If you thought this email would be just an introduction without an actual piece of advice - you’re wrong!
And here’s my advice for you today, on this celebration of a new beginning - start an email list.
I already have email subscribers for my blog, where I teach how to become a better content creator. I always strived for better communication with my followers. If you are creating something and people react to your work - do it for them. Open an email list and send them updates about your life.
Your primary resistance would be that you wouldn’t want to join another newsletter, so why should they? I get that. But if today George R. R. Martin would open a new newsletter where he shares information about Westeros that we never read before, or better yet - to announce the next book - I would jump on it in a heartbeat!
That’s what people feel about your work, regardless of you believing it or not. Please do it for them. Open an email list as an act of Customer Service and follow through with consistent updates.
It will open doors that you wouldn’t believe possible.
