    There are many, many courses on building your list. Many are free!

    Now...

    First make sure you do have your sales funnel set up.

    So OTO / Upsell is a must. So once they sign up, you want to have an OTO page, offering something they would be interested in. If they say NO thanks, give them an upsell or downsell - another product they would be interested in.

    Second, continue building your list and make sure your follow ups provide value.

    It is consistent traffic driving you need to do in order to increase sales.

    First things first... if you bought subscribers, you probably shouldn't expect much response. But you should expect some spam complaints if they didn't specifically sign up to YOUR list.

    That being said, once you have subscribers who are interested in what you have to offer, then you need to provide them with good information about your niche. Be sure you treat them as friends, not a paycheck. Earn their trust and they'll buy from you.

    Sorry, but you can't expect good thing from this kind of lists, they're not real 100%, Safelists sell fake emails, ok let's think that some of them are real, but the big problem is that they probably will not open any email, do you know why? they 're new subscribers to Safelis website, they give their unused emails just to sign-up and promote their ads, so they will not open e-mails at all. This is what I've learned from the scammers Safelist.
    To build a real list you need real people who love your content not others.
    Good Luck.

    Yep, you certainly want to make sure you have permission to email them. You did mention that they were subscribers, so I suspect you do. The sky is the limit if they are yours.

    Do you know how the list of subscribers was generated? What types of people these are? Try to target or frame your messages for this audience. As others have said - I wouldn't expect a great response rate.

    They're not your subscribers, then?! :confused:

    The value of a list, and the point of email marketing, and the thing that produces income from it, is that your subscribers have given you permission to send them email because you're the person they wanted to hear from. Without that, it has no value. Most of them won't open your emails, and some of the ones who do will report them as spam, which can cost you your domain registration, hosting, and sometimes even your internet connection.

    You don't imagine, I suppose, that all the people on the list you've bought gave the original list-compiler permission to sell their email addresses on to third parties?

    How much email do you think those people receive from marketers they've never heard of?

    How do you think they feel about it?

      I interpreted the OPs post as, he bought by means on solo ads, so paying another marketer to use their own list (with permission) to send to his offer, therefore gaining opt ins/leads.

      Purchased lists are garbage, pointless and spammy. Not cool.

      ..I'll let the OP clarify though

    Just build a relationship. One of my favorite quotes is from a guy named André Chaperon and he said in his Auto Responder Madness Course that, "delivering REAL VALUE to your chosen audience through the use of a series of highly targeted, story-based emails. Your aim is to resolve the deep emotional pain your audience is feeling, by offering a solution to their problem."

    Furthermore...

    "You presume the attitude that you look at everybody who you want to do business with, and decide you're not going to wait for money to change hands before you start contributing, guiding, counseling, advising and protecting them.

    She bought subsribers....through solo ads, it doesnt mean she bought it in a bad way or from someone. Now you need to have a good autoresponder series with offers which you already seem to have?

      Yes indeed ... it appears the OP has been edited, to clarify, since the replies. When I replied, above, the first line said "I have a List of Subscribers that i just bought", but now it says "I have a List of Subscribers that i just bought through Solo Ads".

      It's pretty annoying, of course, and obviously contrary to all forum etiquette, because it makes it look - at first glance - like all the replies people have kindly put time and effort into contributing, in an attempt to help, were ignoring something stated in the very first line of the OP. But what can you do, if people want to change the context of their questions after getting the answers, rather than simply adding a one-line correction-post to the thread saying "Sorry, I forgot to mention that ... ... ..."?
