There are hundreds of persons making up to 6-figure income running a mailing list groups over Internet.
I have more success sending my ads out using these lists than any other method. There is a need for more lists for benefit of advertiser as well as profitability of those who run them.
Mailing lists are advertising lists that are Spam free. These lists work this way. The customer joins by agreeing to receive mail in return for privilege of being able to send ads in list. They are free to advertisers as well as those who want to start a list.
But this article is about starting your own mailing list so you can make more money. You can be successful following instructions below. First take a look at one at http://groups.yahoo.com /. Type in advertising or free advertising into finder at this site or sites below. Some literature calls these opt-in mailing lists.
Before I go further, I want to make sure that you realize that there are many failures due to fact that some do not want to work at it. However, you can win.
1) THE WINNERS. I talked to a couple in British Columbia, Canada about 18 months ago. They own 7 lists with over 100,000 total members. They told me that it took about 2 1/2 years to build and that they make a penny to three cents by daily mailing to lists. That would be $1000-$3000 per week. They mail different offers daily and sometimes 2 per day. They are constantly looking for new winners.
2) THE LOSERS. This person starts a mailing list, and thinks that they need only a link from their site and a listing in directory from prime source. One year later, they have 32 members. The mailers better have good offers to make money. Usually, they don't.
YOU HAVE FOUND A PRIME SOURCE. I recommend that you start your first list at Yahoo. Some groups are harder to navigate. One complaint that I have with all lists that new customers should get a web based email address to get mail that they will receive. Your can read those ads that you want, and delete rest. The best email service is at http://bigmailbox.com.
