      Don't do it for the fact that you are asking such basic questions... Go READ for a week on how to successfully run PPC ads to build a list. Put the effort in beforehand before you consider investing, eg, research, a clear action plan etc... Then invest a small amount to test you theory!! Go read read read!!

          Start with 1 paid traffic source, and get used to it before

          Great Suggestion Craig, spend some of that money on professional, one on one help and then a little bit at a time testing out different paid traffic methods. You can't get results just from spending $15,000. You have to learn, like someone else suggested, read, read, read.

    Before you spend all that money to build a big list, try building a small list of maybe 500 people and seeing if you can manage to sell to them and make a profit. Then, scale up.

      ^ this. You need the business back end to support your newly acquired list, you need the funnel in place, the business model you are going to utilize, the support pieces, etc.... Get everything in place and with your list of 500 or 1000 see what sort of revenue you can generate, and then (if profitable) scale that...

        Just start from small, and than scale up.
        You need to see the numbers, to optimize things, before you get the best results .

    How about renting a niche/market specific list, capturing the responders to your campaign off that list into your own.

    ex: srds, nextmark...

    before you even think about dumping lots of money in paid advertising make sure you first focus on creating a good sales funnel that converts well enough so you can make some good money back or at least so that you break even a lot of the time

    Once you have a sales funnel you can use some solo ads to test it and see how it performs but don't go crazy on buying traffic until you know your numbers and you know exactly what your funnel converts at

    You're going to hurt yourself and burn through all that cash if you do it now - you need to study up on a list building course or ten.

    Yes you will probably start with Solo Ads, or PPC and once you get good at that and see the results coming in, will then scale up and out.

    Click the link below - this is an e-mail series telling you about list building - I'm sure it will help you get your head around what is involved.

    You need to know your numbers before anything else.

    Start small, setup your funnel, only then will you know roughly how much money you are making per subscriber and then you know exactly how much money you can afford to spend on each subscriber.

    Once you know how much you can afford to pay for each subscriber, paid traffic becomes much easier.

    I hope that isn't all the money you have. If so, we need to rethink your business plan and I'd be glad to come on as a consultant.

    Save your 15k and start testing with cheap PPC like 7search, maybe a few solo ads from well know warriors. You will need that 15K for when you do build a list, so you can create products to sell to them. Sounds like you want to jump in head first, and you could wind up burning 15k on nothing. You will need to test paid traffic over and over before you find a winning campaign, going all in from the start could dry up your funds fast.

    PPC and Facebook ads to start with so you can test different headlines and messaging as well as graphics (on Facebook) and your landing page. Create multiple ads into different landing pages and quickly guage where your highest ROI is.

    Then, you can move to larger ad campaigns, solo ads where you take less risk and experience more reward because you have done the earlier testing.

    more than 15K for building email list alone? my, my... that's a lot of money. ANyway, you seem to head for email marketing. There's a ton of sites offering free info about that. I've done a research myself, though I haven't gone through all of my researches yet. PPC? It's no joke. If you won't do it properly, you can lost a lot of money without getting a bit from your investment. Be sure to have some expert guide you through ppc. There's a lot of things you have to learn in creating campaigns, targeting keys, and all...

    I will start small by setting up my squeeze page, sales funnel and the email messages in the autoresponder sequence. Once the basic structure has set up already, then I will decide on one paid traffic generation that I plan to use to start it small.

    Do remember that you will need to test and tweak your campaign so that you will be able to get a successful campaign. Solo ads is a good idea but you do need to know your business or else you will be burning big hole in your pocket.

    My advice to you bro is to now spend a dime until you understand what you're spending it on. To come on this forum and say that you have 15k to spend? Not smart at all. People will come out of the wood works to offer you their plan.

    Others have made some good points, but what I would say is there is a lot of infomation on the net, and for that matter right here in this forum for free that will teach you a whole lot before you plow into spending your money. You have a good idea about certain sources to build a list, but it goes deeper than that. You need front end, middle, and back end training on how all the pieces of the puzzle work together.

    You sounds to me that you want your 15K to become 150K overnight. You might try that on stock market, there will be chances.. anyway.. read around and learn first.. that so much to do but you need to pick on one method and seek out those who had succeeded using the same business model and niche, get a mentor. Set up your sales funnel and test and test till it is converting well for you. Then, you can start massively investing in targeted paid traffic..
    hope it helps.

    To Your Fun & Freedom

    Use Plentyoffish ... and SevenSearch. With that budget you will find a lot of PPC networks to use.

    If you have that much to spend, i would recommend you find a mentor as well.
    Depending what niche you're interested in.

    I wouldnt recommend you start with ppc if you dont know exactly what you need to do.

    Money burns fast. Remember that

    If you are wanting to build a list, I say invest in solo ads first. Find some here on the WF in the classifieds or JV section. Once you have built a list you can do adswaps to increase the size. Finally start building rapport and trust with your list and then start marketing products to them.
    Pure Leverage offers an autoresponder and a great 100% commissions if you resell that product to your list!
