Ready to Create a Life You Love??

It's time you confidently walk around with a clear vision knowing your light radiates, your voice matters, and the dream inside you is yours to cultivate and bring to life.

Ok friend, I want to start the conversation around email marketing.

Things are shifting in the digital business space no matter if you are selling your own courses or you are in Network Marketing. If you haven’t looked into email marketing, now is the time.

For years I have heard leaders and gurus preach that the only thing you have to worry about when it comes to building your business online is….

Social Media.

… and while yes, many are able to make money online without a website or email list, I want to ask you one question.

What happens when social media has a blackout or if your account gets hacked?

Then what?!

Over the last few years I have watched women with just a few hundred followers (who make good money from their social media) and influencers with over 100,000 followers… lose their account overnight.

Some have shared they lost major brand deals (aka how they make money online and pay their bills) because they weren’t able to post when they were contracted.

The truth is, there is no way to control social media. You have to think of it as rented space. It’s not yours, which is why I looked into email marketing.

When I first learned about email marketing, I was in my 2437 Network Marketing business, and I knew this could add so much value to my customers. At the time, leaders in the industry were preaching to focus on building social media. I played around with email marketing, but didn’t commit to it because I didn’t have a clear vision with how to add it into my business.

This is why I created my Self-Discovery call.

I talk with women every day who feel stuck and lack the clarity they need to move forward in building a business they love. Friend, you are not stuck, you just don’t trust yourself. Together we can use the power of your human design to get to know how you best make decisions (important for business and life), and gain clarity on where you want to go!

ok, but can we keep chatting about emails and why they are legit?

I was recently on a call with Flodesk and Jen, the founder of TONIC (my favorite website templates ever), and a fire was lit under my butt. I loved hearing about why her #1 focus for her business is email marketing.

Jen has over 30,000 subscribers on her list. Tell me email is not dead without telling me email is not dead. She is all about writing emails that people actually want to read.

I’m going to be bold here and say, “ I think when you are done reading this we will be welcoming you to the email marketing club.”

Let’s nerd out and get technical for a minute.

There are 361.6 Billion emails sent daily. I’ll let that number sink in for a minute.

Email marketing has the highest ROI (Return on Investment.) Get this, for every $1 you spend you get $42 dollars back. To give you a little reality check, Instagram has an ROI of $3.50 and TikTok is a whopping $2.60. If you are not getting your shoes on and running to the store to buy an email marketing platform, I don’t know what to tell you.

(Well, except, you don’t need to go anywhere because with a simple click you can get 50% off your first year of my favorite email provider, Flodesk plus get a 2 week trial.)

Maybe you are thinking, Lacie that’s cool and all, but I am being bombarded with robotic like emails every 👏 single 👏 day. It’s exhausting, and I don’t want to add to the problem if I decide email marketing is for me.

Here is a simple fix to the robot email problem:

”Stop writing like a weird robot human”

In a world where we are craving human connection more than ever, write like a human. Email marketing is an amazing way to build relationships. You can make your emails a place where you inform, educate, inspire, entertain and relate. It all depends on how you want to show up for your clients.

I personally love to have deeper conversations or share what random things have happened to me, and how I can relate it back to a lesson in life or business.

Jen is now known as the girl who sends weird and long emails to her subscribers every Friday.

… and the best part, you don’t even have to wear pants to write emails. Just play around with your style of writing, and what you want to share, and hit SEND!

If you remember one thing, ditch the pitch from the marketing bros and how you should write emails, and have fun. It’s time to take off our bra, and let our hair down. Email marketing doesn’t need to be all stuffy and boring. When you let go of the “shoulds”, and start trusting yourself in how you want to show up for your people, watch your business grow.

shameless plug… if you haven’t joined the inbox club, let’s become inbox besties 👯‍♀️
I am so excited to continue to learn, build relationships, and serve you! Listen, I am not perfect, and I am learning as I go with building a business that is in alignment with me, so if you want to real real… let’s be friends.

so hot right now

I’m Lacie Jaye, your online bestie who is here to cheer you on!

I love talking all things life AND business with a side of spiritual woo woo magic because I believe the spiritual is just as important as the physical. We like to take a "whole ass" approach when it comes to life.

Buckle up, you are in for a ride.
