How To Build Your List by Speaking At Events Online and Offline

Events can be an amazing way of building your email list, but are you taking full advantage of them?

If you’re taking part in any sort of event from a virtual summit to someone else’s Facebook Live, to speaking on stage, you should be using these as opportunities to build your own audience.

But how can you do this successfully and more importantly, authentically? 

In today’s episode, we’re going to go through many of the effective ways you could be using these events to build those all-important email lists of yours.

  • (03:07) Using events to build your list can be so powerful…but only if you make sure to not do the following annoying thing that we’ve seen so many people do. 
  • (04:38) A very basic but utterly crucial point that you need to remember if you’re serious about building your list at events.

  • (09:43) A super simple way of letting people access your information.

  • (18:44) Kill two birds with one stone with this one.
