Email marketing was quite effective few years back. It requires lot of work. Due to spam laws in force on the one hand and popularity of RSS on the other, peoples' interest in email marketing is diminishing. You can same results if you incorporate RSS. Due to lot of hassle involved, medium marketers are not giving it too much weight.

Yes, email marketing is very effective *if* you know what you're doing. As they say, "the money is in the list" - very true. There are many different approaches to email marketing. One common approach is gaining your subscribers trust by providing quality and objective information. Most people say that it takes from 5-7 follow ups before a customer will buy your product (or affiliate product). So if you're not using a list your missing out on a lot of sales. Once you have a list you need to continually segregate the list. The most profitable lists are very small, but have very active subscribers. The best lists are definitely "customer lists" - meaning people who have bought through you already. The key to email marketing is quality - not quantity as many would have you believe.

I'll show you how I promote my cookbook of Danish recipes (written in English!) using e-mail. The following "sig" appears at the bottom of every e-mail message I send out. I don't believe in sending SPAM or e-mailing strangers, but a sig is OK when e-mailing someone you know. It's just like sending a note on your office stationery. Below is my sig.

E-mail marketing is highly effective to drag targeted customers to your site/services. It is an art how effectively you can deliver your whole service in a single mail with an effective title so that the person should read the mail not delete it without atleast going through. Once he goes through if it is interesting he/she is sure to visit your site.

Yes it is. It is still one of the better ways to get your message out there and to get your product sold. the only way for it to be really effective is to have an autoresponder. The NPN is the best way to go for that. it is only $10 a month and you get so many wonderful extra tools to help you run your online business.http://thenpn.biz/cap/1.php?id=41395 check it out, i am telling you it is worth every dime
