5 Simple Ways to Grow an Engaging Email List for your Business 

Your email list is one of your business’s most valuable assetsGrowing an email list is still one of the best ways to market your business online.

Do you believe that? You have probably heard the phrase “the money’s in the list” meaning that your email list is one of your business’s most valuable assets. This is true for all types of businesses, whether you have a physical location and meet with people in person, or your coaching business is 100% virtual and online. Whether you offer in-person or online services, and whether you offer online courses or not.

Your email list will only be an asset if you are taking the time to grow a list full of subscribers (aka potential leads) who are eager to learn from you, who are engaged and who are willing to buy your products or services.

Now, how do we do this? How do we, firstly, get people onto our email list and then turn them into engaged subscribers who become potential leads for our business?

Take a look at these 5 simple ways to build a growing email list that can work for you and your business.

3 Reasons Why Every Course Creator Needs an Email List 

Are you making the same mistake?

I recently came across a post in a Facebook group for course creators, where the person was expressing their frustrations with a failed launch of two new courses they’d just created. They had spent months creating these two courses and then used Facebook Ads to promote the courses.

And the results? Nada! Not a single sign-up for the courses or even for their free eBook. You could sense their frustration as they finished the post with, “All the hype about making lots of money with online courses may just be that. Hype.”

Growing an email list is one of the key marketing foundations for any successful online business.Do you know what might have contributed to a failed “launch” of their courses? (I put launch in quotations because I don’t think they did a true launch.) They failed to grow and nurture an audience!

Don’t make the same mistake of putting the cart before the horse. I truly believe that if you have any type of online presence, you need to invest time and energy into building a community. And not just through social media. You also need to invest in growing and building an email list.

Check out the top 3 reasons why course creators and coaches should prioritize growing an email list and how it can be a huge benefit to the success of your business.
