Why is having a continuously growing email list so important to both your business and your impact as a nature photographer? This is a really, really important question to be asking.

Even if you are an amateur photographer, or you’re barely getting started; even if you’re a pro who primarily does assignment photography; even if you don’t yet know why on Earth you’d use a list or what on Earth you’d email about, you absolutely need to be building an email list right now.

If you’re going to implement one single strategy that all marketers know is critical to success, I hope you implement a mailing list. It will make a difference in your reach, your efficacy, and even your income. By the end of this webinar you’ll know exactly what makes an email list so valuable, and you’ll know exactly how to get yours up and running with gusto.
