Building Your E-Mail List

life hacking Mar 14, 2024

One of the first steps in starting an online business is to build an e-mail list of prospective customers that you can serve.

Perhaps the best way to build this list is to create a lead magnet that you give out for free in exchange for an e-mail address.

A lead magnet could be:

  • A PDF Guide
  • An eBook
  • A short course

Or anything you can give away for free that helps your audience accomplish some goal.

For me, I offer 3 free PDF guides on the following topics:

  1. Make $1,200 Quickly Guide
  1. Free Hawaii Trip Guide
  1. Earn Extra $10k Guide

These cater to my audience of pastors, missionaries and Christian leaders wanting to earn extra income in their spare time.

Another way to capture e-mail addresses is by starting a newsletter to offer weekly valuable content to your subscribers.

Once you have your lead magnet and/or a newsletter, you can start encouraging people to grab one of your guides or subscribe to your weekly newsletter.

This will begin to build your e-mail list. And there’s nothing more valuable in your business than your e-mail list.

If you’re considering starting an online business, start here. Create some valuable content and give it away free in exchange for e-mail addresses.

Then add value every week to those e-mail addresses and offer an opportunity to purchase something from you quarterly.

Most won’t purchase from you, but if even 1% of your list buys from you each time, you can build a very profitable online business.

All of you have some kind of skill you could teach online. Have you considered turning it into a business?
