Simple Case Study – List Building for Free
I was talking to a guy the other day, and while I didn’t get all of the details of his business, I think I got enough that I can share it with you.
This guy doesn’t have products of his own. He doesn’t have a website. Heck, he doesn’t even have a squeeze page.
Yet, he’s building a massive email list using paid traffic in a self-liquidating manner. That is, he’s making as much or more money than he spends on traffic to build his list.
Have you heard of Click.org? It’s an amazing software for link tracking, and I highly recommend you check it out. But it does many other things, too, one of which is to place a pop-up on any affiliate page you choose.
So, let’s say you’re promoting the ABC product. You’ve got your affiliate page, and you know the offer converts.
But on your affiliate page of ABC product, you place a Click.org pop-up that grabs the person’s email address.
Essentially the affiliate page becomes your landing page—sales of the product pay for your traffic. You don’t have to write copy, deal with customer service, or any of that.
That’s what this guy is doing.
He offers an awesome lead magnet directly related to the product he’s selling. His traffic grabs the lead magnet and may or may not grab the product.
But what if they don’t sign up to his list?
Then he uses Click.org for retargeting. He brings visitors back to his affiliate page and back to his pop-up, and it only costs a few cents each.
He gets more sign-ups to his email list, and he makes more product sales.
And he does one more thing… he goes to similarweb.com, types in the URL of the sales page he’s promoting without the affiliate link. He scrolls down and finds the top referring sites to that offer. Then he goes to those same referring sites and buys the same traffic so that the offer goes through his affiliate link instead of directly to the product owner.
And again, he uses retargeting to bring prospects back to the sales page for pennies, and he makes even more sales.
All you need to get started with this business model is an autoresponder to capture your new email subscribers and Click.org.
As long as the offer you’re promoting pays for your advertising, you can list build as long and hard as you like. Your profits will come from the other things you sell to your list.
