Creating and nurturing a email list is the easiest way to communicate with your tribe. You can continuing add value and earn the trust of your tribe by emailing them often.
Start Building an Email List
Step 1 Sign up for an autoresponder/newsletter account with AWeber* or MailChimp*. I prefer to use Aweber, but there is a small monthly fee associated with them. MailChimp is a free option for small lists when you are getting started, but you will want to move once you have enough people.
Step 2 Create a sign-up form for your email list. AWeber or MailChimp, both have awesome videos to help you get started.
Step 3 Put your sign-up form on your blog. This is very easy to do with a blog, simple copy and paste of the form.
Step 4 Offer a free giveaway for people who subscribe to your list. I HIGHLY recommend that you offer a download to add extreme value for your tribe, this can be an ebook, an ecourse, a worksheet, an audio, or a short video.
Don’t wait to start your email list! Take ONE step at a time, don’t worry and don’t rush.
