Even if You Have a List Size of 0, Have
No Clue What Opt-in Freebie to Create
and Have No Product to Sell
Resorting to Sleazy Selling
Throwing money at expensive tools which you have no idea how to use
Losing your mind trying to figure out the tech
Two blog businesses can have the SAME email list size.
But there’s a MAJOR DIFFERENCE between one that establishes authority, grows in visibility, and makes money while the other just blends in with the rest.
Do you know what that difference is?
The one that succeeds has A PLAN for their email list.
Maybe you’ve been blogging for months or years but have never taken the time or effort to grow your list...
Maybe you’re at the very beginning of the list building journey, with NO list or a very small one...
Maybe you have an average-sized list but you struggle with engagement, writing emails and have no clue how to monetize that list...
No matter where you are in your journey, there is no better time to not just launch and grow your list but create a strategic plan for it.
Because, you just can't afford to wait.
You’re losing the opportunity to connect and grow your audience and authority. You're also leaving money on the table.
You’re frustrated with your opt-in offer. You’re giving people what they want but they don’t subscribe to your list and you’re tired of seeing your list grow by a single digit every single day
You struggle when it comes to writing emails to your list. How do you send them content that’s different from what’s already on your blog?
Your subscribers never ever respond to you as much as you try.
You desperately want to make some money, but don’t want to come across as that person who is constantly promoting their offer.
You're hustling like crazy but don't seem to get results! You look at all those people monetizing their blogs and profiting from their email list and you're tired, worn out and (let's be honest..) a tad bit jealous.
You tried everything you could to grow your list to a decent number and you're wondering...'now what'
If you're saying 'YES' to any of these statements, I have your back!

Email Lists Simplified at a glance
I’m going through your email “recipe card,” and it’s helping me so much! I was so stuck on what to send out each week and I’ve been so worried about how I will respond to the people that sign up to my list, but this has been super helpful :)
I feel like this is getting me so organized and relieving the stress!
Kristen King, Bountiful Path
In August, I created two new opt-ins using your advice from the course. My email list nearly doubled in size that month.
In October, I had a baby. In November, I still had that newborn baby and a 3-year-old. I only managed to work about 5 hours a week on my blog during those months, but my list kept growing steadily on autopilot
Emily McGee, My Adaptable Career
I've always wanted to engage with my audience in a personalized way via email marketing but did not know where to start.
Your course helped me in understanding what kind of opt-ins I should have to generate leads and how to set up an email sequence to build a relationship with my followers.
Your input helped me a lot in successfully setting up the 7 Day Book Kickstart Challenge on my site. I highly recommend your course and coaching to every online entrepreneur who wants to grow their business by growing their list.
Jyotsna Ramachandran, Founder - Happy Self Publishing
I spent a lot of time working to grow my email list. I devoured everything I could about list building and tried every strategy I could think of. It worked and my subscriber list grew… but then I ran into a problem. I didn’t know what to say.
I’d spent so long learning how to grow my list that I’d never thought about what I was going to do after. I had no plan, so I defaulted to writing an off-the-cuff email after each blog post I published.
I decided to take Email Lists Simplified because I needed help with my email marketing. I knew I could trust you because your blog is full of helpful and detailed information.
After taking Email Lists Simplified, I have a plan for my email list. I know when I’m going to be emailing, what launches I’m going to be participating in and what else I’m going to email them about. And none of it has to do with my recent blog posts.
Cath Oneissy, Iconic Copy
I love what you do and could not have gotten my email sequence going without taking your course. It's been so much easier since taking your email course.
Paul Martin, Conrad Know-How
Meera! Thank you so much. I have been confused for months on what I should be sending my list and how to get more engagement and your course laid everything out so well.
Your lessons on creating a welcome series totally changed how I looked at email marketing. It was a life saver and it made drafting my own welcome series 100 times easier. I recommend your blog and your course to anyone that is wanting to implement email marketing!
McKinzie Bean, Moms Make Cents
Meera, I have to say, you have put together an impressive course! I can't believe how much you cover!
I've been inspired to create more content upgrades, pay more attention to where I put my sign up forms and go through my welcome series again. Now that I have an overview of the information in the course I am planning on going through each module and implementing everything fully over the next few months.
Emma Bates, KidsCashChaos
Oh my goodness, this lesson blew me away! You are really helping me understand that there is a SCIENCE to this e-mailing thing! Thank you for sharing your awesome words of wisdom!
Christin Baker, Garments of Splendor
Meera, before taking your course I had no idea what to send 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!
Ralitsa Minkova, Destination Fearless
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.
