The truth with your list is not the size as much as it is the quality of your list.
I made my very first $10,000 from a list of about 300 people.
It wasn’t a big list at all, but I was extremely engaged with them. I shared ahh-mazing value with them AND I did it consistently.
I had a pretty busy life back then so I could only email once a week, but I did each and every week. I made that ONE email COUNT!
My list knew me, they liked me and they trusted me.
This was when I realized that I didn’t needs thousands of people on my list to make money.
I had a client come to me last year who had over 11,000 people on her list and wasn’t making even $5,000 a month!
She was so frustrated and burnt out!
When I asked her what her relationship was with her list, she said she emails them a few times a month asking them to work with her.
She wasn’t engaging with them, she wasn’t sharing any value with them and didn’t share anything about her experiences with them.
She basically through some people on her list and slammed them with random promo emails.
THIS does not work!
Don’t get me wrong here, you MUST be growing your list each and every single day if you want to LEVERAGE and SCALE…
but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until then to make money!
You CAN make money with the list you have RIGHT NOW…
I grow my list every single day – without fail!
Here are some things I do every day to make sure I am growing my list WHILE giving value at the SAME TIME so I am sure to always see a profit coming from my list…
1. I do monthly – LIVE webinars (SO much fun!) quarterly at the least!
2. I give value in EVERY email – even if I am promoting something, I give value TOO
3. I network! I never compete with other experts – I COLLABORATE! This has grown my list by thousands of TARGETED people that I can build relationships with
4. I run Facebook ads to my webinars – I NEVER used to run Facebook ads. I built a list of 5000 people MANUALLY from Facebook groups ALONE! Now I run ads so I have more time to serve all my clients!
5. I just show up in my business every day and build relationships.
The key is to STOP selling and START serving.
The more you sell, the more you repel people. No one wants to be sold to, no more than you want to be that sleezy sales person.
Just share more value. Give more content. Be more visible. Ask more questions. Give more answers.
You are THE expert in what you do – give people what they’re asking from you through a webinar or Facebook live video or a training call or blog post.
However you like to create content – DO THAT! and do it MORE!
3 weeks ago I launched to my Facebook group a new training I had created and that training grew my list by 2900 people and my group by 550 people.
This is because I shared value that my peeps WANTED and I created a relationship. I didn’t have to ask anyone to buy from me. I simply emailed the list I created and they booked calls with me.
I had given them some of my best stuff and that turned into profits – without me having to do ANY selling.
When I do a webinar, I show up fully! I give so much value that people email me afterwards telling me that they got more value and strategies from my FREE webinar than they have in a year with their coach (whom their paying thousands to!)
