Who is Michael Neeley?
Michael Neeley was an actor and a professional jouster (seriously!) before becoming an entrepreneur. Now he is a podcaster with five podcasts and a mindset coach who uses his podcasting expertise to coach other aspiring podcasters. In wearing all of these hats, he has learned the importance of having a robust list to grow his business. Listen in to hear what soap operas Michael acted on–you won’t want to miss hearing about his professional jousting days.
Why you need an active email list
Michael first learned the advice to continually build your list first from Jeff Walker, but the advice didn’t sink in until he began to see results. With his email list now at 10,000+ subscribers after 4 years of growth, Michael uses it to launch products, promote offers, and cross-promote other industry leaders.
Your list is like your own personal ATM machine if you understand how to build it and use it.
Since your audience is looking for more than just spam, it is important to provide useful information, tips, tactics, and advice. Make sure that the people in your list align with your business offerings so that you’re speaking to the right audience. Remember your list is like your fan base. You’ll want to show your appreciation for your fans and nurture them.
How to grow your list
You can grow your list by doing several things. Michael recommends using Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula to help grow your list. Another way to grow your audience is to use cross-promotion with other thought leaders in your industry. This can help you not only build your list but help you receive commissions from affiliate marketing.
Speaking at live and virtual summits are great ways to increase your audience. One summit alone could add thousands of new subscribers.
Everyone loves a giveaway, so offering a freebie can be another way to improve your numbers. Listen in to hear how to use these tactics to grow your email list and increase your business revenue.
