Two reasons your health blog isn’t growing your email or client lists

 

Has this happened to you?

  • Somebody finds a short generic blog post you published on a random topic.
  • They are SO impressed with it they want to join your email list, so they scroll around searching for that opt-in box. They see at the very top of the sidebar is your “join my newsletter” box to get your “freebie” and excitedly give you their email address.
  • Your “freebie” was thrown together in maybe an hour. It doesn’t show your potential clients how to take the first step to work with you, nor does it promote any of your paid offerings. Regardless, they’re just SO impressed with your work that they go back to your “work with me” page to see what you offer and how they can become your client.
  • BOOM they purchase from you! 🙂

Has that even happened once?
