    Thanks for the post. I had done business promotion via email marketing technique & now my business having a smooth movement. Make sure your Email doesn't contain any Grammar mistakes.

    How would you recommend using email marketing for a website that doesn't sell products? I build an email list for both of my sites (both just broke 200 subscribers) but my sites only make money from Amazon and Adsense, so I am having trouble using my email lists to make money. Right now I just notify subscribers when I release a new article on my blogs. So until I get some private/paid advertisers I have a hard time creating successful email campaigns. Any ideas?

    My one site is super niche (specific BMW engine blog) so my email list is a goldmine, but Amazon sells almost zero products that I could market through email and affiliate programs are almost non-existent.

    Is it possible you've made your niche unnecessarily small? Why just one BMW engine? Why just an engine? Perhaps you'd have more success if you expanded it, maybe even to "all things BMW".

    I haven't looked to Amazon for specific car items but so they sell car accessories - dash cams, mats, autostarters, that sort of thing? If not Amazon, what about affiliate programs for aftermarket businesses?

    Yes and no. I ran a bmw parts website prior, but closed it down for something more passive. I chose one specific engine, the n54 engine, because it is the one I have in my BMW, and that my brother has as well. It is a very tune-able engine, so there is a pretty big community behind it (google n54tech). Being super niche has allowed us to crush it in Google and build a pretty loyal following.

    We have been trying to establish affiliate deals with aftermarket brands, but none of them have the capability setup currently and are unwilling to build this functionality into their website just for us.

    My current goal is to go after paid advertising, sponsored posts, sponsored email promotions, etc. but I have had a hard time reaching the ideal advertisers for our site. This month we should break 8k uniques, 16k pageviews, and we get about 100 email subscribers a month. So it is growing significantly and, I think, should be a prime website for aftermarket brands to advertise on. It currently makes $75/m from adsense and amazon which I feel is only a fraction of what it could do with paid advertising or serious affiliate deals.
