Don’t wait. Act now and make use of my Top 3 Tips.

Being an online writer and building an email list goes hand in hand.

Yesterday, I received an email from a new writer.

He told me he knew that an email list is crucial but…

“I don’t know where to start. Do I have to wait until I have enough followers?”

My tip:

Don’t wait until you have enough followers!

Your list is the most powerful asset of your business.

To grow it you don’t need to reinvent the wheel.

You can grow it in the background alongside your writing on Medium.

I grew my list from the ground to almost 1,000 subscribers in 17 months.

My top 3 tips — specifically for writing on Medium:

#1 — Call to action

Ask people to become your subscribers on Medium at the bottom of your stories.

👏Here’s an example:

👉 Join Kristina's 'Online Writing 101' newsletter 📨!
👉 New to Medium? Become a Medium member and support Kristina!

#2 — Lead magnet

Create a freebie in exchange for an email and promote it on your socials.

👏Here’s an example:

My Social Media Content Planner

#3 — Email

Offer people to contact you and then ask them to join your list.

👏Here’s an example:

In my bio on the right side of my profile, I share my business email adress:

On a daily basis, people contact me and ask me questions.

Use these questions and answer them in a blog post or in a newsletter.

Final Takeaways

Now is the time to start and grow your email list.

Not tomorrow. Not when you have X followers. Not in a year.


Within the upcoming weeks, I’ll share more tips and tricks with you.

Additionally, if you’ve come so far… I’ll invite you to a special challenge.

I want to help you grow your email list from:

  • zero to 10
  • from 10 to 50
  • from 50 to 100
  • from 100 to 500
  • from 500 to 1,000
