I want you to be a bit intimidated by this article. Why? Too many times we think of social media as making a post.

I know you get tired of me on the soapbox. So here is Courtney Donahue Foster on HER soapbox. She’s a FACEBOOK guru but she’s promoting email marketing as a necessary alternative. So if you aren’t emailing your clients, call me today! Let’s get started!
Her recent email said –
“Imagine a marketing platform not limited by a newsfeed algorithm.

And if that doesn’t thrill you right now, I want to change that.
Because at the end of the day, you don’t own your Facebook likes, your YouTube views, or your Instagram hearts.
But you do own your mailing list.
And if you’re in this entrepreneurship thing for real, if you’re ready to hike up your big kid business pants and start using strategies that stick, you need to build something you own.”
