Once I had about ten people on my list I began to email them once or twice each week to stay in touch with them. I didn’t have anything to sell yet, and I was only promoting a few affiliate products at that time, so I had to figure out what exactly to write to them.
Without even knowing it, I stumbled onto to one of the best ways to keep my market interested in me and what I was doing. This was through the use of storytelling. I would share experiences I had had while working in real estate or as a classroom teacher. I related these experiences to what I was now doing online. It worked. People began to email me back about how much they enjoyed reading the story and how they could relate to it themselves.
Tell your list stories and they will remember you when it comes time to buy something.
