Want to quickly grow your email list? Contrary to popular belief, your email list trumps, Facebook Likes, Instagram Likes + Followers, Pinterest Followers + Pins and even Twitter followers and retweets. If tomorrow, any of these social media platforms cease to exist, then what are you left with? Your email list is one of the most important marketing tools you have when you’re trying to reach or market to your audience. The trick is though, getting people to part with their email address. I hate giving out my email address in fear that somebody is going to violate my email inbox with SPAM lol! Don’t y’all hate that? I know I do. I make sure that I only offer the most amazing tips (like these) to my email subscribers.
Growing your email list is NOT hard. In fact, it’s easier than you think.
It took me a while to realize that growing a list is challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. I came across 4 resources, that will set you up to build an amazing list of subscribers that want to read what you’re writing, or purchase what you’re selling. The trick is to get them to give up that email addy.
One trick that worked for me was provide some amazing, useful and actionable FREE content. That’s right, give away something valuable for free. It can be an eBook, Worksheets, Free Graphics, or whatever is valuable enough that solves a problem for your target audience.
