    What Should I Do With 10k Targeted Emails ? The niche is PC games all the email users are interesting in PC games. How could I monetize this amount of emails ? Without sending them affiliate links. How could I get an advantage from these for myself instead of promoting other peoples products?

    Put together a 5-10 page ebook, release a small excerpt in your email to the group, and tell them where to go to download the full book for a cost of $10, even at a 1% conversion you are looking at an easy 1000.

    Simple

    btw im just assuming these emails are opted in (else you're facing legal charges).

    CPA & affiliate links are really the best option (think ebay & amazon ? ). Or send them daily summaries of your new articles at your gaming blog (which is monetized).

    Or simply sell the whole list ;) but frankly an email list is pretty much like printing money, so i suggest keeping it and play around a little bit.

    What do you mean opted in ? I put up a form for people to insert their email. And it goes in a list.

    theres a free console email submit atm paying $1.15 in some places. so doing some math:

    5% open the email = 500, 10% convert = 50 conv @ $1.15 each = $57.5 for one email.

    Of course, if you get 25% to open the email and a 30% conv rate, you're looking at $862.5 for sending the email.

    Just depends on how good your writing skills are.

    Offer to joint venture with some smalltime game/electronics store? You can probably get a far higher commision if you work with smaller stores.

    That's exactly what it means ;)

    Anyways best monetary road is still: CPA + some aff codes + promoting your own site (which is further monetized), you dont have to be pushy with all these, just send them the usual good info, and like once in between ask them to fill out your offer.

    Seriously though a 10k list, well you could practically live of that list if you market it right!

    I can get more then 10k this 10k was just a test. I could probably round up around 100k a week if i wanted to. Do i have to put some sort of agreement when I tell them to put in their email ?

    just the usual stuff sign in here for the newsletter or whatever, then the unsign link on every email, but if you use aweber as autoresponder or most other big ones have thoose things automatically activated anyways (aweber usually has double optin + a spamfighter filter so you don't write too spammy emails ;) ).
