You get it. You’ve heard list building is important because it will help grow your connection with your readers, boost your visibility and reach, and help to grow your book sales.
But what do you do when you KNOW you need an email list, but you just CAN’T figure out how to get subscribers?
Well, I’ve created a video to solve this problem, outlining actionable ways to grow your email list, fast – and without spinning your wheels.
I outline a simple list building formula, and break down each component to show you that it’s not just list growth, but list performance that is the key to powerful tribe building.
Only by creating an experience for your audience and fans that consistently meets or exceeds their expectations, can you establish the foundation for an impassioned and supportive community to develop around your work.
