From The Desk of Isaiah Jackson
Indiana, United States
If you are sick and tired of struggling to build your email list (you know something that everyone is telling you to do) with little to no results then read on because by the end of this letter you will have what it takes to build your email list.
Here's the story...
My name is Isaiah Jackson and over the last 6 years alone, I've built several email lists in various different niches from personal development, health and fitness, hip hop, and internet marketing. I've also made a nice little sum of money from those email lists - when everyone said it wasn't possible.
But, you know what?
Just last year...
I was so broke that I couldn't even afford to put gas in my now junked car
Because I couldn't get a high quality subscriber to save my life.
Here's what I mean.
I've spent hundreds (now close to thousands) of dollars on various marketing trainings, masterminds, memberships, info products about marketing, copywriting, list building.
But, I couldn't get a single subscriber to buy what I was offering no matter what sales trick or tactic I was using.
And the ones that did buy something and became customers would ask for a refund, wanted silly discounts, or were flat out impossible to work with.
It was humiliating...
I Couldn't Get A High Quality Subscriber On My List Even If I Paid Them To Be On It
I started doing what these "gooroos" teach newbies when it comes to building a responsive email list of subscribers. You know the whole slap together a copy & paste squeeze page, send them straight to an offer and send them follow up emails 3 times a week.
I did exactly that.
Made a bunch of money right away.
I thought great I'm on to something.
Built up a list of about 4,000 email subscribers... things were looking up except there weren't.
Those 4,000 email subscribers made me a grand total of only $140 per month.
That is not a typo - I didn't miss adding two zeros to that number.
That is exactly how much moolah I was earning with a list of 4,000 subscribers.
I Ended Up Paying More To Build The Email List Than What I Actually Made With It
It felt like I was cursed.
Here I was doing exactly what these "gooroos" were telling me to do - and I can barely make enough money to pay my rent every single month.
I was frustrated and din't know what to do.
I felt like a complete failure. I had almost no money left and had to take on a handful of side jobs just to make ends meet.
Then, out of the blue, something happened that changed everything.
I was listening to a podcast where the host talked about what to do if you had a dead list. He said:
"If you have a dead list the best thing you can do is scrap the whole thing and start over again"
I thought something was wrong with my headphones so I went back 15 seconds to play it again and yep he said to delete the whole list and start all over again.
So that is exactly what I did.
July 1, 2017.
I deleted over 4,000 email subscribers from my email list - only kept the most active subscribers on my list - which came out to be a grand total of 110 subscribers.
Now with a somewhat fresh list I set out on my journey of rebuilding my email list, using what I knew didn't work, what did work, how to make money from the new subscribers plus much much more.
So, I decided to run a little test. (I had nothing to lose so I thought, why not?)
I went back to using ancient list building strategies that most would say wouldn't work anymore.
They were much slower than the methods the "gooroos" taught.
But much more effective.
Well here is what happened:
I Got 188 New Subscribers On My Email List & Earned $1,448 In The Process
