How to Build an Email List Fast with Quizzes

How to Build an Email List Fast Using Personality Quizzes

I’ve discovered how to build an email list fast using personality quizzes and in this article, I’ll show you exactly what I did to get the 10+  highly targeted lead a day on a very small ads budget.

Since day one…a main business goal of mine has been to build my list to that I can expand my impact and help more people through my content, services and training.

I’ve made it a point to improve my list building skills over the years by studying with some of the biggest names in the business, Amy Porterfield, Fabienne Frederickson, Derek Halpern and Sandi Krakowski to name a few.

I’ve done everything from building a main opt-in, creating content upgrades, pop-ups landing pages etc…you name it, I’ve tested it out.  And, as the head of an implementation team, I’ve worked with 100’s of clients building websites, marketing funnels, social media presence since 2009.

Yes…. you can say I’ve got a lot of list building experience under my belt….some good and some really big failures.

Things that have worked okay for list building are telesummits, webinars and of course website traffic to blogs with content upgrades.

However, I was still looking for the ONE thing that would help me build my list consistently day in and day out.

Then one day I listened to a podcast where Rick Mulready interview Chanti Zak about how she uses quizzes plus Facebook Ads to generate quality leads.

I was fascinated having just finished Rick’s Facebook Ads training to hear the results she got.  I figured…what do I have to lose by testing something new out? I got the step-by-step process and started planning my own quiz.

Once I got clear on where I wanted to take my leads…into my paid Smart Simple Blogging Program the implementation of my quiz really began to move forward.

Within a couple of weeks, I had created my quiz and my landing page.  Then it took me about another couple of weeks to get my custom thank you pages set up with a download.

So all in all about 3 weeks probably about 20+ hours were invested of my time to get the setup done.  However, if I had used my team I could have cut my timeline by 50%

What I did to get my quiz up and running…

I used a combination of Interact Quizzes, Leadpages and Aweber to set up my landing pages, thank you pages and nurture sequences.  It was really easy to make them all work together and I am a big fan of both Interact and Leadpages because it was so simple and easy to manage the setup.
