How did I get started in helping people build an email list so they can launch a course or membership online?

During my VA days, I would go to a ton of networking events and meet all kinds of people who were interested in starting their own online businesses but kept running into something that was holding them back.

For many people, that “thing” was tech-based. Over and over again I kept hearing questions like:

  • What’s a landing page?
  • How do I build an email list?
  • Why do I even need an email list?

After so many times of hearing these questions, I realized that there was a need for someone to come in and help business owners get over those stumbling blocks to make their dreams come true, and thankfully, I was someone who could do just that for them.

So, why do we need to build an email list? Why isn’t a huge social media following enough?

An email list is the place where you can personally connect with your clients in a reliable and personable way.

Social media is an incredible tool for connecting with people, but if something changes or a platform goes away (remember Periscope or MySpace?), then you lose those followers and connections and have no way to get in touch with them.
