How to Grow Your Email List Fast
In this article, We would like to share how you can create an email list by the rules and how you can grow your existing list.
First of all, we would like to explain the term permission email marketing. What is meant by the concept of “permission” here is that the owner of the email address voluntarily registers to your subscriber list. You have many reasons to get the person’s consent/approval. Simply put, sending newsletters to someone who hasn’t voluntarily given you their email address will be of no use and will not interest the person.
Add a subscription form to your website
The golden rule of having a permissions list is to add a form on your website where they will subscribe. For this, we would like to recommend ConvertKit, which provides free service up to the first 1,000 subscribers and allows you to easily add forms to your website. With short research, you can find alternative applications.
You can check a sample subscription form below.
You can automatically create such a form for a person visiting your website after 10 seconds, or you can show such a form to a visitor who visits x one page but has not taken any action for 30 seconds.
Who will not fill out this form for your sake? We mean, give them something. This may vary depending on your services. For example, if you are adding a form to an eCommerce site, you can give a 10% discount coupon to people who fill out the form for their next orders. Be sure, this will encourage the other party and increase the probability of filling out the form.
What is double opt-in? When a contact fills out the form, you can automatically send simple content to the email address they provide, such as “Please confirm your e-mail address by clicking the link”. The purpose of doing this is to really confirm that that person has filled out the form voluntarily at that moment. Otherwise, you may have e-mail addresses in your email list that does not belong to that person. In general, there is a single opt-in, that is, the person who fills the form directly registers to your list.
For now, we just wanted to share about subscriber forms, and how you can grow your email list by simply following the easiest method. We will share alternative methods in our next articles.
