You might have heard about, "money is in the list"
I have too, and I started building my e-mail list a few months back. I started from zero. No connections, no traffic, nothing.
One day, all of sudden out of nowhere, I decided to offer a free course. Some of my subscribers demanded me for it and I had seen some comments on other videos that people needed that course.
I thought it might be a perfect opportunity to create a lead-magnet. I sat through the weekend, designed a comprehensive course about ClickFunnels in Hindi. I posted a video about it on my YouTube channel (at the time I had only 8-10 subscribers, all organic. I hadn't shared it with my family or friends)
Now it's almost 5 months to that video, that video is bringing me approx 2-3 new leads for me in my mailing list. I had never ever thought I'd be building a mailing list. As of this day of writing, my mailing list has crossed 300+ subscribers. That means 300 people actually enrolled in my course 🤯
Imagine, a beginner, like me, with zero connections, building an e-mail list. But wo toh theek hai, list toh ban gayi... But what to do with that mailing list? Life me kabhi kuch send nahi kiya aise unknown logon ko, I can't even explain you the emotions going through my mind right now.
Just now, I scheduled my first ever e-mail to my subscribers. It's about a video that I watched yesterday and how I was trapped in Shiny Object Syndrome for quite some time.
It isn't perfect, and it's very unorganised. But I think that's okay. I don't need to be perfect in my first time. I just had to do it because I wanted to share how I felt about that video, and it might help others.
But the most interesting thing, I've mentioned a new offer that I wanted to try in the P.S. Section of my e-mail (actually, P.P.S). I don't want to sound salesy to my subscribers.
The emotions I am going through right now are -
And most importantly
You might have heard that "push a button and make thousands of dollars from your email" 😂 That's the image coming to my mind right now...
I don't know, it's so funny to think about. I'll probably laugh at myself when I read this 3 years from now!
But it's exciting 🙂
I'm learning new things.
I'm experiencing new feelings.
Anyways, if you've read this far, I would like to encourage you to do the things that you think are uncomfortable. Even though it's imperfect, do it. Your future-self would thank you that you did those things.
Thanks for your time ❤️
