At that point my list was relatively small, between 1500 and 2500. As soon as the event organizers heard that, they told me they thought my list would be bigger at the stage of business that I was at and told me to come back to them in a couple of years. I found that really hard at the time. Now I don’t let that kind of stuff get to me anymore.
It doesn’t pay to only look at numbers. It’s not about the numbers. It’s about the relationship you have with the people on your list. I got to 6 figures in business with an email list size of just 600 which is considered tiny, but those 600 people had put their hand up to receiving something from me.
You don’t have to be at the Holy Grail of 5000 list subscribers to have a successful business.
I’d love to know your thoughts. Please don’t hesitate to comment below.
