In my opinion, running a blog and creating content is not as difficult attempting to engage with your audience. There are a lot of factors that prevent you from having great engagement. From inconsistency of posts to not providing value to your readers, your blog can fail really fast. One of the best ways to foster a relationship with your reader (and what I’ve learned is one of the most important things to have) is through an email list.
So when I decided to write a book, I knew I wanted to give my faithful subscribers first dibs at purchasing a copy.
But getting people to subscribe correctly has been a challenge. What I thought were pretty clear instructions are obviously not as clear since several people and and a dozen or more haven’t completed the steps. That causes them to miss out on valuable information without them even realizing it.
Because so many people have been struggling, I’ve taken the time to go through the process step by step (with screenshots) to show you how to subscribe to a MailChimp newsletter. What is MailChimp? It is an email marketing service open to anyone with a message to send to their audience, clients or customers. There are so many benefits to incorporating email marketing into your business plan but laying out the details of that is not the purpose of this post. Let’s continue, shall we?
