I do not have an email list.
I have a lot of emails! I know people!
But I am coming to realize that this is something I should have started doing a lot sooner in my career as an entrepreneur and a writer.
I don’t have MailChimp or clickfunnels or a subscriber list.
And I honestly am not sure how to use them.
I don’t know how to get people to sign up for a list and then am not sure what to send them.
I get accidentally signed up for newsletters all the time and I either unsubscribe or delete. It never even occurred to me that I should be sending those to other people.
What do they care about my life?
But now I am coming up on releasing my first book and lack a way to tell people who have said “hey, let me know when you write a book!”
It’s frustrating because I definitely feel like I am behind on something I hadn’t even been thinking about. And even moreso because I’m not certain where to start. So far, I’ve asked my friends and family for their emails and put them in a spreadsheet.
Then I went through my invoice spreadsheet and emails and added the emails of previous and current clients and prospects.
That’s it. That’s all I have. And now that I have email addresses in one location, I’m not certain what my next step here is!
