There are many ways to build your email list, but some are much more effective or efficient than others. We’re going to look at some of the most effective ways to build your email list.
- Social Marketing – Perhaps the easiest way to build a list quickly is through social marketing. Sites like Twitter.com and Facebook.com make it very simple to get a lot of traffic quickly. Not only that, but their very nature makes it possible for your offers to go viral, quickly exploding your list.
- Giveaways – Giveaways can be extremely useful for building your niche, especially if you are marketing to other marketers. There aren’t many giveaways available outside internet marketing, however.
You can get notifications about giveaway events by joining the email lists of many of the top marketers, as well as subscribing to IMNewsWatch.com.
- Joint Ventures – A fantastic way to build your list is by exchanging mailings with other marketers who have lists about the same size as yours. If you have 500 people on your list, you could fairly exchange emails with those who have 250 people (about 50% of your total) up to around 1,000 people (about twice your total).
They will email their list with your offer, and in exchange, you will email your list with theirs. Just be sure to stipulate that you won’t email just anything, because you don’t want to lose the trust of your list members.
You can find joint ventures via forums, including WarriorForum.com. Just look for their joint ventures section and post there that you’re looking to exchange emails.
- Guest Blogging – Guest blogging can be a remarkable way to grow your list, because you can piggyback on the success and reputation of a high-traffic blog. Just let the blogger know you want to write a high-quality article for them for free in exchange for a link to your squeeze page.
These are just a few of the best ways to grow your email list. There are many others you can try, including video marketing, article marketing, safelists, solo ads, and much more. Get creative and you’ll have a larger list in no time!
