Before anything else, it is important for you to have good reasons to have your own mailing list in the first place. Consider the following:

If you join a Network Marketing company, your upline would require you to write a list of 100 names of people whom you know. The people you know are your prospects because they might be interested in becoming a consumer or starting their own Network Marketing business like you.

If you own a Conventional B2B Business, your target prospects are other businesses, and their information and contact details are likely to be found in the Yellow Pages or telephone directories. Thus the information found in Yellow Pages and the telephone directories are your list of prospects.

So, why have your own mailing list? Because that is where your potential customers are!

The common mantra that most other Internet Marketers follow is "The money is in the list" and I tend to agree with them.

Of course, that is often true only if you harness your mailing list well and that your subscribers are responsive in the sense that they do bother reading your mails every time you send a broadcast to your mailing list. How responsive your mailing list subscribers are depends on how well you develop your relationship with them and how much you understand who your prospects are. Otherwise, don't hope on cashing in onto your mailing list!

Regardless of what kind of Internet Business you are starting, having your own mailing list is a must. No exceptions.

I am aware that there are JV brokers who are making money simply by making successful Joint Venture deals between the product creators and E-zine publishers without having to have their own mailing list. But then, having your own mailing list gives you tremendous advantages that both JV brokers and product creators do not have.

For one, whenever you have a product or service you either own or are an affiliate for, you would not have to look further than your own mailing list thus you can be in profit within hours from the time you send out your endorsement letters.

The bigger and more responsive your list is, the more sales you will make and in a shorter period of time.

Secondly, having your own mailing list is more important than just having your own product. Even if you do not own your own product, you can still be an affiliate or Joint Venture for other people's products.

For the third and most important reason: having your own mailing list gives you the opportunity to first prove your credibility to your subscribers through what you have to share with them in your E-zine! Now that we have established that your mailing list is an asset worth creating, you will also come to learn that...

Your E-zine vs. the Newspaper Company

... you have the following tremendous advantages over the company that brings you the daily newspapers simply by running your own E-zine!

You do not have to invest millions of dollars and a ton of effort into your E-zine as opposed to newspaper companies. Starting your own E-zine is practically free to low-cost.

You do not need to worry about delivering of your E-zine to your readers on time when every issue is ready. Using an Auto Responder with Broadcast feature, you can send your E-zine issue to hundreds, maybe thousands of your subscribers at the click of a button.

With the leverage of the Internet, your E-zine can be your personal paperless newsletter that can reach to as many people as you wish. Thus starting your own mailing list is in your reach. Not everyone can start a newspaper company, but everyone sure can start his own E-zine!
