  3. Hi Eb,
    really excellent guide to ConvertKit. I’m going to be starting my list in about 2 months time and Convert Kit might be the tool I need.
    Still have lots to learn though. The goal is not to just start a list, I also want to master growing it and monetizing it etc…

    Lot’s of work ahead, but it’s all so very exciting!

    1. Thanks, Nikola! So pleased you found my guide helpful. If email marketing is something you are looking to focus on this year then stay tuned as I have lots of help and resources for email marketing planned for 2020! Eb 🙂

  4. HI EB..
    Thank you for the tutorial.. I purchased convertkit through your referral link and did the initial set up on my blog following this tutorial. Thank you for that.. Just a small request could you please share a tutorial on how to add grove form to your blog.

    1. Hi Sushima! So pleased you found my tutorial helpful. And massive thank you for using my referral link 🙂 Thanks for your suggestion to do a tutorial on the grove form. I’ll add that to my list of ideas for future tutorials! In the meantime, don’t forget ConvertKit have excellent customer service. I am sure if you drop them a line, they will happily talk you through how to set it up! Just go here to open a ticket >>> https://convertkit.com/support Eb 🙂

  5. Such a great blog post Eb!! You are an amazing teacher – step by step you spell it out for us! I used your link and signed up with ConvertKit. I spent the day with you and your video and managed to get most of it done including sending my first email using ConvertKit! Unfortunately, I can’t use the Sequences option since it is not available to me. When I have enough subscribers I will upgrade!
    Thanks for offering your wealth of information with us!!

  6. Thanks for this article! I am setting up my Convertkit, and I could not find an article more exhaustive than yours. Thank you so much for writing this!

  7. Amazing post! I just switched from MailChimp to ConvertKit and you’re right, it is so much easier to use. Just a quick question, which form do you have in your sidebar? Mine couldn’t fit :/

    1. Thanks for this lovely feedback Caroline! So pleased to hear you found it useful. I don’t actually use a ConvertKit form in my sidebar – I use the one provided by my theme provider. That said I have used CK forms in my sidebar in the past and they have worked just fine – they automatically resized exactly to the width of my sidebar. The template I used was the ‘charlotte’ inline form. If that doesn’t work, I’d get in touch with ConvertKit for their advice! Eb 🙂
