Start this course

The mailing list is a central element of every author’s marketing strategy. It's the one main tool you’ll use to build a long-lasting relationship with your readers, turning them into repeat buyers and unconditional fans. Every sale you make while your mailing list is not in place is basically a lost opportunity.

Months before you even think about releasing your book, you MUST be actively growing your mailing list. Thankfully, there are tried-and-tested methods for doing just that, and we're going to show you what they are.

What you'll learn in this course:

  • Which mailing list providers are right for you
  • How to set up your mailing list and add subscribers
  • How to use reader magnets to grow your list
  • How to keep your subscribers "warm"
  • How to segment your mailing list in order to sell your book
