I have been thinking about what seems to be one of the easiest ways to build an email list, and I think it has to be by using Private Label Rights (PLR) products. Let me explain:
You can buy PLR products close to everywhere, some of the products are awesome and some are close to crappy. All you need to do is find a product that you think is awesome, buy it, and add your name to it as the creator/author. That’s the beauty of PLR.
What you do next is edit the title (you could also edit some of the text, if it’s an ebook/report) and add a new cover.
You do that by hiring a designer to create the graphics for you. It shouldn’t cost you more than $50, and you can find a lot of really creative designers at elance.
When you have added your name as the author, edited the title (this way it looks unique), and added an awesome new cover for it, you should give it away for free to people who subscribe to your newsletter (or signs up to your email list). If you have a cool title and a fancy cover, people will want it. And of course, the content needs to be great as well, but as I told you, there are a lot of really good PLR content.
Finally, if you want to earn money from your PLR ebook (or software), you could sell it using the $7 dollar script
For instance, a PLR ebook about Facebook marketing sold using the $7 dollar script, you’ll earn $7 every time someone buys the book from you. But that’s not the power of the script, each person can promote your PLR ebook and earn 100% commission, this way, a lot of people will hopefully promote the ebook (as long as they enjoyed it and think they can earn money by promoting it). As long as it’s 100% commission on each sale, you won’t earn a dime from the sales directly, but on the back end… this is where you can earn the money or build your list.
When people buy your Facebook marketing ebook for $7 from “a stranger”, they will be redirected to the download page. The download page is your page, and on this page you can sort of do exactly what you want as long as the buyers can download their ebook. You can offer them another ebook on a similar topic, like an advanced Facebook marketing ebook that will cost them $19.95 (you already know that they are interested in Facebook marketing, because they just bought the Facebook marketing ebook), you can present them with a One Time Offer or you can promote your newsletter (by giving away something really cool for free).
This is probably the easiest way to build an email list; just find a great PLR product (that’s not hard at all), edit the title, get some new cool graphics (at least a new cover), give it away to people for subscribing to your email list, or sell it using the $7 dollar script.
If you are interested, I can always give you some great PLR resources…
