With over 120,000 Twitter followers and over 10,000 Pinterest followers, growing a social media audience has become easy. Now my top priority is growing my email list. Since this blog’s creation, it has gained a few thousand subscribers. Although it’s a great start, I want to be have tens of thousands of subscribers, and several marketers emphasize how “the money is in the list.”
I have a plan in place for accomplishing this goal, and part of the plan is good news for everyone here. A free gift I give to my subscribers is the Pinterest Mastery video tutorial. In addition to this gift, I will also be writing free guides that will be shared exclusively to my subscribers. That means if I decide to write a quick guide containing 25 different methods to get more repins on Pinterest or something similar, I am going to share it with you if you have subscribed to my list.
Another big change I have already made is using iContact to deliver all messages. This gives me superior flexibility as well as a new structure for sending out emails. In the past, I used WordPress’ subscription option which sent out emails seconds after I came out with a new blog post. With iContact, I will now be sending an email to my subscribers every week with links and short descriptions for the blog posts published that week. Anyone who remains subscribed to the WordPress option will still get emailed when I come out with new blog posts, but I am going to move everyone over from that list to my list on iContact.
In order to focus more of my time into writing the informative guides for my subscribers and launching more products, I will only be writing one blog post every day. Anyone who subscribes to my email list will be sent an exclusive blog post every week via email that will never get featured on this blog. That means if you want more of my content, join the list.
Although I am putting in an extensive amount of work into growing my email list, I am one person, and I need your help. If you subscribe to my email list, you will get the free Pinterest Mastery Video Tutorial just like before. The only difference is that I am working on a guide that contains 27 different methods to get more retweets on Twitter. Right when the guide is finished, I will distribute it to everyone on the list, and anyone who wants the guide in the future just has to subscribe. I also encourage you to spread the word to your friends because there is strength in numbers in accomplishing big goals.
