Vanessa’s Question: I’m a sex therapist. I offer a suite of online sex therapy programs that help people build the sex lives of their wildest dreams from the privacy and convenience of their own homes. My most popular course is called Finishing School, which teaches women how to have their first orgasm.
Obviously, sex is a very sensitive topic for most people. That’s why I even have a job in the first place! A lot of people tell me they hesitated to sign up for my list for a very long time because they were worried about the kinds of emails that would land in their inbox. I try my best to assuage fears by sharing that I keep my email titles PG, that I keep their information completely confidential on my end, etc, but at the end of the day, there’s still a lot of nervousness about joining my list.
Once they’re on my list, they love it. I get a lot of incredible feedback that my emails are life-changing.
So my question is, how can you list build when you work with a sensitive topic? It’s much easier to fork over your email address in exchange for business tips than it is for orgasm tips!”
