    As anyone knows, it's important to create a relationship with your email list. I've done some research on how to create a good relationship and I have some experience as well. I'd like to continue to improve on my methods. Does anyone have some good suggestions or resources (websites, videos, etc) on how to improve?

    Thanks.

    • Don't send up too much. 1 email after 1-2 weeks seems to be good.
    • The most important thing is that you must add value in having your mailing list. Have mailing list-exclusive discounts. Permit people in mailing lists to have early access to your product. Or whatever you may do.
    • Never sell too much of your partner's product. This may be a great product, but the person receiving the advertisement will know that YOU gain money by advertising some other product, although they only opt-in for your product.
    • Put up interesting discounts. 10-15% discount is great enough for some people.
    • Always have a link for the people to unsubscribe from your mailing lists.
    • Never write content that is different. If they are subscribing for your car-related business mailing list, don't send up contents about babies or about government.
    • Don't send the email out during hectic hour, or office hour. Some people may just skip it and never read it again. I usually send them on Friday night, hoping to catch the reader if they read their email casually on Saturday.
