When you first start out with your online business, growing a strong email list can be REALLY hard! Trust me I know! I took me a LONG time to get my email list to where it is today. But it doesn’t have to take you that long!

It’s not about the quantity, it’s about the quality.

I am sure you have heard that saying before. For example, it’s not about how many friends you have, but how genuine of a friend they are. Well that also pertains to your email list! Sure, having 10,000 email subscribers would be awesome, but how many of them will actually interact with your emails? How many of them will really want to purchase what you are selling?

See, they key to having a successful email list, is knowing how to capture the perfect subscriber. One who is actually interested in what you have to say. That person is going to take your advice, buy your products, recommend your services. Capturing that person is how you will make money with your email list!

So how do you do it? 

Incentives! What is an incentive? It’s something you give away for free, and in return you get someone’s information! Yes, having a pop up on your site asking for someone to subscribe to your email list may work, but 90% of the time they will X out of it.

So when it comes to incentives you really need to think about what your reader wants? What can you give them that will really benefit them? Maybe you are a health coach, you could give away a free 7 day meal plan. Or maybe you blog about motherhood, you could give away a list with tips to help you stay organized.

Or this post for example! I am giving you a FREE ConvertKit mini course AND 30 days of ConverKit for FREE! And that’s only for my students! ConverKit doesn’t offer that to just anyone!

What is ConvertKit? It’s a SUPER simple email marketing system for professionals! You can easily create opt-in forms that you can attach your incentive to. Then ConverKit does ALL the work for you! I am not tech savvy AT ALL. So when it comes to programs I like things to be really simple and to the point, and ConvertKit totally is!
