A politician raised $250 million via email after the election.
This is NOT about politics.
According to congress, the former president raised some $250 million AFTER the election.
They also said his team sent as many as 25 emails a day asking for donations.
He sent 25 emails a day!
One TV commentator (on June 14th) said “I counted 17 emails just today” so it is still going on.
My mentor Tom Matzen taught me to always ask “how does this apply to me?”
I’m always asked about sending emails… “How many is the right amount?” And “isn’t 1 per day too many?”
Well, in this case it seems to work to send LOTS.
So, as much as you’re worried about over sending to your list, I think this shows you that if you’re delivering a message your readers want, then they’re willing to get emails from you.
This is so important, Bradley and I made it the focus of our podcast for the week!
It was kind of funny… Bradley and I were talking before recording as we usually do… and we said, what do you want to talk about today?
And we BOTH said the issue on our minds was being “relentless”
It was amazing how much we’re in tune (even tho we’re on very different ends of the political world).
How does this apply to you?
START SENDING MORE EMAILS to your list.
you MUST be building an email list!
It is the ONLY thing in this highly intensive social media world that is an asset you can keep.
I know this is pretty obvious… but then again it often isn’t… we get so many mentors telling us that social media is the way to go.
But even now, email gets 40x more sales than anything on Facebook!
I confess I was late to the list building game when I was running planet5D… years late. But that’s ok.
Like a GPS, we don’t beat ourselves up, we just say: “How can we reroute to get to where we want to be?”
How many businesses have you seen loose everything because they put all their eggs in one basket? I’ve seen plenty!
A change in a Facebook policy or algorithm can kill your business instantly!
Just look at how everyone was building Facebook pages… getting hundreds of thousands if not millions of people to “like” their page…
and then overnight Facebook changes the algorithm
poof! Business gone.
And lately, we’re seeing that a LOT more!
But if you’re building your email list and monetizing it, nobody can take that away!
And, the industry standards say you will earn about $1 per email address per month if you nurture your list.
EMAIL is where the money is!
