    I see that among the main forums of bhw there isn't one especially dedicated to email marketing.

    Many IMers still consider it a powerful tool but I see so many people immediately deleting any email when they perceive it's coming from a marketing site, even if they themselves have suscribed to the site to get their "free download".

    So what do you think about the importance of building a mailing list in the present time?

    It's still worth it but of course its the quality of the list that counts.

    Mine has about a 30% conversion rate for anything I send out so its just the work you have to put in building one that keeps most away.

    of course its necessary - if you have users opting in before they do/dont make a purchase - you can generate easily another 20-30% in revenue using a well written campaign over the next days after opt in

    I think the email marketing section is exclusive to paid members. People still use/read emails in 2012. Hence its worth it.

    It is depending on if your are doing Blackhat or whitehat and most importantly the NICHE you are on and the way you are getting subscribers.
