How to Double the Growth of your Email List?
Gary Vaynerchuk talks about growing your email list all the time and it may seem like it’s a hard task to figure out but that’s where the majority of your growth starts. Let me show you what strategies I use to grow my email list.
A few things you can do to make sure you have absolute success with your building that email list is by first creating a call to action.
You can do this by going to your Facebook business page. At the top where your Facebook cover is there is a button with a few call to actions. You can choose test button, promote it, view insights, edit your button, and delete.
As you can see I picked out the “learn more” because I want it to go to the freebie I have available. In result, it leads to my email list, which is pretty awesome.
And you can also click on view insights to see how your button is performing and check the analytics.
The good thing about the call to action button on Facebook is that it lets you change it as much as you want or better yet increase your email list!
I started with Mailchimp at the beginning of the year and I couldn’t quite figure it out. You can tell I was just beginning because everyone knows how easy it is to use it. Bahaha..
I then moved to GetResponse and even though it took me just a bit to figure out I think I needed more work. I learned a few more things and unfortunately, the platform wouldn’t work with the mobile version. So, I broke up with it.
Finally, I moved to ConvertKit and omg it’s amazing!
What I love about Convertkit is that is so simple to use whether is a landing page or a pop up for your website its so simple and on top of that they have really good customer service for those newbies like me.
With Convertkit you add a popup to your website with a Freebie so people who are visiting your website for the first time can grab a free gift.
You can see your analytics as soon as you open it up, let me show you here. You can see different shades of blue, they each represent different opt-in forms that people use to join my email list. Talk about performance!
Another way I grow my email list is through the power of Pinterest. There I promote pins that may include checklists, worksheets, or e-guides and you can pin as much as you want, increasing your visibility and allowing you to collect more emails.
The beauty of Social Media is that you can promote your Freebies without paying for ads.
You can get some good traffic by creating a landing page where people can enter their email and grab your freebie, it’s really awesome. You can have as many landing pages as you want and promote several opt-ins all at once through Pinterest.
Email list is so important whether you’re a blogger, coach, or small business owner because that’s where the money is at! You have complete control of what you share with your readers without being restricted or limited to anything.
