    Hello,

    email marketing: the longer your list is, the more you earn money.

      I agree with that part.

      That's never been my experience, with email marketing. In fact, every single time I've done a 6-month-long split-test involving different list-sizes (which I've now done in each of 4 different niches) it's actually been the smaller list that has (by far) produced the most income. There have been reasons for that, of course.

      In my experience, it's "the better targeted and more responsive your list is, the more you earn money".

      It's the difference between a quantitative approach and a qualitative one.

      It's quite an important point, I think, and one which many marketers get wrong (commonly, for example, by using squeeze pages, because those generally build "the biggest lists", even though those bigger lists can produce less income: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post7939758 ).

      .

  • I would say yes, I guess it is email marketing to some extent.

    It could take a long time to finally grow a big list that gets tons of subscribers and readers.

    It's tough and hard, but it definitely is a worthwhile investment of your time.

      99% of all business require hard work - online or offline. That 1% is there, but if you chase after it you are most likely wasting your time. You can also waste your time with the "never give up" attitude. Sometimes the smartest thing you can do is say ****it. Work smart not hard.

    In my opinion, pay per click marketing is the best and fastest way to get good results. It's actually requires the LEAST amount of work.

    You just have to work smart in the beginning to get your ads up and running and once you have that, everything will work for you on complete auto-pilot. (As long as you are getting consistent flow of traffic and sales from this).

    Based purely on my own observations, it's growth-hacking a company to a size and performance that makes it either an acquisition target or IPO candidate. Either one could make you a billionaire.

    Building a well targeted and receptive list for email marketing is probably one of the most time consuming and profitable marketing techniques out there. You need to provide value and build a report with you list so they help spread your word, trust you to point them in the right direction as a true thought leader and ultimately purchase and bring in money.

      The research baby... it's the research.

      All your actions should be based on research. Get that wrong - then you're just gambling and guessing.

      Email marketing fails ... CPA fails ... Affiliate marketing fails ... Mailing list fails ... Business fails.

      Research is the backbone, foundation and insurance policy for all successful marketing that gives you the most results - if you work hard ... and smart at it.
