When I started blogging I didn’t know about newsletters.Had no idea how to design one. I had a difficult time understanding why, I needed to collect emails.
I finally found the answer :To make your blog a biz it needs to make money.
Sponsored post and freebies are great ,but having a set plan to make money.Thats adifferent level of blogging .
So baby steps.
Email List building questions I had:
- Why would I need emails?
- What do I do with it?
- How to know it’s not spam?
- How to clean up the list?
- What to write in my emails.
- Whether to just send my post or some extras .
- What if nobody read it?
Seriously where to start.
That’s when I had found Pat’s Email the Smart Way first edition.
Learnt a few things .Implemented .Baby steps
But I was still apprehensive .
What with my blog design issues.Trying to have a regular blogging schedule.
The first Pat helped with the SPI Pro theme.
Second:Blogchatter helped with #Half marathon & #MyFriendAlexa
3rd Pat Flynn to the rescue.The updated revamped ,Email the smart way.
A favourite Webinar topic:
“How to build your list and sell :How I made my first zillion”
A very popular quote:
“The money is in the list”
But does everyone with a list become a millionaire?
But do you open every email you get?
Do you read and act on every newsletter that lands up in your inbox.
How many emails do you open?
I open max 7 emails from the many landing up in my inbox.
Two ,I check for, every week on the scheduled day.So I don’t miss any important stuff. On a side note, I got way more organized when I learned that you can buy Microsoft Office for Mac, once set up I was much more efficient.
Both are full of goodies.They make me feel good .
I learn something new every time
Now if you have signed up for your favourite bloggers newsletter.
What do you expect?
Something to help you with whatever problem you wanted solved when you signed up.for the news letter.Right.
In this totally free e-book you will learn everything to know about email market.
Most importantly :why the size of the list is not important.
What’s important is how engaged your list is with your content.
I absolutely love everything Pat does.
Because he radiates empathy.
Kindness,sincerity are not just offline qualities.
They are reflected in your online actions too.
It’s great to make money.But nobody really likes being repeatedly scolded ,prodded,pushed virtually.
Every time I have associated with Pat Flynn it has taught me something.
Newsletter Services: My limited experience
I first started with Mail chimp .Some problem with the spam filter.
Didn’t go back.
Tried out mail poet .It’s free .Not happy.
Tried mailmarketer last year.It’s very basic.Doesn’t work very well on your mobile.
Tried Madmimi . It’s pretty cool.They have a free option.Needs a credit card for the rest.
(I really hate the word “Credit card”)
Trying out the platform will update.
