long as he did not buy from you, he has no worth

    Your definitely off to a good start but never be satisfied. Always try to get more people on your list, but just as importantly actively try to improve your open rates, click rates, and sales. If you can turn more subscribers into buyers you can make more with a smaller list.

    You'll get as many answers as there are marketers One camp will say number and the other will say quality. Your test is how you use the list, how you communicate with them, what your plans are and if those leads fit your plans.

    It's no so much about the 300, so much as the quality of the 300.
    Once you've nailed down a source for high quality leads, find a way to scale up your opt ins.

    Totally agree with Hotlinkz. I would rather have 300 warm subscribers than 10,000 who don't have a whit of interest in what I'm doing. The rate of growth isn't nearly as important as the quality of it. Keep providing results in advance to your IDEAL subscribers.

    20 people a day as long as they are targeted and you're not having to spend 10 hours a day with manual tasks getting those subscribers then it's pretty good

    the way you have to look at things is in terms of conversions

    if you have a low ticket product around $10 that converts at 10% then 20 opt ins will bank you $20 per day on autopilot

    that is 60 sales = $600 per month just in low ticket sales and this does not include any upsells that you sell either

    20 subs a day is a good start but i would be focusing on increasing those numbers as much as you can :-)

    Always constantly add more. It pays off in the end.

    Cultivate the relationship. How? Make it a 2-way street as much as you can instead of always you talking to them. Ask for feedback. Actually respond to the emails they send you. It's time well invested.

    You're never going to get a high % of people on your list to buy what you sell. The trick is to grow the number who will buy by both growing your list and doing things other list owners aren't doing to strengthen the relationships you begin with those who do buy. Make an impression. Help without charging now and then.

    You'd be surprised how many people just want someone to listen to them. Be that sounding board. Maybe you'll have something useful to recommend. Maybe not. Doesn't really matter, in my experience. Just making yourself available to hear them out is very powerful. You'll win loyalty that most list owners never realize.

    20 a day is a good start... For me - I'm disappointed any day I have less than 100 new subscribers...

    But the important thing is you know HOW to get those subscribers on your list - I suggest you just scale up as your budget can afford.

    But 20 subs a day is 600 subs a month and 7200 subs in a year - so if you are cool with having a list of 7200 subs after a year and you are making money then keep it up

    Cheers,
    Coby

      The number of subscribers you get per day is less important than
      the QUALITY of the subscribers you're bringing in.

      I'd prefer to have 10 high quality subscribers per day who respond
      than 1,000 low quality subscribers per day who barely have a pulse.

      Think RESPONSIVENESS, not just numbers.

      Dedicated to mutual success,

      Shaun

    Yeah depends on the quality, how is your list responsive? Numbers don't count much.

    20 people a day is fine, as long as joining each day is good, whatever will always strive for more people on!
    But 20 people a day is fine ...

    I like what beau said. Aim to get quality leads because at the end of the day it doesn't matter how big our list is if they are not buying

    Treat your list nicely. You will be benefited in the long run. 300 subscribers in 2 weeks is quite good provided the quality of your list is not bad.
