I Have a Subscriber!!!

And it's somebody I don't even know!

When I joined WF a month and a half ago, I didn't even have a list. Okay, I do have one list, but I've never been able to monetize it... Anyway, I've had other lists in the past, many years ago, and never got anything out of them. I probably didn't use them effectively.

A week after joining WF, I learned about Aweber and signed up. I started a list for one of my sites, and immediately got 1 subscriber. But, that was someone I knew, so I kind of feel like that doesn't count. Not that he's not an important subscriber, but it's not like a total stranger just up and signed up.

Later, I bought a ready-made website (WSO), then some PLR articles in the same niche (WSO) and put up a new website, mid-August. I used an eBook as a freebie if you sign up for the list. Got some incoming links, even tried some ads on AdWords. Nothing. No signups at all.

Last weekend, I revamped the site and content, converting it to a WordPress blog. Not sure if that's had any impact, other than it makes it easier for me to promote.

Now, today, I got my first subscriber! Yay! It's so exciting.

    I remember my first one ... I was certain that my mail server had screwed up and sent the message to the wrong person!

    Treat that subscriber, and the ones that follow with the respect worthy of your new best friend and you're on your way!
