Best Tools to Grow Your Email List from Scratch in 2019

Let's take a minute to talk about the best tools to grow your email list from scratch in 2019. Or even better, how to build an email list period. Emailing marketing is one of those things that you absolutely need to be taking advantage of in your business. This is a great way to stay in touch with your audience and even let them know when you've got a new YouTube video out.

In this video, we're talking all about email list building. I'm going to share how to build an email list fast using my favorite email list building tools. Let's dig into that email list!

ConvertKit (or MailChimp)

The first tool I always recommend is one that you actually have to have. An email service provider to start collecting those emails. I currently use ConvertKit and love it. However, if you're looking for a free option, MailChimp has you covered. These platforms will allow you to collect email address and then send mass email updates to your subscribers.

Leadpages

Leadpages is a site I use that connects with ConvertKit to deliver my lead magnet or opt in offer. Here's a secret- no one is signing up because they really want your newsletter that bad. The best way to grow your email list is to offer them a freebie. Give them something of value in exchange for their email address.

Leadpages gives you the ability to really track data, see how opt ins are converting and give you insights on how you can keep growing.

Canva

Those opt ins I talked about? Canva is one amazing way to create them. This easy to use platform provides you with templates to create everything from PDFs to checklists and more. And the best part? You can use this tool for everything else too! Thumbnails, Pinterest images, you name it!

Hello Bar

This is a newer tool to me and I LOVE it! It's a little pop up bar for your website. Now before you run off because you HATE pop ups, listen. I hate them too. But this pop up is different. It doesn't obscure the screen and you can set it to pop up during specific actions. Like when a person is leaving your website.

These are the tools that I use and LOVE. Which tool are you most excited about?

You MUST DO THIS Before Starting a YouTube Channel

It's time to start a YouTube channel. You're excited and a little nervous but still ready! Or maybe you've been on YouTube for a while but you're not seeing the traction you'd hoped for. In this video, we're going to be talking about what to do before you start on YouTube.

Getting started on YouTube doesn't have to be complicated and you don't have to do it aimlessly. In fact, it's time to end the spaghetti at the wall tactics and get strategic. We're going to dig into everything you need to do to create a solid strategy to help you reach the level of success you've been waiting for!

Planning.

Without a plan, you literally have no way of knowing where you're going. It's like taking a road trip with no map or directions. You may end up somewhere but not necessarily where you want to go. Instead, create a plan that will help you reach your YouTube goals!

Branding.

You probably don't even realize it but branding plays a HUGE role for your YouTube channel. This is what helps you stand out in your market so that when people see certain colors or fonts, they're going to know it's your videos! I suggest picking 2 or 3 colors and 1 or 2 fonts to really represent your brand and stick with them. This will help your audience learn to recognize YOUR content.

Strategize.

As tempting as it can be to just create whatever content you want, it's important to have a strategy. Use a tool like TubeBuddy to help you start researching topics. Collect topic ideas based off of what's working on YouTube and where you can stand out among those topics.

Once you have a list of topics, you can start to create playlist ideas based off of themes.

Scripting.

This can feel like a huge waste of time but scripting your content will help you get through filming while ensuring you say everything you need to say. Now if reading from a script feels difficult for you, you can even create a rough outline to help guide you. The most important elements to remember here are your hook and your call to action.

Scheduling.

One of the best ways to reach success is with a strong schedule. And I'm not just talking about scheduling your videos! Schedule a time to batch record content. This means block off time to record several videos at once so that you can be consistently posting on YouTube.

Analyze.

Once you've done all of this, it's important to look at the analytics. This is the data you NEED to grow on YouTube and build a channel that will continue to get more views and subscribers and even more clients to your business.
