I’m not sure if I recommend this or not, but it is interesting and certainly something to consider.
There’s a marketer who offers to build you an email list of 1,000 brand new subscribers for $1,000.
He takes on 3 or 4 clients at a time, charging each of them $1,000. Each client supplies a quality lead magnet, and all of the lead magnets are displayed on one squeeze page.
So let’s say the lead magnets are a video on driving traffic, a PDF on list building, a course about making money on Amazon, and a book about affiliate marketing. All of these are displayed on the squeeze page, and when someone enters their email address on that page, their email address is then added to all four autoresponders.
Thus, each person who paid $1,000 gets a list of 1,000 new subscribers, but all four of them get the same list.
The guy who is doing this also adds the new subscribers to his list as well. He is, in effect, getting paid to build his list. He buys solo ads to drive the traffic to build the lists, but this could also be done with any other traffic method. That’s why I said the profit is $2500 a month, which assumes $1500 to build the lists, which should be plenty more than enough.
Of course, then each marketer needs to start emailing their list and warming them up.
I think this would work best if all marketers involved offered free items in the same niche. For example, if all of them were about making money in Facebook Groups, or driving traffic, or creating awesome videos. It would be more targeted that way, and thus the lists would be much more focused.
A more general niche that could work is simply online marketing for newbies.
If you try this, there’s no reason you couldn’t ramp it up to doing it several times a month, always with 3 to 5 freebies offered as a package on one page.
