    For example, if I set up a campaign paying $0.50-1.00 per lead, do you think this could build a large responsive list?

    If you pay 1$ per lead maybe you have luck.
    But always have in mind to get a list of only targeted audience so you have better convertion on real sells.
    You don't wanna send hundreds of thousands of mails to get one sale right?

    Yes of course it could be. However it really depends on the autoresponder message that you're setting up and the lead quality you're getting from affiliates. It doesn't require money to create a list, you can also start building your list with free methods by giving them value.

    I'd highly advise you to promote these email submit forms only on related pages.

    It is indeed a very nice way to build a list but the quality of a mailing list is defined by how targetted it is.
    Also, when you pay $1 per email address, you can't afford to sell a low value item.
    So you would need to make sure your LP is designed to attact user for something they possibly want already. Basically, dress a barrier to filter your leads.

    You also have to choose a CPA network which is an authority and won't hesitate to shave upon fraudulous leads to guarantee a bit more your investment.

    If you go down this road, i would also try PPC ads to see which one offers the best ROI.
