I created the LIST LOVE master course because I’ve been where you are. So let me tell you my story. I started my DIY & Craft Blog (JenniferMaker.com) in October 2016. My first three months of blogging were a long, slow slog. I struggled to get posts out because it seemed like there was SO much to do—research ideas, photograph projects, edit photos, write posts, make promotional images, actually promote my posts. Ugh! Sometimes I wasn't sure what to even write about, and it was so hard to get people to visit my blog. I was doing ALL THE THINGS, but my growth was really, really slow.
“At Oxyleads, we all come to work every day because we want to solve one of the biggest problem in lead generation – the lack of up-to-date business contacts. We understand that lead generation can be a bottleneck for the business. The ability to generate sufficient quality leads in a reasonable amount of time is crucial to business success. That’s why we believe that selecting the best technology (with an added human touch) will make sure that no business will ever need another source for lead generation.”
Still need to gather more email addresses for your contact list? Fear not! With diligence and a little creativity, you can build a solid list of interested addressees through a variety of methods. Here we’ve compiled by category 105 strategies, tips, tools, and ideas to help you find viable, interested consumers to add to your email subscriber list.
Contests and freebies are great tools to gather emails from your audience. Who doesn’t like something for free, right? Think of giveaways, sweepstakes, anything you can give to your audience in exchange for their email address. Just like in a landing page example below, it can be anything from ebooks, whitepapers, to actual products or services you can give for free. Combined with Social Media, it’s one of the fastest and easiest ways to grow your email list.
A useful footer. Below your main content is the footer of your email. It should contain a clear and simple way for your reader to unsubscribe, as required by the CAN-SPAM Act. Mention why they are getting the email (they signed up), and how to contact you. Email apps often take care of this for you, but just be sure it is included. The footer area is where you could do “self-advertising” if you wanted to. Keep it simple, if you choose to do it, preferably just one or two “ads” or links.
Don’t read everything at once. There is a lot of great information in here, but it’s easy to feel overwhelmed after reading through all of the content in one sitting. Instead, take incremental steps. For example, if you want to find out where or how to ask people for their emails on your site, read the content in chapter 2. Implement it, then come back later for the next steps.
