After speaking with him a few months earlier, I was inspired to create my own squeeze page (a page with the sole aim of collecting an email address), which can be found at The back story is that I come up with niche and website ideas every single day, but just don’t have the time to follow through with the majority of them. This guide is going to reveal the concept of Email Blogging, a strategy which I personally think is one of the easiest and most profitable ways to make money online.
The thing that really surprised me was the open rate I was getting on those emails.
Typically, an average open rate for any marketer is about 20% – 30%. This means that for every hundred emails you send, it’s respectable to get 20-30 people to open them.
My instinct wasn’t wrong, and it didn’t take my friend long to start having success.
In fact, he’s made close to $100,000 in his first year.
First of all (as many of you know), I built a very successful blog in the personal development niche called Plugin ID.
I no longer own the site, after selling it for a mid five-figure fee, but did manage to grow it to over 7,000 subscribers in just 18 months.People are also implementing my ideas, which is great to see.Especially in an industry where people are known to buy products or stumble across ideas, and do nothing with them.If you can produce a high converting sales page and a decent product, you can make a lot of money very quickly.I don’t relate to this method, since I prefer to give value in the form of content before I would ever try to sell to somebody. The friend – who just gotten into internet marketing 12 months earlier – came to stay with me for a couple of weeks.
