One of the biggest mistakes I made as a blogger and business owner was not starting an email list right from the start. An email list is important because it’s the most direct way to communicate and engage with your fans and subscribers. If you are planning to sell something, the list is often the primary money maker.
You’ll often hear a saying in the internet marketing world: “The money is in the list.”
Furthermore, you can always take your list “with you” where ever you go. For example, if the Smart Passive Income blog died for whatever reason I would still be able to directly contact a great percentage of my followers. Without my list, I’d have to start again from scratch and it could take years to get back to where I was.
