(Newswire.net — January 27, 2017) — What if someone said you could make money with your email account? That’s right, instead of just receiving useless spam emails that waste your time, you could actually put your email to work and enhance your financial positioning. Well, with the right techniques and strategies, that’s exactly what you can do.

Three Ways to Make Money With Email

It doesn’t seem like very long ago that email was a relatively new form of communication. It was a novelty – an instantaneous form of communication that required nothing more than a computer and a keyboard. Now it’s considered one of the staple methods of communicating all around the world.

But if you can cut through all of the ringing and dinging of email notifications on your various devices, you’ll discover that there’s more than meets the eye. With methods like the following, there’s money to be made!

1. Use a Service Like InboxDollars

Are you familiar with InboxDollars? From SurveysSay.com, “InboxDollars is an online business that provides payments to users for receiving and responding to email adverts, surveys, games and other features.”

Founded in 2000, the website has paid out more than $25 million to its members since 2006. InboxDollars has more than 30 employees – which speaks to its legitimacy – and is super convenient. Major companies like Netflix, Target, eBay, and Walmart use it to engage with customers.

Practically speaking, here’s how it works. For each email you read and respond to, you get a set amount of money (generally between $0.01 and $0.10). You also get the opportunity to sign up for offers, which can pay as much as $20 or $30. Once your account reaches a certain minimum threshold, you get a check mailed to your address. You aren’t going to get rich, but it’s a nice way to make some extra spending money in your free time.

2. List Building and Affiliate Marketing

Email list building is a hugely popular endeavor for internet entrepreneurs of all kinds. An email list is like a form of currency, it can be used to accomplish a number of different tasks. One of the preferred uses for an email list is affiliate marketing.

Affiliate marketing is the act of advertising someone else’s product for them. In return, you get a set percentage of the revenue each time you successfully refer a customer to the business. If you have a large enough email list and are able to send out compelling emails that draw people in, you’ll discover this is one of the best ways to utilize your email list.

3. Rent Out Your Email List

Another way to profit from your email list is to actually rent it out to other companies and advertisers. Let’s say, for example, that you have an email list with 2,000 subscribers and you regularly send emails about making money online. You could rent your email to a company that specializes in teaching people how to sell on Amazon. They send out a couple of emails touting their services and both you and your audience benefit.

You have to be careful with this strategy, though. If you rent out your list too many times to partners that are viewed as irrelevant to your audience, you’ll see a major uptick in unsubscribes and complaints.

Put Email to Work

As much as email may be a nuisance in your life, there are actually plenty of ways you can put it to work and leverage it as a money-making platform. The key is to recognize where your time is best spent and to focus on recurring streams that will allow you to passively generate income. The three methods mentioned in this article tend to produce positive results for people who fully dedicate themselves.
