It’s Fall of 2014.

Basically I still don’t know what the heck I am doing.
and the Fitness Biz wasn’t going anywhere for me.

On November 9, 2014 I decided it was time to “quit” or “give up” the Beachbody Coaching Idea, Although, When I did this – there was a little voice in the back of my head that said but you can try again after 6 months…

Fall - Moving Forward

Now What

I still had my shop and I had my new website fully paid for a year.
With no other funds, was where I decided to be promote DelLillians the shop and the pattern store on Craftsy.

I turned my attention to my E Mail List and back to Quilting

  • An Email List important if you are doing business on the web.
  • An Email list is yours.
  • It isn’t controlled by some dude in an office changing algorithms.
  • You get to contact your subscribers directly and whenever you choose.

With that said an Email List comes with a ton of responsibility and shouldn’t be taken lightly.

I can offer those words of wisdom because I learned it the hard way. (more on that later)

How do I get people to sign up for my newsletter?

I thought having that little subscription form on my website was enough…
But it isn’t.

I researched and learned about different ways to build your list.
I decided to give away one of my quilts.
Making a quilt, to just giveaway. That is my favorite thing to do with quilts. Click To Tweet

I did the contest to give away a quilt and collected email addresses through my Lead Page source, which integrated with Mail Chimp. Nifty It worked beautifully!
Journey Quilt
That was SO much fun. Not only did a give a quilt away, but I learned a ton of stuff about lead pages.

Some of my followers jumped on the bus here 🙂
