Last week, I wrote about why you need an email list if you want more sales.
This week, I want to share some of the strategies I’ve used to grow an email list.
We talked about opt-in forms and Mailchimp. Do you have that ready on your website? Great!
These days people don’t just sign up to mailing lists anymore. You need to give them a reason. Especially if you’re just starting out and no one knows who you are.
For product based businesses:
If you’re selling something tangible that you made like soaps, handbags, scarves, jewelry, notebooks, prints… here are a few options on how to spice up your opt-in form to get more sign ups!
So here’s the problem. My goal is to grow my mailing list quickly, but I don’t want to keep attracting people only interested in free stuff.
Having said that, I’d love to keep doing a monthly giveaway. Within a year I would be able to collect 3,600 subscribers!
I spoke with a few of my friends and mentors, read a few books and I think I have a solution to this. I want to grow my mailing list quickly while filtering people who will never buy from me.
It’s still in experimental stages and will take time for me to gather concrete data but I have a good feeling about that this will both grow an email list quickly AND attract the right kind of subscribers.
If you’re interested to learn about what I’m trying out, stay tuned for next week’s Building an Email List: Part 3.
