“Email list building is essential, not optional.” Shane @ ThriveLeads

Chances are you’ve heard the phrase, ‘build your email list’, in some form or fashion many times since starting your business.

And if you’re being honest, you probably haven’t spent as much time building your email list as you should have.

The truth is, (and I feel a serious obligation to get real with you), you cannot have a successful online business without an email list.

If there ever was gray area on this topic because of the leeway social media afforded us to get in front of our ideal clients as a way of selling our programs and services, those days are long gone, my friend.

Just for clarification, social media is a great way to build a relationship and build your email list. It’s a great place for you to showcase your expertise.

The requirement to grow an email list of engaged subscribers is the difference between you realizing a profitable business or being left to struggle along without any consistent income to speak of.

I can’t stress to you enough the level of urgency around building your email list.

And let’s face it, wouldn’t it be nice to have an email list waiting for you the next time you were promoting a webinar? Of course, it would.

So you’re probably wondering what’s working right now when it comes to list building?

I’m so glad you asked.

Email list-building takes forethought and consistency. Today is a new day! You can put this task at the top of your ‘to-do’ list by using the strategies I share in this video.
