    How To Build From Scratch A $7,000/month Mailing List (Easy To Follow Guide)

    I will be honest and say that the steps laid out in this guide are NOT going to make you any money, it's what you do with them that really counts. Look, even if you follow them to a 'T' you are not guaranteed a $7000 monthly earning, heck, not even a $100 monthly earning. Now I don't mean to put you off reading this because it could be the most useful thing you've read in your life and could yet prove to be your million dollar golden ticket.​

    Now I don't claim to be a genius of some sorts or possess the uncanny ability to make money out of thin air but what I do that I have that many other Internet Marketers famously fail to do is set targets and break things down into smaller goals so as to aid speedy and monitored progress.
    Quick example (don't want to waste to much time) -> instead of looking at $7000/month. If you're currently at less than $500 why not set a target for hitting your first $500 month.

    This vital if you are to have longevity in the internet marketing game. You are going to have to walk before you run and crawl before you walk. I cannot stress how important getting into this mindset is if you are planning to succeed. It is impossible for a restless mind like mine to push one idea for months if I don't break things down into immediately achievable steps.

    If I had set my sights immediately for a $7000/month for my first month I would have bombed out and thought, "I could try my hands at something else, this isn't working like I want", after only making $400 in my first month. It's all about what you have your sights set on. SO before you read any further, ensure me you have NOT set your sights too high for your first real push.

    Now lets get to the hardcore steps and make this work.

    WHAT YOU NEED
    Click here for the email marketing tool I am currently using - in other words it's what I recommend
    (Also contains useful video guide on the service which I advise you watch)

    THE CONCEPT
    The plan is to "Product Hijack" now this is not something you've probably ever come across in this sense. What you are going to do is target a HOT IM product, preferably a nicely packaged "Be all and end all" Clickbank or WSO product that are currently being advertised to death. You are going to feed directly off the interest in this product and make business by sucking in emails of interested buyers willing to splash cash on this product or something "better" or "more useful" or "that actually works".


    STEP 1
    Find a few HOT products currently baking in an oven of hype.
    Use the Gravity feature on CB but be careful not to try something too big.
    Gravity above 600 can be a goldmine but can equally be a dead end.


    STEP 2
    Create your squeeze & drive-thru material, this should work on two levels.

    LEVEL ONE - The Drive-Thru
    This should give a positive or negative review of the HOT product. The important thing here is to be as realistic and REAL as possible. Make everything seem straight from experience of using the product. For this you will find use in reading as many reviews of the product as possible. Take this seriously, it's the backbone of the method.
    The drive thru can be a YouTube video, article, blog post/comment, forum post... and so much more that spring to mind.
    IMPORTANT
    You must now make it clear that a better product exists that you recommend they check out. Be natural, of course, don't just drop it in. Work your way up to it.
    Instead of saying, "Now check out...". say, "However where this *HOT product name* lacks, *YOUR product name* delivers by... i find that after reading(*or watching*) for 30 minutes I already had a plan worked out to make my first few paychecks. "

    LEVEL TWO - The conversion/squeeze
    This should be a webpage for the "better" product (your product) you now explain how it works so well and fill it with realistic claims and mumbo jargon, or the truth, whichever works best for you. I find that a blend of the two works best for conversions. Now for what makes this work 99.99% of the time -> Announce that the product is free for a limited period if they sign up to your awesome mailing list.
    Let them know that you will pop in a few high value other extras along the way so they should stay tuned to your mailings.​


    THE PRODUCT
    I trust that you can sort that out. There are countless numbers of PLR packages floating around waiting to be rejuvenated, re-branded and given a new life.
    Alternatively look to Fiverr or Minuteworkers for content creators who are willing to do the work for you - for a price of course.
    If you want to make more money, put more thought into the packaging and overall perception of your product. It must make the buyer feel that whatever price they pay for it, even if they get it free, that they have heavily underpaid and not the contrary.


    THE RESULT
    What usually happens is you will get a lot of subscribers who using the email marketing service with auto responder I recommended in STEP 1, you would send the free goodies to.

    The important thing to take note of is that you do not try to make money off of your list until you reach your first milestone. Mine was at 500. Once I reached that I did a small mailing and made a few bucks. I stayed focused and was able to grow slowly.

    Soon enough I would reach 1000 subscribers and see my earnings more than double as I got better at gaining hungry money splashing subscribers.
    Just keep working at it and depending on the price range of products you offer and the number of subscribers you will soon be pulling in the larger bucks monthly.
    Focus on growing before earning. The real money is to be made in larger lists of subscribers who get products which seem to be quality from you. They soon trust you enough to buy on impulse expecting that they will learn something new. If you keep bringing something fresh to the table interest will remain.

    Damn, how long does it take you to read dude? Of all the WSO's I've ever read, I don't think any have taken me that long to read.

    Also, this clearly isn't a 3 hour read, it's 10 minutes at the most.

    OP, pretty solid idea. There's a lot of money to be made in big IM launches, but I'd never thought of way of cashing in off those assholes that launch those products, aside from becoming an affiliate.

    if this thread isn't short enough then you obviously haven't the temprement or the patience or nouce to make it in IM...it's not as easy as 123...

    unlike what every1 keeps hyping to ya...

    it take alot of hard work at the start to make things easy later...

    Thanks OP for the great post. But could you maybe share your ideas on how you actually drove traffic to those squeeze pages?
    Did you buy traffic or did you just link to the page from your blog, forum and signature posts?

    As in my experience you don't get much traffic from forums.

    Thanks again for the share.

    Nice share op... I'm actually doing this with a 'guru review site' that I started called NakedGurus.com - my tagline is: Exposing the Internet Gurus.. haven't gotten it fully built out yet, but it is going to have a bunch of clickbank products with high gravity in the IM category.

    Eventually, I'm going to even buy access to the products and show videos of them, and give them my real review of it..

    My biggest goal though being in building a list that I can backsell to..

    Great method, if you want to drive lots of traffic to your squeeze page, so as to build list faster, mass mailing is one place i'd stick my neck

    Yeah your missing the key ingredient but you said not finished yet. Besides adding list capture install prosper202 or something like it. Not only can I tell as soon as I hit your page you're trying to push clickbank stuff on me but also one link has commishd the other has squeeze in the url. Like OP said don't try pushing stuff on me now get my email and then push shit on me. I'll give you my email if I think you might one day send me something useful or interesting but not if I see you just want to sell me clickbank products. Site is started good but use a page before it then send me to that after I give up my email. Sell me then sell me products.

    Then you are not offering the right stuff. I mean if you wanted to get everyones email from that warrior or dp forum it should be easy. Esp the newer guys, they will buy if you make a good sales pitch and keep the price right so getting their email should be worth it.

    OP told you how really. If I waned to get them all I would or pay some one to write up some interesting or useful info. Toss it into an ebook and use some pitch like was going to sell this but I am working on some bigger projects right now so am going to give this and my other 4 popular ebooks to the fist 100 people that sign up to my mailing list. I would prob just say you can download it on my site but would set up site so they have to enter their email and the download link is sent to them.

    I have seen people say that before so that might have been what they were doing, either way seems like it would work. Better yet go to some work from home or freebie type forums, those people are grasping at anything to make money. They truly believe they can some some dumb task and make a insane living at home, if you can sell those people you prob need to do something else.
