"It's so refreshing to have a clear and specific framework to follow."
Meera, before taking your course I had no idea what to send to my subscribers, especially after they'd just signed up.
I went through your process in Email Lists Simplified and it all finally fell into place. Now, I feel more confident in crafting and sending emails to my list. I can also put together an attractive opt-in offer for my ideal audience, thanks to the bundled Opt-In Blueprint course.
It's so refreshing to have a clear and specific framework to follow when you're just starting out. Thank you!

Within the first exercise, light bulbs were going off in my head big time! It has completely revolutionized the way I think about my blog and I went through a total paradigm shift!
By asking myself the questions in your worksheet I was able to "put myself in their shoes" so to speak, and think about what they struggle with. I also have tons of ideas for blog posts, potential products and opt-in freebies.
I just wanted to say this stuff is amazing, and I am so excited to continue learning!

I was right there, where you are right now.
Standing there, feeling lost, and dead scared thinking:
What am I supposed to do with all these people that I get on my list?
So, I did what everyone does and hit Google!
I looked, dug through pages and pages of content that Google threw up at me. I did find some useful information, a few nuggets that gave me hope but no information that was tailored for bloggers and solopreneurs like you and me.
There was very little advice out there beyond the 'you need an email list'.
As confused as I was back then, I was clear about one thing: I didn't want to just grow my list...I wanted to engage with my subscribers and have a conversation.
Sending blog post notifications didn't seem right to me at all. So I started experimenting with my emails and sequences...all the while self doubt was crowding in....
Will they hate my emails?
What if my emails are boring?
What if they unsubscribe?
I was scared to death when I hit publish on my welcome email series and when I got my first subscriber and knew they were reading my emails....
I felt I was going alone in the dark.
So, why did I continue experimenting with my email list then?
Not because the 'gurus' told me I needed to have one. But because I saw that my efforts were starting to pay off.
I've been able to grow my list to 1300+ subscribers in 6 months and get a steady stream of sign-ups....
I started to wake up to emails and tweets from my audience....
and make sales via my email...all within 6 months of starting my blog.
And I want to show you that you can do that too!

"You have answered all the pain points of beginners in email marketing..."
Meera, this is absolutely awesome!!!
You have comprehensively answered all the pain points of beginners in email marketing. I am genuinely impressed with the work you have put in for this course, and its still only a part of it!!! I can imagine how useful the course will be for newbies like me.
I particularly love the part where you have detailed the difference between an opt-in and landing page. I personally ask myself why I should have a landing page. I am sure many have the same question. You have very clearly answered that.

"I noticed an immediate increase in opt-ins"
Meera, I had a part in there that literally stopped me in my tracks and caused me to take immediate action. It was actually pretty profound, despite being super simple.
But then WHY WASN'T I DOING IT ALREADY?!
So I immediately added a business category to my blog, and then started promoting it that way and I noticed an immediate difference in opt-ins! I've attached a screenshot below so you can see the difference between this month (implementing your strategies) versus last month.
I'd say it's pretty darn impressive!!

"Step-by-step on what you have to focus on..."
Being a fairly new blogger, I usually get the "shiny object syndrome". From getting ideas here and advise from one Facebook group to another. It gets overwhelming!
Meera goes step-by-step on what it is that YOU have to focus on and what questions to ask yourself in order to have a successful email list that your readers will continue to look forward to reading.
She puts out a plan for you that will help you get the answer of what your readers' pain points are and at the same time, give you opt-in ideas.
If you're a newbie and even if you've been blogging for some time, this will help guide you to create your opt-ins with samples and tools she has used.

Amazing feedback and I think you hit it on the head. I definitely am going to work through this list. I can't wait to report back with my results. I cannot thank you enough. I was telling my friend the other day that I just don't know how to drive people to my website and I'm not sure if freebies actually convert anymore. I was so discouraged but I do think these suggestions will help!
