When I first started building my list, I was a virtual assistant.
I didn’t like working for someone else and I wanted the freedom to work for myself.
That’s when I decided to start building my email list. I picked the topic of “business start-up success” because helping others start businesses is my passion. I’ve been motivated to help by seeing so many people go every day to work at a job that they dislike.
Fast-forward 4 months and I had built my list from 0 to 1,011 subscribers.
I also recently did one 72-hour pre-sale offer called Brand + Build Workshop and made $200.
This has already brought in $1,000 in revenue!
How did you do it?
I got my first 100 subscribers by doing one thing.
I created e-books and other materials and then marketed them on social media platforms like Facebook.
Here are some screenshots of those freebies:
Then, I found my ideal audience in Facebook groups and posted these freebies in those communities. I asked people to comment “Yes!” on the picture, which would push my post back to the top of the group, ensuring that it continued to be seen by members.
This strategy grew my list to 750 subscribers.
After my list grew to 750 subscribers, I hosted a giveaway to attract more of my ideal audience. My giveaway was called “Entrepreneurial Prize Pack Giveaway.” To let people know about my strategy, I promoted it on Twitter and Facebook groups. This helped me gained another 334 subscribers. I was so excited that I reached my goal of 1000 subscribers before my launch!
Here’s a screenshot of the “Entrepreneurial Prize Pack Giveaway”:
Since then my list has grown to 1,011 by me continuing to promote these freebies via Facebook groups.
What has building an email list changed in your life and allowed you to do?
Having an email list has allowed me to get my message out to a specific group of people who WANT to hear from me. I love having an audience to give and sell to, as well as to encourage me to keep creating valuable content that my audience wants!
What’s next for you?
I’m spending all of my time focused on three things:

The resources that Videofruit creates have become my "go-to's" in my business. I refer to Videofruit's blog daily. The 10ksubs course has kept me motivated and allowed me to grow my list to over 1,000 subscribers in just a few months! The 10ksubs Facebook group has become like a second family in my business - I ask questions all the time and have already collaborated on a few projects with other members. Videofruit has literally changed the way I run my business!
