How many times have you checked out a blog and it looks like a site with good information, you browse around a little and then you subscribe to their newsletter. Then in a few days you start getting email from the blog that is nothing more than telling you how great what they have to recommend is. You click on the link in the email and it sends you to a squeeze page that just wants you to buy something. You don’t get any USEFUL information in their emails. You just keep getting email after email offer. You can tell they are just in it for the money. They really don’t care to offer any help to anyone. I have emailed a few sites to ask for advice or help just to see if they would respond…..you guessed it nothing happened. I subscribe to about 20 sites a week, and don’t see much value in the newsletters, just lots of offers.
If you want to make an impact online and build a huge list for your blog, write great, valuable information and give it away in your newsletter and people will stay subscribed to your list and your following will grow HUGE. You will become the authority for them. Then you can recommend product and services and make an income the will surpass most of the other bloggers and websites. Remember the “money is in the list”. But before you get to that your subscribers needs come first. Give them the useful and valuable information that they seek. Then your list will trust you and your recommendations. And the money will come.
