When Email Marketers say the rural money is in the list, they mean it literally because that’s how they make tens of thousands of dollars per month.
Actually, they say, “The money is in the list.”
Nevertheless, I searched for years to find out how the big boys and girls are making money online—only to discover sales through email.
I don’t know why I didn’t realize this sooner since I was using this technique to help sell my main eBook.
In addition to over two dozen affiliates helping to promote my eBook.
Of course, I was responsible for the main thrust of promotion, but Affiliate Marketers work like ants to promote your product or service for a commission!
Internet Marketers tried to shroud a glorified email sales technique in a cloak of magic and mystery.
Like you, I bought the hype because I thought it was something new.
When I pulled back the veil, I discovered they were using smoke and mirrors to disguise their money making technique.
They would probably argue that they packaged, re-packaged or improved Email Marketing.
Now, you know that the real so-called secret to their uber success is plain old email marketing, with a twist.
It doesn’t matter who you name that’s crushing it whether its Pat Flynn, Anik Singal, etc., they all use an email autoresponder (email marketing) connected to a sales funnel (affiliate marketing), which becomes Network Marketing.
Thus, the process becomes a circle of profit or click funnel.
Nevertheless, it’s brilliant and still works.
This is the gist of how the bulk of their income is generated.
Some of them create software, info products, courses and videos, but the lions share is in the list.
That is why they are always having launches!
I remember when I launched my eBook Secret Of Estate Sales Marketing Success and a subsequent hard back.
Before the launch, I posted a short blurb on my estate sale blog announcing its release in a few months.
The immediate response was overwhelming!
Frankly, I was shocked and stoked that there was so much interest in my forthcoming eBook.
What was my secret sauce?
Without the Email Marketing model, you can’t generate multiple sales in one transaction online.
Fortunately for me, I was sailing in the direction of the Estate Sale Marketing wind, with all channels open.
My research revealed that there was a huge void in the Estate Sale Market, so I promoted myself as an authority, which I am.
That is not to say there were no other estate sale info products available, but what was on the market wasn’t widely publicized, and the authors were virtually unknown.
That is what I took advantage of.
As a result, consumers were chomping at the bit to get my info product.
However, I was still writing and editing it.
Their demand PUT A RUSH ON ME, which is a good problem to have!
As soon as I listed my eBook on ClickBank, affiliates jumped on it!
It was an amazing experience and ride.
That was my most successful and profitable eBook and book.
I promoted and sold it on every free self-publishing website available.
Notice I said PROMOTED and SOLD.
Those two words denote TAKING ACTION.
I knew I had a winner, but I didn’t realize how big.
Had I not taken action on the Estate Sale Market data, I would have missed an opportunity to play in the Internet Marketing game to learn, earn, rinse and repeat.
Basically, that is what you must do to win in any hot market.
Now, it’s time to show you the money—how I did it!
I could lie and say first I built a list, but I didn’t.
However, after I saw how smoothly the launch was going, I quickly started building a list.
It was part of the process to give away something free (of value) as sort of an ethical bribe to get the email, so I created another product.
In exchange, I offered this product (already available online) that I improved with my knowledge, skills, abilities and opportunities, which equals VALUE.
After customizing a simple estate sale contract, I gave it away.
When the list took off and started building on its own, I decided to sell the same contract across the web for $10, and a longer, in-depth contract for $25.
The eBook sold for $25 and $47 on multiple online book store platforms and in major bookstores, worldwide.
My decision to create an email list was the single most compounding effect on sales.
Because I chose to offer a free incentive that many people in the profession need, my email list exploded (and continues to grow).
Not only that, estate sale and estate liquidation professionals became members on my site, and bought other products and services such as website and hosting packages—everything was converting like textbook.
Before I knew it, I was building multiple lists—even on the blog.
Literally, everyone wanted a contract.
It is also interesting to note that my eBook and blog was written for BEGINNERS!
Yet, all of sudden, a professional writer on EstateSales.org contacted me for an interview, and EstateSales.net purchased some of my books for their annual conference.
I was convinced that I was clicking on all cylinders when I began to see my work (what I was doing and saying on my blog) copied elsewhere.
Now, when I search those keywords, I see my ideas and inspiration everywhere.
Are you starting to see how powerful Email Marketing is when used in conjunction with other Internet Marketing strategies?
I just shared with you how I KNOW that rural money is in the email list when combined with Affiliate Marketing.
In summary, build a following with helpful content, which builds a relationship,while building an email list simultaneously.
Then, promote things they may need for their niche, passion, hobby, business and/or drive.

I can’t make this any plainer, simpler or easier.
Now is the time for you to stop searching the Internet and take action to make money in your rural area.
Can I tell you something else?
At times, since I started this blog, it seemed like I didn’t know what the hell I was doing.
Well, the truth is, technically, I was confused at times.
The web is like a spider and it won’t stop spinning just because you took a break.
It continues to evolve, change and grow, without you, but you will be left behind.
I used to think SEO and Internet Marketing were so easy.
Co-workers taught me SEO and basic code in the mid 1990s when I worked at an international bank.
They tried to explain Google Adsense, but I was overwhelmed trying to learn the basics of creating a website.
I knew just enough to build my confidence.
When the time came to build serious income producing websites, I created my successful estate sale blog in no time flat.
Prior to that, I built other successful sites that I struggled with because I was determined to learn the CMS.
As the administrator or webmaster, you need to understand how the CMS operates.
Those early, super sophisticated systems were built to make money 24/7, but they were cost and labor intensive.
The two sites I will never forget are AtlantaAntiqueCarEnthusiast.com and CollegeParkWebCity.com.
They were both off the chain with relevant content, back links, SEO, promotions and my own ad sales.
Unfortunately, I did not jump on the email bandwagon with them—I was too busy learning and implementing other features on the fly.
I’m not sharing this to brag, I’m sharing my background information to inspire you.
I’ve been in the Internet Marketing game a long time, got out, pursued other offline interests, and came back.
Would I leave it again?
It’s too difficult now.
Google isn’t the only social platform with algorithms and restrictions!
They’ve upped the ante and are trying to push the small guy out IF THEY AREN’T PLAYING BIG!
But, WE WON’T STOP UNTIL THE RURAL MONEY STOPS!
There is plenty of money online and offline and I am still proving it in my quiet way.
When YouTube slapped my channel I was pissed because it hurt my Adsense revenue.
So, what am I doing about it?
I removed Adsense from my homepage, which is my PREMIUM REAL ESTATE.
Then, I laid YouTube to the side until I’m ready to promote something.
All of YouTube’s grapes aren’t sour because I learned a lot about its viewership demographics.
YouTube is like a huge, hungry beast that has to be fed different types of video content on a regular schedule.
It other words, its viewers have a voracious appetite, especially since YouTube Slapped Small Creators.
These are viewers coming from all social media networks, worldwide, 24/7 and 365 days a year.
Many of them are affluent and watching for entertainment, but a huge segment are looking for opportunities.
When I started my channel, most of my viewers were predominantly men (like on this blog).
Now, women are dominating viewership everywhere!
And, yes, they are hungry to start a business and/or make extra money.
Why am I telling you this?
