Oh hey there, I′m glad you're here!
And if you're on the hunt for some top-notch email marketing strategy and conversion copywriting tips - you've come to the right place!
So let’s be honest with ourselves: we don’t have unlimited attention spans.
We can only focus on so much.
We can only consume so much.
We want to get to the punchline, the moral of the story or the next step — clearly and efficiently.
When you sit down to write an email for your audience, whether a broadcast or a whole sequence automation, do you ever think to yourself…
There’s so much to say, but I don’t know where to start?
I want to get my point across but worry I’ll only confuse people?
How do I know if this will be helpful?
Is this email going to do what I hope it will do?
I hear you. Everyone has those thoughts at least once (usually several times!) when creating email content.
What can you do?

If you want to write clear emails — and make it easy for your readers to act — before you write your next email, ask yourself:
“What is the One Big Idea of this email?”
“What do I want someone to do, think or feel at the end of this email (or email sequence)?”
These questions force us to clarify our message and get to the point. This doesn’t mean we can’t share multiple stories or examples within one email, but it helps make sure that they all add up and give further impact to the One Big Idea.
Because if you share too many ideas in ONE email, your reader won’t remember what’s most important.

To get those creative juices flowing, here are some “one big ideas” that I use when I sit down to craft my next email for my email list:
Explain how using this one tool will help improve the writing process
Add value to my readers’ inbox by sharing a new resource that’s available on my site
Introduce my private Facebook group and encourage my readers to join, so they can benefit fromthe community of like-minded people
Share some of my personal stories, so I can build credibility with new readers
Address a common objection my audience has (that’s holding them back!) and coach them through it with stories and application
In this post you’re reading…
My One Big Idea is to encourage you that you don’t have to answer EVERY question or relay ALL of your wisdom in one email. You can have a memorable impact on readers by focusing your email content on One Big Idea.
Leave a comment and let me know: What One Big Idea will you use for your next email? What do you want your subscribers to think, do or feel?
If you’re not welcoming new subscribers and pointing them in the direction of your best, most beloved content — or you feel like the one you have isn’t doing the trick — it’s time we fix that. Use this free 5-part framework to make a meaningful & lasting first impression as you write your first welcome sequence for new email subscribers!
FYI : I sometimes talk about and link to tools, sites, books, and resources that I LOVE. Sometimes those companies give me a little gift for sharing if you choose to purchase something through my affiliate link. I promise to be straightforward with you and to only share things I personally use and would vouch for 100%.
