I heard from an experienced internet marketer that building a list is the best way to earn money. He said that for every email on my list i should make $1 dollar profits.And i dont need to have a website for every products a promote to client on my email list. Is that accurate? Please explain.

So how do i start building a list? I know, send traffic to my website but how? Is twitter a good way to get build a list? How can i get traffic from facebook? I dont have alot to of money invest-just time, so i need to know the best ways i can get emails and build a list. I also heard that conversion rate for collection emails on a squeeze page is 35% is that right?

And also need a free wordpress squeeze page from anyone, so i can collect names and email.

    Don't listen to the $1 per subscriber per month, it's something which gets thrown around a lot and really misleads people into thinking if they get a list of 1000 they will make $1000 per month

    There is way way more too it than that

    In regards to building your list you need to have good knowledge in a particular niche before you try building a list in it

    You don't have to be an expert but you do need to know more than the average person

    You need to create a quality free offer, create a good squeeze page (I use optimize press) and have some follow up emails in place

    You then need to decide how you're going to make money

    It could be your own products or affiliate products

    This is list building in a nutshell, list building is the backbone of any successful online business

    Yes $1 per month from every subscriber is not realistic. I expect that you are in the Internet Marketing niche or in a sub-niche of IM.

    There are several ways to build your list and just by being on this forum will help you if you have your site in your signature. Do you have an autoresponder? Having someone provide you with a template will only work if you have your own autoresponder.

    Your conversion rate will depend on what product you are offering and your follow up email series.

      The $1 per subscriber not realistic but can be achieved on occasion with all the right emails in place, a good warmup and plenty of trust.

    This month we're going to do something we've done before in PPC, but in PPV its WAY easier. We're going to build a list. The list can be for anything you want but I will show you one thing that works VERY well for list marketing. That is giving away free trial samples and/or coupons for products.

    These work very very well and you get to send them new stuff every so often. There's a couple steps to this technique:
    Build your opt in form, make it in the following format. A header with a very good reason for them to join, maybe an image, your form. That's it. You need to give them a reason to join your list though. If you're doing free samples, you could say something like "Get free sample offers emailed to you, just enter your name and email now!" Or "Our users save $300 per month on average using our free sample offers!" Just make is so they can answer the "what's in it for me question".
    You'll need an opt in program, I like aweber and you can sign up for that here: Aweber but use whatever one you prefer. The key is they handle the opt in process and are very simple to use at a reasonable price, ($19.99 per month).
    Gather your offers, just go to the networks and find "free sample" offers. Remember all those "email only" offers that networks have? Well now you get to use those as you're emailing these offers to your opt in list. I like to get all the offers first, (as many as I can), then start adding my email messages to the list.
    Start adding your messages to your auto-response sequence. There's a couple things to consider here. First is how often to send them, I find every 2 weeks works for me, but you can do more in the beginning and less as time passes. Second what to put in your messages? I like to put something light in the first couple, maybe a funny video from youtube with and offer as an after thought, (if the offer is related to the video it's better). Also, try to build a relationship with your list, don't just fire off banner ads for offers, tell stories, send funny links, send jokes, give them a reason to keep getting your emails. THis is vital and there are whole sites dedicated to just list building and maintaining out there.
    Once you have this niche tackled, go to 10 more. The following ones work well: dating, weight loss, gambling, beauty products, shoes, purses, perfume and baby stuff.
    List building is really simple with ppv yet very very powerful. The thing that sucks is the initial set up of the messages, but once you get that done, it's pretty good to have money coming in when you're not spending a dime to earn it. (Besides the cost of the initial sign up).

    If you can get even 0.50% of your list to do what you want and you have a list of 5,000 people, then that's 25 sales every time you do a mailing. This is all on autopilot, so if you send out a message every 2 weeks, that's 50 sales per month. Multiply that by how many niches you're going to tackle and you now have a good solid hands off money maker. (Btw 5,000 is on the very low end of subscribers, but your opt in form is going to be key to getting them to sign up.)

    Please post any questions you have here.

    In my opinion, quality of the list is : buyer list and follower list...
    if we can build quality list, we can make more money from that.

    without a solid foundation in your niche, lists won't work for you. you gotta have the knowledge, some authority, resources, and the ability to communicate and help your subscribers... it's not like in the old days that few people knows much about email marketing, nowadays they know you are going to market to them and you cannot do it blatantly without a working strategy, just my 2 cents.
