    #316: How To Grow Your Email List Using Social Media

    21/05/2020 Duration: 41min

    After 11 years of building a successful online business, there is one area I see entrepreneurs go wrong time and time again. Want to know what it is? They put all their effort into growing their social media following without properly using it to grow their email list. In my experience, that’s a big no, no. So, why would that be a big mistake? Well, here are a couple of stats I want to share with you. Your return on investment with an email list is 4x higher than any other marketing platform. In fact, the average ROI is 122%. For every one dollar spent on email marketing, you could make between forty-five to fifty-one dollars. You do not, and I repeat, do not own your social media followers. You do, however, own your email list. This means that a social media platform can take your followers away at any point, or dictate who does and does not see your content. Do I have your attention yet? I’m not saying you should ditch social media. Instead, I’m giving you simple, effective strategies for utilizing your s

    Can I let you in on a little secret? If you become a decisive entrepreneur early on in your journey, it’s going to serve you in the long run. How do I know? Because I’ve been in the game for twelve years now, and I’d say that’s long enough to feel like I’ve made enough decisions to last me a lifetime. I have a question for you, do you consider yourself to be a decisive person? If you answered “no,” that’s totally fine. To be honest, I’ve always been a pretty decisive person (just like my mom!). But being an entrepreneur has helped me to take a step back and to examine my process for making educated decisions with confidence. My hope for you is that whether you’re decisive or not, you take my simple and effective 4-step decision-making process, and you use it to make big, bold decisions that will best serve you, your business, and your audience.

    I almost said “no” to one of the biggest opportunities I’ve ever had, and it would have cost me playing a bigger game as I had committed to. If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that in 2019 I committed to playing a bigger game, and yet here I was, in 2019, contemplating shooting down an opportunity that allowed me to do just that.

    I’ve been hearing a lot of questions from online entrepreneurs lately due to our current crisis. Questions like... Should I sell? Should I deeply discount my products and offers? Or, should I give my stuff away for free? And I get it! We’re in a time of uncertainty… especially for entrepreneurs. However, I full-heartedly believe it when I say, “yes,” you should absolutely be selling. And “no,” you should not discount or give your products away for free. The world and the economy need you and your business more than ever. That’s why in this episode, I’m not only going to tell you why you should be selling right now but also 5 powerful ways to find the courage to do so. I’ll even go as far as to say that you have a civic duty to sell and to show up online during this pandemic, as long as you show up with something of value that can serve others (which my guess is that you do!).

    I’m not going to beat around the bush, we are living in a crazy time, and things are moving fast. As an entrepreneur, especially an online entrepreneur, you need to be moving quickly as well. I’ve been in awe of my students as I watch them step up, shift, and serve their audience in valuable ways during this time of crisis. In this episode, I share five ways that my students have pivoted their business in light of the economy and uncertainty. I feel that now, more than ever, showing up with something of high-value that will serve your audience is the very best thing that you can do. In this episode, I’ll use these stories to debunk three beliefs that have been floating around… Nobody is buying anything right now. It’s inconsiderate to launch or sell something right now -- people will think I’m capitalizing on the crisis. If you don’t have an online business or if you haven’t quite launched your business yet -- now is not the time. These couldn’t be farther from the truth, and you’ll see that in the stories
