    As the title says, what would be the best way to monetize such a email list. Any tips would be appreciated!

    I think such a email list would be a great head start in terms of marketing and exposure. Do you think so?

    Should I do blogging, content based website with affiliate marketing or something? Or maybe I should go for dropshipping store website instead? Or why don't do both? Or maybe there is some other way?

    Let's make it a journey. Maybe we all can learn something new from this journey...

    Thanks!

    1. Rent Out Your Real Estate
    Your online real estate is any web property that you own and control
    You can display third-party ads on your site
    Attract site sponsors. Technically, sponsors give you money to support the running of your business (in exchange for a nice shiny banner pointing back to their site).
    Send your audience to related content on other sites. The idea is simple: display other people’s content on your site and get paid for clicks. Think of it like hosting ads, but instead of promoting products you promote other articles.

    Bottom line? Renting out your real estate is attractive because it’s “easy money” – no awkward customers to deal with, no products to develop, no worries about tight margins.
    On the flip side, income is rarely as large as publishers hope or expect And it’s easy to make your site look tacky if you overdo it.

    2. Promote Other People’s Products
    There are two essential differences between this monetization method and the last…
    1. With ads, you’re paid “per click” (or sometimes “per thousand impressions”).
    When you promote products as an affiliate, you normally receive a percentage of any sale (meaning if there’s no sale, you’re not compensated).
    2. Affiliate recommendations are precisely that: recommendations. With ads, you’re not endorsing the products, merely placing them in front of
    your audience’s eyes. Because you put your reputation on the line with affiliate products, it’s crucial that you’re familiar with the products (and actually do recommend them!).

    Bottom line on being an affiliate? The more you put into it, the more you get out of it…
    If you slap affiliate banners all over your site and expect to get rich, you’ll be disappointed (and you’ll make your site look spammy!) If you write engaging content and only recommend products from quality partners in appropriate places, you’ll do much better.

    Depending on your niche and target audience, I have some great infoproducts for you where you can earn a 90% commission.
    Shoot me PM and let's see if I could be a good fit for your list ;)


    3. Sell Your Skills
    Why not sell your services?
    How much you’re worth depends on what you do, the “going rate” for that skill and, crucially, how talented you are relative to the competition.

    If selling your services is your sole monetization strategy, your blog or website will be your calling card. Yes, it should offer value in its own right (with thought-leading blog posts, for example). But the underlying message should come across loud and clear…
    HIRE ME… I’M GOOD!
    Another option is to sell your services as part of a diversified monetization portfolio. For example if you sell high-end information products, you could offer one-to-one consulting to customers with the deepest pockets.
    Or you could add value to an online course by making yourself available to the community for the duration of the course.

    To you success !

    How did you acquire these subscribers? What type of relationship do you have with those subscribers? How do you interact with them? All of these variables determine how you will be able to sell to them.

    I'll send u a PM regarding the info products.

    Nice tips. Thank you!


    It's not a scraped one and I don't see a reason why I wouldn't be here.


    It's collected from a couple of different websites.

    So, we have different niches presented here obviously. Which is why I would like to create something universal/general, something that fits the majority of people.

    It doesn't matter if u are subscribed to a car tires dealer's website or food recipes blog. You will still want to buy a screen protector for your mobile phone or read the latest news. You get the point.


    It's diversified.
