Building a direct relationship with an audience is the best way to reliably earn a living as a creator. Whether you are earning a living with advertising on your content or selling products, having true fans in your corner is key.
As you know I’m a huge fan of email for building that relationship because you can reach each fan directly (rather than renting the relationship from Facebook, YouTube, or other platforms) and you can personalize each interaction with what you know about them.
Today I have two goals:
- To make it far easier for you to start building an audience over email.
- To give you the nudge you need to get started.
Let’s start with the first one.
Start your audience with new landing pages from ConvertKit
Built into ConvertKit we now have beautiful landing pages to help you grow your audience. Whatever you are creating we have a landing page template to help you collect your first subscribers.
The Hudson landing page is great for profile pages.
The Fremont landing page has a slot perfect for podcast artwork or a book cover.
You can see all the templates inside ConvertKit and easily preview and select the one you want to use to start growing your audience.
Once you choose a landing page, let’s move on to a bribe…
Grow your list to 100 subscribers and enter to win $5,000
You may have dreamed of starting your audience for years, but never quite taken the leap. Today I’m here to give you the nudge you need to get started!
In the month of April we’re offering the chance to win $5,000 (and a lot of other prizes) simply for growing your list. Here’s how it works:
- Register for the landing page challenge here
- Create a new landing page in ConvertKit (you can start a free trial if you don’t already have an account)
- Start collecting subscribers (direct outreach to friends and family who would be interested works great!)
Then at the end of April our panel of judges will select winners in each category based on the quality of the landing page design and content.
Even if you don’t win, you’ll have kickstarted your audience and taken the first step to earning a living as a creator.
