The Bad News is… building an email list is hard work if you don’t have a proven framework to follow.
The Good News is… growing a profitable email list of future buyers is easier with the right support and guidance.

A lot of my clients LIST-BUILD actively and each one of them uses it a little differently in their business, as we are all on different stages in our entrepreneurship journey.
So I asked a few of my clients to share their experiences of building an Email List and want to share that with you today.
Michelle Stelling, founder of The National Association of Digital scrapbookers plus the owner of Photo Editing & Digi Scrap Academy which is a Membership Site shares with us how she monetizes her email list.
"We provide a community of grandmas and mothers with an easy, fun, and creative way of bringing their photos to life using digital scrapbooking techniques.
I started my business in 2007, and although I have been list-building since then and have tried many different techniques, my favorite and most effective strategy is list-building via webinars. I feel that my most serious customers come from attending my 1-hour webinar. My webinars bring me the highest rate of return. I have 4 different ways to advertise my webinars.
Building a good solid email list has helped me bring many new members into my business. For example, last week I ran a quick promotion, normally my membership is $37 per month. This promotion was for a $5 first month and $37 the months after. I only ran this promo to my “non-members” email list of 7,000 and within 2 days welcomed 99 new members. I only sent 4 emails (2 each day) and had a deadline of 48 hours. It is important to have a deadline. It was a spur of the moment decision and was very successful. If all these 99 members continue to renew next month, this would add nearly $3,750 each month. This is the power of list building and building trust amongst your community. I also have a weekly video blog that helps build the know, like, and trust factor."
Melissa Russel of Beloved Bust shares how her email list helps her in Showing Up and Being Consistent in her Business
"As I get more into building my list I've found it reassuring in a mindset way that these people are my warm audience and signed up to hear more or get to know me. I use it to imagine my clients reading my newsletters as an incentive for me to keep in touch and share information that they can really use. I value their feedback and can continue to provide in ways they truly need and value.
I'm so glad Sneha has kept this in my attention and importance as I've built my online business."
Lindsay Whiting of Self-Publisher’s Book Plan shares why you should build a list even when you have nothing to sell.
"I’ve started two businesses so far…and I believe that building an email list that you own and control is one of the most important things you can do to ensure the success and longevity of your business. Don’t wait until your products or services are ready, to communicate and collect names for your list.
Start now! Build interest in your leadership, your products, and your services so you’ll have primed buyers when you launch."
