    The best and fastest is to buy ad solo from other popular blogs then have ppc and ppv and buy banner on popular blogs

      I'm a huge fan of FB PPC, That's where I would start. I would actually use the $1000 not for the intention of building a list, but to turn over an immediate profit to 'scale up' list building potential.

    The best way to get a list of BUYERS together is to buy a solo ad from a seller at CB with high gravity in your niche.

    I suggest start with the landing page. Nothing is going to help you get signups unless your landing page draws them in with a call to action. I can do solo's and not get any sign ups if I don't have an effective marketing campaign.

    The best WAY? I'd buy top banner space on high traffic IM blog instead of spending $$ on solo ads.

    To summarize the collective gems suggested above, you may:

    1. Start with the landing page. Nothing is going to help you get signups unless your landing page draws them in with a call to action. I can do solo's and not get any sign ups if I don't have an effective marketing campaign.

    2. Buy a solo ad from a seller at CB with high gravity in your niche.
    OR buy ad solo from other popular blogs then have ppc and ppv and buy banner on popular blogs

    3. If you prefer, buy top banner space on high traffic IM blog instead of spending $$ on solo ads

    4. If and when you are ready, publish a WSO. Use your money to build a top quality product and then launch a WSO. That way you get a list of paying customers.

    Thanks for allowing me to curate these gems.

    Ok so I'm looking at buying banner space on a popular blog which is hard to get or more than $1000 because the ones I've seen are way up there and booked months at a time.... Landing Pages I have traffic I don't... So solo offers I have from hustlinsmoke and others but anybody offering guaranteed signups or know of anybody that does... Not looking to get hustled or looking for hand outs just quality traffic.

    Thanks For All Your Suggestions And Input All Taken In

    Hey,

    Suggest buying solos is the quickest way to build your list. Make your homework. Find best sellers. Avoid worst (Look at Facebook, Solo Ads Black List). Good luck

    1. solo ads doubled by a One Time Offer/an upsell and a downsell.
    2. test & tweak until breaking even or making profit.
    3. rinse and repeat for any given subject.

    AKA: making money while building your list.

    Along with the great ideas of fellow members here, another great way to attract people is by offering them incentives. It's a really attractive way that people will be tempted to give out their email addresses. good luck!

    Money will not really build you a good list, except after you've already established one. The key to building a list is a good product leader (paid or not) and then good emails that you send out on your list. If you just start blasting offers, you've done nothing to establish TRUST that you are an AUTHORITY on some aspect of IM, and you'll get batches of unsubscribes with every post you make.

    Sorry, it's not exactly push button riches like the WSO scream, it's real like anything else.

      Purchasing solos from quality mailing lists within your niche. Check out the market places and get in touch with the product owners and ask if they would be interested in providing en endorsed mailing for you. Personally I like to go for 'buyers only' solos whenever I can. The other suggestions in this thread are also great however some of the suggestions require quite a bit of testing and the learning curve is also greater.

    Here's my personal experience to add on to everyone here who asked. I do Facebook ads and solo ads purchase and selling them, so i give my overall experience to share.

    this is shared with recent friends, so I can share it as well.

    For cost per click to select best advertisement results based on experienced, justification are as follows:
    -if you are building a funnel, estimate your cost per click spend, if more than USD 1, spend more on cheaper alternatives, I tried my first solo ads for affiliate PLR offer to save cost and get the CTR first on his landing page before improvement measurements.
    -CTR more than 1% but cost per click expensive, try solo ads and upsell your offers in list. Use autoresponder for relationship building before sales. (People buy the person first, before they buy what you offering)
    -if CTR more than 1%, and you can bring FB Ads cost down, do so in long term. I did FB Ads to churn out 4% CTR to justify its return.

    For solo ads provider, should you choose to use it, please ask them this questions.
    -first, how the seller generates the list,



    -secondly how often is his leads refreshed



    -thirdly, check on buyer testimonials on website.





    -lastly, send him or her ur link for assessment, ask if anyone else similar like your site has been done on his list before (just to get his feel). Experienced seller will be able to guide you like some experienced Warriors I have talked to before and see.






    -these way u can differentiate easily from good and bogus seller.




    Do it with transparency, and explanation to customer with justification of end results is the best testimony and value we provide for our business. It's win-win relationship for both parties.

    The best kind of traffic comes from people who already have made a kind of commitment step towards getting a solution for their problem. For example, customers who have just purchased a product are more open towards doing something as harmless as opting in.

    You can get integration on:

    - Other product's delivery pages
    - Other product's buyer lists

    Or even:

    - Other subscriber lists

    At least you know that they have the money to spend, or that they are targeted towards the niche you're dealing with.

    Check cost per clicks and compare between FB and solo's. FB is cheap yet conversion need to tweak before generate revenue, solo can see some sales and faster prediction to test the funnel.

    if you have that much the you best paying for a quality article with a massive number of subscribers. Article I choose not just for the number of subscribers but if it could easily be linked to the product you have too sell and the fact they already subscribed means your product will be seen

    Rob - I think solo ads are the quickest way to build a list but you have to be certain that you have a good capture page and free offer that will draw people to op-in to your list. You have to give valuable content in exchange for the email address but the capture page must be good.

      Hey Rob,

      You're right!

      Yeah, next to some big joint venture... with someone that has a high quality list.. your own capture page with a video sales offer and a freebie download to gather subscribers is always going to generate "more targeted leads". You can't get any more targeted than when they opt-in on your specific product/category page... well it's my opinion!

    Yes, basically you need to work hand in hand with funnel marketing, and ensure the capture page has familiarity to the subscribers.

    I agree a free WSO is a good way to go, but only if the product is in the Internet marketing niche....

    Then, solo ads, and sometimes going directly to blog owners in your niche and working out a personal banner placement agreement is better than any media-buy/PPV network out there...

    Common Question: How to build a list?
    Common Answer: Offer a free report and add a call-to-action statement somewhere in the middle or at the bottom that recommends how superb the main report for a small fee.

    But, for me, here are he ultimate not-so-ordinary questions I always ask my clients every time they ask me to write a report or an ebook for their list building purposes:

    1. Okay. I know I will be writing that report. But what would you like me to emphasize so it'll come up different from those similar free reports yet more than valuable than those?
    2. What is the ultimate problem that you're trying to resolve in this report? The world's economic problem? Civil war? Domestic violence? [you get the idea]
    3. What's that "one thing" about this report that we don't even need to hype it a lot and yet your readers, not all but perhaps most, will tell us, "Hey, stop talking. Give me the Order Now page and I'll buy the main report"?

    There's no straight-cut 'quickest' way to do this and that.
    But there are ways how people would love to move out from somebody else's list and jump in like crazy in your list.
    Answer those three questions above, layout your outline, write a very detailed instructional material either for yourself or for your writer (if you outsource) and you're good to go - for now.

    I hope that helps.

    It depend on your targeted market, for example for MMO I would go in WF and look for solo ads, in weight loss market I would go for FB ads.

    I think you'd be far better off putting that money to better use such as quality SEO or link building. Do you really want to pay your autoresponder company each month for 1000's of leads who don't open your mails after the 3rd one has gone out?

    I just wanted to thank all of you for your input I really appreciate it... I will be looking into all of these suggestions and figure out what will work best for me and my business. I am really looking into the long term here not just the quick buck. I want to be someone that is approachable as an online business owner not some fly by night marketer.

    Thanks Again Warriors,

    Hopefully Someday We Can Work Together...

    All of the above are good but dont blow $1000 with just one go. Instead use something like $100 ata time and test various squeeze pages and various funnels. This way you will see what works and what doesnt. Then ditch what doesn't work and hammer what does.

    Hi,
    I bet almost everyone in here is going to say solo ads. Guess what, they are right. You can buy a lot of solo ads for $1000.00. List building is ongoing.
    Good luck!

    Solo ads is still the best one but you have to spend more money. PPC is also good but you should choose the best one. Because many PPC are useless..
