    hi guys

    i started capturing emails from a sign up box on my site - and i get about 30-40 signups a day..in 1 month i have 690 confirmed users (all parents - its a kids related site) who i have emailed a few times already with only 30 unsubcribes, 90% open rate, 78% CTR rate

    would you say this is good list growth? or is this nothing junior stuff?

    besides the rant, this indeed a create job. 40 optins a day is pretty good for just a subscribe box on a website, nice conversation rate. I would recommend to scale this up

    Mates, just concentrate on how it can be useful in monetizing. Else, there is someone called BigBuddy, who will trash you along the way.

    EDIT: Oops, I forgot to add my real comment.

    By the way, nice achievement OP. Just try to get yourself into an affiliate program related to toys or something like that.

    Great job OP! If they're heavily targeted they're worth X times the amount of untargeted opt ins.

    @nubcakes: This kind of email marketing is generally done by putting up a page with an opt in form where people sign up to receive a newsletter/emails from you and you use a service like aweber to send follow up emails. You make money through promoting relevant affiliate programs, CPA offers and products (e.g. from Clickbank).

    Another type of email marketing is where you buy some opt ins (called "data" e.g. freebies data that has opted in to receive emails from 3rd parties when they signed up at a freebies site) and then send out email blasts. Other people scrape random emails from the Internet and send blasts out to them, but this is very shady and illegal in a lot of countries.

    Hope that helps.

    The easiest way is to sign up at aweber. They have tutorials and a $1 trial. You just copy and paste their form code into your website's code.
