How i built a 1,284 list in just 11 days & Made $522.91

132 replies
Hey guys Gavin here

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


Step 1:


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.


Step 2:


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...



Step 3:

Go VIRAL!

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.

thanks

Gavin 'List Building' Stephenson.

P.S - feel free to add any more traffic techniques to the list if you have any good ones! thanks, this could help everyone in this community greatly

        First I want to say thanks Gavin for a great post. I'm a real proponent of the step-by-step approach.

        Couple of questions:

        Step 2.3; how and where did you locate the sites to do the solo ads?

        Step 3.; in regard to bonuses. What kind of extra bonus do you use.

        I ask this question because I have a really hard time of offering bonuses that are the same old, passed around reports or videos. Everything that I sell or giveaway currently are original products that are created by me. So I'm having a difficult time coming up with bonuses to give away that really offer true value.

        Maybe I need to be talked down on this one. But my highest priority is to give my customers more in value than what they give to me, be it money they pay for a product or an email address they give for an opt-in free product. They have to get more in return for what they give. Just the way I operate.

        So anyone with thought on this I would appreciate.

        Thanks,

        Brian

          For solo ad mailings you can use directory of ezines. Always try and negotiate a better deal when dealing with ezines. You can also contact list owners in your niche.

          For the extra bonuses you can do a free 30min consultation or do a free weekly webinar or find a PLR related to your giveaway product.

    I really love people sharing blueprints ( step by step)

    many thanks for sharing
    worth using and implementing


    One more thing to make any blueprint or guide( step by step) is CONSISTENCY

    that's the word that keeps making you get constant result.


    You might follow this blueprint and do everything and maybe modify some of the stuffs there......and DONT get result in 11 days

    what will see you through the tunnel is when you are consistent

    Hope this compliments Gavin Post

  • This is an excellent blueprint. You have given the step by step process for success on building a revenue generating opt in list quickly.

    Something you could do on your end when you do have a product of your own that people will purchases is to have opt in page linked for affiliate tracking. This way, affiliates who are gun shy of selling (which I never really quite get how this could be) won't have to do anything but offer high value to their subscribers, friends, followers, connections, etc. On the back end you do the selling driving those who opted in to your paid product page.

    Thanks for sharing your formula.

      Absolutely an outstanding post. You will go very far. Wow. Thank you so much. There's no reason you can't make that amount every week with the self same list IMHO.

      TRAFFIC TECHNIQUE.

      Here's 3 small ones.

      = Add the TWITTER app to your facebook and tweet your squeeze page launch (it will get added to your facebook automatically).

      = Use SocialMarker.com to bookmark a blog post linking to your squeeze page on 40 social marketing sites. Then MASH the RSS feeds (using an RSS masher) of your favorites from all those sites in to one and PING at pingomatic.com

      = Sell a related product on ebay and link to your squeeze page in all communications with enquiries and customers.

      You could always get Mike Filsaime's Viral Friend Generator, or Frank Kern's Good Karma List Machine. I don't recommend the List Machine right now, I'm pretty sure they're doing some tweaking on it because it had PHP injections...

      I'd go with Filsaime's, it's a classic script.

    Nice post but I have to agree that having a mentor or coach can really get you moving in the right direction a lot faster than if you do it on your own. If only for the accountability factor.

    In my opinion, it's not a blueprint but rather, an outline of the process.

    However, this is also something I've thought about for some time. The lead magnet is my only barrier. It's not easy to create a great product.

    Hi Gavin,
    Brilliant post, I've just recently focused my efforts on list building and your post has helped me significantly. Agree with everyone on getting a mentor, I've avoided doing this in the first year (big mistake on my part) so I went and got myself a mentor 2 weeks ago.

    I'm still learning but here are my 2 cents:

    - on the thankyou page, you can add free bonuses that have a continuity program such as a coaching program so instead of making a one off sale, hopefully you get to make a passive monthly income as well

    - Gavin you are at a great stage to be doing adswaps now that you have over a 1000 subscribers. I haven't reached that yet although I've been warned to track it so based your swaps on click- throughs instead of the number of people they have on their list.

    Here are the places you can find people to do adswaps with:
    ImAdSwaps.com

    Warrior Joint Ventures
    
AdSwapFinder.com
    
ListSwapper.com

    - Webinars: I haven't tried this yet but here it is anyway if you want to give this a go and have contacts. Find someone in your market to interview, comment on their blog, read their twitter and send them a personalized email and ask them for an interview. Hopefully they're someone who has a big list and you can leverage here. One technique is to do a personal video message instead of an email - over the top but it gets their attention. Start tweeting it like Jobfreetop said.

    P.S. Thanks for sharing guys - its fantastic.

      I used many different internet marketing forums. Search internet marketing forums in Google and post in the buy trade and share sections.

      They require that you have a specific amount of posts but if you post 5 times in each forum you can get good traffic. I find that task tedious so I outsourced it.

      I am not really on a high. I have been doing this stuff for a while now. I just wanted to share what I did to grow my list to 1000 in 11 days. I do believe I am lucky though because I am living, but I am not lucky to get that result. I just put a bit of work in and followed instructions.

    Gavin -
    I believe you're on the right track. I'm assuming $522 is net profit after paying for expenses to get the list. If this is true, then all you need to do is SCALE it up. Meaning . . . once you find a profitable blueprint for success simply multiply your investment and effort by 2, 3 or 10 times. $522 X 10 = $5,220 every 11 days. That's about $15,000 a month!

    Happy Trails!

    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


    Step 1:

    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.


    Step 2:

    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...



    Step 3:

    Go VIRAL!

    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.

    I am going to do a few promos to this list over the next week and i will let you know how much money i make form that.

    i will post an update in around 7 days from now!

    thanks

    Gavin 'List Building' Stephenson.

    P.S - feel free to add any more traffic techniques to the list if you have any good ones! thanks, this could help everyone in this community greatly
    Good post. Can you tell me more on the directory of ezine. Did it work well?

    wow great thread, thanks to all for sharing. My favorite part was:

    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.

    I never thought of something like that. GREAT TIPs all around, I am inspired

      Hi
      sorry another questionabout the Directory Of Enzines
      I would PM you but I cant for another 11 posts

      I have downloaded the DOE ebook and am now reading it
      All the links to the DOE take me to a clickbank sales page where the price 197$
      This seems to be a rather high price to pay to join an advertising company considering i will then be buying advertising from them

      Am I missing something, is this what you did?

      Fantastic post Gavin and thanks for posting it.
      As someone who has no list whatsoever, I've been thinking long and hard these past few days about having to pull my finger out of my wotsit, and actualy get on and start building one.

      But as with so many things sometimes, the word HOW seems to implant itself in my head, and I put off starting anything at all, as it's so much easier to PLAN on building one than actually getting down to building one NOW.

      The fog has now lifted thanks to your post.

      The best thing to do is create a really valuable bonus product that is generic. It has to be REALLY good though and something that everyone needs.

      Example: An entire video course on how to setup a squeeze page. Create an entirely free page dedicated to that course and have your opt in form at the bottom of that page. In the last video provide a call to action and tell them to opt in for more great info.

      IMPORTANT. Do not sell anything. Just create high profile content. People will add it to there thank you pages because it provides there subscribers with good info and plus they might even promote the page to there list.

      The friend script isn't on the market. Actually I think my friend is releasing one soon, I'll post the link if he does.

        Hi Patrick,

        To make this work. First you have to have a really good bribe / bait that gives people very good value.

        Once you have got that out the way. Find a really good affiliate offer that relates to your free bribe / bait.

        In the past I have used the following method and it works great: I bought a product and I really like it. It gave good value and I got amazing results using the info contain in the product.

        So I decided to become an affiliate for the offer. I then created a Free offer containing a few out takes from the product I bought and create a short video.

        Obviously you probably already know that my new affiliate offer was the upgrade to my video with the out takes. It works well.

    Smart way to make some money.
    Basic really. Everyone could do this. You do not really have to spend any money on advertising that squeeze page. Use all the free internet resources and you will still get people to register.

    The Lead magnet and the affiliate product must be appealing.

    The post is great.

      It depends on what ezines you use... and what niche your in. IM niche doesnt work as good as other niche markets. I have got as much as 70 leads from one ezine.

    Hi guy's just a quick update on my progress....

    I created a blog and wrote one article and used Robert Planks action pop up script. I done this about a week ago and I have added 17 Leads To my list from doing just that. 17 x 52 Weeks = 884 extra leads a year. That's equivalent to $884.

    IMAGINE If I create more articles which I will SOMEDAY.. I just hate writing them and I am a tad Lazy. I can then get that up to maybe 17 subscribers per day from just one traffic source.

    I am thinking about creating a video on what I did and how to do it. If your interested please let me know. I'll show you how to set up a blog and everything. I will only do it if you interested. It's by BIRTHDAY today so I want to do something special!!!

    Also...

    I am thinking about doing a List building service where I build your list for you! Let me know if your interested in that as well. (IM NICHE ONLY)

    My list is now 5332 subscribers as I write this. It's been around a month and a half since I started building this specific list and I will provide you with video proof if i create the blog setup video. It depends if people are intrested..

    I'm out to celebrate. PEACE

      Wow nice, I can't wait to see your video if you are creating one. Is that the one in your Sig! Looks Great. I have one quick question about it though:
      Do you know where I can get the legal forms regarding Earnings Disclaimer as in your Opt in Squeeze Page?

      I've got another question though in one of your post you said to include the content right on the page and then provide an option for an opt in list but not to put any promotional content in it.

      But then you said you had a small affiliate link under your video or your content so how do you set it up?

      Wouldn't it also be better to require your members to sign on to your list before getting the good stuff?

      Sorry I'm pretty new to list building but intend to try it out shortly your tips here have been very helpful. Bookmarked for sure!

    You Rock Gavin!!!

    Thanks for the post... I've been building my list mainly by doing adswaps with other list owners. Usually those with similar sized lists. Its working out well and I plan to reinvest the income very soon into paying for solo ads like you suggest.

    I saw some resources for finding JV Adswap partners posted by Aimee Vo earlier. I would like to add another...

    JV List Building

    And another strategy that I implement is "download page swaps"

    Basically, I found a couple of other people building lists in my niche... we all created banners and put them on eachothers download pages. They link to our squeeze pages. This has brought in some nice results.

    Another suggestion, which I plan to implement soon, is using autoresponder swaps... here is how this will work...

    when someone subscribes to your list you send them a welcome message.. now on that welcome message or in a follow up email you send the next day you could have a list of recommended resources... and those will be links to other peoples squeeze pages.. in return they will do the same for you.

    From my experience so far I have found that doing JV Adswaps with other list owners is great. Just be careful because some people will scam you by lying about their list size or not mailing for you at all. So if you can ask for referrals from other's they've swapped with. But this doesn't happen very often. Always track clicks you send and that they send you. My host has link tracking that I use. But if you don't have that you could always use something like bit.ly

    Ok I think I've rambled on enough here.

    Once again AWESOME post Gavin!

    Great ideas. I have found that the first and best thing you can do is give something away of real value for free. After someone buys within a day or two I try and send them something else of value for free as well! This helps the purchase stick!

    Great Plan of Attack!

    Another source of "solo ads" is to type in "solo ads" in the search box of this forum.

    Go with a person that has a "reputation" on the forum: lots of posts, length of time as a member, etc. And lots of communication with that person.

    Excellent advice Gavin, thanks for sharing.

    I myself noticed a jump in opt-in's after visiting forums. I learned of this list-building technique a while back but hesitated to implement the strategy.

    As mentioned adding value is where it's at. If you desire value in the form of leads and sales you must offer value. Follow that equation and you can never go wrong.

    Another strategy to use is to submit informative articles related to your niche to ezinearticles.com and link to a blog post that expounds on the article you posted to ezinearticles.com and have an opt-in box in the sidebar. The best way to monetize the traffic coming to your blog from ezinearticles.com is to plug in an affiliate promotion within the blog post that expounds on the article you posted to ezinearticles.com

    Thanks for sharing Gavin.

    Just two quick questions regarding what your use or recommend for

    1. Opt in form
    2. Squeeze page

    I'm struggling to find cheap/easy to use ones just to start out with as I'm really just learning alot about IM at the moment.

    Thanks again

    Thanks!

    I just started to build my list as well. This will sure help me alot especially for the traffic part.

    Just wonder, which is more effective? Focus on one niche forum with many useful posts or participate in different forums with lesser post?

    Forum Posting and Going VIRAL is my most favorite technique and it can do wonders for you if done the right way. I Believe forum posting is fun and interesting unlike article marketing where you have to write long articles. Thanks for the tips

    this is really a nice blueprint. i have made $300 on amazon as my first online income, and now moving into list building. this is something i wanted to try.

    btw, if you mind asking, who are your mentors ? are they someone from warriorforum or other marketers ? could you recommend some of the products to learn from ?

    thanks again. long live internet marketing !

      My Mentor teaches this very concept and it really works. I invite you to visit my About me page to learn more.

    Awesome thread, I am definitely going to use something similar. In your experience, does adding a video to your squeeze page help?

      Video on squeeze page I have found always decreases conversion

    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.
    Im glad you mentioned this step as the first step. Many people get this wrong, yet this is the most important of all. Having a capture page , and a lead magnet to follow is the fundamental of your site. Yet many people dont do this or not even have a capture page at all. With no capture page, you cant even build a list.
