No I haven’t left for vacation yet…But thank you all for your well wishes! I’ll be off to Park City on Saturday woot! And yes my balls will be packed.
A few months ago I told you that I wanted to start sharing more blogging tips! So far I’ve discussed food photography, SEO and a two part series on social media (part 1 and part 1). Today I wanted to talk about an area of blogging which is often overlooked but should not be ignored,building your email subscription list! I’ve actually broken this series down into two parts, part 1 which highlights why it’s important and part 2 about tips to building your list. And potentially a part 3 if you guys are interested in how to transfer your RSS subscribers to more professional looking sites like MailChimp or Aweber.
In today’s post I am focusing on 4 reasons to start building your email subscription list, but because the topic covers a lot of detail I thought it would be easier to go through everything in a video. Plus you know I’m always looking for my next challenge, so video tutorials it is!
1. Helps to establish a loyal following
2. A guaranteed way for people to see your posts.
3. A direct communication with readers
4. Special offers & discounts.
A couple things about the video. 1) Forgive me if it looks like a 3 year old did it, I tried to teach myself Adobe Premiere in a day. 2) I have an excessive amount of food props and yes they are on colour coordinated shelves.
I’ll be taking the next couple of days off but I have a couple recipes from my arsenal that I’ll be posting over the next few weeks, and of course some highlights from my trip. See ya on the flipside folks!
