Build A Facebook Group To Build Your Email List With Arne Giske From Group Funnels

Our latest guest, Arne Giske is an absolute master of community and conversion, growing a Facebook group of his to over 80k people and making 7-figures along the way.

We’ve always believed that building a community and email marketing go hand in hand, so we just had to get Arne on the show to help show you how to use your own Facebook groups to grow your email list and turn them into those all-important $$$$ we’re all aiming for.

FYI, if you already have a Facebook group and you realise half-way through that you haven’t been following any of Arne’s advice, don’t panic…it’s not the end of the world and we’ll explain why during the episode.

Show Notes and Blog: www.TheEmailMarketingShow.com

Businesses of all sizes know that despite all of the latest fads in social media marketing, chat bots and pixels, the one thing that consistently gets the highest return is email.

With email you own the data, you can segment and put the right message in front of every person and build deep, personal relationships.

But clicking 'send to all' is DEAD.

People get far too much irrelevant email. In this show Rob and Kennedy blow the cobwebs off antiquated email marketing and give it a ruddy good shake up.

On alternate weeks the guys are joined by a guest who shares their own approaches to email marketing.
