    Well email its not dead and still working but

    Its not like in the past where you would just colect emails ,set some email follow up series with affiliate products and boom you will make money easy

    No now its more about real value ,email its not only about sending promotional emails
    People they get bombarded around years with so many email promoters and they smell imediatly the sales person who just want to make sales without no value and they ignore the emails or unsubscribe

    If you want to have succes with email you need to put some efort to build realationship ,build trust and prove to people that you realy deliver value

    Many people are not so naive on how many people think

    I would like to know more about this as well.

    As of now I am promoting on social media, and building an audience primarily by email.

    I feel like it can't hurt, but there's just too many emails these days. Every time I have to make an account on a site or enter my email anywhere for any reason, I'm immediately inundated with messages, and they all feel the need to send them on a daily basis. It's crazy. I usually end up not opening any of them, but once in awhile I'll take a look if it sounds interesting.

    One thing to consider, is that the market rate for email marketing software is a healthy amount. Gives us a good idea that it works well.

    My last mini launch, without affiliates and ONLY using email, made a $35K profit to a list of 300 people. So, it's not dead for me.

    It's never been dead. Nor dying.

    But it will help if you make your emails stand out.

    No, it's not alive and well. I tracked it down back in August, put a bullet through its head.


    Why such a question? Did you hear that nobody's using email anymore? Because that's when it will be dead.


    Systems for identifying spam have improved, so email spamming is not doing as well as it used to. But a proper email marketing campaing will work just as well as it used to.


    Except now there are more platforms where you can present your freebie.

    Email is still ALIVE.

    Most marketers will say that it is dead and the reason is this:

    Most marketers who are in an online home business buy their traffic from solo ad vendors.

    When everyone is sending traffic they buy to an opt in page from the same solo ad vendors, these "leads" are on 10-20-30 lists and these leads get hammered left and right from different marketers.

    When this happens, your leads are hammered with offers and they just don't buy. Most don't even open you emails.

    Email Marketing is still useful only if you have warm email list.

    I believe the short answer is no. Email will most likely be around in its common form for quite some time. I believe what will change is how we receive and organize it.
