Create Your List: Overview and First Step

Why Should I Worry about List Building?

Your email list should be a list built organically. This means people are joining your list because they know, like, and trust you. And a list like this has a greater potential to buy from you in the future. With Kartra you have the ability to create multiple lists.

This allows you greater ability to focus on that list's particular interests, which helps you keep track of your Leads by putting them together in easy-to-access groups. So you may want to create a list for those interested in your webinar training, and another for those who have bought it. You may have a list for those interested in your product creation training and another for those buyers.
