    I just want to ask about the quality of the emails that you would get from youtube traffic. For example right now I have a youtube video getting about 100 opt-ins/day offering a free software download related to design. I am still not monetizing my list as it is not big enough yet.

    I've heard that free traffic for email building is bad. What do you guys think of this way.


    Oh and if anybody has some general ideas for the types of offers I should be sending them(of course after I send some free stuff first).

    Thanks for anyone willing to help.

    Youtube traffic is considered to be quality traffic. You MUST try to monetize your optins now itself and test it out. What are you waiting for? People build lists with SEO traffic too by offering free stuff and they still convert really well.

    The site you get traffic from is irrelevant. It's the quality of the traffic (how targetted it is to your niche) that is the key. Any website that allows you to pull quality traffic to your optin form is good.

    The reason why am waiting is because I don't think it is big enough. It is about 1000 opt ins so far so do you suggest I start mailing?

    Well as I have told you, I am getting the opt-ins from people trying to download a design software. Do you think that this list is targeted to software offers in general or the offers I send them have to be related to design?

    Yes youtube traffic is very good where you have to target for free in the first time and from next time onwards we can charge from them in any quality service.

    thanks. I am new to this and I am not sure clickbank is the best place to send offers to my list.
