Hi guys,

I have a list of a few thousand where I send mostly website updates and news to. I have 4 auto emails that give basic information to the list over the first month and then I promote a few products randomly throughout the year and make a little money.

I'm looking at monetizing my list now and I can across one popular Internet Marketer's list theory where he says: once they sign up, for the first 5 days send them 5 consecutive emails and then an offer for a product. The 5 emails may sound like alot but it will keep the cheapskates off your list. Then send about 1 email per month.

Do you think this is a good idea? Or do you think don't even try it.

I know I always unsubscribe when I get frequent emails that fill my box, 5 in the first 5 days seems wayyy overwhelming to me..

What do you think?

Thanks guys!

JT

    Hi JT,

    There are so many people they will tell you to provide value to your list


    But let me be honest ,Just providing value will not make you a single dime
    What you can do is provide them with quality products(Recommend them)
    The products which you have actually bought and tried yourself ,Just do not
    Promote products which you have not tried .
    Monetizing is the key ,you just cannot send emails about your website updates
    until you are a very good content marketer

    Just promote and promote products which have helped you in your online business
    this way you are providing value as well as making money

    Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions related to list building

    I agree with the marketer's theory. If someone is going to unsubscribe from your list after 5 days of emails containing free value, then you probably don't want them on your email list anyway.

    hey jt47000

    As i mentioned on your other post bro its been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt you'll be more 'successful' with email marketing campaigns if you email consistently.

    Minimum 3 days a week i say at least 5 preferably 7.

    I know you say 5 in 5 days is overwhelming so i wonder if you're fishing more for an answer to NOT do email marketing?

    Like you're worried about doing it or something? I was too bro. But, when i increased & got consistent with my efforts i'm regularly getting between 25-37.5% open rates, 0 complaints, 0 unsub.

    Really there are no rules. However, I would agree to mail more often than less.

    All you really have to do is watch your mailing stats and your conversions and find what medium works best for you bank account. For all you know, you could get away with sending 2 messages per day, 6 days per week. When testing, a one day change doesn't create any statistical significance. So you really need to keep at it, even when things start looking negative to know for sure.

    The other thing to think about, very important, it's very easy for your subscribers to forget who you are, if you don't email enough. They are probably getting emails from many other marketers, and probably more often, why would they remember you if you don't stay in touch with them?

    You mail only once a month, there is a good chance they might not remember you and they might even click the spam button.

    Think we can all agree, we've actually signed up for a list, but later forgot because we did not hear from the list owner very often.
