So its clients for you or the company that contracted you.
two scenarios for me.

I work full time for a company in DC as a Digital Marketing Manager.

But also, my last employer asked if I could continue to do hourly work for them when I left, so I do that on the side.

So basically, two paychecks.


 Tha Boss said
And can you ost a sample of the email.
I cant post a sample email as it would get indexed and could be traced back to me. However, it's pretty standard.

For example, my new job is B2C (business to consumer). we're selling a SAAS (software as a service) product. So for these, we're basically sending out emails and trying to convince people to buy our product. There's more to it, but that's the gist of it.

My other job (the PT one) is B2B (business to business). We're selling a service. We're trying to convince companies (like mirosoft, under armour) to hire us to create their next website, or help them with their next marketing campaign, etc



 Tha Boss said
Last question if its targeted to people how do you find the target or know who to send it to
Many ways.

First off, it depends on what you're selling.

For the SAAS product we sell, we're targeting people involved in local government. So that applies to all 50 states, therefore we don't have to worry as much when we send emails out.

My company also pays services like ZoomInfo to buy lists.

So for example, if you were selling computer monitors. You could go on ZoomInfo and pay for a list of decision makers at IT companies within 50 miles radius of a zipcode, and then you could add those names to an emailing list and start emailing them promoting your product.

other times, people will fill out a form on our website and tell us that they want to essentially be targeted.

we also have events and webinars we host, and in order to attend you gotta give us your info (name, address, title, company, etc). and we'll add those names to our marketing efforts as well




its not that hard on the surface. collecting data isnt hard in general, its interpreting and makign decisions based on the data that's hard.


for example, for your clients, do you get better email results when you send emails asking people to register for a webinar before lunch or after lunch. is it better to send those emails in the middle of the week or early in the week? you can also run A/B tests to compare different subject lines. does adding photos effect your open rates?

we can also add tokens to emails to make them seem more personalized.


so for example, when you get an email from Banana Republic (for example), and the email says "Hi Jason" instead of "Hi" < which email are you more likely to open?


you can also segment emails further.

for example, you can send one email that's been personalized based on timezone, for example.

so everyone on west coast, when they open an email, it will have a picture of a nice sunny beach followed by text.

but people on the east coast will get an image of a city skylines followed by text.


there's no tried-and-true formula - it depends on your business, what you're selling, your audience, etc

How do you know what the best subject line is for an email? I run into that problem and then a lot of people do not open the email

I'm on the cusp of being in the same boat. One more solid real estate deal for a flip/rental and it's game over.

Not all side hustles have to be lots of work. Passive income is what I'm striving for. I made great miney last week with my side hustle and it's passive.

the million dollar question

this depends on many things, such as

- who is your audience? young people? old people? women? men?
- what are you selling? what's your CTA?
- TEST! Run A/B tests, see what is more efficient


i can't answer that question for you unfortunately, but you can get close to an answer by testing different scenarios

Crypto and FanDuel. Tied for first in an NBA tourney earlier this year and used that bread to pay off the remaining balance of my school loan. NBA FanDuel is much easier to me than MLB/NFL. I play MLB/NFL for fun but NBA is where I've had my biggest wins.

My largest Crypto hold is XRP but I've sprinkled in other a*sets. Really focusing on stockpiling XRP for the long haul while it's in this level though. Granted those aren't steady sources of income, but I can do them from home and when I'm off work.
props for being smart with that windfall
