Growing your email list isn’t easy. Dose it seem like no one is paying attention to you? There are a few proven secrets the pros use that you can start doing now to get more email list subscribers.
Above all, the focus should be on providing value to your visitors. It’s not about you growing your list. It’s about sharing your expertise and passion with your audience. Help them solve their problems. Answer their questions. Do this and you’ll have people WANTING to join your email list.
Here are a few ways to do that:
Tell People WHY They Should Join Your Email List
This is one of the biggest things people miss. If you’re just asking people to “join my newsletter” or “sign up for my email list” that’s not nearly enough.
Seriously, would you enter your email address? I wouldn’t.
If you want more people signing up on your email list, tell them WHY they should. What’s in it for them? What value will they get? Here are some examples:
