Imagine for one minute that you owned a large apartment complex.
In total there are 5,000 apartments and each apartment has paying tenants.
Each month you earn money when those tenants pay their rent.
The money drops nicely into your bank… you need not do anything other than managing the properties and enjoy your money.
Today the money is deposited directly into your bank account automatically, but a few years ago you might have had to go from apartment to apartment collecting the rent.
It might have been a pain, but it wasn’t hard work.
The hard work was building the apartments and fitting them out with kitchens and bathrooms getting them ready to be rented.
Once built and rented though… all you have to do is collect the money.
Imagine that the rent was only $2… (bear with me on this)… I know that rent is usually a lot more but stay with me for a minute.
With 5,000 apartments fully rented with tenants all paying you $2 each month, you would have a nice monthly income of $10,000… for doing very little.
Obviously, I know that rent is going to be a lot more than $2 and a large chunk of the money earned each month can often be used to pay off the huge debts incurred when building those apartments.
But you understand what I am saying here… 5,000 people all giving you $2 a month would be a nice $10,000 monthly income.
The Online Apartment Complex
Now, what if I told you that there is an online equivalent that works in a similar fashion… but without having to spend hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars to build that apartment complex?
Wouldn’t you like to know more?
I’m more than certain you would.
Well, similar to the apartment complex, there is a way to make thousands of dollars each month online by doing very little work… once the system is built that is.
The building of the system isn’t that hard either… it most certainly isn’t going to cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars.
It won’t cost you tens of thousands of dollars… or even a few thousand dollars.
This system can be built for a couple of hundred bucks… yet it can earn you thousands of dollars back per month.
Like having 5,000 tenants all paying you $2 each month, this system can and will pay you a decent income each month.
This online system is…
One tiny yet powerful word… EMAIL.
Email is an incredibly powerful way to make money if you do it correctly.
When I say powerful I do mean POWERFUL.
Before I share some facts about email, let me just explain why email is a powerful way to make money, and please note, this is not just an opinion… these are facts too.
- The work is not physical or laborious… an email can take as little as five minutes to write.
- It can generate a TON of money compared to the effort you put in.
- Writing emails is not difficult and you do not need to be a naturally gifted writer to make money writing simple emails.
- One email amplifies and magnifies your time and efforts… more on this shortly.
- Email can best be described as – and I know it sounds cheesy, but it’s true – your own personal cash machine.
- You can make money using email wherever you are in the world… OK, maybe not from North Korea but, I mean… come on? Why would you want to go to North Korea to start a business? It’s cheap place to start a business you say? Keep reading.
- It’s incredibly cheap to start…. see, I told you I had you covered!
- You can have more freedom when you have make money sending simple easy-to-write emails.
There are many reasons why a person should make money using email but the two most important are:
- You can make a lot of money.
- It is incredibly easy to do and can take just a few minutes to do each day.
Some facts about email:
- There are over 4 billion email addresses being used today.
- In 2020, approximately 306 billion emails were sent and received every day globally.
- 66% of people purchased a product because of an email they received.
- 72% of people prefer to receive communications from businesses by email.
- People check their emails on average 12 times per day.
- Email marketing has a $38 return on investment (ROI) for every $1 spent.
- For every person on an email list, you should earn $1 or more each month.
Over $1 Million In 12 Days!
The popular email and internet marketer Anik Singal once made over $1 million after sending a series of 18 emails over a 12 day period to a relatively new list.
The emails were promoting an affiliate product for Joe ‘I appeared on The Secret and talk a lot of woo woo’ Vitale priced at $3,000.
Anik received half of that $3,000 for each sale netting him a cool $1,103,086 in 12 days.
Who would say no to that?
Anik is a big player and he knows what he is doing but it goes to show how powerful email can be. As I say, that was a relatively new email list that Anik built purposely for that specific affiliate promotion.
I read that Anik’s email list generally gives him $2 per month per person. What that means is that for a list of 5,000 people… he will earn $10,000 per month.
Now you see why I used $2 as rent in the example at the start of this article.
A list of 10,000 would earn him $20,000 per month.
A list of 20,000 would earn him $40,000 per month… etc etc.
I’m more than certain Anik has email lists which have far more than 20,000 names on them.
An industry-wide rule of thumb says that for every person on an email list, the list owner should earn $1 per month.
How much you earn is also dependant on other factors such as the price of the products you promote, how responsive the list is, how congruent the product is to the list, and what kind of relationship you have developed with the people on your list.
If you are only promoting products that sell for $5 to an email list of 5,000 people who hardly open the emails, you aren’t going to make a lot of money.
Even though this is probably the easiest and one of the most profitable online businesses, there is a science to it.
There is a lot of potential with an email business but like most businesses, it depends on the numbers and what you sell.
Going back to Anik Singal who made $1,103,086 in 12 days, he was selling a product which paid him $1,500 in commissions.
Making just two sales in a 12 day period would make most people happy.
Wouldn’t you be happy if you made $3,000 in just 12 days sending a series of emails which took a couple of hours tops to write?
I know I would.
Amplifying and Magnifying Your Efforts
Email amplifies and magnifies your efforts because writing one email means that you can open up a conversation with hundreds and thousands of people.
If an email takes you 30 minutes to write and is read by 500 people, you have technically had 500 separate conversations which would have taken you 250 hours had you spoken to each person individually.
You have spent 30 minutes writing an email which can sell a product AND saved yourself 249 hours and 30 minutes by not having to speak to all of those people one to one.
You see what I mean when I say that it amplifies and magnifies your efforts?
I wrote more about this in a previous article which you can read here:
When you have an email list and you generate $1 per person each month, that doesn’t mean that everyone on that list makes a $1 purchase each month.
No, it means that different people buy different products at different times which adds up to a specific annual amount which when divided by the number of people on the list equals $1 per month… or more!
For example; if you have an email list with 2,000 names on it, each person should be worth at least $1 a month or $12 per year. That list of 2,000 should be worth at least $12,000 a year to you.
That’s $12,000 waiting to be ‘milked’ from an email list.
And the process of ‘milking’ involves sending out simple easy-to-write emails.
Your Own Personal Cash Machine
Maybe ‘milking it’ it doesn’t do it for you, perhaps you would prefer to think more down the lines of that cheesy but incredibly accurate ‘cash machine’ analogy.
An email list is your very own personal ATM and when you want to withdraw some money, you send an email.
The emails you send are the equivalent of sliding your cash card into the machine and punching in your pin.
Whenever you send an email, money pops out of the machine.
The amounts you make will differ from email to email.
Not only will different people read different emails you send out – they won’t all read the same ones, they will buy different products, plus… you won’t always send out ‘buy my stuff’ emails otherwise you will burn your list and be left with a list that will not make you any money.
The Ultimate Freedom Business
Making money through the use of sending out simple easy-to-write emails is not just easy work, it is fun too.
Also, and this is something I really want you to think about, making money by sending simple easy-to-write emails can be done anywhere and everywhere.
This is a business you can take on the road.
It is a business which means that you can make money and travel the world if that is what you would like to do.
As long as you have access to the internet to send emails when you need to, you can be anywhere in the world.
It is a business that not only has the potential to make you a lot of money for very little work; but it can also give you a lot of FREEDOM to enjoy more of your life.
I often write emails when I am on vacation sitting on a terrace overlooking a stunning view while enjoying a cool refreshing beer.
I’ve written emails while enjoying a coffee in a coffee shop, riding in the back of taxis while on the way out for a meal, and while seated on a plane heading off into the sun for yet another weekend break with my wife, Kate.
