How to Make Money From Home Using Email Marketing

make money online with email marketing
Although there are many ways to earn an income, email marketing  has got to be the most effective way to learn how to make money from home. It works because your customers come to know, like, and trust, and when they do, they are likely to buy from you again and again.

Email marketing is a killer method when it comes to effective low-cost Internet marketing. This is the most widely-used and effective ways to build targeted traffic to your website. It is used to stay in touch with your prospects and customers, send out invitations, and make special offers.

Even though it is easy to make a steady income using email marketing, it is important to stick to a few basic rules to ensure your success. With that in mind, here are 7 proven strategies to apply:

1. Your mood will show up in your writing, either directly or indirectly. This is why you should  never write an email when you are not feeling positive and upbeat. When you smile while talking on the telephone, it shows up in the tone of your voice. Similarly, when you are happy when composing an email, it shows up in the tone of your writing.

2. There are many scams online, and one of the biggest is buying a list of subscribers. This list may as well be made of names picked out of the telephone book because the subscribers are completely unresponsive. Instead, build your list from scratch. Also, spamming will always cause problems, so never spam.

3. The most important part of your email letter is your subject line. Regardless of how well-written your letter may be, it will be unread unless you persuade people to open it. Thus, spend the bulk of your time coming up with just the right subject line to provoke curiosity.

4. Be a real, honest, and genuine person. Nobody will trust you if you exaggerate, write subject lines that don’t relate to the topic of your email, or make promises that you have no intention of keeping. While you may be able to get away with these things, you can’t expect to fool all the people, all the time. People respond to sincerity more than anything else, so if you want to be known, liked, and trusted, then write in a way that makes people want to receive your emails.

5. Don’t price too low. If your emails promise only free or deeply discounted stuff, your readers will get accustomed to never buying high-ticket products from you. You will not only attract cheapskates, but your readers may even quibble over your low prices

6. The worst possible thing you can do is be boring in your emails, and the best way to do this is to write corporate-like correspondence. Leave business-speak in the office. When writing to your subscribers, you need to sound like a trusted friend offering valuable advice or providing useful recommendations.

7. Your newsletter should offer commercial-free emails mixed in with your sales recommendations. Write emails to express your interest in your subscribers, emails that improve their lives.

Applying is the best way to learn how to make money from home. When you become an expert marketer, your dreams of financial independence will come true.

    One of the most important tips here is #4.
    Not only is it unethical in a way that will lose you subscribers, but the FTC has gotten tired  of the complaints; they are getting themselves firmly implanted in the mix as well.

    • The biggest problem to email marketing is actually that of false claims and lack of trust. I wonder what those who send those spammy emails really want to achieve. Any way, I think it’s because there are still some people out there who, because of greed, still fall for those pranks. But any business entrepreneur who really wants to promote online using email marketing should take into consideration these points.
