8 ways to build up your email list fast!
Email List Tips
Building an email list is the key to building a successful online business.
If you are looking for ways to boost your email list or you don’t know how to go about building an email list, then this article will teach you how.
1. Use what is in your hand
Your family and friends are your first point of contact. They are a great way to start. Tell them what you’re up to and let them know they’ll get a freebie by signing up to your email list. You may not know who they know (I mean, you might get a referral from them).
Pro tip: Trust me; you will get a lot of support and encouragement.
2. Your business contacts
You may have lost contacts, but your business colleagues can be a great way to expand your reach. They might be a good source of referral. Don’t be shy to tell them to sign up on your email list.
3. Join networking groups.
Check your local area to see if there’s any relevant group. Go along with them. Have a chat with ‘those’ that matter. Let them know the benefits of signing on your email list. You might generate more leads that way.
4. Offer a free talk.
I know, not everyone one of us like to give a public talk. However, for the sake of your business and the growth of your email list, it is a wise step to take.
Offer a free talk at your networking group and ask people to sign up on your email list.
Make them know the amazing bonuses they’ll get by signing up with you. That way, you will get more people on board (to your email list).
Pro tip: Don’t forget to leave sign up forms or cards. Ensure they fill it!
5. Take advantage of social media
Social media is a nice way to stay in touch with your existing subscribers and reach out to new ones. If you’re not yet using social media platforms like, Face book and Twitter to build your email list; then, you’re really missing out.
I have some friends who have grown a list of over three thousand through Face book marketing alone.
Set up a Face book Fan page Invite your friends to come join and ensure you post at least, two to three informative contents every week.
Set up a Face book Ad to promote your page. After getting a reasonable amount of people join your page, tell them to go check out your site and sign up with you. Offer them a time sensitive offer. They will end up opting in much more quickly.
6. Don’t be a clown– limit promotional emails and offer more value.
Your customers are not stupid. They are human beings. They will sense your personality if you send more of promotional emails. Don’t let your subscribers picture you as a ‘make money fast’ person.
Offer more quality content and limit your promotional emails. Blend the two together.
I mean, limit promotional emails to less than 10% and try to blend your affiliate links in your content.
6. Measure your results.
The best way to know that you are growing your email list is by measuring what you have done.
Take out time to measure the growth and performance of your email list.
Identify your weaknesses. Improve on areas you are lacking behind.
8. Don’t go on vacation– keep in touch!
Show that you care by keeping in touch with your subscribers.
Send out regular updates and try to address their problems through these emails.
Ask them to tell you their problems and how fast they want a change. That way, you can create a product or service that will meet their needs.
