List Building for Bloggers - The Story So Far

Thursday, January 06, 2011

As the first post in the List Building for Bloggers series in 2011 I thought I'd take a moment to step back and review the series to date.  In case you missed them, here they are in order (click the title to view the original article):
  1. Why Aren't Email Lists Extinct in the Age of Social Media?
  2. Lists, Email Marketing and your Blog
  3. Five Key Steps to Grow Your Mailing List
  4. Growing Your List: Accelerating Subscriber Growth
  5. Growing Your List: Improving Engagement
  6. Are You Getting to the Inbox and Avoiding the Spam Trap?
  7. Mailing List Underperforming? Optimize it with these Tips!
  8. Autoresponders: What, Why and How
If you want to look at it another way, you can think of these posts answering the following questions:
  • Why bother?
  • What are the basics?
  • How can I improve quickly?
  • How do I get more subscribers?
  • How can I build engagement?
  • How do I avoid the junk folder?
  • What should I do differently?
  • How can I build automatic sales?
If you've taken the time to read all of these then you should have a pretty good idea of how to make your email marketing work harder for you. The trick, of course, is to put the advice into practice so check out the action items in each article in case you missed anything.

Talking of action items, I'm going to suggest that you make this your sole email marketing and list building action item for this week: Commit to reviewing ONE article and putting it completely, 100%, TOTALLY into practice within the next seven days. OK? Just one - I don't want you burning out or anything!

Next week? Back to our regularly scheduled emailing and social media integration goodness.
