1 fish, 2 fish, 3 fish, more.

I live by a basic rule online – it’s this:

To grow an audience, go where they already are.

Example?…

You could spend all day at the lake fishing and not catch a single flounder…

Or,

you could wait for feeding time

(and feeding season)

hang out with some bait,

and be full all winter.

One approach might catch you some fish

and the other will have you running into issues of having too many fish.

Which problem do you want?

When you approach your list-building like this you’ll be able to quickly eliminate strategies that won’t yield lost of subscribers and focus on the ones that do.

One of the quickest ways you can build your list:

Re: Combating imposter syndrome

In response to last week’s email on the “imposter syndrome” from subscriber Rouge:

“Really really really timely email. Spent the last 4 weeks struggling to press send on an event I’m running with creative experts… Compared and undervalued myself way too much. Just sent out the invites and BAM already locked in our first speaker. Thanks for your honest emails.”

The good part is that they’re getting even more honest.

I’ve recently been playing around with more video…

… and let me tell you what kinda time commitment is involved there.

It makes me like email even more.

BUT

There’s nothing like talking to an empty room.

We’ll all have go through a stage like this at one time or another,

which is why I put such an emphasis on building your email list.

For instance,

I’m putting my vids on YouTube at a time where a lot of peeps aren’t happy with them.

Why?

Because they rely on YouTube to give them money from ads

and since YouTube can change the rules whenever they please

they’re left back to where they started.

Any who,

let’s be thankful that isn’t us.

Back to the “imposter syndrome”…

It’s how you use it (your email list)

Every morning I wake up to a routine of sorts…

After I freshen up and grab a protein bar I head to the coffee shop

I order my coffee

sit down

start writing in my journal

and then I enjoy the first sip.

It’s what I look forward to everyday I wake up.

It always starts me off in the right direction.

And it’s single-handedly the reason why I have a morning routine that sticks.

The equation is trigger + reward = habit formed.

When you look at your email list the question then becomes:

“What habit do I want my list to form?”

Is it links clicked?

Opens?

Replies?

Sales?

Whatever the case..

There’s a simple method you can implement when someone subscribes to your email list that causes them to not only look forward to your emails,

but to actually consume your free eBooks and buy your products.

… and it’s the type of thing that real marketers do when they care about their audience problem…

And it’s inside the next Email Elite Exclusive Training.

Valuable email list-building advice from a high school dropout

One of my idols from a young age was Rob Dyrdek.

If you aren’t familiar:

he’s a skateboarder who turned pro at 16,

dropped out of high school,

and went on to help create some of the biggest brands in skateboarding and produce some of the biggest TV shows of the last 10 years.

During an interview I was watching yesterday he revealed what he does to remain successful.

The key(s):

Systems & habits.

^^I pound this stuff in my own life and with my students and clients ad nauseum.

In fact…

If you’re following anyone

(or god forbid paying them)

and they aren’t teaching you long-term methods

(see: systems and methods)

for getting long-lasting results,

THEN SKATE THE OTHER WAY.

FAST.

This also applies directly to creating quality email list subscribers.

In fact,

I’m sharing something that I do EVERYDAY that transitions directly into creating long-term email list subscribers

(the kind that look forward to your emails and buy your offers)

in the September Email Elite Exclusive Training.

And,

it’s so simple that you’ll be able to implement in one weekend but feel the rewards for a lifetime to come.

:)
