    For email marketing to be profitable you essentially need two things:

    1) A list of email addresses of people who are interested in the niche that you're operating in.

    2) Products or services to sell to those people.

    You can't just bombard people's email accounts with sales pitches though. You need to provide value to them also, in terms of information and advice.

    Taylor Bright, a Philadelphia native, has come a long way as an actress, singer and a songwriter. Bright was 15 when she acquired an enthusiastic online following. With a youthful style of pop; her song “Striped Socks” was a hit in the teen market and made its presence felt on Billboard’s dance charts. But artists grow and evolve, and Bright’s music has matured considerably since then; today, she favors a much edgier approach to her song writing. Bright, having left behind the pop-rock of her past, characterizes her present direction as “pop with an urban edge and familiar dance undertone.” That direction is perhaps best exemplified in the infectious single “Always Be This Way”, executive produced by Jim Beanz. http://www.facebook.com/TaylorBrightPage

    When thinking about email marketing it's essential to understand your audience and your customer base. I regularly send out to a database of 10,000 which I have segmented down to about 50 different target audience segments - some of these segments may only have around 100 email records associated, however by making the segments really targeted there is a high probably of selling a product or service. Email marketing is a numbers game, however it's not a case of bombarding your email contacts with emails, it's a case of providing them with the type of content that they want when they want it, so it's really important that you understand your audiences, have personas established before you even start.

    I use GetResponse. It is super simple to use, 24/7 customer service and a 1 month free trial (no credit card required!) Try it out and if you don't like it you can always jump over to Aweber.

    Totally agreed with that idea, lot of people in the web digital seems to think that email marketing is dying but its not. With retargeting and big data, its getting more and more easy to send the right email to the right person. With big data, its only gonna grow in my opinion
