Many online internet marketers tell us "its all in the list"
and many people lap up stories of guru's emailing thousands
in their online list and making a huge profit in the
process. Actually you too can start your own email list and
make money from it as well. This article will highlight six
tips on how you can make more money from your own email
1.Have a paragraph to disclose something personal so as to
create trust between yourself and your newsletter reader
Most people fail to realize that the reader of a newsletter
is very much a person like you and me and they have emotions
and feelings and are not reading your newsletter purely for
the topic at hand but they need to trust you before they can
purchase stuff you recommend. A good way to create trust in
your newsletters is to add a personal touch to your emails
with some personal revelation that can connect you with your
readers. The greater your readers trust you, the more likely
they will purchase the stuff that you recommend thus earning
you a commission in the process.
2.Spend time keeping up with your area of interest To be
able to capture and keep your newsletter audience, it is
important that you remain on top of your area of interest.
Spending some time daily keeping up to date with your area
of interest by reading online news websites and online
magazines is a good way to keep up to date. When your tips
are current and effective, your readers will thank you and
this increases the chances of them telling their friends
about your newsletter.
You might want to write some good articles on trends and
developments in your area as well and publish them in
article directories and then refer to your own articles in
your newsletter so as to establish your credibility and
authority in your area of interest. The greater influence
that you hold over your newsletter readers would mean
greater profits for you when you should choose to email them
a special offer.
3.Answer your newsletter subscribers Many newsletter
publishers are very happy when their newsletter subscribers
actually take the time to email them and ask them questions.
This helps create trust and you can always grab a free
testimonial for your newsletter after you have successfully
helped your newsletter reader.
On the other hand, ignoring your subscribers questions is
detrimental as you could see and increase in newsletter
subscription opt out. So the simple solution is to take the
time replying to emails and questions posed to you.
4.Ensure your email newsletter gets delivered
Today with the proliferation of spam filters there are many
emails that are not getting through to their intended
readers. There are a couple of solutions to this problem:
One of them involves putting your newsletter on your website
and emailing your readers with just your link to your
website to reduce your chances of your email getting caught
by the span filters.
Another method involves ditching the whole idea of email and
using direct to desktop readers. Your subscriber downloads a
desktop reader and when your newsletter is ready for
collection, your desktop readers will then inform you.
With a greater delivery rate, you can see your profits
5.Use attention grabbing headers
The really advanced affiliate marketers test everything and
one of the things they do involves testing their headlines.
The use of attention emotion stirring words tend to increase
the chances of your newsletter reader opening your email. An
example would be in order here. "Secrets of wealth

Your header therefore should invoke curiosity in the reader
so that they open up your newsletter email and click to view
it. Obviously the more eyeballs you have reading your email
the higher your profits are going to be.
6.Choose applicable affiliate programs
One simple way to make money from your email list is to
recommend affiliate products that fit in with the theme of
your list. So if your list deals with children education for
instance, you could recommend children education toys to
your list as a possible choice for a Christmas present.
Always choose products that you have personally seen and
consider good. Treat your email list like gold and your
readers will be very loyal and thank you for the
In conclusion, making money with an email list is not that
difficult but it takes effort and each step you take today
will pay off richly in the future. By treating your
newsletter readers as your friends, they will be able to
trust you and your recommendations and help you earn
commissions when they do purchase what you tell them. The
world of online internet marketing is ever expanding and you
can make some money with your email list today if you make
the effort to try.
