Or, how I added 301 people to my list last week.
I just did a survey of my subscribers.
(If you didn’t take it, please do so here and then come back, because it’s a way for me to know what’s important to you. And you can ask questions and I might answer them in a blog post. I’ve already done that twice.)
In the survey I ask what’s important to you. Here are some of the results so far:
- Grow my subscriber & social media lists: 70% say this is Very Important, the highest percentage of any of the options
- Learn how to hold events (such as webinars): 46% say this is Very Important
- Learn how to partner with others: 28% say this is Very Important,, the lowest percentage of any of the options
What’s wrong here?
What’s wrong is that events and partnerships are the best way to grow your list. So if you think that growing your list is important, then you should think that events and partnerships are just as important.
And if you don’t, that’s probably why you’re probably trying to do it all wrong.
It’s possible that the people who think list building is so important already know how to hold events and partner with others, my guess is that they just don’t realize how important those activities are.
