The List-Building for Bloggers Master Course

Discover how to REALLY build your mailing list, nurture your subscribers, and catapult your blog to success!

Are you struggling to build your mailing list? Do you spend too much time on list-building techniques that are just not working for your blog? Are you unsure how to nurture the subscribers you do have? Or, worse yet, are you afraid to "bug" your subscribers and never even email them?

What if, instead, you could build an awesome mailing list, connect with your readers, and earn an income from your efforts?

Imagine how it will feel to turn your blog into a mailing list machine, getting subscribers as you sleep. Imagine being able to reach YOUR readers anytime, without worrying about Facebook algorithms, SEO rankings, or Pinterest updates. Imagine being able to monetize your mailing list and your blog... all while providing your readers with things they love.  

I cracked the code on turning visitors into subscribers to build a mailing list from 0-10,000 subscribers in under 6 months on a new blog. This allowed me to earn a full-time income only nine months after I started my mailing list. I attribute over $24,000 of the income I earned in 2017 (my first full year of blogging) to my powerful mailing list. Just three years after starting my blog, I am now a seven-figure blogger ... and I attribute this to the power of my mailing list!

Here's what my first year's growth looks like (each bar indicates the total number of new signups per month):

I'm now at nearly 80,000 subscribers and my mailing list isn't even quite two years old yet. The income I generated in 2018 from my mailing list is well into the six figures! My blog and my entire life have been forever changed by my ability to build a mailing list and nurture my subscribers. 

Here's what my second year's list growth looks like:

Here's the big picture chart showing how my list has grown from January 2017 to September 2019:


“I was slowly growing my list since I started my blog in 2016 but it was pretty slow and sporadic. I started List Love not knowing what to really expect. Jennifer was using craft templates and tutorials as her blog's opt-ins and I didn’t know if that would translate to my niche of starting a business. I am so glad I took the chance! Not only is Jennifer an excellent teacher but her technique translates to any niche. With the help of List Love, I have quadrupled my list in the last four months [from 1000 to 4000 subscribers] and it is growing every day!”

“List Love is a very helpful course and I enjoyed it a lot! I started implementing it on October 1st and now, 4 months later, I have already almost doubled my main email list! And I'm so happy about this!  

The strategies recommended by Jennifer are easy to put into practice and effective. What I loved most about this course was the support that Jennifer has provided to all her students. She is a wonderful teacher and I appreciated the way she was committed to helping us implement the course and getting great results. I would recommend this course to any blogger who wants to focus on building a great mailing list.  

Thank you, Jennifer, for creating this course and helping me find the best strategy for growing my email list!

Learn from someone who has been where you are.

I created the LIST LOVE master course because I’ve been where you are. So let me tell you my story. I started my DIY & Craft Blog ( in October 2016. My first three months of blogging were a long, slow slog. I struggled to get posts out because it seemed like there was SO much to do—research ideas, photograph projects, edit photos, write posts, make promotional images, actually promote my posts. Ugh! Sometimes I wasn't sure what to even write about, and it was so hard to get people to visit my blog. I was doing ALL THE THINGS, but my growth was really, really slow.  

Because I was so frustrated, I began learning everything I could about blogging. I kept coming across advice about how my blog should have a mailing list. At first, I thought it was just yet one more thing I had to do, and it was overwhelming to even think about. But I kept reading it, over and over, from bloggers who had "made it." 

So at the end of that third month (January 2017), I began my mailing list. And I immediately began learning HOW to build a mailing list, because it's not as simple as slapping up a "subscribe to me" form on your blog. (Tried that, didn't work.) I researched, tested, and experimented. When I found something that worked, I did more and more of it. I continuously refined and focused until I had my own little formula that was working!

Within six months, I had built my mailing list to 10,000 subscribers!

Soon after this, I developed and launched my first product, a crafters' design course for my DIY & Craft Blog. I promoted my course to my mailing list, and only my mailing list, as a test. It was my first launch and I admit I was a little nervous! But the launch to my mailing list, which was now 13,000 subscribers strong, was a huge success and I earned over $12,000 just from that launch ... all thanks to my mailing list. Without that list, I probably would have been lucky to make a few hundred bucks and wasted a whole lot of effort.

By the end of my first full year of blogging, I calculated that my mailing list (which was at that point more than 20,000 subscribers) had earned me $24,548 through it's power to promote my products, my affiliates, and my blog itself.

Amazing. I still am pinching myself.  

But the real joy here for me, is not the money. It’s that now, because I learned how to turn my readers into subscribers, I now have an AMAZING community of people around me. I can ask them any question and they'll respond. I can start a Facebook group and they'll come join me. I can issue a challenge and they'll rise to it! They can make nearly any endeavor successful because there are so many and they are so engaged. And that is a feeling like none other.  

You can do this, too. And I can show you how.  

"Jennifer’s list building strategy was different than any I had learned about before. It just made so much sense! I implemented her strategies and 3 months after launching my site I was close to my first thousand subscribers, averaging 15-25 new sign-ups per day on minimal traffic!”

Jennifer has nailed my style of learning. I need actionable steps and I need them in order. Without knowing what I need to conquer first, I get lost and overwhelmed. Not only has she mastered the step-by-step approach to teaching but she also offers a personal approach. I love knowing that I can ask any question, at any time, and get an answer. She is obviously committed to the success of her students; it shows with everything she does!"
