Alright, let's get right into it. The one thing that you've been missing in your blog is that's the drum beat the drum beat before I actually get to the answer. The one thing that you've been missing in your blog is email lists, have to collect emails, you saying, Wow, gotta collect email? Yes, you have to collect emails. You don't have to collect emails, it will behoove you to collect emails. Here's why. Here's a few reasons why, what if something happens to your blog, and you have no way of contacting those people, you're not going to contact everyone via your social media. What if something happens to your social media, you're not getting all the reach anyway, on your social media platforms. And if most people see, unless you're some one real popular, that has a lot of different connections or whatnot, it's gonna be hard to get that traffic back up to get that email list to where it was. But that's, that's the holy grail to blog in your email is now if you're building niche sites, you're not going to throw email lists on every niche site, because you're going to be dealing with a lot of other things.
In terms of making money for those particular niche sites, you're gonna be dealing with ad networks, you're going to be dealing with maybe something like any book for sale, or course for sale or something for sale. So everyone that's doing a niche site, they're not going to be using email lists on every one of their niche sites. But it is so important that you get in tune with email marketing services, like ConvertKit, AWeber, get response or any one of those or any one of the ones that you're comfortable with. And you have to give away some you have to give away something such as a white paper, something such as a ebook, something that will help your audience like a mini course, an audio book, things like that, something that's easy, but something that you have to give away. That's the one thing that you've been missing for your blog. And with that email list, you can send updates out, you can send things like, Hey, I have a new blog posts out, you don't want to abuse that email lists. You don't want to do things like you know, constantly trying to sell people things. But at some point, that's what you want it for, because you want to maybe you have a course that's for sale. You want to let those people on email lists know, hey, you have a course for sale? Or you have a webinar or or what have you.
Yeah, it's gonna take time to create those things. But guess what, everything takes time. Everything takes it takes time to create a blog posts. It takes time to even put together a website put together your blog, takes time to collect these email addresses. It takes time to make that ebook, to make that white paper to make that mini course to make that audio book. It takes time, it's going to take time to do all of these things. So what why are you doing it, you want to kind of eliminate the kind of the excuses of man, I have to add this, I would say it it behooves you, I love using that word be behooves it behooves you to have an email marketing service, an auto responder, that's what they call it. And that's what you're missing. Now, of course, you could be missing so many other things, but those things can come later on. You don't have to do everything at once. I think that's a big misconception also that everything needs to be done at once when it comes to blog, and you don't have to do everything at once. Having an email list. Even if you start off without an email list, that's okay. But you're gonna see at some point, if you stick with it, and you grow that blog, you're gonna see at some point, are you going to say, Man, I wish I would have started that email list sooner, I would say started as soon as possible. But you don't have to everybody's situation is different now. I understand that I'm not saying that you have you have to do it right now because of your, whatever situation you're in. But I do it ASAP. I would not wait at all. That's the one thing that you're missing email lists,
