    I also encourage people to use email validation services as they provide a safety door in case things go wrong with the email they're sending to, this way you won't ruin your sending reputation.

    Roberto great video thanks. You mentioned something in the video about a another video with tips on starting with zero and growing your email marketing list. I am at a very early stage of my business and would like see that video. I didnโ€™t catch where to go watch it. Thanks! Iโ€™ll look on your channel!

    I currently have an email list of about 200, but have never really known how to use the list properly. Still trying to figure out what my free offer of great value will be. I create vibrant landscape and seascape paintings and have lots of original images that I could share and I also do youtube painting training videos.

    This is part of what I was looking for. Thank you for making this video.
    You mention tags for who receives these emails. I am wondering how to go about this because I haven't started yet, but I have two active channels, one gaming and another alternative healing. While some people will be interested in both, some will not be. I'm not sure if I should dedicate emails for gaming and other for healing, or if I should do a mix, with links to latest videos on both channels and some thoughts that could entice each audience. I'll probably need to watch more videos and figure out my plan before I begin, but I'm really wondering how to go about it for these two drastically different channel topics. My website has everything, including projects, which I can sometimes include in the emails, but most of the focus is these two channels.

    Hi Roberto! You and I and other biz owners of all ages understand the importance of email marketing. Question: If the target market is under 30, how do you encourage them to sign up for an email when they prefer to use other quick IM type platforms for connecting? Open rates for this market are often very low. Thank you! โ™ฅ

    I tried to use mailchimp and it was a requirement to announce my address on it, so I tested it out and set it up, I signed up to my mailing list with a different email and it shows my address at the bottom. Apparently its a GDPR requirement or something? I can't go forward with it unless I rented an office or something. What is your view on this?

    EDIT: I've looked around for videos about it, but have found none.

    I've got email marketing set up through mailchimp, but I will probably need to move for better segmentation. Since I'm not promoting as I should, I'm pretty stagnant at the moment. In the middle of building a VA biz, so a lot is falling by the wayside ๐Ÿ˜ข I'd love more tutorials on growing email lists. QOTD: biggest SM frustration is finding time to do it all while building up to where I can outsource somethings.

Lol hopefully I will figure out and have a way of getting emails sent to subscribers with website too. Thank you again for your top notch content and idea sharing

    I started my mailing list way too late (about 3 months ago) but I have a killer lead magnet and the newsletter itself is packed with tons of value. My subs are steadily climbing. I'm at around 300 subs, but I know I could be doing better. You mentioned a few tips that I have yet to implement. I think by doing them it's really going to help. I definitely want to see your video on growing your list to 10 K! Keep it coming, Roberto! Your content has been a tremendous value to me over the years!

    >Hay big thanks to you in general.
    Now my plan was to work my day job and make videos in my spare time. Making money wasnt actually a part of the plan. It started as a side effect. You talked about how to make money on the side and I did it. I did it just a little bit on fiverr and from there Local folks liked my work and hired me.

    Now I was on fiverr so Cheap and my locals want that service but in bulk So I am really cheap and I actually give them pointers on how i do what I do so they can do their own photos… because most the folks i am dealing with are just realizing they need good product photos and then want to inderstand how to do it and That is FINE!

    Thats great because this id not what i was to do long Term
    >That said< i am doing it on a very large scale that scale is like 10K peices Hundreds of models

    Combo of video and images.

    Roberto, My e-mail list is right now on 0. Havenโ€™t started yet BUT soon will! Need to figure out what platform offers the most easy way to โ€œdesignโ€ my website including having solutions for drag and drop videos and photos, solutions for paying customers (not a fan of coding for stripe, woocommerce, WordPress etc etc). I find it insanely stressful and time consuming. I seriously need a site that offers all of the above and more. Drag and drop. Any suggestions Roberto?
    Best

    I have about 200 in my email list. It is growing, when I actually push it. Currently, there is a monthly newsletter that goes out but that is it. I have gotten good feedback on that email and it seems to work well as far as affiliate links, driving traffic to content, etc. I am using MailChimp currently. I would like to grow that list considerably but am having a little trouble figuring out what a good offering might be to entice people to sign up.

    I think the most frustrating thing about social media and YouTube to me is how people have started obsessing over "how to reach a certain metric" instead of thinking about how they can create genuine, good content.

    Oh yeah baby. I can't wait until you do Email Marketing 201! Until then, I'll sign up to your email list to dissect your style ;D

    To answer your question, I've had an email list for about a year. I send emails every Thursday at 8pm. It took so much learning and trial amd error. I have around 100 people on the list. I want it to grow, but first I want to nurture this list and get some engagement! However, I met a few of my email listers and they told me they stay updated but are too shy to reply :p

    I think the biggest struggle for me is the nurturing part of it. My goal for the email list is to be less salesy and more conversational. I want my subscribers to get to know me more, so when it is time for that hard ask, they feel more inclined to follow through. Actually two of my subscribers backed my art book Kickstarter! The first email list ROI I've seen!

    I think my largest struggle with my email list is finding what to say/sharing interesting things about my art / weaving each email into a larger narriative.

    Once I can dissect a good strategy, then I can finally scale! But until then, I'll be pushing email lists at conventions I vend at~

    For the QOTD My boggest frustration with social media and it's limitations is the lack of reach and engagement. I think I have that problem with my email list as well.

    Solid info! Thank you so much!
    Social media makes you bound by their algorithm. If you have 5 million subscribers and THAT is your only method of contact, and the social media platform glitches or deletes you for whatever reason, you lose A LOT ! When you have something like a website, it is YOURS to with what you wish. So, if you don't agree with a particular platform or want more reach or want to offer more value, a website allows you to do such. It's also awesome for proving some more credibility and back linking.
