Email List Growth
Building a list is the first step in email marketing…

I got to hear Brad Parscale (another Shawnee heights grad #respect) at an event say the number one way to reach prospects is either through texting or with email drips. And he said that in 2019 as the campaign manager for President Trump.  Think about that, they’ve spent millions of dollars in advertising online not just for brand awareness but ultimately to get someone’s email address because they know the value of having your email address in their database.

How should you use your email list?

It all starts with racking your brain around what value can You show to a perspective client and then it’s super easy after that developing a content and email marketing calendar.

The one caveat you must abide by is not sending content out that doesn’t sound like you or your brand. Automation is trendy these days in the tech world, but man you HAVE to make sure it doesn’t sound canned or fake because people can sniff that a mile away. If you have read any of my blog posts you know that yup, Marcus is writing this because it sounds just like him. If someone was to comb through your email marketing, would they know it was from you or sound like it has your brands tone all over it? 

You should at the very least be emailing your prospect list once a month.

We’ve seen great results in crafting content in more of a cross breed of text only emails with a touch of imagery and style around the emails. You also should pay attention to the open rates and see which subject lines have worked well every 3 months. 

An example from Iron Rail Brewing of using a “text-only” style email paired up with imagery.

When’s the last time you or your brand sent out an email?

What’s the data on those been? Sometimes, a prospect may not be needing your service or product at the moment but in a few months they may have had a change where they now need it, the question you have to ask is if they did change their mind, would they see an email from your brand in the last 30 days so that you are top of mind?

About Marcus Rangel


I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.

I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.

When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Topeka, KS.

Would someone come back to your website?

The first thing you have to ask yourself is why would someone come back to your website right?  It seems like 95% of websites are “static” and aren’t frequently updated. The other 5% are making updates and give you a reason to come back, let’s look at why. #1 – There is a blog The tricky thing about this though is that you shouldn’t just call this section on your site “blog,” it should be…

What happens or should happen after someone fills out a form on your website?

The KC Royals had just one the World Series… finally. They have hours, days in fact of footage to get you hyped about the next season and have everyone ready to buy next years season tickets. As a creative team, we had decided to buy season tickets as giveaways to our team and the credit card was in my hands. I guess I was expecting something magical when I clicked the “buy now” button to…

Let’s face it, people are on your site to see you and what your business offers. Photos are essential for a quality website, but here are some examples of what you should be using. A great quality headshot Like my friend Rick above from Sardis Events, this is a great example of a photo you should use.
