How to Start Forming a Profitable Online System
Should you buy a List from Lead companies? The Quality of your list is important!!
Before we start, let me clarify some of the questions you might have up to this point.
Should you buy a List from Lead companies?
My short answer is No. I know someone can pay $35 to receive 20,000 names, but the question here is, do those names fall into your targeted business or are they responsive? The problem is since those lead never subscribes to your service at the first place, you will probably be considered a spammer. I strongly encourage you don’t do this. You might be blacklisted if your subscribers report you of spamming. That will introduce more trouble in the future.
Although there are good lead companies out there who set up multiple, free giveaway websites, and classified websites that people need to subscribe their service before they can post their ads on their sites. If you purchase these leads for people interest some product you happen to sell, you might get fewer spam complaints in this way. However, this option still, not a great lead because these companies sell the leads to multiple vendors so those who subscribed to the lists may be overwhelmed by the contacts from so many email marketers. To be safe, you still want to make sure your ‘unsubscribe’ link is very visible to avoid being a blacklisted sender. Fortunately, those who stay with you are those you should focus on the most.
Overall, I won’t buy the List from Lead companies or on eBay. However, I don’t take free traffic as a valid source for a beginner. A beginner’s website is unlikely to have an active SEO present, and SEO takes months and years to build. Therefore, forget about the Google organic search. I am an advocator for the paid traffic. Overall, the Solo ads are cheaper than the Facebook ads. The Facebook ads are also cheaper than the Google AdWords. Therefore, it is better to start with the Solo ads if you are just a beginner. The well-known paid traffic sources are Igor Kheifets Solo Ads (http://igorsoloads.com), Human Eye Balls (http://Humaneyeballs.com), MLM leads (http://Mlmleads.com), Traffic For Me (http://Trafficforme.com), CK 200 Solo (http://goo.gl/UpBrp9), and Udemi Solo Ads (https://udimi.com/a/qgn5v).
The Quality of your list is important
The money is in the subscriber lists. You need to know your list very well because that is the primary asset of your business. In the year 2000 Dot Com startup mania, those who survive always have a huge customer list. A fancy website or high tech backend system without the subscription list is almost worthless. The quality of your list is vital too. It is better to have an email list of active 1,000 customers than a non-responsive 10,000 customers are because if customers are responsive, they will help you earn money on a consistent basis.
The best lead is those that you have to receive through your site. The better yet, through the paid website like Google AdWords. Those subscribers respond to your advertisement, and they are interested in your service or product. This lead is not cheap, as you will pay for the advertising server with the Google.
Keep thinking of what value or result you can add to your subscriber’s life?
Always think regarding what value you can add to the subscriber’s life? What kind of benefit when they receive the email from you? What kind of problem they can solve with your help? Why should they trust you or listen to your advice instead of someone else?
Besides the focus on the technical aspect of the “opt-in” page, I recommend you also to concentrate on the sales writing, which will be mention in the future posts. These little produce sales pages sometimes are called squeezed page, or a landing page can consider it as the next page of your “opt-in” page. The opt-in page sometimes stands alone which links to the newsletter or Google search engine. Those pages are the service, information or product you would provide to the subscribers to solve their particular problem or better their life in a certain way. You can provide free chapter to your eBooks, free bonus or gifts, etc. You can provide the trial version of your software as well. The key is that the visitors need to sign up to get this free stuff. Well, some of the subscribers might just want to get a free book then unsubscribe it, but if your service or product is good, they will likely to stay with your list. To keep people on your list, you will need to keep selling yourself on your blog or newsletters.
