I continue to get people accepting my invites to my email marketing list. The response rate is above 25% which continues to surprise me. I also sent out a special extra email to my list about the online networking group Steve and I are starting. Got 7 initial responses which I think is quite good for the size of my list. I also think the people following me from the networking groups are prone to get excited by email subject lines like “New Networking Opportunity”.
The list is big enough that I’m seeing value in using it as a source of customer research and I’ve gotten some valuable responses to questions I’ve asked so far. This is very exciting.
