    Hello everyone. This is my journey thread.

    I will try make $1,500 a week with email marketing and will use this thread to track my progress/help those interested in doing the same.

    I can't decide in what direction I want to go in, CPA or Affiliate marketing. So to give myself time to decide and to build a long term empire ;) I've

    decided to build an email list. Anyways, I plan to update this thread atleast once a day with what exactly I did that day, my earnings, and to answer

    any questions.

    FAQ


    Q: What niche are you gonna use?
    A: Biz Op but I may scale and do another list with another niche.

    Q: How are you sending your emails?
    A: Constant Contact (60 day free trial ^.^) and Aweber

    Q: How do you get emails to email?
    A: People opt in to receive my emails by submitting their email in my squeeze page.

    Q: How do you make a squeeze page?
    A: I bought OptimizePress. It costs $87 but is worth every penny.

    Q: How do you get traffic to le squeezepage?
    A: I get traffic via paid traffic sources. PPC networks such as Adcenter, Banner Ads, and PoF

    Q: Why would someone enter thir email into your squeezepage? What do they gain?
    A: They either want more information on what I'm offering, want to receive an e-book/guide I'm offering, or want to learn from me.

    Q: So how do you make money with email lists?
    A: You develop a relationship with your email list. You give them value, know what you're saying, and once in a while, you promote an offer/product with them. This is very effective as you can market to them numerous times and this can be a long term money making empire (so they say).

    Thanks for reading, now subscribe to this thread, it'll be interesting ^.^ I promise.

    I think affiliate would be better if you can find good products with monthly residuals

    Love the Q & A set up you initially did, really gives a well rounded perspective on what you are doing plus you gain a bit of insight straight away. I hope success finds you soon!

    I've been using aweber for a few months now and know it well. But I hear constant contact is better so I wanna try both and see which I like better.

    Today (2/8/13) is Day 1.

    My goals for today are the following:

    1. Read through the copywriting section of this forum
    2. Create 5 squeeze pages that I'll test tomorrow
    3. Work on writing a couple thank you emails and choose the "best" one.

    I'll post again later today to update you guys on what I've done today and to answer any questions asked, if any.
