    Your Q has caused me to think about how an e-mail campaign may be monetized. This is NOT e-mail, but it's similar enough for those results in my search to apply, mostly.

    I don't exactly know the answer, so here's what I've learned:

    • Monetize with ads. ...
    • Cost-Per-Action (CPA) Get user to DO something
    • Cost-Per-Install (CPI) Get users to install an app, etc...
    • Paid subscription model for premium content. ...
    • Sell your stuff. ...
    • Affiliate marketing. ...
    • Uncover best times to send with analytics. ...
    • Segment for more precise targeting. ...
    • Offer native ads. ...
    • Test for best performance.
    • FREE Giveaways and subscriptions. Build user base (my own idea)
    • (partly from htt ps://power › blog › expert-guide-email-monetization)

    I don't know if there is a "best."

    CPA requires very little behind-the-scenes work.

    If you've written your own software, this is a great way to sell it.

    It's good to learn the basics before diving in. I did not do that, and so I'm doing it now. ;)

    No clue on conversion; I would guess that's highly variable, depending upon specifics.

    But thank you for calling my attention once again to this incredible software. I purchased earlier in 2019, started a project, then got incredibly busy and haven't used it...likely, to my own detriment...

    I just set up another project. (It's for joining a site and a free give-away.)  :)

    Scraping right now.

    As it's a give-away, and the message recipient could only benefit, this is a good baseline to gauge basic response. I'll be excited if I get a single response!

    I'm doing this EXTREMELY small scale: So far only 195 messages sent via contact form. :|

    I'd also say study writing this kind of message. Look up (on G00GL3):
    • direct marketing
    • writing email marketing (as it's similar, but not identical)

    Also, the better you filter domains...the higher percentage you'll get with more precise targets matching what you want to market to.

    (e.g. website cannot be (!.gov) if you're not selling to government)

    (e.g. domain must contain phrase "Mercedes")

    And, filter language and country...

    And, think a bit about search string(s). This part is very fun!~ :p:p:p:p
  • Hi, may I know r u use the spin text message? How to filter domain? Redirect to domain this option?
  • DeeeeeeeeDeeeeeeee the Americas
    Hmm...I'm NOT using spintax. I've been told it's a very good idea.

    My projects so far have sent:
    123, 72, 30, 27 messages.

    Anyone more experienced know at what threshold I should start spinning?

    For these miniscule batches, does it even matter?

    For sending LOTS of messages (don't know when it becomes  a LOT) you want to spin, else the (realtively) few email proviers may block you and send the msg to the dreaded SPAM folder!

    You can filter in a number of ways:

    Use ! preceding something so it is NOT present.

    (see above example)

    You can filter if a phrase is on the contact form, page found when scraping, source code,,m or even domain name.

    Redirect to domain I have unchecked. Again, any expert(s) can provide better answer? Thx!

    I got my first response! Hooray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It was like the first time listing in SERPs resulted in a sale. Of course,my first run with GSA Website Contact is a free giveaway, but
