    I'm wondering this because I just signed up with aweber, and have ideas on how to build my list and what niche to build it around to push my affiliate links through casually. People in the past have said nothing but great things about creating your own list and optimizing it but I'm wondering if this is still up to date

    Thank you

    It's still a very viable way for making an income online. I'm no mail marketer myself but 2 very close friends 'rolled in' to this business and from what they are telling me it's definitely still hot. I know you've probably already read this here, but built a good relationship with your list and you should be fine.

    Yes, if you have time and energy to build relationships with your subscribers.
    Don't expect to make people sign up and then spam them with affiliate links for the rest of their life. You have to provide some value.

    if you time, resources and something interesting to provide your subscribers then yes, you can try it
    If you want fast money, its not your cup of tea. I stopped with email marketing because i am not a patient person :p
    still sometimes i find it a loss of time since you take time and money to setup and if the results aren't good, it will be a waste, if you are wanting to go through it till the end and have at least a small amount of expertise in that domain of field then you are good to go.

    I would definitely jump on it and do this yes, it takes a while to set up but can give you great results in the long run so well worth the try.
