    I made $1.5. That's it. But I couldn't be happier. It's been such a struggle, but I finally pulled it off. I started email marketing on April 1st, and only now, Oct 26th, have I actually made a cent.

    You don't know how close to giving up I was before, but I'm just so happy that I've made money. This is really encouraging. I know I can make a lot more money (maybe thousands) in the future.

    I was just so happy I felt like sharing the news.

    Congratulations, the first one is the best one! Now scale it up and work your way to the millions. And I'm curious about the amount of emails as well.

    Congratulations man! Don't give up and you will make a lot of money! However be careful when it comes to email marketing, I don't know what your method is, but avoid spamming.

    Congrats op now you just need to improve your inbox ratio and get some serious scraping going on for leads and you will start to make serious bank. A million dollars one dollar at a time is still a million dollars. Great job keep up the good work.. and if you find your self in need of a custom email sending application with all the blackhat features you need for success... well Myself as well as many others on here can code it for you. Best of luck!

    Thanks. And yeah, I gotta keep improving and working at it.

    Thanks :) I'm not sure how many I've sent altogether. But I think before October, I probably sent 35-45K total. But not all of the emails I sent were promoting something. But to earn the $1.5, I sent 37,371 emails.

    Thank you. I'm definitely going to scale it up. I sent 37,371 emails. But I was cold emailing.

    I sent a newsletter promoting a site (through my affiliate link).

    Thanks! :)

    Yeah. Thanks!

    Thanks, I appreciate it! The email I send is blackhat, but I am careful.

    Yeah, I'm glad I didn't. Thanks!

    Thanks! I sent to 37,371 people.

    Yeah! Thanks for the support :)

    Thanks! I really appreciate the kind words and encouragement :) I'm definitely going to step things up. And yeah, I'll definitely hit you up if I need your help.

    Congrats on your success. The first dollar is always the most memorable. BTW I just realised that you said you were cold emailing the people. I don't actually think that is legal. You can get in trouble with that. Also it's not a good thing as you don't know the people and they don't know you.

    If you want real success, build your own email list and email to them. They are most likely going to be more responsive and will pay you for any information that you promote.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks. I sent you a PM about the service I used.

    Thanks. But I am super careful, so I think I'm okay legal wise. But yeah, I can definitely see the benefits of having a fully opt-in list. The thing with building my own list is that it takes a long time, which is why it puts me off. But I'm definitely going to look into it.

    About 2241 opened the message, and 20 people clicked on a link (16 clicked on the site I was promoting, and 4 people clicked on a random story I put in the email). The thing is, I made my email act as a sort of landing page, so I didn't get that many clicks. I made 1 sale from the 16 people who clicked on to the site I was promoting.

    Now I'm just working on optimizing this as much as I can.
