“If I could go back and change one thing about my writing career, it would be this: I would have started an email list from day one. You should do the same. And this book is the perfect guide to help you.”
– Jeff Goins, bestselling author of Real Artists Don’t Starve
Raise your hand if you’re frustrated with how fast your online audience is growing.
You’ve created a website and published blog posts, but you struggle to get traffic and turn visitors into loyal readers. You’ve shared your articles on social media, but it only brings two or three new email subscribers.
Because you don’t have a big audience to help you promote your work, you’re stuck paying for expensive book promotions, but you barely make back the money you’ve invested.
Or maybe you’re completely overwhelmed and don’t even know how to get started.
Honestly, you hate marketing yourself. You wish your audience would magically come to you so you could focus on what you’re truly passionate about: writing more books and stories and articles.
There’s only one problem.
If you don’t figure out how to grow your email list, you won’t have an audience to sell your books and services to. As a writer, you deserve to make a living from your art. You’re losing money every day that you don’t solve this problem.
Worst of all, there are thousands of people who you could have touched and inspired and helped with your words who will never hear from you.
How I Finally Found My Audience Online (and How You Can Too)
Hi, I’m Nicole Bianchi. I know firsthand how frustrating building an online audience can be. Only a few years ago, I was in the same place as you.
It was 2016, and I had decided to start a blog. At the time, I was running a tutoring business as well as working as a freelance web designer. But I knew something was missing from my life. Ever since I was young, I had wanted to be a writer. With a successful blog, I hoped I’d be able to forge a new career path.
Over the years, I’d had many different blogs and websites, but I’d always end up abandoning them after struggling to build an audience. This time I vowed it would be different. I kept reading article after article by successful writers and bloggers about the importance of having an email list if you wanted to build a relationship with your readers. With at least 1,000 email subscribers, you’d have a loyal fanbase and be able to turn your blog into a profitable business.
So I tried to do everything “right” in order to achieve that goal. I invested in a beautiful website theme. I spent days crafting blog posts. I connected with influencers. I poured my energy into growing an Instagram following of over 1,000 followers and promoting my writing on other social media sites. And, yet, only a handful of my social media followers would read my blog posts and even less subscribed to my email list.
No matter how hard I tried promoting my writing online, my email list grew at a snail’s pace.
To say it was discouraging is an understatement. I felt like giving up, but I’d invested so much time already in my blog. I didn’t want to let my writing continue to languish unread. I didn’t want to abandon my writing dreams. Just think of all the readers whose lives I could be impacting.
So I began researching email list building strategies, went to marketing conferences, and consulted with some of the top innovators in the marketing field. Then I started implementing what I’d learned.
In November of 2016, my email list finally began to grow. By November of 2017, it had grown from 200 to over 2,000 subscribers (in just 12 months!).
Now when I publish a blog post, I send out an email, and within minutes, hundreds of people have read it. Often I get more email replies than I get comments on my blog. My writing is finally gaining traction and has been published in big publications like The Muse. I’ve begun making money from my blog, have been offered writing jobs, and my website was voted one of the top 100 websites for writers by The Write Life (thanks in part to a flurry of nominations from my loyal readers).
I’m not sharing my story to brag. I’m sharing it to show you what’s possible. If I could do it, you can too.
It didn’t take me years to get these results. And it had nothing to do with luck. I used strategies that anyone can use, even if you’re starting with an audience of zero and have no marketing or technical expertise at all.
Now, it certainly wasn’t easy to get to this point. I had to figure out which email strategies were the most effective, which ones worked best for writers, and which ones would attract subscribers who would actually be excited to read what I was writing (no sleazy marketing tactics allowed).
That’s why I created this book for you. It’s the book I wish I’d had when I was first getting started. I wanted to save you all the time I spent experimenting so you don’t end up wasting valuable time on things that don’t work.
This book is a compilation of everything I’ve learned after hours of research and attending seminars and coaching worth thousands of dollars. Online marketers charge hundreds of dollars for courses based on this content. I’ve put it all together for you in one easy to follow, affordable guide.
Introducing How to Grow Your Email List: A Step-by-Step Guide for Writers, the complete guide that distills the most powerful list building strategies so you can promote your work effectively and find your audience online.
Here are several ways an email list can change your life as a writer:
Transform Readers into Loyal Fans
Since email feels more like a private conversation, it’s the best way to build relationships with your readers. Social media feeds are cluttered with hundreds of updates so your readers might miss yours. With an email list, you don’t have to pay to get your message in front of readers or worry about changing algorithms on social media sites.
Make Money & Sell More Books
If you ever want to promote a book or sell another product or service (like copywriting or editing services), emails have far higher conversion rates than promotional posts on social media or announcements published on your website.
Get a Book Deal & Effectively Market Your Work
Many book publishers will want to know how big your email list is before they give you a book deal. Often, they’ll give you a bigger advance the bigger your email list is. If you’re self-publishing, an email list is the most effective way to market your book and organize a book launch team. No more wasting money on expensive book promotions.
You won’t be alone on this journey. I’m going to hold your hand every step of the way and walk you through this process. I’ve designed this book like a mini-course with each chapter laid out as an easy to follow lesson with an ‘action step’ at the end.
The book begins with a getting started section that helps you pick the best email service provider and set up a website for your writing. Next, I share eight powerful email list building strategies that will show you:
- How to quickly get your very first subscribers when you’re starting from zero
- How to develop a successful marketing plan and brand strategy so you’re attracting the right subscribers to your email list
- How to transform your website and blog posts into list building machines
- How to effectively use social media to grow your email list (and not waste your time)
- How to land guest posts on popular websites that your target audience visits
- How to optimize those guest posts so that they bring you subscribers
- And much more!
The chapters include pre-written templates that show you the exact marketing language to use so you won’t have to spend time second-guessing your copy and can implement the strategies even faster.
Finally, I’ve put together a bonus chapter where you’ll discover best practices for emailing your list. This chapter includes topics like what to send to subscribers, how to write subject lines that will make them eager to open your emails, and how to prevent people from unsubscribing. No more worrying about how you will nurture subscribers into loyal readers!
You’ll also get access to my private Facebook group where you can ask and get answers to any questions you might have.
- Will these email strategies work for fiction authors?
Yes, in the book I show how these strategies can be used by both fiction and nonfiction authors as well as bloggers.
- I’m brand new to building an email list, and I’m definitely not tech savvy. Will this book help me?
Yes! Each chapter of the book builds on the next, starting with strategies for complete beginners and gradually introducing more advanced strategies. I explain the email marketing terms in simple, non-technical language.
- Will I have to buy lots of expensive products to implement these strategies?
No, you’ll only need an email service provider and (for some of the strategies) a website. There’s a chapter about how to set these up. Throughout the book, I might recommend other products, but I always try to include free alternatives.
- Does the book also discuss what to email subscribers, how often, how to prevent unsubscribes, etc.?
Yes! There’s a bonus chapter on how to write emails, craft subject lines, and best practices for emailing your list.
- What if I have a question while I’m working through the book? Is there any way to get help?
Yes, you can jump into the private Facebook community to get answers to your questions or send me an email.
You can either continue down the path you have already been traveling, or you can choose a new path. The path you’re following now will probably result in you getting the same outcomes you’ve always received. But if you want something different to happen, if you want to reach more readers with your words and build a loyal audience, you’re going to have to do something different.
