How to use #TipTuesday to Nurture Your Current Email List PLUS Add Some New People to Your Email List!

Tip Tuesdays are the PERFECT day to share some VALUE with your audience as well as an opportunity to funnel in some NEW LEADS to your list!

The Power of Tip Tuesday

Why share a TIP every Tuesday? Because it's a simple yet impactful way to serve your audience. It builds trust, positions you as an authority on a topic & keeps your brand in the spotlight!

Serve by Sharing

Worried about giving away too much for FREE? Don't be 🙅🏼‍♀️ Sharing valuable information is an act of service that often leads to increased customer loyalty AND sales.

nurture email list new leads

Let's start with some ideas of what you can send to your CURRENT email list (people that are currently on your list can include: customers, former customers & LEADS aka potential customers that never ordered yet)

*it is best practice to have your email list segmented so that you can send targeted messaging to certain people. In this case potentially a certain email to customers vs. people that never ordered

Email Ideas:

The “THREE” email 

3 {tips, ways, hacks} to ____ (insert goal) 

Find & share 3 quick valuable hacks or tips to do help people hit their goals, get wins, save time, etc. 

*There are TONS of ideas on Pinterest! Think: New Year goals that people are working on; organization, fitness, etc; What TIPS can you share to help?!

The “I didn’t want you to miss this!” email

Did you recently post something that’s a “do not miss” piece of content? Maybe you hosted a webinar or event that people can catch on the replay? You can use an email as a way to remind people & share the link to the information.

**great for podcast episodes too! 

The “did you know?” email 

OMG, did you know that you can XX with XX?! 😱

Great for sharing a tip or hack that you just recently found or saw OR something that you know how to do that you’re always sharing with others 👏🏻 again GREAT for New Year content!


Writing Your Email:

Start with a SUBJECT LINE that gets them opening:

  • Don't _____ everyday! (do this instead)

  • Are you making this mistake, {first name contact}

  • I've never done this before {first name contact}

  • 3 ways to _____, {first name contact}

  • The secret to _____ a killer _____!

Add in the BODY of the email that you choose... remember VALUE forward!

Options to CLOSE OUT the email:

  • do you have a sale or PROMO going on?

  • maybe you're launching something to kick off the new year?

  • maybe you want feedback on something?

People don't know, unless you ASK! So add in a little PS. "Real quick while I have you, did you see....."


Want to ensure that even MORE people see your email from above?!

Layer it with a SMS (text) message!

Text messages have a 99% open rate contrary to emails which average about 15-20% (they are often overlooked 🥴)

Send a text message letting your subscribers know that you just sent them something valuable!

Option #1: send as just a text message; shorten it up! Sweet and to the point! Basically a shorter version of the email.

Option #2: send in addition to the email; you can let them know that you just sent some amazing-ness to their inbox!

"I just sent you some of my BEST New Year hacks to your email, wanted to make sure you didn't miss them!"

**start the text with a good HOOK!

  • Tired of (problem)?

  • I bet you don't know this hack!

  • Most people won't tell you....

  • Why is no one talking about....


Now let's talk using #TipTuesday to get some NEW Leads (aka people) on your list!

Here's the process:

First: Come up with a niche related tip (hack, recipe, workout, etc) *examples below

Then: Create some content sharing the tip with a call to action to get the other tips you have!

At the end of your post, give a call to action "That was just one of my tips to help you keep those New Years resolutions! Want my other 6 tips that have my friends dropping that holiday fluff, comment TIPS below "
