How to make a dollar for every subscriber on your list
I get this question a lot:
“Tell me, how many subscribers do I need to make good money from my list?”
I’ll tell you…
But first, I’m gonna break the biggest myth about this whole thing, okay?

2) They use high-quality leads that become more responsive over time… unlike “average” leads which lose interest and drop off quickly.
This is where it gets interesting…
The smart email marketers know this one secret…..
80% of their sales come from 20% of the subscribers on their list.
These are the subscribers who…
