Email marketing is often one of the most underrated & underutilized tools in our marketing repertoire! It is a powerful way for us to build our business long term. Not only does it allow us to build a deeper connection with our clients, by creating familiarity but it will significantly increase your revenue, when used properly!
If you have an email list, awesome! If not no worries, its never too late, start collecting today! So even if you are not ready to start sending emails, just collect client addresses!
You have probably heard the phrase;
“Your list is KING.”
Now if your list is King, then your email content is Queen!
I know what you might be thinking, what is the big deal about emails, isn’t social media enough?

Let me share 4 crucial reasons you might want to START at least compiling this LIST, trust me you will thank me later ????
- I love social media and all that we can do with it, yes, its free, BUT, and there is a big but…. we do NOT own these platforms.So often we hear of people’s accounts disappearing, they end up in FB jail, or they get hacked. These platforms are what I often refer to as RENTAL properties & we need to have our own back up plan to ensure we do not get thrown to the curb if and when something happens to our SM accounts. What If they decide to shut down the platform, case in point, They start to charge you serious coin to use their platform. You do not have to place ads, but it has certainly become more a pay to play model & will likely lean more in that direction as the future.
- The FB/IG Algorithms & rules are forever changing & its hard to keep up with them. I encourage you to optimize these free platforms, but very few people see your feeds, even if you post daily. Consistency is key to FB/IG land but even then, its an uphill battle.
You must remember that it takes multiple ingredients to create a perfect “Marketing recipe” & when one is missing, the outcome is just not the same. That is how you need to look at your marketing; SM, Email, FB lives, personal connections, referrals & networking are all the ingredients in your recipe to success!
- Email marketing will also help to deepen your client relationship & allows you to showcase your expertise and authority.
- When done properly, conversions are significantly higher with email marketing. Take this as an example, if you only had 50 clients on your email list and you sent an offer for a $99 & only 10% of your list took advantage of it, you would have generated almost $500!! Is that not worth sending emails consistently for?Email marketing is a numbers game, now imagine if your list grew to 100 & the same 10% took advantage of the same offer that would be $1000!! Are you excited? You should be!Now even before they get to your content, your subject lines are critical & are like a “movie trailer” How are you intriguing them to open your email?
