list buildingThis blog course is designed to help you get more email list subscribers. When it comes to list-building there are certain things that we must have in place for it to work. If you missed Part 1 of this 4 part series, click here to get caught up.

Week 1 was focused on making some decisions about your list building tools. We looked at where you are, what tools you are using, and what freebie you are giving away in exchange for email addresses.
