My Journey With Email Marketing! Welcome to my journey guys. This will be my first actual "journey". What I will be doing is building an email list in the dating niche. For the first month or so I will be using free methods to drive traffic to my squeeze. Those free methods will vary between, getting google alerts and using that to post comments, yahoo answers, and social media websites. After building up a decent amount of subscribers I will then move to paid methods. I'm new at this so it will be a learning experience for you and me as well. I want to do this journey to show those who are just getting into email marketing that you don't have to just do email marketing in the IM niche. Just go with what you are more confident in writing about. Work That I Have Already Done: Alright, So I have been working on content for my list for the past 4 days now. I have 4 articles as of today. I have already purchased a website in my niche I will be using a wordpress plugin to make a squeeze page. The plugin is called wp lead plus, and it is free. Things I Will Be Using: Alright so what I will using to send the emails will most likely be aweber or constant contact. I'm not entirely sure yet. We will know by tomorrow afternoon. Goals: Tomorrows goal is to write 2 articles because on saturday I will be working a 10hr shift at work. My goal for the first month will be 1k subscribers. That should be enough for me to make a little money to invest into paid sources. 2nd months goal will be to have 2k-2.5k subs in my list. And $1k-$1.5k in earnings 3rd months goal is 3.5k-4.5k and $2-$2.5k in earnings 4th month 6k-7k subs and $3-$4k in earnings My end goals is to be making $10k a month by my birthday which is in 6 months. I know anything is possible if you put your mind to it. I'm shooting for the moon with this one. One of my biggest goals though is to learn from this and hope that someone else learns from this also. I will be posting here tomorrow with an update of my progress. I will also be posting daily goals for you all to see. Hope to see you all tomorrow.
