How many times have you heard that old adage, the money is in the list. It seems to be one of the most common beliefs when it comes to list building and there are a few ways that you're going to make money from your list, but these days, you have to work a little harder for it. Your money is NOT in the list. It is in the relationship that you build with the list members. Anyone who tells you otherwise doesn't have a handle on the reality of their market. You do have the option to make money from your website list. In fact most people would have no reason to make one, were it not for their desire to use the list to sell their services or their products as well as to offer other ideas to their customers.
