How To Build A Huge Email Marketing List Fast
Internet marketing allows you to work when you want and from where you want – all on your own terms. Since you’re selling somebody else’s products and services there is no order fulfillment or customer service involved which are commonly the two biggest headaches most business owners deal with .
There are hundreds of different ways to make money online with or without a website. I prefer using the website model myself because I like to create something beautiful and functional from nothing. This business allows you the freedom to choose which markets you promote, the models you use to reach your customers, and the methods you implement to sell to them again and again.
No matter how you choose to set up your own internet-based business there is one thing that you absolutely must incorporate into your marketing portfolio or risk losing the lion’s share of your income. That is email marketing.
Why Email Marketing Is So Powerful
Even though internet marketing has so much going for it, it’s not without faults too. Affiliate sale refunds, which are for the most part out of your control, are an unavoidable element of the business model. In addition to the refund issue, there are many elements of internet marketing that are also out of your control:
- Affiliate offers can disappear suddenly without warning
- If you rely on SEO an algorithm change by the search engines (Google, Bing, or Yahoo) can eliminate your free traffic literally overnight
- Your market or niche can drop out from under you. Remember the real estate bubble and crash?
- If you rely on PPC your rates can go up dramatically in a short amount of time
There are many more but I think you get the picture.
Email marketing to your own private list of fans, customers, and followers will always be 100% under your own control. In fact, your list is the one asset that nobody can take away from you. You own it and its unique to you.
