Own your audience: Build an email list

You don’t own your thousand of followers. They all belong to Zuckerberg.

A simple algorithm update and your reach can be divided by ten.

Worse, Zuck can decide to shut your account down and you can’t do anything to avoid it.

An email list is still the best way to own your audience. Why?

Because whatever happens in the online marketing world, your email list will always be able to give you a direct line of communication with people who will be interested in buying from you.

The money is in the list

80% of retail professionals suggest that email is their greatest driver of customer retention, and 59% of B2B marketers say that email is their most effective revenue generation channel.

In average, you can get $1 / email / month. So if you have 3000 subscribers on your list, you should make around $3,000/month.
