Help naming me a site just for Collecting Opt-ins

Hi Everyone,

I need to setup a site (IM Niche) just for collecting Opt-ins for building list.

Is it good idea to have a site with just a squeeze page for collecting Opt-Ins or it's better to have little blog setted up with some content to create some credibility? I will be driving traffic from various paid methods.

How you people approach it and name/construct such websites where primary focus is collecting opt-ins?

Thanks,
IMGem

    It depends what sort of list you want to build - a big one or a responsive one: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post7939758

    (Like so many income-determining issues in internet marketing, it's one of those "quantity or quality: which to prioritize" issues.)

      Thanks Alexa,

      Want to build a responsive one. I will be delivering quality content through autoresponder and will be focusing on developing a relationship. This argument pops up just to move things fater and building a blog later. What you will suggest?

        I don't use squeeze pages any more, after all the split-testing I've done (explained in the post linked-to above).

        For me, "both" (suggested above) is the wrong answer, and I have proof of that in a range of different niches from real live testing with real live subscribers/visitors.

        But - on the other hand - I'm not in any IM niches like you, and that may be a significant difference. The crux of my argument against squeeze pages is that squeeze pages do drive away some of the people who would otherwise have become the best customers (and I'm not theorizing here: I've actually proved this, over and over and over again, to a high degree of statistical significance) ... however, and it might be a very big "however", I have no experience of this in IM niches. And it's not too difficult to see that they may be very different, in this regard, because the customers are marketers themselves. So I don't know; sorry. It might even be, in IM niches, that "both" is a good answer, for all I know!

A blog is primarily good for building traffic from Google and other sources, in which case, you could direct that traffic to your squeeze page and would have a higher opt-in rate.
      Thanks Stefan,

      I have long term plan is to build a blog with Quality content but just wanted to move things faster and do some solo adds, PPC and some testing having three weeks holidays from work.

      May be Add-On Domain for Squeeze Page and Main domain for adding content later? Or always better to have a sperate domain as indicated by KevinW above also for avoiding possible spam reporting on main blog domain?

    It's not complicated but I would go with BOTH. Many niches require more content to build credibility and you can do that on your blog. Build the blog and it will get targeted traffic. Link the squeeze page to the blog (For example at the bottom of a article or in the sidebar with a nice image as a link to the squeeze page).

    Work to send traffic to both. For my squeeze pages, PPC works best. It's easy and fast but will cost you.

    The domain name is easy. Just pick a domain name that applies to your niche.

  • We did something similar for one of our mailing lists.

    It's 1 domain with 1 page. That's it!

    THE MUSICIANS MAILING LIST - Musicians ezine Newsletter With The Latest News, Music Articles, Music Resources, Products and more...

    If you get creative, you can make it work.

    It's how we got a Gazillion optins.

    Yes, a Gazillion I tell ya!

    It is possible to build a huge, high quality list fast. Anyone who tells you differently has probably not done it.
