Smash Your Email Automations (With an Epic Blueprint)
Ever heard of "email automations" before? When I first started my own biz, I was overwhelmed by all these business terms the gurus were throwing around. "Email automations" was one of them. But don't worry! It's just a fancy term for an automated string of emails your email provider will send out under conditions you customize. For example, you may put together a string of automated emails that get sent out 4 days apart from each other from the time someone subscribes to your list. Typically, an automation consists of five emails you auto send to a new subscriber over the course of a few weeks to warm them up to you, your brand, and your product suite. In this episode, you’ll learn… * The exact blueprint on what to write in your automated emails and why * The power of brand story and free bonuses in your first Welcome email * How to use the "hook, story, call to action structure" (plus free bonuses) in emails 2-5 to drive your new subscribers to sales * Insider tips on things NOT to do so you can avoid warnings from your email provider and high unsubscribe rates * The mindset behind how to determine email frequency for your new automation * And more nitty gritty tips for maximum success!
