Is it feasable to ONLY do email marketing and nothing else?

    obviously its best not to rely on one thing and diversify, but seems to me email marketing is one of the few ways to make money that will always be reliable and never go anywhere. as they say, "the money is in the list". so as long as you keep building your list, are you good? can you only do email marketing for the rest of your IM career and be good?

    You could make a living out of email marketing, as you could with any profitable method but you would be limiting your income potential...

    I'd like to know the answer to this as well... it seems there would be no dependence on one central traffic source e.g. G / FB / pinterest / whatever... which attracts me the most...

    Email marketing always has and always will be the most profitable thing you can do in IM.

    Its tried and true. Doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon.

    I do not see it going anywhere. This business is like any other.
    You have your up and downs. If you like security then a desk job is best.

    Clayton Makepeace does over 60 Million $$$ a year with email marketing alone.

    It's all about building a trusting relationship with your subscribers and giving away
    some of your best quality content. After a period of time, they will consider you
    as the "Go-to" guy and see you as a friend. Then, when you recommend a new
    product to them, many will be more likely to buy it. Who would you rather buy
    from? . . . a stranger, or a friend? . . .

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    I know someone on this forum who makes a killing only doing email marketing, and off of mainly new subscribers, so I could only imagine if they took the friend approach that Wiz speaks of..... Actually, I don't have to imagine, he did say $60 million :D

    Isn't the initial/ongoing costs quite high?

    Obviously there is a clean difference between reaching to the customer by putting long hard effort on Search Engine and Social Media and Reaching to the targeted customer just by sending emails right in the inbox. And sometimes the bulk emailing can reach 100k emails in one hour it depends on your list otherwise sending emails is all about how sending them properly.

    well here is a rough initial,, buy a domain less then $5 for 1 year, buy a hosting $3 each month, create just a simple optin page theres a lot of guide or software here on bhw, (in my opinion)rent the best autoresponder service aweber for $1 first month and $29 each month for 500below subscribers.

    so your recurring bill is $29 + $3 = $32 per month

    i am sure if you have reach 500 subscribers you should have already atleast made one sale promoting aff products, if you make


    traffic is not a problem too if you only have money :) just buy solo ads , you'll get high quality leads and most likely making more than what you have paid for
