    I'm PAUSING My Dead Email List Case Study: Here's How Much $$ I Made

    I'm PAUSING My Dead Email List Case Study: Here's How Much $$ I Made

    I started a case study to try and revive a dead email list of about 20,000 subscribers.
    However, it turns out my domain reputation is bad for this particular domain (my other email sending domains are excellent). So, my emails have primarily been going to people's junk folders, leading to terrible open rates.
    As a result, I'm PAUSING this email case study UNTIL I can improve the domain reputation.
    I'm working with an email expert and using a tool called "Mail Warm" that will likely take 2 to 3 months to show significant improvements to my domain reputation.
    However, there is a silver lining! My highest open rate (of 14%) was an email related to side hustles / making money online.
    This shows me that this audience might be very interested in much more than coupons and discount codes. I think I have a clear path to monetization moving forward. But, I want to do it right.
    I need to take the extra 2 to 3 months to stop sending email broadcasts to the list, so that I can systematically improve the domain reputation. Give me another 3 months or so, and I'll be back sharing updates.

    How to Use Artificial Intelligence for Content Marketing and the Future of SEO with Jeff Coyle from MarketMuse

    MarketMuse uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to analyze content, suggest topics to cover, and create better content. It works best for SEO writers who want to develop highly effective content marketing strategies not based on gut instinct. 
    I've also recently been hearing all the news about GPT-3, robots writing articles, and wondering how all of this will impact content generation for bloggers and SEO's in the future.
    I wanted to dive more into the subject and could not think of a better person than Jeff Coyle to explain what's going on.  I'm excited to share this interview I did with Jeff to get his take on artificial intelligence as it relates to SEO, how these changes will impact us humans, and the latest advancements that Market Muse has made in machine learning for content creators.

A must if you're interested in income from websites!

I find the niche of 'making money online' to be hugely overwhelming and daunting but this podcast always seems to calm my nerves, and show me that you can start simply by choosing a niche that you are passionate about, researching some good longtail keywords and making some content that marries the two. IF you want a podcast that gives you simple steps to starting an online business (blog/fba) then I highly recommend this podcast and Spencer's website too :D
