Influence is associated with:
Do your subscribers open most of your emails?
If they open your emails, do they actually read your message or do they open them up and then delete them?
Do they actually read what you have to say to them (listen to your advice)?
Do they purchase your products through your affiliate product link?
Are they always eager and excited to get your emails hoping that you have a great product to present to them that they can buy?
Do they ever express their needs to you through email?
You could have a list of only 200 to 500 subscribers who are eager to get your emails and can’t wait to see what product you have to suggest to them to purchase or you could have a list of 100,000 subscribers who delete your emails as soon as they enter their inbox because they are tired of being hammered with constant sales pitches. They call this “spamming” and not marketing. You need to have a relationship with your email list – and not just send them product after product to buy. If you are searching for long-term subscribers in your email list then you don’t want to send them offers of “junk” constantly or they will lose interest in what you have to say to them.
