List Building — A Guide to Growing Your Marketing List
One tip: Offer a Giveaway
To make money online, you need to find people who are hungry for your product and/or service. List Building is simply gathering names and email addresses of those people, creating the perfect audience.
People love to get things for free; therefore, find something to give away. It really doesn’t matter what it is, your goal is to get people to fill out your opt-in form.
I came across this great article from Josic.com that offers five tips to growing your email marketing list. Following these tips will definitely make your list grow quicker.
The call-to-action is essential, but also ridiculously simple. You just need to end each article or blog post with a direct command to your reader letting them know what they should do next.
It can take up to six or seven times for someone to see your offer before they will even consider filling out an opt-in form. By being consistent in advertising your lead capture page, your audience will start to notice you. They will become curious; eventually filling out that form just to see what you are doing. Now, you are building a list of hungry prospects.
