For years, I have been trying to build an email list. I have tried so many different tactics and techniques that I have attempted to use and implement. Most of the time, I have had little success.
I have tried…
- using Sumo.com pop ups
- trying to pitch my website as a weekly newsletter
- giving away free ebooks or some kind of bait
- asking nicely
- basically begging and pleading
None of these tactics worked the way I wanted them too (especially not the last one). Finally, I tried a new approach.
I built an online academy that gives away free courses and lesson plans in all different ranges of skill sets and verticals.
It has completely changed the game for me. Listen to the episode to find out how I did it and learn how you can do the same!
Sumo – a great third party application that has user friendly marketing tools and pop ups.
Teachable – build your own online course platform or school.
