    I know talking email out here is prohibited. Hopefully talking list building isn't. If it is delete this post and I'm sorry. But I just got the urge to share something really powerful with you guys because I know people struggle with how to build highly targeted list really quickly. Since I can't go in depth about email marketing outside of the JR VIP area you'll have to fill in some of the blanks. But for those who can, you are about to find out a quick way for you to build your list and generate a nice income in a very short time.

    I've been around here since 2007 and as you can see I rarely post. But I've learned a lot here so I figure I should share something for once. Not a lot of you guys know me but those that do know that I'm a high volume mailer and make a living doing so everyday. But enough about me. I don't matter. Your bills matter. Your kids matter. Getting out of a bad place matters. Building a stable business matters. Your goals matter. So with that said... hopefully what I share can help you get to where you want to go faster. Let's go.


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Basic to Building Your List

    Building a list is simple. It's only as hard as you make it. Unfortunately a lot of you guys do. I'm going to be 100% up front when I say that building a list quickly without any money is highly improbable. If you're an SEO guy, have fun. This isn't for you. The point of email is being in control of your traffic. No quality score, no waiting on creatives to be approved, no algorithm updates. You control the most prized source... THE TRAFFIC!

    So as an email marketer your job is to control targeted traffic and you accomplish that by building targeted list. The easiest way to build targeted list is by building out your own landing pages and offers. The reason you want to build out your own landers and offers is to monetize on the backend. This way you collect the data and have the ability to re-market to the same people over and over again. Also when you build out your own lander you don't have to use CPA network suppression list or worry about offer terms. Do yourself a favor and follow the terms once you have an ultra targeted list. Advertisers will love you. Trust me.

    Listen... If you take one thing away from this thread today it should be the power of having your own offer/landing page. This powerful asset will skyrocket your income if used correctly. Not only will you be controlling your traffic by building your list, you are setting yourself up to be able to receive that traffic. This way you will be able to funnel that traffic down until you have a bunch of targeted list in multiple niches. That's how you build assets where you wake up, send an email, go back to sleep and wake up to hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Sounds exciting right? It's not hard and it's very possible.

    Anyway... if you've downloaded your fair share of IM related products you'll hear over and over again "The Money IS In The LIST..." blah blah blah. Listen... I personally have mailed list in the millions and have made scraps. So that goes to show you that there is a little more to it than just the list.

    Now back to where I said "Building a list is simple." Guys, it really is. Let's just breakdown the process the simplest way possible...


    =Traffic=> =Landing Page=> =Conversion=> ((Your List))

    Do not make this process hard. Think outside the box but keep it simple. If this is hard for you to do. I don't know what to tell you. Hopefully the example I share below gets your creative juices flowing. Here we go...


    Quick METHOD To Building a Targeted List


    If you want to jump start your list building...

    1) Find a niche... for this example I'll choose dating.

    2) Make a landing page around your niche.

    3) Pay a freelancer to setup Interspire with mods and pmta. (This isn't hard to find. I know a guy if you need one.)

    4) Find one of those guys that used to post in W4M for dating leads on certain classified sites.

    5) Buy the leads in batches of 1k for no more than 10-20 dollars per 1k. The cheaper the better. You want to start small to test quality as a lot of guys are full of shit. If you can negotiate a revshare where you test the data and split the profits it's the best way. That way they're accountable for the performance of the data.

    6) Email your dating leads your dating landing page connected to your esp to collect the double optin lead. This way you are compliant and building a legit list.


    7) Mail your list full of horny men dating offers / adult (if you can get away with it) and other cpa offers that are for men. Like Thompson's cigars. Manly shit. Mix in some quality content to keep complaints low.


    Profit. Rinse. Repeat with other niches.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    A lot of you will complain that this method isn't detailed enough. Unfortunately the rules surround post on email here are strict so I can't go in to detail on certain mailing techniques. Also this is just one example on how you can use an outside the box technique to build targeted list. In no way did I intend for this post to be a step by step hold your hand method. But those of you who aren't lazy, know how to be creative, and dedicated to succeed can make a living doing this easily. I do it every day. You just have to fill in the blanks, network, and keep it simple.

    If you have any questions ask them.. I'll check back here every couple days or so. Just don't make me change my fuckin skype guys. lol

    Now excuse me while I remove the email consulting offer from my signature before some asshole accuses me of making this thread to get clients.

    Have fun!

    SEO's actually a dandy way to get optins. As I noted in my optin ad units post I'd much rather put visitors into a drip campaign than have them click my adsense, and you don't need huge amounts of traffic to make it pretty profitable.

    SEO is great for building some of the most highly targeted leads in just about every niche. The value of an email traffic generated lead is also one of the highest quality lead. But SEO is slow and this thread is how to get 5 figure subscribes within a month.

    You have to build your list. Why promote other peoples aff. programs if you don't get to monetize all of those leads for yourself. Building a list is very easy like the OP says but its the marketing afterwards to keep them engaged and active in your list that's the more difficult part. When you master this you will always be able to make money on a consistent basis. Trust me!

    About how much do freelancers usually charge to setup Interspire with mods and pmta? Is there a certain type of server we have to rent and if so what are the costs involved there?

    Awesome thread and thanks for all the information that you're providing. I'm very interested in getting started with doing big mailing soon and this will help.

    Shouldn't cost more than $500 for an interspire setup. Sometimes even less. The tech you hire can advise you on the specs your server needs. But most linux dedicated servers with CentOS work fine.

    Thanks for this. Why are you using interspire instead of aweber or something? Does this have to do with spam and hitting the inbox or what is the deal? Sorry noob question but I was just gonna hook up aweber to a Optimize Press Squeeze then maybe do media buys of some sort. Does this sound alright?

    CPV is the fastest way I know to build a list for REALLY cheap and the leads convert pretty well. I can pull 500/700 leads with a $100 investment with a little testing and keeping the right targets and you're golden.

    Unless you have a way to import 3rd party data in to one of the whitelisted ESPs you need interspire to mail the data you buy from brokers / lead sellers

    If you have the budget and the data there are high volume esps that you can lease a mailing platform from on a monthly basis to mail your third party data but that is outside the scope of this thread.

    CPV is good. Direct site media buys on targeted pages do well too. Search PPC brings in some of the highest quality leads as well. My method is for those with a small budget but not absolutely broke.

    You can import email lists into GetResponse, or is that not the type of mailing platform that's needed for this type of mailing?

    You import untested data in to get response from someone you don't know and let me know how long your account stays active.

    What if you used one of the paid list cleaning services to clean your list before you import it? That's what I had planned on doing before I read your post. This is really helping me out a lot.

    Cleaning services remove spamtraps. They don't determine how many complaints you generate which is the quickest way to be booted from an ESP like GetResponse.

    Once we build a 10K list, if we're mailing for instance a CPA offer, how many clicks would you say is an average amount to expect? I know it varies with offers and copy and etc, but just a ballpark guess would help.
