i hope this posts helps you.
this was actually a blueprint given to me by my mentor, and i am now going to share it with you because it really helped me.
... i noticed there are a lot of you guys asking about how you can build a fast list, so i decided to share with you how i was able to build a list of 1,284 people in just 11 days...& make $522 in the process...
First off, anyone can do this so don't worry if you have no experience
ok so here are the steps that i took to get a list of 1,284 people in 11 days
high converting squeeze page & lead magnet
first of all you will need a lead magnet, which is something that you can give away of great value, in order for people to want to give you their name and email address for.
At that point i did not have anything to give away, so i contacted my mentor a guy called Jani G, and asked him if he could give me some ideas.
He allowed me to give away a video that he shot.
So i now had my lead magnet.
Next step was to create a squeeze page to get people to opt in at.
this was a simple page which had a headline, a few bullets, and and opt in form.
This opt in form gave me a 42% opt in rate
Meaning around 4 out of 10 people who came to my page, entered their name and email.
Get targeted Traffic to my squeeze page!
this is the part that is hard for most people because they just don't know how to drive traffic...
here are the ways i drove traffic to my squeeze page:
1 - Forum Posts
i made 5 posts in 10 different internet marketing forums a day, and got traffic from my signature file
yes you can get a lot of traffic to your opt in page if you give good value and take part in discussions in forums, just like this one.
When you give value in forums, people will respect you, then will click on the signature file below , and go to the squeeze page which will give you more free stuff!
2 - Some thank you page ads
i contacted some marketers, (some of them from the warrior forum) and asked them if i could offer my free course for their customers on their thank you page.
this means that people who go to their thank you page after buying their product, will have the opportunity to go to your squeeze page and opt into your list.
Take some time to contact as many people as you can to ask them if you can put your ad on their thank you page.
Not everyone will 'Say Yes' ,... but... some will and those are the ones that count.
the best way is to start off in this forum the Warrior forum!, then other Internet Marketing forums... and then go find some other products that are in your niche, contact the websites owners, and ask them if you can put your ad on their thank you page...
3 - 2 paid solo ads
i found a really cool site where i was able to purchase 2 solo ads for around $15 and $34.
a Solo ad is an email that goes out to someone elses entire list.
You pay and they send it on a given date, its as simple as that.
the first list my email got sent out to was around 10,000 people.
the second list was around 23,000 people.
& i was amazed at the number of opt ins i got from this
that's literally all the traffic strategies i used...
this will add lots of people to your list for FREE FOREVER!
after your prospects opt in, give them the opportunity to recommend your site to a friend.
i used a cool script which i found which allowed people to enter a certain amount of email addresses.
i told them that if they entered 7 email addresses of their friends who would find this info usefull, then they would get an extra bonus.
so for every one person that opted in, i get 7 more people come to my site for FREE.
Step 4: - make easy money up front
Monetize my Thank you page!
On the page which had the video which they opted in for, after they had the opportunity to watch the video, i had a link under the video which referred them to an affiliate product.
most people would click that link after watching the video because of the great content in the video... and some of them bought the product being sold!
within 11 days i managed to build a list of 1,284 targeted subscribers.
Which brought me $522 in affiliate sales.
