I am going to start blogging and have an email capture form in the sidebar offering a freebie to try to build my list. Of course I want both the blog post and emails to be high quality, but every now and then you'll right a "gem" of an article. Is this best served being emailed to your list or posted on your blog? Basically should you prioritise your list or blog for your best work?
My thought was the blog, as good content would likely be shared which could potentially build the list. However I don't want the list to feel there is more value in my blog than the emails. Any thoughts?!
On a side note, as a newbie I am trying to create a list in a non IM niche so I can learn the trade and eventually start targetting IM once I know what I am doing. It baffles me that so many newbies attempt to crack the IM niche before they even know what they are doing and surely this shows in the info they provide their blog/list. Could this be a reason why so many people fail early on?
