Building your list without increasing your efforts
Can I really show you how to build your email list without increasing the number of people coming to your site?
Yes, it’s possible by following some pretty simple tips.
But first… why should you even bother building an email list in the first place?
Here are 3 reasons why:
1. You get permission
When you get someone to join your mailing list, you are essentially getting permission to communicate and continue marketing to them via email.
By subscribing, they are telling you that they want to hear from you and what you have to offer.
2. You OWN your email list
You don’t own your Facebook Page – Facebook does.
You don’t own your Twitter profile – Twitter does.
The point is, when you build an email list of people who are interested in what you have to offer, you actually own that list of people.
It’s an asset you can use to build your online business.
3. You control traffic
List Building is the best way to get people to come back to your website.
Once you’ve successfully gotten people to subscribe,
All you have to do is send an email out to your subscribers with a link back to your latest post or information product.
If that isn’t enough incentive for you to start building your list today,
then I’m not even sure that making money online is the business for you to be in.
I’m not gonna start preaching about the “money being in the list” because you’ve heard it, one too many times.
I’d rather just get right to the chase and tell you how to build one.
Cool? – Great.. let’s go.
Most people, when setting out to build their email list, only focus on one or two ways of doing it.
This is good to start with, but once you see the true power you have by owning an email list, you’re gonna want to get a bigger one.
#1 The Blog Landing Page…
The blog landing page is used by most bloggers.
This is where you offer a free lead magnet (a report, video series, audio interview, e-course, etc) in exchange for the visitor’s email address.
The great thing about these pages is that you can create them in as little as 15 minutes.
Just head over to your WordPress dashboard, create a new page, add whatever you want it to say, offer them something for free, and finally include your opt-in form.
#2. The Sidebar Offer…
This is another commonly used method of growing an email list.
Most bloggers place an opt-in form on their sidebar in order to capture email addresses and grow their list.
The general rule is to place it on the top right-hand side, so that it’s visible to every one of your visitors.
But some people put them above the post, or next to the blog’s header.
Experiment with placement to see what works best for you.
#3. The Pop Up (Light Box)
This is by far the easiest one to add, in my opinion, but it’s not Free.
People have their own opinions about popups, all I can say is that they’ve worked for me.
