Tools to Grow Your Email List!
So hopefully I've convinced you of the importance of email marketing. If not, please read my article Email Marketing - Yes You Need to Do It!
An Email Address is an Asset
Your email list is an asset, something that all of those social media followers are not. Email is a tried and true way to stay connected with your clients and prospects. But where do I start you ask? Well let's dig in a bit, shall we?
I'm a big fan of soliciting email addresses from my website visitors, as you can probably tell. My goal is to create content that my readers enjoy and find meaningful, and keep them coming back for more. The best way to do that is to subscribe to my monthly newsletter where I highlight the content that I've recently created. You've already subscribed, right? Here let me help:
One thing about an email address, everyone wants to get their hands on it. It's not just a commodity but a thing of value and you need to treat it as such. A lot of marketers now offer a discount or a freebie in exchange for an email address. It's a great way to encourage someone to sign up for an email list. Again, think of it as an asset.
I'm not going to get into the "incentive to sign up" topic here, but I am going to share a great tool for making simple forms for your website that will be sure to increase your sign up rates.
Utilize Email Capture Forms on Your Website
Using a high-converting email capture form combined with targeting and behavior automation will dramatically help you boost conversions and grow your email list.
