Getting emails for 6 cent each but no way to make money?!

    Hey BHW,


    I have found a great method for getting hundreds of email address's for around 6 cents each! I am as amazed as you are - however I have an issue.


    The main focus of my site was pay per download for incentivized mobile apps, I was using clicksmob, however they were just awful, 75 days to get a payment (not 30 like they say), dozens of emails to them, no support, like no one was running the place. I DID get paid, but it was far to much work. They also removed a bunch of incentive offers that were $1 or more, and now they only have 15 cent offers.


    My problem is I need a mobile offer that can be incentivized or something of that nature. I still get the email address's by the hundreds, but I am not making any money from them. I have tried email submits, they did not work, for mobile traffic app installs seems to be where it is at, or at the very least some sort of email offer??


    Any help would be greatly appreciated!


    Thanks!!

    Not all that glitters is gold? I'm not saying your lead source is questionable, but it's worth considering.

    Are these targeted leads? What niche? You have really provided very little of information to allow anyone to adequately gauge if there is any opportunity to make money with those email addresses. Perhaps they are OLD, used, bots, etc...?

    Anyway, if you are getting email addresses for .06/lead - do you even know if your emails are inboxing? Just because they are cheap doesn't mean they will be profitable. You have a LOT more questions to start asking, and a lot more information to provide if you want valuable help.

    Good luck!

    Hey Davers,

    Thanks for the input, the emails are being generated everyday, they are double opt-in, and very targeted in ios game niche. Getting the email address's was secondary to an incentivized game download that I was promoting with clicks mob, I guess I am just trying to figure out what to do next?

    I don't just want to collect emails for the sake of collecting emails - even at 6 cents each. I was making money with the downloads of other games I was promoting and THEN they were giving me their email address. The emails are not old, they are verified, not bots, real traffic from real game players.

    Without the profit from the affiliate downloads though I don't know what to do? I can still get the emails but. Any ideas??

    Thanks, Josh

    It sounds like you have a responsive crowd, so I would think some PPI would be the way to go for you. They are conditioned to like to download stuff, so I would look into creating some simple toolbars, IOS apps, windows apps, etc... Honestly, if they are as responsive as you say they are I would strongly encourage the PPI route. Essentially all you have to do is get them to install anything, and your revenue stream can be restored.

    For example ... a cheat engine, game hacks, keygens and serials, etc... you also could implement content locking in this situation. Good luck!

    You can try selling solo ads, and let the people buying worry about it.
