Little Pearls of Wisdom

  • [01:45] Email builds trust and personalization makes people more likely to shop with you.

  • [04:00] The light bulb went off and I wanted to see what would happen if I created freebies and nurtured relationships with my community via email.
  • [05:45] Over the last year or two, my engagement on Instagram has been plummeting.
  • [07:30] My email list is a place where I send thoughtful and valuable information each week.
