The top thing that you can possibly do as an online marketer, no matter what it is that you’re selling, is to build an email list. Email has been around for years, and has proven to be the most stable way to build a sustainable online business.
Because with email marketing you’re essentially building an audience. An audience that you can tap into and ping any time you want to get the word out about something.
Think of it kind of like owning your own Huffington Post or CNBC or FOX News. It’s really no different. And it’s super powerful.
Behind every top 6, 7 or 8-figure plus online marketer I know, lies email marketing. It’s the backbone of their entire success.
So, there’s no reason why YOU shouldn’t be building an email list too.
Sadly, up until this point, especially for newbie internet marketers, it’s been kind of challenging. There wasn’t a lot of information and tutorials and courses out there on exactly how to go about building a list rapidly, you just knew it was something you should be doing. And on top of that, most of the “solutions” you sort of had to “Frankenstein” together to get them to do what you wanted.
Well, now, with tools like ConvertKit, it’s crazy simple for even beginners to get started. And inside their powerful tool, they make it easy to build out custom landing pages, as well as segment your lists, for even more powerful results and conversions.
The only things you’ll need in addition to ConvertKit is targeted traffic. For this I recommend checking out my traffic page for a list of top traffic sources. Also, if you’re looking for a more powerful selling tool for creating things like upsells, and membership sites, I recommend Clickfunnels.
