Shownotes

List building advice is everywhere these days—from putting pop-ups on your website to creating “opt-ins” that give people a reason to sign up—but most of them don’t actually help you figure out how to get people to give you their email address. People often give us these individually dialed-in tactics without providing the actual high-level strategies necessary to make email marketing work for your business.

In the first of a two-part series on email lists, we’re going to talk all about easy email list-building strategies that I’ve personally tried or seen with many others. The next part will be all about what to do once you have those emails and what you should send them.

In this episode, you’ll hear…

  • 04:38 - Considering whether email is right for your business
  • 11:04 - How my email list journey started
  • 17:59 - The two roads to collect emails for your list
  • 20:41 - How to position your email newsletter as inherently valuable
  • 28:20 - Using freebies to attract newsletter subscribers
  • 37:21 - Where people go wrong with freebies
  • 41:08 - Actually getting people to your list
  • 43:06 - Q&A from Ultimate Bundle™️ members
