The Ultimate Guide to Growing Your Email List

Email 1

Growing your email list should be one of your top priorities if you are serious about growing your businesses. Regardless of whether your business is new or established, an email list is something that acts like a magnet to help you maintain your client base.

Why is so email so important and why won’t marketers stop talking about it?

Marketers will not stop talking about email because email helps you to keep the customers or prospects that you have worked hard to get. Whether the person has purchased or not, the fact that s/he has joined your list means it is harder for them to leave. An Instagram follower can opt to simply unfollow you and move on. An email subscriber is not like this. Read this guide carefully so you can learn about how to grow your email list.

Step 1 – Find an email newsletter software company to build your list on 

Mailchimp is simple and free depending on how many subscribers you have. If you are a beginner, this is the best company that you can choose. If you are more advanced, there are options such as Aweber and ConvertKit.

Step 2 – Decide what your email list will be about

Do you want to use your email list to promote your business or to share ideas and insights? If you go for the latter, you will increase subscribers but if your newsletter is too promotional, you will lose subscribers.

Email newsletters that focus on creating value for the subscribers are the ones that see the most success. Of course you want to sell your products and services but you need to wait until the time is right to send an offer to your email list.

Step 3 – Be Consistent

Choose between these frequencies –

1 – Daily

2 – Weekly

3 – Monthly

It is probably better to send a weekly email newletter whether you are running a B2C or a B2B company. Daily is too much and can get irritating for subscribers while monthly is not frequent enough. Whatever frequency you choose, you need to stick to it regardless of what happens.

Step 4 – Use Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest to promote your list

If you want more subscribers, get clever and start using other social media platforms to get new subscribers for your list. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest can be useful places to find new subscribers if you create a campaign that makes sense.

Step 5 – Write the content for your email list

You can decide to use humour or you can be serious when it comes to your list. Make sure it fits the voice that your subscribers and ensure that you write in a way that is authentic to you. Here are some email list content ideas that you can try if you don’t have any content ideas yet –
