From Facebook to Instagram it can be deceiving to think you're communicating with your audience every day. But does everyone see all your posts? Doubtful.
What will you do if one of your favorite social media platforms closes its doors or changes it's algorithm? You will lose your entire follower base. That's why it's important to properly work your digital marketing plan and leading your followers to your own email list.

The Importance of Email Marketing
As you build your brand, you’ll also want to build your audience. You will build your audience on multiple platforms, from your social media pages to your website and also with building an email list.
But why do you need an email list? Can’t you just post on your social media pages? The fact of the matter is that email marketing is not dead and should be an integral part of your overall digital marketing strategy. Like I always say, the email list is yours, a social media page is technically not.
Not everyone will see your social media posts (dang algorithm!), and not everyone will remember to come back to your website to see your latest post, but everyone checks their email.
When it comes to email marketing your engagement should be your highest priority. You can measure by watching your open rates and your click-through rates. This will tell you if you’ve built up an active email list. The more active, the more cha-ching. I personally use Kajabi to build my online course and email lists. It's a one-stop-shop.
