Make Money With Your Email List

Have you ever wondered how so many people get rich selling products on the internet? Success with an internet marketing online business starts with building an Email list.

Make Money Online by Building an Email List is part three in my series of  4 Steps to Making Passive Income. From previous posts you learned, “Internet marketing riches are in the niches” and “What You Need to Know Before You Build Your Website.”  Learning the secrets to building an email list leads to internet riches.

Building an email list is one of the least expensive ways to drive traffic to your website sales pages. One of the first things you should have your web site designer do is add email contact forms on your site so you can build a subscriber list and make money from your product promotions.

Where to add email contact forms…

The best places to add email contact forms are:

  • On the top of each page
  • On the top right-hand sidebar
  • At the bottom of each page and post
  • At the top, middle and bottom of your sites “About” and/or “Start Here” pages

Sending a weekly email allows you to communicate directly to your audience of followers. By sending frequent email messages you stay top of mind and you get to delight your audience by sending them valuable “Free Offers” like your latest Free Report or PDF White Paper on a topic of interest.

Of course along with the free offer, you can market the products of affiliate offers that you review and recommend.

4 Reasons Why You Must Build an Email List to Make Money Online

-1- Having an email list of subscribers to your monthly eZine or Newsletter allows you to influence the traffic that comes to your website. Every time you add a new post or review a product or create a new product, you simply send an email to your subscribers and get free traffic to your site.

-2- If you have a mailing list of 5,000 or 10,000 subscribers, you get traffic to come to your website for zilch, nada, zip! Now that’s leverage.

-3- By having an email list you can make money on demand.  Think about this.  Let’s say you write a new ebook.  You market your ebook on Clickbank and Amazon and at the same time you send an announcement of your new ebook to the raving fans on your email list. When you track the results of your marketing campaigns you will often find that you get a 3-4 times better response with your warm list of email contacts than you get with Amazon.

Plus, when you update your ebook, you send out a notice and guess what?  You make another $1,000 to $2,000 from fans who repurchase or fans who didn’t purchase the first go around but now are ready to buy.  Either way you’re ahead because it doesn’t cost you anything but an hour of your time.

-4- On average, you should make $1.00 for every subscriber per month.  This means $1,000 a month for 1,000 subscribers and $3,000 a month from 3,000 subscribers.  Bottom line, you can give your self a raise in pay every month.  How?  It’s simple.  Build more email subscribers.

Drive Traffic to Opt-in Pages

Building an email list is easy.  All you do is drive traffic to your opt-in page and send people from your opt-in page to whatever free product you are featuring. You can create an opt-in page yourself with free plugins like Magic Action Box or sign up for a professional auto-responder service like Awebber or Get Response.

Take a look at the bottom of this post and you’ll see an opt-in box that I created with Magic Action Box.

Personally, I use Get Response on my websites.  I think the pricing is reasonable, the templates are easy to customize and Get Response has a good support team. You can send professional newsletters and email marketing messages to up to 2,500 subscribers for as little as $25 a month.

Free Offers

One of my millionaire internet marketing mentors built his email list to over 10,000 subscribers in 30 days by giving away a free eBook.  And guess what?  He didn’t even write the book.  He gave away a free eBook from the public domain.

Here’s the scoop on free offers.  People love to get stuff for free.  But, make sure what you offer for free is something that creates value for them.  Give away a free report, a free PDF eBook, a white paper, a free monthly eZine or newsletter, a free series of instructional videos, a free interview with an expert and so on in exchange for the name and email address of your fan club.

After giving your audience a few quality free items you will have gained their trust and earned the right to market products that you sell.

In posts to follow I’ll show you how to drive traffic to your website.
