How To Be Successful With Email Marketing

To be successful with email marketing is, in actuality, pretty simple. I said simple, sometimes not easy. I am going to give you information that you might pay hundreds of dollars to get anyplace else.


Because I have been where most people are at right now. Don't have enough money to buy a great course and try to "get by" with $7 courses that promise the world and success tomorrow.

This first installment about email marketing will delve into some of the most important aspects of building a successful campaign. The only guarantee I give is if you disregard this information, you will fail.

So grab a beverage and sit back and soak it all in.

Does Your Website Have This HUGE Mistake?

I will let you in on a little secret…. come closer…if you haven't figured out it is conversions which make you money. Yes, changing visitors into customers is where you make your money.

Traffic is not that hard to get, really.

How many of you are sending a ton of traffic to your sites and getting very little action. Maybe a 2% conversion of visitors to customers? Less?

If you are using free traffic methods, how many hours of time do you spend generating this traffic? If you are paying for traffic, do you even break even? Are you hoping for the "one great month" where you actually make a profit?

I know, I have been there too.

You made the site, squeeze page, or whatever kind of site you are sending traffic to get sales. You work your butt off getting traffic to it and are disappointed in the results.

You wonder if  is all worth it.

You get frustrated.

You read about all of these people doing the same thing and having all this wonderful success and you are not. You may have some success, but wish it could be more than what you are getting now.

What if you could get more conversions (money in your pocket) very easily without doing much more work?

No, I Am Not An Idiot….

I got some personal responses to my last post. I guess some of my friends in the online industry think I am an idiot since, of course, email marketing IS the lifeblood and staple of the industry.

My purpose of the last post wasn't to look like an idiot. The purpose of the last post was to get some people to think a bit about what they are buying and planning on doing.

Each day we have thousands of people trying to make money at home or online. To some, this is a feeding frenzy to make cash easily. A good sounding story which is almost fact may get money out of their pockets.

I am also NOT saying everyone selling email courses are trying to fleece the populace as there are many who truly have products which WILL help you develop a great email marketing campaign. the problem is there is WAY too much hype in these products.

The main problem with most email marketing courses: They are pretty sparse amounts of good tactics and information delivered. Most are nothing more than "Hey, sign up for an autoresponder, put up a squeeze page , and then send traffic to it."

Yes, this is the very basics of email marketing; but, there is a WHOLE lot more to it than that…at least if you want results. If you are not getting the results you hoped for, then keep reading.

More Scammy Internet Fun!

In the past month I have found many other pretty underhanded ways people are making money on the Internet. Some did surprise me. I hope others haven't fallen prey to these; but, I am sure a lot of people have. These are ones you need to watch out for!

As I rebuild some of my Internet ventures, I needed some extra income so I did the unthinkable...I looked for employment. Of course I chose online to do it since it seems everyone and their brother now requires you to apply online.

Applying online, signing up for different job sites, and all the rest is the norm now. I was out of the job market for quite some time and was surprised how things have changed. For those thinking of doing the same, there are some things you need to watch out for when applying online and to also keep in mind.

Watch Out For This Scam!

Most everyone knows there are plenty of scams out there. There have been scams since the beginning of time and the Internet just makes it much eaier for them to pull the wool over your eyes.

My daughter almost got bit by some scammer using a pretty standard con. You need to understand scammers are con men. They are playing you for money.

Since this blog is about making money at home, these scams are VERY easy for people to fall into.

This ISN'T about buying a report to "Make A Million While You Sleep" which doesn't tell you much of anything type scam either. These are REAL con men (or women). Though in my mind most of those IM things are scams too.

These are very real scams and you will see them everywhere when we are done reading my short post about them.

My daughter was desperate for a job and found a "shipping" job on Craig's List. It was $450 a week for easy work doing some shipping for a company from home.

Make Money With Your Cell Phone?

To continue a theme with cell phones, even saving money for the service only goes so far. What if you can actually make your cell phone pay you too? This is what I am gong to cover in this post; ways I am using to make my cell phone pay me money.

A wealthy friend of mine once told me to NEVER buy anything you can't make a profit on. I always try to heed that wise advice. He held nothing dear and would always listen when someone wanted to buy something of his for more than he paid for it.

So how can you make your cell phone pay you?
