Default A MUST for Success!

One of the things you must have to be a successfull
internet marketer is a list.

Most professional internet marketers agree that each
member you have on your mailing list is worth approx
$1 to you every month.

I know you hear this all the time but the money really
is in the list. If you concentrate on building your list
today you will garantee your success

I agree with you 100% email list allows to reach them over and over and over again! Sometimes having the right email list can be a goldmine for your sales

More to the point, it's having the right list, knowing how to USE and monetize that list. You could have a list of 50,000 people, but if they're the wrong people, it's useless. Similarly, if you don't give the people interesting content, they'll get bored and leave your list. And finally, if you don't know how to get them to respond to offers/promotions, then they're worth squat.
It's not about the list. It's about being able to USE the list.

Pete, that's exactly what I was thinking as I read. One of those purchased lists with a million email addresses will not result in $1,000,000.00 per month. However, a good opt in list of purchasers could be worth much more than $1.00 each.

You nailed the content issue too... if I was selling the greatest golf club since the Big Bertha and sent the offer to 50,000 bowlers, I doubt my message would be heard.
