  1. 1) I'm using ConvertKit to capture leads, with a lead magnet
    2) Do you find people are willing to give an email without a lead magnet?

  2. First tutorial I've seen for get response..I use Aweberf. BTW it wasn't obvious what the arrow was pointing to in the beginning when asking to subscribe

  3. AWESOME man I am using instafreebie to grabs emails and give 30% of my book for them to do so. And yes I got my act together on building that email list from your seminars ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Straightforward and with some comedy thrown in. ๐Ÿ™‚ One thing I would add… If you are wanting to build a list , it is important to have a valuable offer so they will give up their name & email. I understand the video is more general, but just pasting a bit.ly link on your social sites may not work as well to get that list popping. Unless, you have an audience already and they are aware that you are going to place a link on the page for them to sign up to whatever it is you are offering.

  5. Thanks for the great video. But at 19$ a month a hosting plan and a wordpress homepage is cheaper it's like 20$ a year i think. I see you are technically were skilled, ever thought of doing a video on how to include a link in a Instagram post? Everything i found was people including a link in their profile but not in a post direct. Could be it can't be done.

  6. Right in the moment: 20.000 subs! ๐Ÿ™‚ Your Videos are great. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am using ConvertKit with a free audio hypnosis download giveaway, and I am using Instapage together for example with a series of free videos bundled in a free online training. The Audio Hypnosis rocks best. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Ok so we open a form and create one. Got that. Where is the "captured" info stored? If i was selling a product can i send the "buyer" to the afiliate page, but keep the list? Sorry for stupid questions but i'm a complete newbie with computers. Thanks in advance

  8. So I have watched alot of videos but still confused on how you get the email list. After you hook all that up and the person subscribes, where does they email info. go? Please help
