Is it possible to build and grow an email list WITHOUT being active on social media?
YES, it is!
Thanks to the insights shared to us from Chantl Martin, Co-founder of Thrive Lounge you can build a raving list w/out being active on social media.
If you expect to just put out good content and hope to attract people to you, then good luck. The "Field of Dreams" approach does not work in today's day-and-age, especially since there is so much content out there to compete with.
What you can do, however, is be proactive by being social. Dropping comments on social media posts from influencers, or dropping comments from posts using targeted hashtags is where the magic happens when seeking to build out an online community.
