    hey guys,
    ths is my first try on list building

    i joined aweber yesterday,

    i want to check out if "the money is in the list" true or false :p

    well

    what i did untill now:

    • choose an offer on clickbank that fit the site i am going to put the ad on
    • set up aweber with few messages
    • set up a nice landing page
    • bought an ad for 70$ on one of the biggest sites online for a full day (found out about the site on alexa.com)


    so i am trying to get asap 500 emails and try my best to make the most out of it :)



    Subscribers 16
    Max 500

    i will update once a while so stay tuned:bling:

    Update #1
    guys, seems like i am doing the right thing ! :p

    the traffic is low quallity, but i was able to make a profit out of it :D

    so those are the stats for now
    Views Uniques Subscribers Sales
    74,465 33,533 55 1
    Max 500 $21.31
    i've got a really low rate of opt ins compared to the traffic :p
    but i dont really give a [email protected] about the ones that close my ad

    since the ones that join follow around 3 steps to join the email list

    the traffic comes from a ptc site (bad traffic )
    but i've got on one of the biggest sites 400$ for ads

    so i am trying to make the most out of it

    Goals :
    first sale - check
    50 emails - check


    now i will wait for day #2 and #3
    to see if i get more sales from the ones that are already on my list


    so i already got a payment that will cover aweber for another month
    now i just want to fill my email list to the max!

    Are you doing media buying? where are you buying your ads?
    you could get cheap traffic on facebook aswell

    good luck

    You said you bought an ad for $70 but then you said you got the ad for free, could you clarify?

    Anyways, treat your list with care. What they say isn't false, the money is really in the list if you take great care of it.

    Make sure you read up on list building and best practices to ensure you get to most out of your new list.

    thanks for the tip
    the ad originally costs 70$ but i've got it for free

    i am playing with list building, not taking it too seriously
    just trying it out, since i've got alot of other projects and things i have to do first

    i am already seeing some success, made a sale and also got few emails from my list about the product
    will try my best to make the most out of it.


    i will read about list building today and will make sure to apply it

    First sale is always special when starting out with a new method. Good Luck.

    Just want you to know that no matter what happens, doesn't mean you will know the truth if the money is in the list. I think it's certainly true if you learn how to use your list properly and build it cost-effectively. A platform with hungry buyers works, there's no need for you to prove it.

    most of them are on day 2,

    thinking of a plan right now to hit the 200 subscribers mark,

    by the way, there is no forum for email marketing on bhw ? so where can i find info about it on bhw?

    *update*
    i am so dumb for not trying email marketing earlier

    this is going to be a small update, but

    ---

    okay so lets start :)

    i've hit the 160 subscribers on my email list,1$ total investment (joining aweber)
    i've promoted my landing page on a forum as my signature (not here)and got few ads using a "credit" (free) i have earned in the past
    i didnt done any research at all, just picked 2 offers wrote 8~9 emails to my email list

    and already started seeing sales, i've got 4 sales total, 80$+

    this is really fast without much work done so i've decided that i am going to invest more time working with clickbank
    and set up a site and a more stable traffic source

    i worked a total of 2~3 hours on setting everything up (making a nice landing page, joining aweber , copying and changing the emails)
    those are the most easy 80$ i have ever made online
    its alot of fun logging in to clickbank to see extra 80$ from something i took as a joke


    well right now i've got an app development project going on that i have to make for school (last year = big project :\)
    but the second i will finish it i am going all in with clickbank

    i am still going to update once a while , but i cant do any real work right now like setting a niche website and providing content,
    anyway extra 80$ everyweek from something like this is really nice

    Total Subscribers : 160

    Money Earned : 82.25
    Money Invested : 1$

    thanks for reading guys :) , if you have any questions feel free to comment and ask

    i will update again once in a while:cow04:

    You are confusing every body about your Investment. Can you pleas make it clear ?

    However, Congratulation.

    You can try Solo ad, Its really good for email marketing now a days.

    The $1 investment is for new account on Aweber, and $70 for advertisement, which he got it for free. Therefore the total investment is $1.

    Btw OP, what is your niche if I may ask? is it MMO? or Health/Fitness/Weight Loss?

    thanks :)

    i've got those ads for free, they worth 70$ = free



    i think its more of a media buy,not using social media sites much because from my view people are not looking to buy there anything at all
    but when they search google for something they are trying to find an answer (product) :)

    true,
    its around the MMO but not directly (you can say its MMO)
    i will try another niche next time,i am not going to build everything around mmo niche
