    In the past, email marketing was using to send affiliate, sale or other links to make money from visitors coming from unsolicited emails. Today, these kinds of emails are filtered by mail server and go to spam folder. Thus, this cannot be used for an effective way to attract attention.

    How to use email marketing for attracting visitors?

    Obviously, the main factor is the tempting content of email and matching with the receipt; but any info, guide, or hint that how email marketing has been evolved for getting web visitors?

    Yesterday I tried just sending a generic weight loss product affiliate link to 500 emails scraped from google, 8 clicks and one sale later I'm $31 richer. While I'm proud to have that sale I feel it was kind of lucky too, so I am also interested in attracting more visitors :)

    It is not bad, but does it happen regularly? Doesn't they block your email or IP for sending spam emails?

    See what I recommend when you are doing Email Marketing always filter your lists, never rely on unsolicited emails for long time. There are ways certainly to make a subscriber base, may be take some time, effort and some money as well but in the end the most suitable choice for email marketers. Then when you move from 500 to 5000 then 100k you must be in need of a proper email infrastructure which no one obviously want to ruin by sending on an unhygienic list.

    What the issue you have is, you are scraping emails, sending them to random people. Then they get dropped into the spam folder. You need to get them to Opt-in on a squeeze page, then because they confirmed a subscription with you, you won't get flagged for spam, and you know they will be reading the emails. Also they will be targeted. So you will have a lot more sales.

    Your email list should be targeted. You can make the highlight of your product ot service included in the mail content or you can give something incentives for your clients. Hope it can help you.
