even if you think you are incapable of writing anything engaging; and
without eating into your limited time or swallowing up whatever's left of your patience in dealing with the maze that's email!
Two stats will blow your mind away.
"Subscribers are the most engaged within those first 48 hours after they subscribe"
"Welcome emails have the highest open rates of 50-60% among all emails."
But does your welcome email carry its weight?
Or does it fizzle out and fall into oblivion in your subscriber's inbox?
Getting subscribers is one part of the equation. But what’s more important is what you do with them next even if you have nothing to sell!
This is where your welcome email and welcome email series come in. These are emails that will help your subscriber get to know you and start to build a connection; even encourage them to purchase from you in the end.
But you're outright confused and you have a ton of questions! What should go in a series? Where should you lead your subscribers? Is my welcome email any good? Why don't I get replies?
You give it your best shot but the few subscribers you have aren't exactly screaming with glee or excited to hear from you. That buzzword called engagement? You've gone none.
Here's the sad, soggy truth about your welcome email
Your welcome email and series are subscriber magnets only if you craft them effectively.
There's so much more to creating a winning welcome email and series than posting links to your top few posts and saying 'Thank you for joining my list'.
It took me plenty of trial and error before coming up with a simple process for creating winning welcome emails that subscribers love.
My emails set the tone and impression of my brand and business from the very first day. I deliver value in a way that's interesting, engaging and professional so that I generate trust. I also build social proof and gather insights about my audience all on auto.
And the 60+ and counting welcome emails that I've read from readers and subscribers have the same mistakes repeated over and over again.
I packaged all of what I figured out into the Nurture your list Bundle.
The Nurture your list bundle gives you all the templates, tools and techniques to write a winning welcome email and craft a welcome emails series that's aligned with your goals without eating into your limited time or swallowing up whatever's left of your patience in dealing with the maze that's email.

Nurture Your List at a glance
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.

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.

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.
