Quick question…where are you at with your mailing list? Have you yet to get started on it? Or, have you started it but it’s growing as slow as molasses?
If you’re keeping up with the latest “what’s hot” trends in the blogging world, I’m sure you’ve seen plenty of blog posts around the socialverse about email marketing and the importance of having your own mailing list for your business.
I know some folks who do not have an email list yet for their online business – and that’s okay. There isn’t a rule in the blogosphere that says you’ve got to have one.
And if you’ve been on the fence about start your own mailing list, let me tell you what the benefits of having one are real quick.
First and foremost, you own your list, 100%. It doesn’t belong to Facebook or Google so you can do anything you want with it. Legally speaking that is. You don’t want to sell your subscriber’s info to third parties. That’s a big no, no and is one of those things bloggers should never, ever do.
Second, an email list is targeted meaning the folks who joined your list are interested in what you’ve got to offer.
Another thing, email lists have a higher conversion rate than social media campaigns. So just imagine the money you can save!
Most importantly, it’s a personal connection between you and the subscriber. It’s your opportunity to gain their trust and get to know you on a one-on-one level.
And unlike on social media where you’re not sure whether your posts are getting seen, this way you know they’ll see your email when they check their inbox.
Sounds pretty good right?
