Q: How can I get started in email affiliate marketing? And can I make money with it?
A: I’ll answer your second question first. Yes, you can certainly make money with it if done correctly.
As far as getting into email as an affiliate, it depends on what you’re willing to invest into it.
My first suggest is to sign on with an email service provider or email solution provider (ESP). The one I use is AWeber.
These ESP’s will provide you with the tools you need to build and maintain email lists, as well as analytics to help determine whether you get more response on certain days and at certain times.
In the case of AWeber, you can also perform split testing and set up lists where the emails automatically mail at specified dates and times from content in your RSS feed.
There are many options out there, so just search on Google for email providers.
You also have the option to rent lists from third parties for your mailings. Personally, I prefer to build lists organically, as I’ve found them to be more responsive.
So basically, once you have your email list established, just join up with the various affiliate and CPA networks and promote offers that are relevant to your audience.
