How to Build a Highly Responsive Email List
 So People Open Your Emails, Read Them Voraciously, Click on the Links With Gusto, and Buy Your Stuff!

Daniel Levis

with Daniel Levis

What’s the first and best thing you should do to start a new business… or crank up an existing one?

  • Start a blog?
  • Master SEO?
  • Hire a Traffic expert?
  • Dive into Google analytics?
  • Buy a Facebook advertising course?
  • Become an A-list copywriter?

No. None of these useful. They’re off-target and expensive activities.

Instead, you need to build… and continue to expand… a hot email list and nurture the daylights out of it.

The GOOD NEWS is that when done correctly, this is also one of the fastest, easiest, cheapest, SAFEST, and most straightforward success steps you can accomplish.

How do you do it?

If you want to build a lucrative, enjoyable, and sustainable email-list-driven business of your own…

Join us at the Business Success Cafe as Daniel Levis reveals his email list-building and monetization secrets.

About Daniel Levis

Daniel Levis has been building and monetizing email lists for himself and his clients since 2004. Throughout that time he has engineered, tested, and refined dozens of list building and lead generation campaigns and spied on over 2,000,000 subscribers at each step of the acquisition funnel… as they opted in to those campaigns and interacted with over 10,000 discreet email messages that Daniel wrote and then sent to those subscribers.

If you’re an investor, you’ve probably seen his work for The Motley Fool, Safe Money Report, Real Wealth Report, Gold Newsletter and other well-known financial publications.

If you’ve ever looked for a business opportunity… bought a self help course… or been interested in information for bettering your health… you may have seen his work with Mark Victor Hansen, Robert Allen, Dr. Stephen Sinatra, and others

Great Content in Every One!


I really enjoy the Business Success Cafe because of the content.

I got something out of every one that I have listened to.
I also like that even if I miss the on air interview I can always listen to it later, usually after my work day is done and I can really listen to it.

Keep up the good work and keep providing the good information. Thanks!

No Matter What Your Niche

with Connie Green

Connie Ragen Green has been a "Super Affiliate" for a decade and defines this business model as recommending what you love in return for a commission.

She will teach you how to:

  • get started (no matter what your niche topic)
  • earn commissions right the next twenty-four hours!
  • add this as a passive income stream in your business

Absolutely Amazing!


The content that Cathy provides each week on her Success Cafe is absolutely amazing.

What makes it such a great program is the diversity of topics covered and the fact that each speaker is challenged to present tons of content within a 20 minute coffee break.

As a result, I've been exposed to many ideas that I would not have had the opportunity to see otherwise.

What to Know...and What to Buy

with Blake Hutchison

Many business owners favour purchasing an existing business (or several!) for very good reason.

Ultimately, you'll be acquiring traction and this, in almost all cases, is the hardest thing to build in a brand new business. In other words, acquire an existing business'll have a big leg up!

So, what do YOU need to do?

a) Decide what kind of business is right for you and aligns with your skills

b) Determine your purchase budget

c) Find a business to buy

d) Assess the business prior to making your offer

e) Make the leap!

In this presentation, Flippa CEO Blake Hutchison will reveal what people are buying right now...and why.

He'll also reveal how to assign valuation multiples that give you serious bargaining power when considering your first business to buy.
