How to start building an email list


You've probably heard that the money is in the list. But it can be a minefield figuring out where to start! It's an area I get a ton of questions about so it's about time I recorded my answer somewhere!

Here are 3 simple steps to list building:

1. Work out what your audience is struggling with right now and find where they hang out

2. Create a quick to action, free or low-cost solution based on step 1

3. Pick an email tool and set it up to automatically deliver your awesome solution

There's a fourth unwritten step. Which is to shout about your awesome freebie from the rooftops. 

There are other ways to build a list but the list above is a good place to start.

Not Just Another Email List!

Want to get emails that you might actually want to read? I've gotten lots of lovely feedback about my emails - easy to read, action-packed and fun too. Don't worry, it's not one of those daily, inbox-filling affairs!

About Me & the Tech Hub

I'm Vicky and I'm on a mission to make tech less scary! I can get your systems up and running with as little tech fuss as possible or teach you how to do it yourself (or for others if you're a VA)!

In the Tech Hub you'll find freebies, DIY courses, done-with-you training sessions, and I can also take it completely off your hands.

My zone of awesomeness is around websites, email marketing and getting systems to behave nicely together.
