If you are reading this post, you probably have a blog and want to start building your email list. You understand the importance of growing your list, but you just don’t know where to begin. Don’t worry, I was in your shoes before, and I’ll help you!

When I first started blogging, building an email list seemed so complicated. I knew I wanted to be able to offer a freebie in exchange for an email address, but I had no clue how to set that up on my blog.

Then I learned how easy it was to accomplish just that with ConvertKit. ConvertKit is email marketing software designed specifically for bloggers.

What I love about ConvertKit is how you don’t have to be tech savvy AT ALL to use it, which is why I have chosen it as my email service provider. Click here to get started with ConverKit.
