Using email to market your web-writing business is a smart, effective strategy. But it’s also a strategy with a lot of moving parts.
Not to worry. Once you know what all the parts are, they are easy to manage. And, when you launch your own e-letter, you’ll enjoy a number of benefits.
You’ll build valuable skills, cultivate promising leads, land more projects, and keep your work calendar exactly as full as you want it. This is a Goldilocks strategy. When you implement it correctly, you’ll never have too much work or too little… your workload will always be just right.
And that means you’ll be able to enjoy your free time more, take breaks — even long vacations — when you want to… all while earning the income you desire… and knowing exactly how to earn more when you need to.
In this Roadmap Tutorial, you’ll learn everything you need to know to launch and maintain an e-letter strategy for your web-writing business.

One of the easiest, smartest ways you can do that is through email messages called autoresponders.
