“How To Build A List Of 1,000 Subscribers
In 7 Days Or Less!” – Introduction
This report is packed with solid actionable content that you can go out and use right
away to generate over 1,000 subscribers to your list.
Most people reading this either doesn’t have a list, or their list is very small—too small
to give them much of an income. If that describes you, I have good news…
If you follow the formula found in this guide, you can have a list of 1,000 or more in a
very short time.
Generating a massive amount of leads is the lifeblood to any business, and this report is
going to show you how to generate over 1,000 subscribers in less than 7 days.
While others struggle to build a list, you will already have the formula for doing this over
and over again.
The result is that you can have a huge list is what feels like no time at all!
What’s different about this report is that this method works. I’m not going to waste your
time with methods that cost a ton of money and never pay off, or that don’t cost money
but also don’t work.
Using this formula you can realistically expect to generate over 1,000 new subscribers
per week, for as long as you use the formula.
Given that, you can see that building a huge five- or six-figure list is just a simple
There are larger companies out there that have been using this method for years and
they’re so busy implementing it that they don’t have time to teach it. More importantly,
they don’t want to create any new competition!
Armed with this information there will be nothing standing between you and
having a huge list.
Once you learn and master the techniques found in this report, list building will never be
a problem for you again.
To Your Success!
Why Every Business Needs Leads
I’m sure you’ve heard all the stories about how one internet guru sent an email and
made hundreds of thousands of dollars. I used to hear those stories all the time and
thought to myself, “How can I do that?!”
That’s when I came up with several different formulas for generating high quality leads. I
will be sharing one of those formulas with you in this report.
When I do that, you need to remember two important things…
First, as with anything other successful technique, this one takes a little time to master.
You can certainly learn the basics quickly (just reading this report will give you that), but
it’ll take some time to become an expert at it.
When you hear about the large amounts of money some marketer is making online, I’m
you don’t think about all the trial and error they went through to get where they are
today. But that trial and error is inevitable.
If you’ll read and apply what I teach you here, you’ll be able to skip some of that trial
Second, nothing, including this technique, is fool-proof.
I’m confident you can use this technique to add 1,000 or more people to your list on a
weekly basis, because I’ve done that myself. But you won’t necessarily get the same
results. Your list might add fewer or more people every week.
Here’s where you need to be brutally honest with yourself… if you added just 250 new
subscribers to your list every week, would you complain?
Even at that rate, you can have a list of 1,000 subscribers after a single month, and a
list of 12,000 subscribers within a year.
It’s a simple reality of Internet business that when your list grows to that size, it
becomes much easier to make money.
When you have a responsive email list
• You can create your own products and bank large profits within days
• You can promote other people’s products and rack up huge affiliate
When it comes to Internet business, it’s all about the numbers. In the end, that means
profits. The higher your profit is, the more successful you will be.
But how do you get those profits? In most cases, it comes down to being able to send
targeted traffic to an offer, whether it’s for your own product or someone else’s. And
there’s no better way to send targeted traffic than to be able to send an email to a list of
When you can do that, the other techniques and tactics you apply don’t matter as much.
They just generate higher conversions from your list. That’s great, obviously, but you’re
building on a foundation that already exists.
Now, let me put this in perspective to give you a good idea of how this works.
Let’s say that your list has over 2,000 subscribers on it and a top marketer in your niche
has over 30,000 subscribers.
You each send out an email promoting a $47 product and you both get 1% of your
subscribers to buy.
Simple math tells you that your competitor will generate over 300 sales for a total of
$14,100, and you’ll generate only 20 sales for a total of $940.
It should be obvious that having a larger list can make you more money, but having a
more responsive list can do the same thing.
Let’s say you get a 5% response rate from your list of 2,000 subscribers. Your sales
total will go from $940 to $4,700! That’s still not as much as your competitor, but it’s
500% more than you made before.
So what you need to learn to do is build a big list that’s also responsive over time.
That’s exactly what I created my Optin Profits Program, to show people
how to do. It makes the entire process of building a huge list easy!
Even better, it shows you how to keep the profits from your list
But in this report, I’m going to show you a quick and easy way to get the ball rolling.
That will help you build some momentum.
Remember it all starts with list building. Once you have a nice sized list all your work is
pretty much done. You can sit back and continually build the relationship with your list
so that they are responsive. You can basically be paid forever, and finally start seeing
the cash windfalls you hear other marketers talking about.
Remember this principle:
Your Internet income is primarily determined by the amount of
people you can reach with the click of a button.
Here’s how you can start building your list to boost your income…
The No-Hype List-Building Formula
Before I explain this process, I want you to understand why top Internet marketers have
The reason why you see your top competitors (the IM “gurus” everybody loves to
criticize these day) making so much money from their optin lists is because they get free
exposure from folks like you.
What I mean is that they have an army of affiliates promoting their products for free.
These affiliates spend their money on advertising to generate sales for them. The idea
is to create products with a moderate price tag so that it will give people incentive to
promote for them.
Then these marketers give away the bulk of their profits to their affiliates as a way of
saying thank you.
Why do they give away most (sometimes all) of their profits? Because the purpose of
the product isn’t to make money directly. The purpose is a build a list that they’ll make
money from later, on the so-called back end.
Imagine just 100 people promoting one product in every way they can. The resulting
sales would be very high. This in turn builds a very long list of buyers and subscribers.
You rarely ever see top name gurus without a good affiliate program. They know the
amount of leverage this brings. Imagine tapping into the assets of over 100 business
partners without having to spend a penny up front to do it!
Now that you know that little list building secret of the gurus, all you have to do is figure
out how to set yourself up with a system that will let you build a list on your own and
ultimately start attracting affiliates who can accelerate your list building for you.
It’s not hard at all. Simply follow this three step formula:
Step 1: Create Your Lead Magnet
This is going to be the content that entices people to give you their name and email
address in exchange for some valuable information. I will be going over several different
ways you can do this.
Step 2: Set Up Your Squeeze Page
This is also called a “money page” because this is where you will be directing all of your
traffic so your optin list grows.
Step 3: Generate Traffic
I will include a few techniques that will easily drive instant traffic to your squeeze page.
Let’s get into the nuts and bolts of this formula.
Creating Your Lead Magnet
The easiest way to create a lead magnet is to create a short report that you’ll give away
But you need to know that offering a free report is only one strategy for
attracting subscribers. I’m covering it here because it’s the one most
readers will be most familiar with.
In my Optin Profits Program, though, I cover 2 other strategies that are
super hot right now…
And I show you how to create products with them fast. These additional
strategies can skyrocket your results!
The beauty of this is that in most cases you don’t have to write the report yourself.
These days you can outsource the job at extremely low cost.
All you have to do is make sure your ebook adds incredible value to your potential email
subscriber. That’s a compelling offer that most prospects won’t be able to pass up, and
it will predispose them to buying from you in the future.
You have two choices when it comes to writing an ebook:
1. Writing it yourself
2. Outsourcing it
I will show you how to do both, so you can know what to do regardless of the option you
Writing It Yourself
When creating a short report, I suggest that the page length be 20-30 pages. The object
is to deliver quick, helpful information, not a full blown course.
You start with some basic knowledge about any niche you’ve been targeting. If you’re
new to the niche, it would be a good idea to pick up an ebook from one of your top
competitors in that niche and see what they’re talking about!
Once you have a good idea of what topics you should cover, creating your report is
First, write a table of contents. This will serve as an outline when you’re writing. To get
ideas, find a related ebook to use as swipe material. Don’t just copy the material,
though. Use it as a way to jog your own brain to come up with your own ideas.
Next, do what I call filling in the blanks. This is a simple process that helps me crank out
very valuable e-Books time and time again. It starts with visiting popular article
directories to get ideas for content.
Let’s say that I’m in the “guitar” niche wanting to teach someone how to play the guitar. I
can do a simple Google search like so:
As you can see, EzineArticles.com alone has over 20,000 articles you can use as
reference when creating your own material.
NOTE: Please do not copy articles unless you leave a link to the original
author in your resources section.
But if you’d rather not write the report yourself…
Outsource Your Writing
You can get your report written for about $50 easily, but you need to be a little creating
in how you go about it.
The idea here is not to outsource the writing of a report, because freelancers will want
to charge you more for that.
Instead, take your table of contents and create article titles for each topic. This way you
can outsource 10 articles as opposed to a report of 20-30 pages.
I recommend using RentACoder (www.rentacoder.com) because they have some pretty
decent article writers there that can write for about $3 per article.
This is what a job listing at that site would look like:
HEADLINE: Ten 400-600+ Word Articles Based On 10 Keyword Phrases -- $3-$5 per
DESCRIPTION: I am looking for someone to write quality articles based on a list of
keyword phrases related to playing the guitar.
1. Play guitar like the Beatles
2. Learn to play guitar by ear
3. The problem w/ free online guitar learning
4. Teach yourself to play guitar
5. How to play bass guitar
6. How to play electric guitar
7. Master Simple guitar songs
8. Guitar bar chords
9. How to play acoustic guitar
10. Playing guitar online
Each article should be a minimum of 400 words and up to 600+ words in
length. The keyword phrase should be included in each headline, twice in
the first paragraph and then at least once in each subsequent paragraph.
The goal is to create relevant articles that readers feel are informative that
also do well in the search engines.
All content you provide should be original and publishable by me with no
fear of infringing on someone’s copyright. Articles that are borrowed,
copied or compiled from other sources will not be accepted. No copy and
I will pay a fixed $5 per article with a 10 article minimum. If we work well
together you can expect a lot more work from me.
This is an easy job for someone who knows what they’re doing.
Your First Name
The headline grabs attention with the nature of the work and the rate you’re willing to
pay. The description specifies exactly what you’re looking for (that’s very important) and
will attract freelancers who are looking to earn more work…which means they’re likely
to do a better job.
Setting Up Your Simple Squeeze Page
Your sole objective with this strategy is to collect as many email addresses as you
possibly can. You’ll do this by using a squeeze page and converting your site visitors
into subscribers you can contact over and over again with new offers.
Don’t worry if you don’t know anything about building a website. I will be showing you
the most proven way to get setup with a squeeze page.
The design is clean cut and may not look like much, but is known to convert at
about 75%. That means 75 of every 100 visitors will enter their name and email
Even being very conservative, the design I’m going to show you should convert at 50%
or better. There are no guarantees, of course, but my testing has shown me this result
again and again.
The industry standard is a low 20%. Do you want to know why? It’s often due to what
you might call overdesign of the page.
There are lots of fancy distractions, and objects popping out at a person. That can cut
your conversion rate dramatically.
If you’ll follow my advice and create a clean, simple squeeze page, you’ll like the results
a lot better.
But first, there are a few things to do before you get to designing your page.
Select A Domain Name
The first thing you’ll need to do is select a domain
name. You can do this by using tools such as
This tool lets you quickly and easily search to see if
premium domain names are available.
In the Optin Profits Program I explain how you can select a keyword
optimized domain name without all the hassle — just point and click!
Select An Autoresponder Service
An autoresponder service lets you manage your list and send them emails to pitch
offers to them. In other words, it’s your bread and butter.
The two companies I recommend are:
1. GetResponse – www.getresponse.com
2. Aweber – www.aweber.com
These two are the leaders in the autoresponder market. Each of them gives complete
video tutorials and walkthroughs to get you setup in no time.
You may also be interested in making passive income of up to 10 levels deep with an
autoresponder and web hosting, if so you can see www.MakeMoneyWithHosting.com
Design Your Squeeze Page
After you have selected a domain name and chosen an autoresponder, you can design
your squeeze page.
When I say design, I really mean write the copy that will entice your site visitors to optin
to get your free report.
Designing websites and creating squeeze pages is probably not your thing, so let me
make it easier by giving you a template to copy. Your squeeze page will look like this:
You can download the template for free here:
That template obviously has some parts you’ll need to modify to fit your free offer.
You can make the modifications pretty easily in a “What You See Is What You Get”
(WYSIWYG) HTML editor. There are plenty of HTML editors you can use that are
newbie friendly such as:
1. My Free Website Builder (http://www.myfreewebsitebuilder.com)
2. Kompozer (http://kompozer.net)
The template makes your life easier, but for your education, let me go over what I
consider to be the top five components of a high-converting squeeze page:
1. An attention-grabbing headline. You have only seconds to grab a reader’s
attention and compel him to keep reading. That’s why it’s good to use a “formula”
for your headline. Here are a couple alternatives for what your headline could be:
Who Else Wants To Learn How To [your topic] Like A Pro?
These Are The Same Secrets I Used To Master [your topic]
How To [your topic] Like A Pro
These Are The Same Secrets I Used To Master [your topic]
Now, if you didn’t actually use the same secrets to master this, you can substitute
something like this for that second line:
You Can Use These Secrets To Master [your topic]
2. A subheadline that continues the momentum. Remember, you have only
seconds to grab attention and keep it. Your subheadline should mention the top
one or two benefits of your report, and tell people how soon they can have all of
that wonderful information.
3. Bullets to emphasize your top 3-5 benefits. Benefits are what your report will
do for a reader. Will it make it smarter? Save him time? Save him money?
Mention those! Keep them to a single sentence each, and include one benefit per
bullet. You only need 3-5.
4. Specific instructions about what to do. It probably sounds a little silly, but if
you don’t tell people what to do, they’ll be confused! Give them specific
instructions about filling out the sign-up form to get your report.
5. A privacy statement. People are completely swamped with email spam these
days. That means they will be wary of giving you their name and email address.
If you include a brief statement about how you’ll keep that information private,
that will increase your conversion rate.
The template contains those elements, but now you know what they are so you can
include them on every squeeze page you create, whether you use the template or not.
Once you have made all the changes you are ready to upload it to your server and start
I go over 5 different kinds of squeeze pages you can use for your list
building efforts in my Optin Profits Program. But I go way beyond that!
Squeeze pages are only one of the list building methods I cover.
The advanced material in this program will blow your mind!
Upload Your Squeeze Page
To upload your squeeze page to the web for everyone to see, all you need is an FTP
client and the information given to you by your hosting company.
Here is how you would go about uploading.
1. Download a free FTP Client if you don’t have one. Filezilla (http://filezilla-
project.org ) is a good one.
2. Login to your site. Use the information your hosting company gave you and
click the “Quickconnect” button:
3. Find the squeeze page you just edited and upload to your server. You can
do this by clicking and holding the file and dragging to your “public_html” folder
on your server
Once the file uploads, you will be able to view it online at your domain name.
These are the steps you should have completed so far:
1. You created your free report, either by writing it yourself or outsourcing it.
2. You set up your squeeze page using the free template for a quick, simple, high-
converting squeeze page.
3. You uploaded the page to your web server.
Now that your squeeze page is all set up and ready to go, it’s now time to drive some
traffic to your website and start building your list.
Easy And Proven Traffic
There are many ways to drive traffic to a website, but I want to focus on ways that will
help you build a list as fast as humanly possible.
I’ll describe the best five methods that I know work well. Two cost money, but if you
follow my instructions, you won’t risk losing a ton of cash.
The remaining three methods are either free, or can be free.
And these are just the start! My complete Optin Profits Program gives
you five additional traffic strategies that can have prospects mobbing
your squeeze page!
Only one of those strategies costs anything…the rest are super-effective
free traffic methods that I’ve used myself, so I know they work VERY well!
Method 1: Pay Per Click (PPC) Advertising
The traffic method of choice is PPC, or to be more specific, Google AdWords.
Many people are turned off by how expensive AdWords can be, and let’s be honest, it
can be very expensive.
Most people assume that’s just the reality they have to live with. And most people
who’ve tried AdWords think about the amount of money they lost trying to get traffic to
their site using PPC.
But I’m going to show you the correct way of doing PPC marketing. This method will
save you all kinds of time and money. It all starts with choosing the right keywords.
PPC Keyword Research
There is no need to bid on expensive keywords that will not bring you any money.
That’s throwing money away.
What most people don’t realize is that there are only a select few keywords that will ever
convert into action, meaning optins and sales. That’s actually very good news for you,
Most converting keywords have already been
researched by your competitors, so you simply have to
use software tools to find them and create an AdWords
campaign around them. I recommend two tools.
The first is Keyword Spy, which you’ll find at
www.KeywordSpy.com. It’s a great tool that’s easy to use, and gives you a ton of
information about what youre competitors
are doing. I’ll go into more detail about
this one in a minute.
The second tool is Spyfu, which you’ll
find at www.Spyfu.com. This tools gives
you information similar to KeywordSpy, so you can see what your competitors are up to.
Both of these software services log your competitor’s most profitable keywords. This
data is worth its weight in gold, believe me.
So the next step would be to find all of your top competitors. That means searching
Google with some of your top keywords to see who you are competing with.
Using the “play guitar” niche as an example here is what I came up with.
The URLs that I circled are the domains that I would research to find their keywords and
use them as references when creating my own AdWords campaign.
Focus your efforts on finding only the top five keywords, because you want a focused
AdWords campaign the highest odds of making a profit.
Using Keyword Spy
To find your top five keywords, you want to seek out one of your top competitors by
doing a Google search and seeing who is in the “sponsored” search results, meaning
the paid adds at the top or on the right.
I have chosen “Best-Guitar-Lesson-Review.com” for this example. I will simply put their
domain name in “Keyword Spy” like so:
After you hit Search, it should give you their list of Paid Keywords that they are bidding
on. If you are using the free trial version here are the results that you will see:
As you can see, all of the hard work is already done for you! The Position column tells
you what position they are in when they advertise on Google (meaning they have an
AdWords ad). In this case, the higher the better.
Your five keywords are the ones with the highest positions shown in this results table.
So for this example they would be:
1. learning guitar
2. guitar learning
3. learn to play classical guitar
4. learn guitar scales
5. guitar lessons for beginners
Setting Up Your AdWords Campaign
Once you have chosen your top five keywords to target, you want to setup an AdWords
campaign that has five ad groups. That means only one ad group per keyword.
So in each ad group you will have the broad, phrase and exact match type in the
keywords section. It should look similar to this:
Learn to play guitar
“Learn to play guitar”
[Learn to play guitar]
Follow that same format for each ad group. This may take some time but it is well worth
it, I assure you.
The reason you want to target just a few keywords is because you have done the
research to see what keywords are the most profitable.
There is no need to bid on thousands of keywords, wasting all of your advertising
dollars on keywords that will never bring you money.
Focusing in on the profitable keywords makes it a sure bet that your conversions
will be higher and your pockets fatter.
At this point, you should be ready to launch your campaign. All you need to know now is
compute your campaign budget.
Computing Your Campaign Budget
I want to give you some hard numbers to help you see what kind of advertising budget it
will take to get 1,000 subscribers in 7 days. That way you’ll know the type of results your
advertising dollars should be bringing in.
To figure out how much of a budget you need you will just follow this simply formula:
(Amount of Subscribers Desired) x 2
In this case, you want 1,000 subscribers so the formula would be:
1,000 x 2 = 2,000
That 2,000 number represents the amount of visitors you need to hit your squeeze
page, assuming your page converts at 50% (that was the conservative estimate,
Assuming that conversion rate, you multiply the desired amount of leads by two.
If you had a conversion rate of 25%, then you would multiply the amount of desired
subscribers by four.
That’s a very conservative number, but feel free to use it if you want to.
If your squeeze page is converting at less than 25%, an AdWords campaign is not worth
it. How can you tell if this is the case?
You have to get about 200-300 clicks and see how they convert. If you get 25 optins for
every 100 clicks, you’re fine. If you get less than that, you should change your squeeze
page, or not use PPC as your traffic method.
Determining Your Cost Per Click (CPC)
How much will 2,000 clicks cost for the keywords you selected?
(It should be obvious at this point why you only want to target five keywords. It not only
gives you a more targeted campaign, which will reduce your cost, but it also makes the
Using the “guitar” example above, you want to see what the CPC is for each keyword.
So head over to the Google Keyword Tool.
Enter your five keywords and filter the results to “Don't show ideas for new
keywords…” This way you get results for your keywords only.
Filtering this way lets you get right to the keywords you want, without having to wade
through ones that you can be sure won’t pay off.
Next. show the CPC results by clicking the drop down menu:
This will show the CPC for each keyword:
With this data you can see
how much you should except
to pay for your 1,000
For this example, on average, you should expect to pay $0.80 per click. The math for
your total cost for 2,000 clicks looks like this:
$0.80 x 2,000 = $1,600
Normally you will not pay that much because your CPC will vary. To get a good ballpark
figure, take 20% off the total price. In this example you end up with $1,280.
That’s close to $1 per lead which is really good, especially if you plan on building a long
term relationship with your subscribers.
Setting your Daily Budget
To set your daily budget, divide your estimated total cost ($1,280 in this example) by
seven (the days in a week) to get $182 per day.
This is what you will set your daily budget to for your AdWords campaign.
You may be thinking that $1,280 is an awful lot of money to spend in a week. If you look
at this as a business investment, it is a drop in the bucket.
Also, I was being really modest with my estimates because your conversions and CPC
may be a lot different depending on your niche.
Here’s why the numbers will work out in your favor almost every time…
Let’s say you have your 1,000 subscribers and you send an email promoting a product
where you receive a $47 commission.
If you can get just 2% of your subscribers to buy, that’s over 20 sales when you
send an email!
Those 20 sales at $47 in commission per sale give you $940 profit. You’ll make all of
your $1,280 back, plus some more, after your second email.
If you find a product that pays you a $97 commission, a 2% conversion on your email
means you’ll make back all of your money plus a healthy amount after your first email.
It’s easy to see how these numbers will work out in your favor. Let’s assume:
• You’re starting from scratch with no list at all
• You’re paying $1,280 for 1,000 new subscribers per week
• You’re sending one promotional email per week
• You’re getting 2% conversion on that email
• You do this for four weeks
Here’s what your subscriber growth, revenues, costs and profits would look like:
Week 1 Week 2 Week 3 Week 4
New Subscribers 1,000 1,000 1,000 1,000
Total Subscribers 1,000 2,000 3,000 4,000
Promo Conversion 2% 2% 2% 2%
Sales 20 40 60 80
Commission/Sale $47 $47 $47 $47
Promo Profit $940 $1,180 $2,820 $3,760
PPC Ad Cost $1,280 $1,280 $1,280 $1,280
Net Profit $-340 $600 $1,540 $2,480
Cumulative Net Profit $-340 $260 $1,800 $4,280
The numbers aren’t hard to understand, and that bottom line is exciting, isn’t it?
Your subscriber count rises by 1,000 every week, from 1,000 to 4,000 in Week 4. You’re
spending $1,280 every week to make that happen, but you’re also promoting to your list
once per week.
Those promotions are bringing you increasing profit every single week as your
In the first week, you lose money, because your list isn’t big enough yet…but you only
lose $340 for a single week! By week two, you make a net profit of $600, and your
cumulative profit is positive.
From there, your profit grows every week.
Also remember that not every scenario will lose you money in the first week. If your
CPC is lower than we assumed, or our email conversion is better, you might actually
make a profit from the start.
And you can do this as many times as you like.
The point is simple. Stripping away all of the jargon about PPC, you’re paying for
subscribers to your list. Those subscribers will make you money every time you send an
email to your list.
That means the long-term ROI can be potentially huge. Tell me any other marketing
method where you invest once and get paid for life!
I designed my Optin Profits Program to virtually guarantee your long-
term ROI by showing you how to write emails that keep the money
The main manual for the program contains an entire chapter on writing
killer email copy. You’ll learn how to write tempting subject lines, how to
spark curiosity, how to build trust, and much more.
Using The Content Network
What I’ve just described is generally true for using AdWords, but you should be aware
that there are really two different parts to AdWords itself:
• There’s the search network, which is having your ads show up to the right of the
search results when somebody using Google to search for something (Google
calls these keyword-targeted campaigns), and
• There’s the content network, which is having your ads show up on targeted
websites in your niche (Google calls these site-targeted campaigns)
Most AdWords guides out there will tell you not to advertise on the content network,
because the click-through rates for ads can be much lower, and the conversion from
those ads is usually worse than search clicks.
The reason most guides recommend not using the content network is that the authors of
those guides don’t know how to get good results from it.
But I do, and it’s not that hard. In fact, once you know how to do this, you can get great
results, because so many people avoid the content network!
There’s one key to making a site-targeted campaign successful:
Don’t let Google have 100% control of where your ads show up
Ultimately, Google does control things since they own AdWords, but you can help them
target your ads better.
You’re going to target sites that agree to host ads through Google’s AdSense program
(advertisers use AdWords, ad hosts use AdSense). Here’s how to do it:
• Create a highly targeted ad. This is exactly what you would do for a keyword-
targeted ad, but you’ll be putting that ad on the content network instead.
• Target highly relevant pages, not sites. The site should be relevant, obviously,
but what really matters is that your ad shows up on a page that’s highly relevant
for the keyword somebody might be interested in.
If you focus on doing those two things, Google is much more likely to put your ads in the
best locations, which will boost your clicks and give you better conversion.
Finding highly relevant pages on websites isn’t hard.
Just Google your keywords and see which sites are in the search results (the free ones,
not the paid ads, which are likely to be your competitors). Check each page in the top
10 to see if it will be a good fit. Here are two things to look for:
• Does the page host ads? It doesn’t make sense to target a page that doesn’t!
• Are the ads attractive? The first way they can be attractive is that they look
nice, but they attract attention. If they blend in too much, nobody will see them,
but if they’re ugly, people are likely to ignore them as well. And ideally you’ll see
the ads in places that are likely to get looked at the most on a page, like the
Find some good targets and write down their URLs.
When you create your AdWords campaign, you can specify that you want to put ads in
the locations you choose, like this:
Once you’ve created your ad group and written your ad, you can go to the Networks
tab tell Google what pages you want to put your ads on:
The Networks tab shows you which networks you’re targeting within the AdWords
system. In this case, you’re targeting the content network.
Within that, you can have managed placements, which you can control, automatic
placements, which Google manages for you.
Click the show details link next to Managed placements to see your options there.
They’ll show up right below.
When you click the Add placements button, Google shows you the text box where you
can add the URLs you want to target:
You can enter the URLs there and set your default bid for ads in your managed
And Google can actually help you find some great pages to place ads on. You can click
the Try the placement tool link to see the placement tool.
That tool lets you search for possible sites to target in four different ways:
• You can browse categories (like Animals or Health)
• You can browse topics (like gardening)
• You can have Google tell which pages on a given site are available for ad
• You can specify you demographic audience and find pages that match those
Targeting your ads to specific site pages this way is very likely to boost your clicks and
reduce your costs.
I obviously can’t include an entire AdWords ad copywriting course in this
short report…but my Optin Profits Program tells you how to do it even
when you’re not an ad writing pro…
In fact, I’ll show you the easiest method I’ve ever found for writing
killer ads, and it also happens to be the way that will make you the
And I’ll also tell you how to boost the Quality Score of your squeeze
page so you can cut your CPC dramatically!
A Word About Google Quality Score
Without getting into too much technical detail, Google assigns a quality score to pages.
That score is based on how relevant a page is to the keywords a person might be
That means the score is at least partially based on the keywords you’re targeting in your
It’s a myth that Google penalizes squeeze pages just because they’re squeeze page.
That they penalize is a low quality score.
If the squeeze page you’re trying to attract traffic to with AdWords ads has a low quality
score, Google can “slap” you with a penalty that makes your CPC prohibitively
expensive (sometimes $10 per click).
The simple way to avoid that is to make sure your squeeze page satisfies Google and
increases your chances of getting a decent quality score. Here are a few tips:
• Target your ad groups. If you’re following my earlier advice, you should already
be doing this! The more targeted your ad groups are, the less chance there is of
Google thinking your page isn’t relevant for the keywords you’re bidding on.
• Include your main targeted keyword on your squeeze page. That means
especially in your title tag, your main headline and at least a couple times in the
copy of your page. You should strive for about 1-3% keyword density, meaning
about 1-3% of the words on your page should be the keyword you’re targeting.
Doing this helps Google decide that your page really is about the keyword you’re
targeting (without “stuffing” the page with a keyword, or using it a lot to try to fool
Google…which will your quality score). In other words, including your keyword
helps make your content relevant, which is what Google is after. And including
your keyword will also help you get free organic traffic from Google and other
search engine search results over time, so you’ll see me recommend including
keywords in content for pretty much every traffic strategy I recommend.
• Include links to other pages, but in a way that doesn’t kill your conversion.
Google likes links to other pages, but you don’t want to distract people and keep
them from opting in on your squeeze page. So include links to a simple contact
Method 4 a bit later in this report), but include those links at the bottom of your
squeeze page. The footer might be a good place to put them. And make sure
those pages use your main targeted keyword at 1-3% density too.
• Use professional looking graphics, a header, and nice layout. Google is a
“visual” company when it comes to ranking landing pages. If you use nice looking
graphics, your quality score is likely to go up.
• Don’t mislead anyone. This is a big factor! If you make extravagant promises
(like specific income claims), Google can easily and justifiably penalize your
squeeze page. If you offer a helpful, free report, the chances of being penalized
If you’ll follow that simple advice, you shouldn’t find your squeeze page “slapped” by
Method 2: Press Releases
A great way to get the word out about your squeeze page very fast is to issue a press
release about it.
A press release is a public announcement about something that members of the press
can pick up and essentially advertise.
But contrary to what you might be thinking, press releases are not just for big
companies—they can be a powerful promotional tool for you.
If you want to create a press release to get traffic for your squeeze page, you need to
keep a few things in mind:
1. Press releases have to be newsworthy. You should build buzz by announcing
2. A press release needs to be exciting. Nobody will click through to your site if
your press release is boring. Think of a press release like sales copy without a
direct sales pitch.
3. You need to use a “formula” for writing a press release. News and content
organizations who look for press releases want to see certain things. If you don’t
give them what they want, they’ll simply reject your press release. Fortunately,
the “formula” is not hard to learn.
“The 5-Step Press Release Formula”
A press release that is likely to be picked up by various news agencies has five key
• A keyword-rich, compelling headline. This is another place where you want to
use your one main targeted keyword. I suggest following an approach like this:
Main Headline Of 80 Characters Or Less, Including Your Keyword
Short subheadline (without quotation marks) to build interest
You should include your main targeted keyword in the rest of your press release
as well, at a keyword density of 1-3% (remember, that means your keyword
should show up 1-3 times for every 100 words of your press release).
• An announcement, not a sales pitch. Mention briefly what you’re announcing,
perhaps something like this:
[your website name] just released a groundbreaking free report which
[what your report teaches, emphasizing the main benefit]. [link to your site]
• Mention your niche’s problem, and the possible solution. That solution will
be your free report, of course! At least that’s the first step toward the solution.
• Include a strong call to action, with instructions. You have to be careful with
this one. It shouldn’t be quite like a sales page where you give people an order
button and try to enhance the urgency. Instead, remind a reader of your main
benefit, and tell him how to solve his problem…by downloading your report. You
might say something like this:
[your audience: golfers, lawyers, etc.] often struggle with [major problem
you’re targeting]. The report at [your site] cuts the problem down to size
and offers a neat, simple solution. It’s currently free for immediate
You can sometimes be more forceful than that. Read similar press releases at
the various services I’ll mention in a minute to see how much of a sales pitch
• Finish with your contact information. Mention who you are, your website
name and even potentially an email address. Remember, one goal of a press
release is to get traffic to your website, but another goal is to get potentially some
large news organizations interested in your announcement. They may want to
contact you about it, so offering some basic contact information can help them
get in touch.
Once you have a press release crafted, you should target the top press release sites.
Here are the ones I recommend:
Several of those cost a little money, typically $15-360 depending on the exposure you
want to get. But some, like PRLog.org, are free.
If you want some samples or templates to model (often a good idea), you can find some
at those sites. For example http://www.webwire.com/FormatGuidelines.asp.
Or you can Google “press release template” to find all you’ll ever need.
And once you’ve experimented with a press release, you’ll want to scale this method up
and maximize your traffic. I call this the Press Release Power Traffic Booster, and it’s
• Create 5 different press releases for your site. These can be similar to each
other, but they should be different enough to “feel” different. Each could talk
about a different aspect of the problem your report solves, for example.
• Submit each release to a different press release site every day for 5 days.
This gets you maximum coverage from different sources.
Press releases are a powerful but frequently overlooked traffic method. That’s good
news for you…
If you learn how to do it well, you can get large amounts of highly targeted traffic very
Method 3: Targeted Blog Advertising
If you want to get laser targeted traffic in a niche, you need to know where the people in
that niche congregate.
They’re probably not just using Google to search for things—they’re congregating with
other people who are interested in what they’re interested in.
In most cases, that means social media sites, and one of the most popular kinds of
information sharing site are blogs.
There are blogs for just about any niche topic you can image, and if you target your
advertising at popular blogs in your niche, you can get loads of highly targeted traffic
quickly. All you have to do is find blogs in your niche to advertise on.
One easy way to do this is to use Google’s Blog Search at
You can search for blogs in your niche and get all sorts of possibilities:
What you’re actually finding here are blog posts which contain your search terms. The
blog itself might be about a different topic, so you might have to do some digging.
That approach is admittedly a bit hit or miss, because there’s no way to know which of
those blogs accept ads. But that’s not necessarily bad, because your “ads” on blogs can
take two forms:
• Paid ads, very much like AdWords ads
• “Free” ads, where you give people a link to your squeeze page in a comment you
post to the blog
That second type of blog advertising is as simple as it sounds, but you have to be
Bloggers typically don’t run their blogs to host your ads—they want to provide content
for their niche, and they want commenters to start discussions that other readers will
find interesting or helpful.
So posting a blatant ad on a blog is likely to upset the community, and might not even
show up, because the blogger might reject the comment.
When you post a comment, make sure you offer helpful information that “fits” the
community of the blog you’re posting on. Use your keyword at least once in your post,
but you don’t have to worry so much about striving for 1-3% keyword density if your post
is significantly less than 100 words (don’t “stuff” your post with keywords).
The first option—buying paid ads on a blogs—can be a financially lucrative one. To do
this, you’ll want to find an advertising network that brings advertisers and blogs together
so they can find each other.
That might mean a site like http://web.blogads.com:
That site lets you search for blogs that offer advertising space in just about any niche
you can imagine.
Another option, often cheaper, is to use http://www.blogsvertise.com:
This site doesn’t have any monthly fees, and their system is really creative. Once you
register as an advertiser, you can search their blogger inventory to decide where to
advertise, and buy several different types of ads.
They have two different pricing options. You can pay a flat fee of $20 for each blog you
advertise on, and have the Blogsvertise staff choose the quality of the blog.
Or you can pick the blogs you want to advertise on, with pricing starting as low as $4
and going up to $50 (the typical price is $5-30).
Considering that a PPC ad can cost even more than that per day, targeted blog
advertising can be a great deal.
There’s no guarantee you will get clicks, but the odds are good that the clicks you do
get will be relatively inexpensive.
You’ll also be getting a permanent link from a blog to your squeeze page, which will
help get you even more traffic over time.
Method 4: Article Marketing
Article marketing isn’t new, but it’s still one of the best ways to get free targeted traffic to
any website you want.
Your goal is to:
• Write an article that targets keywords in your niche. The ones you found
when you were doing your PPC research are fine to use here.
• Get the article posted at one or more article sites. You want to target the
ones that are likely to get your article ranked well on Google for those keywords.
More on that in a minute.
• Include a link in your article to your site. This will get you targeted traffic
directly to your site.
Here’s a simple strategy for writing an article for any niche you want:
• Make your article about 500 words. Include an introductory paragraph that
introduces the topic, then several paragraphs to cover it, then a concluding
paragraph to remind the reader of the key points.
• Come up with a catchy title for that topic. It should include the keywords
you’re targeting. For example, you could write an article called, “Top 5 Cooking
Secrets Of The Great Chefs”.
And by the way, put your targeted keyword in the article title. Article directories
will often use your title text in their HTML <title></title> tag for the page,
which will help you rank better on Google for that keyword and likely get you
more free traffic over time.
• Write a paragraph introducing the topic. You could talk about the simple
techniques great chefs use to whip up fancy recipes fast.
• Write at least three more paragraphs about the topic. If you’re writing a “Top
10” or similar article, each item in the list could be a paragraph.
• Write a closing paragraph. This should summarize the key point of the article.
By the time you’re done with that exercise, you’ll almost certainly have 500
• Include your keyword at least a few times in the article. Specifically, you want
to include it once in the opening paragraph and probably once in the closing
paragraph. Strive for 1-3% keyword density in your article overall.
• Put a link to your site in your author/resource box. Most articles let you
include a small section at the end of an article to identify yourself, advertise your
site, etc. Your resource box might say something like this:
Article by [your name]. If you liked this article, you’ll love the free content
you’ll find at his site: [link with your keyword in it].
The link to your site should have your keyword in it, because it will help you rank
higher for that keyword (it’s a link Google rewards because it includes your
keyword in a contextually helpful way).
As a slight variation on this, you can also pitch your free squeeze page offer in
your resource box, like so:
Article by [your name]. Did you like this article? Then I’d like to offer you
my free report on [your topic]. Just the first tip in this report can put $1,000
in your pocket in the next 60 days. Grab your free copy here: [link with
your keyword in it]
• Don’t tell the entire story in your article. It’s much better to tell part of the
story, and then direct a reader to your site to get the rest. You might do that by,
for example, giving five tips in your article and saying there are five more free tips
at your site. You can say that in your resource box, like this:
Article by [your name]. If you liked this article, you’ll definitely want to get
the 5 additional free tips you’ll find right here: [link with your keyword in it].
• Submit to the two best article directories. I strongly recommend that you
submit to these two:
Google loves those, and so do information publishers who want to use articles
from article directories.
That simple article marketing technique will let you start getting traffic immediately, and
it won’t cost you a penny.
To get the best results, consider writing at least three related but slightly different
articles and publishing them all.
That will give you more links to your squeeze page, and more is almost always better.
But here’s another way you can publish your content to get free traffic…
Method 5: Scribd.com/Slideshare.net
I’ve already told you about article marketing, but most article marketers forget leverage
their article content.
If you’ve gone to the trouble of writing and article (or paying somebody to write it for
you), it makes sense to get as much use out of the content as you can!
There are two easy ways to do it…
The first way is to create a PowerPoint slide presentation out of the main points of your
article and upload it to http://www.slideshare.net:
(If you don’t have PowerPoint, you can also upload presentations from OpenOffice and
Most often, you will want to have several related articles to draw content from when you
create your presentation.
That will help you create a meaty presentation that will provide helpful and interesting
content. Creating a slide presentation from your article content isn’t hard at all. Here’s
how to do it:
• Start with an intriguing title that contains your keyword. If you wrote good
titles for your articles, pick the one you like the best and use that.
• Spend the first few slides describing the problem your free offer solves. A
free report about how to beat a speeding ticket, for example, would talk about the
inconvenience, legal risk and expense of getting a ticket.
• Then tell people how your report will help solve the problem. Use the key
benefits from your squeeze page to talk about the main points of your report.
These can be bullet points in your presentation as well.
• Strive for keyword density of 1-3% in your slides, but don’t be silly about it.
Slides aren’t narrative text like an article, so don’t be silly about having your main
targeted keyword show up. But do your best to include it where it makes sense.
• Finish with a link to your website. This is where your traffic will come from!
This service is free, so there’s no reason not to leverage your content this way.
Another way to leverage your content is to transform your articles into a PDF document
and “publish” it online at http://www.scribd.com:
Google loves this site, and every document there gets indexed by Google frequently.
The service is free, so it’s a great inexpensive way to attract traffic to your squeeze
You can simply upload the slide presentation you created for slideshare.net, but I don’t
recommend doing that.
Here’s a better strategy to get people to visit your site when they read your document:
• Use multiple articles, just like you did for creating your slide presentation,
because that will give you a larger document to public at scribd. Treat your
articles are sections of a report, very similar to how you wrote your free report to
offer from your squeeze page. The result is something you can think of as a long
article or a short report.
• Make your article/report a natural lead-in for your free offer. For example, if
your free offer is a how-to guide for learning to play the guitar, your article/report
could be The Three Most Frustrating Mistakes New Guitar Players Make.
• Strive for 1-3% keyword density in your article/report. This is a perfect place
to include your main targeted keyword, since you’re writing an article/report that
can weave your keyword in naturally. Remember not to “stuff” your keyword (1-
3% usage is fine) and you should be okay.
• Include a promotional pitch at the end of your article/report. This should be
a blatant commercial. The point is to get people to visit your squeeze page and
sign up for your free offer, so entice them. You might say something like this:
If you thought this report was helpful, you’ll want to grab your own
copy of my absolutely free guide, Play Guitar Like A Rock Star. You
can sign up for a complimentary copy at
It’s smart to include a brief summary of your key benefits, without just repeating
the squeeze page. And it’s usually a good idea to include the ecover image you
use on your squeeze page as well.
• Use a free PDF generator to create the final file. You can use the one at
http://www.pdf995.com or the built-in tool in OpenOffice. Then just upload your
file to scribd and you’re all ready to go.
When you leverage your article content like this, you can get traffic from several
different sources without having to do much extra work at all.
You Don’t Have To Use Every Method!
I’ve shared 5 methods for getting traffic to your squeeze page. All of these approaches
work (your results may vary, of course) and they’re currently working for lots of people.
To be honest, though, it’s probably smarter to focus on one method. Master it and
become an expert at getting traffic that way.
Once you have that one under your belt, you can move on to another one. Before you
know it, you’ll have 3-5 core methods you can use to get as much traffic as you want!
Test Your Conversions?
It is very important to test the effectiveness of the squeeze page you are using.
In some cases, just by testing different elements you can easily increase your optins or
profits without doing anything more than changing a few words.
To easily test certain aspects of your squeeze page you can use a free tool from Google
called, “Website Optimizer”.
The idea here is to create two squeeze pages that are almost identical.
Be sure to change something about the second squeeze page to see which page
The website optimizer will evenly rotate the amount of times someone sees each. If
your second page gets more conversions you have found a winner!
It is important to keep improving your squeeze page because ultimately it means more
people will join your subscriber list.
To skip all the testing and learn which conversion tactics really work
in the real world, check out my Optin Profits Program.
I cover dozens of techniques that I use personally to increase my squeeze
page conversions! Why reinvent the wheel, huh?
