I recently found out about email lists, and how valuable they really are. I have a fairly decent network at the moment, i have about 5k followers on facebook, and about 15k on instragram. I also have about 1900 customers in my MLM organization. Im curious, as to if i could use building a targeted email list to obtain positive results and attention to my MLM organization, or would i be better off keeping them completely separate and going just pure affiliate?
My idea was to direct traffic to an email submission page (not sure exactly what my offer or attraction will be yet), and re-direct to a thank you page, with an affiliate product in the same niche. I'm not quite sure if this is a positive or negative thing, and i would like opinions, or maybe even facts from someone who has been around the block already.
I'm starting completely new at this, i'm a quick learner, but i know the first place to start in any business is advice from people who are already successful. So, i would appreciate any suggestions, recommendations, opinions, or whatever input would be greatly appreciated.
Also, i don't have alot of money to just dump into internetland right now for a rocket fast start up, so im looking for cost friendly alternatives.
Also, opinions on paying a mentor being on a budget and new?
And, opinions on sites like safe swaps? Would they be ideal for my to dip my toes into yet?
