Why You’re Wasting Your Welcome Email (and What to Do About It)

Why You’re Wasting Your Welcome Email (and What to Do About It)

Well, you finally did it.

You created an email list for your blog.

That means you’re now converting casual visitors into something far more valuable – subscribers.

Feels pretty good, doesn’t it?

It should. You’re building a loyal audience who actively wants to hear from you. An audience you can reach at will, instead of hoping they’ll remember to return to your blog (because sadly, most won’t).

And if you’re smart, you’ll do everything you can to coax new people to join your shiny new list.

But while focusing on your list is healthy for your blog, it can also expose you to a dangerous pitfall:

You can become so single-minded about getting people to subscribe that you don’t think about what happens afterwards.

Big mistake.

Because those early interactions with new subscribers are crucial. They set the tone for your new relationship, and they happen in that precious “honeymoon” period where readers are actively thinking about your blog and the value it could provide to them.

And the start of that relationship rests on one simple communication:

Your welcome email.

So you’d better get it right.

The Wild and Crazy Guide to Writing Sentences

The Wild and Crazy Guide to Writing Sentences

You’ve heard them.

The “gurus.”

The Internet marketers. The social media experts. The serial product launchers.

(Even some popular bloggers are guilty of it.)

“Blogging is easy,” they say glibly. “And it’ll bring you all the attention, money and recognition you desire.”

“All you have to do is write epic content.”

Meanwhile, you’re sitting there at your keyboard pounding your fists in frustration, because you have all these fantastic ideas that you want to share, but you’re afraid that you can’t do them justice.

Epic? You’re afraid your writing isn’t even enjoyable.

You worry that you’re not a good enough writer. That your ideas are simply going to vanish into the electronic ether because you can’t attract enough readers with your words.

Sometimes you even wonder if you should just give up on your blogging dreams altogether.

But you shouldn’t. And here’s why.

You can become a great blogger and writer by mastering just one fundamental skill.

25 Valuable Lessons from Seriously Successful Writers

Stop it.

Stop feeling sorry for yourself.

You might think your problems are special, unique, or impossible for anyone else to understand. But you know what?

As writers, we’re all struggling with the same basic problems.

You’re not the only one who doesn’t know what kind of writer to become.

You’re not the only one who spends hours tinkering with sentences – and still hates them.

And you’re not the only one who’ll do anything – clean the bathroom, service the car, even run a marathon – to avoid sitting your butt in that chair and doing the work.

Almost every writer faces problems like procrastination, perfectionism, and self-doubt at one time or another. Even the successful ones.

But the feeling of being totally alone on your writer’s journey is insidious.

It gnaws at your confidence and weakens your resolve.

It causes talented writers to give up when all they need to do is keep going.

And that needs to stop right now …


How to Build Relationships with Popular Bloggers (Even If It Scares You Silly)

How to Build Relationships with Popular Bloggers (Even If It Scares You Silly)

You know you’re supposed to be reaching out to popular bloggers.

After all, without help, how will you compete with the Internet’s 150 million other blogs?

Popular bloggers already have large audiences. They can introduce your content to thousands of readers you’d never otherwise reach. They can introduce you to other powerful people online.

But something has been holding you back.

Every time you think of reaching out, it kicks in …

The fear of rejection.

“Why would famous bloggers pay any attention to me?”

“They’ll know I’m a newbie and scoff in disgust!”

Don’t worry – these feelings are common. It’s freaking awkward to throw yourself in a total stranger’s face and ask them to help you.

Fortunately, though, there is a way to befriend influencers and get them to promote your work without straying too far from your comfort zone.

In fact, if you do it right, outreach can easily feel less scary, more natural, and even invigorating.

Let’s find out how…


How to Become a Confident Expert (and Stop Feeling Like a Fraud)

How to Become a Confident Expert (and Stop Feeling Like a Fraud)

It’s hard to admit, but…

You sometimes feel like a fraud.

There’s a yawning gap between how you present yourself online, and how you actually feel.

You know that to be credible online, people must see you as an expert, but how often do you feel you actually deserve that label?

Sure, you have a good understanding of your topic, and you’re expanding your knowledge every day, but are you truly an expert?

In truth, being seen as an expert is as much about your confidence as it is about the depth and breadth of your knowledge. If you act like an expert, people tend to treat you like one.

But here’s the thing. Knowledge breeds confidence. And if you sometimes feel like a fraud, it just means you don’t have quite enough knowledge yet.

So the question is: what do you need to know to confidently present yourself as an expert in your topic?

And how can you acquire that knowledge as quickly as possible?
