You have to hand it to Marie Walker Riddle of Mom Between for her out of the box thinking. What better way to promote her new blog than by leveraging a world famous Internet blogger?
Marie has been cornering me at all the Dot Com hangouts for her “Talking with John Chow” interviews, where she tries to get me to spill the beans on the secret of making money online.
The particular talk is about list building, and how the money is in the list. Many bloggers think their blog is their foundation and everything else (twitter, facebook, RSS, etc.) builds around that. This might be true if you’re just a blogger. However, if you’re a blogger looking to make money online, your foundation is your email list and everything else builds around the list.
When you have a big email list, you have a foundation that is so strong that not even Google can break you. The main purpose of my blog, aside from delivering great content for my readers, is to build targeted leads for my list. If your blog doesn’t have an email marketing list yet, RIGHT NOW would be the time to start one. Everyday you wait is money flying out the window. Watch the video to learn more.
My recommend email list provider is Aweber. Aweber offers a $1 trial account for all new customers. The account is just like a normal Aweber account and includes unlimited email campaigns, newsletter, broadcasts and follow ups. It’s a great way to test drive Aweber to see what it can do for your blog. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. If you find that email marketing is not for you, contact Aweber within 30 days and they’ll give you the $1 back.
