    Building a list and getting people to subscribe has been a challenge. I think that continuing to write content that is appealing to my readers will build that base. What kind of opt-in gift do you recommend?

    I will be honest I don’t sign up for any lists. No newsletters, no emails nothing. I find them a tad annoying so I haven’t bothered and I’m doing pretty well. I may venture into it at some point but I am just not a fan at all!

    Building your network and creating solid outreach lists is integral to growing in this industry. I just wish it didn’t require such obtrusive measure to my readers. I fail on this aspect because I don’t want to use pop ups and ‘buy throughs’ just to access content. For now I am content with the small steady organic growth of word of mouth. However, I would LOVE to grow my professional network.
