Grow Your Email List
Below are five effective strategies to rapidly grow your email list today:
1. PPC Advertising
Pay-Per-Click Advertising is a very effective way to grow your email list FAST, if you have the money to invest. The way how it works is you pay ($0.05 to $0.50 on average) per click to have someone land on your website. You can use Google AdWords or Facebook or Twitter PPC ads to drive targeted traffic to your blog or landing page with your free offer. Visitors will opt-in to download your free offer and in return you have their email so you can contact them in the future.
2. Email Solo Ads
An email solo ad is when you pay someone to send out your email to their list. You can leverage their trust, credibility and their existing buyers. This is a very effective method to build your list fast. Another free alternative is email swaps where you send each other’s emails to your lists. This costs nothing but leads to rapid list growth. The best website I found was Safe Swaps.
3. Social Media Marketing
This takes more time and work but it’s free. You can use different platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube, etc and send out links to your blog or landing page to grow your email list. Remember to build up a relationship with your followers first, otherwise it just looks like spam.
4. Guest Posting On Blogs
Another free, but slower way is to guest blog on high-traffic niche blogs related to your market. Not only is it free, but it builds your credibility and give you free traffic month after month. Reach out to blog owners and ask if you’d be able to guest post on their blog. Show them samples of your writing. You’d be surprised how many people will say yes.
If you’re good at public speaking, teaching, or presentations, then you can build your list by hosting a free webinar on a specific topic. You can use GoToWebinar which is one of the industry leaders in webinar software. Your registrants will automatically be added to your email list when they sign up. This will also allow you to sell them the recording of the webinar afterwards to cover the cost of your initial advertising. After that, they’re all yours.
There are obviously countless other ways to grow your email list, but these are just a few of the most popular ones. Pick one and master it. The best advice I can give is to start grow your email list TODAY. You’ll be glad you did!
