Have you heard that you cannot get rich quick with email list marketing? Well, it is true. But, although you cannot necessarily become a millionaire overnight (yes, you will read accounts of this occasionally, but there is usually more to the story or just absolutely amazing and unprecedented luck), you can make a nice side income, and possibly even turn it into a fairly lucrative business (one that you can operate as a home based business opportunity seeker, right from the comfort of your own home).
One of the most important things to remember, though, is that you have to have realistic expectations when it comes to email list marketing. There is no magic, just step by step planning and execution. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment.
One thing that many home based business opportunity seekers may not realize is that it does take some money to get started. Depending on your budget, you will start out either farther ahead or behind your competition. This is not necessarily a reason to spend your life savings on an email list marketing campaign, just understand that your results may be limited by your budget until you start to make a profit.
Another common misconception is that you can easily get a solid email marketing list by buying one. Not necessarily the case. Although there are plenty of very reputable list brokers out there who are ready and willing to sell you a solid list of email leads, they are simply that—leads. They are not actual customers. You still have to do the necessary work to convert them into believing and trusting customers. This kind of business does not start itself, you have to have something to offer to the recipients of your email marketing list.
Every home based business opportunity seeker should understand that there are many, many benefits to using an email marketing list to make money online, but knowing how to get started, and understanding the time frame involved before you will see the success you dreamed of, will help you get ahead.
