So you could actually send your newsletter/ezine to 1000-2000 subscribers in one day, if you worked hard. But you wouldn't have time to answer any email you get from your subscribers. And more importantly, you wouldn't have much time to work on getting more subscribers! Not to mention fact that all that manual work is extremely boring and you probably wouldn't be able to keep at it for very long.
Having 1000 subscribers should be your first short-term goal. That's right - Short term! Do you think you'd be able to achieve this working like a maniac on all tedious tasks involved with managing a newsletter/ezine? If you do then you need to go back to top of this article and read it again. If you still think manual way is THE way, then I have failed miserably and you need to contact me so that I can explain it to you properly. Really.
A good management system automates things like adding subscribers to your opt-in list, removing subscribers who have requested it, personalizing every message sent to your subscribers, sending each message as a solo-email to each subscriber, keeping statistics that will allow you to track your success, sending email to your entire list or just a small ultra-highly targeted portion of your list at any time in relatively near future and so on.
In other words, a good management system will save you A LOT of time, which again means that you can spend your time getting more subscribers. Even though you start small, you don't want to stay small, do you?
So if you want to build a LARGE list of opt-in subscribers, then you need to get organized and start using a good management system right from start. Your list is your own personal gold mine, and you should treat it as such. Don't risk making a mess of your gold mine by not being organized right from start.
I wish you best of luck in your list-building adventure. Go for it! Have a great day...
