“The quickest way to do many things is to do one thing at a time.” – Christopher Westra

You might be thinking that the best way to get things done is to multitask and work on many things at the same time. But by juggling too many tasks, you’re well on your way to feeling overwhelmed and eventually burning out. This doesn’t do your business any good at all.

When you focus on working on just one thing at a time, you’re able to think deeper and be more creative, which results in a better finished product.

If you want an email list full of subscribers, you need to focus on one thing: building your email list. When you invest your energy into your email list, you’re able to convert subscribers into paying customers and build relationships with customers you may not have met any other way. In this post I will share 3 things you can do to help you focus your efforts on building your email list.

1. Prioritize

Before you spend your time on trendy marketing tactics, make growing your email subscriber list your top priority. Whether you’re launching a new business or looking to grow your current one, a high-quality, relevant email list will help you achieve your goals.

This might feel impossible when you have a huge list of high priority tasks in your business, but with email marketing you’ll put automated systems in place to attract potential clients on a consistent basis.

2. Strategize

You can’t expect your business to grow if you aren’t taking advantage of email marketing. Think strategically about where you want your business to go and plan for that.

Start by identifying who your ideal customer is. Create an enticing free offer, and use that free offer to get people to join your email list. Seize the opportunity to market directly to your potential customers by creating and growing your email list. This is one surefire way to grow your business. 

3. Focus

When you focus solely on growing your email list, you are putting processes in place that will bring in huge results for your business over time.

Email marketing has been proven to work time and time again, so invest the time needed to build a solid list. It doesn’t take a lot of time to create your first series of emails. The beauty of email marketing is that it takes the same amount of time to create and send one email as it does to send 500 emails. By automating the process, you will save time, reach a larger audience, and build relationships with your subscribers.

Avoid getting caught up in trying to do too many things at once, and focus solely on building your email list for now. Email marketing is a great way for you to stand out to your audience when you’re starting a business or trying to grow an existing one. Your subscribers are eager to receive your emails, and over time they will begin to see you as an expert in your field. Put time and energy into growing your list, and it will reap endless benefits for your business.

Final Thoughts

We hope these tips help you get focused on starting on your email list building and moving out of research mode .

I think a big reason why I am sometimes distracted and focused on many things is because I’m too afraid of “making a mistake.” But making mistakes and taking chances is what helps you grow as a person.
