4 reasons why email marketing is important and the lifeblood of a successful blog/website!
Why email is important:
Despite what you may think about email, people do still use it and use it OFTEN to buy things.
Create a strong email list, and you will create a growing asset that you can continue to bank on until the day you retire.
How do I start?
Great question. There are really two ways you can begin.
The first thing you will need to do is sign up for an email service. MailChimp is a great way to start.
We now use ConvertKit for our email marketing. They do not have a free account, but their automations and features are much more robust than Mailchimp.
See our full review here: https://createandgo.com/convertkit-review/
Either service is fine to start with, but it’s important to keep in mind that while MailChimp is free for your first 1,000 subscribers, it does come with limitations. You won’t be able to monetize your email list with affiliate marketing. We explain the comparison of the two services in more detail in this article: https://createandgo.com/mailchimp-vs-convertkit-email-marketing-software/
If you want an email service that is powerful, reliable, and robust (or don’t want to deal with switching over to a better email service after 2,000 subs)– ConvertKit is worth it.
So you’ve selected your email marketing service. Now…
How do you get people to sign up?
There are a few different ways, but one of the easiest is embedding a signup form into your current articles. You can simply link the sign-up form into your posts.
So somewhere in the post, you can say “Want more awesome stuff from me? Check out this link here to get on my list and get free blogging tips from me!”
You can also embed the form directly into the articles you create.
Prepare yourself for success. The earlier you start collecting email addresses, the better off your business will be!
