How to Start an Email List Today

How to Start an Email List Today

You have all heard how important an email list is. (I am presuming , but if not scroll to the bottom of this post, please)

Don't wait any longer, start building your email list today, right now... it will only take around 30 minutes.

I'll show you how in 3 easy steps. Are you with me?

  1. Sign up for an account with Aweber  (This is who I recommend after 10 years and 4 different email marketing service providers).
  2. Create a sign-up form for your email list. Use these instructions for Aweber.
  3. Put your sign-up form on your blog, in the sidebar and the about page.
It's that easy. 

The sooner you start your list, the faster it will grow. 

And don't worry about WHAT TO WRITE? cause if you sign up with Aweber and let me know I'll send you a link to free pdf on what to write in your emails. You can let me know with this special Contact Form
This very thorough pdf includes everything from email writing basics to creating automated emails to selling a service and developing loyal customers/readers.

WHY AN EMAIL LIST IS IMPORTANT:
1. You OWN your email list. You do not own Facebook or Twitter and these platforms can change their policies. You do own your email list, and it is only run by you and your decisions.
2. It's the most used way of keeping in touch with others. Everyone has email.
3. You can build a good relationship with your list.
4. Email beats social media in getting click throughs to your blog.

  1. Thank you for this write up cause I really needed a push.I can totally relate to what you are saying about having a list. I have struggled with the decision to start an email list for a long time. I wasn’t sure people would want to hear what I wanted to say. At the beginning of the year, I promised myself I was going to create a list so this is a great impetus to do so.
