They will come…
I love this movie quote. It’s become synonymous in business with deciding to do something in faith, and knowing it will work. Faith is everything when doing something new in business!
But here’s the thing; you also have to do the work!
So now you’ve got your lead magnet in place. Your nurturing welcome sequence is all set up and ready to go, and you are ready to start collecting hundreds of emails. So where do you get them?
The easy answer? Ask! Everyone you talk to, ask them. Having a coffee chat? Ask them if they’d like to join your newsletter list. Connecting on Facebook or LinkedIn? If your freebie is relevant to the conversation, ask them if they would like it, and to join your list!
The next step is to post it everywhere. And I mean EVERYWHERE.
That link on your Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram profiles? Make it the landing page for your lead magnet sign-up form. Post it on every page of your website. You can even put it as part of your email signature.
You can also do a run of targeted Facebook ads, share it during in-person events, and don’t forget to mention it when you are guesting on a podcast or during speaking engagements. Be sure the host puts a link in the show notes.
Another super cool thing you can do is get a QR code. You can then save it on your phone, and if you are out and about, you can just flash it and people can sign up on the spot! Technology, am I right?!
Alright! You’re all set! Let’s get out there and build that list!
If you need any help or are just thinking, “Ugh; I just don’t have time…”, I got you! Book a free consultation with me, and we can chat about how I can help you create the entire roadmap for building your newsletter, whether you want me to do it for you, or just want extra guidance to do it yourself.
And If you haven’t seen “Field of Dreams”, you really should. It really doesn’t have anything to do with natural success, but it has everything to do with believing in yourself when others don’t.
