Learn the exact tips and strategies I used to grow my list from 0 to 10,000 in less than six months on a new domain. This course walks you through the entire process of setting up a password-protected resource library, producing awesome lead magnets that people really want, creating simple forms for your readers to obtain your free lead magnets, warming up your new subscribers through welcome sequences, and emailing your lovely list on a regular basis to keep them. As a bonus, I talk about ways to monetize your mailing list -- right after I built my list to 10,000, I made over $1000 in a single day after a single email to my list about Amazon Prime Day when my blog was just 10 months old. I now have more than 70,000 subscribers and my list allows me to generate a full-time income through product launches, affiliate income, product offers, tripwires, and advertising revenue by way of traffic back to my blog.
To give you an idea of the sort of signups I see on a daily basis, here are my new subscribers when my list was nine months old:
And here are the stats on my mailing list at one year old:
And here are my stats at almost (but not quite) two years old:
My blog is just over two years old now, so I wouldn't consider myself a well-seasoned blogger quite yet. But at the one-year mark, I began making a full-time income from it each month, and a HUGE amount of credit for that goes to having a great mailing list. Last month (October 2018) brought in over $65k, and its really all due to my amazing mailing list and the way I use it.
This course is for you if you're willing to create free content for your blog and give it away in a particular way, which I will explain. While not every blog post will need to have a freebie, the more the better. I will explain how to figure out what your readers want and how to create it.
This course is NOT for you if you're looking for a one-click solution or a hands-off technique. This system requires content generation. It will be work.
I use ConvertKit as my mailing list marketing platform, and all of my examples will show you how I utilized ConvertKit to grow my list. You can use another mailing list company, but the examples shown cover ConvertKit, which I HIGHLY recommend for this technique. I include a code in the course for a free 30-day trial to use ConvertKit, too.
ConvertKit is the only thing you need to spend real money on. Everything else can be done with free resources. I do use some other paid tools, which I will share with you, but they are optional.
My goal is to get you 1000 new subscribers in the next 90 days. I don't promise you'll make it there, but it IS possible with a concerted effort.Together, we will work on meeting this goal! To help make this possible, you will receive an invitation to my private List Love Course Facebook group where you can ask questions, share your progress, and celebrate your wins!
I inspire and lead the way for other bloggers and online content producers to prosper and succeed!
I began my online career in the '90s, where I was a beta tester for the "World Wide Web" and ran an online academy for America Online, teaching their employees, remote staff, and volunteers to create their online service and build their community. I extended my reach to books, where I became a bestselling author of more than 60 computer and travel guidebooks. I have taught over 20,000 students through courses and reached over 10 million readers over my 20-year career.
As a businesswoman, I co-founded a successful travel publishing business that produces innovative and award-winning guidebooks. Through that business, I built my mailing list to more than 60,000 and that single list has driven sales for YEARS and resulted in a $18,000 product launch.
Almost four years ago, I decided to "do something I love" with a personal blog about my DIY projects & crafts. I had NO mailing list, but I knew I needed one so I could reach MY people. In January 2017, I created a resource library out of necessity -- I needed a place to house my DIY & craft freebie downloads for my blog readers. I was astounded to discover just how successful that resource library would be in building a list from scratch. In less than six months, I had more than 10,000 subscribers. I spent no money on Facebook ads to build this list, nor did I use pop-up ads on my site to get people to join it.
I can teach you how to do this, even if you're brand new to the whole idea of a mailing list and list-building. List Love is a step-by-step system that will create a list you'll LOVE!
