5 Ways To Get More Email List Subscribers
How do you attract the right kind of people to your emails? How do you get interested visitors to become subscribers?
Here are 5 list building tips you cannot afford to miss:
1. Encourage People To Forward Your Newsletter
Encouraging people to forward an email to a friend can help you reach more subscribers. When persuading people to forward an email on, ensure that they can click a link to compose their message online, since not all email programs allow you to forward images and attachments. In addition, by allowing them to send their message directly online, you can track how many people have spread the word.
2. Use QR Codes
QR (Quick Response) Codes are an up-and-coming way to engage the smartphone market online. These symbols which are like barcodes can be scanned and, if the information in the symbol includes a URL, the web page will open directly on the person’s smart phone. QR codes can be distributed almost anywhere, such as business cards, postcards etc.
3. Offer Special Deals To New Subscribers
Your opt-in confirmation page is an ideal place to present subscribers with an exclusive offer. Try offering subscribers a deal they won’t find anywhere else. This small step alone could represent a significant increase in profits just by editing your thank you page.
4. Invite Subscribers Through Your Social Networks
Your email newsletter is not the only way to connect with subscribers. Now that Facebook has updated its API, you can also post your newsletter directly to your fan page. This is a fantastic way of giving non-subscribers a glimpse into what they could be receiving.
5. Write Your Subject Lines Carefully
When considering your email subject lines, remember that people are now getting more messages piling up our inboxes than ever. It is therefore essential to make the subject line short, sweet and to the point in order to get the user’s attention and their gratitude.
