What is the size of your email list? I mean, how many people do you have on your email list? Is your email list:
- Teeny weeny?
- Non-existent? or
If you have a product to sell or an affiliate offer to promote, can you send an email to a targeted list of at least 2,500 engaged subscribers who love to read your emails?
Develop An Effective Strategy For List Building
If you’re not comfortable with any of those questions, then you need to smell the coffee and wake up to the idea that you need an effective strategy for building an email list.
I get it! When you’re just starting out as a blogger, monetizing a blog can be challenging. No, scratch that. As a new blogger, monetizing your blog is a lot of hard work. And it can be very overwhelming.
Where do you start? There are so many products, services and companies to promote, so many applications to make, so many forms to complete, and so many passwords to remember. And how do you keep a tab of them?
And can I be honest? Those income reports of bloggers who (against all the odds) somehow manage to make thousands of dollars in their first month blogging doesn’t help. Right ?
Let’s be real.
Although anyone can own a blog, blogging isn’t for everyone!
I’m sorry if that offends you 🙁
This is a lesson I learnt quite early in my blogging career. That’s right! Blogging can be a full time job.
There may be an estimated 152 million blogs worldwide with 1,896 blog posts published every minute or about 3.39 million blog posts published daily.
Still, blogging isn’t for everybody! And I will tell you why in a moment.
But first, what’s a blog. And who’s a blogger?
Let’s face it!
People don’t like sharing their personal information. And they certainly don’t like to part with their precious email addresses. Particularly if they don’t know who you are. So, when they get to your landing page, they’re naturally skeptical. Consequently, their guard is up. Even before they look at what you have to say.
The Real Reason People are not Signing up to Your List
Your prospects are probably already on a hundred and one email lists, and are getting bombarded daily with advertising messages. So the last thing they want is to get more junk in their email inbox from yet another company or individual trying to sell them stuff!
That’s why it’s so critical to understand the importance of creating a compelling offer.
You know what is incredibly frustrating? And terribly annoying?
Spending hours, sometimes days or in extreme cases weeks, creating the perfect email. Crafting, tweaking, designing, perfecting and turning it into a beautiful work of art.
You then click ‘send’ with aplomb!
Only to be brought down to earth, when you look at your stats…

On the average, five times as many people read the headlines as read the body copy. It follows that unless your headline sells your product, you have wasted 90 percent of your money.
