List Building

Get your email subscriber’s tails wagging

I’ve noticed something funny when I’ve been playing with Elvis lately.

Like any dog he enjoys his toys.

But…

Unlike the dogs that come to mind – my Yorkshire Terrorist has a bit of an attitude problem.

If I throw the toy to a part of the yard he doesn’t like he just looks at me like “you get it”.

Attitude problems.

Any who,

I’ve found a quick way to avoid this little attitude problem that translates directly into landing quality email subscribers:

Instead of just throwing the toy for him to “fetch”

I get him wild up by waving the toy around

getting him to bite at it while pulling it away

and play with his patience.

Then I throw.

The result:

He runs at it like a gazelle hunting zebra in the wild.

Should you “toy” with potential subscribers and customers?

Not necessarily.

But

If you care deeply about your market’s issues and they are hesitant to take action

then consider what you can do to make sure they’re excited about your emails and offers by creating scarcity, urgency, and limited offerings.

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”…

My friend Navid and I recently sat down to talk about something that’s little discussed in the online business space:

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.

Take your first sip here.

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.

It’s Google’s ball. They’ll do what they want.

I recently heard that Google’s tweaking YouTube and making MAJOR changes to it’s business model

and that this change will impact the way some of the most popular YouTubers will make money.

From the looks of it many will be SOL.

(that’s IF they’re talking about anything political, controversial, or that Google and it’s partners simply doesn’t want to fund)

But that’s Google’s right.

It’s their ball.

They can take it go home with it.

Well

if you don’t have control over your main source of income

then you just aren’t in control.

^^that’s a scary place to be.

Moving on…

If you’ve been building an email list for any length of time

then you know it’s not the size that matters

but how responsive your email subscribers are.

One of the surest ways to a responsive email list is simply doing everything in your power to make sure your email makes it to the inbox.

Because if your email subscribers can’t see it or read it – do you (and your content, offers, and ideas) exist?

And –

with google’s own filters acting like a constant moving target

– how do you keep up and make sure you’re able to reach your audience?

This month’s Email Elite Exclusive Training contains more than five things that you can immediately do to increase the quality of your list and it’s responsiveness…

… before you’re done watching it.

But,

in the face of Google’s antics

my training can sometimes be political (or anti)

and somewhat controversial in my examples and thought processes.

What I teach isn’t what you’re used to getting in those courses that you pay $499 or $997 for

(but never finish or get actual results from)

and goes a mile-deep on singular topics to build your email list with quality subscribers who actually buy your stuff.

See ya in the depths.

It’s not JUST about email lists & mula

This entrepreneur lifestyle can be lonely.

We (mostly) start off at a jay-oh-bee of sorts.

Then the questioning begins if “I’m doing the right thing?”

You find a book like “The 4-Hour Workweek” or “Crush It!”

and realize we can make a living on your own doing something that you love…

Fast-forward a year or two and you’re working from home

or maybe even from a remote location as you travel the world…

Then you loop back to some form of “Am I doing the right thing right now?”

As I’m plowing through “On The Shortness of Life”,

I stumbled across this gem that every online entrepreneur should embody:
