how to build your email list with 0 audience

Focus on building contents that brings value to your audience. Content that they do not know yet. You have to give them a reason of wanting to keep coming back to you. You have to create that connection.

Attract - laugh - convert.

In order to attract your audience, when you are not famous and nobody knows you, be shooting to all the social medias - YouTube, TikTok, Instagram, Instagram Reels, YouTube Shorts. Be able to create contents of 12 or 14 minutes, where you gotta structure everything this way: - this is strategy that I will apply if you are trying to ... - strategy 1 - strategy 2 - ... - strategy 10 - Do not give away in the video that you're ending, that the video is over. This will increase your watch time on YouTube. We will just drop it, and leave you, and they're not going to finish listening.

On YouTube do a long-term content. Then, take 30 seconds of each of them, like 10 clips of 30 seconds, and use that and recycle them on the Instagram Reels, and put them on TikTok. So, you never have to be creating short-term content. Because, Instagram only values recency. Meaning that they're only going to be showing to a new audience the videos that you do in the day that you're off, not yesterday. Unless you're promoting them. But, YouTube can show your videos like from five and ten years ago.

Focus on how to leverage your time, and how to build contents that actually help your audience.

After a visitor has closed your popup, make sure that it does not appear again while your visitor is navigating through your site.
