Some Tips to Grow Your Email List in a better way

Fast forward to 2016 and you’ll find that people only hand it out nowadays if it’s an absolute necessity. Who can blame them though? There is just so much spam going around these days due to sketchy autoresponder tools that would make us think twice if our email accounts are safe.

The truth is that the spam rate has fallen and is now less than 50%. Well, it is still very high – 1 out of 2 emails is spam – it’s a good sign.
Sign-Up Popups
Use sign-up popups on each page of your website. It gives your readers 50% content and asks them to sign-up to read the rest. If your website is subscription-free, then in that scenario, it is very important that an easy redirect link is available to readers on every page.
Showcase the Privacy Policy
You have a detailed privacy policy, right? Why aren’t you showcasing it? Include the privacy policy on your sign-up pages but don’t make it too long. Let people know you are NOT going to misuse their email and use this opportunity to build trust. Also, give them the chance to provide you with an email.

    Awesome guide. Downloaded the checklist and can’t wait to dig in. For social media, twitter lead gen cards are a great way to build your list. I think people don’t take advantage of it because they think you’ve got to pay for it, but you don’t. And if you’ve got an integration directly with your email service provider, it’s a double bonus. And if you don’t, it’s still pretty easy to upload the email addresses.

    Signup pop ups should not be given on each page of your website because doing so will irritate readers. However we should give sign up popups only on webpages that have more visitors. This can be more helpful.

    To me, Sign up pops is distracting. The best way to drive email list is to give visitors an irresistible offer which they can access after submitting their emaill address.

    I built my list to 12897 in 3 months using this strategy.
