Everything you post online should have a reason.

The reason is building a list.

If you write a forum post, it should help you build your list.
If you make a video, it should help you build your list.
If you record an audio, it should help you build your list.

Email marketing is the most effective way to market online.
But you can't send email to someone unless they're on your list.
Which means they have to opt-in.

All of your content should be designed to bring people into your marketing funnel.
Most of them won't buy the first time they see you.
In fact, most won't ever buy from you at all.

Yet you can greatly improve your chances of making a sale if you have a way to keep in touch with them.
That's why building your list is so important.

If your whole business were to crash and burn, and you were left with only your list, you could recover.

It's easy to set up a new funnel.
Rebuilding your list would be almost impossible.

Ask yourself this every time you post something online:

"Will this help me build my list or bring a prospect into my funnel?"

If it won't, tweak it til it will.

Your bank account will thank you.
