You Need an Email List

While email lists may be common, it’s not always clear why tons of bloggers and businesses have adopted this additional task. Feeling clueless? Not sure whether you should start one of your own? Here are a few reasons why you should totally start building an email list, and one reason why you shouldn’t.

  • You completely own it
  • Email subscribers are more likely to be buyers and you can set up custom funnels
  • You can get feedback from your audience
  • People are addicted to email

If you never plan on making money from your website, you don’t need an email list, but you should provide a way for folks to subscribe and get your latest news and posts delivered to you.
