Building your emailing lists is probably the most important thing you can do in your online business. By building an email subscriber list you can stay in contact with your customers, establish a relationship built on trust, and market your products directly to a responsive and welcoming market.
Of course it takes time to grow your emailing lists but there are a few methods that will help you to speed up the process.
While the methods below are free to help you drive traffic to your offers to grow your email list, you will, of course, need to spend some money on a marketing software that allows you to create a landing page, and build your list at the same time.
Many people use a landing page builder software app like ClickFunnels, and then pay another company like Aweber or ActiveCampaign for their email autoresponder. However, there are also a few tools that combine both a landing page or funnel builder, with an email marketing service, such as GetResponse, Kartra and GrooveFunnels. While all these software apps are good, if you are on a tight budget then I recommend you choose GrooveFunnels as it has a free version which will allow you to create both a landing page and use their autoresponder service (for up to 500 subscribers) for free. This should be plenty to help get you started and making money in your business before you need to upgrade to a paid account. You can get a free GrooveFunnels account here.
Here is an easy, step-by-step program that you can follow each day to continosly and successfully build your list.
Grow Your Emailing Lists With YouTube
YouTube is the third most visited site in the world, behind Google and Facebook. It is a great resource for marketers to build an audience, create trust and direct visitors to their website. By uploading one new video each day to YouTube you will consistently grow a traffic source that will always be there, encouraging people to join your emailing lists. Keep your videos short and too the point, preferably under 3 minutes. It should take you no longer than half an hour to record, edit, upload and SEO your video to YouTube.
Grow Your Emailing Lists Through Blogging
Again, this is a fantastic way to build an audience and establish yourself as an authority in your niche. By providing good quality and original content you will build a following over time, many of which will also opt-in to your list through your blog.
30 minutes to write your post and another 15-20 minutes to edit, include pictures and ensure your post is well SEO’d.
Building Your Emailing Lists With Twitter
Twitter is a great platform to build a following and attract people to your emailing lists. Sending just 4 tweets per day with your link can be an effective strategy. Don’t be annoying by continously sending your link to everyone all day or people will likely unfollow you. You can also go to fiverr.com and pay $5 to someone to tweet your link to 80,000 followers or more.
Follow 20 New People On Twitter Per Day
Steadily grow your Twitter audience by following about 20 new people each day. Good Twitter etiquete says that most of the people will follow you back. When they do, send them a direct message to thank them for following you back and include your link like a signature.
If at all possible, comment about something personal to the person in your message as this shows you are directly taking an interest in that person and will help to build trust.
Visit the profile of someone who is a leader in their field and view their followers. If the person uses Twitter a lot then it is likely they will have quite a large following. These people may also want to follow you and be interested in your products so follow these people. Do not scroll down the list, madly clicking ‘follow’ to every person in the list as Twitter will ban your account for aggressive follow behavior. Just stick to 20 per day and you will nicely grow your audience and also your emailing lists at the same time.
Building Your Emailing Lists With Facebook
FacebookSimilar to following people on Twitter, by growing your audience on Facebook you can reach a wider audience, post your videos, blog posts etc and direct people to your landing page. Stick to about 4 new people a day. When they become a new friend, send them a message or post on their wall thanking them for connecting.
Set Up One New Ad-Swap Campaign Per Day On Safe-Swaps
Safe-Swaps is a great place to meet other marketers in your niche and set up good, long-term business partnerships. Basically, you open an account and search for people with a similar list size as yourself and who is in the same niche. You both arrange a date and time to do an ad-swap. An ad-swap is where you email your list your partners free offer (ie their landing page) and your partner will also email their list your page.
Usually you will get between a 2-4% optin rate which is pretty good going. Doing this everyday consistently, your list will soon grow very large within a matter of months.
This is a fantastic method for growing your emailing lists and it can be possible to go from around 300 to over 10,000 email subscribers on your list within about 5-6 months if you are doing it everyday.
Make sure you only send your list FREE offers and offers that are good and relevant to your list. Optin to your partners offer first to see for yourself what the product is like. Do not do ad-swaps with people who have an unreliable rating or are promoting a sales page.
