    Hello everyone,

    I need ideas to build my current responsive list of about 70k email leads which are seeded over the last few years. They have joined me over a few online MLM and through last year some Clickbank products. But recently, I did a campaign for which there are at least 1000 unique visits but only one sale - maverick product.. guess too highly priced :(

    I have used the theviralscript with a non XXX site concept to try to get them to viral out more new visits.. but it seems like the webpage design and free ebook concept does not appeals.

    Any ideas on how to grow this current leads?

    Thank you,
    Alano

    :)

    Were you trying to grow this list or to convert sales better?

    Have you been able to segment this list into different demographic groups or market niche groups at all?

    Cheerio :)

    Hello Gifmore,

    Trying to grow this list firstly via a 3rd party autoresponder like Aweber. Previously, they were on my dedicated server autoresponder script which is hit badly by the bounces from Yahoo for the past few months (but after a week or so, it gets better).

    I have tempting to use a free gifts like a giveaway script.

    Yes, they have been segment into different demographic groups. Not really market niche.

    Any much useful advice is appreciated.

    If I understand you correctly, you have already segmented them and you want to grow the number of people in the various segments?

    If this is the case, it is probably good to test some offers out.

    Let's say 1 of your segments would be working professionals between 25 to 40 years old. Perhaps you could try have some lead capture pages for CPA offers or some sort of free report or free membership site to an interest area (e.g. make money, health, career development, dating, online games etc. etc. etc.). This should theoretically help you grow the number of people in the segment.

    On the other hand, if you actually mean that you wanted to convert (i.e. make sales) more of the people who are already on your list, then I thought perhaps you need to keep in mind:

    a) To make a sale, you need to place an offer in front of your list
    b) To know what offers convert better, you need to test different offers (e.g. split testing the emailing of an offer to your list. So if your list is 2000 people, you can send offer A to 1000 and offer B to 1000)
    c) I believe that it is important to maintain the trust they have in you, and at the same time, ensure that the offers you send or good quality products or services. Continuing to provide free information that they seek may be a good way but you again need to test it. For example, with free reports, free software or do a survey, hold a contest etc.).

    Did I understand your question correctly at all :p

    My Best to growing your list and serving your list well.

    Cheerio :)
    P.S. Perhaps you can do a joint venture with some folks and offer some product or service that belongs to another person to your list. You can also discover more about your

    Hello there,

    Yes, you understood my question very well and even answered on both sides.

    Well, it is on the first part of growing them. Any software or scripts that you know of, which you mentioned earlier on offering free membership or such, and which already has everything built-in without doing much manual work like creating ebooks or contacting JV partners as in the giveawayriches script.

    Wishing you a great weekend.

    And many t.h.anks too.

    Cheers :)
