Through out the years that I’ve been doing Internet Marketing, I’ve been asked many questions, but the more frequent one is:
“Eddie, how did you make your first money online?”
I would always answer with a simple, straight forward and to the point response:
I would then give them a smile and then I would just walk away thinking that I had just given something to change that person’s life.
However, I saw people really not understanding what I meant or how to actually make money as an affiliate marketer.
So I’ve decided to further explain this, as I feel that I may have been missing the bigger picture here.
In Fact, There Was A Missing Piece To This Puzzle That I’ve Never Revealed, Until Now…
I know how to build an Email List, I have different email list for different niche markets as a matter of fact.
I honestly have focused a good chunk of my time on my Email Marketing. And THIS is where most of my revenue comes from!
I’ll show you EXACTLY the business model where all my money comes from in a few minutes.
So, Is Building An Email List The Most Important Thing In An Online Business?
A big fat YES!
Knowing how to build an email list is easy, anyone and everyone can do it, plus it’s very simple.
I can honestly say that EMAIL was that led me to making my first $10,000 online.
How Do You Build An Online Business Using Just E-Mail?
We all know Email is a way of communicating to others. But exactly how can you use it as a backbone to your Internet Business?
Here are the benefits on focusing on your Email List:
– Create a Blog Page or 1 Page website
– You can start the business in less than a couple of hours
– Takes LITTLE training to start
– Simple free traffic strategies work incredibly well
– Works in almost EVERY niche online
– As long as you have traffic, you are capable to build a list
– As long as you have a list, you are capable to make money!
Of course, nothing can be guaranteed on any business for the results or any money you can make but this simple system actually DOES work! If you can get opt-ins using the right strategies, then you will have a qualified list. You can learn the right strategies through this great platform that you can check by clicking here (which is where I’ve learned everything I know about building a successful online business.)
What you make will be completely dependent on your list, your marketing and the effort you put in!
Believe It Or Not, This Is The Entire Business Model I Use
Let me SHOW you each piece of the Business Model One by One!
1) Traffic: Just like any business on the Internet – you need traffic. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. There are more than 24 ways of generating traffic online, all ranging from free to paying strategies.
The best part is that no matter where you get your traffic, as long as you have a website with an opt-in so that people can provide their best email will work like a charm.
When I first started, I focused on FREE traffic strategies to build my first list and make my first $10,000.
And let me tell you…
The same strategies still work today!
I use the following free traffic strategies:
A) Forum Marketing
B) Blog Marketing
I’ll go more in depth on these two strategies in a moment.
2) Your Website:
Creating a user friendly website is crucial in engaging your potential customers. You can learn on how to build your website quick and easy and most importantly the right way on this easy to follow platform that I use for building all of my websites. To find out more about this awesome platform that I use, click here! Trust me on this one, you won’t believe how easy it is to build your very own website.
3) Create a Thank You Page: You’ll be able to create what I call a Thank You Page. An email which you can write usually through an auto-responder that will keep a database of all the emails of your subscribers and you can easily set these to go automatically right after someone submits their email address and clicks the Opt-In button. There are many auto-responders out there, but I strongly recommend you use an auto-responder like Aweber or Get Response.
I’ve seen many people miss-use the Thank You Page with a simple “Thank you for signing up to our list.” And in all honesty, I really can’t get my head around this. Why many marketers are still doing this and not taking advantage of their Thank You Page like I do?
Let me tell you, this is very simple…
When someone puts in their Email address for you on the Opt-In Page, the system will re-direct that person wherever YOU tell it to.
All you do here is take an affiliate link – and paste it in the system.
This way the person who just gave you their Email address ends up on a page where they can buy something. When they DO, you make money!
On all of my Thank You Pages, I make a good small fortune and so can YOU!

Let me tell you, usually the Name Field and the Link Field will create a “click-able” link once I’ve written a comment and it’s approved by the owner of the Blog site.
