Piss-poor list-building advice enclosed

A question often asked (but rarely answered truthfully):

“When should I focus on list-building?”

Ask any guru and you’ll hear their hands shake at their keyboard while slamming something like “yesterday!”.

But that’s just piss-poor advice amigo.

The first part of list-building isn’t any of the following:

  • Setting up your email service provider
  • Installing pop-ups on your site
  • Telling your homies you’re gonna start a list

All of those things only delay you getting closer to the green stuff.

(at this point, know that I’m trying to help you make money – ultimately – while helping more people)

So while I just may have taken all of the fun out of building a list that the gurus are preaching…

And the answer I’m about to lay flat-out on you isn’t as fun…

Here’s the truth:

Awareness is the first step.

Too many people go goo-goo over “passive income” and course-creation only to die a slow, cold, internet death… Leaving them skeptical that any of this stuff even works and hating their internet idols.

That’s why you need to take a look in the mirror and ask things like:

  • Why am I doing this?
  • How much money do I plan on making?
  • Do I need money RIGHT NOW?

Based on your answer, THEN you move on to do one of two things:

  1. Make a “Reverse Email List” with people you could offer a service to (to start making money now)
  2. Start building a “regular” email list to start talking to daily

So there.

Countless years shaved off your journey.
