work from anywhere is such a blessing so i’ve been a location independent entrepreneur for years and let me tell you the single most important asset for my business is my email list it is way more valuable than having a bunch of followers subscribers having your email list a devoted list of people who pay attention is gold so this is the difference i noticed between the followers and the email list subscribers the followers may just keep scrolling and the email subscribers they just land they pay more attention they have different behaviors when we keep scrolling it’s not that often that we can buy a 500 course a thousand dollar course meanwhile when we get emails that’s when we take action more often because we just have more time we’re like landing and playing the plane has landed we have time to have a look and evaluate if it is for us we don’t really have the time when we keep scrolling and keep going in different directions and being distracted because very often when we scroll we’re waiting for something or we’re doing something else we are multitasking when we open an email we kind of just like sit down and we take a moment to think about it so how can you grow an email list from scratch and you know don’t get discouraged because it’s totally normal like we all started to grow our email list from scratch but if we put some effort and energy it will just start growing very fast in my opinion and it’s my recommendation all the social media efforts should lead to adding your potential clients to your email list what’s really important is potential clients it is so crucial that we build our email list with the right type of people like customers potential clients who will be interested in our offers in the future because if we grow our list with people who are not really interested in what we have to sell then we will have launches that fail and how can we make sure that we are building our email list with the right audience by offering a freebie that’s directly related to our offer or to our future offer if you don’t have an offer right now it is the right time to build your list don’t wait for your offer to be ready to build a list because then you will have nobody to buy your new offer it is important to start building your list as soon as possible so when i say a freebie it just means a quick win a download quick tips that are related to our offer or to our future offer it is important that there is this relation because people who download the freebie will be very likely interested in our offer it is important to spend a lot of time on creating your freebie not much time on actually creating but thinking what type of freebie will resonate and coming up with the right hook because you only have like a few sentences on the landing page so what is the quick win that your potential audience wants now why is it so important it’s free right why would we even put so much effort well because it’s the first link of our chain so that’s where it all starts once we have signups to our freebie then we have subscribers then we have future fans and buyers so that first link has to be very strong and it comes with a strong freebie how should you be building the list where should you be sharing the freebie everywhere i am serious yeah include it in your instagram bio included in your linkedin bio as well and have call to actions in your video speaking of which if you’d like my freebie which is 30 topics to inspire your social media content click on the link below and check it out check out my freebie it converts really well so i just said converts really well let me just explain the percentage of people who click on the freebie and those who sign up is pretty high and it is very important because let’s say we have conversion percent of 25 which is low that means that only every fourth person who will stumble upon the freebie will sign up now if it’s 50 that’s going to be every other person so our list will be growing that much faster so it is important to have a strong freebie it is important to create something that your future audience wants i hope i convinced you how important it is to start building your email list

So I’ve been a location independent entrepreneur for years, and let me tell you, the single most important asset for my business is my email list.

It is way more valuable than having a bunch of followers, subscribers, having your email list, a devoted list of people who pay attention is gold. So this is the difference I noticed between the followers and the email list subscribers.

The followers may just keep scrolling and the email subscribers, they just land, they pay more attention, they have different behaviors. When we keep scrolling, it’s not that often that we can buy a $500 course, a $1,000 course.

Meanwhile, when we get emails, that’s when we take action more often, because we just have more time, we’re like landing a plane, the plane has landed. We have time to have a look and evaluate if it is for us.

And how can we make sure that we are building our email list with the right audience? By offering a freebie that’s directly related to our offer or to our future offer. If you don’t have an offer right now, it is the right time to build your list.

Don’t wait for your offer to be ready to build a list, because then, you will have nobody to buy your new offer. It is important to start building your list as soon as possible. So when I say a freebie, it just means a quick win, a download, quick tips that are related to our offer or to our future offer.

Not much time on actually creating but thinking what type of freebie will resonate and coming up with the right hook, because you only have like a few sentences on the landing page.

So what is the quick win that your potential audience wants? Now, why is it so important? It’s free, right? Why would we even put so much effort? Well, because it’s the first link of our chain.

So that’s where it all starts. Once we have signups to our freebie, then we have subscribers, then we have future fans and buyers. So that first link has to be very strong and it comes with a strong freebie.

How should you be building the list? Where should you be sharing the freebie? Everywhere, I am serious. Yeah, include it in your Instagram bio, include it in your LinkedIn bio as well, and have call to actions in your video.
