How Do Email Funnels Benefit You?
One of my long-term online colleagues, Cindy Bidar, has created a very helpful Quickstart Guide to Creating Email Funnels. If one of your ways to market includes adding new subscribers to your email list, I recommend you take a look at her Quickstart Guide. It will help you organize your email lead generation, build your list, and keep in touch with your new subscribers.
Cindy is featured in Episode Two of my The Desired Life series, where I interview entrepreneurs who fully support themselves with their business. We talked about the leaps of faith it takes to step away from a full time paid position and go out on your own. You can see The Desired Life episode on my You Tube Channel.
When we are creating email funnels it does take experimenting and a leap of faith. We are saying to people who do not know us, “Here’s something that can help you.” We’re asking them to take a leap of faith and give us their contact information in exchange for our expertise. This is how we build a list of people who might do business with us in the future – our list of prospects.
Cindy has been fully supporting herself in her business since 2009, so like me, she’s got years of experience behind her. She used that experience as she designed her Quickstart Guide to Creating Email Funnels. Just like every entrepreneur, Cindy had to take a big leap and trust that she would get clients – enough of them to replace her income at her job. That meant having to conquer the fear that she would put herself out there and fail.
Creating Email Funnels Gives You Qualified Prospects
Why did Cindy create her Quickstart Guide, and how can it help you? Cindy and I both strongly agree that every business owner benefits from building a list of subscribers – a mailing list. As Cindy says, “It’s the most important asset you can have in your business.” You own and control this list. You do not own or control the followers you have on social media – and access to them is getting harder. Cindy points out that as business owners, it’s our job to keep new prospects coming in the door. “Don’t depend on someone else’s platform to grow your business,” Cindy advises. I agree!
Cindy realized that business owners get excited about building an email list, but sometimes don’t know what to do with those subscribers. She also knows from her own experience that some of the people on one’s list might not ever buy – they aren’t good matches for you. So her Quickstart Guide shows you how to:
- Better leverage the email list you are building by creating better opt in offers
- Creating offers that appeal to your ideal audience
- Creating good follow ups that not only serve that audience but bring money in as well.
The Quickstart Guide to Creating Email Funnels complements my own email list building course, List Building for Impact. Between these two courses, you get a solid background and step by step “how-to” for using emails to gain potential customers, and how to keep and nurture them, too.
If you use Cindy’s Quickstart Guide, you’ll know:
- How your landing page and thank you page work together
- What to do when you get a new subscriber to your list
- How to follow up with new subscribers
- How to automate things so that you don’t have to be hands on all the time
Bottom line, you’ll benefit from having a very clear picture of how to get prospects, get to know them, and sell your offer to them. You’ll know how to set up email that matches your ultimate goal. It’s like following a map from point A to point B. If you aren’t sure about creating email funnels, you’ll know that after using this Quickstart Guide.
