    I read a short story about a guy who made a lot of money from Affiliate marketing, and it said the only thing he did to make all of this money is affiliate marketing, but through email lists.

    Now I was wondering, is affiliate marketing through email lists that good?

    I would think yes, if you entice the customer with something free and then direct them to your landing page. You can buy targeted email lists too.

    Anyways, just wondering if anybody has tried this out before, and if so how well did it work.

    Thanks.

    Some people swear by it. For my part, I just try to drive traffic then keep the affiliate links on the screen and let the visitor decide if he wants to shop.

    I do marketing through my e-mail list. On one of my niche sites I do a lot. I don't send them an affiliate offer I send them to a page where I've done a review of mu niche products with affiliate links on it.

    Email marketing may work for some niche markets but it is my experience that the conversion rate can be low if you are not reaching the right people. Additionally, finding the distribution channel(s) that will drive enough traffic and earn you "real money", i.e. over 1M annually is like finding a needle in a stack of needles.
