I have a question for the all the list builder and email gurus out there. I have build my list (6,500) in a high profitable finance niche over the the last 2 years. Double-opt in of course in return for a valuable free ebook. All good so far. I tried hard to maintain the list well and have provided them with many free valuable advice but also of course other affiliated promotions. Well, this has made me some really good income in 2013.
I have noticed that now the response is getting less. It started in October and it's now what I would call more or less a dull list. Really annoying as this was my main source of income. Yes, I have sent a few promotions more than usual and I got a few comments that they didn't like that and some unsubscribed. Fair enough. You can't please anyone. But that the entire list has lost interest in my emails/posts/promotions ...I find that hard to believe. The clickthrough rate is still high ..not as high as it was but people still DO read my mails but do not take action anymore.
What's going on there ? I have I exhausted my list ? Have I hit them to hard ? How can I get them back ? What do you do in those cases ? Anyone with good ideas?
Would be really appreciated.
