The savvy Jen Wise shared this post with our writers group this morning--about a smart way to build your email subscriber list--and I think it's so useful that I asked her permission to share it with you!
"This is a new resource I'm giving away--I wanted to share because there's always a lot of discussion about building engagement and followers and email lists.
"The easiest way for me to build my email list has always been by creating free resources/devotionals/journals. I never charge for them, because the email list is way more valuable than the small amount of money I cold make on each journal. So, I throw them all into a resource library which requires an email address to enter.
Each time I create a new resource it is with the expressed purpose of gaining new email subscribers, and also retaining the ones I have. (And, of course, I just enjoy creating them.) It's worked really well for me. These are the posts I push the absolute hardest on social media and will always pony up the money to promote.
Sharing this, as some of you are trying to build email lists, and this has been absolutely essential for me in the process--and the most effective."
It's possible that this approach isn't one that has your name on it, but I love that it's working for Jen!
