    Hi Ruth,

    Do you recommend simply sending an email once a week to your list even if you don’t have a new blog post to share? It takes me so long to write posts, add pictures, etc, but putting emails together seems to flow more smoothly for me. I also need to get into a solid groove of using Mail Chimp, unless of course there is an easy way to transfer my current email lists to Drip. One more thing, do you think that Drip is easier to use than Mail Chimp? Thank you so much, your valuable insight is much appreciated!

    Hi Ruth! I’ve been soaking up a lot of the information through your productivity guide and feel I’m getting some clarity. I ignore my email subscribers and know I need to send out newsletters. One of my goals this year is that E-book for new subscribers. Thank you for sharing, I’ve learned a lot already!

    Hi Ruth, I’m guilty of ignoring my subscribers. The crazy thing is I was already thinking about this prior to reading this post. I subcribed to a friend’s blog earlier this year and she is constantly emailing her list and directing them to her products and new content. Excited to start but I still have a bunch of questions.

    I could not agree more. People read very selectively and are distracted. Staying in touch and top of mind is paramount. I think more and shorter messages that inspire, entertain, or teach will be my focus.

    Thanks for the gentle nudge. I have a new goal for 2017!

    For us really newbies who don’t have a list, is social media and blogging the best place to get subscribers for my list? I don’t plan to make money off my blog. It is there to build the Know, Like and Trust factors, move people to an opt-in for a freebie and get them on my list for later sales of courses.

    You always inspire me! I have been wondering how and when to concentrate on an email list and now you have answered the questions plus more! 2017 is going to be an awesome year!

    I have attended several of your free sessions, and really wanted to sign up fro EBA this year, but even with the discount, just couldn’t do it. I have one more year to work at my six day a week job before I retire and go on Social Security. That and a part time job, will finally allow me the time to get my blog and business going.

    What would you recommend as the best possible use of my time this year, to prepare for my early 2018 launch? Am I correct to assume I need the specialized help to get started? I could start, and flop my first blog, by inexperience and lack to time. Just want to get the best start possible.

    Thanks, Margaret F
