Un-Subscribe Rate ** People on your list that don’t understand this form of marketing will unsubscribe. As soon as you have a good base of people with similar activities, you will reap the rewards.

Problem lies in trying to obtain a good quality list – interested not only in your products, but also in your correspondence enabling you to move forward with future offers, keeping your customers happy.
Ad Income *** Generally ads to this type of list are in demand for two reasons.

Definition of the list:
List is much the same as previously discussed. However this time, you’re not sending tips, hints or content, but ads for programs that you promote yourself together with your own products.
This differs from an ad list, because all products promoted are handled as your product. There are no outside sources sending ads to your list.
Although no content is supplied, this can be especially useful if you’re well-known, and have a strong following. We are down to the last of this List Building Series in the next article.
