    Little History
    Before one year i searched for methods and read them but never took any action. before some months i worked on some methods to make money but with no success. I keeped on shifting from method to method resulting to only waste of time. I am reading posts here on bhw for a year now, but registered myself just a few days ago.

    But now i have decided to start email marketing and concentrate on it ( i got inspiration from the bhw members and their posts). I have started this journey so that i could get help or suggestion from others if i get stuck somewhere and also to keep a record of what am i doing. I will update this thread regularly till success or failure. wish me luck.

    I am starting with zero money so i will use only sites providing free services.

    Here is what i have:

    1. my tablet, connected with keyboard and a mouse.
    2. 3GB 2g internet data pack.


    Day #1

    1. registered on clickbank and choosed products to promote.
    2. got a free domain
    3. got a free autoresponder account (they add ads in my outgoing emails)
    4. downloaded some free squeeze pages by searching on google.
    5. got a free hosting.

    Goal: Recive my first Cheque from Clickbank.

    Should you buy a paid hosting and domain.

    Because the free services do not have good support.

    The bitter truth is I belongs to a poor middle class family. so I don't have any money to invest.

    After earning some amount, I will surely invest for paid services. Till then i have to continue with free services.

    Good luck on your journey buddy, but from experience; Free hosting sucks and if you are talking about a .tk domain kind of thing, you really need to hassle a few bucks to start. I know that at times it is hard but try your best here.. and surely you will get good results in the end.

    Hi DarkHorse361,

    If you dont have funds then you can only try some free signups such as mandrill but if you want to send lots of emails then you must invest

    Marry Xmas

    What's your plan on getting subscribers? Can't really give you any suggestions without knowing which niche you're aiming for.

    Your niche is quite competitive. One option is to setup a bing campaign to drive traffic to your sqeeze page. Get a free bing coupon or buy it from fiverr.
    However trading niche has expensive keywords you'll be bidding on. Anyway, looking forward to see your progress.

    If you want to test a small sample size before you put any money or time into this I would highly suggest you signup to MailChimp and utilize their 3,000 free subscriber option with about 10,000+ monthly emails.

    For the landing page just use Instapage's free option and design a killer page with their drag and drop tools. Then simply link your MailChimp API key and everything will transfer over.

    You get about 100 visitors a month once you publish it and can link a dot.tk domain to their name servers.

    MailChimp and Instapage's are the best free solutions to get started with this as you can constantly try and split test your campaign until you reach your desired goal.

    There is no ad below each email with MailChimp and you can always upgrade your account later. Same thing with Instapage.

    That would be enough for you to test the waters before you put any money into this. Make sure you create a proven campaign before you upgrade.

    About 15% of the visitors that hit my page end up opting in. That's from social media traffic in a completely different niche so if you go another route you probably would get them to convert much better, especially with paid traffic.

    I started when I was 14, but had a lot of problems going on in my life so I didn't really make a profit until May of this year.

    This business has a steep learning curve so never give up and always adapt. Otherwise you will fail like 95% of everyone on this forum.

    You did Good picking email marketing as your first attempt. I have about 3 methods I broke down and optimized to the point where I only work about an hour a day and make more than you would at McDonalds within 2 months.

    It starts to multiply like crazy once you understand how this all works. It's all passive if you use the brain you were given.

    Rest assured, good luck my friend.

    You have a long road ahead of you, remember to take my words seriously and you shouldn't have any problem succeeding.

    If you're looking to seriously start an online business, you really need to have good hosting.

    Building links can be done by hand, it just takes a tediously, demanding long time and most people run out of the passion before they run into dollars. Even some Fiverr gigs would be okay if you're starting out. Most are junk but a few are pretty good at basic link building.

    Can you deliver pizzas on the weekend for extra money? Around here those guys pull in like $200 for a Friday/Saturday night; enough to get ya started nicely. :)

    Thanks for your interest. I will search for bing coupons but i guess it needs some minimum amount to be deposited first.
