paul-teague-authorAuthor and digital marketer Paul Teague will show you how to add targeted, genre-specific readers to your email list using InstaFreebie, at a cost of less than 2c per lead.

Using InstaFreebie takes all of the guesswork out of finding new audiences, writing high-converting ads copy, creating eye-catching images and all the other headaches (and expenses) which come with using Facebook and Amazon ads. As a new author, you need to start shifting books – and fast – without the delays and additional costs of advertising campaigns. It also helps if learning how to use a new marketing strategy doesn’t feel like you’re taking a 3-year university degree!

    I really enjoyed your presentation, Paul! I’ve been dreading setting up an email list, but after you made this simpler today, I decided to take the plunge and set up an author account on Instafreebie. Alas, I got snagged with an email issue when trying to sign up for mailerlite, however. Now I’m back to scratching my head over how to proceed, so I don’t know if I’ll get this going or not. It seems mailerlite wants me to have an official .com email account via my author website, but my site forwards any email sign-ups to my gmail account (which I’ve begun using for only business. (I can have a .com account with my author site if I pay, or try their ShoutOut service). I have a .com account with my artist website, but this is going to be complicated if I begin mixing everything up and have 4 email accounts…

    So anyway, I was excited about starting and now I’m grounded again. If you happen to have any reference links that might point me in the right direction to straighten this out, I’d appreciate it so much!

      Hi Pamela, you have to have that bespoke email address I’m afraid. It’s all connected with spam and domain names – in very simple terms, if we all used gmail/hotmail/sky email addresses we could completely wreck mailerlite’s good email delivery records and mess up their business.

      You’ll find this to be the case with all reputable email marketing services.

      It’s just a cost of doing business, you’ll have to find a way around this if you want to use email marketing.

      I would recommend getting a cheap hosting package like … that allows you to build your own website and have unlimited email addresses on your domain name.

      If you check out my book WordPress Unboxed/P.Teague I show you how to set up the bespoke emails within a Siteground account as well as how to build a website on WordPress 🙂
