3 Mailing List Tips That Don’t Work

Mailing List Tips That Can Hurt You

As they say, “the money is in the list.”  If you have a mailing list, you can increase your affiliate marketing earnings.  It’s a bit of trouble to maintain a mailing list, and there’s a lot to know.  You’ll need to find an autoresponder system and learn how to use it.  You’ll have to learn to write email messages and you’ll have to learn how to properly format them to work with your chosen autoresponder.  There’s a lot to know, but there’s also no shortage of information on the Web about how to properly use an autoresponder and a mailing list.

mailing listThe problem is that some of these mailing list tips that are frequently posted here and there aren’t actually helpful, and in some cases, they can even hurt you.  While the ultimate goal of a mailing list is to help you convey whatever messages you choose to the people on your mailing list, making sure that they receive the messages and that the messages have value to them should be paramount.  Sometimes, the mailing list tips offered by so-called “gurus” or “experts” are helpful, but at other times, they’re misleading or counterproductive.  Read on and I’ll explain.

mailing listIn the course of writing a blog about making money online, there are a number of topics that are going to come up again and again, because they’re important to every Internet marketer.  One of those topics is the mailing list.  It’s been repeated endlessly that “the money is in the list” and to a certain extent, it’s true.  You can have the greatest sales page in the world, but even so, in order to make a sale, you must persuade the visitor to your site to make a purchase right now.  With a mailing list, you’ll have additional opportunities to persuade those who subscribe to make a purchase, as well as additional opportunities to make sales of related products down the road.

That’s all good and well, but there are a lot of people who don’t bother to create a mailing list.  There’s one blogger I admire who’s had a site for more than a year now who still hasn’t bothered to put together a mailing list.  There are many reasons why people don’t put together a mailing list, but one of them is that it’s generally perceived to be a huge hassle.  Another is that there is an expense involved, though it can actually cost a lot less to build a mailing list than you might realize.  It’s also not nearly as time consuming as you might think, and if you read on, you’ll learn how it’s possible to build a working mailing list that’s ready to attract leads in as little as 30 minutes.

Mailing List Tips – Testing and Timing

If there’s one phrase you’re going to hear a lot in the world of Internet marketing, it’s the phrase “the money is in the list.”  That means that if you’re running an affiliate marketing Website, you should be building a mailing list.  You can share information and tips with your subscribers, and of course, send them occasional offers when you think you’ve found a product that might be helpful to them.  While it’s certainly possible to make money without a list, having one helps, and some marketers have lists with more than 100,000 people on them.  When they mail to those lists, they get results, and they’re likely making good money, too.

Mailing Lists And How to Use Them Wisely

Mailing Lists Are a Great Tool

I’ve written previously about the importance of mailing lists if you’re going to work online from home.  While there are many useful tools that can help you make money online, mailing lists can help you keep in touch with the visitors to your Website and help you make money.  While mailing lists are useful tools, a lot of affiliate marketers tend to misuse them, and that can result in a dead list that doesn’t do anything but cost you money.

mailing lists There’s an old saying in Internet marketing – “The money is in the list.”  What that means is that there are a lot of ways to make money online, but if you build good mailing lists and keep in touch with your list members in meaningful ways, you’ll find that your mailing lists will consist of loyal, dedicated buyers who will provide you with income as well as valuable feedback.  By traditional estimates, properly maintained mailing lists can often generate $1 or more per subscriber, per month.  That’s how some of the Internet marketing gurus manage to earn large sums of money – by building and maintaining mailing lists of tens of thousands of members, they can potentially earn thousands of dollars just by sending out an email message or to.
