Are You Wasting your Blog's Most Precious Resource?
Don't miss out on the easiest, fastest and most under-rated way to grow your blogging business.I've seen it happen too many times to mention.
Over the years I've found great blogs, fascinating people, and amazing content. But far, far too many were missing out on easy wins to help make a little extra money for their families, promote their businesses or grow their cause. Simply because they were neglecting their email lists.
Thanks to plugins, widgets and social media technology, tens of thousands - maybe hundreds of thousands - of bloggers, just like you, have become accidental email marketers. While obsessing about SEO, poring over Google Analytics, agonizing over what to write next, email subscriptions have become a casual "put the form over there" checkbox item and then forgotten.
Which is a shame. Your email subscribers are, in fact, your greatest fans and probably your most under-valued resource. By not paying attention to them - by staying an accidental email marketer - you're missing out on increased page views, increased revenues and increased engagement.
The problem is that the tools that make it easy for us to blog - themes, plugins and templates - simply make it all too easy to neglect this vital opportunity.
Been there, done that.I know - you don't have the time. You're not an email expert. Yet the blogging superstars we all follow have lists numbering in the tens and hundreds of thousands. What's their secret?
Wouldn't you like to know?

"A comprehensive guide that enables bloggers to reach their readers and clients through effective and strategic email marketing. Phil helps you understand the importance of email marketing, and then leads you through the practical steps necessary to make the most of your email newsletters."
~ Erin Chase, Author and Founder
Isn't Email Dead in the Age of Social Media?Not at all! Email subscribers are the most committed you have - look at what they have to do to sign up! Dual opt-in. Squiggly puzzles to prove they're human. There's nothing casual about it.
True, many people follow hundreds of "friends" on Facebook, Twitter accounts. Yet all those teeny-weeny, unbranded, untracked, undifferentiated, easy to miss messages simply fly by.
So, compare and contrast. Your email to a subscriber is in their inbox, by invitation. Fully branded. Content rich. Tracked. Customized. Personalized. A Tweet? A Like? Not so much.
They've committed to you. Why not return the favor? List Building for Bloggers makes it easy as well as worthwhile.
"Phil Hollows takes the geek-only out of marketing your blog and makes it possible, and surprisingly easy, for anyone to get and keep an audience for their online content. Comprehensive and written in everyday language, this is a must-read how-to for any blogger."
~ Mark David Gerson, screenwriter and award-winning author of The MoonQuest: A True Fantasy
