    How Would You Monetize A HUGE EMAIL LIST OF iTunes Users?

    Let's say you had a huge list of iTunes Users, What would be the best way you think to monetize this list?

    Any specific Clickbank products or something that would be useful to them?

    Pretty good, but I think selling a physical product to them would be better than adsense clicks no?

    CPA Lock a website about something like " Free $25 Itunes Giftcard " and send the link to them by email.

    I know very little about CPA...how difficult is this?

    Would content locking it actually lead them to a $25 gift card or am I simply lying about the gift card just to get them to fill out a survey or wutever?

    Very surprised this wasn't the first thing mentioned, simply send them to an iTunes gift card email submit offer. PM me if you need help finding an offer. Unfortunately I can't help you with mailing, so hopefully you already know how to send to your list.

    Yeah an reward/incentive site with itunes giftcards would be my first step too. But if it's really a huge list there like infinite juice in it, you just have to know how to squeeze it right. From the top of my head:

    Promote special physical editions of albums from amazon

    Make a little nice music news gossip site and monetize it with adsense, then promote it vith a newsletter to your list

    Promote free downloads of popular music, content locked. Just find links to albums uploaded on mediafire or whatever, there's nothing illegal in driving traffic to it

    There's lotsa stuff you could do with a list like this, just gotta taje action

    Start off by giving them free resources and tips. Build a rapport with them if you can, once they recognize you are giving them free info that actually works your trust and authority will go up with them. If you can monitor and measure their response to the free resources you give. Later on I would create an ebook related to their niche. The purpose of the ebook is to tell them how to take advantage of a special offer. But in order for them to get to the other side and accomplish the goal, they will need to go through your (CPA / Affiliate link / product / download / etc).

    If you make a youtube video showing the process from start to finish and show the end result successful, I think you will have a lot of conversions. Just be sure to make sure your affiliate manager doesn't scrub you to hard.

    The more value you offer to someone the more they will trust you. If you come right out of the gate trying to sell them something, it won't work as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Think somebody hit it right on the nail - the iTunes gift card CPA would convert very well.

    BlackHatCams really outlined a promotional strategy involving traditional lead building, but I think in this case, it would be counterproductive. People that use iTunes aren't in the mindset to read eBooks, they come from all walks of life - but we do know something that they have in common - they're spending money on iTunes and every one of them could use a gift card. They're so many people using iTunes that you don't really have to worry about running dry or losing a couple people.

    Creating a music site is great and all, but it's a lot of work and it's not guaranteed to make money, so remember what matters most at the end of the day - it's all about the benjamins, baby.

    100% agree sign up with cpabeyond or cpainfinity the owners are members here and are very helpful, grab a itunes gift card email submit shorten the link with what ever service you prefer or just buy a domain and redirect it.

    Well that's my 2 cents

    Ok I think I am going to go with this..

    But my question is...with content locking...

    If I set up this "content lock" how exactly does it work..

    will these people fill out a survey and then actually get an iTunes Gift Card or is this just what i say to get them to fill out the survey?
