Did you know you’re giving social media the power to completely end your business and cut you off from all of your followers without even consulting you (they don't care).
If social media disappeared tomorrow, what would happen to all of those people that were following you? You’d be left scrambling and starting over from scratch (they don't care).
An email list is something that you own and social media can’t take that from you. If social media went away tomorrow, you’ still have a way to get in front of your audience.
If you had to choose between 5,000 subscribers or 50,000 followers what would you choose?
That should be an easy answer, subscribers of course.
Subscribers are more beneficial to your business than followers, this isn’t a numbers game or popularity contest. A huge following doesn’t mean your followers are invested in your brand, shopping with you or even visiting your site. They can just be drive by likes, and we all know likes don’t pay the bills.
Fact: email subscribers are more likely to invest in your brand and spend money with you than those that follow you on social media.
To easily put: just because someone is following you doesn’t mean they are the right people for what your brand offers. If you want to build an effective audience, you want to build an email list.
To give you a few stats: Both Facebook and Instagram’s organic reach is on the decline, less and less of your followers are actually seeing your posts. They now give you the option to PAY to BOOST your post and reach to get in front of those people that are already following you.
You don’t have to pay to get in front of people on your email list. In fact, these are the people that want to be kept in the loop on all the happenings with your brand.

No need to compete for their attention on social media, you already have it.
Should you totally neglect social media? Nope. Social media is a great TOOL for outreach but not the only means you should be taking to attract and grow your audience.
Email List Building
Takes more than setting up a subscription box on your page and asking readers to give you their email address. If you want your email list to do numbers and you want to get the right people on your list, you have to give them a reason to get on your list outside of the typical “weekly updates, the first to know, etc.”
This is what my email list looked like at the beginning of the year, low, yup.
Skip forward a few months and there has been tremendous growth. My email list literally does numbers.. on it’s own. And this growth is not from a subscription form.
