If you have one already, even a small one, Yay for you! If you don’t then what are you waiting for? No...Seriously, WHAT are you waiting for?

Get started right now! Yes....Well, right after you read this post. Set a plan in motion to get started on your email list building TODAY!! 

Why is an email list important? For many reasons, but here are just a few.


1. You own your list

Yes, Captain Obvious here…but what I mean is that you get to do what you want with your list. If you have a huge following on Facebook, good for you, but what would happen if FB changed their rules tomorrow or worse, just decided to remove all of your followers. Technically, those followers that you call your own, do not really belong to you…Sorry, to burst your bubble, but they are clear cut property of FB. The same goes for Twitter, Instagram and any number of other social media sites. Granted if your followers truly love you, they will follow you anywhere and find you, if say, FB were to tragically cut you off from them…so why not let them sign up for your email list and then they magically all belong to you. MAGIC!!

2. it drives traffic where you want it to

When you send out a broadcast or a newsletter and you add all those wonderful links, you are telling people - “this is where I want you to go. Obey my command, because I own you…” Okay, I was just kidding about the own you part....well not really…anyway..... They will see that you have sent them something so magnificent that you even gave them the direct link to go check it out. If you consistently send them valuable links to check out, they will continue to click on them. You have the magical power to send traffic to anywhere you want.

3. You are in their inbox

I know this seems pretty obvious again, but if I told you how many FB groups, Instagram accounts and Pinterest boards I follow, it would make your head spin. I can not possibly visit each and every one of them everyday or even every week.

I am lucky if I find a great post, pop up in my newsfeed, if I happen to log in that day. Or sometimes I get a notification that one of my favorite accounts has just posted something... But if I am in the middle of something important like updating my phone or playing Drawsome, it may be an after thought if I ever get the chance to actually read it.

The ones that I do follow on a regular basis do not always post something every day, so I just check their pages when I get around to it.

But an email is right there in my face each morning, when I open that cotton picking inbox. I really can’t escape it. Sure, I can filter some messages and send them straight to the trash or a folder that I will get to later {or never}. But for the most part, if I signed up for the mailing list, I pretty much expect to receive something from that person/company sometime in the future.
