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?
