Email Marketing

Email marketing is one of the most popular ways to earn money online. Your subscribers will be loyal and happy to try out products that you create or promote, but only if they trust you. Trust takes time, so you should get set up today and work on your know/like/trust factor.


I have been using MailerLite for almost 3 years and I highly recommend it.

MailerLite is comparable to the more expensive Email Service Provider’s (ESP) but is free for your first 1000 subscribers, which makes it affordable for everyone.

Use this affiliate link > MailerLite to get a $20 credit when you upgrade to a paid plan.

FYI: You must have a branded email address to be accepted to MailerLite. That is an email address from your website hosting provider @ You can try “yourwebsitename @” as well.

This ensures that your emails are legit (for readers) and not spam (for the ESP company). Most ESP’s have this requirement.
