Dustin Stout and I discuss the pros and cons of various email platforms and how to streamline the process of gathering emails. He gives us tips and tricks to produce the most effective lead magnets and how to come up with ideas on what to create that will interest your target audience. I learned some interesting things about what kinds of lead magnets are working right now and how we can serve our audience and keep them interested in our brand and products.

Memorable Quotes from Dustin:
- “Ask yourself, ‘Where are these people finding me? What reason are they finding me for?’ You can almost always come up with a better, more in-depth solution for them.”
- “Don’t feel like you need to create the one magic thing that people will come to your site for and everybody will want.”
- “I’m just saying, ‘if you like this, get on my email list and I’ll tell you when I add to this.’”
- “Stop assuming people are going to see your opt-in on your sidebar. Get rid of the free updates thing.”
- “Find your top performing content and get a content upgrade on those pages or posts.”
- “Make it easier, make it quicker, make a checklist, make a pdf version of a blog post.”
- “Stop NOT emailing these people!”
