My free and simple way of building email list

15 replies
Hello Everyone,
I'm a newbie here and I've started to build my email list with zero investment and a simpler manner using craigslist ads. I also ask people to email me to know more about the product/ service I'm offering. So I'm getting like 3 to 4 new requests each day.

Any opinions ? suggestions plz ?

Thanks,
Murthy

      Good luck with the list building, it might be a bit slow but sure a steady approach, if you see some of the WF member here, and search the forum they might be able to help you as well with your list building technique.

      Kind regards,

    Craigslist ad.. I will definitely look into it now that you mention it. So you simply send people from Craigslist straight to your squeeze page?

      Not exactly. I ask them to email me to know more about the product or service I am promoting.
      Also I've not got any squeeze page or so... Just directing them to my hop link on cb.

    Craigslist is such a goldmine if people think out of the box.

    I have always found solo ads to be the best way to build a list like that. There are a number of well reviewed suppliers in the classified section.

    Thats a good idea for building a list. I think you can put a website visitor counter on a craigs list ad. they allow code i think.

    You have to spend money posting stuff on CL though. It isn't free in that respect. They have strong ANTISPAM measures and continue to roll out new measures. At the very least you have to spend $ for VP accounts.

      I used to be all about the solo ad, but I realized that I was just creating a list of dead, burned out leads. The craigslist idea at least sounds like it is a little more targeted in who you can get in. I like the idea!
