3 Ways To Effectively Engage Your List!

Written on October 2, 2015

Hey my friend…Robert here,

If you’ve been on my list or following my blog posts for a while, then you know I love to provide value.

Well guess what? That right there is one of the best ways to get your list to engage!

Provide value to them.create value text in wood type

They will appreciate it so much, trust me

Because here’s the truth:

Your subscribers get tons of emails every day, and almost every one of them is a pitch.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with sharing offers that you recommend with your list, although if that’s ALL you are doing…

It won’t last.

They’ll get tired of it and unscubscribe. Plus, let’s face it…no one likes to be sold…And Sold…

And sold.

Okay, you get the point.

Here’s what I suggest:

Day 1 Email: Value based
Day 2 Email: Value based
Day 3 Email: Value based
Day 4 Email: SELL
Day 5 Email: Value based
Day 6 Email: Value based
Day 7 Email: SELL

What do you notice?  Most of them should provide VALUE.

Doing this will naturally get your subscribers engaging with your content because they see you genuinely care and aren’t only trying to make a quick buck off them.

Another way to get your list to engage with your emails is to get a little personal with them. This doesn’t mean holding a google hangout while on an anniversary date with your spouse 😉

What I mean is sharing simple things about your family, or what you like to do in your spare time, or maybe a health goal of yours.

This is amazing to show your subscribers that you are a REAL person, and not just some weirdo behind a computer. It adds a personal touch.

This does NOT mean your entire email should be about your life, LOL

You can effectively implement this by adding a ‘ P.S. ‘ to the bottom of your emails in a sentence or two.

Another thing, let your personality shine!

Notice that I’m writing this email as if I’m in front of you having an actual conversation?

I do that on purpose, because that’s how I talk.

So in other words, write how YOU talk.

Your subscribers will love you for it.

I’ll admit…this was something I personally had to overcome.

Ya know? Caring about what others thought about me…

Well, without going much into it…that was nothing more than a limiting belief that I decided to overcome.

Okay my friend, here’s a quick recap:

1. Provide more VALUE based emails!
2. Add a personal touch to your emails with a ‘ P.S. ‘
3. Be yourself (always).

Alright, well that about sums up todays blog post, and I hope you got a ton out of it.

To Your Success,

P.S. My first baby daughter Samantha is due mid January. At first, I had feelings of nervousness and excitement. The closer it gets to the due date, the more I’m feeling only EXCITEMENT 🙂

Below is the most recent 4D image of her:

  • That picture is amazing! You’ll know her so well by the time she’s born – such a long way from the days when you didn’t know the sex of the baby until it was born! How very exciting for you both.

  • Wow, thank you for making that young man’s day! I was almost in tears at your kindness to just take him for a ride….you may never know how much you affected him for the better. Just to know that there is kindness out there, makes the world a better place…congrats regarding your daughter, keep on being a good example for her 😉

    • Thanks Vivian! Anything can be hard in the beginning Vivian. You are a really great writer. I’ve read your blogs and love them as well! Everyone has their own style, if yours is working for you, stick to it 🙂

  • Excellent tips. Thanks! I have a few lists, but I don’t engage that often. Will have to start mailing more frequently so they at least won’t forget me. LOL!

    And congratulations on the news about your baby daughter. Children are indeed a blessing; and little girls in particular bring out the best in Dads 🙂
