Send Email to a ListEvery affiliate marketer has a STRONG opinion when it comes to how often to send email to a list.

In fact, the other day I asked this very question on the Warrior Forum.

  • Others do it on a weekly basis
  • Many deliver email twice a week
  • And a few say a daily email works best

So what’s the answer?

Start Over with Affiliate MarketingFor the last few weeks I’ve enjoyed a nice vacation in Panama.  During this time I caught up on a few podcasts I’ve accumulated on my iPod.

The one episode that stood out was put together by Glen Allsopp of Viper Chill.  In this lesson, he answered a question that successful entrepreneurs often get:

Niche Affiliate IncomeCan you make money with small niche sites?

This is a question I want to answer in 2012.

You see, I’ve built a successful authority affiliate marketing business.  But I’ve never tried my hand at creating multiple small-scale websites.

So my goal for 2012 is to figure out this whole niche site thing.  I even created a special series that talks about how I’m doing it.

In today’s post, I’ll provide my first income report from these experiments.  I’ll show what has made money.  Plus I’ll detail a major setback that’s a negative impact on these sites.  And finally I’ll give my opinion on the future of niche sites.
