    Here is a simple method to create an opt in list for any niche. (for those on a limited budget)

    1: Create a cheap website somewhere like godaddy (website tonight)
    2: Purchase an email marketing plan through the hosting company
    3: Through your email marketing plan, create an opt in link.
    4: Add content to your website, and place your opt in somewhere visible. (be very specific for better targeting)
    5: Post an ad with a link to your site on every classified ads site and forum possible.
    6: Sit back and wait a couple of days, and you should have a pretty good starter list.


    Ofcourse it is always better to purchase targeted leads from reputable people here on bhw, but this will help you get to the point where you can afford it if your funds are currently limited.

    Make a site with content, put an opt-in on it, and get traffic?

    I dunno guys, something about this whole thing seems off.
    Pics or it didn't happen.

    While we are at it, here is another KILLER method!

    1) Go download some PLR ebooks from the forum.
    2) Purchase a domain with the keywords "make money online" in it. EMD if you can!
    3) Upload the sales page that comes with the PLR.
    4) Do a little SEO to get it ranking on the first page for "make money online". If you have some cash flow, hit up fiverr for some really quick SEO results!
    5) Wait a few days.. you will have floods of visitors to your site because it will now be on page 1 for your keyword! How easy was that!

    Ok, you realize that his methods was for a 'starter list' and didn't involve SEO... right? The method of creating a simple, niche website with an opt-in list and spamming...errr... mass posting to (similar niche related) forums certainly sounds like it would work although I have not tried it myself.

    Right, the issue was that it is so vague that there is no way it could actually be beneficial to someone. It is a basic idea, rather than a "method".

    Like wth does "5: Post an ad with a link to your site on every classified ads site and forum possible." mean? Spamming, Ok. So now what? How to actually go about doing it? Protecting yourself? Once you do spam, does traffic come instantly in a few days? Absolutely not.

    I guess the main issue with this is that it is very misleading. It isn't a 6 step process, IM isn't a "nth" step process. People need to realize that they can't follow a tutorial to the t and be successful. Use your brain people, its there for a reason.

    Well, I've actually done this, and the traffic comes the same day as well as more within a few days. Within a week I had a list of nearly 300 opt ins from only one post in one place, so you are wrong..... But your opinion is valued here at bhw

    sarcasm :D

    You aren't getting it.

    Just by saying "spam the internet, the traffic will come" isn't a method. You claim you got 300 subs with a post on only one site, thats great, good for you. But THAT website is what you should be sharing, THAT traffic source is the actual important piece of info that you left out.

    There is a difference between being informative and spoon feeding. Don't be afraid to be informative. Maybe then you won't have to post threads in the lounge scrounging up some thanks :pat:

    Lol, you don't know me. I don't need thanks. I get plenty of thanks. And did you think that there is a good reason why I didn't mention the website? See I know my intentions. I know I have a heart, and I try to help others. You can criticize me for that all day, and at the end of the day, I will still do everything I can to help others. Thanks for your replies :)

    You guys are like :argue:

    And I'm like :happysad:

    Then he was like :laser::aargh4:

    Then you were like:yikes:

    When we really should be:frog::target:and:third:

    Hahahahaha

    Seriously though the topic was helpful and it was probably even more helpful for some newbies. Isn't the idea for a topic for more people to reply to the thread and help out with the "method" if you feel it is incomplete?

    Anyway, a few years back this was the way I got my first opt ins to a list that I was building. Also by the way you technically don't have to spam using this method, you could do it legitimately.
    Don't leave out yahoo answers either, whether you answer a question and post your link from your own account, or hire someone to do it from fiverr. This has always been a good way to get some instant traffic without waiting and doing a lot of SEO work.

    I think Bwaht have came to an understanding in a private manor. We just had different views, but both had the same interest in mind. And that common interest is whats best for bhw :)
