“I wish I had started growing my email list earlier.”
It’s the most common phrase we hear from professional bloggers. So many people miss the opportunity to capture email addresses in their first few years of business. That’s hundreds – possibly thousands – of readers you’ll lose track of. Newer bloggers either don’t know how important their list is or they’re focusing on things that should come long after you’ve developed trust and credibility with your audience.
Don’t be another blogger in the bunch to look back and regret all the leads you’ve missed out on.
Why grow your email list?
No matter how great your products are or no matter how transcendent your writing might be, if no one is seeing them, what’s the point? You’re a creator because you have something to say. You have a unique perspective that you believe can help others and you want to teach everything you know. To do that well, you need an audience to teach to and a way to continually communicate with that audience.
Enter the email list.
