6. It Is Cost Effective
How much does it cost to send an email? You will have the monthly cost of the autoresponder that you use to send email messages and to store your contact information.
A good quality autoresponder comes add free at around $20 a month. Depending on the size of your list there is really no other costs associated with email marketing. Other autoresponders, the list does not matter, and you can even earn an income and get your membership paid for, that in itself is another article that you can go and find that out, here on this website.
With other autoresponders, as your list grows, you may be charged a certain percentage per subscriber, but this generally doesn’t start until you have at least 10,000 subscribers on your list. Many affiliate marketers never get a list that big, and if they do they are often in multiple niches so the cost is minimal. And the money that they will be generating, the cost would not be an issue.
7. Easy Way To Make Money
Building an email list takes time and effort, and maybe even some money to promote your offers. However, once you have even a small list, doing email marketing is an easy way to make money, apart from social media and others that you will learn here.
Affiliate marketers can send email messages with a link to a product they promote right in the body of the email itself. Another strategy is to put a snippet of a blog post you made, with the link leading back to the full blog post.
This is a way to drive traffic to a specific offer you want to make sales on. It’s also a great way to get people coming to your blog and generate repeated traffic.
One other important thing to keep in mind is, once you have a list going, it’s an asset nobody can ever take away from you. This means you can monetize it over and over in the future, or even sell the list for profit if you decide you want to get out of that niche.
