'hi-jacking' buyers list

Has anyone used solo ads on fully buyers list to get them to join your list by use of providing tremendous value through a squeeze page and report?

Wouldn't I save more money doing this than running a paid ad campaign?

    First off, your question doesn't make that much sense.

    And, if you are asking whether it would be more effective to run an ad with a squeeze page on someone's buyer list, than it would be to purchase a solo ad, I would say yes and no.

    The "buyer's list" will generally produce better results, but no vendor in his right mind is going to let you drain off his/her subscribers in exchange for nothing.

    If you want access to my buyer's list, you had better have a product that would be of interest to my list, with a nice affiliate commission for each sale generated from my referral to you.

    Some list owners won't even consider running your ad, unless they are going to make $5 to $15 or more for the sale generated that results in you getting another email address for your list.

      I mean paying you like $500 to use your fully buyers list to capture their e-mails with a free quality original report.

        That's exactly what tpw is talking about. It is very unlikely that someone will sell you a simple paid ad to their buyers list offering them a free gift.

        To get to a buyers list you would want to JV with the list owner and give him a big piece of your product sales as a commission.

        That way he gets some benefit from sharing his buyers list and has an incentive to encourage his buyers to purchase (and then become your buyers).

        Simply allowing you to buy ad space in my mailing list sacrifices my integrity, by allowing money to dictate who or what I recommend to my list.

        Yes, I allow vendors access to my list in exchange for money, via affiliate commissions, but those folks are giving something that will be of huge value to my readers.

        Anyone who is willing to take your $500, without regard to your offer, is someone whose list where I don't want to be a subscriber.

    Not a shot in hell I would ever sell a solo to my buyer list. My buyer list is gold.

    The way to get at my buyer list is to come at me with a fantastic product that OVER DELIVERS VALUE and give me at least 75 percent.

    Why am I so strict?

    Because my buyers list is worth 6 figures a year easily and I guard it like gold because that's what it is.

    You'd better kick my door down with mind blowing value to have a shot and for you, it's worth it to get these buyers.

      Would you do it for 100% commissions and value?

    Like what most of the guys here say, Buyer's list is worth its weight in gold. Generally, you will need to pay a premium in access to somebody's else buyer's list or offer them a really good product that they wouldn't hesitate in promoting to their list.

    Hi,

    You're correct that you want to seek out high quality traffic.

    That's a good mind set to have.

    I'd much rather spend $1 per lead than $0.10 if I knew that those leads
    were proven buyers.

    You also have to think short, medium & long term too when it comes to your
    whole sales funnel.

    Having an effective, free flowing back end system in place that sends your
    buyers through a funnel that offers even greater value than your first is what
    allows you to really grow your business and take things to the next level.
