Hi, I have been working on putting a series of articles together and it is still in progress but would very much like to share some of what I have at this point. What I am going to continue to share is where all of my efforts in affiliate marketing started to actually work and begin to make a profit for me.
This series will give you tools and information to use your site to begin promoting whatever niche you have chosen. It will allow you to serve the ones you have set out to help and get the tools, like what I am sharing here, to them so they too can advance in their efforts.

So, let’s get started. We are going to start at the beginning of what you need to know for email marketing.
How to Setup Your Email List—Email Marketing Tutorial Part #1
Ok, you have set up a website and you have spent a ton of time creating content and getting approved for quality affiliate programs. You have installed all the links on your site and now are wondering how long it will take for web crawlers to give you enough recognition to rank your site useful among all the other websites out there.
Let’s say, this is a way to bypass that wait. It will still happen in time but why wait? as long as you are providing a useful service and adding quality content you will continue to get ranked but when, how long?
This process will let you take control of that and get your information to people who want it. This promotes activity on our site and decreases the waiting period. Not to mention, you could actually start making sales/commissions right away!
1. Email Service Provider
The first part is all about getting signed up to an email service provider. There are several out there to choose from. The most popular, and ones you may have heard of ConvertKit, Mail Chimp, WPmail, Jilt, Bluehost, and the list goes on! For economical and functionality, I use ConvertKit and strongly recommend them.

For someone like myself who is new to building their website and how to generate traffic and followers this article is so helpful. I never put much thought or time in building up my email list guess I was just worried about getting my links up and hopefully make money.
For someone like myself whos website is more service industry orientated is an email list still as important?
An email list is important no matter what industry you are in. Even if you have a specific customer who has already used your service, wouldn’t you like to build loyalty and provide another service or continue providing more service.
Not only that, an email list will allow you to grow your audience and provide service to even more customers through follow-up emails.
It is the best way to develop residual traffic, return service, trust, and loyalty. Being profitable is a byproduct.
