Nine people stole my products and tried to sell them online. Straight up pirated them from clickbank or wherever they saw them. One housewife who works for me, setup several email broadcasts to more than make up for the money I lost.
I’ve made most of my money in my life from email lists, and continue to do so. Many would think that email marketing is dead, but it most certainly is not. Email open rates have dropped, and it is a bit harder to beat spam filters, but it is still one of the best ways to make money you can find other than getting free inbound calls from hot leads. In fact, there are even more sophisticated ways to market via email.
We now have complex trees of decisions that determine which email a subscriber will get, how often they’ll get email from us, and what topic the email will be about.
Our systems also interface with text message systems that send SMS messages in addition to emails if the subscriber meets certain criteria! Dig deep, email marketing is still a very powerful tool for online marketing.
