    Hey all
    I picked up a little tip the other day from some guy's video on Youtube and I thought I'd post it and see what you think. This may be a new concept to some and probably not to others.

    This guy said he'd been an affiliate marketer for 15 years and in that time had built mailing lists of over 300k which he makes a lot of money from. His simple tip was this:

    Don't bother trying to get a name when list building. Simply ask for an email address if you are trying to get subscribers to your lists. You'll build bigger lists much faster.

    I have to say I kind of like this approach because it does rule out Mr M. Mouse and Kermit Frog subscribing to your lists all the time, and really, what is the main point of getting a persons name? To just personalize the follow ups?? Possibly find out their gender??? OK may be useful in certain areas.

    Anyhow, I'm now testing this idea out on some of my subscription forms and will post back with some results for you.

    Just realized I posted this on the wrong Forum. Hopefully it will get moved to the appropriate one. Duh!
