Building an email list is essential in online business.
If you don’t already have an Autoresponder – GET ONE! – see previous post about autoresponders.
Once you have one its all about content.
Even if you are selling products – make sure you collect email addresses
Offer something for free if they sign up – make sure it is quality and relevant to your business.
- Answer their ‘what’s in it for me?’ question
- Don’t have too many input fields
- Make it clear what they get – how often and what kind of newsletter?
- CTA’s must be more than just ‘subscribe.’
Growing your email list clearly does not have to be expensive. There are countless of little things you can implement here and there to collect plenty and relevant emails.
I have offered you a few tips in this post. The goal is not to try and put EVERY email list building strategy into effect – just those that make the most sense for your business, your style, your writing goals… and your sanity.
All of the things I have gone through in this post are great ideas and experiences I have made, and I know for sure that they will help you to effectively grow your email list and keep your email marketing budget intact.
You should spend that hard earned money on something else when you can do some tweaks here and there and collect valuable, relevant emails without investing anything but your own time and patience.
