Hey, welcome to Episode 226 of the Boss Girl Creative podcast. I’m your host Taylor Bradford. I’m excited that you are here, that we are now officially in fall in Texas. I have no idea how long it will stay, but we had a cold front finally pop through and now it is sweater weather, well, sweater weather by Texas standards.
Today we’re going to be talking about setting up your email list. And I’m kind of interrupting the setting yourself apart series because I got super excited about something that I’m going to talk about today.
So, I have been diving down some rabbit holes on some fellow female entrepreneurs. I listened to a recent Amy Porterfield podcast episode where she talked about the day in her life. And she did that for a full week. So, she checked in on a morning and she checked in on an evening and she did that for seven days straight and it was super fascinating to kind of pull back the curtain and see the behind the scenes of her business. And so then it got me going down the rabbit hole of how she built her business etc, etc. And now here we are. And I’m talking about setting up your email list because I went back and located an episode with Amy and Laura Roeder talking about email lists, and specifically this “Golden Page.” And that’s what I’m going to talk about. And full credit to Laura Roeder for bringing this in that particular episode because it’s genius. And it prompted today’s podcast episode, which is going to be me talking about step one through however many steps there are of actually setting up your email list and what is included in my setup process. I’m going to give you my own examples on what is happening when you sign up for my email list.
Before we dive in, I want to take a quick shout out to this week’s community member spotlight, which is Deanna from Dear Summit Supply Co. You can find her at dearsummit.com. You can follow her on Instagram @dearsummit and this is what Deanna’s focus is: she designs response made gear for nature lovers like hiking and National Park theme journals, apparel, stickers, and maps. So if you are a fellow nature lover and you enjoy hiking or visiting national parks, definitely go give Deanna a follow again Dear Summit Supply Co. You can find her website, www.dearsummit.com and follow her on Instagram at @dearsummit. Deanna thank you so much for being a listener and a community member of Boss Girl Creative it’s super, super means a lot to me. And if you want to be featured in an upcoming episode, it is so incredibly simple pop over to BossGirlCeative. com/feature. There’s four questions, answer them and you’ll be in the queue to have a podcast mention. Also, you’ll be featured in that week’s Biz Feature Friday on my Instagram account at @bossgirlcreative and then also a newsletter mention. So fun stuff, fun stuff. Thank you, Deanna, again.
Okay, so let’s talk about setting up your email list. Now, I am going to be speaking from the MailChimp standpoint, because that is what I currently use. And I’ve looked into switching a few times, but I just can’t justify costs outside of what I’m paying MailChimp. So MailChimp it is. So that’s what I’m going to be talking about today. So, when you’re setting up your email list, I’m going to walk you through the things that are important, the things that are going to give you step by step all the way to you creating a drip sequence that’s welcoming to your people signing up for your list.
So, step one is to sign up for an email service provider. Again, I use MailChimp, I’ve used MailChimp for a really long time. It was the first email service provider that I joined or switched over for a hot minute to mad Mimi, but I didn’t like it because I didn’t like that I didn’t have a lot of control on the look and feel of my emails and the templates. And so, I switched back over to MailChimp. I hired mail bakery to create some email newsletter templates for me so it kind of looked branded, and on I went so step one is to sign up for an email service provider.
Step two is to create a list. And mine for Boss Girl Creative is simply called “Boss Girl Creative.” I have multiple lists within MailChimp, so I have one for Sugar Creek, I have one for Boss Girl Creative, I have one for my link party clients, I have one for Taylor Bradford Blog, I have another one for the BC stack 2019. So, I created a brand-new list and had an offering and BC stack. So that’s a separate list. And so anyways, you’re going to create a list and title, so that you can keep track of the different lists that you have within your email service provider. So, create a list, step two.
Step three is creating your signup form. Now with MailChimp, you have three options. One of them is the form builder. And that’s what I’m going to be talking about. The second one is an embed form, it’s a little bit more clunky looking when you actually embed it out to your website. And then if you’re on Genesis Framework via WordPress, you can use the Genesis eNews Extended widget that you can connect some code to. And people will subscribe through that widget and then it will land them on your email list through MailChimp.
So with the form builder, you can use a link. Um, so basically the one that I just talked about that sits below the player of the podcast episode. So if you go to the show notes page, there’s a way to play the podcast through that particular page for that episode, and you can link to your forum, which again will go out to MailChimp to get the process started, you can put it in a post this link, you can put in a post a page, a button, whatever you want to do, and you don’t get that error, which is nice. Okay, step four, is going to be building out your signup sequence. So, I use the form builder to do this. And I am building out the sign-up form itself. And so it’s got my logo and then it quickly says: “Boss Girl Creative podcast teaches women creatives how to stand out in a sea of noise so that they can get more leads, book more clients, generate more revenue, make an impact and create a life they want to be living.” Underneath that is another piece of text that says: “Subscribe, so that you stay in the know with my latest episodes.” And then I’m asking you for your email address and your first name. And that’s all I’m asking, for now. I have heard people say that you just want to collect an email, it shouldn’t matter what else to get from them, you can ask them later on down the sales process. I still want to know their name because I can plug their name into their emails to make it a little bit more personal when they do receive emails from me. So if they don’t give me their name, if they happen to find a form that just asked for their email address somewhere, it’ll say “Hey, friend” and said, uh, “Hey, Deanna”, as an example.
So once you’ve created that initial signup form, that’s a super simple form. You can get more wordy if you want. But I would encourage you just to keep it short and sweet, too, because they’re already interested, they got that far, they’re going to sign up.
Step five is actually going to be building out your thank you page. It’s called a ‘Sign-up Thank You Page’. There’s a ‘Welcome Thank You’, which we’re going to talk about. That’s the Golden Page that I’m really excited to talk about. But you’re going to work out, you’re going to build out your signup thank you page.
So mine is actually teasing, a super-secret surprise. And it’s encouraging them to actually confirm they want to subscribe to my list, which is considered a double opt-in. So I don’t want somebody to subscribe by mistake, so I have double opt-in turned on what that means is they go and they subscribe. But then I say, “I need you to confirm, via the email I just sent you, that you actually want to subscribe.” That just cuts down on the spammers potentially coming into your email list. And really, really gives you a warm lead to talk to because they jumped through the hoops to get on your email list.
So I want to tell you what that particular page says. So I took a screenshot of it so I could read it to you. This is teasing my Golden Page, by the way.
So this is what it says: “I’ve got a super-secret surprise for you. This is a one-time offer kind of deal. You won’t see it anywhere else. As a matter of fact, it doesn’t exist anywhere else, except right here in this email newsletter signup process. So, get to completing this process and boom, like magic, this super-secret surprise is going to appear before your eyes.” And of course, I can’t resist a GIF, so we’ve got one in there.
And then it says “PS, to complete the subscription process, please click the link in the email I just sent you. And then the super-secret surprise will appear.” So I am encouraging them to get through that double opt-in, I want them to confirm because now I’ve got this super-secret surprise that they’re signing up for that they had no clue I was about to offer. This is where your Golden Page happens, you’re going to tease them to that you don’t have to, you can just simply surprise them with the Golden Page. But I wanted to tease it because right now I don’t have a, an actual opt-in just for you signing up for my newsletter. In the future, I would like to create special freebies on the podcast episodes, that would get you on the list.
But I still want you to get to this Golden Page and ultimately what a Golden Page is going to do. It’s like a sales page, you’re giving them something, whether it is a freebie, like an ebook or a checklist or something that you want to create that is super special, or it’s a discount. So for example, what mine is actually doing is combining a masterclass, actually two masterclasses as a bundle. And that’s what I’m about to give for a discount. And it is not an offer that can be purchased anywhere else, they will only see it on this Golden Page.
So step six is actually building out your Golden Page, which is the ‘Confirmation Thank You Page.’ So if you’re in MailChimp, and you’re looking at the different forms that you need to personalize, instead of actually personalizing the confirmation thank you page, you tell MailChimp to send them to a URL instead of sending them this confirmation thank you page. So the URL is a page on your blog that’s not accessible any other way except through this subscription process. So you’ll choose or you’ll select to link it to a standalone page on your blog. Or you can create a lead page on your blog. Either one, this page is your Golden Page, you’re going to create a one-time offer specifically for your subscribers. And it’s going to be something you don’t offer anywhere else. Like they can’t find this offer or discount anywhere else it is super, super special because you want them to get in the process or get in the habit of buying from you.
That is the one thing that is super hard of marketing what we do. If they said they are interested in hearing from you, that means they also want to see what you have to offer. Free stuff and paid stuff. If you think about when you sign up for World Market, for example. Ultimately, why are you signing up for World Market emails? Because you want the discounts you want the coupons. Think of it like that. When somebody signs up for your email list, they want the discounts, they want the coupons, they want the freebie things. They want to hear from you, so go ahead and start giving it to them right out of the gate.
So I’m going to tell you what, kind of, what my Golden Pages made up of. So as soon as they get that email in their inbox that says “Please confirm you actually want to hear from me,” they are immediately redirected like magic to this super-secret page on my website. I hid the post title, so all you see is my logo. You do see my navigation because I’m not running this as a true lead page, I do want them to be able to do something else if they actually choose to. I could go back in and make this a true lead page, so the only thing they’re seeing is my logo and the page itself. That would be smart if you want to hold them on that page. But I wanted to give some additional navigation but I am trying to hook line and sinker them into this super-secret special thing.
So it says at the top: “Boom! Like magic, here you are.” So basically what I’ve done is I’ve teased something super special and boom, now you’re here. And it says: “As a major, thank you for signing up to hear from me (a.k.a. never miss out on an episode or cool stuff I’m working on), I’m bundling up two of my masterclasses and giving them to you for the price of one. Yes, sister to masterclasses for the price of one.” And of course, I had to include another GIF. And then it goes on and kind of talks about what those masterclasses are. There is a purchase button, and I use another GIF that kind of says “Don’t dally, you’ve got this is the only time you’re ever going to get this offer. Don’t dally.” And then at the very bottom, I say, “Okay, here’s what’s next. Join the Boss Girl Creative Facebook group, be a part of my Instagram community, etc, etc, etc.” So, if you want to see that in action, and you have not signed up for my email newsletter list, go do that. Of course, I want to talk to you but only if you want to be talked to from me.
So that step alone had me fired up last night. And I completely changed what was going on with my email signups because I had completely forgotten that I was giving away a checklist. And so, I went through my own process to see what was happening, where things were firing, where it was leading people to—and I’m like, crap, this is terrible. So, I completely overhauled it last night, I was that inspired. And I hope you will be inspired by that.
But we’re not done yet. Now we’re at step seven. This is where you’re going to build out your welcome email or start a welcome email series. So in the form builder, I choose not to send a welcome email, which is different than the confirmation thank you. This is the next step. So, I turned off my system sending out a welcome email because what I’ve got is a campaign running that when somebody does finally confirm being on my email list, my welcome series, which is a three-part email series starts dripping to them.
So, they’ll get an immediate email from me with that first email. A day later, they’ll get email two a day later, they will get email three. And this is broken up into introductions. And truly, I want to make sure they want to be on the list to begin with. So, we’re going to talk about those specific emails that are going out because I hope that will give you some inspiration, or something that inspires you to create something for your own list.
So how you do that in MailChimp? You will say I don’t want to send a welcome email through the form builder, you’re going to select that there’s a button, and then you’re going to go back out to your list and you’re going to click the button that says “Create Campaign.” And then you’re going to select “Email”, you’re going to select “Automated”, you’re going to select “Welcome New Subscribers”, you’re going to give it a campaign name. Mine simply says “Welcome message.” And then you’re going to select the list the welcome message is going to and then it will open up and you will start building out the drip sequence or the workflow of the drip sequence.
So based on triggers, my first trigger is immediately after subscribing. The second trigger for the second email one day after subscribing. The third trigger is two days after subscribing.
So now I’m going to talk about what is in my welcome sequence. So again, they’re all branded, they show my logo, I’ve got this very similar photo popping up at the top.
And the first one is a welcome and it starts off like this: “Hi, first name,” or it’ll say, “Hi, friend,” depending on whether or not I captured their first name. And it goes like this: “I’m beyond honored and grateful that you signed up to be a member of the Boss Girl Creative community, and trusting me to teach, encourage and inspire you to push yourself to get to the next level. But before we take another step closer together, I have to know one thing. Are we in this together or will my emails be a nuisance to you? I know just how precious our inbox spaces and I want to make sure that you legit want to hear from me because I’m in this to help you grow. But I totally get it. If that’s not what you are wanting from me. If I can’t help you, then that’s not going to do either of us any good. Just keeping it real here. Your time is valuable. Let’s make sure I’m not going to waste it.” I actually got inspired by Julie Solomon’s welcome series. So, she was very to the point. And that’s my style. I’m to the point, I’m fluffy in the sense that I give tough love, but with lots of heart. So, I’m direct, I’m to the point, but I am warm in the sense that I do care. I don’t want to waste your time and I only want to talk to those that want to hear from me.
So, it says, “Read on before you make your final decision. Or if you have decided to move on click here to un-, to unsubscribe.” So, I’m giving them an out in that first email. Because it’s important, I don’t want to waste anybody’s time.
So then I go into who I can help most and who I can’t: “There are certain types of boss girls that I tend to get amazing results for. And then there are just some who aren’t the best match for my skill set. I’ve worked with many different creatives. And here’s who I can help the best creative small business owners, bloggers, influencers who are in this to grow big and make an impact in their corner of the world. People who want to establish their brand, monetize their efforts, and are thirsting to take their passions to the next level. Online creatives who want to expand their knowledge, grow their audiences, find their blue person, ideal client reader, discover their why, and show up each and every day striving to make a difference. Amazing humans who want to be successful and live their best lives. And then on the complete flip side, here’s who I just cannot help those that want only the money and have no intention to put in the hard work to grow their brand or foundation, those that are in this just to get famous or win a popularity contest. Those that do not subscribe to the rising tide mentality. Those that aren’t willing to hustle to learn to be resourceful or to put in the work to make their dreams their reality. Let’s be perfectly clear, I believe wholeheartedly in my teachings and the foundation that I’ve built my businesses upon. And the strategies that I impart. If you’re not willing to put in the work, it’s just not going to work out for you. I really hope you fit into that first grouping of those that I can help the best so we can get right into helping you to achieve the dreams and life you want to be living. But I completely understand if my nitty-gritty mentality isn’t your cup of tea. Again, click here to unsubscribe. If you love the idea of seeing where your business can take you and you want an amazing creative strategist who gets you and wants to support you, then let me tell you a bit more about me and what you can expect around here. Who I am: I’m Taylor Bradford, I’m a blogger, influencer, podcaster, creative biz strategist, event designer, event stylist, and multi-passionate entrepreneur. I teach the nitty-gritty of blogging and social media to help you grow your online empire after creating my first blog in 2008, and then diving headfirst into five days a week blogging in 2011 because I was bored out of my mind and living in a hotel three-weeks at a time in Midland, Texas for work. I realized how much I loved the nitty-gritty of everything I was learning at becoming a better blogger. Fast forward to the fall of 2014 when I heard my first podcast and had a blogging education series that had over 40 lessons in it. I knew this was the next medium for me. Boss Girl Creative was born out of my love for teaching my fellow boss girls how to better themselves and their blogs online businesses. The podcast gave me a platform to take what I was teaching in my blogging education series, and add in the passion behind my voice to truly bring my business to life. What I believe, I believe to have a brand that is lasting and successful, these items have to happen first, know your why, set your core values, understand and define your blue person, make time for self-care. Without those four ideals, you will run in circles over and over again. Those four things will give you the foundation you need to succeed and will be your guideposts for making decisions for your business and your blog. Overall, you have to be in charge of your own strategy, and you cannot be in charge of that strategy without those four ideals. What you can expect from me: Each week since July 1, 2015, I have shared a podcast episode with you on Wednesday mornings. (Insider tip: if you are a subscriber of my show through Apple podcasts, you’ll get alerted the moment a new episode lands in your favorite podcasts listening device. And sometimes I release the episodes mid to late on Tuesday night.) I will do my absolute best to share useful and relevant content that will spark ideas and give you inspiration and hopefully push you to take action each and every week in the podcast. I will do my best to show up in your inbox on a weekly basis to chat about the latest podcast episode happenings in the community launches of new products or services and spotlight features of my boss real creative community members. I am absolutely passionate in my quest to help you better yourself as a boss girl and that goes for your business and your life. I am so incredibly honored to have you as part of my boss, real creative community. And I hope my emails serve you in some capacity that push you to be the best version of yourself, for your business and your life. Of course, if there’s anything you want to share as just hit reply, remember, I am here because of you. I’ll be back in your inbox tomorrow to chat about my more ways I can help you grow in your business and life until tomorrow.

Start with Episode 96 if you’re new to the show, and then make sure to listen to a few of my favorite episodes: 179, 175, 146, and 110.”
That is my first email. Yes, it is a beast of an email to get through, but I am setting the stage for what I want my new subscribers to feel, experience, and know.
So, email number two subject line is “Always do more of this.” And it’s styled exactly how the first email was dialed in. This is what it says: “Hi, first name or high friend, High fives for sticking around these parts for a bit longer. I know we are going to become fast friends because I know that you are the type of person who I can best help you get me and I get you. When I think about where you are heading, first name or friend. I know you’re hustling your rear off because you can see so much more for your business blog and yourself and that brings me pure joy, I tell you. I have been running businesses since buying my first investment property when I was 24. Can you believe I became a landlord at the age of 24? I never saw that in my future, but my hubs did. He has been my motivation in so many different areas in life and in business, but I can tell you it’s not been all rainbows and roses over here. You can read my full story here” and it’s an outbound link. “I should be the poster child of resiliency. I’m saying this to you because if I can make my dreams happen, so can you. If I can come up from the bottom of the bucket more than once, then wherever you are in life, pull up your big girl panties and let’s do this thing. If I can, you most certainly can. Do not let your limiting beliefs steal your joy and your dreams.” I’ve got a podcast episode on that, by the way, Episode 157. “Let’s get real here. If you believe in what you are doing, if you are anchored in your foundations, remember from my last email that you needed to know your why set your core values and define your blue person, oh, and make time for self-care, and you are willing to take action, then what you are working towards will become your reality. Which brings me to what you need to be doing more of. Get back to the basics of old-school blogging strategy. Develop and pour yourself into building your brand. Understand and perfect the art of SEO, but know that it’s not just about the robots. Creating a community and support them. Write because you love what you are writing about. Find your passions and let them shine. Surround yourself with people who get you and who are hustling just as hard and as fast as you are—or slow and steady, whichever is your cuppa. Chart your stats but do not be obsessive about them. Strategy is always important, but your foundation has to be at the heart. Invest in yourself and your business. Always do more of this. Always. Once I started doing all of those things, I started to find my rhythm and my brand started blossoming. To be successful in this life, and to truly stand out in the sea of noise that is this online world we’ve decided to make our mark on, you have to be driven and centered in your foundations. Your expectations have to align with reality and your goals. It’s not about numbers, it’s about creating a brand you proud of that has a solid foundation you can stand on. Each week on the podcast, I give you an episode that will provide you with the tools to keep pushing your business and blog forward. Some are nitty-gritty episodes where I’ll ask you to grab a pen and notebook and some will be a bit more fluffy and inspirational. Most all are inspired by my own business journeys because I fully believe in teaching through my own journeys to help you grow no matter how you are currently feeling or where you are currently standing in your business or blog journey, creating what you dream of is so possible, and I’m here to show you the ropes on how to do it. For now, I want to share some of my resources that you can take advantage of like a back catalog with over 175 podcast episodes (which now is over 225), the various ways we can work together one on one, and my SEO course, a few of my favorite podcast episodes (and I list some out), ways we can work together” and I offer a discount code to purchase one of my 30-minute sounding board sessions, 90 minutes sounding board sessions or my four by 60, and also a discount code on my SEO course. And then I need to go in and update this, but I was talking about my weekly podcast segment, “Ask Taylor”, which kind of fell in the water, so I need to update that.
So that makes up email number two. At the very end, I say, “Remember, I’m here to help you grow through the weekly podcasts and one on one strategy sessions until next time, Taylor.”
And then the final email goes like this. The subject line is “Level up. You’ve heard it before, but now it’s finally time.” “Hi, friend, I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “level up” somewhere in your entrepreneurial journey. It’s one of those key phrases that’s supposed to spark you into action of some sort. But what type of action is it really supposed to be pushing you towards? I’ll clue you into this secret: Investing in yourself. Investing in yourself comes in all shapes and sizes. It could mean you downloading a Kindle biz book, check out my podcast episode on the business books I’ve got on my list to read (that’s an outbound link). It could mean enrolling yourself into an online course. It can mean attending a conference, it could mean joining a mastermind, it could mean hiring your first assistant, or it could mean hiring a biz strategy coach. investing in yourself is not a one size fits all strategy and it’s different for every creative entrepreneur. I’ve invested in all sorts of things to keep pushing me forward and to help better myself as a boss girl, but also as a teacher for the show. I’ve invested in business coaches, yes, plural. I’ve had several and hired my first one back in 2011 when I dove into blogging five days a week. I wanted to learn everything I could learn, even back then. I’ve invested in Marie Forleo’s B-School. I’ve invested in courses like Anne Samoilov’s Fearless Launching. I’ve spent time listening to podcast webinars and audiobooks. I’ve taught myself web design through courses because I didn’t want to have to be dependent on someone else to make changes to my website. Investing in yourself, if you are going to be serious in this whole entrepreneur journey you’ve got going on, has to be ‘A Number One Important’ because we can’t grow without keeping our minds open to learning how to better ourselves so that we can get to that next level. Which leads me to why Boss Girl Creative means so much to me. Strategizing one-on-one with you, friend, is why I do what I do. Because it allows me to help you see your greatest potential. It allows me to help you get over your hurdles and struggles. It allows me to help you level up. So, let me help you level up with one of these.” And then I talk about my 30 minutes sounding board strategy sessions: “30-minute call perfect for when you just need a quick problem talked out or idea discussed 90-minute call perfect for when you want to deep dive into a single area of focus and concentrate on implementation and strategy. My four by 60 sounding board sessions are perfectly space over six weeks. And they’re perfect for when you want to get down to the nitty-gritty of what’s holding you back and work through creating the foundation you need in order to push yourself to the next level. Building a brand and taking your business to that next level isn’t just about technical know-how, or creating content to please the search engine robots. Building a brand means you’ve created a solid foundation, you’ve defined your core values, and you know without a shadow of a doubt who your blue person is. And it’s about building a loyal, engaged community around it. Take a peek behind the curtain at some advice I gave to a client and a follow-up email after our one on one session. In order to be super lasting in this industry, you have to build out your brand and make that your focus. So, what is your brand? What is it made of? All related back to me consistently asking you about your why, about your blue person, about your values. A brand is all of those things, every successful brand has that figured out. I think you are so close to figuring out what your brand actually is, but I think it’s going to take some soul searching to figure out how to dig in and define those things. Do I think you need to rebrand? No, I just think you need to make your shift into what you want your brand to actually be and what that’s going to be made of. I wish I could say that you need to do these nitty-gritty things in order to get to the next level. That you need to schedule this many times on so and write this much content and send out this type of newsletter. I’m in the business of teaching the nitty-gritty and not holding back when it comes to getting my audience to the next level. But what I’m asking you to do is super fluffy, the non-ROI tracking things. Again, I think you most definitely have the skill set to really take your business to the next level, but I think you need to revisit your why, your values, and your blue person before you are going to be able to get there. It’s definitely not a matter of the doing, it’s a matter of your foundation and what you really want your blog to be. In a perfect world, what does that look like? So, tell me, friend, is your creative business working but not thriving? Are you feeling stuck with your current ideas of offerings to build your following of engaged and loyal fans, then it’s time. Click here to select the one on one session that works best for you right now. And remember to use the discount code for your first purchase. And let’s get your you to that next level you’ve been dreaming up until next time, Taylor.”
I hope that my email sequence sparks something for you. They are very, very, very wordy but in-depth to the heart of what I am, who I am, and what Boss Girl is all about. I know this was a super intense episode and it was super long. And thank you so much for hanging in there with me, but I think this is something super important.
If you go back to the episode where I talked about setting yourself apart with your email, this is something you have control over. Let’s do something that you have full control over. Let’s get your email newsletter list fully built-out with a welcome drip series, get that Golden Page created with that super-secret special offer, and let’s start building a business that’s making you money.
