        [ What then will the the simplest and most effective email marketing system something which could easily be used by a newbie? ]

        Most popular email marketing services (GetResponse, Aweber, MailChimp, etc.) are actually quite newbie-friendly and very reliable. I recommend one of these.

        The cheaper ones out there are the ones that are not as user-friendly (you know, generic offerings, un-intuitive interfaces, weak technical support, etc.). They make up for this by offering the customers a higher ceiling for the number of subscriber per plan. There is a trade off here, so it's up to the customer's preference.

    Hello..Email marketing is right now the most important channel of marketing products or services for 2 main benefits:
    By having squeeze pages you can easily get hold of opt-in email ids of subscribers which is like winning a lottery as they are all definitely interested in your product.

    2)Scale of advertising
    Emails are more professional and reliable compared to SMS or other means of advertising due to the detailed information you can furnish therein along with links to all that you want your potential clients to know,see and feel about your product or service.

    1) Pay Once – Market Forever:
    Unlike many other forms of advertising and marketing, this approach is very cool in that you only have to pay for a lead once, to get the opportunity to market to them repeatedly for free. Whatever the cost (time or money) it took to get them onto your list, you will be paid back tenfold over the course of your relationship with these people.

    Full step by step email marketing guide

    2) Works in Any Niche:
    We can promote and make money within any niche, but the beauty of email marketing is that y
    ou can cross promote relevant products continuously because you have an ongoing communication with your prospects. If you have a prospect on your list that is interested in weight loss, you can also promote gym equipment, physical products like the “George foreman” grill, and any other products remotely related to weight loss and general health.

    3) It Can Be Completely Automated:
    Once you have leads (prospects) coming into your system, you can set up a funnel that sells your products on autopilot. With the technology we have at our fingertips today like autoresponders, we can set up an email campaign to go out to our list automatically. All you have to do is set it, and forget it. Now and then you can send a broadcast message to your list about any immediate updates you feel they should know about.

    Email Marketing is the best platform to reach your targeted audience and convey your message which will definitely help to increase the conversions. Currently, eCommerce industry is taking advantages of such platforms for sending abandonment cart reminder, product replenishment emails, referral emails, lead nurturing and more.

    I agree on everything that is said in the comments.

    But the most important power of email marketing for me is the SEGMENTATION.

    What people generally do is to promote the same offer over and over again. Let's say 5-10% of your prospects were interested and bought the product.

    Another percentage may be interested in another topic or product.

    One prospect would be interested in List building for example, and the other is creating an online product. You can identify the interest of the prospect and create offers just based on his interest.

    This is powerful.

    Email Marketing helps develop trust between you and your subscribers. Think about your favorite restaurant. The one you go to all the time. In the beginning, you've never heard of it, but after giving it a try one time and trying the food there, you end up liking it - and then you go back for more. Eventually, over time, you buy more and more. Email marketing is like that - everyone wins.

    It's one of the best ways to make money because you can use it to automate and leverage your business while staying in touch with your customers over and over again with very little cost.

    I would focus on the basics to be able to create the income you want with email marketing.

    Basics include:
    • Puting the right offer in front of the right people.
    • Creating an automated system for capturing and closing leads.
    • Lead generation strategies so that you grow your email list with buyers which you persuasively communicate with over and over again via email.

    People tend to be familiar with the ones they have communicated with before. Email marketing serves as the tool linking the sender and receiver of the mails to connect each other.

    Actually, email marketing also acts as the way creating the rapport between these two parties. That eventually leads to the trust and indirectly impact the potential prospect deciding to buy the products/service offered later.

    So, this is how email marketing is still the main element for business purpose.

    It serves as a relationship and trust builder. Once you master the art, only sky is the limit!

    - It's simple and it's straightforward. Anybody can do it at whatever time.

    - It permits you to take out the expense for outline, testing, executing, and sending printed pamphlets.

    - A client can track client by means of investigation, skip messages, un-supporters, click-throughs, and so forth.

    - Direct mail is moderate. It can take anywhere in the range of 7 to 10 days to get a reaction. Email Marketing however has a reaction in anyplace somewhere around 1 and 3 days, or prompt when you're taking a gander at online deals.

    - You can focus on a particular group of onlookers in view of topography, age, wage, or whatever suits your requirements.

    Let's say you've got 5,000 people on your list.

    How long would it take to speak with all these people on the phone?

    Weeks. (And that's presuming you get hold of them all.)

    Now compare that to how long it would take to "speak" with the same 5,000 people by email. You can do it in 20 minutes by writing your email and pressing "send".

    Plus, people get to open your emails when they're ready and in the "right" mood. The odds of catching someone in this same mood when giving them a phone call are very, very slim

    That's why email marketing is so damn amazing.

    Benefits are endless but WHAT are the cons of not having a list?

    70% of the users abandons the site in the first minutes without buying anything: so if you dont grab their mails, you are wasting money and time.

    If you dont have a list you cannot have an ASSET: what is an asset? is something you can rely on wich produces a stream of income. With a list you can have pretty reliable statistics of how much you sell with a promotional mail, depending on the size of the list and how u nurture the leads.

    If you dont have a list you cannot monetize with Solo Ads: even if not anyone are fan of solo ads, im a fan of it. The lists can be monetize without selling anything, it has an intrisic value, the more clicks of your subscriber you can deliver, the more you can earn, using portal like udimi or clickonomy, or fb's group of solo ads sellers.

    It's AUTOMATED: you can set as much longer as u want of pre-written emails' sequence, so you can have sales etc, without trading time for money.

    A few benefits of email marketing.

    Email is a cheap high ROI marketing channel. ( Email marketing has a 3800% ROI. For every $1 spent, email marketing generates $38 in ROI)

    Email is a direct channel to your customer that enables you to build strong relationships by sharing informative content. Informative content is sharable content which raises your authority and visibility. (Email subscribers are 3 times more likely to share your content via social media than visitors from other sources.)

    Speak directly to your audience with email personalization (Personalization increases click-through rates by an average of 14% and conversions by 10%)

    Segment your lists to deliver highly targeted messages, improving engagement and conversions. (Segmentation increased open rates by almost 19%, and click-through rates by almost 22%.)

    Email campaigns are easily trackable using such metrics as bounces, unsubscribes, clicks, opens etc.

        There is anti-spam legislation in most of the developed world these days. To get around this you simply create an offer such as a free e-book for anyone who signs up on your email list. It is ok for you to email the person with any marketing etc because the person is an opt-in, they have opted to receive the information. It is essentially free marketing, and for a long period of time, as people tend not to change their emails very often.

  • Who ever told you that just picked a random number.

    Industry standard is said that a responsive list has subscribers that yield $1-$4 per month per subscriber.

    That is totally just a guess as well.

    You can't actually guess beforehand what kind of money your list will make even if you have been marketing to them for 3 months.

    You have a month average and a 3 month average and you can split all that down as much as you want but it doesn't tell you what kind of profit you will make the next day off of them.

    Someone could buy a big ticket item worth $5000 from you when your best month beforehand for every subscriber was $2000 for the whole month.

    Concentrate on adding buyers and responsive subscribers to your list and before you start trying to get thousands upon thousands of subscribers learn how to email market or else it's just a waste of a list.

    You need to have them engaged as much as possible from the beginning to each subscriber as profitable as possible. If they haven't opened a email from you in a month then you can bet the next one you send out they wont open either.

    Email marketing solves all the inherent issues of non-targeted marketing. Gone are the days of placing an advertisement on television, on a diner placemat, or in a periodical with no control of who will see it. With email marketing, you have the capability to control exactly who sees an email by segmenting your contacts based on their lead status, demographics, location or any other data.

    Email marketing certainly has a lot of advantages.

    For me, the primary advantage is that you reach more customers and you get to build a relationship with them.

    Other benefits are:
    You can track sales and conversion
    Target a certain market
    Personalize messages
    Control frequency and time of messages
