Let your subscribers into your life
People connect with people. One of the best way to come up with endless ideas for emails is to share interesting things that happen to you.
You could talk about the time your dog got into a fight with the labrador down the street or when you accidentally got locked out of your house.
So why would you do this? To build trust and rapport with our readers. However, there’s another important ingredient you need for this to work.
Share valuable lessons with your subscribers
